How Often Should You Practice?

I hear this question a lot. In general my opinion and my answer is “as often as possible, but a little is better than none”. It’s like any other form of exercise or sport…the more you do it, the better you get or the more progress you will see.

Push-ups… Yoga Style

Chaturanga Dandasana. Otherwise known as the yogi push-up. We (yoga nerds) always talk about proper alignment and using the muscles in your back to support the posture instead of using your shoulders and chest muscles. Well…the question is: How the hell do you do that, it’s a push-up right?

So You’re Not Flexible Enough for Yoga?

If you think that you shouldn’t set foot in a yoga class because you aren’t flexible, then yoga is exactly what you should be doing. Yoga is strengthening and stretching at the same time. Each pose is an isometric exercise, and flexibility is simply one of the many positive by-products of the practice. In other words, you don’t have to be flexible before you start practicing yoga. You just need an open mind and a yoga mat…
