Yoga: For People Who Lift

I lift. You lift. We all lift. Raise your hand if you do yoga? [Cue crickets chirping] Chances are not many of you raised your hands. I can count on one hand the total number of times I’ve been to a yoga class. In fact, I wrote about taking one HERE. It was okay, but it’s… Read more

Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 1/30/15

Before we dive into this week’s list of stuff to read I wanted to remind everyone about TWO workshops I’ll be doing down in Australia in March. The first one will be a 2-Day event held in Ballina, NSW on Saturday and Sunday, March 7-8th. Details can be found HERE. The second one will be… Read more

Things I Used To Hate, But Now….Not So Much

Hate’s a strong word. When someone says they hate something they must really, and I mean really, have a strong disdain for whatever it is they’re referring to. For example, I’m typing this very sentence as I’m cruising 36,000 feet above the ground on my way back to Boston (from sunny Florida), and as everyone knows… Read more

2012: The Mayans Were Wrong and the “Best Of” In Blog Posts

In it, I used part of an old article I wrote years ago titled 4 Things Your Girlfriend Should Know, where, in the first part of… Read more

Tony Takes a Yoga Class – Part II

For those who missed it, yesterday I rehashed some of my (admittedly early in my career, albeit I still agree with 95% of it) thoughts on yoga.  And, what’s more, I left everyone in a bit of cliffhanger, stating that I did, in fact, attend my very first yoga class this past weekend. To recap:… Read more

Tony Takes a Yoga Class – Part I

“Is there anyone here who’s new or who’s never done yoga before?” the tall, lean, yoga instructor asked. Taking a glance around the room, with my girlfriend sitting directly to my right, and surrounded by a roomful of women, I reluctantly raised my hand.  Slowly.  I gave a nervous, meager chuckle and that’s how it… Read more
