As we all know, I'm a huge proponent of playing music during your practice. While most yogis gravitate towards more "traditional" music from the likes of Krishna Das, Deva Prema, and Jai-Jagdeesh, my speakers bump tunes from Van Morrison, Tom Petty, and George Michael....

It's a familiar story: you've uncovered your toddler's hidden treasure chest of booty, it's splendors nestled within the comfort of an air vent. Most times it is a shallow floor duct, making those handfuls of cheerios, Matchb...

Parenting is hard, y'all. Not only are we expected to keep these little creatures alive, healthy, and happy, but we also have to make sure they grow up to be responsible, respectful, contributing members of society. Parents throughout the ages have had their own specif...

Fungus. Bacteria. Viruses. All of these things can accumulate on our yoga mats.

Ah, summer: the time for sangria, suntans, and sundresses. And realizing the shorts that fit you last summer are now a teensy bit too tight. I don't know who invented bottoms with buttons and zippers, but if I had to wager a guess, I'd say it was Satan.

I absolutely love listening to music with lyrics when I practice - lyrics give me something to focus on rather than listening to my own brain chatter. I'm especially into covers...it's so fun to recognize an old favorite reimagined. And we can find a parallel between...

I was on a trail run the other day, chugging along, listening to the Hip Hop BBQ Pandora station (if you don't know, now you know), when a slender blonde sped past me, easily running double my pace. She punted me right out of my Biggie trance - I felt frustrated and c...
