    Who ultimately knows why we do the things we do? Inspiration strikes, a little spark, and something impels us to move forward in a very real way. If what we’ve been struck by is yoga, moving forward often involves a yoga teacher training. We decide to pass on the inspiration so generously given by our own teachers, giving freely to other what we have been so thankful to experience. I’ve considered taking a teacher training several times since I first practiced yoga at age 15. I haven’t done it yet, but I will. It’s on the list. Even though I’m The post 11 tips for those considering…

    AHIMSA -Yoga Sutra Chapter 2 Verse 35 is one of the five Yamas, which are guidelines for how we can live in harmony with others. A traditional translation of Ahimsa means, “Do not kill or harm other people.” I’ve outlined here a more modern interpretation for today’s urban yogi. Lovingkindness Ahimsa means that when connected to our heart we naturally share lovingkindness. Love is active and it is never too late to offer healing through loving thoughts and kind actions towards yourself and others. Compassion / Connection / Respect In fact, we have an infinite abundance of compassion…

    I just stepped away from my desk, the to do list, the inbox, and a number of other nameless distractions vying for my attention to take a slow walk around my backyard. For once, my walk wasn't goal-oriented. I wasn't trying to get from point A to point B. I wasn't walking for exercise. I wasn't rushing. I was merely walking at a leisurely pace. Slow, thoughtful steps. Just when my brain was wanting to speed things up, tackle this task or another task, worry about this deadline or that deadline, I forced my body into slowness.  The first time I did this on my yoga mat was quite the…

    By nature, our wrists are particularly prone to injury. Learn how to protect them in your practice. If your yoga practice involves moving into and out of Downward-Facing Dog Pose and Chaturanga Dandasana, wrist pain may be a current or looming problem. 
I teach workshops internationally to teachers and students who are serious about improving their practices, and about 25 percent of my students admit to wrist pain during vinyasa. And when you explore the anatomy of the wrists, it’s easy to see 
how these vulnerable structures might easily suffer from improper weight transfer and…

There's a little too much sweat and ego there for my liking. I know a group of folks who love Bikram. Swear by it. Claim it's changed their lives and transformed their bodies and souls. When I visited with them, they wanted me to come to a class. Normally, I'm a try anything once (and withhold judgment until experiencing it for myself) kind of gal, but I flatly said, "I refuse to go to a Bikram class.

I would sit in crowded places just watching people's gait (I still do this all the time). I tried all kinds of modalities including Rolfing, Alexander Technique, Feldenkrais. Yep. Total. Geek.  The Pelvic region became one of particular interest for me. So much happens in that area and imbalances there can cause so many issues in all other parts of the body. Yep, there's a lot happening in the pelvis and a lot of issues can arise from there. Whenever I've got something…

I know how to handle this type of thing. After all, you don't live in this world for a little over four decades without learning a thing or two.  You've gotta prime the pump!

    Family yoga should be part of family life. It creates healthy playtime for adults and kids where everyone is on the same level (the floor) and there’s lots of laughter as you roll about and try new things. The goal is fun. Healthy Family Activities Create Healthy Bonds So when I was invited to speak at the Healthy Kids Virtual Summit, I chose the topic of Happy Family Yoga because I’ve seen the value yoga brings to a family.  It contributes to both physical and mental health.  It strengthens bonds.

I’m not sure if its the supportive group dynamics where everyone has cleared their calendar to gather together to achieve a common goal.

    Most of us are familiar with a Standard Sun Salutation A or B. However, there are many more creative variations of sun salutations that work the body and nervous system in a holistic manner.  Shiva Rea, a master Vinyasa Flow teacher, teaches Mandala Namaskar variations which work in a circular manner around the yoga mat. This encourages us to step out of our set back and forth linear patterns and embrace a more natural, cyclical way of life.  It can be uncomfortable and disconcerting when we first start – which way am I moving now? – and that’s exactly what we want.

