Yoga is so much more than studio lighting & rubber mats,
temperature regulation and tight sexy pants!
yoga is wild
and there are so many ways to do it.
as the hybrids are prolific and multiplying
It's all skillful means to reach the masses
Yet one size doesn't fit all &

It seems appropriate that my first blog post is written while on pilgrimage in India. Now, having left all that was familiar in America, I sincerely feel fearless in my desire to express my joy freely to those who might seek to commune with me while I am on this journey, as well inspire those who would like to do something like this to join me.
