Freedom Sale Across All Videos, On-Line Training & Early Bird

Hi Friends, We just returned home from introducing Daisy to her farm family in Illinois. She enjoyed soaking up all the wide open space, country life, and family love. We are lucky to have both of her great grandmas around and spunky, along with loads of uncles, aunts and cousins galore. Now we're happy to be home in NYC, looking forward to getting back in the studio here, and moving with ease with the locals before heading to Europe this Fall. The 4th of July has me reflecting on freedom. What we practice with stråla is essentially the practice of…
The World You Want Isn’t Far Away

The World You Want Isn’t Far Away

What kind of world do we live in? It might have something to do with what you see.   People are doing so many crazy amazing uplifting inspiring wonderful things - for all of us, to help all of us - in every moment of every day.   But it might always feel like this. Sometimes it feels like there's so much wrong, holding us down, hurting everything everywhere. It's important, what we see. If we only see what we think isn't right, things become more difficult. And it's important that we not look too far away. So begin where…
Why We Learn

Why We Learn

This isn't for becoming better at poses. It's time for taking really good care of yourself, and becoming better at you. It doesn't matter how simple or complicated your yoga is, or anyone else's, or what anyone else thinks. I wouldn't worry about this one ever. What's important is giving yourself you-time, within a hugely supportive learning environment that will help lift you up when you need it. Remember the other people around you aren't here for comparison. In these training courses above everything, the group is here as a team, to lift each other, and to help us each learn…
Perfection, Pain, and Becoming a Yoga Teacher

Perfection, Pain, and Becoming a Yoga Teacher

Sharing this super-inspiring story from a friend in Rome Three years ago I was a CPA in Italy. I was one of the youngest girls in the country to work with listed companies (I got my bar at 28), working crazy hours, commuting 2,5 hours a day, and studying for my bar. I had a practice in meditation for 7 years but I wanted to do some exercise too, so I started searching videos on YouTube, zumba, fit box, dance, you name it. I would do them each about 5 times and then quit. Until one day I found Tara's video, I think it…
Something We Can All Get Behind

Something We Can All Get Behind

Everybody told Tara never to publish our Strala training manual. The business types with the spreadsheets and powerpoints all said this was nuts. If you give it all away, how will this work for you??   It works when the work is to create a better place for us all to be. Because this can't help but be for all of us.   It begins inside. When we find harmony inside, suddenly we are more together in our individuality than we ever could be through struggling and pushing to conform. Tara and I have talked about this one a lot.…
Creating the Work You Want

Creating the Work You Want

How can I create the work I want, and is it ok to take time off? This question comes up a whole lot, and probably the first best answer is, you know your own best answer. Because what's best for you is unique to you. From here, I can share a little of my own experience, and maybe make a few guesses about yours. As a start, I wouldn't worry too much about taking time off from work. I know this scares people sometimes. We even worry about things like "holes" in our resumes. But we also know that living…
