I read almost nothing but coronavirus coverage over the last two months (haven’t we all?), partially out of necessity as it rightfully sucked all of the oxygen out of the news cycle, but mostly out of anxious curiosity. As someone who makes others feel better for a living, I not only wanted to get knowledgeable about how it is affecting us in the present moment, but also how it will inform my work through massage and teaching yoga once we all get back to our lives.

If you’ve ever taken a yoga class, your teacher probably gave you some cues along the way to help you in your practice. Some common ones are tightening your abs to create stability in balances, engaging your pelvic floor for a firmer foundation in a pose, etc. The idea behind most cues is to add dimension to your experience of the poses, but also to remind you that you have a vast reservoir of strength and grace within you already, and your teacher is only there to help you find it. Most of yoga is a practice designed to calm the storm of our lives enough to have space to search for the anchor we have within.
