local yoga teacherSupport Your Local Yoga Teacher I feel fortunate—really fortunate. Decades ago, I got to study with yoga luminaries such as Donna Farhi, Judith Hanson Lasater, Elise Miller, Angela Farmer, Aadil Palkhivala, the late Mary Dunn and many others at a time when 20 students was the average size for a workshop.

posted by Charlotte Bell on September 24, 2013 |

When you made progress, the evidence was absolute, even if you’d only beaten your last personal best by a tenth of a second or a half inch. After high school, the sports I engaged

posted by Charlotte Bell on September 23, 2013 |

children’s justice centerChildren’s Justice Center I’ve driven by the house at least 100 times, perched as it is at the corner of the turnoff to City Creek Canyon, one of my favorite respites in Salt Lake City. It looks just like many of the houses in the Avenues neighborhood—modest and welcoming. You’d never know it houses a non-profit that communicates with the District Attorney’s office, Salt Lake’s 14 police departments, Child Protective

posted by Charlotte Bell on September 11, 2013 |

sukhasanaParvrtta Sukhasana: Ease with a Twist I recently had the good fortune to sit a 10-day silent Insight Meditation retreat. A friend once compared these sitting marathons to extreme sports, calling them “extreme sitting.” It’s kind of true. All in all, at this particular retreat, we sat for almost eight hours every day, alternating with five hours of walking meditation, in 45-minute increments. In 1988, when I first started going

posted by Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg on September 5, 2013 |

Slowing Down — The Power of Pausing

posted by Charlotte Bell on August 28, 2013 |

slowing downSlowing Down – The Power of Pausing Years ago I took a vacation to Baja, where some friends had relocated. One morning when the beach was completely deserted, I decided to take a solitary walk. As my pace slowed due to the mushy sand and my desire to shake off the usual brisk pace of my life, I began to notice things along the way that I might not have
