- Live each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each. ~ Henry David Thoreau
It’s cold and dreary in the Northeast, so this weekend my good friend Wania (pronounced Vanya- she’s German) and I retreated to somewhere in the mountains of Pennsylvania. We’re bunked up college-style with a bunch of ladies for a weekend of relaxation, yoga, walking in nature and plenty of napping. There’s also heaps of good food prepared by our yoga teacher Maura.

Winter; a yin season
We must have reasons for speech but we need none for silence. ~Proverb
Stop the words now. Open the window in the center of your chest, and let the spirits fly in and out. ~Rumi
What are you doing to take care of yourself this winter? Do you change any of your routines?
