Politics, Religion, Yoga, and Non-harming

Posted by on Nov 4, 2016 in Evolution Blog |

As this painful, divisive, excruciating, acrimonious, interminable election season winds down, we thought we’d take a look at Ahimsa, yoga’s first tenet. It means non-harming; it is something we as a people have been lacking lately.

I saw a meme online this morning: “When it’s all over, all that really will have mattered is how we treated each other.” How well have we treated each another? Not very.

Featured Yoga Teacher: Martha Whitney, 25th Anniversary

Posted by on Oct 25, 2016 in Evolution Blog |

This year marks the 25th anniversary of Martha Whitney’s yoga teaching. This morning I had the privilege of spending some time with her on the phone talking about how her practice and her teaching have evolved. We both sat at our windows enjoying the fall. Our conversation was bookended by morning glories and blue jays. Of the flowers, Martha joked, “They’ve gone wild. Some days I try to count them – that’s a little bit compulsive.”

She started practicing yoga more than 30…
