She’s currently handing out a lot of E’s—not for Excellence but for the Elimination of highly processed foods, hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup, refined sugars, and flours, chemicals, dyes, and food additives. Cooper is on a mission to give students access to regional fresh, whole, and healthy foods...

 

Holistic Nutrition


by Daralyse Lyons

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.

 

Yoga

I am a Psychology Instructor at two colleges, and I teach how to record, interpret, and understand dreams in the classroom. The students have a wonderful time analyzing their dreams, and we usually maintain an active discussion filled with curiosity.

Dreams are our communication with our inner mind, and allow us to understand ourselves through the use of symbols called the Universal Language of Mind. We are all connected in subconscious mind...

 

 

Dream Medicine


by Tara Hornich-Lisciandro

Standardized tests, course exams, homework, after-school sports and activities, part-time jobs—many of our students live very busy and pressure-packed lives. As educators, we teach them how to better organize all of the “stuff” in their lives, but we rarely teach our students how to organize their thoughts and soothe their anxieties. Often, the stress of their daily lives accumulates until a “worry ball” forms...

Tell me a story.

That tender and urgent imperative appears to date to early humankind...

Yoga


by Lisa McCourt

I’m seeing a lot of suffering lately around marriages that are falling apart. And it makes me feel downright rebellious. Not only because of the tremendous obstacles I had to stare down when creating my own original paradigm for divorce, but now on behalf of my smart, kind, competent students getting totally unraveled by what I consider absolutely unnecessary, erroneous, and archaic notions about marriage and nature of human partnership...

 

Editor's Note from Lisa McCourt: To follow up on my recent post about my freakishly-customized divorce, I want to share a misperception I see frequently with my Joy-Training clients . . . one that has me raising a new flag for divorce-reform!
