What Are You Waiting For?

  Are you waiting for it to be over? Or waiting for it to begin?   Don't wait. Get into it. Right where you are, wherever you are, you can get into everything there is.   This works in yoga. Sure we've all seen it. Low lunge, time to check the toe nails! Down dog, when does the interesting stuff begin? Well, it's right here. Anywhere you are, in any pose, you can feel into everything you have. Just relax, explore, and feel in every direction, from right where you are. It doesn't begin when you get to the next…

Moving Beyond Posing: How To Make Yoga Work

  "Hoping for a future where people stop trying to do yoga poses & start reconnecting with their whole selves." Tara recently shared this on Facebook. It makes sense to a lot of people, this idea of getting into all of you - not just a few poses - by feeling. No worry about other people's rules, no rigid ideas about "correct" ways to do things. Just using your yoga to practice what you want in your life. Although, Tara's writing did confuse a few people. Stop doing poses? You're telling us to stop doing yoga?? How come you do…

Getting Rid of What Squashes You

Hi Friends, I hope you are about to settle into a great weekend of winding down summer and settling into your fall. I recently handed in a project I've been working on for a while, and finishing up a few tail ends on other things and getting myself organized and settled so the rest of the year can unfold with ease. I took a bit of time to clean out a bunch of things in our house that needed to be done that had been literally piling up month after month. I went through it all, sorted and packaged everything…

Want To Stand On Your Hands? 3 Secrets Will Get You There

  So you want to stand on your hands? Ok here's the secret. It has three parts.   1) Drop the pose goals, and get into your body.   Rolling around in cat-cows, relaxing, and getting every inch of your body to move - just by moving your hips - will be more valuable to you than years of jumping up and down trying to stick the pose.   2) Stop trying to get your feet to go from the ground to the sky.   It's easy to focus on the extremities, your hands and feet. They cover the greatest…

Spicy Almond Creamed Curry

A Spicy yummy upgrade to peanut sauce has been on mind for a while now, hanging out on the back burner somewhere. Overdue for a lunch break I was scrolling through Pinterest at yummy things to eat. After catching a glimpse at a peanut sauce dish I remembered my vision and zoomed over to the kitchen to play. Now in all honesty, I play in the kitchen a lot. Sometime recipes turn out super yummy and sometimes they flop. I use all fresh, super good ingredients so it's rarely something is completely inedible, unless it's burned to a crisp granola,…

How To Unbalance The Stress Equation In Your Favor

  Do you want to heal? Look at how stress moves in your body and life. If stress is going into your body and making a home in you, your body will play defense like a pro, but will have a tough time healing. Find a way to reverse that direction. Stress will come. Find a way to keep it moving on out, and let your body shift from defense to healing. Your body is a pro here, too. It will even tell you what it needs. You just have to listen. Tara and I get to see how people…
