Old Trees's

I am back in Mammoth after being away for ten days. I had an amazing time on the road but it is good to be back home in the mountains. The air outside is a stark contrast to the dessert. Yesterday I drove home from Las Vegas cruising into the Inyo National Forrest, experiencing the majesty of the Sierra's from the White Mountains. Beautiful! I passed through the White Mountains and took a brief tour of the ancient Bristolcone Pine Forrest, whose trees are the oldest known living trees on earth!

Back to Student Mind...
Before I left for Las Vegas I caught one more class at Exhale, Micheline Berry's Saturday morning class. one word to describe it, Awesome!

While in Las Vegas I was lucky enough to be invited to some hot yoga sadhanas at Moksha Yoga. A super fun grounding series with heat. I guess the 102 temp outside wasn't enough!

Student Mind

I drove down to Venice on Monday and promptly went to Shiva's class in the evening. YES! Tuesday morning I went to Erich's class. Then in the evening I went to Saul's class. Sean's class tonight! I feel deep gratitude to all my teachers today.

One day later I am still feeling gratitude for my teachers. Sean's class was super fun last night. This morning I went to Erich's class and it was awesome. Four songs of free form! Kick Ass and after the meditations, PEACE is now firmly in my core and deeply resonating from my heart.

Today is the last day of a month long, new moon to new moon, Shanti (peace) Sadhana. Tomorrow, I am transitioning into a Shakti (creative) Sadhana. Life is good, breath, love, live.

Off for a swim, run and playtime at the beach...

Peace ye'all

The Stars

What a day in Mammoth. I woke up early and had a nice am meditation. Then I spent most morning on graphic design. When I compressed long enough, sitting etc.. I had a some of acai sorbet, did some yoga and went to play Frisbee golf to and from my way to the warming wall. I aimed to explore some volcanic rock, I had a blast and started to break in some new climbing shoes too. Later, I got cleaned up and guided a kick ass Prana Flow class at HAC. I changed the time to six o'clock and was pleased that the sun cooperated for the first setting perfectly as we came to the end of class. Then night. I went hiking up on and near the mammoth rock trail. Hiking at night is so much fun. To cap it off, star gazing and watching the moon rise. It was another magical days with my heart opening in the eastern sierra.