  • Simple Cleansing Techniques for Spring

    Kathleen Bryant
    26 Mar 2015 | 5:30 am
    After winter’s holiday indulgences and kapha-aggravating weather, spring is an ideal time for a fresh start. But forget what you’ve heard about celebrity fads and crazy crash diets. From the perspective of yoga and Ayurveda, the primary purpose of cleansing isn’t to lose weight or detox, it’s to help us return to a natural state of balance or sattva. Whether you decide on a simple tune-up or an all-out spring ... Continue reading "Simple Cleansing Techniques for Spring" on Yoga Basics.com
  • Meditation: From Dharana into Dhyana

    Megan de Matteo
    24 Mar 2015 | 5:30 am
    As many who have tried meditation probably know, the journey to stillness requires a lot of patience. The scriptures of yoga describe a process to meditation that looks, on paper, to be rather linear. For example, the eight limbs of yoga outline a step-by-step guide to reaching enlightenment in a way that almost reads as easy. But how many times have you sat down to meditate only to observe a ...

    Let’s face it: Technology has long been a part of yoga. Though once practiced by loincloth-clad men seeking spiritual enlightenment, this ancient practice has integrated technology at almost every turn. From the first television broadcasts airing yoga instruction from within darkened studios to the newer ubiquitous yoga videos available online, yoga has evolved with the changing technologies of modern times. By the millions, yogis have embraced specifically designed practice rooms ... Continue reading "The Robotic Evolution of Yoga" on Yoga Basics.com

Scientists say we can change our brain through meditation, and studies have shown that yoga is beneficial for back pain, insomnia and a host of other ailments. Plus, anyone who has a regular yoga practice will tell you that yoga helps them to destress, to feel healthier and even happier.

    22 Mar 2015 | 12:34 pm
    Retreat alumna Deirdre is climbing a mountain for a cause. A BIG mountain. I asked her to be a guest blogger to tell you about it. As she gears up for this big event, we are gearing up for our 2015 retreat season, which as always kicks off with the Cowgirls vs. Cancer retreat. Through C vs C, we are proud to be sponsoring Deirdre to come train with us in Big Sky before she hits Kilimanjaro, on our late July Yoga & Advanced Hiking retreat (only ONE spot left if you'd like to join us!).Trekking up a mountain such as Kilimanjaro seems like a novel idea. It provides metaphor.

  • Ask the Cowgirl Yogini: How can I start meditating?

    14 Mar 2015 | 2:33 pm
    It seems fitting to follow up a post on Montana Malas with my answer to the question, How can I start meditating? AND, to report in that it's only March and I am moving right along with one of my New Year's Resolutions: Meditate More.Many people are intimidated by meditation and are more drawn to the physical yoga practice. Let’s face it, we don’t value sitting still in our culture. But you don’t have to sit still for long periods of time in a perfect lotus pose in order to meditate. I teach a meditation practice that emphasizes the cumulative benefits of being able to change how you…
  • Montana Mala Making

    7 Mar 2015 | 7:53 am
    Guest post by Caitlin K., who teaches with me on our B-LUXE Cowgirl Yoga retreats and leads a Montana Mala Making workshop! Mala making has become my favorite meditation. Setting up a quiet space with my beads, an intention and a chant takes me immediately to my happy place. Mala means “garland” in Sanskrit. Mala beads, also known as “prayer beads”, traditionally consist of 108 beads or stones strung together and finished with a tassel or a charm, and are used for keeping count as the user chants, or mentally repeats a mantra during meditation. A mala can be as simple or as…

Grab a glass of vino and enjoy the slide show, 10 minutes flies by.We still have a few spots left on this September's Cowgirl Yogatography retreat. Would love to have you join us. Yeehaw & Namaste.
  • Winter Wonderland: an opportunity for Wellness

    Our Winter Wonderland and Wellness retreat last weekend had a little bit of everything: horses (plus an action-packed equine jailbreak with a happy ending, thanks to the combined round up skills of everyone present), Cowgirl Yogatography, the usual amazing food, yoga and yoga philosophy, tons of tea. But the most wonderful of all was waking up to the return of winter on Saturday, with a fresh blanket of white. It felt like Christmas. I know the East coast is tired of the white stuff...but it never fails to take my breath away.Another highlight for me was presenting with The Tea Spot's founder…

  • Watering the Seeds of Enlightenment

    William Ferro
    28 Mar 2015 | 2:28 pm
    Partisan political wrangling, hegemonic religious claims, and exclusive ideologies of all kinds are often invitations to psychic or even physical violence. Based often on faulty reasoning and misperceptions, their exclusivity and the tribalism this encourages tend to foster “us versus them” thinking; sometimes this takes extreme and virulent forms. The yoga mat, the meditation cushion, and the breathing room are places of refuge where the practitioner can water the seeds of enlightenment, quietly decline invitations to strife, and open a path for her best self to put in an appearance.

