Welcome to my blog, So You Think You Can Yoga?® First, a bit about myself. I am a professional ballet dancer and registered yoga instructor from Los Angeles, CA. Now a bit about this blog. So You Think You Can Yoga?® is a unique potpourri of yoga, philosophy, anatomy, movement, dance and seemingly everyday experiences derived from my life as a movement professional. So You Think You Can Yoga?® is an evolution of one yogic thought, event or experience into the next. I hope you will join me as I embark on this yogic journey...who knows where we might end up!

A simple breakdown of the kleshas for your enjoyment:
Klesha is a Sandskrit word. A kleshas cause is suffering according to Yogic Philosophy. Kleshas are the constructs for the way we think. Some refer to kleshas as afflictions of the mind. As you read the list of the five kleshas, reflect on your own percieved suffering. Do you find yourself suffering from any just one klesha at the present moment? Maybe it's all five. My suggestion to you if you suffer from all five is DO SOME YOGA!
Notice that Raga and Dvesa are opposites. How do you behave towards that which you like versus how you behave towards that which you fear or dislike?
