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.

 

Yoga


by Peg Mulqueen, RYT

There’s been a lot of buzz here in DC (maybe elsewhere too?) about the Mysore way of practicing Ashtanga yoga.

It took me 8 years before I took my first Ashtanga class – and another year before I would find the courage to Mysore with the big dogs because I thought Ashtanga was scary and the Mysore-way was just for people who knew what they were doing...

 

Editor's Note from Brooke Nisbet: What IS Mysore Yoga anyway? Peg Mulqueen, Ahstanga Yoga Teacher, gives us some answers and clarifications on what it is, what to expect if you attend and ideas on how to proceed. This is a clear, simple and short resource that gives you a concise idea about what Mysore is.

 

Yoga


by Dana Layon

I love yoga – all kinds of yoga. Why? Because according to my yoga instructor, yoga postures were originally created to bring our physical body to a state of enlightenment through movement and breath. And guess what? It does.

 

I practice all styles of yoga: Anusara, Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Hot Flow, Iyengar, Bikram. They all offer so much. However, I have never been more challenged as I am in a Bikram class.

Meditation is so incredibly simple…that it may seem difficult. But don’t let the concept scare you – it’s just as simple as it sounds. Try these 11 steps for 5 minutes per day, EVERYDAY...

 

Editor's Note from Lexi Yoga: Claire Austen will take you through a meditation in 11 simple steps. Let yourself be taken away, and trust the journey and the process. Allow yourself to come out with a new and different concept.

 

Yoga


by Leza Lowitz

I first studied Tibetan Buddhism in college decades ago, inspired (and intimidated) by the lengthy vows (18 root and 46 secondary) that Mahayana disciples took to release themselves from the cycles of karma (samsara) and dedicate their lives to attaining enlightenment (nirvana) so that they could help others on the Bodhisattva path...

 

Editor's Note: For many yoga practitioners, yoga goes well beyond the 6'x2' mat of a 6:00pm -7:30pm Tuesday night yoga class. The author of this article has an amazing and interesting history with yoga. As you get to know her (she's an instructor, book author and yoga studio owner in Tokyo, Japan), you will see what a wonderful journey she's embarked upon thus far. Her journey is inspirational, encouraging and uplifting. In this piece, she discusses finding the ancient Mahayana Buddhism from the Lotus Sutra as a road map for her life. "These 'Six Perfections' are innate human qualities that form a blueprint for living a virtuous life and transcending one’s karma."

Garudasana, or Eagle Pose, has become my new favorite expression. Not because of the physical nature of the pose, but rather the story behind it which is beautifully described in this months copy of Yoga Journal (which I blogged about a few days ago -- still happy that there is a man on the cover this time!) Here is a brief synopsis of the article...

 

Yoga

AcroYoga is a fusion practice combining the lineages of Yoga, Acrobatics, and Thai Massage. By design, AcroYoga invites people from all walks of life to come together and find strength, support, and greater ease with the help of partners; and the practice is acclaimed for its intelligent structure and profound impact. The beauty of partnered practice is that it offers a source for safe connection, sustained by trust, communication and playfulness...

Editor´s Note from Brooke Nisbet: Do you sit a lot at work or during your day? This 8 minute flow can help stretch the muscles that get shorter and shorter then more you sit. This is a nice, quick, intermediate flow sequence that opens the hips and inner groin muscles, as well as stretching the psoas and quadriceps muscles.

 

Yoga


by Rachel Holmes

Although modern yoga practice primarily focuses on the physical practice of postures accompanied by meditation and breathing techniques, traditionally, yoga involved much more than that. For example, Patanjali writes in his ancient text, the Yoga Sutras, that yogic practices are comprised of eight limbs...

 

Editor's Note: Most modern yoga practitioners learn about the deeper ideas that comprise a traditional yogic practice fairly gradually. Most become familiar with certain principles but still only regularly practice asana (poses), pranayama (breathing), and limited forms of dharana (mantras) or dhyana (meditation). Clearly, restricting our practice to the poses themselves along with some combination of meditation and deep breathing leaves out a great deal of the internal elements of yoga training. To find out the deeper affects of practicing all 8 limbs of yoga, read on!

 

Yoga


by Melina Meza, BS Nutrition, 500-RYT

I’m quite fond of the old yogic saying, “it’s never too late, or too early, to consider sequencing your life today for a healthier tomorrow.” Because I really believe it to be true.

Everyday you get opportunity to restate your intentions and purpose, which helps align your prana so you accomplish your goals...

 

Editor's Note from Lexi Yoga: Melina Meza shares with us an Ayurvedic perspective on how to stay balanced and stabilize your earth element before approaching the summer season. Your sleeping patterns, overuse of your senses and improper eating can all affect your well-being.

“Concentration is taking your mind off many things and putting it on one thing at a time.” – Ananda Sangha

Imagine what you could do if you could concentrate better. You could use your time more efficiently...

 

Editor's Note from Lexi Yoga: Many people feel distracted, and can't really concentrate on the current moment. Everything is so fast paced, and we are so over-stimulated with information in our hands... Yoga is a great way to slow down our breath, and focus on the present moment.

“We must begin to understand that a revolution entails not only the willingness to lay our lives on the firing line and get killed. In some ways, this is an easy commitment to make. To die for the revolution is a one-shot deal; to live for the revolution means taking on the more difficult commitment of changing our day-to-day patterns...” – Francis Beal

 

Editor's Note from Lexi Yoga: Jennifer shares with us her journey of personal revolution and how making such a dramatic change in your life means to reshuffle your priorities and start taking care of yourself.

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.
