Imagine how different your life would be if you truly did not worry about what anyone else thought of you. Taking any comment or action personally puts you in a position of reactionary judgment –you feel judged by someone so you judge that person back by being offended. Judgment never feels good (the giving or the getting of it) so I developed a meditative exercise to help my Juicy Joy students break the reactionary habit of taking things personally...

As a student of the public school system and, later, as a university professor, I failed to question the authoritarian nature of education systems and the methodologies they employ. It wasn’t until I began researching the writings of Paolo Freire for a project unrelated to my field that my eyes began to open. His work, while certainly calling attention to the colonial mechanisms that have driven pedagogy, primarily empowers students and teachers with healing solutions...

Repetitive strain injury (RSI) is the leading occupational disease in the United States, yet very few Yoga teachers know how to offer a safe lesson for injured students.

Common risk factors for RSI include computer or other intensive occupational or recreational hand use. Warning signs of RSI can be extremely subtle, and should be taken seriously. Yoga, if expertly modified for the person’s injury, can be enormously helpful for people with RSI; however, the wrong âsana practice can make matters significantly worse.
