Spend some of this gorgeous day with your gorgeous self and the incomparable Aviva Levine. Forrest yoga 11:30am today.

Sutra 3 (did you see 1 and 2 below?) Our translation? Once we are able to get that rascally brain really focused. We can actually watch our own brain, get to understand it, and its limitations and habits and then we see ourselves and the world way more clearly. Basically through yoga we capture our own brain, tag it, and release it back into the wild for observation LOL. We are the tagged brain AND we are the observation team.

Special Memorial day schedule!

Sutra 2: Yoga is the skill of focusing the mind on one thing. So like noticing which background apps are running on your phone and closing the ones you don't actually need, so all your battery power can go to the most important app: candy crush. Like that, but in the brain.

Sutra 1: Its a new day, lets start learning and practicing this yoga thing again.
