OM music recomendation

I played a track with a beautiful vocal OM in class today and several wanted to know what it was. The particular track is called OM.

Here’s the artist’s site, Lex Van Someren and then a few youtube clips:

Natural Movement: Squat pose

While its true that a yoga practice does not provide all the movement a body needs, it does provide most of the natural human movements including the squat. What’s the big deal about squatting? malasana-199x300 Continue reading

Myth-busting: Yoga is the only kind of movement I need

Yoga is the only kind of movement one needs. Is that true? Let’s look at a standard, garden-variety yoga class: inside a room, on a mat, for about an hour, two or three times a week. The student moves forward, back, bending, squatting, lunging, and some twisting. And while this IS beneficial and healthy, it does not fulfill the body’s movement needs. yogaeaglesm Continue reading

Myth-busting: do my organs twist in a deep twist?

For students not knowing the body anatomy, they might think its possible to have the organs themselves twist or wring out in a particularly deep twist. And teachers, not being mindful of their words, might give this as a metaphor to imagine what’s happening inside. But it’s not true, and not physically possible to have the organs of the body twist or wring out.

Year of the Red Fire Monkey

Its a fun tradition at Rexburg yoga to take a class and celebrate the Chinese New Year. This year brings in the energy of the Red Fire Monkey. Without knowing anything about the symbolic meaning of this year, one can guess that with a combination of red fire and monkeys, its something wild, passionate, unpredictable and lively.

Balance – a reasonable expectation

While achieving an amazing balancing feat like we sometimes see in advertising is unrealistic for the average person, a reasonable expectation for a regular yoga practice is improved overall balance.

While there are many causes for loss of balance, a common one as we age is “use it or lose it.” As busy and distracted as we are during an average day, we probably don’t take time to mindfully balance and move out of the normal plane of movement. A regular yoga practice can help use and strengthen those tissues, muscles, nerves, and bones needed to balance.

Myth busting: I can’t touch my toes

A frequent excuse for those who want to take a yoga class but feel inadequate to even start is that they are not flexible enough or that they cannot touch their toes. So we will start the year busting that myth!

Yoga: What do you expect?

We’ve all seen them – adverts or magazines with an outlandish yoga posture, or yoga used to sell products. Many of these are totally unrealistic and frankly ridiculous. As I find them around the internet, I will post a few. These images contribute to the expectations we have for a yoga practice.
