Yoga


 

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: Yoga is one of the most beneficial healing modalities. Each Ayurvedic doshan can be balanced via a unique yogic practice. For Vata, calming asanas and pranayama will relax, revitalize and restore direction of the wind and space elements. This Chopra Center video offers a beautiful demonstration of a Vata calming Yogic practice. Namaste

 

Ayurveda

Over the last few decades, yoga has become quite popular, even trendy, outside of the Eastern Buddhist and Hindu cultures. For example, Harris Interactive Service Bureau reported in February 2012 that 16.5 million US adults practice yoga...

 

Editor´s Note: Most yogis will claim that yoga has many benefits, perhaps not as clearly visible at first, such as improved circulation, digestion and elimination, lowered stress and tension, improved concentration, and on, and on. All that to say, a recently published review in the journal Frontiers in Psychiatry has revealed that a regular yoga practice can have positive effects on various mental health disorders, such as depression and sleep complaints, as well as improve symptoms of illnesses such as schizophrenia and ADHD. Read on to find out more!

Editor's Note: Much fuss has been made about the lack of representation for men in the yoga community and on the covers of certain national yoga magazines, but men are certainly making strides in yoga. This video chronicles one man's journey with ex-pro-wrestler turned yogi Diamond Dallas Page's "Yoga for Real Guys" program. His jaw-dropping evolution shows how anyone can transform their body. At first you’ll see that he was unable to walk without the aid of canes. By the end of the video, he’s doing headstands and RUNNING. Unbelievable! Yoga truly is amazing!

 

Yoga

This holiday season, enlarge your experience of both giving and receiving in your most meaningful relationships by cultivating the same mindful attention you practice on your yoga mat.  There is no gift you could offer that will more profoundly enhance the emotional connections in your life than your focused attention, which explains why most people cannot distinguish between the experience of being deeply listened to with being deeply loved...

 

Editor's Note from Lexi Yoga: Instead of focusing on finding the right presents to give for the holidays, try to focus your attention on being present, and enjoying the moments as a positive experience. We sometimes forget the importance of the receiving end, and how to be grateful to receive love. Here are some tips on how to make this holiday season more love focused.

 

Yoga


by Zelinda Yanez, RYT

When I was a young girl I loved to read etiquette books. Really. I remember reading once that the purpose of etiquette is not to make judgements about people and their behavior, but rather to provide a set of guidelines so that everyone feels comfortable and confident that they know how to behave in any situation...

 

Editor's Note: If you're new to yoga or even just settling into a new community and attending your first yoga class at a new studio, you may have discomfort and uncertainty about what to expect and what to do. The author helps alleviete your worries by clarifying what is expected of you as a practitioner, and what you can expect from her studio in Texas (which will apply to most yoga studios nationwide).

 

Yoga

When the mind isn’t functioning properly, performing even the simplest task is a difficult proposition. The problem of confused thinking is one that only seems to get worse as time passes...

 

Editor's Note: Does your mind chatter away incessantly? Most likely, it does. One way to quiet the mind and find deeper, richer peace and clarity is through meditation. Dhyana, which is sanskrit for meditation, is one of the 8 limbs of yoga. Yoga itself is practiced to actually prepare you for meditation. It gets all the fidgets and stiffness out of the body, so that you can sit quietly, for a very long time in deep dhyana…with the ultimate goal of samadhi (enlightenment). Read more to find out how meditation can quiet the monkey mind!

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: Low on Energy?  Ayurveda aims to continuously restore balance to the doshas and supply fresh energy for the body and the mind. In this lovely YING & YANG LIVING video interviewing Ayurvedic expert Jenny Ahn, several Ayurvedic suggestions are offered to restore energy to each of the doshic constitutions known as Prakriti. For Vata, Pitta & Kapha prominant prakritis, different self-care steps can be taken in diet, lifestyle and physical activity. Jenny discusses yoga styles, nutrition and bedtime routines to benefit each constitution. Enjoy!
