I Got an A in Yoga. But I Cheated.

Something to crow about

Today I taught crow pose (bakasana) in my morning class. One of my students had a major breakthrough as she balanced for the first time. Beaming, she kept trying it again. In fact, it was hard for her to stop when we started moving onto the next pose....more

I recently began practicing yoga again. My twice a week class is the first time since my son was born that I’ve had any sort of "extracurricular" activities away from home. Moments later, while lying in Shavasana, I realized why it was so easy for me to get back into yoga. It was because I had never stopped practicing at all. I’ve spent the past four years learning to control and soften my breath at the risk of waking a sleeping baby with even a deep exhale....more
