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!

 

Yoga


by John Mongiovi

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...

Editor's Note from Lexi Yoga: We all know that everyone can benefit from yoga, but some people are afraid to start, as they aren't really sure what to do. Here is a yoga video specifically for beginners with detailed instruction. Perfect for anyone curious about yoga, and wants to learn some basic postures.

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.

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.


 

Editor's Note from Lexi Yoga: Most people seem to complain about being stressed these days. The build up of stress over time can weak your immune system and lead to many health issues. Eating healthy, exercise and the practice of yoga to calm your mind are essential for reducing stress, and how you react to stressful situations in your life. Here are 10 yoga postures that you can practice at home to relax and refresh your mind and body.

by Silvia Mordini

I can't recall exactly when I started using teaching stories to share yoga on the mat but I do know that these moments of sharing something personal to highlight a key learning point changed the impact of my teaching on my students...

 

Editor's Note: I love how the author talks about your yoga mat as your mirror. It's one place where you can see if you're helping or hindering your personal growth. How do you react when you've achieved a new pose...or better yet, when you've fallen out of a pose? She goes onto describe the mat as always telling the truth. When looking honestly in the mirror (or during time on your yoga mat), notice ways in which you, not anyone else, can revolutionize your life!

I recently heard a story about a teacher who was instructing on laziness. He proceeded to tell his students that there are 2 kinds of lazy. One is the kind where a person just sits around doing nothing...

 

Editor's Note: This piece is short, but meaningful. In yoga one tries to be present and practice mindfulness. The author, Deborah Adele, tells an anecdote that leaves you reflecting on your own ability to be present.

 

Yoga


 

Editor's Note from Lexi Yoga: If you haven't already tried yoga, grab your mat, and get going! Not only will your outer body enjoy the physical benefits, but also your inner body too. Your organs and tissues will get nourished, as you twist, bend and stretch. Soon you'll be glowing from the inside and out. Check out the benefits of yoga in this video.

The human body is hard-wired in such a way that we have the innate capability to experience deep spiritual events, regardless of one’s religious or theological beliefs. However, the reality of life is that our bodies are constantly bombarded with toxins, chemicals and poisons, while our minds and psyches are constantly cluttered by media, distractions and group-think...

 

Editor's Note from Lexi Yoga: Our bodies are constantly surrounded by toxins and chemicals, while our minds are cluttered by the media and ongoing distractions. This is why it can be difficult to reach pure enlightenment, moments of clarity and a true spiritual experience. Here are six ways that you can prepare your body, mind and spirit for a real awakening.

1. Get your 8 hours of sleep every night and keep that sleep bank full this season! With sufficient rest, your immune system will stay strong and you will be less susceptible to the common cold. Without sufficient sleep, not only does your immune system get compromised, but your judgment, coordination, memory, and desire for exercise all decrease as well...

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.
