January 1st is the western world’s collective day of beginning again. Whether we practice the annual tradition of sweeping our door steps (out with the old and in with the new), completing unfinished projects before the stroke of midnight on the 31st or setting new year’s intentions, the research is in: the support of others […]

Gratitude is not a passive response to something given to us, gratitude is being awake in the presence of everything that lives within and without us. Gratitude is not something that is shown after the event, it is the deep, a priori state of attention that shows we understand and are equal to the gifted […]
Autumn Greetings, We’re steeping ourselves in the middle of Fall and all that comes with it. I’ve always looked at the approaching holidays as an opportunity to practice what I’ve been practicing all year. As a yoga practitioner, this means being kind whenever possible, delivering truth gently, valuing our energy and using it well, releasing […]

Q) The news can be so intense! How do I not sink into heart break? How do I remain engaged? I think that in the last few days and weeks, at some point or another, we’ve all asked ourselves this question. First, anyone interested in practicing at our studio certainly should know that whatever your […]

During our last trip to India in April, we visited Clement Town, a small Tibetan enclave in northern India and the home of Tibetan refugees who settled there after they were exiled from their country. A number of people at BTY have sponsored children through TCEF and they had the chance to meet the children […]
How did “Right Thought, Right Speech and Right Action,” the phrase that you say at the end of all of your classes, come about? I heard the Kent Bond of Willow Glen Yoga say “Right Thought, Right Speech, Right Action” in the late nineties when I was attending his classes very regularly. That phrase […]

I met Lorien Neargarder in 2009 as her much gentler yoga class followed a vinyasa I was teaching at Willow Glen Yoga. As we passed each other at the door, she was always so friendly and welcoming, and she quite obviously had a sense of humor. Her students would wait patiently in droves at the […]
Join our Summer Instagram Challenge from June 3 – August 25. Follow our Instagram (@breathetogetheryoga) and Jennifer Prugh (@jennprugh). Yoga- asana has a long standing history of creating systems of 84 postures. But historically, most systems are of seated postures.

Take at least one business class. Be sure you can run the business the way you want within the letter of current state, local, and federal laws. You don’t have to like all laws, but if you can’t abide by them, owning a business will cause you a great deal of suffering. Make a business […]

Perhaps like you, I have been sitting with how to evoke change in our world around us, as well as the world at large. Two rather “yogic” phrases have been on my mind lately: “meeting the moment,” and “meeting people where they are.” As I listen to many of you, I’ve realized that so many […]
California yoga studio owners, yoga teachers and workshop presenters: My hope in writing this is to educate yoga professionals at all levels in California. Have you heard that the California Employment Development Department is targeting yoga studios and yoga teachers trying to make the teacher the employee and the studio the teacher’s employer regardless of […]

I am quite fond of sweet potatoes, especially the purple ones. They are less sweet than their orange family members, with a delicious flavor. Like all sweet potatoes they are not part of the nightshade family (Solanaceae) but belong to the morning glory family (Convolvulaceae). My favorite one is the Stokes Sweet Purple Potato, particularly for this […]

Basic Broth Made In A Pressure Cooker What is more nourishing than a warm cup of broth on a cold day or when you are hungry? What feels better than a healing cup of chicken broth when you have the flu, or you just feel rundown? What smells better than to open the lid of a […]
Erika Abrahamian – Tehran, Iran Yoga shifted my life when I realized that most of what I perceived as reality was in fact a colorful fiction that my mind projected onto everything and everyone. Practice methodically strips away the falseness, so that I may be in dynamic relationship moment to moment. Through practice, I have […]

Katie Hoover – Fairfax County, Virginia When it became obvious to me that yoga had changed my life, I wrote a poem: Dearest Peace. Dearest Peace, I have seen you written as prayer, as symbols graffiti’d on walls. I have heard choirs sing of you and I have chanted your name in languages I do […]

“Yoga has saved my life. It has enabled me to learn about my body energetics and be able to operate fully as a human being. It has enabled me to connect to the Mother Earth energy and harness the Divine Kundalini Shakti. Around this time in 2012, I was disabled due to severe lower back pain and […]

Larry Munoz – San Jose, CA Connection! Early on my practice was mostly a physical thing, trying to find flexibility while positioning my body in ways I’d never experienced. Then I found mindful breath and realized balance of ease, softness and strength would best serve not only the asanas but life in general. Here began […]

Kirsten Johnson – Hamburg, Germany I was an avid gymnast during my childhood and loved the mat gymnastic exercises. One day I fell from the uneven bar during the competitions and injured my back. Years of doctors, instructions to rest – which I did not follow – and excruciating back pain followed. Even sitting on a […]

James Kiernan – Montgomery Village, MD “I grew up where in encounters with everyday people were rough, because a lot of them were just not happy inside. If you don’t ‘grow a spine’ people would and could walk all over you. This influenced my personality and mindset growing up, and inside I was just generally […]
