Everyone, even airport managers, recognizes the stress flying generates these days. In their quest to improve the customer experience, some of them have opened dedicated yoga rooms. Instead of striking the warrior pose in the waiting area amidst staring travelers, you now have a quiet space to center yourself.

Two weekends ago, I took part in a women’s retreat at a beautiful farm in rural Connecticut. And I did something unusual—I turned off my cell phone. Instead of glancing at my phone, I soaked in the landscape, embraced time meditating, and laughed with soulful women around me. I took a step away from tech, and I couldn’t have been happier.

Meditation is my therapy. I’ve had a consistent meditation practice for the past three years and explored various styles of meditation for years prior to that.

My yoga practice is a life practice. Yoga, to me, is both a practice and the culmination of a practice.

I live yoga in my kitchen, my relationships, and my everyday life. The medium may change, but the process remains constant.

Spring Yoga

The season of new beginnings is upon us. With the arrival of spring, we shift from the hibernation of the winter months to an awakening of rebirth. Spring invites us to open back up, delight in warmer days and cultivate a spirit of aliveness.

As sunlight paves longer days, warm, damp spells have the potential to leave congestion and upper respiratory conditions in their wake. Spring is the time for releasing deep-seated emotions of sorrow and sadness. Support your body through this transition with the following recipe for balance as we embrace this upcoming season.
