Almost three years ago I met the gorgeous and talented Natalie Brewster Nguyen when we both were in Montreal for a two-week training with AcroYoga Montreal. We haven’t really stayed in contact so much other than the occasional check-in on Facebook, but when I was planning my trip from west to east I got in touch […]

Well… I did say that I would update this blog while I was traveling, and I did alright for the first week, but then I seriously fell off the wagon. Oh well, I enjoyed the computer-free time!And now I’m back in sometimes sunny/ mostly rainy Portland and getting back to work. One of the places […]

death

Sunday was the first full day of spring. Spring is a time of birth and renewal. In order for things to be born or renewed, other things need to change, die or give way. I’ve spent the last few days in Berkeley learning from a living master of movement and somatic studies, Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen. […]

While I was back I had the good fortune to discover yet another in my growing list of excellent yoga-photographers. I love it when a photograph can actually recontextualize my understanding of a posture and shift my perspective in a new way. Boulder photographer Jim Campbell works with a gorgeous aesthetic that evokes a movement’s sensuality and explores playful and quirky approaches to his subjects.

According to some, this corner of the Himayalas is not only the birthplace of what is now the yogic tradition, but it may also be the kingdom of Shambhala which “is a mythical kingdom hidden somewhere in Inner Asia

grocery cart

My guess is, that unless you’re shopping at a fun-filled farmer’s market, your grocery list probably doesn’t elicit cries of “Whoopee, it’s time for food shopping!” Unless, that is, you’re part of Improv Everywhere…

Guerrilla Gardeners

Guerrilla Gardeners are the superheros I’ve been waiting for, and a total superhero kind of club that I can join (for once).

The Waterpod was envisioned as a self-sustaining living space that might be recreated in the future to address issues of land […]

where the wild things are

Ok, I know this post isn’t food or yoga… But it’s Where The Wild Things Are!!! Which is now a movie!!! Opening in October! This is very exciting for me. Growing up as an only child who moved around a lot (and was too shy to make many new friends,) the story of mischief-making Max […]

The lovely Alice Waters and her gardeners

I’ve had the window for The Chez Panisse Foundation open on my browser for over two weeks now. I keep meaning to post about their projects, but I keep getting sidetracked reading Alice Waters’ cookbook The Art Of Simple Food (and I’m totally distracted by the sunny summer days outside the window and the simple […]

Gerhard Joren‘s photos deal with life, culture and politics in Asia addressing some fairly “sensitive” themes without romanticizing or becoming didactic. The bio link on his site doesn’t seem to be working right now but I’ll keep checking back for more info on this very interesting photographer. Check out his Urban Yoga album and refer […]
