How Tai Chi Can Improve Your Yoga

How Tai Chi Can Improve Your Yoga

When we introduced tai chi as a practice in our 300+Hour Advanced Leadership Training last July, it had an unexpected result. We wanted to give everyone a new way of practicing the same set of principles for releasing stress, healing what needs healing, and moving with grace and harmony in our bodies and minds - even when things get challenging. Which was wonderful to share. What we didn't expect was how helpful it was for all of us, to see ourselves again.   In a way, so many of us have spent so much time with yoga, that really we're…
Create Not Copy. How to make hard work feel good

Create Not Copy. How to make hard work feel good

This question just came up with our online training group - something about the intertwining of fun and progress, whether it's really possible to have both.  So my thought is, maybe this is possible.  Which is good news, because we all want more.  This need to expand and grow is part of being human.  When it goes in the right direction, it's how we make things better, for all of us. But what if this progress feels so much like school, or work, all heavy?  Maybe then it's not so possible.  And maybe it's not even progress.   As a start, if…
Is It Possible to Share Too Much?

Is It Possible to Share Too Much?

Why do we share? Whether it's in school or training, online or in person, how do we know when it's the right time just to listen? And when is sharing good for someone else? When is it good for you?  A couple thoughts come to mind, which might have something to do with unweighting.  It's possible we could be just a little less responsible, for everything.   1) Take care of you first.

Create the Community You’re Looking For

A few years ago I had a talk with Joe Cross - the guy who created Fat Sick and Nearly Dead, and shares all around the world now about getting back to health. We were waiting to speak at MindBodyGreen's annual Revitalize conference in Arizona, and I was going up after him. I knew a bit of Joe's story, how he cured himself with juice and got off all the bad stuff. But we were getting behind-the-scenes, and there was something new here.   Doing the right thing doesn't always stick.   And he got to see this everywhere. Over and…
