The other day Linda, someone who’s been practicing at my studio for as long as I’ve been in business, announced she’s going to do the April Yoga Challenge this year. For the first time. (This will be the 12th year I’ve offered it.) “Why now?” I asked her. She didn’t give me an answer. I … Continue reading Why Would I Do Such A Thing?

Somebody at yoga tonight said that the … Continue reading The Yoga Challenge and the New Year’s Eve Letter
