“Ditch social media and my T.V. for a week... What?” Depending on who you are, and how much you use technology in your daily routine, a digital detox might seem either insane or too easy. It’s not until you begin to experience the highs and lows of a digital detox rollercoaster that you realize just how addicting social media and television really are. No matter who you are, if you’re living in this developed, 21st-century country, chances are you probably need a digital detox.

Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie

Heavy Metals. We’re not talking about Def Leppard or Metallica today, ladies and gentlemen! We’re talking about toxic heavy metals such as mercury, aluminum, copper, cadmium, nickel, arsenic, and lead, that we’re all exposed to on a daily basis. How are we exposed? Surprisingly we come into contact with heavy metals in everyday life – through the air we breathe (think vehicle emissions and other environmental pollutants), in the food we eat (non-organic foods that have been treated with pesticides and herbicides), if you have dental fillings made from mercury-containing amalgam, and certain types of large fish (such as king mackerel, swordfish, orange roughy, marlin, tuna steaks, and canned ‘white’ albacore).

Poses to Help You Energize

Posted on 12/5/2016 by Adam Hocke in Prana Adam Hocke Practice Backbends Energizing Poses

How do you energize? There isn’t a shortage of energizing yoga classes or sequences, but I often wonder what we are actually asking of our students and ourselves when we practice with this goal. Often an energizing yoga class is just fast and hard. When done a bit more mindfully, it can focus on poses or breath patterns that stimulate and excite the nervous system into a more focused, instead of frantic state. My essential energizing poses, which find their way into my energizing classes, tell the chest to expand and invite an empowered inhalation. They connect me to the ground but suggest a rise of vital energy or prana upwards.

8 Mindful Ways to Curb Sugar Cravings

I was recently hanging out with some old friends and mentioned that I’m living a nearly refined-sugar free life. (I say nearly because I believe in balance and, on occasion, sharing a chocolate croissant with my family is worth it.) They gasped. While I’ve always attempted a clean diet, it was shocking for them to imagine their former fro-yo lovin’ friend off of sugar. I chalk it up to one of the things that a breast cancer diagnosis did for me – scared me straight off the sugar crack.

No one expects someone to be seasoned after merely two hundred hours, and technological advancements have enabled newfound access and resources to anyone with an internet connection.

Gratitude. We say it. We know it. But how deep does it run? We all know that gratitude is a great thing to practice. And we might even acknowledge our gratitude from time to time. However, it seems like such a hype word and/or "cool" thing to "do" these days. I want to take this a step further. Instead of being grateful, can we live grateful? It's an exceptional difference and for those who live in gratitude, instead of paying it a weekly visit, know exactly what I am talking about.

Be A Spiritual Warrior: Stand In Your Truths and Strengths

Posted on 11/15/2016 by YogaDownload .com in Strength truth Path of Yoga Spiritual Warrior Bhagavad Gita Arjuna YogaDownload.com

When we are in harmonious times, it’s easy to express our beliefs and our truth. Many of us yogis surround ourselves with like-minded people seeking to live life on a higher vibration. We choose to focus on the positive and live from a place of compassion and love. Practicing these principles on the yoga mat strengthens our resolve to practice them off the mat. But how do we stand in our truth when it is challenged from all sides? How do we remain peaceful and positive when there’s no choice but to fight to preserve our dignity, our values, and our beliefs? The concept of being a warrior and fighting doesn’t have to mean that we are denying our spirituality.

Taurus Full Super Moon (11/14/16) — Heal, Ground, and Grow Your Light

Posted on 11/9/2016 by Alanna Kaivalya in Alanna Kaivalya Get into nature Alchemical Ritual Taurus Full Moon Sensitivity

This Taurus full moon is the most grand and illuminating super moon of the century, so far! A super moon causes the earth’s tides to be stronger, and it does the same thing to us. We are energetically pulled by the moon. With this super moon in Taurus, we are pulled in the directions of establishing our financial security, increasing our self-confidence, elevating our sensuality and connecting to the earth. The Taurus full moon shines brightly on to our fundamental basics–the ground we stand on, how we support ourselves, and how we feel the world around us. This presents us a good opportunity to indulge in self care, heighten our sensitivity to nature, and connect with mother earth. Go outside in the moonlight and feel the steady ground underneath your feet.

What is GPS Consciousness?

Posted on 11/7/2016 by Harmonjot Kaur in Intuition Kundalini Yoga Guru Jagat GPS Consciousness Navigate Your World Harmonjot Live with Authenticity

“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.” – Oscar Wilde. I love this spot-on observation by one of the most outlandish “livers” of all time. It seems to perfectly express the epidemic anxiety felt by most yogis, artists and seekers, i.e. those wired for more than the status quo. For us that have the taste buds for exhilaration and real life, nothing less will do. And when that fullness of living feels in any way out of reach, angst and frustration are the natural resultants.
