Some people believe that props are for people who can’t do the poses as they are meant to be. I feel sorry for those people, they’re missing out on using these tools that can help you get the most out of your practice.
Today I’d like to share with you today three poses that I do that help me sleep, and that I consider self-care poses. We’ll explore three poses that encourage a good night's sleep, including how to use props to get the most out of your practice.
It is about 6:30 am EST here, and it’s the beginning of the New Year. So for some of us we created some resolutions, right? We decided that we’re going to make some changes in 2016, and we do this every year and most of the times it doesn’t work out.
Sometimes, when you’re doing a vinyasa sequence, boobs and belly can get in the way. Especially if you’re in a bigger, or curvy body. Modifications are often the answer to what frustrates us in our yoga practice. Here’s a simple modified Sun Salutation without cobra pose that will really help.
One of the topics I love to talk about is yoga and social justice. I am pretty fired up after coming back from Race and Yoga Conference at University of California, Berkeley.

My hubby and I did a morning yoga practice and I thought we might share it with you.
I woke up this morning inspired. I had an incredible 2014. I am so grateful for this year. It came on the heels of a disappointing 2013. I had a lot of things happen in 2013 that I was grateful to leave behind. As challenging as 2013 was, I was grateful for the lessons learned. I was thankful for the opportunities to grow and for the new friendships I created, as well as the friends that moved on to find themselves in a different energy. The things that were holding me back fell away.
Someone recently emailed me to ask, “Am I just too fat for wide legged forward fold?" No! Yoga is for all of us, especially us curvy yogis. Today's tutorial video makes Prasarita Paddottasana accessible for all.
In this webcast I revisit another interview from the archives. This interview was the start of a whole new way of of teaching for me. Let me introduce you to Dr. Gail Parker. She is a Yoga Educator, Teacher, Psychologist and Creator of the Center for Conscious Living.
