January Sucks

Not sure if it’s just me, but this whole “New Year, new me” thing is kinda eh. To be honest, I was one of those people excited about a new year, setting new goals, changing it up — but I got far more change than I had wanted. I launched into 2017 with a cold, [MORE]

We shine

In the last few days I have been reflecting on my path and journey with yoga. I’ve been able to experience some really cool things, traveled for retreats, learned how other communities grow, and taught my passion to those in different cities. When I go deeper into these thoughts, I am reminded how much community [MORE]

Why I yoga

When I was 18 years old and living in San Diego, the concept of yoga was 100% new to me. I lived with a roommate who had been a very avid Ashtanga yoga practitioner. She invited me to go to a class and I said no the first couple of times. It wasn’t until after [MORE]

No time for bull$hit

The first time I ever taught a class, I was a fucking wreck beforehand: I was anxious, insecure, and my mind raced.  When I actually taught it, my body was shaking, my voice was trembling, and I could hardly breathe. Fast forward to today (right now, actually) and those same anxious feelings are bubbling up [MORE]

Taking care of YOU

This last week I had a ton on my plate. I had more classes to teach than normal and had to work on wrapping up a few different projects. Finally, the weekend came and I was able to take off to go visit my friends and family for some much-needed R&R. It was a super [MORE]

It’s okay to not be okay

I’ve always been a high energy kinda guy and when I’m at all a little on the lower side people’s first thing is to ask if something is wrong. Most of the time, it’s just me being introspective or genuinely low energy. But there are other times where I’m not okay. My mind might be [MORE]

We go deep

I’m yet again in another two weeks of an advanced training with my teacher (Hi Jason!). Let me first say, I truly love doing these trainings. However, sometimes they can be very daunting. For two weeks, I meet from Monday through Saturday for about eight hours and learn, learn, learn. The difference between this and [MORE]

No one cares about your handstand

It’s easy to get caught up in the physical practice of yoga. With so much pressure coming from social media, sometimes it seems like yoga is just about doing crazy postures. The truth is that yoga is a living system. It’s about treating yourself and others well. It’s about learning compassion. It teaches us that [MORE]
