Setting Intentions — It’s All About Alignment

It’s funny.  I remember drafting some first posts on this blog where alignment was an organizing force for my writing.  To stay focused, I used anatomy drawings I sketched during my yoga teacher training years ago.  I had actually never been able to draw anything in a literal way before that training.  Anything I createdContinue reading “Setting Intentions — It’s All About Alignment”

Leaving Meds Behind…

This is my first post since graduating. I’ll be doing more on the job front soon, but for now I wanted to re-invigorate HTK’s posts by creating one for a friend.

After exams this semester, my final semester, it made sense to take a couple of days for quiet in the woods. I shot this video as soon asContinue reading “Connecting to Nature In Times of Transition”

Peaceful Cuppa Coffee

Often called ‘the father of modern yoga,’ BKS Iyengar wrote that enjoyment comes through awareness of all of one’s senses. This quick guided meditation over a cuppa coffee will hopefully help you to experience what Iyengar was talking about.  In so doing, hopefully it will also bring you an experience of peace and quiet asContinue reading “Peaceful Cuppa Coffee”
