Yogic Inspiration

One of my favorite things about teaching yoga is getting to know such a great community of other yoga teachers.  Today's guest post is from a wonderful, magical yoga teacher and Reiki (energy work) healer.  Thiery is wise and kind and teaches a gentle yoga class that has some transformative powers! She also teaches Reiki and she would be a great person to learn it from. Aside from all that, she is funny.  Read on.  You'll see.

(Contact Thiery Goodman at <> for her Reiki or yoga classes or sessions.)

In anticipation of the arrival of my son George & his rescue dog Betty, I wonder what new tricks Betty might surprise me with during her 14 day visit. George will travel to a North GA wedding & then on to Thailand. So far Betty has chewed up 2 dog beds of Leah's, a rocking chair cushion- both sides, & a throw rug. She scratched a gouge out of my expensive chef's mat. She peed on my yoga mat several times and pooped on a student's yoga mat (Yikes !). She's peed, pooped & puked several times on the only carpet I have. But those are not her most challenging traits which include being able to transform into Houdini or alternatively Taz in an instant.
I have to walk her with 3 leashes- one on her collar, one around her muzzle and one connected to her harness. Needless to say, I can't walk Betty & Leah by myself.
For reasons known only to her, Betty will turn into a Tasmanian devil (usually there's a motorcycle or another dog involved, but not necessarily) and free herself of all encumbrances and act as though she will tear you up. She is equally adept at finding her way out of the backyard fence.

Do you think she comes when I call ? No, she does not. And since I have no hope of catching her by myself it will involve at least 3 of my hapless neighbors to do so. She deservedly earned a reputation after being here only a week. Over the years Betty nonetheless has endeared all (well mostly) who meet her. And to give her & George credit, she has calmed & is better behaved overall.

What Betty has that all of us could benefit from, is a happy face and disposition. 
She exudes joy & looks at you with eyes that say she knows something wonderful is about to happen. So much so that you feel compelled to make it so. Even when I have to put her in Pratyahara (yogic term of removal of the senses) which for her means a room with curtains drawn & a fan on so she can't see or hear so that I can conduct a class (she's still learning her yoga manners)- afterwards she exits with no hard feelings and ready for the next great thing.

If I feel so compelled to fill her expectations- what of the Energies that watch after us ?
Will They feel compelled to make it so in our behalf ?

Just in case, I think tomorrow I will rise, look up with a smile & say " I wonder what wonderful thing is going to happen today ! "

dog beds on Tuesday, September 20, 2016 11:15 PM
My dogs really enjoy the dog beds I got them on crazysales. It took them a small amount of while to heat on it but now there does exist constantly one to it. We have two different beds side by side additionally they always take this bed first. Our boy dog stood within the girl dog and made her leave to ensure he might get into it even though the other bed was open.
