  • Schedule Week of 11/4-11/10 I awoke early this morning and got to witness a beautiful sunrise. I know that it will be dark earlier this evening and I had to sit with the thoughts that brought. Irritability. A heaviness. Then my mind wandered to our Nation’s midterm elections and my views on the patriarchy that is so pervasive. This belief system has caught us all up and limited all of us. I see men who stuff their emotions to “act like  a man” and then, hold that in the tension in their hips and backs and shoulders. And women. Sigh. Where do I begin to encompass the ways we have been affected by this way of thinking? So, these are the thought that run through my ...
  • Schedule for Week of 10/28-11/3. What!?! November!!!! Like Thanksgiving? Then Christmas? Then a whole-nother year? Is my heart the only one that leapt at this post’s title? It’s a good thing that Yoga reminds us to be present to NOW. The past is gone and the present is not a guarantee. How are you living now? This week, let’s enrich our experience of “now” by connecting to our breath, committing to being more mindful and doing yoga! This week, join me at : Peace Tree Yoga M/W 9am Bow Lake Community Center M/W 6pm and Fri 9am I can’t wait to see you! Lanta
  • Shift. It has been a week since I turned 50! A busy week. Usually after a lot of output (leading a retreat/a performance/an event), I set aside a day or two to unwind, process and refuel. Last week did not offer that to me and so, I plodded on arriving at Friday night curled up sound asleep on the couch at 6:30 pm. I vowed to make this week a little more restful although I knew Ron would be away on a business trip. That said, I booked a massage with my friend Siuzanne Jenkins of Kriya Yoga. My Yoga by Donation students had given me a gift certificate for my birthday and I was ready for it! The massage, as always, ...

  • I AM 50! It came. It went. This much anticipated event. I worked so hard and trained for so long and my knee swelled the Wednesday before and I was still in a knee brace having trouble bearing weight on it the day of my performance. Interesting. I would think that this would greatly upset or disappoint me, but it didn’t. My long time friends were in town and I was committed to enjoying their company and frankly, enjoying myself. The party began and I was able to greet most of my guests before having to go change for the performance. It was amazing to look across Sue’s Space, transformed into a Speakeasy and be transported by the dapper men and magnificent sequined, fringed ...

  • It’s Showtime! I woke this morning feeling excited that my friends were arriving! I ran through my checklist in my head….beds, towels, food… and then it occurred to me-it’s here! IT’S HERE! What began as a dream to become proficient in aerial dance lead me to a journey of self-discovery, reclamation and on my best days, self-love. I lost my father this year. I deepened some friendships and released others. I found a community of women also seeking to love themselves and support others in the process. I hosted my first retreat at the farm. It has been a big year! So, how am I feeling as the event looms in the near future? Calm. Confident. Happy. My knee is acting up. Me period which began on 9/26 is ...

  • I am a source of light in the world! I have just returned from co-leading the annual Peace Tree Yoga women’s retreat. The theme was “Reclaiming the Sacred Feminine”. I have found that when I am there, I can’t really allow myself to go too deeply because I need to hold space for our students, so when I return home, it washes over me in waves. Some years, it comes to me as deep soul weariness and others, I am highly emotive. This year, I feel strong and vibrant. At the retreat, we discussed masculine and feminine qualities present in ALL humans. We tuned in to our innate knowing and started to cultivate trust in our own intuition. Once I got home and began to unpack and do chores around ...
  • Schedule Week of Oct 1-6 Happy October! The air is cooler. Leaves are falling and sharing with us the lesson of letting go with vibrancy and clarity. These lessons are reinforced at Peace Tree Yoga with an ancient Buddhist practice called Tonglen, a meditative practice of sending and taking. We also kick of our Fall cleanse. It is not too late to sign up if it calls to you (contact Ruth at info@peacetreeyoga.com). I feel so strongly that Tonglen is what we need right now to build compassion, that I will also be  teaching the practice this week in my Yoga by Donation classes. So when is all this fabulousness happening? At Peace Tree Yoga M/W 9am The Bow Lake Community Center M/W 6pm and Fri 9am Its going to be ...
