On graduating, family, and cultivating

“Wherever you are, cultivate your practice in that place.” One of my favorite yoga instructors said this over us last week in class. I haven’t been able to shake those words, or the ones she said to me as she approached me with a strap, looped it around my back as I curved in camel. […]

Spring: Endings and Beginnings
