Glimpse TV with Colleen Saidman Yee: From breath to death and all that’s in between.

Before I had ever really gotten to know Colleen Saidman Yee as the incredibly wise, generous, and profound yoga teacher that she is, I knew her as my godmother’s beautiful, funny neighbor. When I spent three weeks in Sag Harbor, NY last summer I fell in love with Colleen and all of her stunning facets: yogini, mother, humanitarian, compassionate soul, teacher, adviser, goddess, sexy badass, business owner, and simply stunning human being. I also fell in love with yoga, and I have Colleen and her husband, Rodney Yee, to thank for that in many ways. I spent the last year doing a 300-hour yoga teacher training with both of them. I originally signed up because I pretty much just wanted to hang out with them and infuse my cells with their example of a truly yummy marriage. Over the course of a year I actually found out that I really like teaching yoga (and I’m not so bad at it). But this realization was a distant second to how spiritually and physically nourishing it was to be around Colleen and Rodney. Colleen and I got to spend this past weekend together at the Menla Mountain Retreat Center in Phoenicia, NY at the Joy of the Yogini women’s yoga retreat. (Synchronistically with my involvement in Bindu Wiles’s The Shed Project, the theme for the weekend was the Goddess Kali, death, impermanence, letting go, and rebirth. I love how the universe works. I really do).  Colleen and I stole a few moments on a bench in the woods so she could share her thoughts on death, marriage, breath, impermanence, busy-ness, and more. I bring you, Yoga Goddess Extraordinaire, Colleen Saidman Yee!

Seven Things You Need to Know Before You Tell the Truth

I booked a month at the beach this August with the intention of writing, relaxing, cooking, doing yoga, getting a great tan, and spending quality time with other people I love who value space, green, slowing down, turning in, and chilling out. I am an ardent believer in the power of intention, but this belief…

Are you asking for it?

I was inspired to write about female financial power this morning after reading a post from Lora Sasiela of Financially Smitten on negotiation and how our ability to ask for what we’re worth gives us a much better return on investment than minding our portfolios or becoming a stock wizard (though these things are important…

Cash, Truth, and Upper Limit Problems

I woke up this morning in a sheer panic. It felt like there was a small rodent eating a hole in my stomach from the inside out. Graphic and gross, I know, but that’s what it felt like. I usually don’t wake up before 8:30am but it was 6:00am and my body refused to sleep…
