It’s an important word in the Ayurvedic system to describe the toxic waste, sticky gooey sludge that builds up in the channels of the body when your digestive fire (agni) becomes weak due to overeating, improper food combining, too many cold liquids mixed with your meals, stress, or a compromised immune system...
Editor's Note from Lexi Yoga: According to Ayurvedic systems, most of us carry toxic build up in our bodies. This is called Ama - which is when the digestive fire (agni) becomes weak, due to our lifestyle of unhealthy eating and stress. Melina Meza shares with us the symptoms of Ama and ways to clean out your body for spring time.

In a recent yoga class, our teacher focused the intention of our practice on the PAUSE.
The space in between.
The space in between the inhales and exhales, in between the poses, and in between the cycles of our lives. She asked the class what the PAUSE represented to each of us...

In our society, the common belief is that we ARE our bodies. If your body doesn't measure up to the current standard of beauty, then YOU are not good enough. You might be judged as not beautiful, not handsome, not smart, not cool, not worthy...

March 1, 2013. I've been teaching class on Friday nights for 10 years now. Hard to believe as the time has flown by. The reason I keep teaching on Friday's is because more than any other day it is a day of recapitulation to make way for a more easeful weekend...
Editor's Note: One of many things we learn in yoga is to practice "non-attachment". This means not being attached to something sad, happy, enjoyable, etc. Have and feel the emotions as they are happening, but don't take them with you or keep looking to have them again, for the same reasons, in the future. This includes having expectations...when you get attached to how you think something will turn out was supposed to be, it can affect you...instead practice non-attachment.
