15 Dec 2014 » Lengthening (and compressing) the spine for spinal health
Back issues are one of the most common physical complaints people have, and practicing yoga without good spinal alignment can exacerbate back problems. On the other hand, yoga done with good spinal alignment can work wonders for spinal health, both in the short and the long term.
08 Dec 2014 » Balancing power and refinement
Most of us have a tendency to work too hard in yoga at least some of the time in an effort to try to force improvement in our practice. However, over-efforting is counterproductive because it increases the likelihood of injury and thwarts our enjoyment of the present moment, which in turn impedes our ability to practice awareness with serenity. In addition, too much power in our practice makes it difficult to explore the refinements of the poses, to notice and adjust minor alignment imbalances, and to find expressiveness, spaciousness, and freedom in each pose.
So how do you go about striking that balance between power and refinement? The answer is through the breath.
