“Ramadān Mubarak, Blessed Ramadān!” to anyone who was observing the holy month of Ramadān. Many blessings to all, and especially to those observing Lent or Great Lent!


“Are you sleeping? / Still dreaming? / Still drifting off alone.”


– quoted from the song “Sleeping” by Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova


“And he became old in as many days as he had slept years;”


– Diogenes Laertius writing about the philosopher Epimenides

Please join me for a 65-minute virtual yoga practice on Zoom today (Sunday, April 2nd) at 2:30 PM. You can use the link from the “Class Schedules” calendar if you run into any problems checking into the class. You can request an audio recording of this practice via a comment below or (for a slightly faster reply) you can email me at myra (at) ajoyfulpractice.com.

Sunday’s is available on YouTube and Spotify. [Look for “07272021 National Sleepy Head Day”]

Here’s a little excerpt from my 2019 post on this date: “Upon hearing that the short story author Washington Irving was born April 3, 1783, some might suppose that today’s peak pose will be Savasana. Such an assumption, however, would mean that ‘some’ are making the same error as Rip Van Winkle.” [Note: Jane Goodall is also celebrating a birthday today. She was born in 1934.] Click here for to read the rest of the post and to practice the featured poses. You can also check out this 2020 post related to the playlist.

In the spirit of generosity (“dana”), the Zoom classes, recordings, and blog posts are freely given and freely received. If you are able to support these teachings, please do so as your heart moves you. (NOTE: You can donate even if you are “attending” a practice that is not designated as a “Common Ground Meditation Center” practice, or you can purchase class(es). Donations are tax deductible; class purchases are not necessarily deductible.)
