    Rick Foster and Greg Hicks set out on a three-year journey to study extremely happy people. In their book How We Choose to Be Happy, they found that there are nine choices happy people make. One of those nine is to practice Appreciation.  The other of the nine choices includes: Intention, Accountability, Identification, Centrality, Recasting, Options, Giving, Truthfulness, and Synergy. Happy people actively exercise gratitude and choose to live with an attitude of gratitude. They don’t buy into what geneticists say, that we have an unmovable “happiness set-point.” The happiest…

    Summer is finally upon us, which means it's time to embrace the warm weather and build up a sweat with some of your favorite outdoor pastimes. For many people, this is the time of year to get out their jogging shoes – running is one of the top summer sports. But there's more you can do to prepare for the strenuous activity than lacing up your sneakers – turn to yoga poses to improve your performance. Yoga benefits the body in a wide variety of ways, many of which can directly benefit your experience as a runner. One of the biggest perks is that it improves flexibility,…

The topics for the seminar include: Classical and contemporary dimensions of Yoga Dimensions and Direction of Yoga envisaged by Patanjali and Sri Krishna Is yoga a system of philosophy or a healthcare therapy?

    I don't have any earth shattering wisdom or yoga philosophy to share today. Nope, today is all about the practical. You see, I practice yoga at home. Have done so for years. Yes, I occassionally step out and go to a yoga studio and/or workshop, but my day to day practice is done in my home. These days I have a dedicated space in my house for my yoga (although I will step out on my deck or unroll my mat out in my sunroom on occasion). As the weather turns from warm to hot, the windows close and the AC comes on. This sometimes leaves me with an olfactory issue. I'm going to need to spell it…

This is one of the reasons that it can be fun to get to know others -- as well as oneself -- it's like an archaeological dig discovering new treasures at various excavation points.  Recently I met someone who seemed like a certain "type." I'll admit that when I first met this person, I had a judgment moment. I was tempted to simply smile, have a brief exchange, and then be on my way. Instead, I decided to stay and be open to more. I had that feeling that there was more to this person than…

    It's said that everyone has a vice. The thing I wonder is: if the habit is socially acceptable then is it viewed as a vice? Take drinking, for instance. Does anyone raise an eyebrow when someone at the table downs a bottle of wine if everyone at the table is drinking? I can remember going to a celebratory end-of-training dinner with a bunch of fellow yoga practitioners and being the only one at the table who wasn't drinking alcohol (anyone who knows me knows that I rarely drink, as it's just not something that has ever really appealed to me). I got more than a few comments -- and when I say…

    So Lebron James is going to Cleveland.  Not a big surprise.  Lebron makes emotional decisions and this is certainly one.  He chose his hometown team, and wants to be the man to bring a championship to Cleveland.  Lebron, Irving, Wiggins… that’s awesome.  Varejao and Tristan Thompson, not so much.  That backcourt alone though would be a championship contender in the terrible East. Chris Bosh should go to Houston, that is clearly the best option for him.  The Rockets are in his home state, and there is too much money to be left on the table.  Miami would be a good situation…

    1) Goran Dragic, Guard, Phoenix Suns The Dragon played for Phoenix before, was traded away, and has ended up back with his old team and is playing better than ever before. He showed flashes back in Phoenix’s playoff run a few years back when he scored 26 points in a quarter. Every part of his game is better: defense, shooting, passing, scoring, driving to the hoop, decision-making, defense. He is a very intense player and plays with a ton of confidence. Analysts will call that “feisty”, meaning he doesn’t smile a lot on the court and always looks like he’s on the verge of fighting…

However, I have hope for the dude. Yes, it’s good to be Johnny Football. If I were a GM, and I had a top 16 pick, I would…

There are some similar poses out there which have popped up in the last few years but this one I love because it is a mack daddy stretch for the psoas, oblique muscles, and chest muscles. That is, when it is done right. When it’s done wrong, it can be a back cruncher especially at the Sacroilliac Joint. But after reading this, you will have the knowledge to make this not just therapeutic but outright ecstatic! It is important to understand that this pose is really a combo of a side bend (opening the side waist), a back bend (opening…

    When stepping outside feels like stepping into a Hot Power Yoga class, at a constant temperature of 86 degrees or more, how do you find inspiration to keep up with your yoga practice? Unless you spend the whole day in air conditioning, a hot and vigorous practice is probably not appropriate or comfortable in the summer. Even in an air conditioned studio, practices with a lot of heat that are ... Continue reading "Summer Yoga Practice Inspirations" on Yoga Basics.com

    “Put your foot here and scooch it forward. Now reach your arms back, wait there, no just a little further … oh … PERFECT!” exclaimed the instructor, beaming at her sculptural creation.  The student smiled awkwardly, trying to ignore the stabbing pain in her lower back. The truth is that most yoga assists are beloved by students and teachers alike. For many students, hands-on adjustments offer an opportunity to sink ...

