Thanksgiving is the appointed time for focusing on the good in our lives. In each of our days, we can find small blessings, but too often we overlook them, choosing instead to spend our time paying attention to problems. We give our energy to those who cause us trouble instead of those who bring peace. Starting now, let’s be on the lookout for the bits of pleasure in each hour, and appreciate the people who bring love and light to everyone who is blessed to know them. You are one of those people. On Thanksgiving, I’m thankful for you.
There are a few key phrases I’ve learned from you that are always near my conscience mind as I try go about my day with better posture and breath:
3 dimensional breathing
shrink wrap your midsection
shine your heart
and now, be aware of your dowager’s hump ( so not a sexy phrase *:) happy)
Thanks for the Scoli class, Anne. It was very helpful and pleasant and I’m looking forward to all of them.
Thank you, Anne! This poem is so beautiful and definitely touched my soul. Thank you for sharing this with us and thank you for such a wonderful class today. Your beautiful labyrinth was such a special treat.
Happy New Year and see you soon,
Thank you Anne! I really appreciate all the work you put into your classes … such a beneficial and enjoyable experience!
Thank you for the beautiful work you’ve given in these last classes since Friday for the first and second chakras. Warrior 1 feels like a great big hug from you to me! 🙂 I feel so blessed to have your support and wisdom as I am learning and discovering so much.
I am accepting that my work might mostly be to stop “working” and to let my heart (and my hips) just be present. Such a strange experience I carry now: realizing that I cannot sense where my lower spine actually is in space – and to keep understanding what that means – and what strengthening that area will mean!!!
Thank you, more than you can know – thank you, for the incredible work and gifts and blessings you bring to the people around you.
My life is forever changed because I know you . . . and the best part is . . . we’ve only just begun.
In deep gratitude, love and friendship,
Thank you for all that you share ALL through the year. Your kindness and patience are inspiring and your wealth of knowledge is amazing. Thank you for sharing these most important gifts!
Anne, really enjoyed class today. I feel all loosened and lengthened! Appreciated the down dog toes/heels move…my toes & ankles always need stretching. And I love those singing bowl chimes you play. Beautiful!
Just a quick note of thanks for the great Yoga practices. I’m feeling more fit physically, and have more clarity than before…despite being pretty rusty.
I adore you as a person and a teacher. It’s just the kind of “real” yoga I need in my life!
Very good session yesterday!!! My stomach is sore and that means I worked it! And I lifted a case of Costco water into my cart – then into my car and into my garage without hurting myself! Last time I pulled something in my back – so yoga is helping me greatly! Thank you!
Oh my gosh I’m in less pain than I’ve been for last month! maybe I just needed to take my class a little less intensely… Thanks for all you do!
Anne, you are are a wise and kind woman…whose family, friends and community are enriched and experience growth simply by your presence in their lives.
Can you believe it-an anniversary! A thank you to the Karuna Arts Yoga team, I have found this to have made the most difference in my posture, balance, strength, sleeping, breathing compared to anything else I have attempted. I appreciate the therapeutic approach to Yoga that you espouse. I am always also delighted with the congeniality and “culture” at Karuna. Many thanks to all of you!!
Last night was so lovely and wonderful. I really enjoyed it for many reasons but mostly because I got to see you! Thank you.
Anne, Thank you for an unbelievable year! You have opened my eyes, heart, and body in so many ways. Also want to thank you for the special certificate presentation. It definitely denotes the beginning of this journey into yoga. Love Always,
Yesterday was like a breakthru for me. Drummed from that new balanced and could feel my way into the music, even into all that complicated cuban stuff we do.
I love you. You are an amazing spirit. I see why you recommended the yoga woman video. You are that!!! The balance, union, and deep energy source of frequency and vibration that we call our bodies and egos. I’m so grateful that I got myself back to yoga. It’s social, and way better than the gym.
I can’t leave town without saying today was your best class I’ve attended to date. Inspired cueing and now I have a whole new set of reminders and moves to take back and work on.
