My home cleaned my way.

An ecohouse (or eco home) is an environmentally low-impact home designed and built using materials and technology that reduces its carbon footprint and lowers its energy needs.

This includes:
Glass that has two or three layers with gas in between to prevent heat loss
Solar panels
Geothermal heating and growing plants on the roof to regulate temperature, quieten the house, and to produce oxygen
A wind turbine for when there is wind, and a battery if not

Windy Moon Sangha is a mindfulness community practicing in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh.  Thich Nhat Hanh is a monk, poet, scholar and peace activist.  As a novice Monk, he studied in the Vietnamese Zen tradition, and later spoke out against the violence and the atrocities in the North-South Vietnamese war. 

He implored other monks and Buddhist practitioners to take the practice of mindfulness and peace out of the monastery and into their communities. 

Our training is a foundational 200hr program approved by the Yoga Alliance. This program is designed to expand your teaching knowledge of Asanas and deepen your personal practice. You will receive the tools and support to become a confident and heart-felt yoga teacher. Blossom Flow focuses on breath linked to movement.

Since every teacher has their own style in the innovative method treatment, voice, and passion, classes will vary according to who is guiding. When choosing a class to attend, please note the level. To learn more about each individual teacher, please visit the “teacher” page on this site.

 
Donation Class: These classes have no set rate! There will be a donation jar and you are asked to give whatever you can be it $1, $2, or $10. These classes are an important part of making sure that yoga is affordable and available to anyone.

I have a tendency to forget where I came from. It happens to a lot of us. Life progresses. We change jobs, change ideas, change beliefs until one day we realize we have a whole new story. This is cause for celebration. We can see growth and accept our ever-changing story. But, for me, forgetting where I came from cuts me off from certain turbulent and influential life experiences, and makes it difficult to understand, empathize, and connect.

We all want to feel good. We all want to be happy. Most of us are surprised when what we thought would make us happy, doesn’t. So now what? Why does it seem like happiness is often just beyond our reach and each step forward doesn’t get us any closer?
 
Here are two great resources for learning more about our capacity for happiness:

Yes, I’m actually going to say it. Yoga is not a magic bullet. It does not solve all of your health problems. It is not a wonder drug, and it is not the beginning and the end of your health regimen.

“Your body is going through a change and you’re interpreting it as either positive or negative. Really, what you should do is get excited about it. The change that needs to happen in order for your new habits to take form is taking hold. It’s taking hold inside your body,” says Todd. “The most difficult part of the journey is the first sixteen days, but then after that, it’s a piece of cake. We don’t need to think about it anymore. It goes from conscious mind to our unconscious, or habit mind, where it’s happening automatically for us. It’s like a wave of positivity that just starts flooding towards you but most people don’t see it right away. That happens later.”

As Todd has described it to me, when you enact a significantly positive lifestyle change (new fitness practice, breaking off a toxic relationship, taking a new job), your brain temporarily floods your body with feel-good neurotransmitters, such as serotonin and dopamine. It’s your brain’s way of giving you a high five.
The happy-drugs start flowing, fueling your good intentions with seemingly boundless energy. Your commitments seem effortless. This is going to be easier than you thought. You’ve so got this covered.

by Danielle Laporte  from The Desire Map
Ever wonder why you feel oh-so-good two days into a new workout regime, only to succumb to lethargy, low self-esteem, and a bag full of fritos two weeks later? Everything was going so well! You were in it to win it—for real this time!
So, what went wrong?
I have a friend, Todd Herman, who’s a sports psychology coach. Like, a top-flight psych coach who helps people win Olympic medals. (And he looks like an extra hot version of Dave Matthews. I digress…) Todd has one of the most encouraging and illuminating theories on resistance I’ve ever come across. And wouldn’t you know it—it’s backed by hard science.

In a book I was reading recently called The Desire Map by Danielle Laporte, I came across this explanation of why we feel resistance every time we institute a healthy chance in our lives (like coming to yoga regularly!). We know it is makes us feel good, we know we need it, yet after a couple of weeks or even a few days we find ourselves skipping class for dinner with friends, or work, or sleep, or whatever. Read this excerpt to understand why resistance is actually an exciting experience that means we are on the verge of something great!
