India: A sense of being off-center but being in the center of it all

Today INDIA hit me for the first time.  It’s been four months since I ventured with a group of like-minded individuals to visit not only India but the lineage of this yoga I have been teaching for the last 14 years.  This lineage of yoga has helped me discover who I am and today INDIA […]

Coming Back to Center in Your Practice

When there is pain or discomfort in your back, when you stray mentally or emotionally in your yoga practice, it is a perfect time to come back to your center – literally.  Coming back to center in your practice both metaphorically and physically can help us find stability on and off our mat.  When we move from […]
