It’s alive!

creatively onward classroom is open

It’s alive! My first ever online class offering is live and ready for those who wish to play. And it’s FREE! The 5 for 5 Jump Start for New Habit Nurturing is open and can be found in the
Creatively Onward Classroom. This is the first of several classes that are in the works. I am
currently researching, planning, shooting video, making audio files and attempting to focus my energy and ideas in order to bring you more, more, more. This is an exciting journey. I am filled with gratitude for those whose wisdom has influenced me throughout the years, as well as, those who I have yet to meet. Welcome to my Creatively Onward community!

Peace & Light,

Weekly Themes

I’m having a bit of fun as I experiment with using themes for my week. My thought is to organize my yoga classes, my personal creative practice and my daily living around a main idea. It has been an interesting experiment so far. July 10th our theme was Curiosity. What do you want to know or understand? Ask questions, compare and contrast issues, see the world from another’s point of view. Be an observer.

July 17th we practiced calling in Joy. This one was a little trickier. One evening, I was told the yoga class I taught was “hard.” I suggested the joy may come from it being “over” for the night. We had a good laugh. Sometimes that’s the way it goes. It is a matter of perspective. At times, my joy is derived from the nonsense of whatever I’m doing being over. Other times, it comes from the activity itself. A breath, an exquisitely drawn line, the color pink, whispers, a fabulous sunset, managing a stressful situation or person, all bring me joy.

This week we are working on Grace. Can you allow a bit of grace to flow to those who irritate you? How about those that light you up? Can you send a thought of grace to yourself? How well do you accept where you are today? Your best today may be different from your best yesterday or different from someone else’s best. Is that a problem? Can you find the grace?

Next week I’ll be playing with Freedom. Seems like some interesting feelings could come up. Until we meet again.

Go Creatively Onward,

Spring is a wonderful time for new adventures.

Green, pink, purple, yellow, white, color is everywhere. It is spring a time for new beginnings and fresh energy. And this means newness in my business life as well. The Universe keeps sending yoga messages my way. I am listening. It pleases me to announce that I will be teaching at Awakening Yoga Studio starting in the next couple of weeks. This is a great space in my new home town, with a wonderful group of yogis. If you’re in the area, check it out.

I have a few other ideas marinating, workshops, self-care mini retreat with yoga and art, and of course, the online class for my non-local friends. It is still in production. I’m getting closer. The tech is my block at the moment. If I wanted to contract it out, it would be done. But that’s not in my DNA. I love to learn which means I’ve been doing the work. I’m slow but consistent just like the tortoise. It will get done eventually. Until next time, go Creatively Onward!
