From a Humble Cat: Continuing Lessons in Trust

posted by Charlotte Bell on July 5, 2011 |

A week ago I wrote about Mama Kitty, an 18-year-old feral cat who walked into my house for the first time ever (see previous post). I found her courage so inspiring that I blogged about it as soon as I sat down at the computer. Mama Kitty’s story did not end with the single act of courage she displayed last week, however; it continues even today. After writing about Mama

Lessons from a Humble Cat: Freedom from Fear

posted by Charlotte Bell on June 27, 2011 |

freedom from fearIn 1994 a small feral cat had a litter of six kittens in my back yard. Known by my neighbors and me as “Mama Kitty,” she has roamed my neighborhood, sometimes dining on my front porch, sometimes elsewhere, for 17 years. For the past year she has lived on my front porch, undoubtedly drawn there by the outdoor heating pad I installed for her last fall before the weather turned

photo by Roz NewmarkBalasana:  Coming Home June beckons us outdoors—to the rocks and rivers, and to our own back yards. Because June’s long, solar-powered days give us more time and energy for work and play, we can easily overdo. In order to maintain balance, we must make time to restore and reenergize ourselves. The poet Ovid named the month of June after iuniores, the younger ones. In honor of the youngest among us,

Ustrasana: Tap into April’s Abundant Energy

posted by Charlotte Bell on April 4, 2011 |

Color is back! Contrasted with winter’s palette of greys, spring’s panoply of brights invites us to open up, to expand, to step out after a long hibernation. Spring is the time for a deep inhale, a time to take in the vibrant abundance of color and new life around us. Even the word “April,” from the Latin aperire, means “to open,” in celebration of the opening of flowers and tree

Three Months of Pranayama Practice: On Flexibility

posted by Charlotte Bell on March 30, 2011 |

Back in January, I wrote a post about my resolution to practice pranayama every day this year. As my third month comes to an end, I’m reflecting on the practice so far. Here’s what I’ve learned—or more accurately, relearned: Flexibility is a positive: In late January after I wrote my first post I succumbed to what was likely a tenacious case of the flu.

Virabhadrasana II: The Quiet Warrior

posted by Charlotte Bell on March 7, 2011 |

virabhadrasana IIVirabhadrasana II:  The Quiet Warrior March is the month of yin and yang. It enters with a roar and leaves with a song. In March the hardiest of bulbs begin the arduous task of breaking through frozen ground, and by month’s end, their delicate blooms dance in the breeze. Named after Mars, the red planet with the astrological reputation as a warrior, March is a time of bluster and calm,

Nadi Shodhana: Purifying the Subtle Body

posted by Charlotte Bell on February 8, 2011 |

February was awarded month-hood relatively late in the game. Along with January, it was the last to be added to the Roman calendar in 713 BC. The addition of these two served to define the no-man’s-land of winter that Romans had traditionally considered a monthless period. February originally took its place as the last month of the year, where it remained for almost 300 years. As such, it seemed a
