I will not give up my Yoga Practice & my commitment to being Ahimsa STRONG.

Ahimsa is an old Indian language word meaning “commitment to nonviolence in word, deed, or thought to one’s self and others”.

My practice changes as I feel my mind and body needs but I will always practice yoga postures for this once aching body with Rheumatoid Arthritis.  As long as I stay strong in my commitment to living the healthy, happy life I deserve, my emotions stay in balance and my body does not ache with painful joints.

When I was first diagnosis with what can be a crippling desease, I suffered through some tough stuff but I continued with minimal yoga asana practice.  I increased my spiritual and meditative practices to see this body through that season.  I am conscious of the needs of my body, my mind and my spirit and I treat them all with kindness – Ahimsa.

Because of my practices I’m back on the mat at least an hour a day and at 54 I’m taking it “as needed”!  I prescribe herbs, yoga asanas, self massage with the oils needed for the season and Dosha, I meditate daily, and I spend precious time with others.   WE are the Experts of our own bodies, minds and spirits.  WE do know best for ourselves, we just need the tools to live the lives we want according to OUR desires.

Join me in this journey of being Ahimsa STRONG!

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source.

Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.
