Farting in yoga class? What to do when this happens and how to prevent It.

Posted by on Jul 11, 2014 in Yoga Health, Yoga Teacher training | 0 comments

When I am just a student in the class and someone accidentally lets a noisy one out I giggle and laugh and look in the direction of the lethal missile.  Now that I do a lot of teaching and am not the student that often, when someone in my class accidentally lets one out, then I have to swallow my laughter and giggle and not even look in the direction of the explosion.  I remember one time, that this guy kept cutting his chakra cheese fairly audibly and we couldn’t all ignore it if we tried and he had to say “ Sorry, Excuse me”  a few times....

Yoga & Meditation Music and Song Reviews – Tunes to Downdog, Chill or Get It On To

Posted by on Jun 25, 2014 in Couples Retreat, Couples Yoga, eStore, Meditation, Romantic Date Ideas, Stuff I like, Yoga Music, Yoga Teacher training | 0 comments

Top  Yoga Meditation Music and Yoga Songs I play in Class In a yoga class setting up a vibe with lights, music and space is such a key part of the experience.  It really takes you to a sacred place and I tend to get all bejiggety is my sound system is not working.  Whenever I am teaching at a new place or subbing I make sure to spend awhile understanding how their music system works (I’m not technically inclined and tend to panic when the music won’t start) I tend to play the same 30 CDs all the time but I love picking up new ones all the...

Stiff Neck, Tight Shoulders and Knee Pain – Jill Miller’s Yoga Therapy Tune Up DVDs

Posted by on Jun 12, 2014 in Alternative Health, Yoga DVDs, & Podcasts | 0 comments

I don’t like to be a hypochondriac but I have been plagued with neck and shoulder pain for about the last 10 years.  I’ve seen countless doctors, practitioners, acupuncturists, healers, physical therapist, holistic doctors, chiropractors, massage therapists, hypnotherapists, counselors, neurologists, dentists etc and was not able to get any long-term relief or manageability around this chronic pain. (I did sometimes get short-term relief but it was usually a few hours)  I’ve spent in the tens of thousands of dollars trying...

Being Bootylicious without being Broke – Natural Organic Beauty

I’ve been making my hottie hellenic hubby a bit wonky with all the natural beauty treatments I have been dabbling with lately.  He’s actually limited me to no more than one beauty experiment a day (what century are we in that our men can try to impose rules on us anyway?)  As I write this I am making my own rosewater from roses I plucked from our garden.  Here are some wallet-friendly beauty treatments that I have been experimenting with lately.  Most of these things you will probably have in your house anyway so no need to go out...

On July 19, 1910, the governor of the U.S. state of Washington proclaimed the nation’s first “Father’s Day.” However, it was not until 1972, 58 years after President Woodrow Wilson made Mother’s Day official, that the day became a nationwide holiday in the United States.   Mother’s Day is a holiday honoring motherhood that is observed in the United States and...

Guest Blog by Lee A. Bowers, Ph.D.  An excerpt from the book –  Divorce Proof Your Marriage Before You Say “I Do” – 7 Essential Conversations. Big Questions in Life There are many questions to ask and answer when building a foundation for a life together.  It’s important to find out where your partner stands on money, sex, gender-roles, politics, religion and family.

Want sweetness? Too lazy and it’s too hot. Grilled peaches.

Posted by on Jun 1, 2014 in Alternative Health | Comments Off

Grilled peaches: A lazy cook’s dream. The sugar-plus-heat combination makes for a seductive caramelizing effect.  Peaches are a natural for the grill, where quick cooking brings out juiciness and intensifies sweetness. Start with peaches that are firm with just a little give when you give them a gentle squeeze with your whole hand. Cut the peaches in half and pit them. You can grill entire peach halves or cut them into wedges. Cook peaches over a medium fire on both sides until grill marks show and peaches are tender but not falling...

The Truth About Your Beauty Products. My Review of No More Dirty Looks.

Posted by on May 29, 2014 in Beauty, Reviews | 1 comment

Natural beauty organically, how do you find it?  Toxins and poisons in cosmetic and personal hygiene products….how do you avoid them? Why am I slathering formaldehyde on my eyes? The book the Beauty Industry DOES NOT want you to read. I run away from the perfume counters when I go to the department stores.  I’m actually terrified those waif-girls, dressed in all black with their hair slicked up into a bun will spray me with the latest scent du jour.   When they do that, I will not only smell like I just stepped out of a whorehouse, but...

Jedi Mind Trick – The Yogic Way

Posted by on May 22, 2014 in Spirituality | 0 comments

Every wonder why we have the same thoughts every day?  Every day the same fears?  The same hopes?  Why is it that 99% of our thoughts are the same thoughts every single day?  Do you wonder how much power your thoughts have?  Ever wondered how you could create new thoughts? I’ve been reading one of Wayne Dyer’s books on and off over the last 6 months, although other spiritual leaders such as the ones who wrote “The Secret”, Deepak Chopra, Tony Robbins, Lynn Grabhorn who are all about of gratitude and self-love.   I...

Iyengar Yoga Poses & Classes in Philadelphia – Training, Anatomy and Sanskrit

Posted by on May 9, 2014 in Iyengar Yoga, Yoga For Weight Loss, Yoga Health, Yoga Teacher training | 0 comments

I’ve been doing yoga for over 15 years but I only recently discovered Iyengar yoga. After getting familiar with William Broad’s, Science of Yoga book and hearing all the ire it got for it’s chapter about injuries I wanted to learn more about this not-very well known kind of yoga. Many yoga teacher training programs do not have rigorous standards for anatomy or bio-mechanics or how to work with students that have injuries or other limiting conditions.  I often did quite a bit of research on my own on how to address working...
