This picture was taken from our tent while we were viewing the mighty peaks, contemplating on things and enjoying each other’s company. Fantastic place made even better!

Most of my blog is about my gratitude journals. I have begun to teach gratitude workshops that combine Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction with contemplative arts and sharing my love for altered art books.
This photo was taken in Peninsula State Park in Door County Wisconsin. This is one of my favorite places in the world. Last Saturday was such a beautiful fall day. Of course I threw a blanket down in the woods and laid there taking pictures and enjoying the day. If you want to see more pictures from Door County keep an eye on my blog and it will have some more gratitude journal entries soon.
You know how it is, whenever you see someone in a crazy yoga pose usually people react with wanting to be able to do that pose too. “Oh it looks so cool!” “You’re lucky you’re so flexible.” “Show me how to do that pose!” are all frequent responses that I get whenever someone sees me in a more advanced pose.
I always take their compliments and tell that I’d love to show them a few of the basics when it comes to yoga. After that happens though, many aren’t seen again.
The longer I practice yoga and share pictures or videos on social networking sites, the more I realize that many people have a strong misconception of what yoga is truly about.
Yoga isn’t about the “fancy” poses. Yoga is about finding the best poses for you, the poses that make you feel good.
Now don’t get me wrong, I know how fun it is to be able to do all kinds of various poses but they aren’t something that I strongly desire. Each pose will be able to be achieved when you’re body is ready to take that step.
Forcing yourself into a pose creates tension and isn’t beneficial to you. Easing into poses and doing what feels good for your body creates ease and relaxation.
Introduce dedication, love, and positivity toward your body into your practices and in return you will receive just that and more.
Next time you step onto your mat let go of all of your negativity toward yourself. Make your practices about you. Improving you, taking care of you, and most importantly loving you.
Wow, always amazed by these poses anyway!

Here’s one picture of my toes from yesterday, got them wet running in the rain, some last warm days of this summer to dry them outside.
Here’s a link to a blog post that I wrote about summer holidays, and how in (even physically close situated) countries the holiday months are defined different way.
Have a nice August!
Nice shot, looks like they have dried off!

To the few people who actually follow my posts. Forgive me for this hermit-like behavior. Work and Work has really eaten up all my time, but I managed to squeeze in a quick break to lovely and scenic Goa. Here are a few shots of the beautiful Ozran Beach Resort where we stayed. Waiting to see this kind of tranquility again!
Looks wonderful, we hear nothing but great things about Goa!

Varun threw the fig-like fruits lying on the sand around. Vipul read. I took photos and then bored, decided to climb up a tree (in my defense the low branches were inviting!). Snails continued to crawl under our feet. Waves lapped. After a while we had lunch (cold beer and lobster!) and then headed to the room for a much needed siesta!
Looks like a pretty good spot!

“Here is a photo of my rather sun struck toes as I was chilling on the side of the pool at one of my favourite places to escape to, a little place called Pocitos in Veracruz, Mexico. “
Looks lovely and relaxing!
