Today before starting the hatha class at noon in NY City I asked if anyone had remembered the storm of 1996. I did and yesterday subbed at the same place I was teaching that day in 1996, HB Acting School in NY. I remembered that day because I got a phone call, as NY City lay covered in much more snow than it does after last night’s “storm”. There were people cross country skiing on the streets in NY that Monday in 1996. I received a call that my great Aunt Nancy, aged 101, had died the night before. The blanket of snow seemed appropriate to tuck her in to the hereafter. Little did I know that 18 months later I would purchase the house she had cherished and turn it into a yoga retreat to keep its history and legacy alive, and to keep it in the family, When I mentioned to the class that a teacher at HB yesterday asked if I remembered the storm of 49 I said No, I was born in 55! After class a lovely young woman came up and said ” Are you really 58? I want to look like you at 58!” Keep doing yoga, folks, take care of yourself and your thoughts..get enough rest, be authentic and be with the right people!
That is my advice today:)
It all helps! Enjoy the snow…..

Donna Amrita Davidge has been teaching yoga full time for nearly 30 years in many and varied venues and populations.
Holiday Retreat was FUN with lots of snow shoeing this winter!
More info coming on San Francisco March 7, Pleasant Hill March 9 and 10 and Golden Bridge LA March 12 Evening time..here is the wonderful solstice night we were a part of in NYC DEC 21- Kent played guitar and drums, I led the Kundalini Yoga set on Creativity and Amar Atma played Harmonium while Gianroop led the group through an amazing meditation!
This morning I was mulling over the books for the business. not at all my forte but a necessary things when tax time is nigh, and not achieving what I had hoped to with Quickbooks. I had gone to my early Ashtanga practice that I had been away from during the winter retreat ,which was good, but the day was not falling into place as I would have liked. I felt frustrated and inefficient. The phone rang and it was a student from NY who now lived in London. I had taught her in the early 90′s in Tribeca. A 45 minute conversation ensued about healers vs therapists and the energy of last solstice. I feel grateful that students turn to me and trust me when they are facing deep internal questions about themselves, their direction, their choices, their lives. At 11 the phone rang into the conversation. I assumed it was my 11 phone appointment to work on a workshop on creativity we are doing in California in March. I rambled on to the person calling about the connection between the London call and her, a 6 degree of separation mutual friend in London, only to realize it was not the person I thought I was speaking to! It was one of my teacher trainers who had switched careers from law to freelancing photography, law and yoga teaching wanting to share with me a profound and interesting experience she had New Years Eve, which included a Kundalini Yoga celebration in NYC. All in all, the morning turned into a series of Goddess conversations as finally the SFO healer called to talk about our planned workshop. Quickbooks forgotten for the time being, we went off to a screening of the Silver Lining film ( I have kept my SAG card though not acted in 18 years) with a talk with Bradley Cooper and Robert DeNiro ( a perfect movie for knowing we all have issues and off days! loved it in fact) before I ran off to sub a vinyasa class. I am home, tired and fulfilled from another spontaneous day in my yoga world.