    I woke up last Thursday with soreness behind my knee going up into the back of my thigh. I assumed it had to do with a ligament in my knee that I had torn several years ago. But as I went about my day, I realized that it was my hamstring. I had strained it. I am not sure what happened. It could’ve been in yoga or during a martial arts class. It took me by surprise. My hamstrings are very flexible so I don’t pay much attention to them. But obviously I should! I am sure during yoga class you have heard “find your edge” or “breathe into your edge.” Sounds like cool advice but…

    She rises high above the din Of frenzied voices, shouting slurs. She is an island to herself; Nobility, a tranquil sense, Arising from impermanence. Look at all the happiness Her herbal garden brings. She steps outside herself tonight To hear her spirit sing. She dances in the morning, And she wanders in the night. Her heart is rediscovered As her spirit soars in flight. She steps outside herself today, Looks inward from without. Finds sweet validation there; Ego boundaries disappear, As the glass begins to clear. She rises high beyond the reach Of propaganda and of lies. She’s made a home…
  • Savasana is a Pose

    Jill Reeves

    Yoga “Stuff Happens“ Yogis never sleep. They just do Savasana.” ~Jill Reeves Question of the Week: What do you do to make your Savasana special?  As I teach my yoga classes, I try to explain that Savasana is an official yoga pose. It is. Yes. Just lying there, on your mat, relaxing on your back; this is a yoga pose. No twisting or straining; no challenge. And yet, for some, it is one of the hardest poses of all to master. It is also called, “Corpse Pose” (which seems very un-yoga like to me in its connotation) but seriously; the more relaxed you become, the better benefit…

    I call this  lovely little pranayama sequence Sun Breath, but I am not really sure if that is the official name or I just made it up! I also sometimes call it Mountain Breath and have heard it referred to as Half Sun Salutation. Whatever the name, it is a really nice way to start your yoga practice. Sun Breath warms your body and gets your energy moving. You begin to focus on your breath, synchronizing it with your movement. It stretches your spine, low back, hamstrings and shoulders. I also think that it is very peaceful and meditative. It’s a simple practice that you can do…

  • 5 Ways for Urban Yogis to Live Their Yoga

    #DailyCupofYoga
    24 Mar 2015 | 4:41 am
    AHIMSA -Yoga Sutra Chapter 2 Verse 35 is one of the five Yamas, which are guidelines for how we can live in harmony with others. A traditional translation of Ahimsa means, “Do not kill or harm other people.” I’ve outlined here a more modern interpretation for today’s urban yogi. Lovingkindness Ahimsa means that when connected to our heart we naturally share lovingkindness. Love is active and it is never too late to offer healing through loving thoughts and kind actions towards yourself and others. Compassion / Connection / Respect In fact, we have an infinite abundance of compassion…
  • 3 Reasons to be Kind

    #DailyCupofYoga
    15 Mar 2015 | 5:02 am
    When giving a lecture near the end of his life, author Aldous Huxley said, “People often ask me what is the most effective technique for transforming their life. It is a little embarrassing that after years and years of research and experimentation, I have to say that the best answers is – just be a little kinder.” Kindness requires less energy. Grudges are draining because they feed distracted energy, which becomes wasted in worry, resentment, suspicion and criticism. If we call our energy back to us by being a little kinder, self-transformation happens faster. Most of all,…

