When you make yourself present to the moment you are in, the challenge, although might still be there, is suddenly much less daunting. Fear slips away in that very instant and you can absolutely conquer the mountain. One foot in front of the other, one precious present moment at a time, you will quickly find yourself at the top.

There are good days and bad days. Big days and little days. And it's not always easy to "stay the course" as my father always said.

I am overwhelmed with gratitude because as I begin this journey into motherhood, into becoming a goddess of giving and devotion to others, my yoga practice nurtures me.

Of course, the skills you learn in teacher training will help you get started as a yoga teacher, but they can also enhance your current professional skill set allowing you to meet with long-term career success and satisfaction.

There is a lot of "yoga" happening in the world today that has very little to do with what yoga really is. Several myths about this ancient practice have long been masquerading as facts. It is time we demystify yoga.

From the design of the facilities and choices for in-house props to the all-important standards for teachers, Manila is presenting a more grown-up version of the yoga scene than I've seen anywhere else.

Yoga is in! It should come as no surprise that the demand for yoga teacher training has grown exponentially in recent years. While the Road to Enlightenment is paved with good intentions, it can also be potholed with some sobering realities.

Using the physical body as the main component of a spiritual practice is newly popular and barely existed just a few decades ago. Prior to that, asana was viewed as a single limb on a larger tree, mostly used as a way to get the body ready to sit in meditation for a long time without distraction.

People are coming to yoga class to get to a better place somehow, and they've chosen your class because they think you might help do that. They want you to succeed. They aren't coming to class to critique you.

Anyone today who is actively trying to become a Yogalebrity may as well try to become the next Tom Cruise or Julia Roberts. (Ironically, many of them have.) The wave has come and gone. The Yoga Bubble is bursting.

Yoga teachers can go a long way toward taking care of their students by avoiding triggering traumatic responses in those students have traumatic injuries. And you should, as part of responsible, ethical teaching practice.

Yoga Teachers will sink or swim together. The sooner we figure out a sustainable win-win business model regarding how to freely share the benefits of this rich tradition, the sooner we will all prosper. Ommmmmmmmmmm.

When I started doing yoga, I loved most of what happened in the classes. One thing I did not love, though, was the chanting of "om." None of my early teachers could explain what it meant or why we were doing it.
