Yoga has taught me patience, but I still don’t much like the waiting game. I am all too human sometimes. I get attached to things working out how I… [read more]

Yogi Assignment: Gratitude

Gratitude is the silver lining in every tragedy. It’s one thing to say that when the sun is shining and you stand on top of a mountain of achievement. It’s another when you stand in a pile of debris at the pit of emotional distress. While I’m not down in the darkness now, I know… [read more]

Yogi Assignment: Ingenuity

I’m sitting on a train to Charlottesville, not because I chose to book the train but because when I tried to check into my flight last night, it had been changed to five hours earlier. My new flight was scheduled to depart at the same time that my last workshop in Philadelphia was ending—that wasn’t… [read more]
