Last weekend, I participated in a three-day Ayurveda immersion at Yoga Vida. I will admit – at first, I was skeptical. And I really only signed up for the course because it counts towards the next step in my yoga teacher training (accumulation of 300 hours in addition to the 200 I earned during the […]Read more "Ayurvedic Dinacharya (Morning Routine)"
I am one week in to my yoga teacher training at Yoga Vida. We learned philosophy (which I loved) and anatomy (which may be the reason I fail this class).

We started with a class on anatomy. I am not a doctor and can’t even begin to pretend that […]Read more "Yogi Day Camp at Yoga Vida"
