Energy Kick Cacao Bars

By Olive Aguas Posted in Food, Glorious Food Monday, 21 August 2017

My Raw Cacao Energy Bars.  Make a batch and so you can always grab one on the go. These will last a while so keep them in your fridge or freezer.  Raw cacao has an incredible amount of natural energy packed in it so it is a perfect pick me up snack or I like to enjoy them as a shot of energy before a night out since I’m a sober bunny. With raw cacao you can party all night without a hang over.  It is the number 1 source of magnesium, it supports the heart, increases brainpower, relaxes menstrual cramping, relaxes muscles, increases flexibility, de-stresses us, helps build strong bones and increases alkalinity.  Try and consume 1 tablespoon a day of cacao nibs, powder or butter a day. Ingredients: 1 1/2 cup medjool dates 1/3 cup cacao powder 2 tablespoons chia seeds 2 tablespoons cacao nibs 2 tablespoons maca powder 1/2 teaspoon vanilla powder 1/2 cup slivered or ground almonds

Inside HOME

By Jill Satterfield Posted in Lifestyle Saturday, 19 August 2017

Inside-HOME
As I travel from one place to another, I am increasingly grateful to know that as long as I am safe and warm, I can be at ease. But when I think of ‘home’, intially I might find myself a bit homesick, or missing my familiar surroundings. When I remind myself that my true home is inside and has nothing to do with my external environment, I can relax again. It’s normal to wander from home – whether it be metaphorical or literal. Where we go, how long we stray and when we return is the basis for a practice in and of itself. My practice these past 5+ months has been to remember not to leave ‘home’ for too long lest I feel lost with no map and turned in circles (which I literally am in each new city). This practice of ‘coming home’ then, is one that I try to maintain with my heart open as much as possible while I am off the cushion and in the world. I am finding it a true life practice – practical, meaningful...

Emotional Pain Chart

By Irina Verwer Posted in Lifestyle Monday, 14 August 2017

Emotional-Pain-Chart
A while ago, I stumbled upon an emotional pain chart that showed remarkable resemblances to the yogic chakra philosophy. I love it when different theories meet and overlap.I also love this emotional pain chart as it is a quick help to see what emotion is linked to certain discomforts in your body. Be mindful though: don't use this chart to judge yourself or others, and always use your intuition to feel if the mentioned link is right in your specific case. It's a guideline, not something set in stone. You can view the full-size emotional pain chart by clicking on the little picture.The information for this chart comes from 'Heal Your Body A-Z' by Louise L. Hay. 

¿Integridad en el Yoga?

By Carolina Daza Posted in Yoga Sunday, 13 August 2017

¿Integridad-en-el-Yoga?
¿Qué tan en serio debemos tomarnos nuestra práctica de Yoga ? El nuevo año solar ha llegado. 2014 lentamente avanza a medida que los motores de nuestros corazones y mentes se adaptan. Algunos tomaron vacaciones, mientras muchos otros siguieron trabajando y algunos cuantos se dedicaron a profundizar la prácita del Yoga. Recientemente, asistí a los Satsangs en Ashtanga Yoga Paris dirigidos por Linda Munro y Gérald Disse, creadores y profesores de Yoga, que me hicieron reflexionar profundamente acerca de la integridad en nuestro Yoga. A medida que sigo estudiando y avanzando mi práctica, me siento más conectada a mi centro de equilibrio, a mi corazón. Considero que un verdadero practicante de Yoga es aquel que no se espera hasta el inicio o fin de un ciclo para traer cambios en su vida. A medida que nos tomamos más en serio nuestro Yoga, nos comprometemos a evolucionar en nuestras vidas, a sembrar constantemente semillas; internas que nos acercan a nuestros corazones y las externas que inspiran cambios positivos en los demás. A medida que nos conectamos más con nuestros corazones nos volvemos más conscientes de...

