Words are important to me. I've had a lot of different jobs in my life and I've played a lot of different roles - but I always come back to the written word.
I think words are important to all of us. Somehow, yoga has started to mean physical postures and I have questions about that. I can think of other words that are flashy but ambiguous: health, for example, or happiness. Right and wrong. I study meaning, look for what holds. I wander and I wrestle.
There are thousands of teachers who teach workout based yoga. But there is an absence of intelligent yoga writing - not prescriptive how to manuals or abstract philosophy but personally relevant inquiry. Something in me wants to write it all down.
