here comes the sun!

here comes the sun!

by Zefea Samson

Every year, with the arrival of the Spring season, I play a special game with the children in my kids yoga class.

And it’s their favorite thing!

We talk about the birth of life and what nourishment is needed for plants and living creatures to grow. Water! Food! Oxygen! Soil! Each child gets to contribute an answer.

I also add that a lot of patience is required for growth.

From there ...

Under the Tuscan Sun

Under the Tuscan Sun

Imagine doing Half Moon pose under the Italian sun while gazing out to rolling hills, far removed from the hustle and bustle of a big city, and then heading back for a delicious meal made from fresh local produce.

Imagine doing Dancer pose while looking out to the romantic canals of Venice, the city alive with celebration and charm, before heading out with fellow yogis to explore the local history. ​

the heart of yoga is stillness

the heart of yoga is stillness

At the heart of yoga is a doorway for how to connect and experience the truth of who we are in both a relationship to ourSelves and to others.

And that doorway is stillness.

Whether in savasana using little effort or handstand using all your strength and willpower, yoga calls us to find the still, quiet point in every posture. It teaches us how to remain centered while in action so we can stay ...

What’s Your Yoga Story?

Alana Whitt | Hot TT Graduate | Costa Rica 2016
