Reading is the Greatest Gift

Remember your favorite bedtime story? and how you begged your parents to read you just onemorebook

Some of my greatest memories are of favorite book with dog eared pages that I would ask my parents to read me over and over again.

The Sesame Street Classic the Monster at the End of this Book, Cinderella, Bambi, Curious George, Frog and Toad,  anything Dr. Seuss.

And as I grew older and could read on my own, I discovered Judy Blume, the Nancy Drew series, the Witch of Blackbird Pond, the Outsiders.

I have always loved my books and still do.  My ever growing library is filled with classics and contemporary books of all genres.

As a yoga teacher, one of my favorite things is perusing through the library, bookstores or Amazon in search of fun books to use in my classes!

Reading is truly a gift that was given to me every time my mother took me to the library or read me a bedtime story.

What are some of YOUR favorite children’s books from childhood or the favorite book you love to read to your child?

Exciting News: Book Publication Nov 2014

I have been away for a few months busily at work on completing my children’s book and getting it ready for publication.  It has been a long time dream of mine to publish a book that can be enjoyed by children and families around the world and in less than 2 months, this dream will be a reality!

I have always been a book lover and am excited to share my love of both yoga and poetry!  As part of my book launch, for the next month, I will be posting inspirational quotes about the magic that reading and books create.

I will soon be taking pre-orders for my new children’s yoga book.  Stay tuned!

Soul Sketches and Poetic MUSEings

It’s been a while since I shared my MUSEings.

from my journal to you…



I am HOLY,

a sacred INCARNATION of love


inhaling only love

exhaling only love

exuding only love

emBODYing only love


Love is my RELIGION.

sacred image



I am the sun and the shadows that it casts,

the moon and the darkness it illuminates,

the raging waves and the tiny ripples in the ocean


I am  every paradox, parallel,

polar opposite, twin flame,

every reflection

all wrapped into ONE,

ONE me which is you

which is ONE…


the ONEness of it all.

Red Hot & Holy Poem

I have been reading Sera Beak’s new book Red Hot & Holy and she has been blowing my literary mind and igniting my soul! Her words are raw, sensual and poetic, giving one an intimate glimpse into a woman’s journey to (re)connect with the Divine Feminine.  This is Sera’s own Love Story, but it could be mine or any woman’s story.

The book has been inspiring me to delve deeper into myself and embrace the fullness of my co-creative power as both a woman and a poet(ess).

Red Hot and holy Sera Beak

When a woman awakens to her feminine power, she awakens to her own divinity.  I have always known that my poetry was born of my soul, but I have never felt my own soul so alive until now.

I can feel this fire blazing inside, the words overflowing, like red hot lava pulsing through my veins.

In all my years of spiritual seeking, evolution, transformation, I have not felt closer to my essence…to knowing her, listening to her, BEING her and allowing her to blossom into her fullest expression.

Love is HERE.

I am HOME.

I will be posting some of my new poetry soon, but I leave you with this…

I was made to love (and be loved)

YOU made me this way 

YOU made me to weave webs

of love with my words
