Bringing Yoga Philosophy to Everyday Life

Hello lovelies!  Here's Collection #2 of our Managing Roadblocks to Well-being.  The over-arching theme for this set is Tuning Into Ourselves.

During the moments I was working on this piece, I listened to classical music - The Four Seasons, Brandenburg Concertos, Cannon in D... you get the idea.  My point is, for this work, classical music helped me tune into myself.

I invite you to cultivate your own rituals to help you tune into you - nothing complicated, just things you enjoy!

...and I hope you enjoy reading this collection!

My rights and lefts are even more muddled up than usual, going upside-down is unpleasant and turning my head to scan a roomful of people is making my head swim.

I needed to rest, but physically I was still fine and strong (ok, apart from everything I said above) but I had a new vinyasa flow and I was excited to teach it! Needless to say, I still did all my classes since the previous Sunday (end of March). But I made mistakes; multiple times in practi...

Like all yoga teachers, I’ve been asked numerous times what type of yoga I teach. A few months ago, one of my yoga tribe asked me specifically what “dosha vinyasa yoga” means and how is it different from all the other types of yoga out there.  The simple answer is: balance and being in that quiet space between. My “style” helps the modern yogi prevent and manage injuries, whether that's yoga related or not, by helping establish a practice that is accessible, comprehensive and balanced through my curated Dosha Vinyasa Yoga©.
