Bija has been sought out for her expertise by numerous organizations and publications. When Yoga Journal received a reader’s question on how to deal with frustrations in yoga class, Bija offered this advice:

“Practicing yoga isn’t causing your frustrated emotions, but it may bring existing emotions to the surface. The next time this happens, don’t try to suppress those feelings, but consider this an opportunity for self-inquiry. Bring attention to your breathing and the sensations throughout your body. Observe the emotion you’re feeling, and think about why you’re feeling it. Then, identify the emotion again but let go of the “why.” Just allow this feeling to be what it is, as you are experiencing it. Settle into the present moment, becoming aware of your heart and your entire body.”