This hybrid of yoga, partner dance, gymnastics, ballet—and of course, acrobatics—is one of the hottest new trends in yoga. Peruse social media videos and you’ll undoubtedly come across scores of videos showing couples—a “base” and a “flyer”—flowing through seemingly effortless sequences as the base (the one on the floor) uses hands and feet to maneuver the ...

    Most yoga teachers are chock-full of posture cues designed to protect the body during an asana practice. Alignment prompts like "keep your knee over your ankle," and "inwardly rotate your thighs" are often heard during Warrior postures as important tools for keeping the body safe. In slower paced classes, those alignment cues are often easy to follow. However, the popular, fast-paced flow of vinyasa yoga causes some of us to overlook alignment, ...

    5 Jul 2014 | 3:56 pm
    This is our National Park summer. We just got back from 5 days in Yellowstone, and are headed to Glacier next week. It makes me happy to live so close to these treasures. Wonderland is never the same thing twice. And it will be tough to top this round's wildlife show - we saw wolves in three different places in the Lamar Valley. I couldn't stop telling the others how this bordered on unbelievable, particularly for non wolf watchers (who spend countless hours watching and waiting by their scopes). Add to that mountain goats, osprey nests, bighorn sheep, pronghorns, bison, elk, bald eagles,…

    25 Jun 2014 | 11:09 am
    The other night I had the good fortune to participate in a two hour groundwork clinic with my horse, Java. What, no riding? That's what I used to say. It's taken me years to understand that how we interact with a horse on the ground has a lot to do with how we ride. And that we can improve our riding without being on horseback. Everyone wants to get right on. It's sort of like heading straight into eka pada galavasana without any prep work (see here for more on that topic).When I first got Java a year and a half ago, all I wanted to do was ride him. He is a Tennessee Walking Horse, which…

Our retreat season began earlier this month with our annual Cowgirls vs. Cancer retreat. Words just can't do it justice. So I may have to stick with the pictures.

    In the latest yoga news, yoga something-or-the-other (celeb? model? Or as she calls herself, “rebel”?) Tara Stiles is promoting her new program for W hotels by cruising around NYC in a glass box on wheels, all the better for people to gawk at her doing yoga. Geez. I could say something a lot stronger, but this was the first thing that came out. As a former member of the beauty and fashion brigade, I must say that I am glad I got out of NYC. When things like this happen, I often recall hours on end in L’Oreal meeting rooms taking makeup very seriously. I can just imagine the marketing…

    The bell is invited to sound. Happily, she obliges. The admonition, “Don’t forget to breathe!” Brings a smile. He had indeed forgotten (Living in forgetfulness is easy), But is a failing that demands redress, With nothing but restoration in view. And so the bell sounds once again, And incense rises to the nostrils of a man Upon whom awareness has dawned. He won’t forget to breathe.

Thank you to you and your son for sharing your inspiring story. — 11 years ago my eldest son started exhibiting the first signs of Tourette Syndrome.  His grade 1 teacher told us we should medicate, when I said no she placed a note in his school record saying that we were difficult parents and refused to acknowledge the fact that our 6 year old was a problem and we refused to treat him.   The next year his teacher called him gifted and tried to…

    14 Jul 2014 | 6:07 pm
      British historian Robert Robert Poole’s book, Earthrise: How Man First Saw the Earth, is an extraordinary account of two iconic photographs that captured the imagination of the whole world. On December 24, 1968, NASA’s Apollo 8 spacecraft sent two images to earth; one, the “Pale Blue Dot” made famous by Carl Sagan’s book by that name, and “Earthrise,” the cover picture of Poole’s book. The sight of earth rising over the moon was as majestic as it was humbling; the “pale blue dot” gave us a more accurate sense of how we fit into the cosmic order. It could no longer…

    I’ve talked about this before, but I can not stress enough  the power in journalling.  Whether you use a laptop, book and pen, or become completely untraditional and use art as your journal: just taking a minute to be with your thoughts is a monumental experience.  Over the last few weeks, I’ve gone through a lot of changes (all positive) but all required a shift (both mentally and physically).  I had to change my schedule,  my pattern and my thoughts: all which resulted in a bit of struggle and are slowly becoming resolved through journalling. So I thought for this week, I…
  • Pause to Breathe in Awareness

