When Will I be Ready?


Posted By on Jul 12, 2012 in O2 Yoga Blog | 0 comments

I hear that question often from students regarding when they will be ready to move out of Basics and try other levels.  My answer is this: The Basics classes are designed for a couple things. 1. For students new to O2 to learn the foundation of our practice. 2. For students who have been coming for a while to come back to the foundation and work on alignment and strength building. If You Are New To O2 I suggest that anyone new to the...

Why so Particular?


Posted By on Jun 16, 2012 in O2 Yoga Blog | 1 comment

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.

I now understand why you sometimes see an opening soon sign hanging for...

We are heading to a conference in North Carolina called ARGH. Yes, like the pirates. It stands for autodidactic radical gathering of homeschoolers. Intrigued?

How do I benefit from getting people to take the vegan challenge??? I don’t. So why the hell do it? Because I think that it makes someone’s lot better. Am I hoping to change people’s minds about what it means to be vegan? Damn right, at least in the sense that I really believe in making someone’s life better through this process.
