The Wisdom That Comes With Age

As we come off the holiday high and dive into a New Year, I’d like to share a few thoughts  that help keep life in perspective.   (Edited from Baz Luhrmann – Everybody’s Free)

  • Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth; in 20 years you’ll look back at photos of yourself and recall in a way you can’t grasp now how much possibility lay before you and how fabulous you really looked….You’re not as fat as you imagine.  
  • Don’t worry about the future; The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind; the kind that blindside you at 4pm on some idle Tuesday.   
  •  Enjoy your body, use it every way you candon’t be afraid of it, or what other people think of it, it’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever own..
  • Do one thing everyday that scares you.   
  • Sing – Floss – Stretch – Travel. 
  • Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts, don’t put up with people who are reckless with yours.
  • Don’t waste your time on jealousy; sometimes you’re ahead, sometimes you’re behind…the race is long, and in the end, it’s only with yourself.  
  • Remember the compliments you receive, forget the insults; if you succeed in doing this, tell me how.
  •  Keep your old love letters, throw away your old bank statements.
  • Be kind to your knees, you’ll miss them when they’re gone.  
  • Do NOT read beauty magazines, they will only make you feel ugly.
  • Get to know your parents, you never know when they’ll be gone for good.  
  • Be nice to your siblings; they are the best link to your past and the people most likely to stick with you in the future.
  • Understand that friends come and go, but for a precious few you should hold on. Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and lifestyle because the older you get, the more you need the people you knew when you were young.   
  • Respect your elders.  
  • Don’t expect anyone else to support you. Maybe you have a trust fund, maybe you have a wealthy spouse; but you never know when either one might run out.
  • Don’t feel guilty if you don’t know what you want to do with your life…the most interesting people I know didn’t know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives, some of the most interesting 40 year olds I know still don’t.
  • Maybe you’ll marry, maybe you won’t, maybe you’ll have children, maybe you won’t, maybe you’ll divorce at 40, maybe you’ll dance the funky chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary…what ever you do, don’t congratulate yourself too much or berate yourself either – your choices are half chance, so are everybody else’s.   ~Namaste~ Stacy

Beyond Age

Doga Yoga World Record


Even though my dogs passed away last year, I’m not adopting 250 dogs, but trying to help break the Guinness Book of World Records for Doga Yoga. Along with Leash Your Fitness and the Humane Society, we are teaching a huge class for all Dogis and Yogis. Come help us set the world record for the LARGEST dog yoga class!  250 dogs are NEEDED to set the record!  No yoga experience is necessary, just a love of nature and an open mind.

We are so excited to break this record and we want to PROVE to the country that 250 dogs can be in one place, working out and it be a peaceful experience!  There is going to be a lot of video, photos and media there!!

A few things to make this class run smoothly.  There are a lot of rules that must be followed to “officially break” the record and one is that we have to have 250 dogs.  In order to have that many dogs in one place without any trouble


·         No dog treats or food (very distracting)
·         NO retractable leashes (very dangerous)
·         No aggressive dogs or puppies (for obvious reasons)
·         One dog per person (Guinness Rules)

Remember that this is a YOGA CLASS & we want to be CALM

·         Once on the field, NO TALKING (we want you to focus on your dog)
·         NO socializing the dogs. (it isn’t play time plus we don’t want any dog fights)
·         To help calm your dog, gentle massage behind the ears helps


COST: Suggested donation $10. 100% of donations go directly to the San Diego Humane Society.

Class location: Carmel Valley Rec Center,
3777 Townsgate Drive, San Diego CA 92130
