YD Goes to Yoga School

Happy 2011! We made it! Read this yogadork’s tale of victory over 108 New Year’s Day Sun Salutations. Full post featured at YogaCityNYC: Why do 108 Sun Salutations on January 1st, the day after one of the biggest celebratory nights of the year? The challenge! Yes, of course! If you can last through 108 rounds [...]


Here we are, December already! My, have these past few months flown by, like bakasana on Red Bull! Or a “lit” Rudolph? This post is brought to you by the colors RED and GREEN, and by the pose of the Camel. Lately our trainee group has been getting down to the nuts and bolts of teaching yoga.

Oh my, is it November? Where has the time gone? Back an hour! I know that much. Have you all been playing nice? Yoga Teacher Training has taken me through the winds of fall into what feels like the descent into a cold, dark December. Are you with me when I plead, ‘Dear Hatha gods, [...]

Sweet mother of pearl, we had the weekend off! So why is my frontal lobe on the fritz? Oh, of course, it is the common condition known [...]


And the beat goes on! It’s the third straight and full weekend in a row of teacher training action – which, mind you, is different from movement. More on that later. It’s been a whirlwind trip on YD express lately so it felt fantastic to go back to basics for this week’s YTT theme “teaching [...]
