Amazing yoga with @tobieschuerfeld , delicious food and these views all weekend... #peaceandquiet #summerretreat #gratitude
The more I teach the more I realize what makes me the teacher that I am is not what I just learned through a teacher training/workshop/lecture/book or even the sequence/combination that I prepared few days before class, but rather what I've learned from my own practice, from experience, from my many many teachers. It's the unpredictables, the improvisation skills, the manner of working with situations that make me Joan. 18 years into teaching, I am finally starting to have glimpses of trusting myself 😊 
P.s. old picture but I don’t think I posted it at that time ‘cause I didn’t think it was “good enough” #PerfectlyImperfect

Last week I spent four days with my teacher and an incredible group of teachers and friends at Heathen Hill. We had no cell service (unless you hiked ten minutes up to the top of the hill), no wifi, no social media. I packed in such a whirlwind that I didn’t even bring a book, school work, or headphones. I spent my time practicing yoga in a way I haven’t in years, we workshopped and discussed the biomechanics of postures, practiced sequencing, we looked at bodies—our own and others. We talked about all sorts of things we’ve been seeing and working with in our lives and classes. We ate food prepared from the garden, watched movies, chanted by the fire and then made s’mores. I meditated, journaled, and I breathed. I got to know incredible people and made friends. My soul is nourished in a way it hasn’t felt in years. Thank you @yogachrissy and Heathen Hill for giving me the space to ground, explore, restore, and nurture. It feels so good to plug in and not unplug🔌. It matters that we care, it matters that we notice. #HokusaiSays #plugin #notice #payattention #yoga #yogaeverydamnday #learn #grow #teach #ground #team #tribe #vataseason #bhakti #samskara

The food at #HeathenHill: communal, internationally inspired, mostly vegetarian, fully delectable. (The highlight was actually last night’s dinner — and is not pictured because I attacked the buffet too quickly. Spaghetti and spaghetti squash tossed with garden tomatoes and “bright red” sauce, penne with Heathen Hill pesto, and the garlickiest, butteriest, crustiest bread.)

Just one of the loveliest places I’ve ever experienced on this earth: the grounds of #HeathenHill in the #Catskills. #dreamsideretreat #yoga #yogaeverydamnday

Even though I'll always be a summer baby (Hello Cancers 🦀!) I am such an autumn person. Give me a quiet cozy spot with beautiful views of colorful mountains and trees on a crisp fall day. A big sweater (even though I'm clearly not wearing one in here), a warm drink, a good book, a place to meditate (and maybe even a puppy, eventually) and I will be in my glory. 🍁🍂 #hellofall #yogaandtravelswithtaylor #autumnishere #cravesimplicity #yoga
