Yoga


by Jeff Martens

In Sanskrit, the word guru is composed of two root terms.  Gu means darkness, ru can mean its opposite, or light. When placed together the word Guru is that which takes us from darkness or gnorance to light and wisdom...

What is Yoga?
Yoga can be many things. It is first, an ancient philosophy originating 5,000 years ago in India. The word Yoga comes from the Sanskrit word meaning “union”.
Hatha Yoga means “yoga for health”, and is the physical aspect of the practice. It renews, invigorates and heals the body. Simply, yoga is a physical and psychological discipline seeking balance. In yoga we seek to balance the mind, body and spirit...

 

Yoga

We went to Cannon Beach last weekend, just for the day - the girls, me and my husband. What a gorgeous place. Reminded me a lot of Del Mar, California where my husband and I met about 13 years ago.

 

On our way home, my husband and I were talking about how we would really like to move back to the beach someday. We were discussing how much we really miss that lifestyle. Isabella pipes up from the back seat, "So if you liked living at the beach so much, how come you moved?" Ouch...reality....right in the kisser...

For some, meditation is a scary idea. I can't meditate. I cannot stop the thoughts from running through my mind. I am too easily distracted. I cannot sit still. I don't have time! What if the phone rings? What if the kids cry? Sound familiar? For just a moment, step back from all your preconceived notions of what meditation is and what it requires, and look at it with a new eye...

Ah, pratyahara: most unglamorous of Patañjali’s limbs of Yoga! Most abstemious ascetic anga! What do I do with you? I am an addict of form and feeling, in photography and painting and drawing, dance and Yoga...

 

Editor’s Note from Christina Seluzicki: Focus in and free yourself from the chaos of the external world just by closing your eyes is this essay on the power of pratyahara by Yogini Laura Miller.

 

Yoga


by Dana Layon

Everyone is doing it – this thing called yoga. Doctors are prescribing it as a natural therapy to reduce stress; physical therapists are recommending it to help patients rehabilitate; personal trainers are suggesting it as a complementary activity to cardio and weight training and schools are offering it as an elective in physical education courses – learning to balance the mind, body and spirit.



Simply put, yoga means “union” – uniting breath and movement, uniting mind and body – being present in every moment – not thinking about the next.

 

Yoga


by Donna Davidge,


The word awareness can be called consciousness. When we see someone doing something that we think is sad or bad it would behoove us to take notice that this person may not be aware of the thing they are doing to harm themselves or someone else. We would say they are unconscious. When I first started being involved deeply in yoga in the 1980’s, having dabbled in the 70’s, Yoga Journal was called The Journal of Conscious Living...

 

Yoga

As a young woman of twenty-five years, I wrote a romantic ode of praise to Indian femininity entitled “The Land Where God is a Woman.” I had just arrived in India and was as besotted with the country as only a mad passionate lover could be.

Forty years down the line, times have changed.

 

 

Yoga

Yogis believe in energy systems running throughout our bodies.  These energy centers, or "wheels", are called chakras.  Each chakra vibrates at a different frequency, creating different colors and sound tones.  In addition, each chakra co-exists with a major organ system of the body.  It is the output energy from the organs that creates the chakra...

 

 

Yoga


by Tarra J. Madore

There is something wonderful about a good sweat – especially when you are sweating from your yoga practice. Glistening from head to toe from a strong practice makes you feel like you have gotten a great workout and cleansed your system. With the increased interest in doing yoga in heated environments it is valuable to note that there is an actual difference between sweating as a by-product of using muscular energy and as a response to being in a heated environment...

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.
