Editor´s Note: "You know how when you're on a long flight and you get tired and cranky and you just want the plane to land so you can walk and move and stretch out?", asks Zelinda. Zelilnda Yanez, a registered yoga teacher in Texas, put together this short video to answer that exact question.
Zelinda also commented, "I'll show you a few yoga poses you can do inside the plane so you can feel flexible, happy, and fresh when you arrive at your destination. Hopefully this little practice will inspire you to do some yoga poses on your next flight!" Have a look before you next long haul flight!

As a hypnotist, I often teach workshops on self-hypnosis and other topics at yoga centers, and some participants have asked if there are similarities and relationships between hypnosis and yoga. Usually, someone in the group points out that hypnosis seems similar to “Yoga nidra,” the deep, trance-like state that yogis experience during meditation. In both yoga nidra and hypnosis, the body is intensely relaxed and the mind highly focused. The comparison doesn’t end there; in his landmark book Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis in Medicine, Dentistry, and Psychology, Dr. William Kroger points out that there are great similarities between hypnosis and the eight “limbs” of yoga that are set forth in the Yoga Sūtras of Patañjali...

With the recent spate of mass shootings, people have begun to ask what it will take to reduce violence, especially among kids or in places where they spend time. We know that violence does not just occur in random places sparked by uncertain things. It also takes place daily in schools or on street corners...
Editor's Note: Violence is a result of many things, including mental illness and feelings of loss, anger, loneliness, and powerlessness. Fortunately, these feelings are something that a yoga practice can address, especially when meditation is guided by someone who intentionally wants to empower and encourage students who are dealing with these types of emotions. The author states that, in addressing these negative feelings, yoga gives its practitioners, especially young people, an internal locus of control.
We at ATH are committed to bringing together a worldwide community of individuals and organizations
dedicated to informing and educating people on topics relating to alternative healing of mind, body,
spirit and the planet at large.
