yoga tips

hi everyone! i'm jackie. and i'm sara. and we're here from moksha yoga maple andtoday we're going to be to showing you everyones' favorite posture, savasana. be present, be still, be here.

yoga tips, to start off your savasana, come onto your backand extend your legs and arms wide. so a lot of times the tendency is to draw your legsin close together. so from here this really tight position is not going to allow much for you to soften and relax.

so the legs should be at least mat-width apart,wider if you have space, and the toes fall open, so that allows you to release throughyour back and just everything to be soft. arms by your side, instead bring them outa little further. yeah, take up some space. take up some real estate around you. and start to kiss the sholder blades a littlecloser together behind the body so that the heart and the chest can open, and as wellas the palms are turned out a bit more naturally towards the cieling. and then from here with the head, insteadof with the neck or the chin facing up towards the cieling, which is not so relaxing, drawthe chin in more towards your chest.

yeah. and then once you've found this comfortablespot, make any little minor adjustments. maybe the head starts to rock from side to side,to get a really comfortable position for it to rest, and then the breath starts to becomea little deeper. so you'll notice how the belly and the chestwill start to lift and fall as you breath. soften through your face, to your jaw, removeyour tongue from the roof of your mouth, allow your lips to part. and let every single bonein your body be heavy. really that's the only thing you have to focus on is your breath, is just going deeper into this posture.

a lot of times we start to think about otherthings, that happen throughout our day, thinking about our list of to-dos. instead, just comeback to your breath. be present, be still, be here. and that's how you do savasana. now that you know all of the essential tipsneeded, to get yourself ready for your final resting pose, remember to take as much timeas you need in this final posture. if you liked the video remember to comment below,and subscribe to this channel.

yoga styles

hi, my name is julie smith and i work at the williamson county parks and recreation department as a certified group fitness instructor. i teach yoga and chair yoga at the nolensville facility.

yoga styles, as a yoga instructor, i'm often asked the question "what is the difference between vinyasa yoga and hatha yoga?" so i'd love to briefly define that for you today.

hatha, actually pronounced hah-ta, literal meaning of the word is effort so when its structure and a hata class will really break down the alignment and all the postures putting a lot of effort into that and then finding the breath and really getting into the pose and what that would look like if i was building in mountain pose

i would be placing the feet directly under the hips making sure my feet are even parallel to each other and then starting to maybe feel all four corners of the feet evenly dispersing the weight of the arches, facing the palms forward, lifting the sternum, really taking the chin back - ears in line with the shoulders, lifting through the top of the

head and then finding the breath here as you feel that lifted posture. and you continue to move through poses like that breaking them down throughout the class. so vinyasa - difference between that is you would add onto that. vinyasa: the literal meaning of that word is to place in special order. so a teacher would take a group of about five to seven of those

haha postures and put them into a sequence, break down the alignment principles, and then begin to move and blow through those postures synchronizing the breath to the movement. and so what that might look like is if your instructors say take your vinyasa a half-vinyasa - a very common vinyasa flow involves inhaling the hands up - exhaling

taking the forward fold - inhale halfway lifting - exhale stepping or jumping back into a plank and finding an inhale here and then exhale pressing back into your down dog and then inhaling walking or jumping the feet up and rising up into your standing posture. and that would be repeated multiple times throughout the class. so i hope that helps you to

understand the difference between hatha and vinyasa, and i hope it helps you on your journey to finding what exercises is best for you and your body. to find out more information about the williamson county parks and recreation department, our variety of fitness programs or other department activities and events, visit us online at,

yoga school

the isha school is not designed to impose education on the child there is a natural longing in every human being to know something what is it that he wants

yoga school, to know, to discover that and to support that is the teacher's business anything that you pursue

you will always remember anything that's imposed on you will never add to your life. this is the basics on which the school is structured. anything that a child pursues with interest, he will always remember this, it will always become a part of his life anything that is heaped upon him

it doesn't matter how valuable it is, he tends to reject it instead of enforcing that all children should study everything else which is causing a huge damage to the child somebody maybe good at one thing and not so good at the other thing when he's compelled to do it at the same level as other children his...if he has any genius in him

for a particular aspect of life, is generally lost. i dont know. it kind of excites me to think about what could have happened for me because so much of my time and energy as a child was spent trying to understand things that didn't make any sense so, if that was gone and that energy couldhave been directed into something far more dynamic and exciting i don't know what i would have done with it

art maybe, i would have had more freedom to do more art put paper on the table for each child andwe set the tables up like musical chairs and we turn the music on and they drew, and we turn the music off and they went around the chairs, and went around the tables so, by the end of that they were all just screaming and laughing and just drawing crazy, and the way that they loosened up and just got comfortable and since then we've started painting and they are so just full of life and expression and just,

i mean it's amazing, i'm learning so much from them the child will learn not just to read and write we will make sure that the child is exposedto every little thing in life he should know how to fix a bicycle, he should know how to milk a cow, he should know how to cook his food, he should know everything he may not become an expert cook or an expert bicycle repairer but he knows the fundamentals of everything he's not helpless in any kind of situation this will not deviate him from his academics at all

in fact it will enhance him because your academic capabilities don't come just by reading your academic capabilities come because your intelligence is in full swing not half asleep. today the world education scientists are saying that if a child goes to kindergarden school and goesthrough twenty years of formal education let's say he comes out with something like an ms or phd or whatever

20 years of education they're saying 70% of his education is irrevocably destroyed that means he's coming out as aknowledgable idiot and he will not be truly competitve in anything he will try to survive on his two alphabets that he has gathered next to his name so i want the children to grow up in such a way tomorrow if your qualification has no value still you survive

you survive because of your capability, notbecause of your qualification this is education for knowing and to become capable this is not education just to 0:04:56.379,0:04:59.870you know, decorate yourself with something i cut the vegetables then we put them in this big pot and then we stir them and put fire under and we put all these different type of things inside and mix it and make taste

is about taking a deep breath before you do anything, and a lot of people do not realize they are not breathing correctly throughout the day. part of our mission is to make sure that everyone in the community knows how to take a deep breath before they break

down. it is a huge part of it and everyone can come and learn how to do that and so much more. reporter: we were talking earlier because a lot of people may look at yoga and they see someone doing the crazy pretzel over their head, and that is

not what this is about. that can be yoga for some people, but it does not have to be for the rest of us. it can be about the breathing and philosophy. in three of our have broken their backs, so we want them to be aware and we have all sorts

of positions, and you can come here and learn. reporter: and here we have carl, and he is leading the class. i want to ask you, so many people have a misconception about yoga, and tell us why and what they should not be afraid of.

first, let's lay on our backs as i multitask. and why they should not be afraid of a misconception, it is maybe not what people think, and now we are just resting on our back and staying with our breath. you can do yoga without even

moving, and there are a lot of aspects of yoga, and there are eight limbs of yoga, and physical movement is only one. you can concentrate on your body, your breath, and your mind. reporter: and carl can

yoga kurse

hi guys here is vinicius. this time i prepared for us a more reflective content which is an exercise of a great brazilian yogi

yoga kurse, or professor hermogenes have you seen thinking: i'm not good enough, i'm not pretty enough,

concentrated or dedicated enough. these statements and other, worse even, they appear in our consciousness it is very easy we take for granted, what is uncertain. when expectations for results, anxiety and excess commitments mix, we lose clarity

of what is actually happening in life the body and thought, try to think of it as a solo, extremely fertile, everything we deposited there, either through the thoughts, relations with others, it is grown

if you cultivate fear, if you cultivate conflict, anxiety. you end up being contemplated, with these fruits. however, this cycle can be different and give rise to qualities such as: goodness,

patience, a positive view the way you you are perceived in the world. that, decreases that turbulence and increases its awareness of how the facts occur, as they are,

interconnected. and the name of that path, the teacher hermogenes presented as well, it spreads so well in brazil and it is available to everyone, flame: he delivered, i accept, trust

and i thank these four words they make sense, if you think the meaning of life, it is beyond than your thoughts already defined about who you are and how it has to be. if you are enjoying this video,

then already takes and click liked. what is surrender? he delivered it is to free the bond after his actions or the facts, already happened. v ou is the nature allows now

make her role i accept all conditions as perfect inclusive the difficulties i accepted as the necessary lessons a guide, a mentor or god is putting

in my way and trust that such lessons they are non-transferable and only depend on i experience them if i want to continue i integrating more and more to the way life manifested by such teachings and thank you for the past

by president and what will without fear of being happy. to that there is a more interesting understanding of this way, i prepared an exercise to do together right now, before,

takes for you to enroll in the channel and activate the bell so you ensure that you will receive upcoming videos. come on? close your eyes a bit and let your arms resting on your thighs. breathe deeply three times

mentally repeat what i'll tell you i am enough give-me my way my journey i trust my steps to be a being of light unlimited possibilities once again

i give myself to my way i accept my journey opportunities unlimited open your eyes. thanks for watching here leave a comment of what you think this video, your opinion to me

yoga kundalini, fingers so the tips touch the mounds of the palms, the thumbs should be extended pointing upward. continue with breath of fire (inspiring and expiring rapidly through the nose with the same amount of air)

for 1-3 min. inhale and place hands above your head, with thumbs touching and apply mul bhand (information on the web) for a few seconds. inhale and relax your posture. this exercise opens the lungs, brain hemispheres are placed on alert and it strengthens the magnetic field. inhale, stretch the spine forward, exhale and bend the spine backwards. your shoulders should be relaxed and your head up. continue rhythmically with deep breathing for 1-3 min.

this exercise stimulates and stretches the lower and middle of the spine. inhale and turn your head and torso to the left, exhale and turn to the right. continue for 1-3 min. inhale and look forward, then exhale. as in the previous exercise it stimulates and stretches the lower and middle of the spine. take hold of your toes and squeeze tightly (if you can not reach your feet, you can hold your ankles). inhale and straighten your spine, pulling your feet towards you. exhale and lower your body and arms to the floor. 2 continue for 1-3 min. inhale as you go up and hold briefly,

exhale and hold the position a few seconds without lowering the head. inhale and relax. this exercise works on the lower and upper parts of the spine. sit on the right heel and leg stretch the left leg out in front of you. take your left foot with both hands, putting pressure on the big toe nail. in this posture, do breath fire for 1-2 min. inhale, exhale and then lower your head to the feet a few seconds. inhale and relax. repeat with other leg.

