Grounding: How I Root Myself

posted by Anna Guest-Jelley on January 4, 2012 |

groundingGrounding:  Strong, Solid and Free My feet don’t often touch the ground. Now, don’t me wrong; no one’s going to mistake me for David Blaine or anything.

Public Speaking and Me This has started to change for me a bit in the past

novice yogiA Novice Yogi Explores the Push-Pull of Practice The most difficult part of starting an exercise routine—millions of people know what I’m talking about—is sticking with the program.

yoga for stressThe Gift of Presence:  Yoga for Stress The holidays are always quite the Catch-22, aren’t they? On the one hand, we look forward to them all year—the friends, the family, the festivities, heck—even the over-abundant yard displays. But on the other hand, they can often suck us into a vortex of stress—things to buy, gifts to wrap, food to cook, parties to attend, and seemingly more commitments with each passing

cat meditationJihad Kitty Demonstrates Cat Meditation From Tabitha:  “Here is a pic of my kitty Jihad on a Hugger Mugger zafu. She likes to perch in seemingly uncomfortable places while experiencing Samtosha. I wish I had a picture of her with a lamp. She likes to sleep right next to light bulbs and then purrs. So not good for her, but she freaking loves it.” Editor’s Note:  Humans are not the

KK Ledford and CoffeeThe Traveling Yogi Visits KK’s Kosmic Kula How to decide which yoga class to take, or studio to visit, or even which hand-poured coffee to drink when visiting San Francisco? One Sunday morning in June I made the difficult choice (ha) of drinking both Blue Bottle and Ritual Roasters coffee in Hayes Valley before heading to Shakti Church with KK Ledford.

Want to Run 100 Miles? Yoga Can Help

Endurance RunningYoga, Meditation and Vegan Diet Keep Scott Jurek on Top It is a rare person indeed that would consider spending the better part of 24 hours running non-stop on grueling, high-altitude trails. Even more rare is the one who would do this many times each year, consistently coming in first and obliterating course records all the while. This takes not only extraordinary talent and a healthy heart, but also the

Another Argument for Slow, Gentle Stretching

posted by Charlotte Bell on November 21, 2011 |

In Yoga classes, we hear and talk a lot about muscles—which muscles are stretching or contracting in a certain pose, how to stretch or engage muscles, how poses effect certain muscles, etc. This is because it is our muscles that move our bones via their paired contracting and stretching actions.
