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 Julia Cohn

Have you ever felt so completely lost in something that time seems to stand still?

For me, being at the beach, out in nature, and practicing yoga all give me that feeling of bliss, complete present moment awareness or Samadhi...

 

Editor's Note from Lexi Yoga: Being in a state of complete presence in the current moment can bring upon a state of Samadhi - a state of bliss. Find out how yoga can help get you there.

This is a translation of a Bengali song written by Swami Vivekananda. Reprinted here from his Complete Works 4: 431, the song gives an idea of the various stages of the mind leading to Samadhi...

 

Editor's Note from Christina Seluzicki: Sometimes it is important to spend a longer time with fewer words. Enjoy this translation of a Bengali song by Swami Vivekandana on the path to samadhi.

 

 

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.

Editor's Note: It's easy for Vata dosha to get out of balance in the cold and windy weather. This video from Banyan Botanicals reminds us how to ground and regain balance as we enter winter months. ~Christina

Yoga


by Donna Davidge


My personal yoga quest was initiated and carried by a search for the meaning of life’s questions, not for the deepest backbend or strongest handstand. I believe for many it becomes a search for answers. For others, it is nothing of the sort...

Yoga

 

 


by Nicole DeNardo

Yoga encourages us all to look within, to sharpen our focus inward while allowing thoughts and distractions from outside our body to float away. In this spirit, our teachers often remind us not to focus on the practice of our fellow students, but instead to be completely engrossed in our own experience. However, it's inevitable that most of us take in all of the stimuli around us, including the postures of other students, even using what we learn from watching others to help our own practice...

The holiday season can be both wonderful and challenging. The beauty and celebratory nature of the season makes it a great time of year to remember our blessings and to gather with friends and family. The holiday season can also be quite challenging for many people. The hectic schedule filled with parities and travelling can leave many of us weary and off-balance...

 

Editor´s Note from Brooke Nisbet: One way to combat stress during the holidays is to practice yoga balancing poses. Balancing poses can help keep you flexible, strong and grounded during the crazy holiday season. This article discusses the benefits of balancing poses and goes onto describe one of the poses for readers to practice.

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.
