Featured in Lucky Magazine

I have been waiting (not so patiently) for the January issue of Lucky Magazine to hit the stands. So every day I have been going to the grocery to see if it has arrived. And tonight, it was finally there!


I grabbed a few copies, quickly thumbed through one and weeeee! there it is on page 45. My Elephant throw pillow!!

So there I am with my 5 copies in line to check out (ok, I know 5 is more than a few). And the guy asks me...so do you know someone in this magazine? Now people, I really had not intended to fully dork out in the grocery store and tell the nice older gentleman at the register about my pillow... But guess, who went all spazzy and says "Look...here on page 45! That pillow! I designed that fabric!"? (grin, grin, grin) And then the bagger girl gets in on the acrion and wants to see the pillow and then the guy behind me in line wants to know what's going on...

It was a full-on display of Laurie dorkiness. But it was fun. :) And the pillow looks pretty darn cute in print!

Yoga holds that a person’s health condition depends on himself. It lays emphasis on physical, mental and emotional balance and development of a sense of harmony with all of life. There’s nothing mystical about it.Nor is it external. Rather it is an inner faculty. Yoga endeavors to re-establish inner balance through a variety of ways, ranging from the gross to the subtle. Which is why it is considered a holistic art.Rather than prescribe treatments, yoga therapy encourages awareness. Through age-old yogic techniques, we get to know ourselves better.From that knowledge, comes the ability to more easily accept and adapt to change, resulting in enhanced well-being in body, mind, heart and spirit. Hence its applicability to almost all chronic conditions.

What approach does yoga therapy take?

Contrary to modern medical science that tries to identify the pathogenic factor (be it a toxic substance, a micro-organism, or metabolic disorder) then eliminate it, Yoga takes a totally different point of view. It holds that if a person is sick there must be a deeper reason behind it – that illness doesn’t arise by chance. It is the result of an imbalance, a disruption in the body-mind complex that creates the condition. Here the symptoms, the pathogenic factors, are not the issue. Yoga believes that the root cause lies somewhere else.
