I am so grateful for this site.  For $18/month (!), you have unlimited access to more than 600 yoga and meditation classes from some of the very best instructors practicing today.   The classes can be selected based on your preference --- from 5 - 90 minutes.  Beginner to very advanced.  Mediatative to rigorous and physical.  There is absolutely something for everyone.   Best of all, it streams directly to your home laptop so you can do it on your time.

The only somewhat scary part is now I have no excuse!  I can do a 45 minute class while my dinner is cooking, I can do a 15 minute sun saluation before work, I can do a 60 minute vinyasa flow class on Sunday morning.  All of this without leaving my house!   No commuting time.  No parking, no hassles.  For anyone that ever *wishes* they had a more dedicated yoga practice, this is the answer.

I've taken some incredible classes as of late, and I'm trying to commit to 3x/week. To me, it is the ultimate mind, body exercise.  

An excerpt from a poem that was shared in a recent class that I took.  Enjoy -

In Blackwater Woods - Mary Oliver
Look, the trees
are turning
their own bodies
into pillars
of light,
are giving off the rich
fragrance of cinnamon
and fulfillment,
the long tapers
of cattails
are bursting and floating away over
the blue shoulders
of the ponds,
and every pond,
no matter what its
name is, is
nameless now.
Every year
I have ever learned
in my lifetime
leads back to this: the fires
and the black river of loss
whose other side
is salvation,
whose meaning
none of us will ever know.
To live in this world
you must be able
to do three things:
to love what is mortal;
to hold it
against your bones knowing
your own life depends on it;
and, when the time comes to let it go,
to let it go