    As you probably know already, Seattle is one of the top cities for yoga in the US. The Greater Seattle area has over 150 yoga studios of various sizes, offering a variety of yoga classes and styles. It seems that no matter where you go around town, you come across someone carrying a yoga mat and heading to a yoga class. We were curious to find out about the top neighborhood for yoga so we decided to do some research and analyze the number of yoga studios per zip code across the Greater Seattle area including King, Snohomish, Pierce and The post Top neighborhoods for yoga in Seattle appeared…

    Who ultimately knows why we do the things we do? Inspiration strikes, a little spark, and something impels us to move forward in a very real way. If what we’ve been struck by is yoga, moving forward often involves a yoga teacher training. We decide to pass on the inspiration so generously given by our own teachers, giving freely to other what we have been so thankful to experience. I’ve considered taking a teacher training several times since I first practiced yoga at age 15. I haven’t done it yet, but I will. It’s on the list. Even though I’m The post 11 tips for those considering…

  • Increase Fiber Intake to Improve Health

    12 Mar 2015 | 12:03 pm
    I know I've been quite slow disseminating my baby steps into health and wellness, but this reminder is worth the wait.  Fiber.  You might think that's what old people need, or that will make me have to go to the bathroom too much, or it's just a suggestion... but fiber is vitally important to the health and well being of your body and, dare I say, life.  Fiber helps you feel full, can help you lose weight, helps you clean toxins out of your system, and keeps your elimination system up and running daily.  If you are like the average American, you only eat 15 grams per day…

  • Doing yoga without an objective can be frustrating

    1 Feb 2015 | 6:28 am
    Yoga is a very elaborate system of healing as well as spiritual attainment. It does not stop at doing some twists or taking breath in a certain way. You can use yoga with different objectives. It is better to be sure of your objective beforehand so that you stay on course and are able to achieve those objectives. We give you a few examples of what you can wish to achieve from yoga and what are the requirements for that. Yoga Learner post on 'immense benefits of yoga' might help you decide.I am a fit adult.

    Breath for success

  • Breath for desire manifestation - II

    13 Mar 2015 | 9:37 pm
             Let us talk about the three most important centers of the being: the center of existence which connects the child to the mother in the womb, "I AM", therefore I exist. The heart center, "I feel" and the thinking center, "I think". The Jnana marg or the path of knowledge comes from the “I think” center and the Bhakti marg or the path of devotion is seen mostly among beings centered in the “ I feel” or the heart center. Today,we think so much that we have lost the capacity to feel. So, as the scriptures say, be a child again! When I…
  • Breath and desire manifestation - I

    12 Mar 2015 | 8:44 pm
    Now we come to the very important topic of desire manifestation. Now, you may ask, why have desires at all? Why not be desire-less and live a peaceful life. Well, two things come to my mind, meditation cannot be done on an empty and hungry stomach worrying about paying EMI’s  and if all you decide to renounce, what will you renounce? Desire or rather unfulfilled desire is one of the primary causes of rebirth. Of Course you need sense and action organs to chase these desires and in the process, you create karmas, because of your sense of doership. Now, we have to use the mind to fulfill…

Most scriptures say , “ The kingdom of heaven is within you” or “ Yat bramhande tat pinde i.e. The universe exists within you.” So, what is in the macrocosm, is within the microcosm of the body. So, if we find a way to synchronize…
  • Breath and life span

    5 Mar 2015 | 1:59 am
    Breath and life spanAncient seers measured life by the number the breaths (inhale plus exhale) we take.  On an average a normal human being breathes at a rate of 15 breaths per minute or 21,600 breaths per day. Now, the maximum life span allocated to an individual is: 15 breaths/min x 60 mins x 24 hours x 365 days x 120 years = 9,46,080,000 breaths.The total number of breaths allocated to each individual is fixed, however, the rate at which these breaths are consumed varies dramatically from individual to individual. Because of the stress associated with unfulfilled desires of the modern…

    There are plenty of reasons you may want to have private yoga lessons, one-on-one yoga at home or perhaps in your office. But since you are here your primary concern is: what are the costs of hiring a private yoga instructor?  As a certified yoga teacher since 1994, my aim is to answer the question but also the questions behind it.  What does pricing reflect, how is it calculated and so on!  I hope this is helpful.
