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


by Faye Martins

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!

 

Yoga


by Jeni James

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...

 

Yoga


 

Editor´s Note: Yoga has many purposes. Not only creating supple muscles or helping you stay grounded, but sending out energy and love to others. In many yoga classes, the yoga teacher may ask you to set an intention…that's similiar to what is being depicted in this yoga sequence. Sean Corn demonstrates the graceful and athletic movements that channel energy and love to a person or culture.
 

Yoga


by Christian Leeby

Standing poses should be the foundation of all yoga practices because they safely prepare the body for the next poses to come. As well, the standing poses teach us how to practice all of the other types of poses...

 

Editor's Note from Lexi Yoga: Christian Leeby shares with us how the correct alignment for warrior l prepares us for backbends. Learning the correct way to practice bending backwards can help to avoid injuries, and protect your lower back from getting compressed.

 

Yoga


by Ally Hamilton

Do you remember the story about The Little Engine That Could? Because in retrospect I think it’s kind of brilliant. You will be alone with your thoughts for most of your life. The quality of your internal dialogue will be the greatest influence on the experience you have as you move through your days...

 

Editor's Note from Brooke Nisbet: 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. There are 8 Limbs of yoga and the ultimate goal of enlightenment. To work towards this goal, one needs to learn to unite the mind, body and spirit.

Editor's Note: "The Lotus Dilemma". Leslie Kaminoff explains why your left (or second knee) maybe at risk when practicing padamasana (lotus pose).

 

Yoga


 

by Judith Hanson Lasater

What drew me to the practice of asana was an intuitive feeling that these movements were not just “stretching”; they seemed to have some greater connection with my soul. It was only later after years of training that I began to learn the deep symbolism each asana represents. I now believe that each asana represents an aspect of myself and as such offers me a powerful doorway inward. Thus for many people the practice of asana can become more than a physical act; it can be a form of moving meditation.

 

Editor's Note: With the emphasis on asana practice here is a great article from a well known teacher that explains reasons we do asana beyond the physical and asana as meditation.

Modern science now confirms why humans have been practicing yoga since the beginning of recorded history: it is good both for the body and mind.

There is evidence in the archeological record that yoga has been practiced by humans for at least 5,000 years. Whereas this would constitute sufficient evidence for most folks to consider it a practice with real health benefits, as its millions of practitioners widely claim, skeptics say otherwise...

 

Editor's Note from Lexi Yoga: Yoga has been practiced for over 5000 years according to archeological records, and has been confirmed as a practice that can prevent and treat over 70 diseases. There is scientific evidence that yoga is the new medicine for the body and mind.

 

Yoga


by Jeni James

The city of New York and surrounding areas have had a couple of weeks of challenging times. We prepare again today for another storm. Fortunately, not another Hurricane, but rain, wind, maybe snow at a time when many are just getting settled back into their homes, many are still without power, and many without their homes that were destroyed by Hurricane Sandy...

 

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!

De-stress for a Happy & Healthy Life

by Yogacharya Dr. Ananda Balayogi Bhavanani

Stress is inevitable in the modern world because of the imbalance between the demands of one’s environment and one’s capabilities. Unless we develop awareness and consciousness of what we think, feel and do, there cannot be a lasting solution to stress.
