12well_physed-tmagArticleI love exercise sequence diagrams; I have a whole binder full of them. A favorite, lately, is the Times’ Scientific 7-Minute Workout. Twelve exercises, done for 30 seconds each (with a 10-second rest in between), with a focus on increasing heart rate and working all the main muscle groups. It’s great when you’re traveling and […]

East YogaReally happy to hear that East Yoga has reopened after last year’s fire, in a new space that’s bigger and brighter than the last. When flames and smoke destroyed our sanctuary, students and teachers stuck with us. We practiced in hair salons, park lawns and community centers. People organized fundraisers, donated money and generously gave […]

I’m very sorry to hear that East Yoga suffered a fire on November 4th, which destroyed much of the studio. As a small, local, independently-owned business, I’m sure this is extra difficult. They’ve been a fixture in Alphabet City for years, and I hope the community can help them get rolling again! Ways to help […]

Yesterday I realized: handstands are hard because you can’t see yourself at all. You stare at the floor between your hands, and even if you wanted to turn and look at your alignment, you couldn’t. Even with a mirror, you can get only cursory information. You need a teacher to tell you what you’re actually […]
