Walkin' After Midnight

Walkin' After Midnight

Just like that Patsy Cline song, I sometimes find myself "walkin' after midnight"--alone. If you're a woman, this is something you are not supposed to do. Ever. Rape is supposed to get you at night, right? Rape is supposed to come in the form of a stranger leering at you from the bushes. What about rape that doesn't happen that way?

Ana Forrest, I disagree

Though I am not currently teaching yoga at a studio, I read much of the yogic literature I have from both a teacher and student perspective. As some of you may know, I have been reading Forrest Yoga creator, Ana T. Forrest's book, Fierce Medicine: Breakthrough Practices: to Heal the Body and Ignite the Spirit. There is so much in this book I identify with and love, but yesterday, while reading I came across something Ms. Forrest and I greatly differ on.
