WHY YOGA

I fell in love with yoga at age 19 at UC Santa Cruz.  We practiced in their new hilltop recreation center with an ocean view.  It gave me a way to hold myself steady in difficult times, a pathway to stillness and strength.  Yoga has been a constant friend since then.  It's what I turn to when I am troubled, or sick, or out of energy, and the first place I go when I'm excited, feel powerful, and full of gratitude.  Yoga is the point of access to the best part of myself

YOU CAN SPEND AN HOUR ON A PARK BENCH WITH ANYONE, DEAD OR ALIVE, WHO IS IT? WHAT DO YOU TALK ABOUT

Maybe I’d like to chat with the the Dahlia Lama about how to cultivate compassion. Then again, maybe I’d like to just hang with my kids and talk about the latest Chris Pratt movie. Who knows?
