Thank you: 21 Days of Gratitude

Posted by on Nov 20, 2015 in Evolution Blog | 0 comments

We are very grateful. At the beginning of November we created a shared online gratitude journal—such a great use of Facebook! In this open event, 21 Days of Gratitude, one hundred people shared their daily gratitudes. Some shared little things like gratitude for coffee or a full night’s sleep, others shared really big things such as gratitude for learning how to endure terrible loss. It was a wonderful journey together – and one we hope you will continue on your own and with friends and family. Science tells us that gratitude improves your health and even changes your brain – creating new neurological pathways (the yogis call it Sadhana...

Yoga Twists, Myth, and Your Body

Posted by on Nov 13, 2015 in Evolution Blog | 0 comments

Any fanatical yogi will tell you that twists are among the most delicious, juicy, wonderful and sublime poses of a yoga practice. Newbies are not always so taken with the Twist.

Deepen your yoga practice has many meanings. When it comes to the Yoga Wall deepening your practice refers to deeper poses, to be sure, but the greater depth is achieved through decompressing the spine and expanding the breath. Imagine the feeling of gravity releasing your spine while you quietly breathe, reversing the effects of sitting and standing all day long. Wouldn’t it be great to do a Warrior II pose with support from a strap, opening the hips while you just relax? Would you like to hold downward dog with minimal effort, working on shoulder blade engagement while your lumbar spine and hips open and release? If any of...

Chakra Yoga: pathway to a little more self-awareness

Posted by on Oct 21, 2015 in Evolution Blog |

Chakras are energy centers within the body (along the spine and in the head), that correspond with the body’s meridians as recognized in traditional Chinese medicine. The Yogic Chakra system is a thousand-year-old system of understanding and influencing the health of the body, emotions, endocrine system, hormones, mind, and spirit. There are seven major chakras, each is associated with a gland and major nerve plexus within the body. While some associate the chakras with mystical powers like ESP, telepathy, and astral travel, others simply see them as related to the healthy function and structure of our tissues and organs. We read chakras (usually unknowingly) all the time. We all...
