Yoga Teachers, Prepare for the New Year’s Rush – Part 2

Let’s continue with more ideas for workshops and some specialty classes that may fit in as part of your regular class schedule. You don’t have to use all of these ideas, but you may find one, or two, that fit with your clientele and your Yoga studio.

Foundations of Yoga: Brahmacharya (Restraint of Sexuality)

In the Yoga Sutras of the sage Patanjali, Yama and Niyama (the do’s and don’ts of Yoga) include the important aspect called Brahmacharya, which is translated continence or sexual restraint. Basically, brahmacharya is conservation and mastery of all the energy systems and powers of our being. This is especially true in relation to negative emotions, for tremendous energy is expended through lust, anger, greed, envy, hatred, resentment, depression, fear, obsession, etc.

Yoga in Practice: Ajna Chakra

Do you think that Tiger Woods ever focused on missing a putt or losing a golf tournament? Whatever you envision, can easily become your reality.

Yoga in Practice: Helping Negative People (Part 2)

No wonder the divorce rates are so high in some cultures. It is because no one wants to give, forgive, or try to understand anyone including their wife, husband, or family members.

Yoga in Practice: Helping Negative People (Part 1)

Do you know someone with a perennial dark cloud over his or her head? You’re thinking: “I want to avoid negative people, not waste my time helping them out.” What if this person is a family member, or loved one, who has turned bitter for some reason? You care deeply for this person and want to help.

Yoga in Practice: Helping Negative People (Part 3)

Remember the saying, “Give a man a fish; you have fed him for today. Teach a man to fish; and you have fed him for a lifetime.” You can always give away material, but what is more valuable than knowledge and acquired skills?

Slow Down and Increase Productivity

Have you ever thought about getting a gym membership but thought “I don’t have time”? Don’t worry. You’re not alone. What some of us don’t think about, is that when you work out at the gym on a regular basis, your energy level goes up, stress is reduced, thought process is refined, sleep pattern is regulated and you have more confidence.

Foundations of Yoga, Part 4: Asteya (Non-Stealing) and Aparigraha (Non-Possessiveness)

The elements of Yama and Niyama of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras include Asteya (non-stealing) and Aparigraha (non-possessiveness). These often ignored qualities are nonetheless extremely important for the practitioner of meditation if positive results are to be expected.

Yoga in Practice: Turning Arguments into Treasure

Ever wish you could take harsh words back? Do you wonder how you could have prevented an impending conflict? How could an argument turn out to be a hidden treasure?

Secrets of Successful Yoga Studios

Each Yoga studio should be a haven for students to find what they seek, without putting up with inferior service. They face far too much of it, outside the Yoga class. You should know the needs of your students and promise only what you can deliver.

What Do You Really Want from Yoga?

Are you looking for a healthy mindset, fitness, spiritual guidance, holistic health, self-improvement, success, or just more oxygen? Yoga can deliver all of these, but I doubt you find all of this “under one roof.” The reason is that there are many kinds of Yoga, and some ashrams, or Yoga schools, will address some of the above-mentioned needs as priorities.

Karmic Yoga: Co-creating With the Spirit in the World

There is a new movement going on right now that became more popular in the 1990s. Since then many people have been discussing the warrior archetype, by going back to the original meaning of warrior. In days of old, of course, many warriors throughout the ages and across various civilizations, prepared for battles and fought in conflicts. There was, however, a difference between the warrior and the soldier and there still is. A soldier can be a warrior, but a warrior need not be a soldier.

Practicing Karmic Yoga at Your Workplace

Why do people think that their spirituality has to stop at their workplace? Some people even think that life has to stop at their workplace. Spirituality is something that helps to enhance all facets of our lives. You can apply your spirituality to make your job better and to make other people’s lives better at work.
