Yoga doesn’t have to be complicated. It’s just effin’ yoga!
“I have a hard time turning my brain off. Sitting in stillness. Being in my own head. So I reach for the earth, my mat, to literally and figuratively ground me.
Seven years ago I had two strokes and had to retrain my brain to do things that were once so easily done. My first yoga practice was spent in tears (and a lot of swear words). I didn’t really understand what each class meant and what style I would be able to do. I felt helpless. But I kept on trying. I applied for a partial grant through Karma Teachers and received my RYTT200 hour certification…plus a few other trainings.
I still have a hard time turning my brain off, sitting in stillness, and being in my own head. But Yoga has taught me to find comfort in discomfort and that intention is everything. It’s a beautifully sweaty journey with no end in sight because my destination is me. And I’m already here.”

Dinner and Documentary – Life Stories: Aging and the Human Spirit – PDF Poster
This video documents a group of senior citizens in Galveston, Texas, who gather twice a month to “re-member” their lives through poems and stories. We come to know and love these ordinary people who become elder guides for us. With honesty and poignancy, they model the art of accepting the past so that life in the present can be free of regret and open to affirmation.
With little or no prior experience, a group of senior citizens form a writing group. An endeavor that proves unexpectedly rewarding.
A surprising journey into the lives of older adults who fearlessly share their experiences that brought meaning to their lives. Sometimes painful, often funny, but always in focus, these life stories give hope that one, regardless of age, can find his or her own voice.
