In 2019, one of the books I loved listening to on Audible was Michelle Obama’s, “Becoming”. This post is an homage to that beautiful journey. It has been exactly a year since I posted to my blog. I have heard from a few people over email, checking in to see if I was okay. I […]

0

A friend of mine sent me a video this morning that said, “Yoga has lost its soul.” Full disclosure: I didn’t watch the whole thing. The reason?

I am at the Yoga studio. It’s been 2 weeks since I practiced yoga. Since the last month or so, I have been doing less yoga than I need or my body is used to. It should have been a warning. But I don’t think anything of it. Today it feels harder. I am surprised. […]
