We believe the depth that arises in teaching comes from inquiry an ...

April is Cesarean Awareness month, and since roughly one third of American Babies are born this way I thought this episode was incredibly important to re-release!

Much of a yoga practice can, from the outside, look like very little is happening. In a meditation practice it might look like we are just sitting there, but as we all know, that “just sitting there” can be a wild experience and a potent place to make friends with ourselves. Pausing in an asana practice to rest in Child’s Pose can look like a lull …

You may have heard it’s easier to repair a straight and even cut as opposed to a jagged tear from vaginal births.
