What could possibly be a better way to spend an hour with your family then by doing yoga together? Over the years, I have taught so many variations of families. Now that I’m teaching family yoga with Zephyr, it’s one of my favorite ways to teach yoga. For those of you looking to start teaching some family yoga classes, or even find a teacher to do a class in your neck of the woods, here are some ideas: 1. Pick an organization and do the family yoga classes at a farmer’s market, yoga studio or school and do the class by donation! I’ve been giving to organizations like Africa Yoga Project and CitySeed.

The FOJY Blog is Back!
Is this thing on?? Well hello there! It has been quite a while since I’ve written on this blog, but it is part of my 2015 goals to write here weekly.

Together We Are One
This is the theme and mantra of this collaboration between Team Next Generation Yoga and Africa Yoga Project. I spent the last year fundraising and raised over $8000 to make this trip happen. This week has been inspiring, emotional, exhausting, enriching and joyful. I worked hard to get here, but also feel so lucky that I get to do this. This work is beyond amazing. I’ve been connecting with people who live so differently then me but inside are truly the same. It’s hard to put into words what is happening here. If you’ve seen my facebook posts, you’ve been able to see what an incredible experience this has been so far. Our goal was to come here to teach 80 Africa Yoga Project teachers how to bring yoga to the children they already teach. These teachers have already been trained by Baron Baptiste, but have never learned to formally teach… Read More »
