Running To Stand Still

Build With Us.

People. I am breathing deeply, practicing regularly and eating cleanly. I’d love to tell you I feel better than ever and just do x, y and burn a little bit of z and you will be as young and beautiful as I am…but, you already know the truth. We do the work for the love of the work, not the results. And, I have a hairy face?

Seriously, I have the tingle of nerves moving, not butterflies, occasional trepidation, as we walk forward through the late afternoon fog. I remind myself that yoga builds strong ankles, knowing each step forward requires a gentle balancing of the weight of my body across each foot as the risk of moving forward is weighed against sinking into the deep. This is why we practice.

Two years ago Gavin and I hiked along the Mountain Theater and around the radio towers, over the intergalactic space rocks and beyond the hippie swing; we brainstormed the base of what has become MPY OnDemand. Yes, it took us a year longer than planned and while we can not explain what has happened, we have an incredible OnDemand platform to keep you growing and healthy when you want to work out or meditate at home. This is an incredible platform we are continuing to grow and evolve, it was a pre-pandemic luxury that will be a post pandemic necessity. It’s not “done,” and yet I am proud of what we have built over the last year! If you are motivated, buy an annual subscription and help us grow!

This isn’t an accident.

What about In-Person Classes? When will the Studio OPEN? 

I move between the shame of us being closed and the care and attention required to create safe situations for us to grow together in. It’s a rollercoaster every single day. 

We are keeping outdoor options through Halloween as long as the weather cooperates with us. I am hoping for better air quality and monitoring the data on Marin, as long as it is safe to be outside, we are keeping this option available!

More Information coming about In-Person and In-Studio options for September-December this week!!! 

I hate teasers. For Real. We are still working out ideas for the Fall and if you have great ideas, or even crap ideas you need to tell someone, message me! We have solid options OnDemand and reasonable for outside. Bring your thunder!!! What have you got?

If you need to shift your day, put on Running To Stand, by U2 and let the music move you.

Peace and Love,
Jamie

Running To Stand Still by U2.
And so she woke up
Woke up from where she was lyin’ still
Said I gotta do something
About where we’re goin’
Step on a steam train
Step out of the driving rain maybe
Run from the darkness in the night
Singing ooh la, ah la la la de day
Ah la la la de day
Ah la la la de day
Sweet the sin, bitter the taste in my mouth
I see seven towers, but I only see one way out
You gotta cry without weeping, talk without speaking
Scream without raising your voice
You know I took the poison, from the poison stream
Then I floated out of here, singing
Ah la la la de day
Ah la la la de day
Ah la la la de day
She walks through the streets
With her eyes painted red
Under a black belly of cloud in the rain
In through a doorway
She brings me white golden pearls
Stolen from the sea
She is ragin’, she is ragin’
And the storm blows up in her eyes
She will suffer the needle chill
She’s running to stand still
