Recently, my husband C and I were asked to help out at a PCA event at Grattan Raceway. Instead of taking the racecar, trailer and swag, we decided to keep it simple by driving up in the Cayman. The day was overcast and it rained on and off throughout the event, which helped keep things cooler and mo ...

The altar where we placed meaningful objects for the OTM community to honor on our last yoga practice together.
Imagine a place with no cellular service, no wifi (ok, really terrible wifi that’s not really worth using – so close) and where someone peering into their phone is a rare sight.

Most people hate Mondays, but hump day is the day I dread. Each Wednesday, per our custody agreement, my daughters go to their dad’s house for the second half of the week. In principle, I don’t disagree with the schedule we have in place; I firmly believe spending time with their father and sist ...

Every time I visit Chicago, I wish I could stay there. Within the first hour or so after I first visited as a high school senior, I knew I wanted to move to this midwestern city. I wasn’t even lured by the lovely brightness of August in the city, either – it was January, it was cold, and it was ...

Mother Everyone.

When I was a kid, I was bookish, loved classical music and ballet, and took life very, very seriously. My mother was funny, undisciplined, and marching to her own drum. While other mothers pushed piano lessons and extracurricular activities, my mother let me pick and quit activities whenever I wante ...

What we do when we're not practicing yoga: visit magical places like the Po Lin Monastery outside of Hong Kong.
About eight hours after a sleepless 15.5-hour airplane ride, I found myself on a mat next to about 30 beautiful people at Pure Yoga HK. No one forced me there – it seemed like a good idea at the time. “It’ll be great!” I convinced my kind husband, who by now is used to my overly-enthusiastic ...