this exercise helps to stretch the sciatic nerve and activate the circulation in the upper torso. take hold of your toes, if you can’t, your ankles. inhale and straighten your back pulling your feet toward the body, exhale and bend your left knee. inhale as you straighten and exhale as you bend the right knee. continue with powerful breathing for 1 to 2 min. inhale up and exhale, doblã¡ndote ahead to bring against the floor.

yoga instructor

shakthi ganeshan: i am shakthi ganeshan and i teach yoga. yoga is not what a pose looks like in someone else's body. yoga, ideally, is your own experience of alignment and breath. i had a lot of compassion when i was younger

yoga instructor, for anyone who was ever sick. i didn't like the idea of people not feeling well. that interest spurred my education and so i went into western medicine.

at the time when i began investigating yoga i was feeling very tired, in my own body, very overworked. so it was a really good time for me to begin to explore what could create a feeling of vibrancy in myself. i really love teaching the group classes, and that is because there's an energy

in the room from people being all together. (indistinguishable chatter) every teacher that i consistently went to, every single one of them was a role model. somebody that, you know, i would go to class or go to their training, so excited to learn how they live their life. some of my favorite teachers

they were doing the teacher training, and -- without a lot of thought -- i signed up for that. most yoga teachers have a tremendous skill set, actually. they don't just have, you know, like the 200 hour teacher training and then you go and become this amazing yoga teacher -- that's not the way it happens.

i'm actually very gifted at language, and so sometimes i will have students who will come and they all speak french. that's happened to me more than once at this studio. i have dance training -- i did indian classical dance for ten years. and then: i'm a physician, so i have all of that anatomic knowledge of the body. i'd say the last piece that i didn't have that i would advise a high school student to have

is some knowledge of business. learning about promotion, publicity -- how to find out what the needs of clients are and be more specific in the way that you service those needs. those are all parts of being a yoga teacher as well. notice what you're really curious about, in terms of health, the mind, the body.

it can create a vast amount health, a feeling of vitality, a feeling of really being right with body, and mind, and spirit, everything.

yoga for runners

hey everyone, i'm tara stiles. and today onthe yoga solution, i'm gonna show you a great routine that you can do to cool down yourentire body and mind. let's get started. we'll start in a downward dog. spread your fingersnice and wide, tuck the toes, big inhale to lift yourself all the way up and back. andtake a few simple breaths here to move around a little bit, work into any places that feellike they have a little bit of extra tightness

yoga for runners, or extra tension. and we'll start to walkyour feet all the way up to your hands, one step at a time, really letting the backs ofthe legs open up here. and then once you're all the way up to your top, folding over,let your head soften, let your neck relax, maybe even sway a little side to side. ifyou wanna grab the elbows, go for that. and

then gently sway side to side. let your headrelax, let your neck relax. and when you're ready, releasing out of this one, we'll rollup to stand one vertebrae at a time, no hurry. once you do arrive up to your very top, takea big inhale, fill your arms all the way out and up. and then as you exhale, soften allthe way up and over your legs. so we'll just come into a squat from here. scooching yourfeet a little out to your sides. toes come out and heels and hips sink on down. relaxyour torso, relax your head and neck and shoulders. and then we'll spin up and open to your rightside here. draw your shoulder inside this knee so you really get a good opening. andthen same thing around to your other side. hugging the shoulder inside of your knee,open up the whole torso, the whole back. and

when you're ready, ease yourself back to middle.come down to sit on your hips here. put a nice, soft bend in your knees for an easyforward bend, and then gently relax your torso up and over the legs. breathe a lot. so ifthere's a lot tension in the hamstrings here, you can always bend your knees in a wholelot more. if there's not any tension at all, you can always extend the heels out. but it'ssometimes nice just to keep a little bend in your knees so you're feeling a nice senseof space there. and breathe a lot. from here, we're gonna roll all the way down so you'relying on your back like somebody's pulling on the back of your t-shirt. hug your kneesinto your chest. give yourself a good squeeze. maybe rock gently side to side. and then we'lljust take a nice twist here. hug your right

knee into your chest, give it a good squeeze,and every time you exhale, hug your knee a little bit closer to this right shoulder.and then we'll take a twist around to the side. left hand comes on top, spin your wholetorso up and over, that knee falls to the ground, right arm opens up to the side. breathea lot here into your belly. and when you're ready, bring the knee all the way back tothe middle. give it a good squeeze. and we'll send the leg all the way back down to meetthe other one. hug your left knee into your chest, give it a nice squeeze. and every timeyou exhale, let it fall a little bit closer toward your left shoulder. and breathe a lot.and we'll take the same twist here, drop your knee all the way over to your other side.opposite arm right out to your sides. breathe

a lot into your belly. and when you're ready,draw the knee all the way back in, and let everything relax all the way down here. sotake a big inhale through your nose and long exhale out through your mouth. so feel freeto relax here for however long you like, maybe 30 seconds, maybe a minute or so. just stayhere nice and gently and let your breath be easy. and once you've had enough of that one,whenever you're ready, hug your knees back into chest, and gently rock yourself all theback up. so there you have it: a great routine that you can do to cool down your entire bodyand mind. i'm tara stiles, and i'll see you next time on the yoga solution.

