I’m soothed by having ‘a place for everything and everything in its place’.  I like to count things; ..read more

Dear Yoga Teachers, You don't have to know everything.  Don't be afraid to say, 'I don't know'.  Teaching is a collaborative process.  You will continue to learn with every student you encounter.  That is the great adventure of teaching. When I was a new teacher, I felt such pressure to know everything about....everything! - Students would ask me about why their kne..read more
