    Now the best part of this article is that I’m not trying to sell you anything–no fancy lotions or potions. Following this advice won’t cost you anything extra, in fact it may save you money! Every time I’ve looked into the mirror lately I’m amazed at what I see. My skin has been noticeably smoother and I’m certainly not used to liking what I see in my reflection. I’ve been blessed with little bones and skinny genes, but nice skin . . . not so much. I never had nice skin even when I was young and now that I’m in my mid forties, well, that situation is only getting worse. My…

    I get together with a group of entrepreneurs once a month to brainstorm and talk about how things are going with our businesses. Our interests are diverse but all relate to wellness and creating great lives for our clients and ourselves. So we end up sharing a lot of cool stuff! At our meeting this week, Nathalie brought us through a hypnosis session. No one ended up running around clucking like a chicken (although she assured us that her backyard was fenced should it happen!) She explained hypnosis was like meditation but allowed you to go deeper. Nathalie’s words relaxed and inspired…

    Get inspired by these stories of yoga’s power to heal the wounds of grief, physical disability, emotional trauma, and disease. An oft-debated truism about the nature of pain says that “all suffering is equal.” For many, the notion that starvation or torture and anxiety are on the same plane can feel offensive. According to renowned yoga teacher, Tiffany Cruikshank, founder of Yoga Medicine, “All suffering is similar. Whether we’re suffering from relationship trauma or low-back pain it wears on our consciousness in a similar way.” Step into any yoga studio around the world…
  • Why the Mediterranean Diet Is Not a Short-Lived Fad

    The Mediterranean diet’s heavy-duty antioxidant and anti-inflammatory powers may lead to a longer, healthier life. Eating Mediterranean-style could lead to a longer, healthier life. After analyzing the diets of more than 4,600 women, researchers at Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women’s Hospital found that those most loyal to the Mediterranean diet—which centers on vegetables and fruits, nuts, legumes, whole grains, olive oil, and fish—possessed longer telomeres, the chromosomal caps that protect our DNA.

    The lightning bolt struck this morning and I realized that lately my practice has been missing something vital. My week (as much as it pains me to admit it, probably much longer than a week) in yoga has been all business -- unroll mat, go through the postures efficiently, roll mat back up and stow, and get on with the day. Today I found myself nostalgic for those first days of yoga when I didn't know the postures all that well and delighted in how the new and strange movements felt in my body. Somehow I've morphed into unconscious muscle memory land, simply doing my time on the mat (without…

    Life is happening in a big way these days, so it seems. Divorce, death, sickness, breakups -- while none are happening to me directly, they are happening to folks I know. I tend to be a bit sensitive to the pain of others, so I'm feeling this all deeply. Rather than tune it out (I used to be really good at doing that and did so for years), I'm tuning in. Seems a little counterintuitive, yeah? It's been said that we are creatures that seek out pleasure and avoid pain. Yet avoiding pain seems impossible, being that we're human and all. And, frankly, would we really want to avoid pain? As the…

    Love and compassion -- powerful stuff. Some would say they are the most powerful forces on earth. Yet, how can you offer them to others if you don't have love and compassion for yourself? Years ago, I met a doctor who was struggling with dealing with his patients. He judged himself because he had difficulty feeling compassion for his patients and found himself getting impatient when they voiced complaints. As our conversation continued, he shared that something happened in his past that he blamed himself for. It was an accident, yet he was taking not just responsibility but blame. He was very…

It could be the playfulness of learning new games and songs and then teaching them to kids in the camps. Perhaps it’s a combination of all of these things that makes the Summer Certification so special. Plus, you get your 95 Hour Certificate at the end! If you…

    Did you know that you can tell if fruit and veggies are organic just by looking at the little sticker on them? Well, you can! The numbered stickers on store-bought fruit and vegetables indicate whether the items were organically grown. Regular produce carries a four-digit code starting with a 3 or 4, while organic has five digits starting with a 9. For example, if a bunch of conventional carrots is tagged 4094, its organic counterpart would be labeled 94094.

  • Distinguishing the Ego from the Higher Mind

    Kathleen Bryant
    13 May 2015 | 5:30 am
    How well do you know your own mind? Yoga traditions teach that mind has four parts or functions, but the part we know best—or think we know best—is ahamkara, the ego mind. One of the aims of yoga is to spend more time in buddhi, often referred to as higher mind. But how do we distinguish between the two? As meditators can confirm, trying to grasp the mind is like ...

    Cowgirl Yoga

  • OM at home

    20 May 2015 | 7:57 pm
    Practicing at home - mission impossible? It doesn't have to be if you dedicate a little effort to creating some OM at home. I'm lucky enough to have an entire room to dedicate to my yoga practice - but it wasn't always this way, and that didn't stop me from doing yoga. My biggest wish for the women who attend my retreats is to be able to take practice inspiration home with them, but we don't always have the time or money to give to yoga classes. So how to be more consistent? Online yoga classes have made that a lot easier - but if you can't feel inspired in your practice space, it…

  • Asana break-it-down: Bird of Paradise

    25 Apr 2015 | 4:14 pm
    Bird of Paradise in Paradise Valley, Montana Spring in Montana! Like all other seasons here, the calendar date means nothing. We recently had sunny and mild, 40 mph hour winds, and big, fat snowflakes all in one hour. But even in the state where we can have all 4 seasons in one day, any day of the year...birdsong means spring. Feisty robins sing like their lungs will burst starting at 4 am, and get territorial and attack our windows with recurring thuds that make me worry for their wellbeing.So to greet the spring season on the mat, how about incorporating an asana inspired by a…

    I haven't seemed to be able to do any Yoga since getting to Rome. For years I've had a steady and serious practice, and I even brought my Yoga mat with me, along with my best intentions. But it just isn't happening here. I mean, when am I going to do my Yoga stretches? Before my Italian speedball breakfast of chocolate pastries and double cappuccino? Or after? - Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat Pray LoveFresh back from a family vacation in Italy, where I didn't do a single down dog. Oops. I just couldn't seem to fit it in between all the pasta and gelato.

