Fire in the neighborhood

The Power of Fire

Hunter and I got the opportunity to see fire at it’s most powerful, as it blazed across the street from our home. I was in awe of watching it burn. I had a visceral reaction to the flames, as I felt it’s strength and felt it’s power of destruction deep into my bones. As much as this fire was destroying the building across the street, I also new that it was transforming not only the building, but the entire neighborhood.

In Ayurveda, fire or Agni, is incredibly important. It is this fire that maintains and sustains optimal vibrant health…when it’s in alignment 🙂 Listen to this week’s yoga podcast and practice along to connect with your inner fire in body, mind and breath 🙂

Perfection Elsie. I’ve been in Utah for a month and a half visiting my family. I was able to take live yoga classes for the first time in 2 years. What a treat. But, thank goodness I had you to keep me doing yoga where I don’t have access to teachers. Grateful eternally.

Thanks Elsie,
I followed class #71 today and dedicated my practice to my mom, who is having surgery on her colon today. She is asking folk to light a candle for her. This podcast is great, coming at a perfect time and helping me to stoke my own candle for her. It is great to put aside unresolved difficulties and see my mom as a light to enjoy having in this world.
Thanks Again

Sweet Anna,

Thank you so much for taking the time to share. May your mother remain strong and healthy and may you also be all that you are. I don’t doubt that she will be fine, and that you will be even stronger 😀 Many blessings and healing to your heart and all those that you love. Saprema.

Good day! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog
platform are you using for this website? I’m getting fed up of Wordpress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking
at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me
in the direction of a good platform.
