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.

Could practicing yoga raise your resistance level and protect you from the flu? It seems as if yoga training is being credited with preventing everything these days...

 

Editor's Note: Could practicing yoga raise your resistance level and protect you from the flu? While there are many that will go out and get a flu shot, there are some who argue against it, and there are others who are finding alternative methods to go about fighting this now common illness. There are a number of yogic methods out there that can help in not only relieving flu symptoms, but preventing the flu as well.

 

Yoga


by Christian Leeby

Standing poses should be the foundation of all yoga practices because they safely prepare the body for the next poses to come. As well, the standing poses teach us how to practice all of the other types of poses...

 

Editor's Note from Lexi Yoga: Christian Leeby shares with us how the correct alignment for warrior l prepares us for backbends. Learning the correct way to practice bending backwards can help to avoid injuries, and protect your lower back from getting compressed.

 

Yoga


by Silvia Mordini

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.

 

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.

The city of New York and surrounding areas have had a couple of weeks of challenging times. We prepare again today for another storm. Fortunately, not another Hurricane, but rain, wind, maybe snow at a time when many are just getting settled back into their homes, many are still without power, and many without their homes that were destroyed by Hurricane Sandy...

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 Brooke Nisbet, MA, RYT

The first of the eight limbs of yoga are the yamas, which can be translated as the restraints or moral/ethical guidelines in which to live by. The yamas help us to understand that our goal on earth is to be compassionate, generous, honest and peaceful...


Editor´s Note: It's that time of year to make a new year's resolution. I'm not really keen on making resolutions every January, rather, when I notice that a new habit needs to be instilled, I work at adding it to my schemata whenever it's appropriate. It just so happens that this December I've realized that I really want to practice Satya more fully and with authentic intent. Satya is sanksrit for truth…

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.

Remember when you were a kid, and something bad happened at school or on the playground. All you wanted to do was run home to Mama! Well, maybe it’s time to do that again...

 

Editor's Note from Lexi Yoga: We all have a divine feminine energy inside us. Now is the time to embrace and awaken this feminine energy in order to develop and create new ideas, let go of our old ways, practice forgiveness and love with open arms.

 

Yoga


by Nona Jordan
Now, here is a confession. I practiced Yoga asana and pranayama for many years before I learned ANYTHING about the other limbs of Yoga. Frankly, it just didn’t speak to me. In fact, it sort of freaked me out. I began studying Buddhism, because the language appealed to me so much more than the Yogic language. THEN I found out that Budda was a Yogi before he was the Buddha...

 

Editor's Note: We all find a different path towards yoga. Some may stop at just the physical practice of doing asana (poses). Others may feel they most resonate with pranayama (breath focus). Others may dive fully into the 8 Limbs of Yoga. The path to get to any of these areas of yoga is different for everyone, especially if you're raised in the west. This piece gives a realistic and honest description of the author's path to the 8 Limbs of Yoga. Read on yogis!

 

Yoga


by Deborah Adele, MA

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.

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.
