Sorry for my silence! FY and I’ve been busy running around the Rocky Mountains having FUN! We both LOVE the West. I went to college in Colorado and he spent many years as a wildland firefighter based in Montana. We met down in Crestone when we were both students at the Crestone Healing Arts Center.
The real purpose of this recent jaunt to CO was to celebrate my big sister’s wedding in Aspen. I was given strict orders from the sis not to post any of the professional photos yet (and I was a bridesmaid so I don’t have any photos of my own) so I will refrain for the time being. But what I will say is that she was the most gorgeous bride I have ever seen! It snowed a bit during the ceremony making it a truly romantic “winter” wedding. Meanwhile it was 80 degrees in Charlottesville! Love it.
Before the wedding we spent a day in Denver checking out an acupuncture school that FY is applying to for next spring! This means we will be making another big move (after our wedding). I’m jumping for joy at the thought of being back out West. When we were in Denver we practiced Mysore with Joan Isbell at this sweet space in the Santa Fe Arts District. Denver is really becoming cooler and cooler in terms of culture, yoga and food.
After the big wedding weekend we snuck down to Crestone to reconnect with our teachers and spend some time on the beautiful land where FY and I first fell in love. We practiced Qi Gong with Dan, Kundalini Yoga with Sue, Ashtanga Yoga with Annie Pace, visited the Divine Mother Temple at Haidakhandi Universal Ashram and soaked in the hot springs. Let’s just say that after all that I am one happy happy girl! Crestone is my heaven on earth. It has got to be one of the most awesome places in the world.
Here are a few snapshots (point and shoot camera unfortunately, I’m too lazy to carry my big boy on these trips) from our long weekend!
Driving in Colorado is so amazing!

I’ll be back at the bloggy-blog for real soon.
Meanwhile check out the edited version of “Dear Mum” on elephant journal!
AND I will leave you with a question (your comments are greatly appreciated):
Do you think I should change the name of my blog to something easier to remember/spell? Is perhaps the Sanskrit name a bit more than the normal blog reader wants to deal with? I want to make my blog more accessible so I’m considering a name change and a bit of a make-over.
What are your thoughts?
