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.

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.

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.

March 1, 2013. I've been teaching class on Friday nights for 10 years now. Hard to believe as the time has flown by. The reason I keep teaching on Friday's is because more than any other day it is a day of recapitulation to make way for a more easeful weekend...


Editor's Note: One of many things we learn in yoga is to practice "non-attachment". This means not being attached to something sad, happy, enjoyable, etc. Have and feel the emotions as they are happening, but don't take them with you or keep looking to have them again, for the same reasons, in the future. This includes having expectations...when you get attached to how you think something will turn out was supposed to be, it can affect you...instead practice non-attachment.

Yogic saints and sages as diverse as Matsyendranatha, Svatmarama, Patanjali, Sri Aurobindo, Sri Ramakrishna, and the more contemporary Paramahansa Yogananda, as well as others have long pointed to the effects of yoga on consciousness and biology. Is it possible that science is finally catching up to the memory of what we, as a collective, have long known to be true?...

 

Editor's Note from Lexi Yoga: Christina Sarich shares with us how the science of yoga has been proven to have positive effects on consciousness and biology countless times.

Yoga


by Virginia Iversen

Kirtan and swadhaya are both Bhakti Yoga practices. Bhakti Yoga originated thousands of years ago in ancient India...

 

Editor's Note: There are four traditional schools of Yoga, and these are: Jnana Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Karma Yoga, and Raja Yoga. While a Yogi or Yogini may focus exclusively on one of these approaches to Yoga, that is quite uncommon. For the vast majority of practitioners of Yoga, a blending of the four traditional types of Yoga is most appropriate. One follows his or her own predisposition in balancing these different forms of Yoga. This piece helps to better explain Bhakti Yoga.

Yoga


by Rachel Holmes

Although modern yoga practice primarily focuses on the physical practice of postures accompanied by meditation and breathing techniques, traditionally, yoga involved much more than that. For example, Patanjali writes in his ancient text, the Yoga Sutras, that yogic practices are comprised of eight limbs...

 

Editor's Note: Most modern yoga practitioners learn about the deeper ideas that comprise a traditional yogic practice fairly gradually. Most become familiar with certain principles but still only regularly practice asana (poses), pranayama (breathing), and limited forms of dharana (mantras) or dhyana (meditation). Clearly, restricting our practice to the poses themselves along with some combination of meditation and deep breathing leaves out a great deal of the internal elements of yoga training. To find out the deeper affects of practicing all 8 limbs of yoga, read on!

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.
