Desiree Rumbaugh and I are psyched to be in the March 2013 edition of Yoga Journal for our Eat Green Challenge. Check out p. 37-44 – the article by Lavinia Spalding called Crunch Time: Revitalize yourself with a plant-based eating plan that celebrates fruits and veggies. Also, Des and I want to get a shout out to our dear old friend and colleague, Stacey Rosenberg, who is the “student” of Eat Green in the article.
A little over a year ago my husband, my child and I decided we wanted to live part time in Mexico for the next phase of our lives together. We committed to the vision by buying a small condo right at at surf break. We knew we were stepping outside the norm of education when we made this decision – as we haven’t found a school with a drop-in policy yet. We all like to ski and ride bikes and surf. Because I can work from anywhere, and my husband has a reliable manager for his business, we are location independent.

How do you uproot health issues that have been ever since you can remember?
First we need to understand the components of prakruti. We’re not just talking about the 5 elements here, but the earliest and most impactful impressions before you were mature.

What is your Maha Vaha Srota?
And why should you care?
I assume you like me grew up in the West, and with a Western perspective of the body as machine. The Eastern perspective is really different. Eastern systems see the body as a series of channels that carry consciousness. I know – what a concept. Some of the channels are subtle, like the mind channels and the prana channels. Some of the channels are gross… like the Big One. The Big One is called the Maha Vaha Srota and it is the mouth to anus channel.
