The Award Goes to …

There are 5 stages of a celebrity’s career. Who is ____? Get me ____! Get me a ____ type! Get me a young ____! Who is ____? I’ve been eating kale for years.  Decades.

Yoga is Everywhere

In 1995 I first travelled to Mysore, India to study Ashtanga Yoga with Sri K Pattabhi Jois in his small yoga school at the back of his modest home. 12 students fit in the classroom at a time, with mats overlapping one onto the next. The room was heated by the efforts of 12 students […]

Yoga in the Mainstream

It never occurred to me that I could be anything other than unconventional, progressive, curious and experimental.

Better Than A Flu Shot

Smoothies Make You Fat – Ayurveda 101

I don’t care how healthy you believe your smoothie is. How many expensive, organic super foods you’ve lovingly blended with nut milks, global dried berries, hand-foraged seeds, grass fed whey products, heirloom oils and green lake-sourced powders.

Don’t Live a Disposable Life

In 2005 my guy and I left hectic Los Angeles for a simpler life in a sweet house near Hilo, Hawaii. Our new life was a blessing and, I believe, the blessing of our yoga teacher Sri K. Pattabhi Jois who assured us, “Don’t worry soon you will have a house.” And through a sequence […]
