One Can Never Get Bored With Yoga…

One can never get bored with yoga. It is so versatile, so complete. It deals with how to help your body, how to help your mind find happiness and transform itself, to know and understand what “is” and so to know what should be called the Self. The whole philosophy and practice of yoga is developed for the good of each and every individual–so that he or she can find the Self individually, and thereby divine the undercurrent of happiness in all life.

How Yoga Can Help You Stop Feeling Like You’re Not Spiritual Enough and Love Your Life

I used to feel like a bad yoga teacher, like someone who wasn’t living up to the title. Because I like to wear stylish clothes, love when my Vogue and Vanity Fair magazines arrive in the mail, and the amount of pleasure I get from a good dark chocolate bar is almost indecent. So, I […]

Sacred Sound: Mantras & Chants

Many years ago when I started a yoga practice, I had no idea what it would reveal to me. I was just hoping for a little extra strength and flexibility, and I did what I could to avoid all the spiritual trappings of the practice. But, somehow, as it does, the yoga did its job. […]

NamaSTAY Yoga Towel Review and Giveaway!

I know when I practice yoga, whether hot or otherwise, I’m usually a sweaty disaster. It’s a good disaster, but sweaty nonetheless.

A.U.M…(Almighty Universal Magnetic)…by MC Yogi…definitely going on repeat

Time to turn up the volume! MC Yogi just released a sweet new music video that has me pumped about his new album, Mantras, Beats & Meditations, set to release on April 1. His videos always have great visuals, but A.U.M. may be my new favorite. It’s tough to beat the combination of great lyrics, thumping […]

  1. I second the sentiment! Yoga is indeed versatile and my days are never complete without doing at least 30 minutes of poses.
    On another note, here’s something I came across on Buzzfeed: http://www.buzzfeed.com/jessicamisener/23-problems-only-yoga-people-understand

  2. No matter how much it hurts, and it DOES hurt lol I love it, and I think my life has improved dramatically since starting it.

  3. Guru Rattana has made a name for herself in the world of Kundalini Yoga. It should not be surprising that in addition to reading materials and DVDs that she also offers online lessons free of charge on Yoga Technology. These lessons introduce individuals to this type of yoga. It is very enlightening, so check it out!

  4. Yoga Tech is the only place online that has the complete Maya Fiennes DVD collection. I purchased it from http://www.yogatech.com and also received a free DVD. I have been watching each daily so that I can further increase my yoga skills. She really is an awesome teacher because she blends music with movement

  5. I tried to explain this to a new client yesterday, who finds the idea of yoga boring. Being in his 60s I also created a classic rock playlist for the class, and he actually enjoyed it.

  6. Awesome post!
