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 would do them each about 5 times and then quit. Until one day I found Tara's video, I think it…
Responsive Movement and Miracles

Responsive Movement and Miracles

Your body works miracles for you all the time.  Occasionally it needs your help. Mostly this help comes when we slow down, tune in, and support our bodies to do what they do best.  It's not so much fixing or correcting or manipulating that we need - from ourselves or anyone else.  Sometimes the help we need is simply in opening the conversation with our bodies, and forming a positive connection that allows us to respond in some simple ways. Remember that much more than what moves or poses you do to target this or that problem area, it's using your breath…
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.…
