2014. Wow. Such a futuristic sounding year. I wonder where our jetpacks are. I hope this new year is already fruitful for you. Make it so by doing what's important and meaningful. My personal goal is to have clear intention behind my actions without attachment to the outcome. Good luck with that, Mia. It's challenging, rewarding work and I'm inspired to do this by my daily reading of the Bhagavad Gita (in Sanskrit...!). Read about more tips on how to thrive in winter here, written by my yoga teacher & friend, Jim Kulockoskifrom Darshan Center. My favorite tip is to "Spend time examining your self. Winter is naturally a time to go inward. Use this time to plan for the coming year." Join me in doing this by joining yourself. Happy Winter!
Every year, I donate money to Heifer International for the holidays in lieu of buying gifts. New stuff is nice, for sure, but buying a sustainable resource that feeds families in someone's honor is more rewarding than bottle of booze, don'tcha think?
I hope this free five minute deep relaxation recording relaxes you. Yoga nidra means yogic sleep. Rest deeply to optimally function.
Private Yoga Sessions I offer private yoga instruction to individuals and groups. Yoga is much more than physical poses. Our private yoga session includes techniques that meet you where you are to create internal and external balance.
Yoga Videos YogaInternational.com is quickly becomingthe online resource for yoga practices that share more subtle aspects. I'm honored to be on it.

Watch out - you'll get hooked. A list of my videos is here.

The Householders are like nothing you've ever heard. Initially, they sound like an upbeat, electronic dance outfit with fun beats and catchy hooks. But, you may find yourself listening to them repeatedly because of what's in their music. Beyond smart lyrics, their music is grounded in devotion. Have a listen. I manage this band and most of them live at my ashram, Himalayan Institute.I love love love them. I hope you will, too. I'm touring with them across the Midwest in June! More info to come.
