The ravine bridge in the Village is a beautiful place to practice. I like how the bridge represents holding us up and supporting us from the depths of what life presents us with sometimes. It also represents the solid support that this sangha/community gives to one another in getting from one side to the other when it comes to challenging times in life.
It is also interesting that perspective can look totally different once we are on the other end of something. In life, many of us have had experienced darkness or as some would call it, the dark nights of the soul. Then we have the opposite of light and love. In order to truly understand (& appreciate) each one, I have learned I have had to experience "both ends of the bridge." It is finding the people & the places that are real, true & kind that will be there with us during the tough times. Our little studio has been a beautiful place of connection & care for one another. And without the students, near & far, there would be no studio by the Village. The exchanges of love & laughter before, during & after classes brings joy to my heart.
When one teaches, two learn. Recently, someone very dear to me has transitioned & moved on. She started out as a student and became more than a friend to me. Susan was someone who had the biggest heart & was always so kind to me. Sometimes you meet those people in life that change your path & you start to rethink everything in your life. She was & is that for me. She was a strong, graceful lady who always caught me off guard with her wit & humour! We had lots of giggles together. I feel honoured to have been able to spend the time I did with her. I am missing her. Until we meet again...
Every class energy is sacred because it will never happen the same way again. I am grateful for every student that walks in the studio door. The only thing in life that doesn't change is change itself. So for me it is important to say I love you. To give hugs. Because life can change in a split second.
Enjoy the beauty of this human experience. I have always loved the quote, "Instead of thinking we are human beings having a spiritual experience, we are actually spiritual beings having a human experience."
See you on the mat, a wonderful & safe place to take a journey...you never know what treasures you may find until your feet meet the mat.
Love & light,

These are all great questions to guide you toward what bracelet would best support you. You choose your bracelet, your colours, your chakra & your oil. These bracelets also have lava beads which are used for essential oils so once you choose your oil you will receive that oil sample that can be used numerous times with your bracelet.
