Lord knows I love holidays. I haven’t met too many holidays that I don’t get excited to celebrate. But Valentine’s Day? One of my favorites. Really. I know I probably say that about every holiday when it is approaching, but I really, really looove Valentine’s Day. I mean… come on- it’s the holiday of L O V E. What’s not to love?
You can imagine my excitement that I get to create a special class this week to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Join me on Thursday at 10am. Kick off your day with a gentle, energizing vinyasa practice that focuses on connecting with the heart center and being your own dear valentine.
Hello, yoga lovers! Welcome to Monday! I hope it’s going swimmingly.
I’ll be on the mat, leading an outdoor practice with the North County Yoga Goddesses on Thursday at 10am. This week, we’ll be looking ahead to Saturday’s new moon and integrating some of its unique qualities into our practice.
Intrigued? Join us on Thursday to work it out on the mat!
So, nature has had other plans for the North County Yoga Goddesses for the past few weeks, but I have a good feeling about this week.
We are meeting on a new day now- Thursdays at 10am. This Thursday, the 31st, is the last day of January, so we will be checking in with our intentions for 2013. How has the first month of the year been for you?
Join us Thursday to explore that question on the mat!
After several weeks of visions and revisions and an education in web design, KamelienYoga.com is back!! I hope that you haven’t missed me too terribly (ha!) and that you find the revamped site useful… and fun!
As you can probably tell by now, I’ve shifted gears a bit, moving ahead with taking my yoga teaching from the blog into the real world. While I will be focusing on meeting new students and building my teaching career, I will still be here on the blog with my insights and inspirations. Please check back often to see what’s new with KamelienYoga.com and me, Holly Richelle.
If you are interested in anything you have discovered on the site, including any of my yoga instruction services, please feel free to contact me today to get started.
Today was not only the new moon in Scorpio, but there was also a solar eclipse.
Mysticmamma.com is a blog and website that I thoroughly enjoy. If you have never visited her, I would recommend it highly. Her site is always full of such wonderful information and insights.
Today, for example, she shared this wonderful compilation of wisdom about the eclipse and its meaning in the broader picture. I felt like it explained a lot of things I’ve been feeling lately and helped put them in perspective. Read here and let me know what you think!…
Can you even believe, dear readers, that I’ve been out of commission with a cold again? I’ve been quite useless all week. I thought I had really put together a satisfactory defense when li’l man headed back to school in September. When he began school for the first time earlier this year, he brought sicknesses home about every other week. “Not this time,” I said. “This time, we’re coming prepared.”
Not so fast! Sick again.
So, (check out the brains on me) guess what I’m inspired to teach about this week? Yoga to support your immune system! That will be the subject matter for my regular class on Monday at 10am.
I will also be teaching a class in the park this Saturday– a gentle, all-levels-appropriate flow class.
Join me for one. Join me for the other. Join me for both! I would love to see you there!
I wanted to share this project with you. Yoga is a path of compassion and service to others. Karma yoga, specifically, is the yoga of service to others. I hope you agree with me that all life deserves the same compassionate consideration. I have no doubt there are many animal lovers among you… which brings me back to Karma, or Kharma rather.
Rita Spiegel is a student and friend- and her dog Kharma is the unofficial mascot of my weekly yoga group. Rita rescued Kharma during the fires in San Diego County several years ago.
Through her experiences with Kharma, Rita was inspired to create the 100 Cali Dogs… 100 Stories project. She plans to photograph 100 rescued dogs (she’s a professional photographer) and compile their “rescue stories” in a photography book with the proceeds benefitting non-profit spay and neuter programs.
Fairies! Once again, the fairies have made my day.
As Doreen explains in her reading, she is using the Messages from the Fairies oracle deck this week to call upon the wisdom of these “earth angels.” With the devastation left in the wake of last week’s storm, these entities that live so close to the earth can provide special insight.
See what they have to say about the upcoming week! I found it to be a beautiful, profound reading once again. SHOCK! 🙂
Love and prayers to all, especially those who were effected by Hurricane Sandy.
