Here’s a yummy lunch I’m about to eat. I’ll share the recipe, below. What does chickpea and dumpling soup have to do with Yin Yoga? How about: expectations? In the vinyasa flow yoga class I taught last evening, I shared some of what I learned in a workshop over the weekend. This was while my students were in lizard pose (Utthan Pristhasana).
