by Ramesh Bjonnes
Some contemporary yogis in America claim that women were not allowed to practice yoga until about 50 years ago. I think that’s a bunch of yogi baloney.


Editor's Note: Even though more women are dong yoga than men, many men are credited with the history, origins and mastery of yoga. Ramesh gives insightful history that was new and compelling for me to discover- enjoy! I certainly did. ~Donna


by Nona Jordan

I like to encourage everyone to pursue a home practice, be it Meditation, Yoga, Tai Chi – really, whatever calls to you.  It can be really difficult to make time for a home practice, but, I think an even bigger barrier is the “What-do-I-do-now-that-my-mat-is-rolled-out” barrier.  Even after practicing Yoga for as long as I have, for crying out loud, I have days where I just want to follow a practice designed by someone else!

 

 

 

 

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?

Editor's Note: Sitting in a chair all day can tighten your hips. Kino shows us an easy switch of position that will help keep your hips open and your core muscles strong. She shows twotypes of sitting crossed legged and explains why they are actually good for your hips. Happy Hips!

 

Yoga


by Valerie Goodman

Some of us have actually met each other in person; however, the majority of us have simply shared our energies in the cyber space of the internet. My passion is yoga… not just the physical aspect of it, but the true purpose of it… to unite. With the practice of yoga, one’s awareness of Self emerges...

from Ed and Deb Shapiro

We all know yoga has hit the U.S. big time as it pops up on T.V. ads and magazines everywhere, but it was still an unknown entity in the west when Ed trained in the late 1960s at the Bihar School of Yoga in India and became a Swami. Now yoga is a household name and most people have tried it at least once. And yet it is essentially very misunderstood...

 

 

Yoga


by Lisa Bradford

As we age, our bodies go through numerous changes. Senior citizens often face health challenges such as arthritis, which affects the joints and decreases flexibility...

 

Editor's Note: A great activity for seniors is yoga training. The gentle postures (asanas) and slow, centered movements of Hatha Yoga are the perfect way to loosen tight joints and relieve pain. Low impact exercise (and the right type of exercises) is crucial for staying healthy – not just physically but mentally and emotionally as well.

 

Yoga


by Deborah Adele, MA

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


by Peg Mulqueen, RYT

There’s been a lot of buzz here in DC (maybe elsewhere too?) about the Mysore way of practicing Ashtanga yoga.

It took me 8 years before I took my first Ashtanga class – and another year before I would find the courage to Mysore with the big dogs because I thought Ashtanga was scary and the Mysore-way was just for people who knew what they were doing...

 

Editor's Note from Brooke Nisbet: What IS Mysore Yoga anyway? Peg Mulqueen, Ahstanga Yoga Teacher, gives us some answers and clarifications on what it is, what to expect if you attend and ideas on how to proceed. This is a clear, simple and short resource that gives you a concise idea about what Mysore is.

 

Yoga


by Dana Layon

I love yoga – all kinds of yoga. Why? Because according to my yoga instructor, yoga postures were originally created to bring our physical body to a state of enlightenment through movement and breath. And guess what? It does.

 

I practice all styles of yoga: Anusara, Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Hot Flow, Iyengar, Bikram. They all offer so much. However, I have never been more challenged as I am in a Bikram class.

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.
