Yesterday’s Good Things

The amazing recovery at Mt St Helens. I was in 5th grade when it blew and remember watching the images in class. How far the area had come in the last 34 years is amazing. It makes me realize that all things can heal unless you keep flooding them with the bad.

Mt Rainer is just beautiful

Walked laps at the hotel when we got here to get some steps in, hit my floor goal and move after 10 hours of driving.

Today’s Good Things

Unplanned stop in Tacoma - wonderful museums!

Best meal of the trip

Beautiful weather!

Hit my goals

Reading a great book

Heading towards home

I wonder if our country fixated on eating the things that were restricted after the war which has led us to where we are today….

The True Nature of Health by BKS Iyengar

BKS Iyengar 9/28/2005

Most people ask only from their body that it does not trouble them. Most people feel that they are healthy if they are not suffering from illness or pain, not aware of the imbalances that exist in their bodies and minds that ultimately will lead to disease. Yoga has a…

B.K.S. Iyengar  
December 14, 1918 - August 20, 2014

I would like to pay my respects to Yogacharya B.K.S. Iyengar who died today at the age of 95. Mr. Iyengar was a great inspiration in my life.  I studied Iyengar yoga for many years and really appreciated the intelligence in this system of yoga for aligning body, mind and spirit.  I painted this portrait of B.K.S. Iyengar (inspired by a photo by Martin Brading) a gift for his 90th birthday but it unfortunately never got delivered to Pune, India because of the terrorist attacks in Mumbai that year.  My painting focused on the spiritual side of B.K.S. Iyengar which really spoke to me. Most photo and artistic representations emphasized his lion-like fierceness or are images of him as a young man.  If you have ever practiced yoga using a prop such as a block, belt, bolster or ropes, you can thank Mr. Iyengar for bringing this wisdom thus making yoga asanas possibly for people who otherwise would be unable to do the poses. Mr. Iyengar also pioneered restorative yoga for healing and integration on deeper levels.

"Yoga, an ancient but perfect science, deals with the evolution of humanity. This evolution includes all aspects of one’s being, from bodily health to self-realization. Yoga means union — the union of body with consciousness and consciousness with the soul. Yoga cultivates the ways of maintaining a balanced attitude in day-to-day life and endows skill in the performance of one’s actions."
Your light will forever shine, and your words will ever echo in our lives. Namaste, Guru.
