Dear Moms near and far,
Ever asked yourself, who invented Mother’s Day in the USA? This year I checked it and found out: ANNA JARVIS of Philadelphia, whose mother had organized women’s groups to promote friendship and health, originated Mother’s Day. On May 12, 1908, she held a memorial service at her late mother’s church in Grafton, West Virginia. It became an official U.S. Holiday in 1914.
It’s probably the day, where the most flower bouquets get sold and are offered to moms by their husbands and kids, to make up for all the trouble they cause during the year.
We wish you a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend!
Namaste, RoxAnn and Rolf
Last Friday we went for a second time (within 3 weeks) to see the fabulous show ‘American Utopia’ by David Byrne ( former Talking Heads member) and his outstanding ensemble. Again we were amazed by the fantastic performance and great atmosphere in the St. James Theater.
Taking the ferry from Weehawken (NJ) turns the ride into the city into a smooth and delightful affair and offers some wonderful panoramic views of this exciting metropolis.
Refreshed and inspired I’m looking forward to see you all in class this week.
Enjoying the aftermath of a little snow storm yesterday, Rolf and I took a walk on the toe path along the Lehigh River and canal this sunny Sunday morning in Bethlehem. We passed the old train station of Bethlehem (now a restaurant) and saw the old steel stacks ( turned historic industrial monument) at the south bank of the river. We’ll be back in spring again.
A Gift to all my sisters around the globe!
After springtime temperatures in the low 60s yesterday, this squirrel was probably as much surprised as we were this morning, when nature turned into Winter Wonderland again.
Looking forward to see all of you this week during classes.
I like to share some impressions from visiting our Kids and Grandchildren at Lake Toxaway in North Carolina. We spend a few days here without any schedule and enjoy the leisure, good food, nature’s beauty and playing with the kids, taking a hike and yes some yoga, too.
Finally – this morning we woke up to the long anticipated winter scenery and – the in this context necessary workout. About 4-6 inches snow covering the grounds were enough to deal with:)
I will admit, I stayed in bed, Rolf took care of documenting the beauty and creating a pathway into it…
To my yoga students,
Starting today I’m offering my yoga classes live and interactive from my new ZOOM studio in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. I’m truly happy and feel honored about your loyalty and promise you to do my best, to meet your expectations and to support you in your endeavor to create a healthy and balanced life.
