I spent this past weekend at a Jivamukti workshop in Oslo. Øystein and Niclas were here in January at the Yoga Festival and their class moved and inspired me. I loved the spirituality that was weaved in between the asanas, the challenging poses that were set to perfect tunes and the energy from the instructors that brought us all into the present moment. This past weekend did not disappoint me, the class was intimately small and gave us all time to enhance our practice with guided assistance. Saturdays class left me feeling cracked open, vulnerable but alive, while Sundays class brought be back to earth, grounded and complete. They both give yoga the energy I search for, the presence I love and push me over my own comfort zone. They create an exhilarating experience filled with possibilities. This clip was played to start off our practice yesterday, I feel it should be a clip that is played every morning.

I love a good book. The comfort and enjoyment I get from those pages in a novel always bring me to a state of being grounded.

This week I will be slowing down and letting the pages and words soak in, settle and ground me. Here are a few of my favorite past reads:
