happy LOVERS DAY!  today I offer a beautiful all levels/easy flowing class dedicated to the devotional love of Mirabai.

Mirabai was passionately in love and devoted to Krishna. as an act of her devotion, Mirabai wrote beautiful love songs and poems to express her divine commitment.  her devotion began at a very early age when she given a statue of Krishna that embodied pure divine love. although Mirabai was a princess and later married a prince, she was always devoted to her Sri Krishna.  soon she left the court and decided to travel through India writing and celebrating her lover.

this audio yoga practice offers some of my favorite easy flowing postures:  newly named sultry bhujangasana (cobra), anjaneyasana (low lunge), dhanurasana (bow), salabhasana (locust),  and dhanurasana (camel) with prayer drops.

enjoy and fall in love with something!!!

episode #50: tap into the core – open level (60 min)

•December 21, 2010 • 8 Comments

tap into the fire essence of your manipura chakra (3rd chakra).  this podcast is inspired by the 3rd chakra and we focus on various asanas to stimulate a powerful flow of energy. enjoy the class!

episode #50

below are a few notes about the manipura chakra.

–       Located between your navel and the bottom of your rib cage.

–       The 3rd chakra is the seat of your will and the manifestation of your power. Here lies your self-confidence, self-esteem, and your ability to make decisions. Out of balance you can be manipulative of others or easily controlled by others, suffer from digestive problems, eating disorders, poor body image, insecurity, and lack of drive and ambition (Tapas). Your self-confidence is threatened and you may have a fear of rejection.

–       The Navel Chakra is known as the fire of material consciousness. The”Agni” is located here, where the Prana and Apana meet, burning the rubbish (detoxifying). 

–       The organs governed by the third chakra are the kidneys, liver, gall bladder, spleen, stomach, small intestine, diaphragm, and solar plexus.

–       Asanas – Surya namaskar (Sun Salutation), Navasana/Boat, Ardha Navasana/Half Boat, and Urdhva Prasarita Padasana (Leg Lifts), Warrior poses, and twists.

–       Pranayama – Bhastrika Pranayama (Bellows Breath or Breath of Fire)

–       Kriyas – Fire twist, agni lunge

–       Essential Oils – Juniper, lavender, bergamot, rosemary. Also for aromatherapy: peppermint, bougainvillea, frangipani, ylang-ylang, cedar, clove

–       Gemstones – Amber, gold, yellow or citrine topaz, citrine, Tiger’s eye, gold calcite, gold, peridot, yellow tourmaline, Laguna agate, Labradorite, howlite, jasper, chalcedony, Morganite, heliodor, yellow sapphire

–       Symbolized by 10 petals arranged from right to left and is sometime referred as the chakra of attainment.

10-minute guided love meditation

•December 3, 2010 • 9 Comments

Meditation has an amazing way of helping you relax and release negative feelings. Although it may seem difficult to relax the “monkey mind,” I find it best to start out with a short meditation practice and slowly increase the length over time. As a sweet holiday offering, I’ve recorded a 10-minute Guided Love Meditation. Enjoy and fill your heart with Divine Love and Grace!

Comments from the Yoga Teacher Training Anatomy & Physiology Weekend with Fabienne (MD, MPH, RYT)

•November 15, 2010 • Leave a Comment


Although I was in New Orleans this weekend, my 2010-2011 yoga teacher trainees had the pleasure of spending the weekend with Fabienne. Fabienne is a graduate of my YTT program, a medical doctor, and has spent many years practicing yoga. Not only does she offer useful knowledge around a subject that can be challenging to absorb, she makes yoga anatomy & physiology FUN!

Many thanks to Fabienne for offering up her love of the practice!

Below are comments from my YTTs:

“Thank you Fabienne. You’re a great instructor; I learned so much while having some big belly-laughs along the way :)”

“Thank you Fabienne for sharing so much info in such an amazingly fun way!!!”

“We couldn’t have asked for a better way to learn anatomy.  Note now we all have to remember to retain it. Circumvent the arms up everyone. :)”

episode #49

clear the fog, energize the body

•November 2, 2010 • Leave a Comment

here’s a section from my e-newsletter.

Kapalabhati (Skull Shining Breath)

Kapalabhati pranayama is an energizing abdominal breathing practice that purifies the body, clears the mind, and leads to inner radiance.  As the breath pulsates through the energetic pathways of the body (the nadis), it stimulates both the manipura (naval) and anahata (heart) chakras, generates heat to dissolve toxins, and cleanses the psyche of negative thoughts.

Basic Technique

1.     Sit in a comfortable position with the hands resting on your knees. Feel free to take a hand mudra if you want.

2.     Inhale and exhale through the nose a few times just to prepare.

3.     Inhale about half way, then exhale sharply through the nose.

4.     Allow the inhale to happen passively and exhale forcefully at a fast pace.

5.     Do three rounds of thirty or so, coming back to a deep inhale and exhale at the end of each round.

Note: If you feel lightheaded come back to an easy inhale and exhale. If you are pregnant, I recommend not doing this pranayama because of the active abdominal work.
