https://vimeo.com/290627599 Welcome back to SciFi & The Sutras! In the back half of the season I'm focusing in on the details of the 8 Limb Path. This week we talk about the Yamas and Niyamas, or as I like to call it, the training montage bits. Let's explore a little more about the foundations of … Continue reading SciFi & The Sutras: Episode 6
https://vimeo.com/282598890 You knew it was going to happen - I'm going FULL STAR TREK!!! This week I focus in on this whole concept of the soul - what is it, how do we define it, and what does it mean in the context of yoga? Presented with apologies to Wesley and Wil Wheaton 🙂
https://vimeo.com/280128656 Whether it's called fate, or prophecy, or a calling, or just being The Chosen One, this whole "Destiny" thing shows up in SciFi and fantasy A LOT. If I'd included all the instances of there being a prophecy, or the phrase "just as it was foretold" or the whole Chosen One trope in the … Continue reading SciFi & The Sutras: Episode Four
https://vimeo.com/278004867 It's here! Episode Three is all about zombies. If I had included all the interesting information I learned about zombies, zombie film history, and the intersection of public fears and what zombies represent in cinema, this episode would have been an hour long. As it stands, I wanted to share some extra links with … Continue reading Scifi & the Sutras: Episode Three

A week ago, I closed my latest show. It will also likely be my last. After almost a decade of professional stage management, I'm stepping away. It's not out of anger or resentment. It's because I felt it was time to practice exactly what it is I teach. In creating The Average Yogi, I wanted to … Continue reading The Great Leap Forward
A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a pretty vulnerable piece based on what was happening n my life. It was raw, and necessary, and I am so thankful for the outpouring of support that I received in its wake. Seriously, thank you. In the wake of that, life returns to a version of normal. I'm … Continue reading What Now?
I've been meaning to write up a new blog post for a while. Yesterday morning I threw something together about my recent trip to Las Vegas. It was cute, and a little funny, and maybe I'll post it someday. The thing is, life intervened. Last night my upstairs neighbor passed away.

I've recently come to a realization: I'm average. I'm a size medium, an 8 1/2 in the shoe department, average height, average weight, and when it comes to my yoga practice? Well... I've been practicing yoga for six years now, and teaching for almost two. In that time my practice has evolved, but it's also … Continue reading Confessions of an Average Yogi
