Post Run Flow #yoga
Running has many physical and as well as psychological benefits, but man does it take a toll on your hips!! Here’s a little flow I just practiced to keep things nice and loose ;) Start with a few rounds of Surya Namaskara, focusing on each inhale and exhale. Move into Virabhadrasana I on the right - hold for 5 breaths. Follow with Virabhadrasana II - hold for 5 breaths. On an exhale...

Hatha Flow Playlist - November 19, 2011
Between being a little busy bee of late and the temperature taking a dip, vacay is definitely on my mind! I try not to be predictable, but once I’m on a sandy beach two of music staples are Jack Johnson and Bob Marley. It’s been awhile since I’ve played Jack so I decided to turn to In Between Dreams for some inspiration! Hatha Flow - November 19, 2011 by reena kudhail on...

Set Your Own Standards for Personal Success
Anyone who has been to a school reunion knows the pressure to look successful. In business, we often define external yardsticks and measure performance against them. But that same logic is not always appropriate when it comes to measuring the success of your professional life. As long as you use external standards to evaluate your success, you are guaranteed dissatisfaction—you’ll...

Always expect the unexpected - November 5, 2011...
One lesson from my teacher training that really rang true today was to always expect the unexpected. As I walked to the studio, winter was definitely in the air and the city seemed a little more alive than it usually is at that hour, which should have been a hint that the class was going to be a little different! With a class filled with beginners, more advanced practitioners and a very pregnant...

Open Hips are Happy Hips - November 3, 2011 Hatha...
Our hips take so much abuse throughout the day, unfortunately, the majority of it is caused by prolonged sitting. In a time when so many of us are tied to our desks, or are forced to commute hours everyday our hips are constantly closed causing the strong muscles around the hips to tighten up and lose their flexibility. A balanced yoga practice can help open your hips, giving you a solid...

Picture this: You’re at home or at work, and someone you know – your grandfather or your co-worker – suddenly collapses. You realize that he has stopped breathing and his heart has stopped beating. In other words, he is in cardiac arrest, a serious medical emergency. Would you know what to do? Chances are, if someone in your family experiences cardiac arrest, it will happen at home. Are you...
Celui qui ne risque rien, n’a rien.– Rire c’est risquer de paraître heureux, pleurer c’est risquer de paraître fragile. Exposer ses sentiments c’est risquer d’exposer son moi profond. Aimer c’est risquer de ne pas être aimé en retour. Vivre c’est risquer de mourir. Essayer c’est risquer...
