Musicians answer the yoga call in Lansing

This yoga is awe-inspiring. What started as a potentially negative thing has turned into a musical movement, a community-building spark, an innovation motivation. Since writing last week that we would no longer play popular music because ASCAP wants us to pay licensing fees, we’ve been contacted by quite a few musicians and supporters. Yoga connects

Fundraiser yoga class to help yoga teachers skydive for sex abuse survivors

Yesterday I taught my first yoga class for teen survivors of childhood sexual trauma through the Free Being Yoga Network.

The deep freeze as a practice

As I was posting on Facebook that the studio would be closed again today I was reflecting on patience and surrendering to what is. These past few weeks have pitted man versus nature. We know nature will always win, but man often refuses to tap out on the mat. As though that’s a sign of
