It has become a truism in our culture that we need to have high self-esteem in order to be happy and healthy. Psychologists have conducted thousands of studies touting the benefits of self-esteem.

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: This video made me totally tear up as I thought of all the women who could relate to this powerful piece, and I'm sure my female students would agree as we have had many discussions in class about learning to love ourselves. Just watch and and remember that meditation teaches you to embrace the beauty of yourself on the inside and out. Tis a freeing process.

 

Meditation

“The real act of discovery consists not in finding new lands, but seeing with new eyes"  Marcel Proust

Editor's Note: Sam Harris is an American author, neuroscientist and CEO of Project Reason. He received a PhD in neuroscience from UCLA, and has a BA in philosophy from Stanford University.

Holistic Nutrition

The mat beckons. “Come, sit, move, breathe,” it seems to say. The mat invites inquiry. Yoga itself is intensely personal, yet many students only allow themselves the experience of group classes. As a yoga teacher, I instruct both private and group yoga classes. In all of my experiences, both as a teacher and a devotee of yoga, I have arrived at the belief that yoga acts as a mirror for life – our experiences on the mat are a reflection of our experiences in the world. How does this translate on the mat in private and group sessions? In general, a personal, individual yoga practice allows us to turn our focus inward, revealing privately-held emotions and experiences...

 

Yoga


by Deborah Adele, MA

I recently heard a story about a teacher who was instructing on laziness. He proceeded to tell his students that there are 2 kinds of lazy. One is the kind where a person just sits around doing nothing...

 

Editor's Note: This piece is short, but meaningful. In yoga one tries to be present and practice mindfulness. The author, Deborah Adele, tells an anecdote that leaves you reflecting on your own ability to be present.
