On yoga and loneliness (the scourge of our times)

In this morning’s post, I mentioned one of the benefits of yoga is the relief of loneliness.  This is not often mentioned when people talk about yoga.  Mostly, yoga is said to relieve back pain, insomnia, sluggish digestion and various other physical ailments.  Those of us who practice yoga with any degree of seriousness know Read More

New Year, new you

Good morning dear yogis, or yogis-to-be! Wouldn’t you like to make 2018 the year that you take up yoga?  Yoga is so ubiquitous now, it seems almost silly not to at least try? But why should yoga be everywhere, and now?  Because it complements any other form of physical education or sport, but can also Read More

On balance – Part II

In yesterday’s post, I hardly had time to get started.  Talking about the balancing act between prâna and apâna, I likened it to the accumulation and ridding of material things.  I wanted to finish the post by discussing the IN and the OUT of yoga practice. Most of us arrive at a yoga practice carrying Read More

On balance – Part 1.

Ambient music for yoga

I came across this lovely offering on Youtube.  If Christmas Day has been busy and your mind-body is revved up with rajas or bogged down in tamas, look for sattwa on your mat and in your heart.  After you have digested your food, do a gentle practice, give thanks and be joyful.  Whatever meaning Christmas Read More

Pero leche con ColaCao ó Nescafé y galletas de trigo, a pesar de ser un desayuno muy común en España, no es la mejor opción para una dieta saludable.  Sobre todo, un desayuno así tiene poco aporte en proteína, un elemento imprescindible a la Read More

Hey loves, It’s BioCultura this weekend in Madrid and I am going!  I have only been to this event once, in Valencia.  It was very busy and most entertaining. It was there that I met the sales rep from Hyla, the amazing air filter and vacuum cleaner that I use to clean my house.  I Read More
