This is my former home studio; a converted living room of an apartment on Mariposa Ave. where I lived for 14 years. It was a palatial, Spanish style, 1 bedroom apartment in the urban sprawl of East Los Angeles just north of Korea Town and west of Silver Lake. It was a special place that served me long and well. It was my sanctuary. My butterfly sanctuary, if you will. At the beginning of my teaching career and for the last two years of my residence here, I taught group classes in this sacred space. It was a true joy to live and conduct yoga within these four walls with alcoves set off by archways and Corinthian columns, original hardwood floors, majestically high and ornately detailed ceilings with crown moldings, a faux finished mantled fireplace with a relief cherub detail and French windows that opened onto the palm tree dotted cityscape. It gave me energy. I thrived here!
