Thrive with Balance
Just back from Tuscany on one of my biannual honeymoons and my 63rd birthday. Flying in the park with my pal Sandy, the weekend before. 
When folks ask me for youth secrets, what they hear from me first will always be: joy, play, movement. By movement I mean mind, body, soul ongoing presence and movement, more than exercise, although that certainly fits in, when it is joyful for you.
I laugh if someone says "you're aging well," because I never think I am aging. My cells do not understand that verb. They understand laughing, loving, moving. Does a puppy, or a 15-year-old dog, think it is aging? They just thrive, and love, to the very brink of their tail-wagging, heart-on-sleeves existence. Our cells, like puppies, know how to thrive. Let's thrive.

Recently a Sister Goddess asked for secrets to a nearly 40-year, still growing, still adventurous marriage.
It's pretty similar. Thriving life, thriving partnership. Joy, Play, Movement.
We know from coaching that we have 3 core needs: Love, Safety, Belonging. We know from Non-Violent Communication we also have these needs: Choice, Freedom, Growth. They do not conflict, but sometimes we imagine they do, and that harms our relationships.
When we can own our needs and our partners', and support ourselves and one another in meeting them, we might just be practicing ... the yoga of thriving with balance. What a fun mission.
YINspirations Retreat Jan 4-10
The countdown has begun! It's just 3 months, 4 days to YINspirations retreat in the DR, in beautiful Puerto Plata, "silver port". Our all-inclusive resort has 7 beaches and 11 restaurants, and multiple pools. We've priced it super low, to encourage New Year renewal and downtime for friends & family....

We will do AM and PM yoga on beach and grass. Between myself and Donna Davidge, we have over 40 years of Yoga teaching experience! Yoga will include: Yin/Yang, slow flow, meditation, Yoga Nidra, Kundalini, and partner yoga. Classes will be custom designed to suit our retreat group!
Just time to grab the Early Bird rate if you place your deposit by midnight Oct.1st.
Otherwise, the price is still great, and a referral bonus still applies for everyone you bring, while space permits. Join us.
