Just a few light Sunday. morning thoughts that come out of our philosophy talk with Prashant.

Anokhi how I love you. Lovely afternoon amongst the textiles of my favorite store. 

I'm taking this time in Pune much differently. This is a time to learn. In the past, it has been acquiring and trying to get out as much as I possibly could and keeping up with the...

I, unlike many of my colleagues had a winding road to get to Iyengar yoga. My mother started yoga to help her with a debilitating back problem.  Now, I wish I could say my mother and I practiced and she took me to her classes but as a teenager, I pretty much avoided an...
