GENTRIFICATION – HOW DO WE PROTECT DIVERSITY? by Brooke Allison, edited by Leslie Hinson

Perhaps it’s time to confront a rumor. “I stopped coming to your studio because you displaced a Co-Op that used to provide the homeless community with free food…” This is an uncommon, but not completely isolated, comment that I received. As a business owner, these occurrences make me stop dead in my tracks, in the middle of...

ONE VOICE NASHVILLE – THE POWER OF HEARING THEIR STORY

By Mary Margaret Randall “What do you do besides teach yoga?” I get this question a lot. Probably because I carry around a massive backpack with my laptop in it all the time, have a floating office around town, and have a biiiiit of a crazy schedule. In a nutshell, I help youth tell their story. This is done through a nonprofit...

REFLECTIONS ON MY HOT 26 TEACHER TRAINING BY REBEKAH PAHL

A Slow-Burn Story As I’ve grown into learning to recognize and trust my intuition, I’ve noticed that she usually appears as a gentle nudging before growing into a flame. This is how I came to the decision to dive into the Hot 26 Teacher Training. I’ve been practicing Hot 26 for five years now, and part of the HYEN community...

MY YOGA STORY: MORE LOVE, LESS FEAR, MORE OF WHAT YOU WANT IN YOUR LIFE

From: Allison Fallon I started going to yoga about six weeks before everything fell apart. My husband-at-the-time and I had been trying to have a baby for almost two years at that point, and I was starting to lose hope that it would ever happen for us.

MARCH 21-DAY CHALLENGE: CHOOSE-YOUR-OWN!

I didn’t grow up in a church that practiced Lent but I’ve always liked the idea of Lenten Season. 1) Because I like a good challenge or maybe I like the opportunity or excuse to try something new or clean up my routine. 2) Because I value the concept of shaking up routine, taking something away that I depend on, making myself a little...

In her TED Talk, “Let’s Get Naked,” Sheila Kelley says that “we are just beginning the 4th wave of the Feminist Movement: The personal reclamation of the female body and the sexuality within.” I couldn’t agree more...

WHEN I LET GO OF WHAT I WANT, TO TAKE CARE OF OTHER PEOPLE, MAYBE I GET WHAT I NEED

After a particularly long workday, I was driving down Woodland Street en route to the Turnip Truck for some dinner goods. Realizing I had some letters to mail, I stopped at the post office and dropped them in the box. Before I could get back to my car, the woman selling newspapers outside hollered that she had a question for me: “Can...
