Joe is one of the most positive and uplifting people I know. He has an uncanny knack for making people feel better about themselves, hopeful about their bodies, and ecstatic about just being alive. I ...have learned a tremendous amount from Joe in the past decade and I plan to continue learning from him for the next several. See More

Most of us will do anything to avoid being wrong. But what if we're wrong about that? "Wrongologist" Kathryn Schulz makes a compelling case for not just admitting but embracing our fallibility.

See you tomorrow at 11!?

This week: LUCK - Living Under Correct Knowledge - chest openers and climax pose = Pigeon.

This week: "I believe in Santa"
I believe if you offer an uplifting gift that brings light in the darkest time of year you are Santa!

Alchemy of attention: Your attention is the most important thing you have - your children, friends and family ask you for it. Your body must have it to be healthy. Your attention is the most important thing we have yet it is not a thing - it is what makes "things" valuable or irrelevant... Tomorrows class = Open to the power of your attention.

Happy give thanks day!
Will be teaching tomorrow (black friday) at West Asheville Yoga 10:30. Class on seeing similarity before difference. Love to see you there!

Here is the reading from last weeks class many of you have asked for:
A Hopi Elder Speaks
"You have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour, now you must go back and tell the people that this is the Hour. And there are things to be considered . . .

Where are you living?...
What are you doing?
What are your relationships?
Are you in right relation?
Where is your water?
Know your garden.
It is time to speak your Truth.
Create your community.
Be good to each other.
And do not look outside yourself for the leader."

Then he clasped his hands together, smiled, and said, "This could be a good time!"

"There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel they are torn apart and will suffer greatly.

"Know the river has its destination. The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above water. And I say, see who is in there with you and celebrate. At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally, Least of all ourselves. For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt.

"The time for the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves! Banish the word struggle from you attitude and your vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.

"We are the ones we've been waiting for."

-- attributed to an unnamed Hopi elder
