I think a wonderful symbol of the Tibetan culture is the behavior of the stray dogs around their monastery. Most everywhere else I’ve traveled, stray dogs have been very skittish around humans. Here, they seemed right at home.

I just love this series on India.

One of the things that I love the most is when a student gets the inspiration to practice and follows it. Check out @mattexp here binding his hands and feet in Supta Kurmasana! When he was in our retreat in Thailand our assistants said his muscles were too big to put in this posture. His practice just goes to show that when you put in the work you get the results. It doesn’t matter what size, shape, gender or nationality you are, it just matters that you show up on your mat every day. Never give up, but never force. Turn up with presence and love on your mat, work with technique and alignment, give the body and mind space to open and then wait for it while being open to receiver it. What posture are you working on in the practice now? Thanks to Giuliano and everyone at Ashtanga Yoga Bologna for an awesome weekend! I’ll be back soon either for teaching or to grab some of those amazing green Italian figs.  (at ASHTANGA YOGA BOLOGNA - AYBO)

I love this pose so much. In some ways it is my nemesis because it makes me claustrophobic, but once I’m done holding it I feel like a tremendous weight has been lifted off my chest.

Interview with Maryam Mirzakhani, the brilliant Iranian mathematician who was the first woman to win the Fields Medal

  • Interviewer: What advice would you give lay persons who would
  • like to know more about mathematics—what it is,
  • what its role in our society has been and so on?
  • What should they read? How should they proceed?
  • Dr. Mirzakhani: This is a difficult question. I don’t think that everyone
  • should become a mathematician, but I do believe that
  • many students don’t give mathematics a real chance.
  • I did poorly in math for a couple of years in middle
  • school; I was just not interested in thinking about it.
  • I can see that without being excited mathematics can
  • look pointless and cold. The beauty of mathematics
  • only shows itself to more patient followers.
