Sophie and Laurence and I warmed up with a white tea before class, then ventured Read More

Teaching yoga from the heart

Every day I wake up thinking about yoga.  It has been like this for as long as I can remember.  It is my deepest passion, my guiding light, the shining star in my sky.   Yoga teachers are bound to one fundamental rule:  you can only teach what you know.  And knowing yoga is about doing Read More

Good morning dear yogis, or yogis-to-be! Wouldn’t you like to make 2018 the year that you take up yoga?  Yoga is so ubiquitous now, it seems almost silly not to at least try?

The mysterious path of the yogi.

The funny thing about yoga is that almost everyone confuses it with exercise. And while it has been said many times before by scholars much abler than I, yoga does incorporate body postures and breathing, it is really not a form of exercise. Most yoga teachers know this.
