Editor's Note from Brooke Nisbet: Chaturanga is practiced in so many yoga classes, over and over. It's critical to learn proper alignment in this pose in order to save your shoulders from injury. Sadie breaks it down with a few tips.

Editor´s Note: Chaturanga (or lowering down from high plank) is done over and over in many yoga classes. This makes it very important to permform chaturanga correctly. Otherwise, you can begin to cause injury and pain to your shoulders, hips and low back. Please watch to learn more about proper alignment.

The breath – a simple action often forgotten throughout the day – is a simple way to improve your overall health, all of the body’s functions, and your emotional outlook...

 

Editor's Note from Lexi Yoga: We don't normally pay any attention to our breath, as the actual process of breathing happens naturally. During a yoga practice we focus our attention on our inhalations and exhalations, which improves the mind and body connection, and increases our awareness. Here are three yoga breathing techniques that have been developed by yoga masters to strengthen our respiratory systems and improve our health.

 

Yoga

 


by Ray Long, MD, FRCSC and Chris Macivor

In this post we explore the relationship between the tensor fascia lata (TFL) and the gluteus maximus. In addition I add a cue for engaging the adductor magnus as a synergist of the gluteus maximus. Knowledge of these relationships can be used to refine and stabilize postures with a lunge component, such as Warrior II...

 

 

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 SÅ«tras of Patañjali...

 

 

Yoga


by Ally Hamilton

There is usually a reason people come to the mat. I started practicing my senior year at Columbia University when I found myself at a real crossroads in my life. Without going into too much personal detail, a series of events forced me to look carefully at the choices, the big choices, I had been making...

 

Editor's Note from Brooke Nisbet: Why, where and how did you start practicing yoga? We all have a different reason, pace and place. But, if you've stuck with it, it's likely because of the love of the practice and the personal growth that yoga brings, not because it's on the workout "To Do" list. The author (who is now a yoga instructor and studio owner) talks about her journey into the yogic life and how it has changed her.

by Melina Meza, BSN, 500-RYT

Depending on where you live, you may think summer is never long enough (like in the Pacific Northwest), or that it’s always too long (like in the South). Regardless of your geographical location, I believe summer is the one and only season where Westerners live at the appropriate pace, one that is in sync with Nature...

 

Editor's Note from Lexi Yoga: Most people don't drink enough water on a daily basis, and become dehydrated, stiff and constipated. Even your social situations can become "dry" and lack that juiciness and excitement that we all long for. Nutritionist Melina Meza shares with us the importance of water from an Ayurvedic perspective.

 

Yoga


by Donna Davidge

To me, Yoga and Psychology are in many ways closely related and in other ways inherently different. My teacher, Yogi Bhajan, is an Indian man/yoga master who holds a PhD in Psychology. What is the reason for this? Because yoga is very much about the workings of the mind...

 

 

 

Yoga


by Angela Kukhahn

Yoga and me are in a long-term relationship, one that I am continually finding new reasons to fall in love with it over, and over and over! It’s spicy...

 

Editor's Note from Lexi Yoga: This is a lovely article comparing yoga to a long term relationship. There are days of frustration, and days of pure joy. That's the power of love.

 

Yoga


by Felice Rhiannon

Yoga…the word evokes exotic scenes from India, sweaty sticky mats, pretzel poses and fiery breath practices. In truth, yoga is a path to realizing your self, to unveiling the truth that already exists within you.

So what does that have to do with yoga postures and yoga classes? Can we find self-realization in a class at the local gym? Maybe. But you may need some help...

 

Yoga


by Elizabeth Vartanian

Okay, maybe that’s a little dramatic or just a shout out to our yogi brethren past that used to practice ALONE in a cave, either way the point to take away here is that yoga can be done ANYWHERE so there is no reason you HAVE to go to the studio! You can’t browse the inner-webs without coming across a photograph of someone doing yoga at top a mountain, at the beach, or on the street (apparently, the streets of NYC are popular these days), why is it then that we are so fixated on being in the yoga studio?...

 

Editor´s Note from Lexi Yoga: Yoga can be practiced anywhere other than a yoga studio. Elizabeth Vartanian shares with us some reasons why you don't need to spend money on yoga classes, and indulge in self taught yoga.

Holy Wars are erupting all over America! People are dying for their metaphors of the eternal, Joseph Campbell would say. Alternately, let’s introduce mythology and science in public school classrooms to discuss yoga science, hear some great world mythology and educate our youth  in reason, empiricism and enlightenment...

 

Editor´s Note from Brooke Nisbet: This is an interesting piece that makes a case for having yoga in public schools. It discusses the fears many may have if they view yoga as religion, for example. The author assures us that it's not only NOT a religion, but in fact science and therefore, she believes has a true home in the public schools.

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.
