Why CYC is “The Best”!

 Our students voted Camarillo Yoga Center “Ventura County’s Best” yoga studio in this year’s Ventura County Reader Newspaper Poll.   Some have never been to another yoga school, others have been to many- all who voted cared enough to spend the time writing in 30 categories of local businesses they appreciated, including Camarillo Yoga, and including me as their teacher.  In our case, I think the idea of “besting”anyone else isn’t the sentiment that motivated us.  When I sit on my block at the front of...

George’s determination to keep up his strength and live life to the fullest, despite limitations due to an internal issue last year, inspired all of us at Camarillo Yoga Center.  How could...

Yogi Yo-Yo Ma

The richly gifted and world-renowned cellist, Yo-Yo Ma, ever humble, might not describe himself as a yogi, (especially after showing a picture of himself bowing low to Meryl Streep and commenting that he is “not so flexible”) but the essence of yoga saturated his recent talk and performance, “My Life in Music,” at Santa Barbara’s Granada Theatre.  It’s hard to know where to start (and stop) in describing what a wonderful evening this was, but here’s the quote he had visible throughout the evening, from the American poet, T.S. Eliot: “We...

“Adults need to play. We are working creatures, we are bonding creatures, and we are playing creatures.”

“Adults need to play. We are working creatures, we are bonding creatures, and we are playing creatures.”

The title is a quote from John Kelly, a sociologist, and excerpted from an article by Elisha Goldstein, PhD from her article in the Huffington Post, “The Essential Ingredient You May be Missing for Happiness.” The article was posted on our Camarillo Yoga Friends page on Facebook today, by Alene Schultz-Murphy.  Thanks Alene, for waking me up from my computer-work fixation, and reminding me to do something just for the fun of it today.  Bob & I are planning to play tennis, which we rarely do, despite the fact that Bob coaches...