yoga cultural appropriation

my favorite part about teaching theclasses, especially yoga, is the relaxation that sense of calmness and peace that you get through yoga. there's obviouslydifferent types of yoga, but some of the yoga classes that i've beenteaching here

yoga cultural appropriation, have been more restorative and really opening up people's bodies as well as their mind. to get rid ofstress, especially through what we're doing here with the mind-body program, aromatherapy, understandingessential oils, and how

those can definitely play and aid in de-stressing and pain relief, breathing techniques. it's unbelievable how just something simple as your breath can truly calm you down whether it's through anxiety, anything, if you're feeling hyper, a lot of tension, a lot of stress relief can definitely be released through your breath and then obviously yoga. it is such an awesome practice for people to get into to really become aware of their breath andto become aware their body. having this program can help ease some of that stress.

there are so many different aspects of health and, you know, taking control of that mental side, that mind side, can really carry over intoother aspects of your life. health is not just fitness. you knowwe live in a world that is so vain and aesthetically appealing and youknow, "i wanna look like the person on the magazine" and that "if i look this way" or "if i exercise thismuch, then i'm going to be super happy" when that's not the case. there are so many times where you receive that opportunity or

you receive, you work so hard and you getthe body or the image that you want and then what? you're still brokenbecause there is still that mental, emotional, spiritual gap that's missing and until you feel all of the componentsof health you won't be complete. i would definitelyencourage people to explore your mind, explore, you know read, be outside, and get away from tv,the world. just really try to focus on you. find out what you want to do, what you want to be, and the type of person you want to be.

yoga ausbildung

hi and welcome. i'm nic. so, you're thinkingabout taking some privatecyoga classes in montclair.and your question is...why would i want to do private classes when there are so manyyoga studios in montclair? you might already have looked into jaipureyoga, yoga montclair or garden state yoga. all of these yoga studios. and they're greatand certainly a way to practice but i want

yoga ausbildung, to offer you something a little bit can you benefit from getting private yoga sessions? well, for those of you that have never doneyoga before and are complete beginners, going into the studio can be daunting.

i remember my first class and i didn't havea clue what was going on, there was all this sanskrit,i didn't know any of the poses andfor a lot of people that can be kind of scary. so, having a few private sessions before youstart a yoga practice is something that i would totally recommend. it means you andi could work together, slowly, at your pace, working with any modifications for injuries,really until you get to know the yoga flow and the yoga talk and ease you gently intoa class situation for the complete beginners out there, i wouldrecommend doing maybe 10 sessions, just to get familiar with what to expect if you goto a class and feel comfortable and enjoy the practice.

for those people who have already taken classesat say jaipure or yoga montclair or garden state yoga, you maybe want to develop yourpractice a bit further. there may be some poses that you don't reallyknow how to do, when you are in a class situation , you cant really ask the teacher. so, workingone on one, we can really work on the poses you want to advance in. it's also a way for you to have more of adialogue with the teacher and help you off the mat so the yoga isn't just about goingto class but a holistic part of your life. and for those people who have a regular practice,one-on-one means we can do more advanced poses but also lead into some meditation practiceand more advanced breathing practices that

don't get covered in general level classes. so, i'm here in montclair, i work all aroundthe area. i can come to your home and i have a whole bunch of props and straps and blanketsthat i can bring to your place. it's a super yummy hour, hour and a half togive yourself a couple of times a week to refresh and relax or i actually have spacehere in upper montclair and you can come and practice in my space. so i hope that helps give you an introductioninto why you might do some private yoga sessions in montclair with me. my background is withishta yoga . i am 500 hour certified. i work with all shapes,sizes ages, including children. i have a yoga

certification for children also. i would really hope to pass on to you whati have got in my yoga practice over the years and that is a sense of ease, relaxation anda practice that goes off the mat as well as on. and so, please, give me a call at 347-404-1239or you can email me at i have a facebook page nicwatsonyoga and please, i am open to any questions, i lovetalking about yoga. and i would be more than happy to share my experience with you andhelp you build your practice. so, namaste which, in sanskrit means, i salutethe soul in you from the soul in me. i hope

to hear from you soon. looking forward topracticing together. thank you for listening.

the yoga

hi, i'm tara stiles and today on the yogasolution, i'm gonna show you a great routine that you can do in 5 minutes to increase yourflexibility. let's get started. start sitting nice and tall here, however you can sit comfortably.just for a moment close your eyes and start to draw your attention a little bit deeperinward. and simply beginning to lengthen your inhales and deepen your exhales here. so settingan easy and full pace of breath you can stay
the yoga, with for a little while. and take a big inhale,reach your arms all the way up and over your head. and then as you exhale, we'll bringyour right hand down toward the ground. soften up your elbow. nice easy opening in your sidehere. and then gently come all the way back up to the middle. same thing other side here.tipping over, left hand finds the ground.
soften up your elbow. easy, easy opening here.nice, big, full, deep breaths. and gently open yourself back to your middle here, andwe'll walk forward a little ways, maybe just a couple steps if this feels like enough ofan opening here. or maybe a few more if that feels nice to you. and just let the weightof your head and neck soften into toward the ground. maybe sway gently side to side. andwhen you're ready, slowly rounding up from this one. and we'll bring your fingertipsright behind you on the ground. as you push down, lift your chest right upward. maybeeven lift your hips up a bit here, if that feels nice. and when you're ready, ease yourselfall the way back to your middle here. and so we'll just stretch your left leg out towardthe side here. keep your right leg tucked
in. bring your left hand down to the groundinside of the leg. soften up your elbow. reach this opposite arm all the upward here, somuch up that maybe you simply start to tip on over. if you happen to grab the toes, justuse that grip to spin open even more. if the toes are far away that's totally cool too.just keep spinning the torso upward. breathe a lot. and when you're ready, bring yourselfup from this one here. we'll unwind with a twist. left hand finds your knee. fingertipsbehind you. big inhale to sit up tall, and then as you exhale, spinning around a littlebit more. and when you're ready, coming back to the middle here. we'll draw this leg allthe way and give it a good squeeze in front of your body. so either holding your footand right above your knee if the hips feel
pretty tight here. if there's a little bitmore room to work with, you can slide your foot in your elbow. kind of cradling the leghere. sitting up super tall. nice. so just sit up so tall here that maybe you slide yourbottom heel all the way forward out in front of you. lengthening that leg, sit up niceand tall, give the shin a big squeeze. and then as you exhale, we'll place the foot rightoutside of this hip here. so take a big inhale reach your right arm all the way up. and thenas you exhale, we'll cross the arm over your leg. opposite fingertips right behind yourbody. big inhale to sit up tall. and then as you exhale, gently spin around a littlebit further, a little easier. and just a simple counter twist here, unwinding, spinning aroundthe other way. and gently bring yourself back
to the middle here. we'll just interlace yourhands around the bottom of your foot. sit up nice tall, maybe even start to extend thisleg out in front of you. if there's no room to have a tall back and a straight leg, justsoften the knee here and keep the back nice and long. so wherever you're at breathe alot. and we'll take a twist from this one here. so bring your right hand to the outsideof your foot. left fingertips behind you. big inhale to sit up really tall. and thenas you exhale, spin around a little bit more. and gently bring yourself back to the middlehere. we'll stretch both feet all the way down to the ground and put a little softnessin your knees, and we'll just start to fold all the way up and over your legs here. breathinga lot. and when you're ready, slowly come
all the way from this one here. so we'll justswitch sides, tucking the left leg in, extending your right leg all the way out to the side.bring your right hand down toward the ground, soften up your elbow. reach this oppositearm all the way up here. and, again, so much up that maybe you run out of up and starttipping over. if your hand reaches your foot, maybe bring your other hand around to yourknee. you can use that pressure to roll your shoulder inside here and spin open even more.if that's not happening again, doesn't matter. just keep everything opening upward. and whenyou're ready, slowly bring yourself up from this one. in line with a twist, hand findsyour knee, opposite fingertips behind you. big inhale to sit up tall. and then as youexhale, spin around a little bit more. and
we'll come back to your middle here. again,cradling this leg here. so either holding your foot and your knee. if the hips are reallytight or there's knee problems, don't tweak your knees or push past any pain here. somake sure you can always breathe and be pain-free. so we'll sit up so tall here. we'll have youslide this other heel all the way out in front of you. big inhale to lengthen up nice andtall to open up the hips. and then as you exhale, place your foot right outside thisextended hip here next to your body. so big inhale, reach your left arm up. and then asyou exhale, cross the arm over. fingertips come behind you. big inhale to sit up tall.and then as you exhale, spin around a little bit more. and we'll unwind with a nice countertwist here. so big deep, long inhale, and
then easy exhale. and we'll come back to yourmiddle here. so interlacing your hands underneath this foot here. again, sitting up nice andlong in the spine. again, so tall in the spine that maybe this heel just starts to extendforward. and, again, if the leg doesn't go all way straight, it really doesn't matter.just keep a nice, long back so the knee can be as bent as you need it to be. just breathea lot. and when you've had enough of that one, gently relax the leg all the way backdown to the ground here. so stretching both heels all the way forward, sit up nice andtall in your spine. and then as you exhale, crawling all the way up and over the legshere. so make sure you keep a nice bend in the knees, especially if there's tension inthe hamstrings or lower back. this way you
can have the nice opening without the stressor frustration involved there of kind of touching your toes. but if there's lots of room togo in the hamstrings, you can always slide the heels out too. and just relax your armsdown on the ground here. and just breathe a whole, whole lot. really big, deep inhales.make a little bit more space. and then long exhales to move you right in. and then whenyou're ready, gently roll yourself all the way up from this one, and you're done. greatjob. so there you have it: a great routine that you can do in 5 minutes to increase yourflexibility. i'm tara stiles and i'll see you next time on the yoga solution.

kundalini meditation

today's topic is how to activate all the chakras. seven chakras, especially. 7 chakras are described in indian system of yoga. yoga is a system. remember, yoga is not a religion. so the yoga system is a system to improve yourself. we have 7 chakras. i have shed lot of light on the chakras, their functions, what they do, what we feel. today, you will hear how to activate them. first chakra is called muladhara. let me tell you. when you visualize the first chakra, base of the spine, you have to visualize red light. because it is a red color. so when you visualize red color, it begins to work. if it is not active, what do you feel?

kundalini meditation, if it is not active. so, you will feel if it is suppose, active, you will feel well-balanced and sensible, very stable. and very much secure. you will not distrust people, at all. you will feel that you are present at the moment. and you are connected to your physical body. but if it is not active at all, then what you will feel? you will feel very fearful and very nervous. and you will not welcome to anyone. but, sometimes it gets overactive. when it is overactive, you will feel very materialistic and greedy. greediness will not secure your life. security will be far, far away.

so how to activate it? very well-balanced, very well-sensible, stable, secure. so first you visualize red light or red color there. and there is a sound. it is called lam (lang). lam, lam. l like larry, a, m. lam, lam, lam. you can recite this sound with visualizing the color red color, red light. lam, lam, lam... so, this sound will activate this chakra. the 2nd chakra is svadhisthana. you can activate this. you have to visualize orange light. this represents very much feeling and sexuality. if it is open, what you feel? you feel that you can express yourself without any emotions. you cannot be overemotional. so you can express yourself. you will not have problems like people have problems with sexuality. they cannot function very well. so if it is open you will feel that there is no problem at all. in female's body or male's body. if this chakra is not active, you feel unemotional and you are not open to anybody. but sometimes it gets overactive. when it is overactive you become very sensitive. you become very emotional all the time. and sometimes when it is really overactive you feel lot of sexual energy. and let me tell you how to balance it. first, you have to do it, orange light, visualize below two inches on your svadisthana, second chakra and it is a water sound.

first chakra was earth sound, like you sit around the earth or mountain, but this chakra you have to visualize orange color and water like the ocean, river, streams, fountains. this is really seat of unconscious mind and this is also collective conscious. it has all the samskaras, it has all the instincts - this chakra. you need to balance it. let me give you one word. orange light. orange color. and the sound is vam (vang), vam, vam. v, a, m. v like victor, a, m. vam, vam, vam... just repeat it several times. maybe a few minutes. and have fountains or something water there or ocean sound. it will be active and plus it will be balanced. 3rd chakra is called manipura, in the navel. that is yellow color. you have to visualize in your navel yellow color. when it is working, it is open, what are the symptoms? you have confidence and especially when you are in the group you are very confident. you feel you are in control. you feel very very graceful and dignity around you. sometimes it is underactive, it is not active at all. so what you will feel? very passive and indecisive. but, sometimes it is very overactive. when it is overactive you feel very aggressive. and it is problem. so, how to balance it? first of all you have to understand this is the color of yellow color and the element is fire. because you have to visualize a fire. if you are around a fire you will see a big flame.

it is a city of jewels actually. you can get lots of jewels. you become like a jewel. it is a jewel of the human being. how to activate it, how to balance it? sound ram (rang). ram, ram, ram... yellow color in the navel, then it will balance. 4th chakra is the anahata chakra. it is called also heart chakra. green light. you have to visualize green. it is like air, wind is its element. if there is a sound of the wind, it helps to balance it. and sometimes when you are sitting in the dark room you just have a burning flame. it will help. so this way the green light... so if it is open what can you do? you care about the other people, you love, also you have good relations with the other people. but if it is underactive, what happens? you are cold towards anyone. not friendly at all. sometimes it is overactive, so overactive means you have so much love that you suffocate all the people with it. so it is like a selfishness for you. how to balance it? the word i am giving you, the color is green, the sound is yam (yang). y, a, m. yam. like yam. yam, yam, yam... 5th chakra is vishuddhi chakra. it is called also throat chakra. throat chakra if it is open, you have very good expression and communication, very well. and if it is not active you cannot speak.

you have hard time to speak, you will be very shy. and if it is very active, what you do, you speak a lot. you annoy the people. sometimes you don't listen to the other people. how to activate it? light blue color. visualize there light blue color in the throat chakra. and the sound is ham (hang). h, a, m. ham, ham, ham... in the open sky, under the moonlight, it will be activated and well-balanced. 6th chakra is ajna chakra. the color is blue. like its name, it is name is like you have very much excellent clairvoyance. you dream a lot. if it is not active, what is the symptom? you're relying on the other people, how to believe, how to think, and you are confused. but if is overactive, what you will do? you will imagine all day long. extremists becomes like daydreams and hallucinations sometimes. how to balance this chakra? very like the blue color, and the sound is aaauuum. aaauuum, aaauuum, aaauuum. and element is like a subtle body. there is no element like anything else. just subtle body. you can feel the subtle body. 7th chakra is called crown chakra. that is also called sahasrara. this has no sound at all. so it is like consciousness, your consciousness. it if is open, this chakra, you don't have prejudice, you are not prejudiced at all. and you are very spiritual. and if it is, you are not busied in the thoughts. but if it is overactive, what happens? overactive is you will not feel even for your own body. you will not eat, you will not drink, you will not seek shelter. it is overactive. but if it is underactive you feel not spiritual, not quiet. you are busied in your thoughts. that's what it is.

how to activate it? you have to just think about consiousness. and consciousness is shapeless, formless. but color is pink. you can visualize pink color on the top of the head. and you will be surprised that it will begin to open and will be balanced.

kriya yoga

we will now know about the 4 steps in kriya yoga after taking 49 mins kriya yoga diksha we will talk more on this first and foremost you should sit straight as lord krishna mentioned in bhagavad gita to arjuna, “samam kayam shiro grivam” while teaching kriya yoga. our body, neck and head should be in a straight line, then only we can receive abundant cosmic energy inside us

kriya yoga, so we should sit straight place your hands in yog mudra position this is step 1 the importance of yoga mudra is that, when we place two thumbs

together sushumna nadi will get more energy vibrations similarly,by placing our index fingers together ida & pingala nadi will get energized howmuch ever the amount of cosmic energy we receive during this meditation the same amount of energy will be produced in us so this mudra is also known as sri chakra mudra so in kriya yoga this yog mudra is highly significant next step is step is omkaram there is no mantra greater than omkaram why because omkaram has the highest sound energy omkaram is also considered to be the embodiment of bramha vishnu mahesh that's why there won’t be any mantra without omkaram while practising sushumna kriya yoga, we should listen to our own omkaras and chant omkaram should originate from nabhi depending on each one of our lung capacity

there is no compulsion that it should be chanted loudly or long or lengthy, so dont force yourselves with regular practise, you will be able to chant it long the chanting of “au” syllable should be 1 unit “um” syllable should be 2 units keep little gap and then chant next omkaram all who are taking initiation today,should practice this omkaram and deep breaths for 5 minutes every day in the evening only once in a day you practice fully for 49 mins, but omkaras and deep breathes you should practice for 5 mins in evening for second time chant omkara along with me do not chant omkaras asynchronously, chant with me for 21 times

next step is deep breathing deep breathes also should come from naval position inhale and exhale very slowly while taking the deep breathes while breathing in feel that you are taking in the virtuous things inside feel you are taking inside spirituality, good health, all divine qualities that you know that all you should feel,you are taking it inside, like you are taking in divine energy divine light you are taking inside like this with 'bhava' we should breathe in

while exhaling you should feel bad health, ego, anger, jealousy, whichever negative qualities that are disturbing you, whichever negative qualities are there breathe out each of those negative qualities with complete feel or 'bhava' do not practice this deep breathing technique like pranayam if you practice with bhava you can go deep and can concentrate easily on your third eye region so omkara and deep breathes are very important steps in kriya yoga practice next and final step is, focus on your third eye region focus on third eye region, many people think that

you should force your eyes and look up so dont force your eyes, if you do so you might get headache before meditation, raise your neck little bit it is difficult to keep your neck down like this and concentrate now arjun's guru once told arjun: asked all pandavas and kauravas to hit the eyeball of a bird all others except arjun were seeing sky, tree, leaves, bird in the tree and everything else but arjun saw only eyeball of the bird

so we should become arjun in kriya yoga practice just forget the entire body, only concentrate forget hands,legs everything. only concentrate on agya chakra in our body the most important place for our inner journey, the third eye region that is the reason why in olden days, we use to place tilak here even gents use to put sandalwood tilak or kumkum tilak or other we can put tilak anywhere else but why only here because it is the place of our third eye, everyday when we put tilak and we touch it, it vibrates sushumna will vibrate and we can easily enter into meditative state

with this bhava only our ancestors started applying tilak at thrid eye region so we should forget everything and only concentrate on third eye region but not stressfull (like this) very easily and comfortably the way how we enjoy a kids smile or the way we cherish flower that just blossomed and drenched in rain or they way we cherish moon in moonlight or happiness to see waves in the sea the type of feeling we have during such situations you will definitely be in a thoughtless state

if we enjoy anything satisfactorily, we will be in the thoughtless state by default with the same bhava concentrate on your third eye region for this 49 mins, believe that you are a soul that is the fact, you existed before this physical body, existing now and will exist even after leaving this physical body what we will loose is only the physical body so we will meet our real selves, this 49 mins please forget your name, position, place, profession i am a soul what happens in kriya yoga is, we embrace the truth

so we dont need anything in this 49mins i, my soul is god, i am close to god and in his lap as an infant in this 49 mins will be tuned into kriya yoga, i will always have his blessings with the same bhava, now we will practice kriya yoga for 49 mins i hope you all understood the process process: sit straight, keep hands in yoga mudra position chant omkara along with me then 14 times deep breathes with bhava then concentrate with ease on third eye region please do not open your eyes in between

because if you open your eyes in between then 80% of your energy will be wasted, so do not open your eyes in between when i say "slowly come out of meditation" then open your eyes, when we sit with eyes closed everyones energy here will be equal

hatha yoga postures

irritable-bowel-syndrome-treatment ,how totreat irritable bowel syndrome irritable bowel syndrome (ibs) is a disorderthat causes a variety of symptoms such as abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhea, gas,cramping, and bloating.most people can manage symptoms with diet changes, but there aresome medications available to help treat symptoms

hatha yoga postures, as well. you can also try supplements and use stressmanagement techniques to treat ibs. 1keep a food diary. start keeping a food diary to keep track ofwhat you eat and how it makes you feel.

