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 […]

Posted May 10, 2016
by Sarabeth Harrelson People are drawn to yoga for a variety of reasons. I started taking classes on the advice of my doctor because I love running and needed to find a way to strengthen my upper leg muscles to compensate for knee pain.

Learning

Posted April 01, 2016
by A.D. I’m a skeptic. I came to yoga as a self-punishing marathon runner who needed to stretch the muscles I hammered across five boroughs of asphalt and concrete.
