New Certification

I am now certified to teach restorative yoga.

The yoga studio where I took the class is suffering big time because of the corona virus “shelter in place” situation. It used to have two studios and has now had to close one of the studios.

I found out that I passed because I sent an email. In my email I asked “I haven’t heard back, did I pass the course?” The answer was “I was not aware that anyone did not pass” SO, I passed! YAY!

I had planned to take another course to learn more about anatomy. Unfortunately that course was cancelled due to the restrictions in place, as I mentioned the corona virus “shelter in place” situation. It was going to take place at another yoga studio that is probably under a lot of strain, due to, you know..

So in the meantime I have been taking an online yoga anatomy course.

I continue to work full time. I am blessed to be considered “essential” at this time.

I know that there are a lot of people out of work now. In fact I know that there were many people out of work before all of this happened.

I really hope that when we find our way out of this mess, it is by turning to more sustainable agriculture. I think the way to go is to localize. No more factory farms, and no more mono crops. We need to start fresh with small farms, permaculture, regenerative agriculture.

Regenerative agriculture is a system of farming principles and practices that increases biodiversity, enriches soil, improves watersheds, and enhances ecosystem services.

You can support regenerative agriculture by connecting with small farmers, by shopping a farmers markets, and by joining a CSA. A CSA is community supported agriculture. Here’s a website that will link you up with a CSA near you:

I also found a great farmer at the website

I am a yoga teacher, and an electrician. I write a yoga blog, and I teach yoga classes online. My other blog is called End Lockdowns. In a democracy we accept that people have different opinions, and we allow those opinions to be voiced. My opinion which is that lockdowns are not scientific, and do not create healthy communities. The medical community at one point knew that informed consent was an important value. Currently the medical community has been split and there is a vocal part of it that thinks there are no issues with coercion and force in medicine. The part of the medical community that believes in mandating medical procedures and segregation is currently promoted through social media and other big tech. We are seeing a huge shift in wealth as a result. Poverty does not make people healthier. I do not think using force and coercion in medicine is a health promoting way to function. In the future, this will fail. It is only a matter of when. "Teach what is inside you, not as it applies to you, to yourself, but as it applies to the other." Yogacarya Sri T Krishnamacharya
