Off the Grid: New Zealand

IMAGINE mountains of volcanic ash. Emerald thermal pools, so pure that their vivid greens and blues reflect the towering mountains above. Spider webs straddling neighboring bushes, their translucent threads so fine yet so magnificently intricate in their weavings. Mud pools bubbling, popping, and plopping, fuming beside bursting geysers. Caves so cavernous your floating tube of … Continue reading

Off the Grid: London Calling

I just returned from a long overdue trip to London. Since my early twenties I have traveled there once or twice every year, and I nearly relocated there eight years ago. Over the last few years, a series of events has prevented me from making regular trips to my other home. Family-friends and pockets of … Continue reading

Off the Grid: Slowing Time

The whole culture is telling you to hurry, while the art tells you to take your time. Listen to the art.  -Junot Diaz Picture this scene: if you could stand in the middle of the sidewalk during lunch hour in Midtown Manhattan without being pummeled by the hoards of people passing by, you would find … Continue reading

Off the Grid: I See You

TWO WORLDS: I am intimate with two worlds. One is in the countryside, wearing worn denims and boots in the high-desert climate of Southeast Idaho, on a working cattle ranch. The other is in the concrete of New York City, sweating in a dance or yoga studio. In New York, people think I’m crazy for … Continue reading

Traveling around the UK, Israel, Switzerland, Italy, and all throughout California, Arizona, and the west coast of the US, not only were we experiencing physical challenges each performance, but the travelling between each city had many effects on … Continue reading

Off the Grid: Louisiana

It’s always amazing to me how markedly our surrounding environments affect our bodies, minds, and spirits. Whether visiting another city or escaping to the wilderness, I find that my city grip is loosened, maybe not completely but certainly significantly, when I get out of town. My mind can become cavernous (space to truly focus and … Continue reading

Balancing Your Summer Expectations

Summer, which technically does not begin until June 21, always seems so jam-packed with expectations, doesn’t it? Perhaps it is a culturally-shared memory for all of us when we were younger and Summer was the equivalent of freedom from school schedules to fulfill our playful wishes. In addition to play, Summer also bursts with projects … Continue reading

#Ruralist: "We’re made up of space, air, fire, water and earth. In the Northeast we experience the seasons with distinction and have an incredible opportunity to observe how the cycles and rhythms of the seasons change both around us and within us. During the winter, the body, like the natural world, is weak from fall’s death cycle and needs winter’s deep rest to reinforce its strength for spring. Winter holds a special opportunity for introspection. Trees and animals are always showing us how to live. In the winter they retreat and hibernate. The cold also encourages us to stay indoors so we can explore the benefits of quiet and stillness—to make time to develop and engage in self-care." - TaraMarie Perri, founder of @perriinstitute (📷 @pbcrosby | interview @jillianschein) Join @luminousarchitecture tonight at 6:30pm in Union Square for this week’s Fall Seasonal Yoga Series.
