Edamame Quinoa Salad

This is a great quick recipe for a summer party. People go crazy over it which is funny because it is super easy to make. Check it out and adjust whatever. Quinoa, Corn, and Edamame salad I made a salad for the teacher training recently that was a really big hit. This salad is so

Your Karma Ran Over My Dogma

Luna, The Dog That Started It All I thought it was appropriate to revisit our tag-line in light of the new website launch. Some of it might seem obvious. We do a lot of up-dogs and down-dogs in O2's unique style of yoga based on the Astanga system. There is also my clear

Finding Center

Ann in a steady headstand I have just completed another teacher training program. It is truly a humbling and gratifying experience to watch people transform into teachers seemingly before my eyes. Participating in teacher training is like one long yoga practice. There is stumbling, loss of breath, then steadiness returns. There are moments

Beginner’s Mind

Learning to do Handstands 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

The Luxury of Yoga

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

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

Shoulds and Shouldn’ts

Do you ever get caught up in what you should be doing when you actually want to be doing something else?  Or that feeling that you are not doing enough of a certain thing or of anything? Blogging definitely brings this out in me.   I am often feeling like I should be writing more.  I
