Namaste can be confusing to the newer yogi, understandably! It can even be confusing to the seasoned yogi. The new yogis are often times hesitant or downright puzzled when I put my hands to heart center and bow to them in Namaste. Maybe I will hear a whisper as the student wonders what it means [...]

Living life with no explanation

    “Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself”. Harvey Fierstein   I often find myself explaining the choices that I have made for my family and me; from the food I choose to eat to the way I plan [...]
