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…

War, What Is It Good For?

  Have you ever tried to force someone you know to be more flexible? Have you ever tried to force yourself to be more flexible? It doesn't work so well, does it? This holds the same whether you walk into a meeting and try to force everyone to go your way, or you go to war with your tight muscles. Force is typically met with equally forceful resistance. No matter how strong you are, there is always something that will push back. You might win occasionally, likely by accident. More often, you'll break something, in your relating with other people,…
The Most Important Thing You Can Do

The Most Important Thing You Can Do

Hi Friends, I've been reminded lately in more ways than a few that the most important thing we can do is take care of our selves. I'm coming off some travel to Korea, Japan, Miami and now back home for a while, which has made me realize the importance of self care. I'm lucky, I practice a lot of easy going yoga and eat well so I am rarely sick. I don't really get jet lagged and I can't remember the last time I had a cold or the flu. I didn't always have the grounding self care in my…

I Can’t Do Yoga, I’m Embarrassed, It’s Weird!

  Tara and I like to go for walks. We meet lots of people on the street, and lots of times they tell us they can't go to yoga. You've probably heard the reasons. At first, it's often a simple "Oh I'm not flexible" or "I can't do all that stuff." Talk a little longer, lots of people say "I'm embarrassed." And a little longer, "Yoga's kind of weird!" Tara and I often respond a little differently. For Tara, it's pretty simple. Suddenly I hear her say   "You're Perfect! It's Fun!!"   Everyone is smiling. Yoga is suddenly on…
