The Countdown is On

Thursday, February 2nd, 2012

For those of you who have been following me, you know that I have an incredible journey ahead of me.  8 weeks from today I embark on the journey of a lifetime, and needless to say, I am incredibly excited.  Even so, I am staying present in the moment, completely enjoying what will be my last season in Key West, for at least a year.  We have had the most beautiful January I can remember in years.  There has been a wonderful balance of work and play.  My sister came for a visit.  Paddleboard Yoga and Yoga on the Beach have been beautiful and inspiring, and classes at Parmer’s have been fun, as always.  We are having an amazing season at Azur, I’m so glad the owners/chefs are finally getting the recognition they deserve.  Things are great at Isle Style, where I’m doing massage 3 days a week, in addition to my private practice.  I guess you could say that I am in the flow, or for you Abraham-Hicks fans, I am in the Vortex, baby.  Life is grand.

56 days from today I fly to New Jersey to spend a few days with my family before heading overseas.  Plans are made for 3 weeks in Europe.  London-Paris-Antwerp-Amsterdam-Copenhagen/Malmo-back to London.  I will meet up with my travel companion there, and then we are off to Mumbai where we have two days to figure out how to get to the ashram, which is about as far south as we can go.  It will be interesting, to say the least, as well as exciting, adventurous, and full of fun.

Claudia has an M.A. in Education from NYU and has been an educator for over 15 years.  It was as a Montessori teacher that she began to bring yoga into the classroom and find how transformative it can be for children.

Claudia completed her yoga teacher training with Yoga on the Beach in Key West.  Her classes are Vinyasa, Hatha and Kripalu inspired, including Kripalu’s Yoga Dance.

I will be teaching Monday evenings and Thursday mornings.  The evening class is going to be an intermediate class, with a focus on more inversions, backbends, and binds.  If any of you are ready to expand your practice in this way, I will look forward to seeing you there.

Travels South

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011

Road tripping from Key West to New Jersey, and back, is often an eye-opening experience.  I always seem to be at some crossroad in my life, a place of growth, change, manifestation.  Spending so much time in the car allows me the opportunity for contemplation, insight, self-realization.  Sometimes I laugh at myself, and sometimes I cry, but I always end up feeling better, energized, excited for my destination.


One wonderful destination this trip back to the Keys was Savannah, GA.  What a beautiful town.  I love the European influence in the architecture and the city design.  The city boasts 24 squares, beautifully lawned and oak shaded parks, within its limits.  One of the many wonderful things about yoga is that you can practice anywhere, so the one morning we were there, my friend, Dore Ann, and I laid out our mats in one of those squares. We followed that up with one of the best breakfasts I’ve ever had, at Clary’s.

Just a side note, if you are ever driving past the Cape Fear Botanical Garden in Fayetteville, NC, it is worth the stop.

Back in the Keys, we took advantage again, laying out our mats on the old Bahia Honda Bridge, practicing bridge, wheel, headstand, and more, at sunset.











If you haven’t heard me say recently, “I Love the Florida Keys,” well, I do, and it sure feels good to be home.
