I just posted on Medium about the DIY subscription service Whimseybox. The site is live and taking signups and charging people's credit cards. This site is a sham! Plus food for thought on subscription services and the wrong way to shut a startup down.

This Sunday 7/13 and two Sundays after that on 7/27 from 1:30 - 3:00 pm I will be teaching a Yoga and Body Awareness class while chiropractor Shawn Bek is away.  

This will be a Level 1 practice in which I'll cover principles of alignment, safety, and getting the most out of the pose for each major category of the body: core, feet (including Achilles and calves), shoulders, hips, and spine (including forward folds, backbends, side stretches, and twists).  

Whether you are a beginner wanting to learn the fundamentals of yoga or an experienced practitioner that wants to learn general principles that will make your practice better, this will be a great class for you.  It's also a nice way to get that special family member or friend to start practicing yoga.  Hope to see you at Avalon Art and Yoga in Palo Alto on 7/13 and 7/27!

There is something to be said for having a Zen-like austere decor.  A new study looked at how visual surroundings in a kindergarten class affected students' ability to concentrate and learn. (Montessori schools have long emphasized the calmer, understated look.)
