Peace Love and Misunderstanding

  When we think of Woodstock, we think of ’60s counterculture festivals and a free-spirited vibe.

Arm and Arm

They say follow your bliss but I say follow your pain. Because I’m starting to notice that when I follow my pain, then my bliss follows me. This happened recently with my arm pain. The pain had become so bad that at the end of class, sitting in final cross-legged position, instead of [...]

To See Or Not to See

Not being an actress, model or wannabe of any kind, I don’t think my eye pillow would mind if I tell you it is old. Fortunately, its dark purple color camouflages nine years of eyeliner residue. (Yes, I’m one of those girls who wears makeup to Yoga). And nine years, is by the way, like [...]

My Other Car Is A Yoga Mat: The Mistress Cleanse

One day I walked into class and noticed that since I had seen my teacher last, like two days ago, he’d changed. Good-bye robust athletic yogi, hello rock star. Not the junkie kind either.

My Other Car Is A Yoga mat: State Of The Union

The other day Greg and I were stuck in some mood-ruining slow-and-go traffic. Instead of picking a fight we picked a mantra (sacred syllable) and started chanting. Somewhere between the opening om and the closing swaha, the air cleared and we were in it together again. And that’s when I remembered the billboard. [...]
