Just announced...

A different downward dog!

Thanks to Kelly for sharing this note with us...

"I am a new member of Beyond yoga and am enjoying all the various classes.  What impresses me most is the holistic approach, mind, body, spirit. 

I have a St. John therapy dog Charlie who I take to All Saints HS for "chill with Charlie" days. We spend 3 hours in the mindfulness and meditation room allowing students that may need the love of a goofy doodle time to unwind and be loved

I have taught Charlie some yoga moves which are a huge hit with the students and also with some PTSD soldiers he works with."

YOGA BEYOND WORDS with Cara-Lynne 
I hate the world today...

Have you ever had one of those days, where literally you hate the world, and perhaps yourself in the process?  Where not only are you frustrated by the annoyances of the moment, but you are so seriously crusty that you even dig up previous grievances to relive them in your brain just to fuel the fire of your fury?  I had one of those days last week.  And truthfully, it wasn't pleasant for anyone.

"I got a lot of problems with you people, and now you are going to hear about it."

It was around the same time I was reading various scientific articles on yoga's impact on the brain.  I know February is the month of hearts , a wonderful organ, for which yoga is also great.  But, it was probably better that I was concentrating on the brain, any discussion of opening one's heart probably would have simply increased my animosity to the point of no return.

*Thankfully, it was not actually Valentine's Day, but you get my drift...
