Perhaps more than anyone in recent history, Gloria Steinem has become synonymous with the protection of women’s health and safety.

A photo speaks to your eyes. A video speaks to your mind. After a busy, stressful (the opposite of what a yoga conference should be) day at Tadasana Festival, Waylon, Robert, Liz and I traveled above and beyond the noisy, crowded city of LA, along the glistening coast, winding up canyon roads, to a dream [...]

I hesitated at first, thinking it needed to be edited down to make it significantly shorter. But the 30 minutes of raw footage is such an intimate view into one of the more magical shoots I have ever had. Included in this post, are nineteen finished pieces from the shoot. As I watched this video, [...]

The fact that someone else’s journey could so abruptly and painfully bump into mine was humbling.
Here (or I guess there) was a person I have never met that just forever changed my day and life.

Source: community.omtimes.com via Emily on Pinterest What was I thinking? Last year I made two decisions for 2013. The one was to write more. The other was to start yoga again. Good, stretching, challenging ideals. I’d done yoga before, but had a about a year’s break and I’m really a complete novice when it [...]

10 Reasons I wouldn’t read elephant if I were a Man. Oh, wait: I am a man. I shave my face. I have a penis (I checked). I throw like a girl…with my left hand. I’m slow emotionally, but quick to wake up and apologize when I’ve blundered into a wall in the dark. 10 [...]

We’ve all seen the influx of yoga pose photos flooding Instagram, Facebook, the pages of Yoga Journal, Pinterest. People perfectly posed on the beach, on urban structures, woods, snow falling in the background, balancing on each other perhaps. I admit it, I’m guilty of it too. I’ve got a few I used for my bio [...]

I came to the Party with that background. I taught people how to read, fill out forms (welfare, social security). I would help them write letters to their sons in Vietnam, and be able to read information concerning them. Then we started the breakfast program. It was Huey’s idea that we needed to do more things in the community.

I generally love talking about green in everyday life as an expression of mindfulness, not uptightness–how to talk about it with loved ones and family, colleagues. ~ Waylon Lewis, elephant journal founder This Thursday, January 31st, Waylon will be talking green L-I-V-E with Megan McWilliams—a radio show you won’t want to miss.

Meghan Currie‘s Yoga Videos: click here for more. Click here for more, more.

No doubt about it, parenting is challenging. I gave birth to Griffin at home, in table pose, on a well-worn yoga mat. We were in front of the fire, in the middle of the living room. The mat was green and helped hold my focus during Griffin’s lighting speed, two-hour delivery. You probably know which [...]

“All photographs are memento mori. To take a photograph is to participate in another person’s (or thing’s) mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time’s relentless melt.” ~ Susan Sontag Source: flickr.com via Anjali on Pinterest Source: flickr.com via Kathy on Pinterest Source: theyroaredvintage.tumblr.com via Alyssa on [...]

It took me many years to return to the study of the nude figure in art. I was trained as a painter and it was customary to have nude models in the studio eight hours a day.

The pregnant female body is nothing short of amazing. Showing our love for one another and our new addition coming soon was the best photo experience we’ve ever had because we were able to shed our clothes and reveal ourselves in our birthday suits.

Okay, so I don’t always listen to my vagina when she speaks. Sometimes even, she has to yell to get my attention. Like the time a guy I was dating decided something he’d seen on a porn movie would work on my delicate lady parts—I called his technique the vacuum suction move, delivered with enough [...]

In a world of Cosmo BJ tips, porn sex ed and pre-pubescent pin-up girls, I often lament the dearth of quality articles, research and erotica from an empowered, mature feminine perspective.

I have a dirty secret about yoga. I used to hate it. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I liked the idea of it—the way those who made time for the practice became long and lean. Or, how the yogis I came into contact with had a peacefulness about them. Yet, what I didn’t like [...]

Gabrielle Roth was the most truthful, determined, vibrant, hilarious, seductively ferocious person I have ever encountered. She was so piercingly, honestly alive that it feels entirely strange to refer to her in the past tense.

It has been a rickety emotional roller coaster with my teacher alone in the front seat. Back in the aughts, I was an aspiring yogini in San Francisco. It was a commitment I’d made to myself, but it came with a snag: my allergy to spiritual pretense. I was raised in an Asian Buddhist home, hence my skin [...]
