summer is here in the gorgeous Berkshires

Today, Memorial Day, I wandered the Kripalu grounds hoping to capture all that is coming alive in this amazing season.

Now that the Kripalu grounds are alive, I've been taking group photos for the staff. Here's a couple.

surprise bouquet

This weekend I was lucky enough to find a simple and lovely bouquet at my doorstep. It's so small that I used a double tall shot glass as its vase.

It was tied together with blades of grass!

leisurely Sunday hike

This weekend my good friend Jess and I took a leisurely uphill stroll at Bartholomew's Cobble in Sheffield, MA. It's a beautiful spot with lots of simple trails and a grassy overlook. I'd highly recommend it for any Sunday afternoon.

Check out the Trustees of Reservation to learn more and visit yourself.

Jess took this photo of me jumping for joy.

Yoga in the Schools

This week an article came out in Puranum, Kripalu's development magazine, about Yoga in the Schools. This is a program where Kripalu teachers visit a public school for four or six weeks to teach yoga in classrooms. It's an incredible program; kids love the movement and playfulness of it, and the teachers report that kids are more focused, better behaved, and more expressive after practicing yoga. Here are a handful of photos I took for the article.
