a question that we originally answered in 2001we often joke around here that we’re part of a “yoga cult,” but really, our practice of yoga (and meditation) is simple and direct. In fact, when we are home with oo, we do the same two routines every single morning. There is
no detail to them at all. They’re simple, they take no more than ten minutes, and they provide us with all the peace, strength, and calmness we require during the day.I’ll give an example. Let’s say you literally have absolutely zero time—you’re going somewhere and you haven’t done your forty-five-minutes-per-day
yoga routine for at least three or four days in a row. When it’s time to leave the house, flopping over the bed and winding up in downward-facing dog for thirty or forty minutes won’t happen.Here’s what you do: Pick one routine from the illustrations on this page, p. 34
(choose the sequence that seems relevant to what you might face as you leave your front door). From
how often should you do yoga a week?
Three to five times a week is a good start.how do you decide where to put the mat? in front of the couch?7. I simply find ourselves as low-key, embraceable action people inspiring just plain oh wow, we didit this way.8. We want ease and then solidity in order to
truly grasp what it is to take big actions intheate.r we want a rock solid yet simultaneously fluid state of being.These days we are in the midst of unfolding our yoga practice in a little different way.We’ve found our yoga practice becoming a bigger part of our lives, from getting
up earlier to hitthe mat before school duties, to saying good-bye to evenings at the office, it shows up more andmore.To help each yogi find her flow in this unfolding journey of asanas on the mat and in life, here weshare you some questions about your yoga flow, just for
consideration:WHO ARE YOU? Before you take action, what comes first is getting an overview, a clear look intoyourself. What are your values? How

how to activate pineal gland yoga?
We suggest three methods to awaken the pineal: Body, Sex, and Spirit.Start with a simple breathing exercise: place both the hands on the abdomen, inhale deeply, and hold air in your belly. The goal of this exercise is to achieve maximum expansion of the diaphragm and get the most air
into your lungs as possible. While air goes in, push your belly out(it will make sucking of the navel area easier), tighten the abdomen muscles, but expand your chest up and open up your shoulders. Holding your hand on your navel area, absorb your breath completely and squeeze after the
exhale. The same procedure is necessary with exhalation. Hold your inhale for a couple of seconds, then gently and smoothly exhale out, passing all the residual air from lungs. Do this for about 8 cycles then start over, it is not about quantity, but good quality breathing cycle that require
attention, good posture and stabilization (make it a meditation).There is no need to be in any special pose or sitting position. You can be standing up or laying down, or set your little home exercise where you will do it every evening before going to sleep. Do this exercise in
how to be a certified yoga instructor
yoga certification programsWhat Counts as a Yoga Certification?Benefits of CertificationWhat does certification provide that the yoga instructor training programme alone can’t already provide you with? Here are some benefits:• It gives you credentials. You can present yourself in a credible and trustworthy manner given to prospective clients; most people need
proof that you’ve undergone specialized training and possess relevant knowledge, skills and experience. Being duly accredited by reputable organizations validates these things (whether said credence is expected to reach their standards doesn’t matter, they know they’ll be respected).• It frees you from the negative connotations associated with self-certified instructors or
those who have plagiarized their training. If a certification is accredited and reliable, it means the process is ensuring competency on the part of the recipient rather than his ability to pay for the course or get around training requirements.• It makes preliminary screening more manageable. If you choose to
employ a certification body’s training requirement, applicants with lesser credentials can be filtered out without the need for looking at resumes or assessing them for specific traits. That

Yoga+Ball: How to Find the Center of Gravity in Your MarriagesExcerpt from “The Hunger Diaries”Stefan Pinto: All our stories are desperate.Buddhism is a very down to earth place. We’re steeped in suffering – we’re constantly talking about how the world and all it’s pleasures are fleeting. And how the innocent
and pure we are at birth is a waste. Buddhism isn’t something I practice or believe in. It is something I breathe. It’s who I am – as certain as the stars in my womb in these perilous times for us will ever be called soft and gentle. There is
no luxury and time. Only business and more time toward the imaginary and abusive heaven where everyone arrives unsatisfied, fat, old and dead.No one wants to do it but the time is nigh and we, the sane and modest are left with only this passion inside, this longing to reunite
hearts with the light of divinity. Our children and teachers come home from their daily voyage filled with tireless stories for us, their tired mothers and engineers – all of us ask for
how to breathe during yoga
The nose is the expert. The mouth needs to wake up. We need to train. We can only stay quiet for short periods. Using your nose is not a goal, but an exercise.You pick the exercises below that help you to breathe easier. The ones that fit you physically. If
a breathing in a particular way is stressful (holding your breath) or it hurt (e.g. your back), don’t do it. Just whisper: “OK” into your diaphragm and breathe normally.If a meditation is boring and without value, let go of it. Read an important book instead that’s relaxing. If you find
sitting still boring, try a mindfulness walking.Try nasal breathing. Listen to music or sounds (birds or rain for instance) that help you to focus on your breath. Relax and breathe freely with eyes closed. No expectations or demands! Discover yourself and new feelings. Breathe freely from your diaphragm. Feel your
body and breath. Use your left nostril (or your nose on the right side) if possible. Breath deeply and briefly through your nose (otherwise your stomach gets a bit tense!). If you use an
