Removing Blame. . Even When It’s Really Hard

Hi Friends, I'm back in NYC for a while. At first I didn't know whether to unpack my bag, or leave it by the door as usual. I finally unpacked, did laundry and settled back into my NYC routine.

As a former weightlifter and survivor of two car accidents that caused injuries to my lower back, I’m not a very flexible person. Knowing this, I usually try to get to Strala at least…

Hi Friends, Handstands are a ton of fun. Some people find them scary at first, because, hey, you're upside down. That's pretty different than how we spend most of our time.