    William Ferro
    2 Jul 2014 | 5:36 pm
    Breathing is something of a miracle. Without any conscious effort, we breathe continuously over a lifetime, sustaining our lives. When we become aware of this remarkable process, we can derive a great deal of pleasure from it. Simply pausing to breathe in and out in awareness is a source of great enjoyment.  Pranyama is the art of breath extension (the Sanskrit word literally means “extending the breath”). The best-known form of this art is alternate-nostril breathing; it’s something that can help you to calm down very quickly in highly emotional situations. To practice it, simply…

  • 5 Ways Yoga Can Help You Fall in Love with Your Body

    #DailyCupofYoga
    22 Jul 2014 | 6:09 am
    When I first started doing yoga, I really didn’t like my body very much. I rarely had any positive thoughts about it. Mostly when I thought about my body I felt frustrated, or ashamed. These sound like big things to feel but in my experience talking and working with women these are some of the most common ways us women feel about our body. When we give ourselves the time and space to really listen to what we tell ourselves about our body, it’s surprising what we hear. It’s unusual for us to have thoughts like “I love my body,” “My body is amazing,” “I appreciate everything my…

    #DailyCupofYoga
    4 Jul 2014 | 7:12 am
    Theming is an integral part of the class-planning process if you are a yoga teacher, whether it is done consciously or not. Some people prefer to prepare a short story or inspirational reading, others choose a word or anecdote to share. However, even if you’re not intentionally putting forth the effort to plan a theme for class, theming still occurs. A conversation that came up during my training a few weeks ago had to do with the topic of theming. How necessary is a theme, even? What makes a good, or a bad, theme? Christina Sell dropped some wisdom on us that I found both comforting…

    1. I am stronger than I know. I spent hours upon hours, day after day doing insane amounts of intense yoga. My body did not let me down. On the contrary, it surprised me almost daily by how much it was able and willing to do. There was a point in the week where my body seemed to tell my mind to “STFU. I got this. Quit telling me what I am incapable of. Enjoy the ride.” 2. We are all in this together. One of my favorite moments of the week was laying on the ground in savasana, singing “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” while holding hands with a drag performer from Seattle and an…

    Rick Foster and Greg Hicks set out on a three-year journey to study extremely happy people. In their book How We Choose to Be Happy, they found that there are nine choices happy people make. One of those nine is to practice Appreciation.  The other of the nine choices includes: Intention, Accountability, Identification, Centrality, Recasting, Options, Giving, Truthfulness, and Synergy. Happy people actively exercise gratitude and choose to live with an attitude of gratitude. They don’t buy into what geneticists say, that we have an unmovable “happiness set-point.” The happiest…

    Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like. – Lao Tzu The beauty of a yoga practice is that it helps us learn acceptance. Initially, I found that my practice was helping me learn to accept my body as it was that day in that particular moment. Every time I would go to class, my teachers would remind me, remind us all, that a piece of doing a posture was simply about focusing on where our bodies were right then. Not where they were the day before. Not…

    3 Jul 2014 | 8:26 am
    Sadhguru: Kedarnath is a tremendous space. The utterance of the sound “Shiva” attains a completely new dimension and significance in Kedar. It is a space which has been specially prepared for this particular sound. When we utter the word “Shiva,” it is the freedom of the uncreated, the liberation of one who is not created. It is not right to say this, but it is almost like on this planet, the sound “Shiva” emanates from this place. For thousands of years, people have experienced that space as a reverberation of that sound.When we say “Shiva,” it is not about creating one more…

A moment where we fell out of a pose and laughed and it was everything. A moment that showed us we’re stronger than we realized. A moment where we finally kicked up into headstand on our own and couldn’t believe it. A moment where we could finally let it all go and just be. That “moment” is different for everyone and this summer we want to celebrate YOUR yoga moments. We…

  • The Four R’s of Refraining from Shenpa

    Have you ever experienced being so affected by a certain act or object that it completely throws you off your game? You can feel it – whether it is the way that someone looks at you, or a certain song, or just by simply walking into a certain room. It has nothing to do with the present but it makes you feel uneasy, angry, jealous, and other emotions which lead to words and actions that end up poisoning us. The Tibetan word for this is Shenpa. Shenpa translates to “attachment” or a more descriptive translation might be “hooked”. Shenpa hooks us by thriving on our underlying…

    Do you find yourself constantly thinking about something someone had said to you weeks ago? Do you have a hard time sleeping because you brain won’t stop anticipating tomorrow’s events? Are you often worried about everything? How you look? What you’ll eat? Do you often feel anxious and tense? If your answer is yes, then you have an overactive mind. Overthinking leaves you restless, and worried. Repeatedly thinking about the mistake you did three days ago will definitely make you upset. It also consumes most of your time- time you could be spending on doing something you enjoy.
  • Mind Over DNA, Think Beyond Your Genes

