You can only lose what you cling to.

Note: one of our homework assignments for yoga teacher training was to write a short (five sentence!) dharma talk inspired by one of the yamas or niyamas in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. Decided it couldn’t hurt to share it here as well–it’s as nice of a reminder on a Monday morning as it is […]

Of the moment // 5.16.14

I feel super lucky that I had not one but TWO girls nights this week! I’m incredibly grateful to have such amazing friends in New York City: finding a solid friend group is one of the hardest things about moving to a new city. In a funny stroke of luck, almost all of my friends […]
