Whatever You Practice, You Get Better At

When I was in graduate school, I had to start giving presentations at scientific conferences. Getting up in front of scientists who were leaders in their fields to present my data was terrifying.

Yoga is Freedom–On and Off the Mat

Leading an Authentic Life: Knowing when to say “yes” and when to say “no”

To lead an authentic life, it is important to know when to say “yes” and when to say “no.” However, often as a result of our conditioning and our culture, we have lost or never learned the ability to discern which answer would most honor ourselves and which would help us be honest with others.
