Yoga mat for sale. Used once...


Editor's Note from Vasilena Toneva: This is a humorous Craig's List Ad for a Yoga Mat for Sale. Note: Contains graphic language and thoughts about why Bikram yoga is not for everyone. Definitely read at your own risk, especially if you are going to your first hot yoga class anytime soon!




Editor's Note from Vasilena Toneva: A simple technique to calm down and release stress. This is something you may do in a yoga class, but it can be very useful on a day to day basis, even if you're not a yogi.



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...

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.





Editor's Note from Vasilena TonevaBeautiful fusion of the presence of yoga and the movement of dance, a fusion popularized by the flowing Yogini, Shiva Rea. Meditative. Be careful, you might enter a trance just watching this video, even without trying out the movements!


by Laura Marjorie Miller

I am now a ghost-in-training. I got laid off a couple of weeks ago, from a university where I’ve worked for eleven years.

Editor's Note from Christina Seluzicki: Life has a way of throwing change at us when we least expect it! Laura Miller charts her own experience facing the fear that comes with unexpected change and shows us that Yoga has great tools for helping us to see that it's all a matter of perspective...

The word therapy implies that there is a need to solve a problem, or remedy some imbalance, or take away some disease or pain. Our general thoughts around getting therapy whether it be massage therapy, physical therapy, or talk therapy is that when we come out on the other end we are "better" in some way. Which implies that we were cracked, broken, or imbalanced beforehand...


Editor's Note from Vasilena Toneva: Thoughts about how Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy can aid people through the various transitions in life.




Editor's Note from Vasilena Toneva: Yoga for pregnancy-exercises to increase flexibility in the pelvis and strengthen all the muscles. Great to share with your favorite expecting mamas.

From Recovering Yogi

Back when I started yoga, most people didn’t know what it was. My teacher looked like she’d stepped out of the pages of Yoga the Iyengar Way, with her waist-length plait, blue unitard, and Indian accent. Asmita was her name. We did these funny breathing exercises that made my 12-year-old self giggle, and we practised, simply, on towels...

Editor's Note from Vasilena Toneva: A personal journey through the recent evolution of yoga in the West.




Editor's Note from Nicole Spigner: Asanas that promote stability, and are actually a practice of stability, include those standing postures which bring the hips-center of gravity low and keep both feet strongly on the ground.  Utthita Parsvakonasana, or Extended Side Angle Posture, is one such posture and is perfect for practicing in this season of Vata, our Fall.  In this video, John Shumacher, a certified advanced Iyengar yoga teacher, takes us step by step through Utthita Parsvakonasana, with wonderful attention to detail and places we can adjust along the way.  Practicing Utthita Parsvakonasana will increase strength, generates some warmth, promotes stability, and quiets the increased movement of windy, cool Vata.




Editor's Note from Nicole Spigner: In is officially Fall, and the weather is getting cooler.  In this video, Kavita Maharaj from teaches us how to do practice Kapalabhati Pranayama, Shining Skull or Skull Shining Breath.  This breathing exercise tones the abdomen (think about pulling the abdomen in at the belly button), brings warmth to the body, increases metabolism, and is a perfect practice as we move into the cooler months and shorter days.

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.
