Editor's Note from Lexi Yoga: Depression is a common problem these days, and yoga is a great way to help improve your mood. The increase in physical effort, together with the controlled breathing and then period of relaxation, will help lower your heart rate and blood pressure, which in turn will reduce the stress response.

 

Yoga


by Sadhguru Vasudev

Meditation is a way of manufacturing what we call as ojas.  When we eat food, digestion manufactures the body in a certain way.  This is important for our physical exsistance, but the body by itself does not serve any purpose.  The body can be a means of great suffering.  The body is capable of pleasure also, but its limitations will be unfulfilling over a period of time...

 

Editor's Note from Lexi Yoga: Most people wonder what meditation really means, and how to truly experience it. Modern life has been shifting our energies and making us more unstable. Find out what meditation is really all about.

 

Yoga


by Ray Long, MD, FRCSC and Chris Macivor

Our last blog post used a video to illustrate shoulder kinematics in 3D and reviewed how to externally rotate the humerus to protect against impingement. This week we look at the scapular motion on the ribcage and the role of the lower third of the trapezius in drawing the shoulders away from the neck. This motion is called scapular depression, and it is frequently used in yoga, especially when the arms are overhead...

So we can see that the shoulder is a complex structure, with many factors contributing to movement, or potentially restricting it. It’s easier to understand a complex structure by breaking it down into its component parts and then reconstructing them into the whole. This gives a new understanding of their function. For the shoulder, we’ll begin by focusing on the skeletal anatomy of the glenohumeral joint...

Walking is a great way to stay in shape. You can walk almost anywhere and during any season. Spending time outside in the sunlight is one of the primary ways to regulate your circadian rhythm. The circadian rhythm governs your sleep-wake cycle...

 

Editor´s Note: In this short piece, the author notes that many Ayurvedic health practioners recommend beginning one's day with a brisk walk, followed by or preceeded by yoga asana (postures). Find out why sun salutations are suggested, as well as a description of how to practice them. Start your morning off right!

Yoga


by Liz Vartanian

Ok, maybe it’s not fun as in the way a beach vacation is fun or even dinner out with friends, but falling is fun in the way that learning a new trick or a skill is fun...

 

Editor's Note from Lexi Yoga: Why is it that we can fall so easily on the yoga mat, but off the mat, we have a hard time when we fail in something? It's all about courage, and facing new challenges is like food for the soul. Find out how falling in yoga can be a fun experience, and can push us forward in life, on or off the mat.

 

Yoga


 

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.

 

Yoga


by Kimaya Singh

With the recent spate of mass shootings, people have begun to ask what it will take to reduce violence, especially among kids or in places where they spend time. We know that violence does not just occur in random places sparked by uncertain things. It also takes place daily in schools or on street corners...

 

Editor's Note: Violence is a result of many things, including mental illness and feelings of loss, anger, loneliness, and powerlessness. Fortunately, these feelings are something that a yoga practice can address, especially when meditation is guided by someone who intentionally wants to empower and encourage students who are dealing with these types of emotions. The author states that, in addressing these negative feelings, yoga gives its practitioners, especially young people, an internal locus of control.

Cross-posted from WakingTimes.com

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. There is so much yoga wisdom that is slowly gaining a stronger understanding in today's society. This is the spiritual side to yoga...

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.
