It’s that time again – Join us in celebrating the official start of Winter with a Warm Yoga Mala! We will attempt (and succeed!) in completing 108 Sun Salutations to welcome the season.

“Summer, after all, is a time when wonderful things can happen to quiet people. For those few months, you’re not required to be who everyone thinks you are, and that cut-grass smell in the air and the chance to dive into the deep end of a pool give you a courage you don’t have the rest of the year. You can be grateful and easy, with no eyes on you, and no past. Summer just opens the door and lets you out.” ―Deb Caletti, Honey, Baby, Sweetheart.

  • ASSE is looking for host families. This non-profit organization places students from all over the world with host families in the USA for semesters and school years, so that these students may immerse themselves in our culture, while learning English and improving international relations. They currently have two teenage girls from the Ukraine and Thailand who practice yoga and are in need of host families. These students are ambassadors for their respective countries and are exceptionally bright and talented youngsters.  As a non-profit, ASSE does not pay host families. There are no fees associated with this experience. The host family is just asked to provide sufficient room and board for the student and allow them to become part of the family for the duration of their stay. Students arrive with excellent health insurance coverage and use their own pocket money for any extracurricular activities or meals purchased outside of the home (with the exception of family dinners). Students are academically esteemed with excellent reputations in their home countries and expect to contribute to daily family life, including activities and chores. Also, each student and host family is assigned an Area Representative who is available for support for the duration of his/her stay. If you are interested in learning more, please visit their website: http://www.host.asse.com or contact us and we will connect you with the area representative.

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.
