To experience a more intimate understanding of the creative process, at the beginning of 2012 I embarked on a project called Photo of the Day. For this, I committed to taking one photograph each day for 365 days and sharing them with my Facebook community...

 

Editor's Note from Lexi Yoga: Melina Meza embarked on a photo of the day project starting back in January 2012. She committed to taking one photo every day for one full year. Taking on a daily creative ritual can really change your life in a positive way.

 

Yoga


 

by Elizabeth Morris

Tense? Stressed? Super-stressed? Burning out? Burnt out? Chronic Fatigue Syndrome? There are very few people who can honestly say that none of these descriptions apply to them. Restorative Yoga is finding its way into many Yoga classes in response to the needs of our stressful time. We live stressed lives and our body systems were not designed to live in that state permanently.

Concentration is the sixth limb of Pantajali’s eight limbs of yoga. Pantanjali’s sutra’s define concentration as,

III.1 “When the attention of the mind-stuff is directed in a single stream to a chosen field without being dissipated and thus distracted – that is concentration.”...

 

Editor's Note from Lexi Yoga: The practice of yoga is an act of moving meditation. According to Pantajali's eight limbs of yoga, concentration is the sixth limb, which can be achieved through focusing on breath and movement in your yoga practice.

Editor's Note: Many people have hyper-extended elbows and that's not the best for using the body long term. Check out this video to understand how to avoid hyperextension in the elbows while doing yoga.

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.

Over the last few decades, yoga has become quite popular, even trendy, outside of the Eastern Buddhist and Hindu cultures. For example, Harris Interactive Service Bureau reported in February 2012 that 16.5 million US adults practice yoga...

 

Editor´s Note: Most yogis will claim that yoga has many benefits, perhaps not as clearly visible at first, such as improved circulation, digestion and elimination, lowered stress and tension, improved concentration, and on, and on. All that to say, a recently published review in the journal Frontiers in Psychiatry has revealed that a regular yoga practice can have positive effects on various mental health disorders, such as depression and sleep complaints, as well as improve symptoms of illnesses such as schizophrenia and ADHD. Read on to find out more!

Editor's Note: Much fuss has been made about the lack of representation for men in the yoga community and on the covers of certain national yoga magazines, but men are certainly making strides in yoga. This video chronicles one man's journey with ex-pro-wrestler turned yogi Diamond Dallas Page's "Yoga for Real Guys" program. His jaw-dropping evolution shows how anyone can transform their body. At first you’ll see that he was unable to walk without the aid of canes. By the end of the video, he’s doing headstands and RUNNING. Unbelievable! Yoga truly is amazing!

This holiday season, enlarge your experience of both giving and receiving in your most meaningful relationships by cultivating the same mindful attention you practice on your yoga mat.  There is no gift you could offer that will more profoundly enhance the emotional connections in your life than your focused attention, which explains why most people cannot distinguish between the experience of being deeply listened to with being deeply loved...

 

Editor's Note from Lexi Yoga: Instead of focusing on finding the right presents to give for the holidays, try to focus your attention on being present, and enjoying the moments as a positive experience. We sometimes forget the importance of the receiving end, and how to be grateful to receive love. Here are some tips on how to make this holiday season more love focused.

 

Yoga

When I was a young girl I loved to read etiquette books. Really. I remember reading once that the purpose of etiquette is not to make judgements about people and their behavior, but rather to provide a set of guidelines so that everyone feels comfortable and confident that they know how to behave in any situation...

 

Editor's Note: If you're new to yoga or even just settling into a new community and attending your first yoga class at a new studio, you may have discomfort and uncertainty about what to expect and what to do. The author helps alleviete your worries by clarifying what is expected of you as a practitioner, and what you can expect from her studio in Texas (which will apply to most yoga studios nationwide).

When the mind isn’t functioning properly, performing even the simplest task is a difficult proposition. The problem of confused thinking is one that only seems to get worse as time passes...

 

Editor's Note: Does your mind chatter away incessantly? Most likely, it does. One way to quiet the mind and find deeper, richer peace and clarity is through meditation. Dhyana, which is sanskrit for meditation, is one of the 8 limbs of yoga. Yoga itself is practiced to actually prepare you for meditation. It gets all the fidgets and stiffness out of the body, so that you can sit quietly, for a very long time in deep dhyana…with the ultimate goal of samadhi (enlightenment). Read more to find out how meditation can quiet the monkey mind!

 

Yoga


by Jeni James

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


 

Editor´s Note: Yoga has many purposes. Not only creating supple muscles or helping you stay grounded, but sending out energy and love to others. In many yoga classes, the yoga teacher may ask you to set an intention…that's similiar to what is being depicted in this yoga sequence. Sean Corn demonstrates the graceful and athletic movements that channel energy and love to a person or culture.

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.
