yoga for twoYoga for Two A teacher at the yoga studio where I teach put out a call for help: She had to work suddenly and needed coverage for her class. Because she had covered for me several times before, and I had other people covering my class for me for the next two weeks, I felt compelled to answer her call.

yoga dogYoga Dog – The Yoga of Living with a Big, Naughty Dog I love our dog Shay, who arrived at our front door a little over a year ago with a look on his face that clearly communicated, “You are my people.” At the same time, this dog drives me crazy.
