Svaroopa Yoga

Through the careful use of relaxation, breath work and precise alignment in supported poses, Svaroopa Yoga, as taught by Nicolas Dalton and Melissa Parsons at Padmalaya Yoga Studio in Millerton, NY and at other spaces in the Hudson Valley, releases core tensions in the spine and throughout the body. This is not your usual yoga. There is nothing quite like it! Svaroopa yoga is taught throughout the United States and in other parts of the world.

The Ozawkie Book of the Dead

If you can find this book by Elmer Green, PhD, you are one of the lucky ones. Based on journals he kept during his wife Alyce’s last seven years of life, he takes us into the world of Alzheimer’s as few people view it or experience it. A deeply spiritual man and a deeply spiritual woman transcend ordinary reality and bring back what they learn for the rest of us to ponder. It is one of our all time favorite books (actually it’s 3 books), rich in insight, both human and spiritual, and Elmer does not hold back. He tells it all, like it is, and we are very grateful.
