Yoga for Two

posted by Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg on May 13, 2013 |

yoga for twoYoga for Two A teacher at the yoga studio where I teach put out a call for help: She had to work suddenly and needed coverage for her class. Because she had covered for me several times before, and I had other people covering my class for me for the next two weeks, I felt compelled to answer her call. After I sent the email, however, I remembered: Tonight was

yoga posesYoga Poses Get You in the Door – Once You’re Inside There’s a Whole Lot More than You Bargained For When I first started practicing yoga, I was all about the poses. I mean, of course, right? I was 18 and obsessed with losing weight. I’m honestly not sure what else I even could have been focused on at that point, to tell you the truth. Getting There For the

yoga dogYoga Dog – The Yoga of Living with a Big, Naughty Dog I love our dog Shay, who arrived at our front door a little over a year ago with a look on his face that clearly communicated, “You are my people.” At the same time, this dog drives me crazy.

posted by admin on April 22, 2013 |

rubber yoga matsPara Rubber Yoga Mats Native to South America, rubber trees (Hevea brasiliensis) are tapped for their latex, the source material for all natural rubber products. While more than half the rubber used in manufacturing today is synthetic—from petroleum sources—we use only natural, tree-sourced, Malaysian rubber in our mats. Our Para Rubber Yoga Mats come in three earthy colors:  Tropical, Rainforest and River.  The mat’s surface sports a striated pattern that

kitchereeKitcheree:  Spring Cleaning for Your Body From The Yoga Cookbook:  Vegetarian Food for Body and Mind People love kitcheree! This hearty, one-pot dish is widely eaten in India, especially by sadhus, who leave it to cook while they are meditating. Kitcheree gives strength and vitality, and is often used as a part of a body detox program (think spring cleaning), after kriyas (cleansing exercises) and upon breaking of a fast.

Boston Marathon: Remembering Our Buddha Nature

posted by Charlotte Bell on April 16, 2013 |

boston marathonBoston Marathon:  Remembering Our Buddha Nature When I heard the news of the Boston Marathon bombing on NPR yesterday, like most of us, I was horrified and saddened. I still can’t wrap my mind around why anyone would want to kill and maim innocent people who were there simply to celebrate a fun, venerated community event. I immediately thought of my friend and fellow musician, Cory Maxfield, a flutist I’ve

Ardha Chandrasana: Dynamic Balance

posted by Charlotte Bell on April 15, 2013 |

ardha chandrasanaArdha Chandrasana:  Dynamic Balance Some schools of yoga teach that it’s best not to practice on the two ends of the moon’s cycle—the full and new moons. The theory is that because our bodies are mostly made of water, like the tides of the ocean, the tides of our cells shift with the phases of the moon. During the full moon, our energies tend to rise—have you ever had trouble

Step Out of Your Own Way

posted by Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg on April 10, 2013 |

step out of your own wayStep Out of Your Own Way So easy to forget how to walk through your thoughts, to let the weather in your head erase the weather threading itself, right now, through the trap lines of the wind, the tunnels of quiet between the rushing grasslands. So simple to stop seeing what time wants to show you. On the edge of the train’s calling, a whistle half lost in the merciful

The Yoga of Empowerment

posted by Anna Guest-Jelley on April 9, 2013 |

yoga of empowermentThe Yoga of Empowerment I came to yoga right around the time I came to social justice work.

It’s because at the root of both, I see a desire to be fully embodied—accepted and free. What Yoga Has to Do With It When I first became an activist,
