Operating as usual

[03/17/20]   Hello friends,

In an effort to stop the spread of Covid19 I've decided to temporarily stop teaching my Tuesday/Thursday classes at Urban Wellness (effective 3.17.20.)

Please continue to stay safe and stay tuned for future class updates. 🙏


Humans of New York

Choose compassion. 🙏

Something is coming. This isn’t a philosophical debate. It’s not a math problem. It doesn’t require a calculator. The worst of what we’re seeing across the globe will soon be here. The only thing that separates us is time. Like most people, I’ve been consumed with the instinct of self-preservation. I’ve been trying to figure out how to best protect my family. These feelings tend to swell during times of fear and anxiety. But as a storyteller—I’m also feeling a different instinct.

I think this will be our generation’s World War. Hopefully this war will be short. Hopefully it will pass in a single season. Hopefully containment and warm weather will buy us enough time for a vaccine, and we will greatly limit the loss of life. And hopefully the most dire predictions will prove to be alarmist. But regardless, for a time, the entire world will be at war. The one fortunate twist is that all of us will be fighting a common enemy.

As with all wars, each of us will be remembered by our behavior during this time. What instinct did we embrace? The instinct of self-preservation? Or the instinct of compassion? During our World War--- did you make things better? Or did you make things worse?

Did you lash out? Or did you comfort?
If you have extra—did you share?
If someone relies on you for income— did you pay them?
If your neighbor lives alone— did you help them prepare?
If you wonder how somebody is making it—did you ask?

We’re going to be fine. But we’re going to be fine because there are so many people who will choose humanity over selfishness. There will always be people who make things better, and better, until finally things aren’t bad anymore. We will be lead by our health care professionals over the coming weeks. They will be our heroes. And they will need all our love and gratitude. For everyone else, the best way to save lives right now is social distancing. So I will not be continuing HONY as normal.

But I will still be sharing stories. No matter where you are, around the world, if you have a happy story—send me an email: [email protected]. Maybe something amazing happened to you. Maybe you overcame something that seemed impossible. Maybe somebody changed your life, and you want the world to know about them. Send me a short description of the story, and if chosen, we’ll do a full interview over FaceTime.

Humans of New York—Quarantine Edition—is beginning now.

Take care of yourselves.
And let’s take care of each other,


Sonder: The Realization That Everyone Has A Story

It's easy to become so consumed by our own lives that we lose perspective...
As our world continues to navigate this devastating virus let's keep the feeling of sonder in our hearts and allow it to guide our actions.⁣⁣
Be kind, be careful, and stay informed friends 🙏

sonder - n. the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own. Narrated, written, directed, edited and coined by Jo...

Our Story

Merkaba: Light, body, and spirit

Yoga: To unite

These two ancient words combine to describe the purpose of our classes together at Urban Wellness. My intention is to create a safe and welcoming space for students of all experience levels to move, grow, and find serenity.

Classes will be held every Tuesday and Thursday from 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm at Urban Wellness, with mats and other equipment available to use at no charge. Classes are $10 as a drop-in rate, but I offer a "karma yogi" discount to those who bring certain items for donation to Hope Women's Center.
