with Kelly Fisher and Roselyn Vanderpool

Kintsugi is the Japanese technique of taking something broken and transforming it into a work of art. Broken things are restored with resin and gold paint so as to highlight and honor the imperfections. Kali is the goddess of destruction who breaks things down in order to reorganize and create something new. Do some yoga, break something, and remake it in your own special way.

Chant!

The Gayatri Mantra is one of the oldest mantras of which we are aware. It honors the sun and all the life-giving energy, heat, and light the sun offers. "Gayatri" refers to the meter of the verse .  It means 24.  After the initial call to earth, sky, and heavens, the next three lines are of eight beats each, equalling 24.  Hear the chant and learn the words here.

The odds are stacked against […]

This week in class we’ve been learning the story of Virabhadra — the ferocious and terrifying warrior that arose out of Shiva’s anguish at the loss of his beloved Sati. Virabhadra is the namesake for all those Warrior Poses we do in class, Virabhadrasana I, II, III, the Humble Warrior, and more. Briefly, Shiva and […]
