The first problem for all of us, men and women, is not to learn, but to unlearn. — Gloria Steinem

One of the things that I love about this approach to yoga is that it requires that I question and change the way I am thinking about and seeing things every day, every time I come to my practice. What great practice for engaging in our daily lives and the world that is.

We shall not cease from exploration. And the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time. —T.S. Eliot

Saying goodbye to summer is a bittersweet experience. It’s my favorite season – I love the open ended quality of time in the summer and the sense of ease and possibility it invites. And summer often means travel.

Cross Country

This summer I moved to LA!

To make things even better, I love moving.

Amie, a good friend of mine, captured some great shots for Kay Campitelli Yoga this summer. Along with being a wonderful friend, she’s also a great photographer! Along with new branding, it was time for updated photos, so I decided to share the session with you, too! Amie, thank you for capturing the very essence of my love for yoga and life.  My favorites from the shoot are inside…
