Love and Peace

My students were quiet and very much withdrawn today.  Many of them had gone through trauma counseling before yoga class...they were emotionally bruised.  Breathing, awareness, and gentle compassion was the order for class.  They had to be reminded, as we all do, that they/we are worthy of love, joy and peace.

In this season, this holiday of love and peace it is important that we remind ourselves...we are worthy of love, we are all worthy of peace and joy.  The rush of the season, the hectic schedules, the push to buy the perfect gift, to create the perfect holiday these make us forget  what this season is about.
It is about light shinning in the darkness, about love for all,  and peace.

Take a few moments and breathe.  Take a few breaths and send love to those around you.  Take a few minutes to hope and wish and pray for peace for everyone.  And if given the opportunity, hug someone.


  1. Big hugs to you from me tonight! I applaud the wonderful work you do! I'm sure your students really appreciate you too...have a very Merry Christmas!

  2. Love and peace to you too Jilda. Keep up the good work even when the class is subdue. It takes time for the seeds to sprout and grow when it land on parched soil. When the warm rain of hope and love come down it will come to blossom.

    Merry Christmas.

  3. I'm sure some of your students will be a bit lost inside for the holidays. I wish the peace and happiness.
