PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: You will NOT be happy when you lose 10 pounds, or have a different job or a drive better car, when you meet the “right” person, or when “things calm down”. You will not be happy when your biceps or bank account or boobs are bigger, or when your waistline is smaller...

 

Editor's Note: There is more to yoga than asana (poses). Many believe it's just a physical workout that's good for your body. Yoga is so much more. Part of the yoga practice is working hard to follow the yamas (moral codes) and niyamas (observances). One of the yamas to practice is non-attachment. Not being attached to outcomes, moments, sad times, happiness, expectations and so on. Living in the present moment and the now and not getting bogged down on how you wish things were or how you'd like them to stay. The author of this piece does a nice job of providing real life examples of this. Enjoy!

Yoga


by Virginia Iversen

Kirtan and swadhaya are both Bhakti Yoga practices. Bhakti Yoga originated thousands of years ago in ancient India...

 

Editor's Note: There are four traditional schools of Yoga, and these are: Jnana Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Karma Yoga, and Raja Yoga. While a Yogi or Yogini may focus exclusively on one of these approaches to Yoga, that is quite uncommon. For the vast majority of practitioners of Yoga, a blending of the four traditional types of Yoga is most appropriate. One follows his or her own predisposition in balancing these different forms of Yoga. This piece helps to better explain Bhakti Yoga.

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!

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 Tobye Hillier

Yoga is about balance; mind, body and spirit being yoked together. Although the postures are great for fitness and finding physical balance as well as mental and emotional well-being, there are other ways to find balance in our lives that will help us to become happier. Balance between our work and play is very important...

 

 

Yoga


by Gopi Rao

People practice Yogic techniques for many different reasons. Some of us do it to get into or stay in shape, others do it to help decrease stress, and others do it as a way to challenge themselves. There really is no right or wrong reason to practice. One person practices at home with videos, while another practices in a hot studio full of sweating bodies in bathing suits and another decides to become a Yoga instructor...

 

Editor´s Note: This article begins with benefits of yoga and some discussion about how yoga is morphing in this century. The author goes onto to explain that taking a yoga teacher training can be beneficial, even if you don't plan to teach yoga. But, at the end of the day, if you do take a yoga teacher training with the intention of teaching yoga….you will have to decide your path….teaching with yoga history in mind, or just for fitness benefits.

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.
