They do not preach learning and precepts, they preach, undeterred by particulars, the ancient law of life.” –Hermann Hesse If there is… Read more »

A few years ago I found myself experiencing the symptoms of adrenal stress…feeling exhausted during the day and tired-but-wired at night, unable to consume any caffeine at all without palpitations, catching every little cold that went around. I went to see my doctor, and after doing the requisite bloodwork and not finding anything that stood out, we determined that what I needed more than anything was more rest.

For the final interview in this series I am happy to introduce you to Misty Pittman, owner and founder of Moonshine Yoga in Kentucky. Misty tells us about creating a nurturing practice. Welcome Misty! How did you first come to your movement practice? My very first class was in college (about 15 years ago). It was in a dusty room in the rec center, with dim lighting and blankets (no yoga mats!). There were only a handful of us. I… Read more »
