Learning How To Breathe
We all do it. Everyday. All the time. But, do we really pay attention to breathing? Last week, I learned how to breathe better. No pranayama. No alternate nostrils. No 32 second retentions. Nothing fancy at all.
Just plain vanilla inhales and exhales.
Get Off The Coupon Cycle
Get Off The Coupon Cycle Groupon, Living Social, Gilt Groupe…not a week goes by when I don’t get a coupon from one of these organizations offering cheaply discounted yoga classes. The last one I got was for a monthly unlimited at an established midtown studio for $39.
Yoga and Politics
Recently Off the Mat and the Huff Po provided stress relief at the Republican and Democratic Conventions and next week Yoga for New York gears up to celebrate the work they’ve accomplished with Albany lawmakers. The Daily Beast reported that yoga teachers have a high incidence of donating money to the Obama campaign.
Desire and Aversion
One of the great truths of yoga is that there is always oppositional force; a sun and a moon, a masculine and feminine, a negative and positive, a pose and counterpose.
At YogaCity NYC we believe in not only celebrating the varied practices on our home-town turf, but also reminding our readers to beware of the temptations that pull you off the path.
