Yoga


by Brooke Nisbet, MA, RYT

When wild elephants are domesticated as babies, they are chained to a huge tree or to a thick iron stake driven deep into the ground.  This stake/tree is physically able to hold the young elephant, despite the elephant’s repeated attempts to pull free and escape...

 

Editor's Note: Yoga is a full-time life. Yoga happens beyond the yoga mat. It happens as you close your eyes at night, while you're driving, when you're interacting with others, when you're silently sitting with yourself. One of the ideas in yoga is to practice non-attachment. Not being stuck to a fear,anger, sadness, joy, excitement, expectation and so on. That takes you away from living in the present moment. Being tied down to your past fears and memories can also become debilitating and depressing. Don't allow yourself to be tied down to old beliefs like an elephant tied to a simple stake in the ground. He has the strength to easily pull free at any moment, but his mind keeps him bound. How about you? What's tying you down?

 

Yoga



by Ally Hamilton

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: You will NOT be happy when you lose 10 pounds, or have a different job or a drive better car, when you meet the “right” person, or when “things calm down”. You will not be happy when your biceps or bank account or boobs are bigger, or when your waistline is smaller...

 

Editor's Note: There is more to yoga than asana (poses). Many believe it's just a physical workout that's good for your body. Yoga is so much more. Part of the yoga practice is working hard to follow the yamas (moral codes) and niyamas (observances). One of the yamas to practice is non-attachment. Not being attached to outcomes, moments, sad times, happiness, expectations and so on. Living in the present moment and the now and not getting bogged down on how you wish things were or how you'd like them to stay. The author of this piece does a nice job of providing real life examples of this. Enjoy!

According to Columbia University’s National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse (CASA), in the United States alone there are 40 million citizens, aged 12 and over, who meet the clinical addiction criteria for nicotine, alcohol and other drugs. In addition, they report that another 80 million people can be considered to be in the category of “risky substance abusers” — that is, people who use alcohol, tobacco and other drugs in ways that can threaten the health and safety of members of the public...

 

Integrative Medicine


by Virginia Iversen

Kirtan and swadhaya are both Bhakti Yoga practices. Bhakti Yoga originated thousands of years ago in ancient India...

 

Editor's Note: There are four traditional schools of Yoga, and these are: Jnana Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Karma Yoga, and Raja Yoga. While a Yogi or Yogini may focus exclusively on one of these approaches to Yoga, that is quite uncommon. For the vast majority of practitioners of Yoga, a blending of the four traditional types of Yoga is most appropriate. One follows his or her own predisposition in balancing these different forms of Yoga. This piece helps to better explain Bhakti Yoga.
