One month from now, I will install myself at the Isha Foundation’s ashram in Coimbatore, ready to attend Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev’s Inner Engineering Program. In the Philippines, thousands of people are dying as the typhoon has destroyed everything in its path. This is not the work of the devil,…Continue

Between the hills and valleys of our lives there are moments of indifference. When our dreams have been shattered, our hearts have been broken and we have not yet gathered the strength to start climbing the next hill, build another dream or heal our heart. The pause between inhalation and exhalation, a state of no-mind where there are no words for neither asking questions or giving answers; only silence remains. There, we can…Continue
there is someone by the name of Mr.John who is sending out messages in our group, has anyone received any of these emails. I do not think he belongs there...
For some reason empathy has been heavy on my mind lately. You know, the type of human emotional connection that doesn’t allow us to walk past the same homeless man on the corner asking for that one dollar every day. Or the woman on the subway with two babies attached to her hip, bags under her eyes as heavy as the laundry she’s also hauling. To you feeling the pain of your close friend mourning a loss in their life as if it were your own loss. Thank goodness we have evolved as species with…Continue
The need for control is such a mindless, and for some people an effortless, force in everyday life. I am in my mid-twenties and I am just now truly embracing, or wanting to embrace more, the feeling of total free fall in every aspect of my life. I understand this is easier said than done, and it takes ones entire lifetime to learn the discipline of acquiescing to your circumstances. And even at the end of our journey called life, we may not have learned to fully let go but we open more doors…Continue

Ever since I was little I have enjoyed being by myself and the only times I’ve felt lonely has been in a crowd of people, who I have been socially obligated to socialize with. But in the silence of my own company I’m never lonely although I may appear alone.
Many years ago, it became clear to me that…Continue

Yoga teacher training in India at yoga school Rishikesh Yog Peeth - RYS 200, 500.
So, on our last Saturday before graduation we had a talent show. Needless to say, it was amazing, inspiring, and beautiful to see so many people show their gifts. I wrote a piece to share with everybody, and is as follows [by the way, I added a couple snips from my last blog into it]:
Well, this is it, week 6 is upon us. So much has…

Last week I received a text message from the guy owning the yoga center where I work. It said:
”Jenny, tomorrow an elder lady will show up for your class…she’s a bit special… just wanted to let you know!”. I looked at my phone and thought: ”Great!... ”a bit special…?”. One day later, I reached the center more than half an hour before my class would start and while winding down with a cup of tea after my bicycle-ride there, I chatted to the receptionist.…

It's been a year now since I have been on my Teacher Training Course here at Rishikesh Yog Peeth and it's odd to experience the current 200 hour course from the other side. Once again we have a lovely group here staying with us at RYP but it's all so different. I remember quite clearly that our entire course last…Continue

”Jenny… how many gallons of oil does it take to run a galaxy?”. My master is looking expectantly at me with blue eyes, playful as a child’s. I start laughing and he starts laughing as well. Why aren’t apples growing around Christmas? Why do flowers blossom when they do? I come to him with a head full of why and how and I always end up leaving with blissful ignorance. Some things are my business, my responsibility… other things are God’s business and God’s…Continue

I find it ironic that the infinite always inhabits the finite. We are infinite consciousness living vicariously through this finite gross body. The profound moments are those where we realize our infinite nature, everlasting peace, and complete unity with everything around us. Even the things we cannot see with the naked eye, from the stars and galaxies to microorganisms, are nothing but us in other forms. We are so connected to this entire universe, we are the entire universe,…Continue

The learning never stops once you’ve opened yourself to everything around you. Every experience in everyday teaches you just a bit more, about yourself, others, and life. It’s quite an amazing phenomenon really. Even things that you never thought were possible of yourself, you find are possible, the truth of yourself in fact. Sometimes we limit ourselves to a certain degree, trying to fit in this ideal character of “me”, when the truth is that we have no…

The time flies when you’re having fun; I can’t believe week two of training is winding down to a close. Although this time has gone by at what seems light speed, I feel like I’ve been here a long time. I think it’s because of the comfort I’ve been able to find here despite how foreign it all started out being. The culture here is so welcoming, rich, and built on a humble life style; I can’t help but be amazed at the way everyone seems so happy, yet they have so little material wise. It’s a…Continue

I never cease to be amazed. By the beauty of this place, the people I talk to, the things I learn, my whole environment really. It seems impossible to go an hour without learning something new, whether it is about an asana, the pranayama, philosophies, or myself. This only makes me think about how much I will have learned 5 weeks from now, and that’s a beauty in itself. Wow.
When I came here I was nervous about leaving all that I ever known behind me. Leaving…

Yoga teacher training in India at yoga school Rishikesh Yog Peeth - RYS 200, RYS 500.
One of my lifelong dreams has been to come to India, and it is incredible to actually be sitting here now. I still have trouble realizing where exactly I am on the globe, and when I do, it’s the most enlivening feeling I’ve ever experienced. I was drawn to Rishikesh Yog Peeth to get my yoga teacher training certificate because I wanted a true yoga immersion that…Continue
... I was on an airplane on my way to India. I was very excited about the experience and this is what I was writing on my journal... I was thinking about all the things that I wanted to accomplish there.
On my way back home, I returned to that drawing and as I reviewed all the points I noticed I realized all…Continue

Yoga styles today vary from gentle to strenuous although all share three common elements those being asanas (poses), pranayama (breathing) and dhyana (meditation). Yoga and dhyana are well known to be stress-reduction techniques and possible treatments for depression and anxiety. There have been many studies conducted that have verified this. But how do we take these techniques from the mat and out to the streets so that it may be useful to our…Continue
