lokah samastah sukhino bhavantu

Yet again, I begin a blog post by telling you about a dream I had. It was a funny and weirdish one, but it's still interesting how even the funny/weirdish ones can propel you forward in helping you see certain things about life and yourself...

Trying to get it just so (now that I'm having fun adding pictures) - but something (someone) has been weighing heavy on my mind, then the news of the Boston Marathon bombings came, and I felt the need to hold from posting.

dandelions and bandhas

Our second weekend of training began today with an intense yogalates class that was packed wall-to-wall with yogis. You could barely fit one hand between each of our mats. Needless to say, you come to know your neighbor real fast. It was great! At one point, we were in bridge (setu bandhasana) and instructed to… Continue reading dandelions and bandhas
