March asana of the Month

pincha mayurasana/forearm balance
recently i have been having trouble with my right wrist while doing yoga. i don't have a lot of flexibility in my wrists and yoga can put a lot of pressure on tight wrists. this is particularly frustrating since a lot of the more advanced poses (arm balances, handstand) are hard on the wrists. so normally i might have been a bit panicked about the pose of the month being forearm stand. but i am so excited about it being a pose that is not hard on the wrists i am practically eager to give it a try!

jak's manifesto

Climb mountains

Enjoy the view and the heat, effort, and impatience

On the way up

Do yoga

Eat strawberries from a pick-your-own farm as often as possible

Be a friend

Spend more time in the coop than at target

Do nothing

Make curry from scratch

Allow change

Be change

Live with awareness


Practice kindness


Stand barefoot in the dirt form time to time and breathe

Find the perspective of nature, a grain of sand, the grand canyon


Laugh out loud

Believe in peace

Make good coffee

Climb mountains
