Summer (Yoga) Poetry Project: Fire/Space

Summer (Yoga) Poetry Project: Fire/Space

This week’s episode of the Summer (Yoga) Poetry Project is inspired by the kind practice you do when you don’t know what else in the world to do with yourself. This is usually a good time to sit down. Much love and thanks for reading, Erin 2. Fire/Space when you finally do concede the seat of your rage you might discover an astonishing tenderness

How I Came to Know Faith

Okay, so here we go, my first blog post since giving birth.  I was advised- “blog about being pregnant, about your changing practice or your insights etc”.  All I can say is that it didn’t feel right, I couldn’t do it.  For someone like me, who usually doesn’t hesitate to share my experiences, ideas or processes, this came as a surprise.  Being pregnant was

THE BEST THING

You Minus Sugar: The First Three Days

Okay, to lay out some basic details: the first three days of the detox program I’ll be following are the most stringent. It’s basically protein (in the form of chicken, fish, turkey, red meat, tofu, tempeh, beans, nuts and seeds) vegetables (minus a few high-sugar veggies like beets, carrots, summer squash, sweet potatoes–thankfully, these come back into the mix very soon), and fats (olive

The power to feel good is within you!

You Minus Sugar = Super You

Sugar. Oh, honey honey. You build up in my system so innocently at first, enticing me with your promises of late-afternoon energy and lasting satisfaction. I buy it for a while. I think, “what’s with all this gluten-free obsession? (Because, y’know, grains = glucose) As long as I stay active, sleep enough and eat well most of the time, all this anti-grain, anti-sugar brouhaha

How to Develop a Home Yoga Practice:

This title was almost: “How Pregnancy Helped Me to Find My Home Practice”; but then it occurred to me that in fact we all struggle to create a practice for ourselves.  We all can have a difficult time finding the inspiration and enthusiasm that is so contagious and energizing in a group class.

October blog: Dealing With Demons

Dealing With Demons

  It’s that time. Halloween, Dia de los Muertos, the burning of Zozobra and El Kukui…the time of year during which we make room for the demons and monsters and creepy-crawly aspects of life in ways that become, y’know, fun.  Because normally? Normally, we reserve phrases like “facing your demons” to describe life’s most harrowing, challenging, not-sure-I’ll-survive-this experiences. Kind of the opposite of fun.
