What is a yoga practice good for? Although it is often touted for its ability to help people improve their physical strength and flexibility, it also reduces stress in the process. A regular yoga practice boosts mindfulness, allowing people to think more clearly.
The super brain yoga benefits come with a lot of details, each one showing how brain function can be improved with regular yoga practice. Although yoga for concentration and memory is what sold it to practically everyone, there is so much more in yoga that people can love it for.
The improvement of one's mental health is one of the things to love about yoga. Most of the time, the concentration keeps people motivated to live in the moment....
Do you believe in power animals? They say every person has his own spirit animal. Your animal spirit guide serves as the teacher or messenger who provides you with an extra layer of protection in this lifetime.
Your spirit animal also serves as your guide to help you make the right choices in life. Their role is to provide inspiration and comfort, especially at times of confusion. They also send important messages to you during times of need.
If you google “my soul animal,” or something to that effect, you’ll find several silly quizzes that may or may not be accurate. What you should really do is draw your attention to the different aspects of your being and examine them closely.
What do you think is your spirit animal?
How do you get kids to be excited about yoga? When a yoga teacher learns a lot about teaching kids yoga classes, they feel extra excited to go out and teach. With all the excitement and enthusiasm that they feel, their nerves and commitment simply go with the flow.
But then, despite their knowledge of yoga's benefits for kids, there is something about the idea that makes yoga teachers wonder if it is something they could ever do. Is it possible to have kids engage in an activity that most adults find interesting yet challenging to do?
While these teachers may have more experience teaching adults or teens, teaching kids yoga is a whole different story. It is different from teaching art classes or painting, where you can let the children pretty much do what they want. It is a whole new experience compared to teaching other ages.
And like every good yoga teacher, you have just got to learn how to tap on your intuition and allow it to guide...

How far does the Universe go? What is beyond the farthest galaxy? Is it just vast nothingness? I know this Universe is huge, but compared to all of the possibilities I could imagine, the way we view our Universe actually seems rather limiting. Even if it were a quadrillion-trillion lightyears of galaxies, it still doesn't seem all that vast compared with what it could be. Why is the Universe not filled with flying fish? Or galactic trees? Or alternative laws of physics? I know these ideas are absurd, but it seems odd that a thing within the Universe can imagine more possibilities than what the infinite Universe possesses. Doesn't that break the laws of logic? It feels like the Universe should be too big for me to even comprehend its possibility, considering I am just a speck in size.
Suppose then the Universe is infinite. I like this concept because it feels both elegant in its simplicity yet equally...
Our liberation and transcendence truly happen through revelation. The word itself stems from the meaning "the disclosure of information to man by a divine or supernatural agency," as well as “unveiling” or “uncovering” of sorts. And as we’ve seen so far, humanity is undergoing an exponential increase in veils being lifted lately, and we are seeing life being stirred up and changed like never before. One analogy we might use here is as if humanity has been in the dark for so long, isolated by socioeconomic and cultural divides - and yet with modern technology, it would seem as though the lights are collectively turning on - but there is so much light, all at once - that it is blinding to us. Despite our access to so much information today, we are still blind… that is, while we allow time for our eyes to adjust. Yet, the root of revelation doesn’t just speak to veils lifted, but our disclosure from a divine origin.

How do you make that significant shift from a life of addiction to a life of practicing yoga? There have been numerous programs involving yoga for recovery, but very little is known about how it does its magic.
While this Eastern tradition of healing may improve physical health, it has also become a great way to help find mental, emotional, and spiritual healing. This is the reason why a lot of institutions incorporate yoga and meditation for recovery.
It would help if you introduced yoga and mindfulness meditation into your recovery program early on. As you progress, yoga and meditation therapy should become a part of your regular practice. When you are ready to return to your normal life, not only will you have recovered from your drug or alcohol addiction, but you will have found a practice that will help you deal with the stress of the real world.
Early recovery for addicts can bring about...
How do you spend most of your time? Do you spend it at work doing what others expect of you? Do you spend as much time with your family? The truth is that you spend most of your time doing neither of these.
Technically, you spend most of your time with yourself. This is why life mantras are essential because they help you keep yourself together, especially during trying times. And because you are the source of love and light for yourself, you have to be very careful about the words and the tone you use when speaking to yourself.
Your internal dialogue should speak of affirmations for self-love. You cannot be telling yourself you cannot do something and still expect it to have the same effect. What you tell yourself after a disappointment should embody affirmations for confidence.
Words have power, and that's why you should carefully consider every word you use. The language you use when speaking to yourself is a reflection of how you feel...
When was the first time you heard the word "namaste?" Like most of the others who have become familiar with the term, it is the word that signals the end of a yoga session. The yoga namaste is a term that exudes respect and reverence for the Divine. It is a way to see and honor the reality that others live in.
Namaste—even though it is a word that you often hear at the end of every yoga session, in truth, you use it almost all the time. But do you know what it really means?
What is namaste? It has been popularly associated with yoga, but little is known of its role in practice. The rich traditions of yoga create an opportunity for people to dig deeper into themselves.
Through yoga, people can understand the meaning behind the things they have around them. It helps them learn more about what they think and how they feel at the moment.
The practice of yoga is more than just physical exercise. It is about...
