Feel Better Now

Feel Better Now

Hi Friends, Intentions are a powerful thing. They exists and direct our lives whether we are consciously making them or moving along without them. When we are clear about our intent day-to-day, weekly, yearly, or even for our whole life, we can anchor in the seat of our intuition and the efforts we put out in our life become clear, direct, and powerful. I hope you join me in a commitment to 30 days of Intents beginning today. Whether you intent to feel connected, practice yoga, meditate daily, or see the good in others, watch what happens in your day…

A Message For Yoga Teachers & Practicers

  Hey yoga teachers! The best use of your time is probably not in teaching people to do poses.   Yoga has tremendous potential. It can stand alongside Western medicine as a legitimate path to health. It can replace Western pharmaceuticals as a successful path to happy! It can be unrivaled as a path to an inspired life.   You have tremendous potential, to health, to happy, and to inspiring the people around you. Start by inspiring yourself. Use your yoga to get into you, rather than into poses.   Hey everyone! The best use of your yoga time is…

Yoga Is An Inside-Out Job

  I just watched a video of a "yoga teacher" thumping from headstand to wheel, then lurching back to headstand. Sensible comments question safety. "Yoga teacher" asserts that done in "correct alignment" this is quite safe. She'll even be posting an explanation of this alignment soon in Yoga Journal (a publication that states you must have a guru to progress in yoga). Of course, she's wrong. And this isn't unique to her.   She's just doing what is much too common in the yoga community now: pushing and struggling against her body and her mind to get into poses. This needs…
The Magic is Inside

The Magic is Inside

Hi Friends, I'm writing to you from Singapore! I'm on a bit of an Asian tour having a blast meeting internet-real life friends, leading Strala classes, and celebrate connecting and expanding. It's so touching to hear everyone's stories about how moving with ease and practicing with the freedom to explore has changed their lives. Body pain cured, emotional stress dissolved, and what's left is happy people with lots of energy living out amazing, radiant lives. It's not yoga that's the magic, it's about how you practice. When you allow yourself the freedom to move your body how it feels good, explore…

Don’t Try To Get Flexible

Trying to get flexible? Don't try too hard. Everyone knows a good stretch is nice before and after a run, while you're traveling, or just as a great way to break up your day. As with most things, How you "stretch" will determine what you get. As a start, let go the idea that stretching - in a way that uses muscle to force other muscle to lengthen - leads to flexibility. It doesn't! Static, forceful stretching has been part of the usual athletic training regiment for decades. Not any more. As with most scientific facts, facts change. Methods change…
