Shiva Takes a Stand (On You)!

As a professional yoga teacher, sometimes it’s easy to forget how strange some of the Hindu statues on display around yoga studios can appear to people unfamiliar with them.

A Magic Mantra for Thanksgiving

A Magic Mantra for Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving and family tension go together like turkey and cranberries–a barely tolerable experience that often leaves a dry and bitter taste in your mouth.

I Can Read Your Body

I can’t read minds. But after 15 years of teaching yoga I have learned how to read bodies.

A Practice to Develop Your Inner-Wisdom

There is a part of you that just knows. Call it intuition. Call it your gut feeling. Call it your inner-guru.

First, that’s dumb, and second, if there were “Pilates people” and “yoga people,” I would certainly consider myself both. Sure, I make a career of teaching yoga and practice […]
