Written June 12, 2018 by Yoga Mountain

Published: Harvard Medical School 

Yoga, an ancient practice and meditation, has become increasingly popular in today’s busy society. For many people, yoga provides a retreat from their chaotic and busy lives. This is true whether you’re practicing downward facing dog posture on a mat in your bedroom, in an ashram in India or even in New York City’s Times Square.

Whole-Hearted Happiness – Acroyoga! by Crystal Hatzimichael

Written June 06, 2018 by Yoga Mountain

During the workshop, we will stretch, compress, twist and uplift the abdomen.  We will do this with breath and bodywork, asana, pranayama, kria, and bandha.  Experientially we clarify which abdominal muscles do what, how the psoas and diaphragm relate, how many diaphragms you have, what the health of the belly has to do with the health of the spine, and also a Kula Yoga sequence merging bandha work with vinyasa flow (kudos to Schuyler Grant).

Pranayama: May our Breath Be Our Prayer with Nubia Teixeira

Written April 23, 2018 by Yoga Mountain

Within the yogic context, the breath is much more than the oxygen we breathe.  The breath is the life force that enlivens our physical bodies and it is the power that awakens the latent abilities in our human incarnation.

It unites our inner and outer environments and it connects us to the sacred source of inspiration.By allowing this divine source to penetrate our awareness and our body through the senses and through the mind, we are communing with creation. In every cycle of spontaneous breath we can find an ...