    “Genes are the blueprint for life.” This basic definition gives emphasis on how genes control all cellular activities. This also means that much of who we are and how we behave are determined by our DNA. However, this idea proves to be a misconception. According to Dr Bruce H. Lipton, bestselling author of The Biology of Belief, this belief system makes an individual “more or less a victim of heredity.” Having this idea gives a person an excuse to be unaccountable for his or her actions because this concept “says you are less powerful than your genes.” The cell, the basic…

The basics are still needed such as a quiet surrounding, a comfortable position and a peaceful state of mind. Practicing this can help you connect further not only with the world but everything in nature as well. All that is needed are these simple things: a bell and 4 small pebbles. It’s a simple method, really. You place the pile of pebbles to your right and just listen to the sound of the bell.

    Even those that take root in very traditional ways must embrace change. This is what His Holiness the Dalai Lama did in a lunch with many supporters of the cause later in October 2012. There was a demand for innovation in the old Buddhist ways, and so His Holiness handled the matter at hand. Gone are the days when there was a great divide that separated Religion and Science. More than often, men of science have always been in debate with men of religion over the search for truth. Science has always been equipped with cold hard facts that answer every mind-boggling question the world could…

Then a depression, anxiety and stress test and the Patient Health Questionnaire were…

The event, organized by City of Hope, marked yet another mesmerizing event in support of cancer research and the fight against life-threatening diseases.

  • The Great Namaste: Yoga is a game of dominos

    Enid Spitz
    20 Jul 2014 | 5:31 am
    I often offer up “yoga playtime” in my vinyasa classes, free space and time for students to explore postures with levity. Flash back to childhood playtime – would yoga be a jungle gym, the game of Life, or a stack of retro blocks? One thing is for sure: yoga is not about passing “Go” the most, dominating record books or blasting away all competition. Instead, yoga is a game of dominos. Each unique piece is part of the cohesive set; the point is building connections; the play can involve both meticulous construction and tumbling down. On July 11th 2014, 808 yogis lined up…

    Texan Brene Brown has been researching human emotions for 12 years, and has written three books on the topic. She’s found that everyone experiences shame, the feeling of not being good enough, but that some people are more well equipped to thrive even in the face of shameful thoughts. People who can put shame aside and still have faith that they will get through challenges, she calls “whole-hearted.” Whole-hearted people share characteristics of courage, compassion and connection. And, thankfully, anyone can learn these life skills of whole-hearted types. The ability to trust in…

  • Book Review: Sacred Sound by Alanna Kaivalya

    rebelyogaonline
    21 Jul 2014 | 9:04 am
    When I started doing yoga in 2003, I was curious to see how it would improve my dancing and I hoped to gain flexibility. Through the years, however, I’ve realized that there is much more to yoga than asana, or the physical postures. Through this book, I got to explore nada yoga – or the yoga of sacred sound. Nada yoga often gets the short shrift in the West because mantras and kirtan aren’t readily understood. However, chants are held sacred in all types of Eastern spiritual practice for the way they can help practitioners bypass the day-to-day mental chatter of the mind in…

    I’m on day 7 of a self-imposed 30-day alcohol detox and I feel wonderful! I’ve been sleeping better. My digestion is better (sorry). I am loving the clear-headed feeling I have when I wake up in the morning. I even expect to lose a few pounds. I don’t drink more than what I would consider “normal” but when I added up the amount, it certainly seemed like a lot. Half a bottle of wine at dinner with friends on a Tuesday. Two cocktails on a Thursday when I’ve had a bad day at work. Five beers on Sunday Fundays with friends. You get the point. So, I thought…

    Finding time for what’s really important Over the last month and a half, I have traveled to Las Vegas, LA, Portland and Ohio. I went on a camping trip. I have been working like a mad woman and have had engagements nearly every single night. Looking through my yoga journal, I noticed I only practiced 11 times in the month of June. And that was an effort. I’m even multi-tasking while I write this. Life is crazy. Can you relate? Although it may seem nearly impossible, finding balance is even more important when you’re busy and stressed. That’s why I wanted to include the…

  • My Favorite Meditation Apps

      Meditation can be intimidating. When I was new to the practice, I wrongly thought that in order to achieve the benefits I had to completely quiet my mind – a task that seemed nearly impossible. I also thought I needed to find 45 minutes every day to sit. What if I have an itch? Etc. Fortunately, once I took the plunge, I realized that meditation isn’t nearly as hard as I thought. I won’t bore you with all the reasons that you should meditate. There are tons of blog posts describing meditation’s benefits already out there. Read them here, here and here. If you…
