Beginner’s Mind

Posted By on Jul 6, 2011 in O2 Yoga Blog |

Do we ever stop learning new things? Or maybe the question should be: should we stop learning? September seems to be the unofficial learning month and it will be here before you know it. Most of us went back to school in September when we were kids and young adults. As some of you know, my kids are home-schooled (well actually, they are un-schooled but that is a whole other post), but it still feels like something new is supposed to...

How often do we ask ourselves this question? When I first started teaching yoga, I wasn’t “ready”.  In fact, I was kind of thrown into it because the teacher kept not showing up. When I contemplated opening my first yoga studio, I definitely wasn’t ready. I remember debating this with myself and realizing that the question wasn’t; was I ready? The question was; did I have something to share with others...

The True Meaning of Vinyasa I ran a workshop this weekend to correspond with the monthly intensive.  This one was on the true definition of vinyasa. We got to talking about the meaning of yoga and why we do it. We talked about the breath and the locks, and the asanas and how they make us feel. We talked about the importance of centering, clearing the mind etc. It was a great workshop and I came away inspired by the students there but...

Hair today, Gone tomorrow

Today is the tenth birthday of my oldest son Dylan. I want to celebrate the birth of this very cool, unique individual. Our family homeschools which means we spend a lot of time together. Still, it goes by quick. I remember the day of his birth as it was yesterday. He has had long hair for as long as I can remember. Both he and my son Deven often get misidentified as girls. I don’t think they look like girls at all but it is...
