I had an email from a reader called Chris the other day. He was wondering what the bounds of an appropriate teacher-student relationship might be. He’s also given me permission to publish our conversation: I am new to yoga, but does one have to be spiritually inclined to be a yogi? I am an atheist, [...]

I’m not sure how coherent this article is, but it’s very interesting stuff! Adrenal fatigue can cause joint issues. Yeah, I know. Apparently, it’s often the fault of the sartorius muscle: Pop over to my mm…Yoga! blog to read more. And to find out what adrenal fatigue is, if you don’t know.
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 [...]
Excitement! We (the Bali yoga retreaters and I) are off to Ubud this week, to do yoga and get massages and delve into the Light Up Your Life material. Oh, and eat really good food. I confess to feeling a little smarmy about all this. Who wouldn’t be excited about getting to do their job [...]
I should put up decorations, it’s so festive around here. Two Christmas Specials in two weeks! Dang! Actually, speaking of decorations, how awesome are these? I see a lot of them in my immediate, idiot-crafting, future. Apparently, they are called Himmeli. And there’s a full tutorial here. I like me a good craft tutorial [...]

Now, it’s a not-quite-so-little [...]
Ladies and gentlemen (although, according to the survey, you blokes are severely in the minority). This happens to m all the time. I decide things are going to be a certain way… And then they aren’t. It’s very irritating.More about that in a moment, but first: you remember when the lovely team at lululemon Bourke [...]
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 [...]
Suzy Taylor and I think the same way. That’s why we often work together. She believes in sovereignty too. As, IMHO (okay, maybe not so humble) all good teachers should. Also, she’s funny. I like that. Read on to find out EXACTLY what she thinks: A yoga practice is an individual thing. It is about you [...]
