Hope you all stay warm and dry this weekend, and remember to stretch! As we move into the winter months, our bodies tend to tighten up. Even if you have no time for class, which is always... read on

    I am a spiller. I was pronounced a spiller many moons ago. A Shabbat moon, in fact, when I was just 4 years old in our apartment in Chicago. I was desperate each Friday night to place the kiddish cup on the table. Each week, my parents, or at least my mom, gave in to my plea, and... read on

    There is a Sanskrit word I like very much. Drsti. Pronounced DRISTI. It means vision. This word is often used during asana, posture, practice to remind students where to place their eyes. Each posture has a complementary focal point, for instance, in downward dog, one is to look at... read on

    If you’re like me, you like lists. To do lists, grocery, recipe lists… They make me feel organized. And sometimes, reveal just how disorganized I really am, as I often FORGET the darn list at home when it is time to forge ahead into the DOING part.
