Welcome to my blog, So You Think You Can Yoga?® First, a bit about myself. I am a professional ballet dancer and registered yoga instructor from Los Angeles, CA. Now a bit about this blog. So You Think You Can Yoga?® is a unique potpourri of yoga, philosophy, anatomy, movement, dance and seemingly everyday experiences derived from my life as a movement professional. So You Think You Can Yoga?® is an evolution of one yogic thought, event or experience into the next. I hope you will join me as I embark on this yogic journey...who knows where we might end up!

SO YOU THINK YOU CAN YOGA WISHES A HAPPY, HEALTHY, AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR TO ALL THE YOGIS OUT THERE!
Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas. I spent the holiday weekend in beautiful Oregon with my beau and his fam. Albany is a rural town in about 70 miles south of Portland. The scenery was vast and the air as clean and crisp as the wine I indulged. Time appeared to slow down in this quiet setting, which seemed ironic since my beau and I slept on the pull-out sofa in the living room amidst a cachony of coo-coo-clocks his mother collects. The clocks went off every hour on the hour simultaneously. Some may have found this annoying or even strange but I embraced it. The synchronicity of sounds was soothing. The subtle symphony of chiming bells were comforting. I knew I was in as safe place.
In case you missed the irony, here it is again: I arrived in this small quiet town to escape the concrete jungle that is Los Angeles, a place where I try to cram every possible thing I can in a 24-hour period to feel productive. I arrived in a place where time ceases to elapse. Yet the cachony of clocks every hour reminds me that even small towns need to delineate and perhaps digitally capture as many moments as possible.
HAPPY NEW YEAR AND DON’T FORGET TO COUNT DOWN OUT LOUD!
