Enjoy my latest contribution in Elephant Journal! Just a little ditty about the great lessons I learned from my Ashtanga yoga practice…..and meeting my ego head-on.

If you’re not into yoga, that’s ok!  Our ego’s  (those pesky, yet great teachers) can show up in all sorts of places—not just the yoga room.  

The message? Learn to listen and get tuned into a healthy sense of growing and challenging yourself versus the unhealthy pushing which can lead to torn body parts(like my hamstring), messed up relationships, hurt feelings and all sorts of drama. 

Skip the drama, love that ego and ask it kindly to step down, because it’s not leading the show. Your healthy, conscious and aware self can handle the job just fine!
