love, Yoga

Smile! It’s Monday.

I woke up this morning feeling quite ill. I’m still queasy and a bit lightheaded. Hopefully I’ll feel better after some tea.

While I recuperate, try out a free online Pranayama class with Kia Miller.  I haven’t done it yet, but I think I will later today.  During yoga teacher training on Saturday, we had a lecture called Pranayama Basics. Laurie, the head trainer and owner of the program, wants us to practice Viloma and Ujjayi just to begin our pranayama practices.  I got lucky and found this practice  on Yoga Dork yesterday.  I already do ujjayi throughout my Vinyasa classes.  I’ll try out viloma before bed.

I’ve got work to do, so I’ll just leave you with this little gem from Henry Miller, found on my favorite blog ever, Brain Pickings:


Real love is never perplexed, never qualifies, never rejects, never demands. It replenishes, by grace of restoring unlimited circulation. It burns, because it knows the true meaning of sacrifice. It is life illuminated.


Have a great day, loves!
