But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, “Take heart; it is I. Do not be afraid.” And Peter answered him, “Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.”
He said, “Come.” So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water and came to Jesus..
But when he saw the wind, he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, “Lord, save me.” Jesus immediately reached out his hand and took hold of him, saying to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased. And those in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.”..
Because of Peter’s faith, he was able to walk on water with Jesus but Peter became afraid when he saw the wind and waves (worldly problems), and even though he knew he was already walking on water and protected by Jesus, the height of the waves made him lose faith that Jesus could calm the wind and waves..
When your life brings trials and tribulations trust that Jesus can and will overcome them for you. There is nothing He can’t do. Stay in the faith in the good times and bad. He will never leave you or forsake you. He died for you and He overcame death. He won’t let you drown..
One of the things I love so much about yoga, is there is no right or wrong, correct or incorrect ~ As long as you’re not going to injure yourself with out of alignment there really is so many ways to enjoy Yoga.
From asana, moving like jala (water in Sanskrit), to sitting and connecting with breath, prana.
Moving the prana and truely feeling through your body, connecting with body and breath.
Honouring how you feel within the moment, as every single moment is different.
Rest when you feel you need to rest, dance and move when your body kindly nudges you need that fluidity. To breathe and be within each and every breath, each and every movement.
My practise is more ‘feeling’ than ‘how I look’ these days, my own practise my eyes are closed for most of it, truely feeling, moving prana and energy through my body.
I am so grateful I have the opportunity to teach this beautiful practise to my students. I have watched you all grow, I have watched your relationship with self become so strong, honouring yourself, loving self to then let that love overflow to all the ones you love and care about.
My heart is so full, taking my yoga teaching journey to full time this year was the best choice. Looking forward to meeting more of you beautiful yogis in the new year.
New classes coming and more workshops, healing circles to come 😍🙏✨💓 namaste friends xxx.
MOVE FOR CALM! BOOST YOUR HEALTH! Moving especially OUTDOORS has the power to deepen our breathing, slow down our heart rate, lower our blood pressure, align body and mind, boost our energy level, self-esteem, confidence, positive attitude, and creativity. I personally spend a full hour outdoors everyday! I always feel tired coming back from work... Fortunately, I know the empowering feeling I will experience after a walk. I will feel relaxed, calm, unstoppable, full of energy, happy, and my mind is clear, organized, upbeat, and creative... It’s called self-care! We all need this daily parenthesis to stay healthy, positive, and age slower... Please take care of yourself!

Join Denise for this interactive hour of education, discussion,insight, and movement into how incorporating do-able “moves for life”can improve your energy, increase your strength and balance, prevent dementia, and decrease stress. Let’s strengthen your body & mind and improve your lifespan!
"Sitting will kill you”—this is a CNN headline that caught my eye a few days ago. In fact, many recent research studies have revealed that being sedentary and sitting too much will shorten one’s lifespan, diminish quality of life and contribute to the development of chronic diseases.
Slowly, but surely, we have arrived at a daily routine that involves hardly ANY #physicalactivity, intentional or non-intentional. We are now reaping the consequences of not moving our bodies. This should give us a clue, namely, that our bodies were made to MOVE—not to be sedentary.
The human body is an amazing and fascinating organism, which works BEST when it’s #active. In just a few minutes, physical activity boosts our metabolism. Research shows that physical activity decreases depression and increases self-esteem. This list could go on and on.
Further, it is important to realize that the human body contains more than 600 muscles, which is an indication that the body was constructed for amazing physical capabilities. It is clear that the human body functions best when it is active. There is #power in #motion!
Consequences of Physical Inactivity
Further proof that the human body was designed to move, are the consequences of not moving. Physical inactivity leads to deterioration.
As soon as one sits down, electrical activity shuts off in the leg muscles. Calorie burning is significantly reduced (potentially to as little as one calorie or less, depending on one's height, weight, gender, etc.) and lipase, an enzyme in the legs that assists with the breakdown of fat, dramatically and rapidly drops. After two hours of sitting, HDL (the so-called good cholesterol) levels drop by 20 percent. After 24 hours of sitting, insulin effectiveness drops 24 percent and the risk for diabetes rises. Sitting increases the risk of death up to 40 percent.
Hey, let's be creative and #move! 🤸♀️

Little challenge for you to try
-Reach for that rear ankle ‘area’ and try to completely straighten the front leg. -Drive through the outside of the front foot and try to maintain height of the rear knee. -Lock it in. Find that center. Remember last post? Ya there - that ‘spot’. Use you body’s leverage against itself...what am I talking about?? 🤷♂️
-Great gauge on not only mobility availability but agreeability 😉ya let me know how your body agrees with this movement pattern. My form is far from ideal let alone perfect and there is obvious differences between sides that I gotta work on. How bout you?
Tag me in your tries - I’ll share.
Keep watching for the obligatory deliverables and ridiculousness.
Happy moving city!! 🙏
On winter zen retreat, Rohatsu Sesshin. Grateful. Sitting wholeheartedly with a non-gaining mind reveals an ever-present, unnameable, ungraspable wealth, which is all of our birthright.
Here’s a piece of a poem I found through Kim Rosen- hope you enjoy!
from QUESTO MURO
~ Anita Barrows
. . ...he is telling you now
that all that stands between you
& everything you have known since the beginning
is this: this wall. Between yourself
& the beloved, between yourself & your joy,
the riverbank swaying with wildflowers, the shaft
of sunlight on the rock, the song.
Will you pass through it now, will you let it consume
whatever solidness this is
you call your life, & send
you out, a tremor of heat,
a radiance, a changed
