He slept through most of the 11 hour flight and we spent the whollllllle day out and about, we even bought a harmonium and ran around barefoot everywhere.
Now we’re finally home with @aminahtaha and Aziz and Miko who are having us over while we’re here for our visit!! We feel so blessed.
So excited to see you guys in class this Saturday and Sunday!! Any new vegan places you recommend we visit? It’s been 4 years since I moved away from NY! I’m sure there are lots of new things around now!
with having kids. Changes to my body, to my time, to my relationships, to my work...
But these changes are inevitable and natural regardless of your choice to have kids or not.
A child might be a clear embrace of change in life but there are endless ways to embrace change. You don’t need to have a child to experience your own rebirths.
They can occur passively and with resistance, or actively, with our full loving acceptance.
My body IS different. I am different. Your body is different too. Your are different than your were yesterday.
Everyday we have an opportunity to wake up anew and participate in our rebirth.
You CAN shift your perspective, you can see life differently, indeed LIVE life differently when you respond to life moment by moment, breath by breath.

Prioritize your practice but do not allow that devotion to be twisted into the expectation that others should do the same.
Yoga practice (hopefully) allows us to connect so deeply with ourselves that connection with e v e r y o n e is possible, without attachment and without any need to change or mold them.
When taking on a practice, it can happen that we actually separate ourselves from others through judgment and in doing so, block ourselves from reaching truth and freedom from delusions.
When I met Ezra he did not practice asana nor veganism, and I never asked or expected him to.
I felt (and still do) that he is perfect beyond belief. I knew it was not my task to “work” on him.
It is my task to work on myself.
Being in this beautiful partnership, the individual responsibility we take for ourselves heals us both. And I love the process of growing, and letting go and transforming together. And I LOVE that Ezra sees and feels the light and power of yoga and that his own heart led him away from the consumption of animals.
We are often asked if we raise our son vegan. We do. And while I wish for him to feel as we do about the implications of eating meat, I would never expect him to do as we do nor think as we think.
I want the same for him as I want for myself and for everyone else: to be awakened to their own true selves- to their own limitless awareness, to their own compassionate hearts, to their own brilliant minds and to their own sacred, wise bodies.
