Posted July 23, 2016
by Rian Bodner I recently overheard a yoga teacher telling a student that if they kept practicing, some day they would be able to touch their toes. As far as I am aware there is no crystal ball gazing as part of a yoga teacher training. Let me assure you that there is no benefit […]

The Long Version

Posted June 09, 2016
by Lisa Hollister “Authenticity”.  It’s another round robin at teacher training, and this time we are supposed to say one word that explains what brought us here.  I go first and start right in with my story but Jean, who is here to teach us about restorative yoga reels me in, saying “Relax your body.

Posted June 02, 2016

To Sadhana. Or Not to Sadhana.

Posted May 27, 2016
by Eileen Pilla Aside from maybe a 3-second fantasy while admiring someone sinewy in a crazy arm balancing pose with a beautiful ass, I never considered committing to any yoga teacher training.

The Journey I Am On

Posted May 19, 2016
by Cathi Carino Growing up, I always sought out approval from the authority figures in my life. I felt as if my performance was to gain their acceptance and if I did not meet their criteria, I was a failure. I remember when I first started my practice, the teacher was talking about how worthy […]

Honesty and Clarity

Posted May 10, 2016
by Sarabeth Harrelson People are drawn to yoga for a variety of reasons.
