Make Yoga a Habit!

January 15, 2014

Make Yoga a HabitKundalini Yoga recognizes the soul as perfect, with no need for change, redemption or purification. As human beings, our lives are governed by our habits – good or bad. Things can change by our choices and our actions. We do sadhanas (committed prayers) and kriyas (techniques or practices within a yoga discipline to achieve a specific result) to change and challenge ourselves.

Research has shown that it takes 40 days to make or break a habit. If you have been trying to get to classes more often or just make time for practice, take the 40 day-challenge and make a commitment to practice at least once a day, twice or every day, whatever you think you can accomplish. Reward yourself and acknowledge your intentions and progress along the way. Let’s make yoga a habit.

November is National Gratitude Month

November 26, 2013

November has been designated National Gratitude Month. I think most of us are guilty of only thinking about what we are grateful for during the Thanksgiving holidays. GratitudeCan we make it a part of our lives the other 11 months? Research shows that grateful people have higher levels of happiness, less stress and depression and more satisfied with their lives. They tend to be more positive and better able to handle life’s obstacles.

“No longer forward nor behind
I look in hope or fear;
But, grateful, take the good I find,
The best of now and here.”

~ John Greenleaf Whittier

Yoga for “Computer Hunch”

November 20, 2013

Dealing with “computer hunch” is becoming a more common problem today for Americans! A great way to combat the damage to your back and shoulders is with Dandasana, also known as Staff Pose. Staff Pose involves sitting on the floor with your legs extended straight in front of you. Curl your toes up and rest your hands on the floor with fingers pointing forward.

Within this pose, you can shift your hips forward, lift your ribs, and drop your shoulders away from your ears. These movements are a great way to remove tension and keep your back happy.
