Season of Gratitude

Season of Gratitude Every morning I pause to offer gratitude for all the many blessings in my life. Often it’s the simplest pleasures of life that bring a smile to my heart – from the beauty of trees releasing their leaves outside my window, to the insistent morning meows of my kitties and upturned belly of my dog just waiting for a rub, to the smell of breakfast cooking by my dear husband. When I sit to teach yoga, I gaze out at all of you and offer thanks that you continue to come together week after week to explore yourself and practice yoga, to experience its power working...

Best of the Best Five Year Club – THANK YOU MSY Community! Five Year Club Celebration! I spent last evening (10/10/19) at the Weinberg Center for the Arts in Frederick at a special reception and awards ceremony hosted by the Frederick News Post for businesses who had been voted as a Finalist or Winner in the Best of the Best of Frederick County for all five years of the contest.

To me it represented so much hard work and dedication on the part of all of the teachers and students at MSY to...

Truffles Charity Fundraiser Success!

Not only were the truffles from DeFluri’s Chocolates delicious (I hope you sampled a few pieces …or boxes..for yourself!) but their sale also generated a great profit for charity. Through your generous purchases, Mountain Spirit Yoga donated $750 to the Frederick County chapter of Habitat for Humanity towards their building project in Middletown at 211 S. Jefferson Street – just around the corner from the studio! This allows a family the opportunity to build the house of their dreams and a better life. Thank you for helping make that dream come true!

Just a few more minutes before the hours of Christmas Day wind down into the day after Christmas. I’m sitting here gazing at the waning full moon, reflecting light from the sun and my heart, so full from the joys of the day and this season.  So many laughs today with kids and grandkids  – some still young and others so grown, evoking memories of them as tiny ones tearing into gifts with sheer delight.  Today really wasn’t much different … except they were as grateful for the gift and the thought behind it as they were for the excitement of tearing open...

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because it invites me to pause and reflect on meaning in my life. If I begin each day with a moment of gratitude for my many blessings, the day unfolds with greater ease and sweetness. Some blessings appear readily as positive memories, while others are reluctant, representing challenges in my life. I know that all my experiences weave a rich tapestry of life lived and are worthy of gratitude, for in that moment of recognition, my heart opens to realize abundance – of healthy food, a lovely home, the wonder of teaching yoga, and rich...