The Maturing Yoga Industry

By Brook McCarthy Thursday, 10 August 2017

The-Maturing-Yoga-Industry
Outrage sparked by the recent New York Times Magazine, ‘How Yoga Can Wreck Your Body’ was as impassioned as it was predictable. Yet other, quieter voices responded ‘of course’. Any physical activity, from jogging to sneezing, can cause harm, and underqualified and inexperienced teachers have the capacity to harm in any situation, not just a yoga class. The silver lining of the article fall-out is the introspection it inspires as yoga teachers worldwide examine whether they could be doing things better. For Yoga Teacher Trainer Mark Breadner of Yogacoach who spent several years coaching elite sportspeople, it’s a matter of balance. “Joints need to be mobilised first, then stabilised, then strengthened,” says Mark. “If practitioners jump straight into strong poses without working first on balance and flexibility, or if poses are held too long, then yes, injury may occur. Healthy muscles, ligaments and tendons are in balance.”

Raisin' the frequency

By Sonia Ribas Tuesday, 08 August 2017

Raisin'-the-frequency
Research has proven that healthy bodies vibrate at 60 MHz or higher. At lower frequencies, the immune system is compromised and we can experience deseases and feelings of struggle, anger, victimhood, shame, etc. At high frequency, we are more likely to experience bliss, happiness, joy, hope, balance, enlightement, unconditional love, feeling a part of all things. In the persuit of Feeling Good we try to achieve an incredibly high frequency. There are numerous methods for increasing frequency, all based in doing things that tap into our hearts and being in the presence of people that resonate with us.   

9 tips for Home Yoga Practice, by Kino MacGregor

By Kino MacGregor Posted in Yoga Monday, 07 August 2017

9-tips-for-Home-Yoga-Practice,-by-Kino-MacGregor
1. Place—Create a sacred space and practice in the same spot every time. Place a photo of your teacher in front of your mat so that you are reminded of him/her when you practice. When I practice at home I see my teacher and I get inspired to practice. Sometimes I pretend that he is in the room with me and it definitely motivates me. If you have the space leave your mat unrolled to claim the space for practice from other things in your life. It’s better if you have a spare room that you can devote only to yoga, but not everyone has that luxury. Just the space of a yoga mat can be a precious resource so claim it as an altar to the spiritual space within yourself and your life. On days when you don’t feel like practicing just go and stand on your yoga mat at your scheduled practice time and see what happens. If the energy is strong in that spot it will pull you forward into the practice. If you change into your...

Find the Silence

By Elena Brower Posted in Lifestyle Friday, 04 August 2017

Been exploring this in asana classes in NYC recently: find the silence everywhere. Locating the silence in our bodies, as a global experience, throughout the form of the pose, feels like a healing. In our interactions, we can find the silence in our gestures, our words, even our actions. We can find the silence in our eyes, in our thoughts. Find the silence everywhere. See how that feels.

Poverty and profit: the path of a 21st century yogi

By Brook McCarthy Thursday, 03 August 2017

Poverty-and-profit:-the-path-of-a-21st-century-yogi
Ah, yoga teaching in the 21st century. The path of poverty and virtue, right? The road to yoga rock stardom? Or to creating sustainable, 21st century business? Competition among yoga teachers in Australia’s big cities is getting tough. In my role in online marketing specialising in yoga and wellbeing businesses, I’ve heard from countless experienced teachers with established businesses who are seeing a serious decrease in their business due to the increasing number of yoga teachers about. This is especially the case in Sydney where, anecdotally, there are more yoga teachers per neighbourhood than anywhere in the world. I’ve seen and heard it all: from severe aversion to discuss pay, to expenses introduced by a studio after a visiting teacher’s workshop is over; from unacceptably long periods waiting to be paid, to an inability to write an invoice. I’ve been privy to yoga teachers being pressured to sign contracts that severely limit their opportunities to teach outside a studio (while said studio doesn’t provide enough classes to make a livable wage), and studios whose teachers frequently request more remuneration when their student numbers are...
