Planning For Your Future By Being Present

This morning Ron and I spent our breakfast time together trying to predict the future seeding in the Western Conference. It started out innocently enough, looking at the future for our beloved Spurs. But then we felt we also needed to look at the other teams in contention. We debated, we laughed, we joked — we even did math.And while we were looking at the future, we were totally present together.

Yoga's present to you is being present. Even if you're looking forward to what you want, or looking back and reminiscing about what you have already received — when you come onto the yoga mat, you can have a 360 Degree You. You become centered and balanced.

Planning with another person may not change the outcome, but it does change the relationship with the person you're planning with. For us, it was our Spurs winning their way to the top end of the bracket, but it could be anything. It could be planning a trip, one we may never take. Or looking forward to how we'll be enjoying birthdays with our grandchildren. I look toward the future and see how old I'll be when they're out of high school, or out of college.  I plan to be present for them.

You can plan and still release your expectations. The outcome doesn't matter, because for us the benefit was happening in our present moment of  sharing. It's fun to do with a partner, or a good friend, or anyone of a like mind.


On this morning when lots of people are thinking about basketball, we were sharing hopes and fears. Something as innocent as looking forward to our Spurs winning. It was allowing us to practice for more serious matters than may lie ahead.

It seems that all of life is a practice, isn't it?

HeavyWeight Yoga in Austin, in Houston, and on the video screen

Heights-Library-Taping-300x225I’m so excited this morning, because HeavyWeight Yoga is stretching out to embrace new students. This morning the TV news shows in Houston (Great Day Houston) as well as in Austin (Good Day Austin) featured segments to show off HeavyWeight Yoga and my newest DVD. On KHOU in Houston, we even introduced two local HeavyWeight Yoga teachers.

In Houston people saw me practicing with fitness reporter Courtney Perna at the classic Heights Branch library as part of her Channel 4 broadcasts Think Outside The Gym. On that show I was joined by two Houston-area HeavyWeight Yoga instructors, Lea Ann Deel ( as well as Rowan Twosisters, who’s integrated my HeavyWeight Yoga with her Hottie Hoop Camp.

But if you’re not able to make that 3-Sunday series that Lea Ann offers in the Houston area, you can also sign up for my next HeavyYoga Women’s Retreat, May 22-24. If you can’t make my retreat event (so very special, and close to Houston — plus you get $100 off registering early) you can practice with me using my newest DVD.

Being in a class or a retreat space is a wonderful way to begin. Whenever you want to practice, I’m there for you, on any of my three DVDs. Lea’s Houston classes start this Sunday, Feb. 22, at Niamoves. Register with her at the studio’s website.

In Austin, the local Fox TV affiliate Channel 7 just ran three reports on HeavyWeight Yoga here on President’s Day. It was great to wake up to yoga on my screen. But that’s something everybody can do with my DVDs, too.

I want to connect to you any way that I can, either on the screen, in a retreat, or with a HeavyWeight Yoga teacher in the room with you. My Austin classes meet on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursday and Saturdays. After my Wednesday evening classes here in Austin, I’m out on a trip to see my niece Megan get married over this coming weekend — but I’ll be back next week starting Wednesday (Feb. 25) for a full slate of my local classes. I hope I’ll see you on the mat with me!
