Disaster Turns to Adventure

Last Thursday, Steven, Dylan, Deven, and I went into Boston to meet up with Brooksie, the owner of Totally Sweet, a vegan baked goods company. It was a beautiful morning so we parked the car and walked for a while before we got to the cafe. When we got back we looked for our car

So a Yoga Teacher and a BoatBuilder Walk into Inspectional Services…

Sounds like the beginning of a bad joke doesn't it? Well, our odyssey through the maze of Cambridge bureaucracy started back in September of 2011 and here we are, finally, with a building permit almost a year later. Now don't get me wrong, we have had, with a few exceptions, an incredibly wonderful experience with

Zombies and Yoga

Just did my first practice on board our boat on our trip to Maine. We are rafted up(that's sailing lingo for tied together) with two other boats, our friends Kate, Justin, and Parish, and Garth and Maya. We have known each other for years. The kids have grown up together. So here I am practicing

It Doesn’t Have to Be Perfect

Ah, words to live by. My friend Kelly said them to me last night as I was freaking out over test recipes in my kitchen. I was trying out some new recipes which mostly failed. I understand on an intellectual level that everything takes time and "practice and all is coming" as Shri K Patabhi

Dreaming

I had a dream last night that left me very unsettled. It was one of those dreams that I couldn't remember. I only remembered the feeling of being lost and sad. And then it hit me, it was about I was me but wasn't, I was someone else. All day, I have  been thinking about

When Will I be Ready?

Why so Particular?

We, at O2 Yoga, are known for being pretty particular about certain things like alignment of feet, knees, wrists and shoulders, use of breath, and specific set up and entrance to postures.

Patience is a Virtue I Do Not Have

Now before I go too far, I need to say that I love the city of Cambridge and can't wait to join the community. That said, we have had quite an education going through this process. It has definitely been a lesson in patience; not a virtue of mine. We have run into many roadblocks,

Pratyahara

I have spent the past two days traveling on a refurbished school bus with my sons, Dylan and Deven, our friends the Halldorsons (Facebook.com/the unschoolbus), making a total of 3 adults, 4 kids, and 3 dogs. We are heading to a conference in North Carolina called ARGH. Yes, like the pirates. It stands for autodidactic
