How To Start A Daily Yoga Practice

A question I am asked as a yoga teacher is how many days a week do I practice yoga.  Answer: every day.  But the next question should be what is a yoga practice?  What it should not be is a source of stress or guilt.  Rather, a daily practice should be whatever you have time for, considering what you need each day physically, mentally and spiritually.

Gratitude For Year One Anniversary of My Yoga Studio

A Year of GratitudeThis week, BFYH starts its second year in business.  What did the first year bring? Not to keep you waiting, I will skip to the thesis statement;  Yoga brings out the best in people. Forget the physical aspects.

Set An Intention For The New Year

If you have ever built or remodeled a house or know someone who has, you know how difficult the decision process can be. Its not unusual to become wishy-washy, second guess the second guesses, or transcend into the “I don’t care anymore” arena. While walking through my friends beautiful newly built home yesterday, I found her streamlined approach to decision making remarkably simple but thoughtful- “ALL SQUARES”. Recognizing early …

Healing from a Concussion with Yoga Therapy

(This first person perspective on using yoga therapy to heal a concussion was written in July 2010 while 6-20 days post-concussion. The timing of the concussion was incredibly serendipitous; six days later I was scheduled to attend an 11 day Yoga of the Heart training with Nischala Joy Devi at Kripalu Yoga Center. The program is designed for cardiac and cancer therapy, but it was a remarkable recovery option …
