These days, it seems that the entire world can be controlled from our handheld devices. BlackBerry, iPod, iPhone, MP3 players, flat screen TVs, computers, laptops…the list is endless. We can do nearly anything with technology, so being able to get a yoga class from your device can’t be too far behind. Of course, by […]
Choosing Health over Poison I used to be a smoker. In fact, I continued smoking for quite awhile after beginning a yoga and meditation practice. Madness, I know. Cigarette smoke contains too many deadly toxins to count; smoking is a very good—albeit slow—way of killing yourself. So why did I continue doing it for so […]
The Importance of a Time Out

I refer to the term “Lohasian.” I first came across it in an online search about sustainable living, and later in Spirituality and Health magazine.

It would be the understatement of the century for me to say that I am a bit of a doctor connoisseur. In the last eight years, you name it, I’ve seen it. And this is due either to my knee injury or as of late, my Grave’s disease. So in the last few years, I’ve […]
Do you have a “sacred space” devoted to your times of meditation? Most practitioners do.
