Diane Kovanda explores the joys and benefits of Mermaid Yoga

Mermaid Yoga: Making Waves on Cape Cod

by Diane Kovanda

"You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment"
                  Henry David Thoreau

To practice Yoga authentically is to be fully present and mindful of the moment, moving skillfully with the flow of life. Danielle Veseskis and Hannah Vigliano are sharing their love of yoga by taking it into the water.

They are creating an aquatic body/mind fitness program and making healthy waves on Cape Cod.

The two young and innovative yoga teachers are putting a gentle and graceful spin on yoga by teaching the practice to their students immersed a warm salt water swimming pool.

The Department of Meditation, Etc.

Department of Meditation

Never Vanilla

by Constance Wilkinson

We're changing Cape Women Online seasons once again, and the Department of Meditation, Etc., was feeling decidedly antsy about what to write in this here summertime column. DoM,E felt that she had begun repeating herself, and was hesitant to repeat the drumbeat:

Looky here, O readers, meditation is a habit that brings benefit, assuming you actually do it and don't just read columns about it, and here are all these respectable scientific studies that say so, don't take their word for it, don't take my word for it, why don't you just try making it your own habit for a bit and see what happens, meditation costs nothing, you don't even have to leave the house, you don't need to own a zafu (a kind of special meditation cushion), you don't need to wear special clothes (something loose? Something in a silky special puce?), you don't need to sign up for a special program (ouch! $$?), you don't need to tell anyone you're doing it (no, really, I am!), you can do just five minutes in the privacy of your own wherever, just five minutes, five, everyone has five minutes, do they not?"

Yadda yadda; blah di dah, blah di dah, et cetera. Because, well, you know, I've already said that, have I not?

So, DoM,E sought assistance, gentle readers, and received it, courtesy of the kindness of a particular gentle reader who had a burning question about meditation.

Living Whole: Caterpillars and Butterflies

by Maggie French

Maggie French

"It has been said that something as small as the flutter of a butterfly's wing can ultimately cause a typhoon halfway around the world."

I came across an image of a Monarch butterfly with its wings spread open on a white flower, the proverbial representation of transformation and inspiration; a symbol of change, of freedom, of the Self reborn.

Middle Eastern Dance: A Blissful Path to Healing

by Khadija

Repressed joy, repressed sadness, repressed wildness. As women, we can identify with all of these feelings and still not know quite how to move them into our conscious awareness and give them a voice, a place in our own lives.

These denied emotions keep us from being present in our lives, until we are initiated into the oldest dance known to humanity.

The dance began in Ancient Egypt and is an integral part of Egyptian culture to this day. When surrounded and supported by a safe circle of sisters in dance, a woman begins to give birth to her fullest self.
