No Mud, No Lotus: A Symphony

      4 Comments on No Mud, No Lotus: A Symphony

What does that even mean? No mud, no lotus? A symphony? A title like that out of context probably doesn’t make much sense but it was basically the theme to last Sunday morning’s yoga class.  A challenging 90 minute alignment flow class at Moksha Yoga Victoria with one of my fave teachers, Jonathan Boyd.

Because I have feelings about running!  And because I want to have an honest blog that reflects who I am as a person and that means sometimes there will be lots of posts about running and yoga and yummy recipes (like the one coming soon for dairy/wheat/oil/cane sugar-free cookies) and sometimes there will be lots of posts about… Read more »
