Why Yoga Works!

Nothing is more of a drag than poor health or annoying injuries so at the very least remember that all that you learn on your mat will help you learn how to walk, run, dance, swim, hike, think, breathe the right way.

Remember that while strength and speed have their place, dexterity, coordination, agility, focus, efficiency and range of motion are just some of the other tools that are required for optimal movement. Because yoga is so all-inclusive, yoga fills in the gaps of your training, speeds recovery and ensures that you don’t have any weak links in your musculo-skeletal system.

It’s play for adults, who never get to stand on one foot and pretend they’re a tree. It lets you try new things without fear. It’s a chance to meet like-minded people and learn something new. It teaches you about yourself..more »

Yoga Take 1
Yoga Take 2

Arthur Boorman was a disabled veteran of the Gulf War for 15 years, and was told by his doctors that he would never be able to walk on his own, ever again.

He stumbled upon an article about Yoga and decided to give it a try. Even though doctors told him walking would never happen, Arthur was persistent. He fell many times, but kept going ..

His story is proof, that we cannot place limits on what we are capable of doing, because we often do not know our own potential. Neither Arthur nor Dallas knew what he would go on to accomplish, but this video speaks for itself. In less than a year, Arthur completely transformed his life.

Do not waste any time thinking you are stuck – you can take control over your life, and change it faster than you might think. Hopefully this story can inspire you to follow your dreams – whatever they may be .. and then there’s Ellen.. more »

Alternative Medicines for Anxiety

Anxiety is the body and mind’s response to a dangerous or distressing situation. Everyone experiences some degree of anxiety at some time. However, anxiety can occur persistently, often triggered by vague notions of a threat, and interfere with normal activities. When this happens, it’s called an anxiety disorder.

Modalities such as meditation, homeopathy, yoga, breathwork, herbs and other therapies offer a holistic approach towards treating the source of the problem rather than the symptoms.

Does smoking promote a healthy habit?

Ask nearly any smoker or ex-smoker why cigarettes are so addicting and they’ll probably say, “It’s the nicotine.” But delve further into the hook, and what is revealed is that most smokers breathe quite differently while smoking than they do when they’re not, aiding in relaxation by simply engaging in the same inhale – hold – exhale rhythm, sometimes 500 times a day.

This pattern for many can be considered meditation, used for reflection or forward-thinking time, and when most people attempt to quit smoking cold turkey, they don’t even think about what they’re “missing.”

Yoga instructors are the first to tell you that breathing is core to a healthy lifestyle. Therefore, despite the fact that cigarettes are loaded with addictive chemicals and nicotine, the breathing pattern is part of the “escape” for smokers. more →

get over over-exercising

It should be obvious that more is not necessarily better.. but some of us just don’t get it because ‘more’ means.. more, right?

Well theres good news and bad news.

over-exercising can increases the release of cortisol (stress hormone) and decreases DHEA. Over training also increases free radical production and weakens the immune system…

** everything in moderation **

What’s up with the lower back?

I hate to be a buzz kill right before the holidays, but you need to shape up. For starters, STOP all that sitting, take off those clunky shoes, dump the poor posture and stop slacking in the exercise department.. and thats just for starters.

The above said cultural norms are the culprits for our aching backs among other things. In a super nutshell here’s why our backs get burdened so often..

Our weak core and poor posture result in a collapsed front body and a strained weak back body. Visualize the familiar collapsed front, rolled in shoulders, rounded back.. (think computer work, driving, TV watching, texting, ugh.. )
