  • Celebrate Earth Day with Hugger Mugger!

    On April 22, 1970, the modern environmental movement was born. The very first Earth Day, conceived by then-Senator Gaylord Nelson, drew 20 million activists from all over the U.S. who took to streets, parks and university campuses to protest environmental degradation and advocate for environmental stewardship. Forty-six years later millions of people in 192 countries all around the world celebrate Earth Day.

  • Ahhh … Lateral Bending on a Bolster

    Lateral Bending on a Junior Bolster

    There really aren’t a whole lot of day-to-day tasks that require lateral bending. That’s probably why most people find side stretches in yoga—such as Parighasana (Gate Latch Pose), Talasana (Palm Tree Pose) and Parvrtta Janu Sirsasana (Revolved Head-of-the-Knee Pose)—so invigorating.

    Lateral bending can also be woven into Restorative Yoga practice. Practicing a supported lateral bend early in a Restorati…continue reading

  • Relax Your Back in Forward Bends

    Forward bends are an integral part of asana practice. Bodies folded in half “like a jack knife” are iconic images in the yoga photo canon, and loose hamstrings are often considered to be essential to being a “good” yogi. (I quibble with this, but that’s another post!)

    Because of the wide variations in body structures, many—probably most—people will never touch nose to knee with straight legs. This is not a problem. Yoga practice was …continue reading

  • Yoga Bolster Love: Enjoy the Ultimate Savasana

    What’s Better Than a Yoga Bolster in Savasana? How About Two?

    There’s nothing easier than lying down on the floor for Savasana, right? In many cases, the answer is yes. But in some ways, Savasana demands more of us than yoga’s more active asanas. Other asanas can create a fair amount of sensation, making it easy for our minds to focus on the moment. Savasana, on the other hand, with its relative comfort factor, requires a bit more of our min…continue reading

  • 4 Ways to Cultivate a Meditation Practice

    4 Tips for Committing to Meditation Practice

    Meditation ain’t easy. It’s arguable that it’s a whole lot harder than yoga asana practice. When you’re practicing asana, your mind has plenty of sensations to occupy itself. When you sit, sensations are more subtle. It’s hard work to zero in on what’s actually going on moment to moment when it at least appears that there’s not a whole lot happening.

    People often tell me they can’t medita…continue reading

  • Yoga Blocks for Chaturanga Support

    Yoga Blocks for Your Chaturanga Shoulders

    Chaturanga Dandasana is a pose that elicits strong feelings—from happiness to anxiety and everything in between. Even though we often see the Chaturanga as a shoulder strengthener, every part of your body really needs to participate.

    Shoulder strain, even tendon tears can come relying too much on arm and shoulder strength to do the pose. Unhealthy alignment can also cause chronic shoulder strain. Practici…continue reading

  • Use Yoga Blocks in Intense Side Stretch

    Use Yoga Blocks for Extra Length and Ease

    Parsvottanasana, aka Intense Side Stretch, stretches your hamstrings as it lengthens your spine. It stabilizes and challenges your balancing abilities and energizes your legs.

    However, sometimes the relationship between the hamstrings and back needs to be brought into balance. For most of us, moving too far forward in the pose will cause the back to round and the front torso to contract. There is a variatio…continue reading

  • Shore Up Your Bridge Pose with a Yoga Block

    Restorative Bridge Pose with a Yoga Block

    Setubandhasana (Bridge Pose) is an all-around beneficial pose for counteracting the most prevalent poses we practice in our daily lives. You know the ones: hunching over a desk or a steering wheel, slouching in comfy chairs.

    Most of what we do every day involves flexing our hip joints and leaning forward, which shortens the front body and weakens the back body. When practiced actively, Bridge Pose is an acc…continue reading

  • Yoga Blocks 3 Ways

    3 Great Ways to Use Yoga Blocks

    Yoga Blocks are one of the most essential tools in yoga practice. They give support, keep our joints aligned and allow us to breathe freely. Yoga Blocks were originally developed by B.K.S. Iyengar, who was well known for his insistence on alignment integrity. The three dimensions of standard-sized Yoga Blocks (4" x 6" x 9") were determined by Mr. Iyengar to offer the best choices for stability and versatility.

  • How to Choose the Best Yoga Blocks

    Choose the Yoga Blocks that Fit Your Yoga Practice

    The first time I used Yoga Blocks 30-some years ago I can’t say I loved the experience. The blocks were very heavy—solid pine—and had sharp edges that dug into my skin. They were also very slippery. The chances of dropping them on toes—and causing significant damage—were high. Plus my ego resisted us…continue reading
