The other day, I was having a conversation with a group of students – all wonderful, empowered women. I really admired their honesty when they told me that – almost to a one – they’d not started making any real provision for their retirement yet. One half joked that she was hoping some kind relative [...]
Today’s yoga sequence comes to you from my friend Lucilla Hammond. Her studios, both the one she teaches from and her home studio (I know, how lucky is she!) are playgrounds of cushy support for rolling around on the floor. We are in agreement that there is great value to be had in rolling around [...]

I usually schedule my posts about a week in advance, but this, this needs to be talked about. Kausthub Desikachar, son of TKV Desikachar, whom I quoted in just this morning’s blog post, has been accused of sexual and emotional abuse. Go read the article over at Yoga Dork. I want to say this: people [...]
