Yoga for Healing

Belinda Baer, has been teaching yoga since 2001 when she received her Yoga Teacher Certification from the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health. She also completed the Ayurvedic Yoga Specialist 500 hour training at the Kripalu Center. She uses yoga to facilitate growth and healing in her own life and is dedicated to facilitating growth and healing in her students’ lives.

Yoga is more than just posture or Asana practice. Patanjali instructs us on the 8 limbs of yoga. All of these limbs are necessary for the personal and spiritual growth that we are searching for in our lives.

Yoga is a practice, which means that no one is perfect at it, but the process of exploring the body and mind is the key to growth.

Come join me on a journey of self study and re-awakening.

Private and semi-private lessons are ideal for individuals who don’t have the time to attend a scheduled yoga class and for individuals who may feel intimidated by a large group class. Classes can be in your home or in the private Wise Woman Ayurveda Studio.

The New Rule

It's the old rule that drunks have to argue
and get into fights.
The lover is just as bad. he falls into a hole.
But down in that hole he finds something shining,
worth more than any amount of money or power.

Last night the moon came dropping its clothes in the street.
I took it as a sign to start singing,
falling up into the bowl of sky.
The bowl breaks. Everywhere is falling everywhere.
Nothing else to do.

Here's the new rule: break the wineglass,
and fall toward the glassblower's breath.


Inside this new love, die.
Your way begins on the other side.
Become the sky.
Take an axe to the prison wall.
Walk out like someone suddenly born into color.
Do it now.
You’re covered with thick cloud.
Slide out the side. Die,
and be quiet. Quietness is the surest sign
that you've died.
Your old life was a frantic running
from silence.
The speechless full moon
comes out now.

"I used to want buyers for my words.
Now I wish someone would buy me away from words.”

I've made a lot of charmingly profound images,
scenes with Abraham, and Abraham's father, Azar,
who was also famous for icons.

I'm so tired of what I've been doing.

Then one image without form came,
and I quit.

Look for someone else to tend the shop.
I'm out of the image-making business.

Finally I know the freedom
of madness.

A random image arrives. I scream,
"Get out!" It disintegrates.

Only love.
Only the holder the flag fits into,
and wind. No flag.
