Public Talks

Use Yoga to Stop Complaining and Love the 405
Posted on Apr 20, 2011 - 02:39 PM

We are all unique and different in many ways, but we are also the same, unified by one common theme: we all have something to complain about! Brought together by a passion to be bothered by such things as the traffic, the food in restaurants and the movies we see, we invest a tremendous amount of energy in being dissatisfied. There is an alternative to this unsustainable use of our most precious resource…our life.

What if the 405, the city and all the people in it were a perfect representation of you in every moment, like a reflection in a mirror? Then the 405 is your central channel. The traffic is your prana. If your winds flow through the right place in the right way, the traffic flows too. Discover how yoga and meditation can help you get the winds flowing sweetly, stop the complaining and learn to love the 405.

This public talk was given on Sunday April 3rd 2011 at Black Dog Yoga, 4454 Van Nuys Boulevard, Suite 206 (upstairs), Sherman Oaks, CA 91403
