January Reflections

As January comes to a close I can feel the shift in my soul. Light is returning. Days get longer with every 24 hour rotation. Sometimes the sun feels warm.

I feel the shift in things I’m making. Winter isn’t my focus. We have a bumper crop of babies coming this spring to my husband’s side of the family. I also decided to make for myself. I’m excited about my cushion covers and can’t wait to share them with you.

I’m excited about February. I’m heading to Kripalu this weekend for a weekend of intense learning and studying with Stephen Cope.

And the Super Bowl! I’m excited because my team is playing. Go Pats!!

I’ll be partnering up later in February with @teetimegolfblog to make more yoga for golf videos. I’m sooooo excited!! I’m also teaching yoga nidra at Hot Asana Yoga in Hampstead, NH on February 18 at 6pm. If you’re local, you don’t want to miss this awesome class!

And at the end of February I’ll be flying to Washington state to spend some time with my beautiful mom. My daughters will be joining me as well.

How has the first month of 2018 treated you? What are you looking forward to in February?

Wishing you all Peace, love, and prosperity in February!!

  1. Peggy, somehow your Huffpost blog about yoga and breast cancer came into my feed and reading it brought tears. I spent all of last year dealing with the surgery, chemo, radiation, all the while doing yoga as far as I could manage. As the treatment took its toll, it was more and more challenging and I went from vigorous vinyasa to yin and restorative but never completely gave up. I was always looking for those silver linings. Yes, yoga got me through it, maybe even saved my life. At the very least it kept me going and it certainly helped me keep perspective.

    During all that time, I asked myself the same questions you did. Who am I now? What is this meant to be teaching me? How can I make peace with my changed body? I think the emotional healing will take time but I did learn that those questions don’t really have answers. It is what it is, I am what I am. I am making my peace with that.

    I’m also a fan of unicorns.

    My husband and I are leaving Japan after 30 years living here and moving to a new life and new adventures. Naturally, we feel both excited and scared, so it was a wonderful boost to me to read your words about self-acceptance and moving on. Thank you.
