I Yoga : Keeping it real

Last week I got my first mat burn ever. After the Kundalini class the previous Sunday, I was feeling good and clear headed.  I was a little sore, but my muscles were doing a happy dance, so I pretty much went on with it. On Monday morning,  my energy levels were through the roof. While getting ready for work […]

The Choice of Living a Life

I was born and raised in an island.  A tiny island in the Caribbean, filled with songs, heat, and humor.  The breeze carries a salty flavor that sticks to your skin on humid days.  A flavor that lingers on your tongue after swiftly brushing your lips in particularly humid days.  The breeze, a soft and […]

I Yoga : a Kundalini experience

There is a fire burning from within. I learned this yesterday at my first Kundalini Yoga experience. Kundalini relates to a form of primal energy that resides in all of us.  In Hindu tradition, it is also known as Shakti, which, citing directly from Wikipedia, means “power” or “empowerment”, and is the primordial cosmic energy.  It […]

The Power of a United Majority

“It’s historic!”, they say. “The biggest protest in the US history.” The times we’re living are times to be LIVED.  To open our eyes and listen carefully.  To understand what is being said and question everything. These are times where progress is at stake.  Times where the players in the political game are clueless.  Because […]

Books to consider: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck (yes, you read right)

It’s been a strange week.  It started quite peppy, but somewhere between the holiday and today, things went southbound.  Nothing specific has happened, really.  It’s just… I’ve been moody, uneasy. The highlight of my week, however, has been this really good book I’ve been listening to.  I was browsing through the suggested titles to download […]

I Yoga : Flowing with it
