#TBT

Happy #TBT everyone. Did I ever tell you about the night of a charity event that ended in an iphone photo shoot with my best gal and band mate Jenny from The Polyphonic Spree, Jackie B. of V.O.D. Boutique, our boys, and designer Jeremy Laing? Details are blurry, but I think we called this Urban Ashram.

I am majorly procrastinating the inevitable. I don't know why I try to clean the house, pack for a cross country trip, build a new yoga flow and Spotify playlist all at the same time, but I did.. or I do.. or I'm doing it now. You know what I mean.

I gotta run, but if you are in Big D come take class tonight. Schedule is here. We will be doing a little something like this.

Book Clubs. Nativity Fast. and Yoga. Oh My!

I started reading Christ the Eternal Tao with a FB Orthodox Christian Book Club at the beginning of the Nativity Fast (November 15th) this past Saturday. This month marks almost a full year of being an inquirer of Eastern Orthodoxy, and our family's first time to participate in Winter Pascha.

I look forward to sharing with you what that journey has been like, and how it has brought my yoga practice full circle on and off the mat. Until then, brew some Yogi Ginger tea, add some Mandarin Spark, and practice, because "all is coming."

Shanti Shanti Shanti

There exists a Being undifferentiated and complete, Born before heaven and earth. Tranquil, boundless, Abiding alone and changing not, Encircling everything without exhaustion. Fathomless, it seems to be the Source of all things. I do not know it's name, But characterize it as the Tao. Arbitrarily forcing a name upon it, I call it Great...
Tao Teh Ching, chapters 25 & 4 Translated by Gi-ming Shien and Eugene Rose

Metropolitan Philaret And Some Good Morning Medicine

The Morning Prayer of Metropolitan Philaret of Moscow

O Lord,
grant that I may meet the coming day in peace.
Help me in all things
to rely upon Thy Holy Will.
In every hour of the day,
reveal Thy will to me.
Bless my dealings with all who surround me.
Teach me to treat all that comes to me
throughout the day with peace of soul,
and with the firm conviction that Thy will governs all.
In all my deeds and words,
guide my thoughts and feelings.
In unforeseen events, let me not forget
that all are sent by Thee.
Teach me to act firmly and wisely,
without embittering and embarrassing others.
Give me the strength to bear the fatigue
of the coming day with all that it shall bring.
Direct my will.
Teach me to pray.
Pray Thou Thyself in me.

Amen.

The Rumors Are True

Hello out there. Yes, the rumors are true. Super Yoga Palace is back. Its really "official official" for 2015. This blog and a few other things are under construction.  I shouldn't even be posting right now, but I am. So.. keep up with this blog or follow @superyogapalace on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. Heck, do all three.

Just how is SYP back you ask? Yes, it will be a little bit different.. (like the fact we don't have a brick and mortar location anymore) but also, it will be a whole lot the same.. ( like the fact that it was never about the building anyhow) SYP has always been about our lives, keeping it real, being together, working through / out the kinks on and off the mat.

It might seem as though I've been MIA.  I will write about those details on another post, at a later date. I do promise to fill in those blanks.

So what can you expect from this blog? The same thing you expected when you took a class from me. I will share my life with you, the good the bad and the ugly. I will encourage you.  I will post great recipes, and share my current most favorite things. If you like, I'll even send you a little yoga love. Yep, if you are on the Super Yoga Palace email list, you will receive a private link to a Super Yoga Palace YouTube class. Maybe it will feel at though you never skipped a beat. 

More fun details to come. Until then,  I leave you with this not so ancient wisdom below.
