Actually feeling true, heart-swelling, gut-wrenching gratitude on Thanksgiving seems a faaar cry from what actually happens on this holiday, something which could oftentimes be best described as emotional dodgeball. But it […]

A Mindful Response to Las the Vegas Shooting

I was rocked by the news of the shootings in Las Vegas over the weekend. I was shaken, dismayed, confused, and worried. I have close family who live in Vegas and fortunately for them, they were nowhere near the shooting. In the face of such horror, it’s easy for anyone to become reactive with fear, […]

The Idiot Override Button

I practice and teach yoga. Through trial and error I’ve learned a few things about the body and how it relates to the nervous system, particularly how to get more by doing less.

I Can Read Your Body

I can’t read minds. But after 15 years of teaching yoga I have learned how to read bodies. Thanks to the body/mind connection, often I don’t need to read your minds because your body is telling me everything I need to know.

Sacred Space

Sacred Space

Sometimes I’ll come home after a long day and close the door behind me and just stand there. In the dark. Enjoying the quiet. I’ll breathe for a few minutes and let my nervous system settle.
