Intuition is a phenomenon of mind, where the mind acquires knowledge without a use of reason. Intuition is seen as greater knowledge, knowledge beyond intelligence, opposite to our rational thinking. It is the ultimate state of humanity, as animals rely on their instinct, we humans have intuition. In Hinduism, intuition is referred as the glimpse of higher and wider self-knowledge. Connecting with our intuition, is an experience of coming into contact with Brahman, the ultimate reality in the universe. The eternal truth and bliss.

Cancer New Moon (7/4/2016)- Diving Into the Shadow: Finding Meaning In Our Greatest Gifts

Posted on 6/27/2016 by Alanna Kaivalya in Alanna Kaivalya New Moon Alchemical Ritual Cancer Moon Fourth of July

Cancer finds itself in its element during this new moon. Ruled by the moon, Cancer’s watery nature is in high gear during this new moon cycle, and you likely find that your emotions are ebbing and flowing at this time. As the bearer of the unconscious, the moon and Cancer work within us to house our shadow, drives, intuition…our greatest gifts.

Why You Should Start a Home Yoga Practice

Posted on 6/22/2016 by Valentina Rose in home practice Discipline Self-Practice Motivation Valentina Rosa

About a year ago I started practicing yoga on my own. Before, I was never one to practice alone. After all, why should I stay home and practice by myself when I can go to YogaWorks? You might be one of those people who also doesn’t want to miss out on the social vibe of public classes, and I don’t blame you. Or maybe you don’t feel like you know enough of yoga sequencing and alignment to be on your own. In that case, you can either take mental note of what you see in class and replicate it, or read up a sequence online. Even though safety is still priority, if you are looking for a simple, solid home practice you can figure a few poses out work for you specifically and get all the benefits of a self-imposed structure.

Summer solstice was on Monday, complete with a beautiful strawberry full moon (something I was informed of after the fact and apparently this strawberry stuff only happens once every 70 years!). Solstices and equinoxes are important to me because they signify a change in season. Just as Mother Nature changes throughout the seasons, so do human beings. Now is a good time to contemplate how your routines, practices, and needs are changing as we officially enter summer.

Wrists, Yoga & Pain-free Practice

Posted on 6/22/2016 by Adam Hocke in Adam Hocke Anatomy vinyasa flow technique Wrists Katja B

If you practice vinyasa flow yoga, the reality is you’re going to spend a lot of time bearing weight on the delicate structures of your hands and wrists. The problem is that this is not their intended function. For example, when was the last time, save a social media campaign, you walked to the grocery store on your hands? As the action of weight bearing through the hands is a bit unnatural, it can potentially introduce discomfort, pain, and even injury into your yoga practice.

Sagittarius Full Moon (6/20/16) - Aim True and Shoot for the Stars

Posted on 6/13/2016 by Alanna Kaivalya in Alanna Kaivalya Energy Sagittarius Full Moon Venus Jupiter

The Sagittarius full moon fuels our philosophical fantasies and launches us into a stratospheric search for wisdom and meaning. Nothing tickles the great archer’s fancy like higher pursuits in education, travel and religion or philosophy. As a centaur, Sagittarius loves to take aim at something that others find impossible, in order to shoot for the stars. Often overextending himself, the centaur can find himself spread thin. Our goal in this new moon is to aim high, but stay focused while keeping our energy levels up and engaging in self care.

Canvas of Writing and Yoga

At first, the idea of writing might seem as daunting as yoga is to some people- How do you start? Are there any rules? What exactly do you do? There are always these unsure moments when you try something new. Think back to the first time you were given a mat to unroll onto the ground and step onto bare feet. The setup that once felt so foreign might become a native part of how you begin your yoga practice now.

Get Your Yoga Out of My Asana

Posted on 6/7/2016 by J. Brown in yoga Asana Body Image Practice J. Brown Yoga

For many, it is has become important to distinguish between “asana,” or the performing of postures, and yoga. Both those who are inclined towards yoga as a fitness regimen, and those who embrace it as more than just exercise, find it necessary to clarify the intent and purpose behind their practice. This compartmentalisation, while convenient and often useful, brings with it a dilemma, the resolution to which determines what is actually possible with yoga.
