learn to sitLearn to Sit Most of us spend the majority of our waking hours sitting—at our computers, in our cars, at our dining tables, in front of the television.

redefine beautyRedefine Beauty in the Moment As I pulled my chest forward in upward facing dog, and right before I arched my back, I caught the view out the window of the yoga studio:  a field of rushing blond grasses against the fast-moving blue-gray clouds of the storm to come, and behind the earth and sky, cars darting quickly down a busy road, beige professional buildings scattered throughout the scene.
