Dream Big


Culmination. Done. Something is closing so something can open and begin. That in there is a big part of my practice and offering. The center, Abhyasa Yoga Center founded by J Brown in Williamsburg Brooklyn, where I’ve been studying, practicing, and teaching for the past 9 years or so, has closed its doors as of September 1 after 10 years of operation. There’s a new owner. The vision and path of the new space are not my path and vision. That’s ok. Really. That’s ok. There are many ways to a mountain top. There are many styles of this wonderful process and feedback of yoga. We have choices in yoga, and within the act of observing, questioning, and choosing, there is freedom and liberation. How fortunate are we to have this opportunity! I wish the new owner of the studio nothing but success.

As for me, I’m scouting spaces in Williamsburg to continue the conversation. If you’re a long time student of mine or a newbie, be on the lookout for where and when I’ll be teaching, and feel free to drop me a line about anything.

As Kate Bush would say, “Ooh, I just know that something good is going to happen!

Isn’t it ironic, that’s another song, that this is happening on the Full Moon in Pisces? The Moon is the emotional self. Full Moon is a culmination. In Pisces, the Full Moon is dreaming big. I am. Are you?

    Oh no! I was just looking up the schedule to see if you still taught Monday’s. I moved from Williamsburg to Ridgewood a few months back and miss your class and so sad to hear of the closing! Where are you teaching now?
