I love this poem by Rumi. It reminds me to keep hoping and trying.

Come, come, whoever you are.
Wanderer, worshipper, lover of leaving.

It doesn’t matter.
Ours is not a caravan of despair.
Come, even if you have broken your vow a hundred times.
Come, yet again, come, come. — Rumi

The Art of Yoga

A couple of Saturday's ago I happened upon a link from LA Yoga about The Art of Yoga - A morning of Yoga, Art and Music at the Getty Museum. Loving all three of these I was immediately interested and without hesitation grabbed my mat and headed out and off down the 405.

Ashley Turner led the yoga session with music by KCRW's Jason Bentley and this was followed by a guided tour of the Gustav Klimt's The Magic of Line Exhibition.

MBD - Monarch Butterfly Day!

The other morning I was teaching my outdoor yoga class at River Park in Ventura, it was a gorgeous sunny morning - which happens more often that not in Southern California thankfully!

Towards the end of class a beautiful Monarch butterfly came by and flew around us for a few minutes. I love these creatures and have been trying to create a more Monarch friendly habitat in my garden so for me at least it added a special something to the morning.
