I believe that everyone can find that Peace.

FAQ

How can I cultivate good energy doing yoga at home?

I generally encourage if at all possible don’t have your yoga space be in your bedroom, which as you know has the energy of sleep there more strongly than other locations, and in yoga, of course, we are trying to Wake Up! If you use an office space or space where there’s a computer or TV, covering those screens with something pretty at least for your practice time can make a surprisingly big difference in the quality of your practice. Appropriate lighting also can help create an ambience if you are practicing in the evening.

But…Yoga with my phone?

If you are joining on Zoom, you are, of course, using an electronic communication device. Remember, whatever the device, don’t answer any calls or texts or emails or whatever during your practice time; don’t check the news or stocks or whatever; no social media. You know. For that time, your device is just a “yoga prop,” nothing more, and is to be used ONLY for that purpose. You may know what I mean.

How does a by Donation studio work?

The donation requested is $10-20 per class; this IS NOT a cost! Please give what you can, whether on this scale or not. Money should never prevent anyone from coming as much as they want, and no one is ever turned away for financial reasons. From the blog: thoughts on donation yoga

How does being a Go Deep Member work?

Membership simply means you’ve signed the waiver.  Once you’ve signed the waiver, you’ll get a password to get you into the studio where you will find the Zoom meeting links.  You’ll also get the passcode for all of the Zoom classes. I recommend that you try to put your mat down on the ground and sit for a few minutes before class begins to center yourself.

Lazy?

Over years, I found it very helpful to be able to see laziness in myself clearly and to actually claim it as part of the whole picture of me, though it was uncomfortable. It felt like an important part of my healing.

I Hope the Divine Mother…

November 13, 2022 (A note added later: I wrote the below after noticing this phenomenon happening in my mind. I was not going to publish it, but events arose that seem to indicate that it might be good to do so, including a quote from Amrit Desai again: “Living in the...

Namaste?

Why Involve Ourselves in Physical Yoga?

May 15-20, 2022 I’ve gotten variations on this question several times over the past month or so, so it appears that this is the thing to write about. In classes, I was recently reading the chapter entitled “You Are Not Who You Appear to Be” from Stephen Cope’s Yoga...
