Music has a way of reaching our souls like nothing else can. I get feedback all the time from my students about how they love my playlists!

It used to take me a really long time to build playlists; I didn’t have a method to the madness. But now I’ve got [...]

Reflect & Respond

2021-12-01T14:47:05+00:00

“Now all of us, with our faces unveiled, reflect the glory of the Lord as if we are mirrors; and so, we (respond) being transformed, metamorphosed, into His same image from one radiance of glory to another, just as the Spirit of the Lord accomplishes it.” 2 Cor. 3:18 THE VOICE Is my face veiled or unveiled?  My response upon reflection; why would we have veiled faces? What does one’s face reflect? This verse is referencing the Old Testament account of Moses coming down from God’s glory on the mountain and the people could not handle the brightness of God’s glory [...]

Hurry Up To Slow Down

2021-12-01T14:25:26+00:00

So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger." Luke 2:16 (NIV) "Hurry up! We're going to be late to the choir concert!" "Come on guys. Help me tidy up before our guests arrive." "Is it 6 a.m. already? I gotta get to that door buster sale as soon as it opens so I don't miss out on the deals!" With the holiday season upon us, the music at the mall announces that folks are dreaming of a white Christmas. That may be true. But in reality, many women are dreaming of something else [...]

A Place Where God Spoke

2021-11-01T13:52:22+00:00

  Abram passed through the land to the place of Shechem, as far as the terebinth tree of Moreh. And the Canaanites were then in the land. (Genesis 12:6) The very place where Abram stopped, Shechem, we find the terebinth tree of Moreh. The word for Moreh in Hebrew means “to throw, to shoot, to teach” and came to mean “a place where God spoke.” This is where God spoke to Abram—in fact appeared to him. Now it shall be, when the Lord your God has brought you into the land which you go to possess, that you shall put the [...]

Chakras and Christianity

2021-10-13T15:58:01+00:00

Several years ago I became quite curious about the subtle body.  "Is this Jesus approved?  What does the bible say about this? Am I offering a spiritually safe practice to students?"  There is so much out there and even more differentiating opinions within the Christian faith.  I needed to carefully study for myself.  Let’s explore the science and scripture of our somatic energy.   Chak·ra /ˈCHäkrə/ Noun noun: chakra; plural noun: chakras (in Indian thought) each of the centers of spiritual power in the human body, usually considered to be seven in number We all accept the energy of the body that [...]

RECLAIMING YOGA AS A CHRISTIAN HEALING TOOL

2021-09-16T16:01:38+00:00

For real change to take place, the body needs to learn that the danger has passed and to live in the reality of the present. ~Bessel van der Kolk, MD (pioneer in the field of traumatology) in The Body Keeps the Score I have already written about my journey listening to the voice of God as I’ve explored yoga as a creative Christian practice. I also want to share another reason behind my exploration of yoga as I’ve sought the Lord’s will and wisdom in this somewhat tricky and controversial issue as a follower of Jesus Christ. I am deeply passionate about helping [...]

A Covenant of Love: Ashtanga Yoga & The Ten Commandments

2021-08-18T14:10:20+00:00

  My feelings about the practice of Ashtanga, referred to as the Primary Series, have ebbed and flowed over the years.  While I began my teaching with six Primary Series classes weekly and appreciated the comfort and structure it provided me as a new teacher, I soon became bored and burned out.  Not that each practice and each student did not offer something unique, but that I could hear myself cue in my sleep and there was little heart behind the rigid breath, bandha, and dristi lingo I regurgitated daily.  One could say I fell out of love with my first love. I think somewhere along [...]

Self Care In A Selfish World

2021-05-18T14:32:01+00:00

Treat yourself. Eat whatever you want. Watch as much Netflix as you want. Do whatever you want. This is how self-care is portrayed in the media. It is self-focused and giving yourself whatever you want because you deserve it. Self-care today feeds us what we want and not what we need. True self-care is not an excuse to treat ourselves to whatever we want. This is a good thing because when we chase after what we want, we often miss out on what we need. The example of Jesus paints a different picture of self-care. When we practice the self-care found in Jesus’ example, we can find the [...]
