Spring Clean Your Excuses! Make space for what really matters.

Excuses.  Everybody makes them.  As a Yoga teacher and wellness professional, I hear excuses all the time.  Sometimes people find out I teach Yoga and immediately give me their excuses for not trying Yoga.  And then they tell me about how they prefer Pilates, or they are not flexible, or that they hate getting quiet.  …

Contemplating India 2017

I use the word “process” a lot lately.  I use it as both a noun and a verb.  I talk a lot, especially in my Yoga classes, about “the process” or “it’s a process” to communicate that most things are not an “endpoint” but a series of steps.  These “steps” could be anything—thoughts, discussions, activities, …
