Stop Doing Yoga Like a Man

Before I say anything, I want to preface this with the fact that I love both yoga and men. All kinds of each actually. ;) So, this email isn’t to knock yoga or men, but after teaching yoga for 17 years, I’ve noticed something that I can’t be quiet about anymore. We need to stop doing yoga like men. Here’s the thing....

Can I be direct with you?

I’m going to be direct with you tonight. I've been thinking a ton about my mom lately because we are coming up on the twelfth anniversary of her passing. She died of breast cancer at only 56 years old. About a year before she passed away, she was going to be starting chemo and knew that meant losing her hair. I went...

Creating Space

Are you longing to slow down, to feel less overwhelmed, to find calm amidst the chaos? Have you been moving incredibly fast, hustling, driving around all day, trying to keep up with the pace of everyone else, striving to be the perfect wife, mom, and co-worker (or at least to create the illusion of being perfect)? Are you working as hard...

Thank you.

Thank you. Thank you for the gifts, all of them—the messy, the beautiful, and especially the hard. Thank you to my children who wake up each morning eager to play, to laugh, and to face the world. You remind me to not give up. I am because you are. Thank you to my sisters who sit with me in my darkest moments, who...

We weren’t meant to live like this.

I just got back from a women's spiritual retreat in Massachusettes. I stayed on my friend's land, where I woke up to this incredible view. She has a home surrounded by trees, and forest, and a small lake with a whispering river. The top of the lake was just starting to crystallize with ice. The air was cold and fresh...

She Let Go

Today is my mom's birthday. She would have been 67-years-old. She's been gone now for almost 11 years, but time is not linear. This is the story of her 50th birthday, and the first time I truly saw my mother. This is the story of a woman finally letting go of everything that ever held her back. This moment lives...

I disappointed her. Then this happened…

As we move into September and the end of the summer, my body remembers last Fall, and a hard decision I had to make regarding The Practice. Probably one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever had to make. I had 60 women lined up ready to start their next 10-week program with me. These included women who had never done The...

Do you give and give until there is nothing left?

We martyr ourselves when we give and give until there is nothing left. My son started junior high school today, and as I left him at the curb and watched him disappear into a sea of kids he didn’t know, I couldn’t help but cry a little bit. I thought of my own mother, and how she’s not here to see...
