Getting More Out of Your Yoga

Yoga can be easy and soft and at the same time challenging and intense, and that's fantastic. We want a practice that we can progress with, grow into, and continue with every stage of our life. What we don't want is to bring more tension and stress into our practice than we need. There are ways to collect more stress while going through your yoga that end up frustrating and no fun.

6 Tips for Handstands and Everything Else

6 Tips for Handstands and Everything Else

  Whatever it is you're doing, make sure it's playful and fun for you. Don't push hard to get past the tough spots. Instead, just move gently around them.   With hand-standing, this means 1) Don't rush headlong to be upside down! Where you are right now is a good place to be.

Everything We’ve Ever Been Told About Achieving is Wrong

I've learned something incredibly valuable over the last several years, and it goes against everything I've been taught about achieving in my life. It's been a revolution for me, allowing me to achieve more and actually enjoy the process of working toward my goals, without stress, tension, struggle and defeat.
