No Yin scheduled on 04 July 2016.

 Taking a pause in Butterfly pose, during a hike at Pukaskwa National Park. A week up North without Wifi or cell service.  My iPhone addiction needs a break.  Add in some afternoon naps and I’m really on vacation.

  

No Yin scheduled at PJHQ for tonite. Hope to see you on Mon July 11th at 7 pm. Check flyer for details or email me at downwarddogdvm@gmail.com for more info.

  

I was happily surprised to see that the photos taken during the guided hike last year, to White River Suspension Bridge, were used for posters this year!

Being accountable to others would help keep me honest.  It would also make me develop my home practice because, confession time here, I really didn’t have one.  I’m great at going to the studio or teaching.  Meditation is part of my morning routine.  I love reading about yoga philosophy.  But the physical work on the mat was an area that I needed to grow.  So I publicly declared my intent to participate.
