Great balls of fire, it’s International Women’s Day! Give the ladies in your life some love. Progress, people. It’s what we all want. Sometimes it’s slower than we’d like, and sometimes it’s been festering there under the surface ready to go and all we really had to do was stand up straight, look it right in the stinkin’ eye and press the button.
It’s true, we can be our own worst obstacle. It happens. We’re grateful for those moments of clarity our yoga practice brings to us when will and empowerment stomp out fear and doubt like a stampede of hungry Ganeshas on a field trip to a peanut farm. But you can’t stop there, you have to keep going.
It’s like that 90’s dance song goes, “Now that we found love, what are we gonna dooo…with iiiit?”
Where are we going with this? In celebration of International Women’s Day we pressed the first button. We are super duper so incredibly excited and proud to announce a new addition to the webby family, a new site for and from the feminine. It’s called SaltedScarletry and it’s coming this spring. We hope it’s inspiring, but for heaven’s sake, we promise it’s not a site constructed solely of inspirational quotes. For more info click here.

New in Yogopinions: Family Life is the Yogic Cave by J. Brown. “Even if there were enough enlightened masters to go around, I just don’t see how we can ever really learn about the nature of life, and the role we play in it, if the goal is to somehow transcend or remove ourselves from that experience.”
