Ride the Waves of Alignment

by Cyndi Lee Yoga provides an opportunity for us to practice whatever it is we want to develop in the other parts of our life when we are not “doing” yoga. Perhaps our aspiration is to cultivate more patience, curiosity, strength, flexibility, generosity, compassion or … a flat tummy and a firm butt. The truth […]

The Inner Work Of Weight Management

Like so many, I’ve spent most of my life battling the same 10 or 15 pounds, losing them with great pride only to gain the weight back again and berate myself for allowing it to happen. Recently, determined to make a change in the way I look and feel, I signed up for a fitness […]

The Book I Didn’t Want to Read

Lara Tupper, guest blogger “There’s a book I want you to read,” says my cousin Becky. She’s been saying this for months and I haven’t been listening—it’s 2009 and this particular book is everywhere. I pretend to enjoy dreary literary galleys instead, which I occasionally review for a clever literary magazine for about .0001 cent […]
