by Erich Schiffmann

You imagine a spinning top. Stillness is like a perfectly centered top, spinning so fast it appears motionless. It appears this way not because it isn't moving, but because it's spinning at full speed. Stillness is not the absence or negation of energy, life, or movement. Stillness is dynamic...


Editor's Note: This is a nice reminder that getting still and quiet may be difficult, but is so worth while. The author suggests the finding that calm, quiet place within (practicing pratyahara..withdrawing of the 5 senses) will help you find your own truth, the true you. And once you've found this space, it is utterly blissful.

 

Yoga


by Claire Austen

Concentration is the sixth limb of Pantajali’s eight limbs of yoga. Pantanjali’s sutra’s define concentration as,

III.1 “When the attention of the mind-stuff is directed in a single stream to a chosen field without being dissipated and thus distracted – that is concentration.”...

 

Editor's Note from Lexi Yoga: The practice of yoga is an act of moving meditation. According to Pantajali's eight limbs of yoga, concentration is the sixth limb, which can be achieved through focusing on breath and movement in your yoga practice.

I love Headstand. In fact, I used to hang out in Headstand just about every day. The more I studied yoga therapy and worked with clients, the more I realized that the majority of the population is unfit to do Headstand -- and yes, I'm included in the majority...

Yoga


by Dr. Paul Jerard, E-RYT 500

Can Yoga make miracles happen? Can we make miracles happen? How often do you hear people hope or wish for a miracle?...

 

Editor's Note: The author encourages self reflection at one's own yoga practice. When you look beyond the asanas (poses) and at how you really conduct your life, you have the option to notice the good you're doing. The positivity that's all around you and the deeper awareness of joy is brought about by regular yoga practice as well. The author suggests that yoga is a system, which allows one to train the mind for those times, when we are challenged by life’s struggles. Read on to learn more!

 

Yoga


by Andrea Marcum

That period of my life when I first started yoga was a neurotic quest for more, more, more. Nothing was ever enough: no workout, no amount of success, no expression of love, nothing. I managed to turn everything into a letdown...

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!

Editor's Note: Have you been in a yoga class and you're suddenly practicing Breath of Fire? You're not sure how to do it, when to breath, what your stomach should be doing, etc. If you're new to Kapalabhati Breathing (or Skull Shining Breath), then this intro video will help.

 

Yoga


by Melina Meza, BS Nutrition, 500-RYT

Have you ever heard the word ama before? It’s an important word in the Ayurvedic system to describe the toxic waste, sticky gooey sludge that builds up in the channels of the body when your digestive fire (agni) becomes weak due to overeating, improper food combining, too many cold liquids mixed with your meals, stress, or a compromised immune system...

 

Editor's Note from Lexi Yoga: According to Ayurvedic systems, most of us carry toxic build up in our bodies. This is called Ama - which is when the digestive fire (agni) becomes weak, due to our lifestyle of unhealthy eating and stress. Melina Meza shares with us the symptoms of Ama and ways to clean out your body for spring time.

 

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


by Zelinda Yanez, RYT

In our society, the common belief is that we ARE our bodies. If your body doesn't measure up to the current standard of beauty, then YOU are not good enough. You might be judged as not beautiful, not handsome, not smart, not cool, not worthy...

 

Editor´s Note: Body image may seem like a passe idea. It's talked about a lot, over and over. I'd say this is because it remains an issue throughout all generations. The author of this piece discusses how practicing yoga can help you make the mind-body-spirit connection that will allow you to surpass the ego filled world of body shape and size.

Cross-posted from WakingTimes.com

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.

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.
