Fun Shots from Michigan 2015

The Great Lakes are indeed Great and make for a beautiful summer holiday! While working in Michigan this year I enjoyed much of local Midwestern flavors and attitudes. Without a doubt Michiganders are some of the kindest and most friendly people I have ever encountered. Thumbs up to Michigan!

Thanks to my hosts: Amber and Kim Elve for visits to Grand Rapids; and to fellow yoga teacher Tracy Flynn and Christopher for a great Halloween weekend!

And thank you, Michigan, for the fond memories.


Good Bye to Song of the Morning

Autumn spirals into winter and we are weeks away from the end of this year. I am not yet used to writing “2015”. Is anyone else bewildered by this?

I was honored to work at the Song of the Morning Meditation Retreat in northern Michigan for half of this year. The Retreat is founded on the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda and is the home of a truly beautiful group of people. The following photos depict the autumn landscape. Please go to their website for more info and a complete listing of their offerings.

Thank you to all the kind souls that I connected to during my time at SOTM. May the new year bring so many wonderful blessings to you all!



Yoga Fest 2015

August 2015 in northern Michigan, what better than a weekend festival of yoga, kirtan (devotional music) and meditation? Arriving in March, I am currently a staff member and yoga teacher in residence at the Song of the Morning Meditation Retreat in Vanderbilt, Michigan. The following photos share some of the beautiful fun of this four day event, Yoga Fest MI. Check out their website for complete info.

I hope your summer plans include staying cool. Blessings on these Dog Days!
