Snow day

"Yoga doesn't ask us to believe, it asks us to practice, examining our experience until we can witness the truth in the book of our own heart".

So, I'm on a Blog roll today! I'm snowed in with a sick, 7 year old boy at home. Have enjoyed quiet at home practice the past two days and simple domestic tasks like lots of laundy. I love how yoga reminds me to find beauty wherever I am. (ok, I did get thrown up on this morning, but I've moved on from that . . : ) The art of non-attachment is helpful, too.

Anyone in love with Costa Rica, yet? Stay tuned . . .


"Yoga Unveiled" Documentary Trailer

Yoga Unveiled is a video documentary of the yoga tradition. Early on, the observation is made that yoga is not intended to promote the teacher, but to support the student. This is a fitting and humble orientation-but of course one should not forget the teacher entirely. In this spirit, first-time videographer Gita Desai and her husband, Mukesh, have produced a unique testimony to the countless teachers who brought yoga from the remotest reaches of India to the main streets of America.

Beautiful film. Enjoy!

From David’s Ashtanga Journals: Physical and Mental Edge

This is a re-post from David Garrigues's blog. I attended a wonderful Ashtanga retreat at Breitenbush with him a few years ago. He articulates well here what practicing at our "Edge" means.
