In Lady Yoga fashion, it is my goal to look back in history to see where we have come from, find the yoga in the moments past to keep us rooted in the present and passionate about where we are going in the future.
History is always happening! Today is Easter, April 24th. Yesterday the 23rd was the traditional birthday of William Shakespeare. Friday the 22nd was the 31st anniversary of Earth Day and on the 27th, according to German mathematician and astronomer, Johannes Kepler, the founder of modern science, he claims it was the birth of the universe in 4977 BC!!
In honor of the three, in the bloom of full springtime, we celebrate rebirth and awareness as our collective intention.

Be not afraid of greatness: some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them. William Shakespeare

I wish you well and so I take my leave, I Pray you know me when we meet again. William Shakespeare

The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change. Carl Rogers

What is this talked of mystery of birth but being mounted bareback on the earth. Robert Frost

Everyday we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t recognize. A blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black curious eyes of a child. Our own two eyes. All is a miracle. Thich Nhat Hahn

Earth’s the right place for love. I don’t know where it’s likely to go better. Robert Frost

As we grow in wisdom, we pardon more freely. Madame de Stael
