Yoga Practice as a Tool to Combat Negative Self-Image

Readers, please enjoy this guest blog post by Melanie Klein, co-author of the new Yoga and Body Image. We struggled with negative body image most of our lives—running the gamut of diet fads and fitness trends. To call our pursuit of the beauty ideal an obsession is to put it mildly. And, sadly, our preoccupation […]

A “Thank You” to BKS Iyengar

BKS Iyengar passed away today. In the midst of a frantic morning I heard the news and suddenly paused, realizing the great impact one person can have on your life, society, and world. I first heard of him about 10 years ago when I started learning about yoga beyond the poses I mimicked in classes. […]

A Talk with Seane Corn: Yoga, Addiction, and Body Image

Last week I had the great pleasure of meeting Seane Corn, internationally known yoga instructor and one of twenty-five contributors to the up-coming book Yoga and Body Image. Seane was in town at The Yoga Center of Minneapolis for a five-day intensive she co-presented as part of her organization Off the Mat, Into the World, which […]

Finding Your Magic Sleeping Pill

Sleep. Is it your friend or your enemy? I know I’m far from the only one who suffers from the occasional monster of insomnia and I’ve been seeing more and more articles on the importance of sleep lately. Mehdi René’s 6 Tips for Waking Up Early and Getting Sh*t Done reminded me of something I […]

That Monkey Called ANXIETY

Anxiety. Just the word makes me tighten up my shoulders and lose my breath. More and more people are realizing and admitting to their experience with chronic anxiety. In a fast paced and depend-on-yourself society, it’s not hard to imagine why this unwelcome experience and condition is flourishing. We’re losing our breath. We can’t relax. […]

A Book That Needs to be Written

Are you familiar with Tantra? If you live in a Western culture, you probably know that Tantra is “that sex stuff.” It’s about “spiritualized sex,” the Kama Sutra, weird sex positions, and sex that lasts for hours. Didn’t Sting say so? (Okay, now he admits it was a joke.) Even in India, the birthplace of […]

Healthy Practice on the Fringe

I remember a time, not too long ago, when chiropractic care was not often covered by insurance. The impression that I received growing up was that the greater scientific community perceived the practice as quackery, that it hadn’t proven itself a worthy form of treatment. Even so, I came to embrace the world of complementary […]

Your Oh-So-Important (yet often forgotten) Self-Care

It’s always good to have goals and striving for your dreams makes you a better person. Right? So where do you draw the line and recognize when you’re maybe pushing things a little too far?  I am a busy-body, perfectionist, and sometimes work-aholic, so this is all something I’ve had practice with and failed at many times. When 3:00 rolls […]

Intention and Dedication instead of “I would if I could”

Watching someone you care about suffer through a painful struggle, whether physical or emotional, is a distressing place to be. The phrase, “If I could take your place I would” comes to mind and is a true expression of longing and love. Without the option of taking on suffering in someone’s place, we instead often […]

Secrets of the Kaula Circle

Many years ago there were two bookstores in Hollywood that I would frequent. One, just east of Cahuenga on Hollywood Blvd, was Gilbert’s Books. This was a full bookstore that offered both new and used books. It also had a large selection of occult books, some of which were quite unusual and rare. I’ve heard […]
