It’s always interesting for me to watch how people pay for their yoga classes and retreats. Some people pay waaaaay in advance, and in full. Some, late, every time. I used to think that it reflected how they value their yoga, and maybe it does. But it also seems to be a measure of [...]
Interrupting all regularly scheduled programming, here is a totally frivolous post about pretty things on the inter webs. Things I love, and want, on account of how I am easily influenced by the internet, and especially Pinterest… Knitted yoga balls? Well, why the hell not.

I’m starting to dread that question: everyone knows that I am on sabbatical from my regular teaching schedule so I can get my book done. Thing is, it has a will (and apparently a timeline) of its own. For one, it keeps changing shape on me, to the point where the 10,000 or so words [...]

Maybe it’s your weight, or your eating, or your work, or your consistent poor choices in relationships. Well, you don’t HAVE to feel like a [...]
Years ago, when I was an Ashtangi, and people asked me what my spiritual practice was, and I answered that my asana (physical posture) practice was my spiritual practice.
