Just got back from Santa Fe

I spent the week with my teacher, John Friend, and 120 Anusara Yoga teachers from around the world for an Advanced Therapeutics Workshop. I'm eager to share what I've learned and will be leading a therapeutic workshop called "Yoga Shouldn't Hurt" on November 1. The flyer is attached here, and if you have any questions, just email me at

Please note some changes are coming to the VCM Yoga Studio - my Monday and Wednesday 5:45 PM classes are being suspended for the time being. Also, after November 1, the Yoga Barn will no longer accept teacher class cards. I will accept them at VCM Yoga until they're used up.

I had a magical time at the workshop, reconnecting with friends and basking in the shri of the kula. Watched shooting stars from the hot tub at 10 Thousand Waves. The week culminated in a trip to Taos to the Hanuman Temple. Sitting in the presence of great beings, surrounded by the shakti of Neem Karoli Baba, Ram Dass and others was a very moving experience. Jaya seeya Ram, jai jai Hanuman...


Breathing Out the Blues workshop this Saturday!

Join Arlene Stark Prisco and I as we lead you through a yoga workshop designed to combat the low moods that often accompany the darker days of fall and winter. We'll use asana, meditation, chanting, and pranayama as tools to open the light of the heart and dispel the clouds of depression. Saturday, Sept. 26, 2 - 4:30 PM at VCM Yoga Studio in West Tisbury. All levels, even beginners, are encouraged to attend.

Mid summer news

What a fantastic summer it has been for the yoga community on Martha's Vineyard! New teachers, new venues, workshops, the free community classes at the Yoga Barn and the Bodhi Path, kirtans, and new ways to build community between us - like this blog,, and Facebook.

I am pleased to announce that I have been recommended by Primo Lombardi for the Anusara Yoga Certification process! In the months to come I will be videotaping classes to submit to my certification assessor and completing a 30 - 40 hour exam. This is the final phase of my sankalpa, or intention, that I set in the fall of 2003. My gratitude for all of you that have supported me on this journey will never wain.

September 2, at VCM Yoga, I'll be teaching a workshop entitled "Finding the Freedom Within", an exploration of yoga and pranayama practices that are helpful in dealing with anxiety. This workshop is suitable for any level of yoga practitioner, even beginners. We'll use the Universal Principles of Alignment™ to bring ease of movement, grounding, and stress relief to your body and learn to breathe in a way that calms the fluctuations of the mind caused by anxiety. The workshop is 1 - 3:30 PM and costs $30.00. VCM Yoga cardholders receive 15% off the class fee.
