Gratitude & Following Your Bliss

This past Sunday I had the privilege of teaching community yoga at the lululemon athletica store in Marlton, NJ.  Our local lululemon store teamed up with the fabulous Off the Mat Philly/South Jersey throughout the month of November for a food drive benefiting the Food Bank of South Jersey & offering free community yoga each Sunday morning at 9:30am.  Drop off locations for the food drive are also at area yoga studios.  Read more at

The focus of my class was on the mantra “So Hum,” which translates to “I Am” in sanskrit.  Yoga is the practice of letting go & creating space in the mind & body.   Through the pranayama & vinyasa practice I invited everyone to listen to the wisdom of their inner truths (satya).  I also incorporated a vata-pacifying sequence to help root & ground after the upheaval of the weather the past few weeks here in the northeast.

My good friend & vegan chef, Christina Martin of Vegan Patisserie, was sweet (pun intended) enough to bring in special post-yoga treats for everyone.  Christina made vegan chocolate chip cookies & raw cacao date balls.  They were snatched up quickly after class!

Teaching this sweet Sunday community class filled me with gratitude & opened my heart to wanting to teach more group yoga classes again.  This past year I have primarily been teaching in-home yoga sessions & prenatal yoga.   Filled with gratitude my path of bliss became clear & I am now putting it out to the universe that I want to teach group classes at a yoga studio!

  1. First off I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question in which
    I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head
    before writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.
    I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
    tend to be lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?

    1. Hi. Good question. I think that your process is just fine. I often free write for a bit before finding a cohesive piece of writing to share. It’s part of the mayhem of the creative process.