    I get together with a group of entrepreneurs once a month to brainstorm and talk about how things are going with our businesses. Our interests are diverse but all relate to wellness and creating great lives for our clients and ourselves. So we end up sharing a lot of cool stuff! At our meeting this week, Nathalie brought us through a hypnosis session. No one ended up running around clucking like a chicken (although she assured us that her backyard was fenced should it happen!) She explained hypnosis was like meditation but allowed you to go deeper. Nathalie’s words relaxed and inspired…
  • Gazing into the Meaning of Drishti

    Jill Reeves
    22 May 2015 | 12:48 pm
    Yoga “Stuff Happens” Drishti is a Sanskrit word that comes from yoga. (In fact, it is one of the few Sanskrit words that I can remember and properly pronounce.) According to my Google search, the practice of Drishti is “a gazing technique that develops concentration and teaches you to see the world as it really is. In yoga, Drishti is a point of focus where the gaze rests during a posture and meditation practice–gazing outward while bringing awareness inward.” One of my favorite ways to offer Drishti is before a rigorous set of asanas like Warrior series or Sun Salutations.
  • Tips for building strength through yoga

    charlotte bradley
    15 May 2015 | 11:30 am
    I am participating in a fun 30-day wellness challenge put on by my friend Mike at the Wellness Bucket. The second day, the challenge was to state your current fitness goal. My focus is on building strength. Yoga has helped me in all kinds of ways. It has made more flexible, resilient, centered and more content. I’ve found more balance in my life (at least some of the time…) and also have learned to be ok with things when things are a bit out of whack. And lately I have been discovering strength through yoga. It is pretty awesome! I know that I can be mentally strong. I have been through…
  • Yoga for your hips and hamstrings

    charlotte bradley
    13 May 2015 | 3:16 pm
    For the past couple of weeks I have been feeling a bit of tension on the right side of my lower body. There is a twinge in my right leg from my hamstring through my hip and lower back. Not surprising that all of these areas are affected as they are closely connected. But it still surprises me when I feel this kind of thing because I do a lot of yoga (thank goodness for that!) What’s up with all this lower body tightness? Sitting for extended periods of time (like when driving, working at your computer and watching tv) causes tightness in your hip flexors and hamstrings. Your muscles are…

    charlotte bradley
    7 May 2015 | 11:32 am
    This week I taught a class with a focus on twists. It included a couple of standing and a few seated twists. And it’s only a 50-minute class! I admit that twists are not my favourite. I almost always do a reclined twist at the end of my practice but otherwise tend to avoid them. But I think that the poses we avoid are probably the ones we most need! So for the past week I have been twisting. A lot. What is a twist? A twisting posture is one where your shoulder girdle moves in the opposite direction relative to your hips. There are different twists that target different areas…

  • Bliss is Not an Attitude

    #DailyCupofYoga
    26 May 2015 | 5:23 am
    For me the reality of bliss within is not just a nice, fanciful New Age idea. It is not a mood, or an attitude of happiness. Bliss is a way of being in the world, and can be established as an achievement from meditation and one’s own personal development. Inversely, trying to create happiness on a surface level is not sustainable and can even create strain, especially if one actually feels bad, but is pretending to be happy. Trying to be happy or positive can foster an insincere and disingenuous state of mind, or mood making. Mood making is not healthy for our emotional state and can tend…

  • How Do You Choose The Yoga Teacher That’s Right For You?

    #DailyCupofYoga
    28 Apr 2015 | 6:37 am
      One of the biggest issues yoga students face today is finding a truly great yoga teacher. A teacher in whom they can place not only their trust, but who will also guide them in achieving the ultimate purpose of their life. Sure, most yoga teachers know something about alignment. Or maybe they can put a good flow together. But very few teachers are practiced and learned in the ways of what yoga truly has to offer. There is clear evidence of this in the lack of teachers who understand and teach methodologies such as stillness (Stirha), or the ability to cultivate effortlessness and good…
  • Mysore: The Answer to the Universe

    #DailyCupofYoga
    2 Apr 2015 | 6:06 am
    Yoga is 99% practice and 1% theory. ~ Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. Mysore, probably the most overlooked approach to Ashtanga yoga, is invaluable for progression in personal practice, making it one of yoga’s best-kept secrets. But before we dive deeper into the nitty-gritties of this incredible yet underutilized approach, a thought for modern-day yogis:  For some, yoga seems to be just “exercise” — a way to become more flexible, maybe even work on core strength, perhaps learn to “chill” here and there.  For many others, however, yoga is a life long journey of self-discovery,…

When I arrived, the crisis was entering its fifth year and more than 220,000 Syrians had lost their lives. The news was always grim. Grief, distress and heartache were omnipresent when I arrived. But the most tangible sentiment I perceived was the sense of support and community that the Syrians brought to each yoga session. The post The…
