About Namaste Connections
The idea for Namaste Connections evolved from a twenty-year practice of daily journaling, yoga, mindfulness and, not to be diminished, almost sixty years of
"Living the Full Catastrophe!" -
a life filled with uncertainty, illness, stress, loss, grief alongside joy, hope, love, and connection.
Through all of it, my practices of yoga and mindfulness have served as a lifeline and helped me to find grace and balance again and again.
As I stretch and gain some wisdom, I find great joy in passing on to my students what I have learned; practices that open my heart and mind, words that help and inspire me, offered with a generous dose of humility and compassion. In these exchanges with my students, I always learn more. Most importantly, through them, I experience a deep sense of connection.
I began to think of the close affiliations with my students as Namaste Connections, moments where we see the face of God in each other.
Scientific research validates what I have come to know at my core - Namaste Connections are vital to our well being and key to aging with wellness.
Through this site, you'll find -
resources on aging issues and attitudes,
tools for living with mindfulness,
sustainable yoga practices,
inspiration to begin again . . . and again!
Namaste Connections is born out of a fire of commitment to share my light. Together may our lives shine with a flame that we carry to all we encounter.
