Namaste folks. My journey with yoga and meditation has been a long one. I first did asana practice with my mother in the 1970’s, but this external practice did nothing to answer the deeper questions I was beginning to ask. Soon I was fortunate enough to meet someone who could, and to learn the process of meditation from him. Since that time, despite a tendency to get distracted, and stop and start, meditation has remained my central interest. Later in life I trained to formally teach asana classes, with a focus on alignment and teaching beginners. While I do not conduct asana classes as regularly these days, I do spend time mentoring teacher trainees, and find myself being drawn more into passing on the jewels of yoga philosophy and meditation. Hence these blogs!
