Namaste (I bow to the divine light within you).

Yoga teaches us to find our true selves, but it’s always nice to start with a simpler introduction. So, I’m the author of Yoga Mind: Journey Beyond the Physical (North Star Way/Scribner), among other books, and a former senior editor of O, the Oprah Magazine. My writing has been featured in the Oprah Magazine and Good Housekeeping, Jane, Latina, Details, Harper’s Bazaar, and Rolling Stone, and on, the Huffington Post, and other websites. I’ve been on The Today Show, the Early Show, NPR, and other media.

I’m a certified Yoga instructor and Yoga teacher trainer, and I created the iTunes app Take A Yoga Break, a series of Yoga-based moves to counteract the harmful effects of long periods of sitting.

“You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn how to surf.”

Mostly I’m like you: a spiritual surfer, learning how to ride the waves of life, as Swami Satchidananda, founder of Integral Yoga, said. 

Let’s use the spiritual tools of Yoga to learn how to ride them together. Connect with me on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, and email me at
