How are you? Really?

People ask us how we are all the time. Do you notice what you answer? Often it’s a quick, auto-reply: “OK”, or “fine.” But it’s also equally an answer like this: “Aw man, my car didn’t start and I think I need to spend a lot of money to get it fixed.” “I’ve been busy

Of muses and remembering

My writing self has been M.I.A. of late. I don’t want to say a writing block. It has been more like a pause. Like something has been waiting and needing to brew. I’m feeling more loose now and things and ideas are starting to flow. Ideas are more cohesive. It’s been interesting to observe needing

How many sun salutations should I do this morning? How many is enough? What am I hoping the effect will be? Enough sun salutes to reverse the rotation of the earth on its axis? Turn back time? To when? To what? How many prostrations should I perform this day? As I go up and down

There is no winning in yoga

I’m a competitive person. Yes I’m a yogini. I teach yoga. I own a studio. I teach people to teach yoga. And yet I’m competitive and struggle against needing to win ALL THE TIME! Since I was a little girl I’ve had a drive to win. My mother even toppled a game board  (Trouble) shouting

Free LGBTQ Rainbow Yoga Flow at Spiral July 16!

Our hearts have been hurting. Our anger has been brewing. News accounts of the massacre in Orlando targeting the LGBTQ community left many dazed, numb. Follow that up with more police killings of black men and then the killings of police. We rally. We shout. We push for legislation. We push for changes in systems.

Yoga should FIT YOU, not be FITNESS

I’m going to try yoga but don’t expect me to be good at it. I’m not going to be able to do a lot of stuff. I can’t do what you do.   This is often the introductory phrase of a lot of yoga students. It’s apologetic before trying. It’s so much pressure to fit

Sexual trauma, teens and transformation
