Vegan Boy

Posted By on May 11, 2011 in Blogs, O2 Vegan Blog |

I want to celebrate my son Dylan on his 10th birthday.  He has made 2 choices of late which are worth noting; one to cut his waist length hair and donate it (, and the other was to become vegan. He decided to go vegan while we were still on our RV trip. I will be honest, I didn’t think he would last especially while traveling. He became vegan based on some of his...

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 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

I don’t think they look like girls at all but it is...

Carrot Ginger Soup

I have always shied away from carrot soups because they seemed too thin or sweet or something. However, this recipe was inspired from a podcast I was listening to called Compassionate Cooks. Colleen Patrick Goudreau is an activist, cookbook writer, and all around cool person. Her podcast is called Vegetartian Food for Thought When I first became vegan, I really needed support. I needed to be...

Finding Inspiration

Posted By on Apr 13, 2011 in Blogs, O2 Yoga Blog |

I sometimes wonder how and when a spark of inspiration will occur for myself and others.  As a teacher, I am always hoping to be an impetus for change.  As a yogi, I know that unattachment is key.  As Desnikachar puts it, “Our normal course of action is first to decide on a goal and then, bearing it in mind, start working toward it.  But it can easily happen that our goal changes or even disappears… Paying more attention...
