I was seeing a chiropractor on a regular basis, mostly from back issues. My job was extremely stressful and I was overweight. Every few sessions, my chiropractor would recommend I try yoga. “Yoga is not for me”, I said “that not “real” exercise”.

The holiday season is generally thought of as a time of joy and love, but for many people, it’s a time of loneliness. Many live far from family and miss seeing their loved ones this time of year; others dread going to holiday parties and New Year’s Eve celebrations without a partner and end up staying home; it’s also common for people to feel emotional distance from the people they’re with, thus feeling lonely even if they’re in a room full of people. For those who feel lonely during the…Continue

“You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.” ~Kahlil Gibran
Have you ever wondered why it feels good to give and help others out or if there are actual measurable benefits for the giver as well as the receiver? Do we lose true altruism if all parties benefit?

"Save the Earth" has almost become a cliche' these days and I am saddened by this. All too often when something becomes so well known it ends up being tossed to the "Useless Info" department that resides in the human brain.

Could I really guide other people toward inner balance when I felt so unsettled? I would be teaching the exact thing I needed to learn most, but maybe this was the only way to truly learn it.
A twenty-six year old struggling actor/writer, I had traveled alone from New York City to India to complete a month-long yoga teacher…
