Life Isn’t an Either-Or Proposition

“Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure… than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.” ~Teddy Roosevelt As I was training with the kettlebell this morning, I […]

Qualities of a Yoga Teacher – Thirty Day Personal Challenge Day 2

Quality #2:  Open I believe good yoga teachers are open in many ways.  Open physically, of course, because they strive in their own practice to achieve deeper levels of understanding of each pose.  Practice naturally makes their bodies more open, but yoga teachers are also open-minded, open-hearted and open-eyed.
