  • Yoga, Self-Compassion, and Accepting the Inner Critic

    It’s the quality of our minds that we bring to our yoga practice that is the difference between suffering and freedom, says Kripalu Yoga teacher David Schouela.

  • Into the Heart of the Rose

    A rose is a rose is a rose (so wrote Gertrude Stein). But a rose, in the hands of Boston-based artist Lori Schouela, becomes a symbol of unity and harmony, an unexpected artistic medium, and an up-close look at the intricacy of nature.
