What Are You Hungry For?

Anatara Buckley
When you look deeply into your soul, or when you relax and dream about what you really want… what are you hungry for? What do you want to ‘eat’ that will fill your heart with satisfaction? When there is hunger, it usually means that there is something that we need. Something that we hunger for. It could be food, Love, friendship, or a satisfying job that we are hungering for. It is this...

The Day We Share How Much We Love Each Other

Anatara Buckley
That’s a mouthful — “the Day We Share How Much We Love Each Other”… As I write this, my heart is filling. I can feel the Love bubble up through my chest and into my throat as my head expands into the space of Love all around me. I’ve been thinking about Christmas. For so many years, I have wanted to be able to express what it means to me. Is it Love? Is...

No Community is Perfect

Kat Robinson
After hearing all the drama and controversy going on in the yoga community this week — you know, the whole Yogaglo trying to patent their camera angles thing, and yet another famous yoga teacher thinking it is okay to have sex with students — I started questioning whether or not we should be looking at reality tv for yoga. All the disappointment from so many people. It is sad to know that...

What I Learned From a Crow

Kat Robinson
When I first began teacher-training years ago, I seemed to be a natural at most of the poses. I had a battle with a few of them but, for the most part, I just seemed to get the mechanics of the poses. Some even laughed and told me that I must have been a yogi in another life. But there was one pose that seemed to be so elusive to me — bakasana,...

Acceptance, That’s the Real Love

Kat Robinson
As most of you know, when I was young I had a horrible disease that nearly took my life. I was very ill for a very long time. It was such a profoundly changing time of my life. What was once a happy-go-lucky, easygoing kid became someone who was frightened and insecure in every aspect of my life. I struggled every day with fear, needing to hold on tightly to everything external...

Yoga is Non competitive and Other Myths

Kat Robinson
I have been teaching in the same town for over 11 years now. It is a quaint little town of about 2,000 people within the city limits and around 15,000 county-wide. I have had students of all kinds – they come in all ages, shapes, sizes and gender. Some have been sedentary for years while others are athletes. In all of my classes, I try to teach them to be in the moment...

A Child’s Education

Christina Souza Ma
As a parent, we watch our child go through the many stages of life. We enjoy the moments of laughter and joy as we watch them grow and expand in every way life takes us. But the one area I find most of us question is their education. Are we teaching them enough? Is it the correct approach? Well, I have to say that I was not one to enroll my child in...

Yoga and Parkinson’s

Kat Robinson
For years, I had this wonderful woman in my yoga classes. She participated in everything, from my restorative classes to my powerful vinyasa classes. She always seemed so young for her age and, as an avid yogini, golfer, and jogger, she stayed very physically fit. Then a few years ago, she came to my Tuesday evening hatha class, in which she was a regular. I noticed that she was having some difficulty balancing...

It’s Your Class! Get What You Want!

Kat Robinson
One of the things I have been taught when building my yoga business is to always and forever ask what my students want. It’s pretty simple advice that I have heard from several experts so I figure there must be some truth to it. I do send out a survey to my students from time to time, asking about class times and styles that they would like to see, and I also ask...

Brain scans – swimming up a muddy stream to measure pain.

Neil Pearson
A recent media report started with a statement paraphrased as follows: “Scientists report that they have developed a way to measure how much pain a person is having by scanning their brains”. The writers went on to say that, when doctors are faced with someone in pain, they have no way to judge its severity other than to ask questions. If you are like me, such statements are worse than nails...
