Your Wisdom is Always Available
Sadly, the current pandemic has essentially knocked out my yoga teaching career. Given that this will not end anytime soon, I have made the decision to parlay this experience into new opportunities. After 20 years of having the privilege of sitting in front of you and encouraging your well being, I have decided to take a break from teaching yoga until gathering in a studio is safe once again.
I sincerely look forward to gathering together once again to do this important work. But until that time, please feel welcome to do a few of my free YouTube Sunrise Yoga in Hawaii class - link HERE -and of course, I invite you to enjoy my vintage workout Practical Yoga for Everyday People - seen below - Own it and do it often for the price of one yoga class!
Here’s to wishing we will gathering once again in some far-off, beautiful location, so we can do the healing work that allows us to live life with a sense of beauty, freedom and possibility. Until that time, stay safe and find joy in each day, each moment, whenever possible.
Namaste & Sat Nam!

Will at Four Seasons Lanai
It Took 20 Years, But I Finally Learned to Like Yoga.
I took a trip never expecting to change my mind about something I had hated for so long. But I finally discovered what was holding me back.
Can Love for Yoga Be Learned?.
I really hate yoga...but it's too healthy not to do.
At the end of class, I didn’t just want to bow and say “namaste” to Will—I wanted to give him a hug.
WISDOM FOR EVERYDAY PEOPLE
"...Our breath is something that is always with us, always available… Yogis discovered many centuries ago that just adjusting the breath, even subtly, can immediately impact our nervous system, and thus impact how we experience the world around us...."
Will Donnelly, in Practical Yoga’s Wisdom for Everyday People
Chapter 39, Page 152, "Make Inspiration Soar"
