Thank YOU

In my hospital job, it is customary for my manager Nora to print out letters of appreciation that we occasionally receive from our patients. In honor of that tradition, and as yoga teachers we know it is even less frequent, I am posting a recent email I received from a student. To all the yoga [...]

Publishers Clearing House

Last week I taught a chair yoga class at Publishers Clearing House in Chelsea as part of their corporate wellness day. Dues to space (and time) limitations we ended up doing two 30-minute sessions.

Take 10

I like mornings - our energy and brains are clear and the day spans before us, however, I have never been a “morning” person. Once up, there are the daily list of things to do and the race to leave the house. If I wake up late, I am rushed and frantic and settle down [...]
