2020 Fall Update
After the long, stark Spring in NY City, I was grateful to start working part-time in June, as a Yoga Therapist in Dr. Loren Fishman’s office. My work with Dr. Fishman, who wrote the books on yoga therapeutics, has been deeply rewarding.
What has sometimes surprised me while working alongside Dr. Fishman, whose wisdom and knowledge is vast, is not that yoga works as a healing modality. It’s how frequently yoga is the best therapy and how quickly some therapeutic issues are either healed or radically improved with the right yoga.
As summer gives way to fall, I’m aware the challenges the year 2020 has presented are not over, and for many, these challenges may deepen. Who knows what the fallout from COVID-19 will be or how the election will unfold in a year fraught with protests and social unrest? And who knows how many positive changes we’ll see due to the creative, entrepreneurial human spirit?
What I do know is that this is the ideal moment to start or deepen a yoga and meditation practice. And we can do so from the comfort of our own homes.
In addition to teaching Dr. Fishman’s yoga therapeutics in his office, I continue to teach Private Yoga and Meditation sessions on Zoom and Skype. (Facetime and WhatsApp are good backups when Internet connections fail.) In upcoming months, I look forward to teaching some group classes online.

In my role as a consultant, my intention is to help deserving, high integrity organizations, transform and evolve. For more information about my consulting services, visit alicehoganconsulting.com.
Finally, as we collectively navigate this transformational time, the view I choose to embrace is that everything is an opportunity for our expansion. May we use this time well, individually and collectively, to go deeper in our practices and to follow our bliss.