you can use your food diary to identify thefoods that tend to trigger your ibs symptoms and use that information to avoid triggerfoods in the your food diary include things like:what you ate how much you atewhen you ate how you felt one to two hours after eating 2follow the low fodmap diet.fodmap stands for fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides,monosaccharides and polyols. these ingredients are more likely to produceibs symptoms, so reducing your intake of foods that contain these ingredients should helpto improve your ibs symptoms.

foods that you should limit or avoid include:certain fruits such as apples, blackberries, apricots, cherries, nectarines, mangoes, pears,watermelon, or plums canned fruitsfruit juice dried fruitcertain vegetables such as artichokes, cabbage, garlic, lentils, cauliflower, mushrooms, asparagus,beans, onions, snow peas , and sugar snap peasdairy products wheatrye high-fructose corn syruphoney 3eat regular meals.

having an irregular eating pattern can alsocontribute to ibs symptoms, so try not to skip any meals or eat meals that are spacedtoo far apart. maintain a regular meal schedule and try toeat about once every three hours during the day. avoid eating large meals as well. large meals may also contribute to ibs symptoms,so try to eat four or five small meals throughout the day. 4drink plenty of water. staying hydrated can also help to combat someof the symptoms of ibs.

aim to drink about eight 8 ounce glasses ofwater every day. if you exercise or have an active lifestyle,then you may need to drink more. steer clear of fizzy water and other carbonatedbeverages. these can make ibs symptoms worse. 5reduce alcohol and caffeine. alcohol and caffeine can irritate your digestivesystem. they may cause abdominal pain, diarrhea, orconstipation. try to reduce or eliminate caffeine and alcoholfrom your diet and see if your symptoms improve. for example, instead of having two cups ofcoffee in the morning, just have one.

or, instead of having a martini with dinner,have a glass of water.

free yoga classes

good morning, take advantage of this nice, warm afternoon. i think that today we will be in the mid to upper 90's across marysville and sacramento.

free yoga classes, 95 in modesto. 93 in fairfield. mid 90's as we head into the foothills around auburn this

afternoon. should be the upper 70's today, less wind than yesterday. overall a good looking day, we will check out the forecast coming up in the next hour. i have the -- i have dabbled in it a little bit, the yoga thing. what tomorrow might be the day,

if you are like me, to take the plunge and take a class, because it is free. like this is a great way to have a stress feet -- stress-free labor day holiday. yoga studios across the area are taking part in the sacramento free day of yoga, focusing on

the whole body, including the idea that food plays an important role in achieving that allen's. joining us this morning is michelle, the founder of the free day of sacramento yoga. thank you both so much for being

with us here. let's start, what is i you beta and am i saying that correctly? is the science of life, a sister science to yoga, you are saying it perfectly. we are working with foods and spices and oils on the body. instead of just

being a little bit stressful, we can work from food as well. you are saying that food and drink can help you to feel differently by the end of the day? exactly. want to tell us what we are

drinking and why it will help us to feel different? imagine that it is a hot day. labor day. we are imagining. [laughter] maybe something happens that is stressful.

you come home and you want a beer or a glass of wine. maybe some potatoes? maybe. most of what we crave increases the heat. we wind up more stressed by the time we go to bed. like ice

cream? even ice cream. pastries? we are going to try some infused water. the first one is infused with ginger. do you have a guess as to

whether it's heating or cooling? go ahead and try. this one is the ginger. maybe you can taste the warming. absolutely. spicy. that would be good for indigestion.

or if you are feeling isolated or depression is sitting in, this would warm up your body to bring the life back in. very nice. the next one is hibiscus mint lemon. difference between them. very cooling.

nourishing. this would be a great drink for your labor day barbecue. it literally took me three seconds to throw it together. good idea. that definitely started off the holiday with a drink. let's get some meeting in there.

i also made a rice dish, because rice is so common for us to make at home. this is the plain rice. i have made heating version and a cooling version. the first one that we will try is the lighter one, it is about concealing.

this is so montreux coconut. -- so montreux -- so montreux -- cilantro coconut. something to calm down your belly. then you can have another glass. a bit of a crunch as well. what is this one?

tahini basil curry. the warming in that one is sensitive. after uei it you will start to feel warm inside your mouth. that one will also warm the belly against the isolating i will definitely take part in

the eating. it was tough for me. i have tried it a couple of times. this is a good way for people to go out who are saying that they are veterans, but for first timers as well, for those who are intimidated, it is free and

happening across the area. it is great for the seasoned, it is also great for those who have never done it before. tomorrow we have a class called -- i am new to yoga, please don't hurt me. and then we

have the yoga food and we are doing the yoga skin beauty bar that is happening. it has really taken off in sacramento. this is the third time you are putting it on. especially at a time when people are supposed to take off for

stress relief. we encourage people to make a day of it, come out and have fun. we will have a list of the studio's online. maybe we will see you tomorrow.

bhakti yoga

swami sivananda has described the 9 fold path of devotion to the guru just like in ramayana should read the book guru bhakti yoga and practise it steadfastly. should be interested in the practise second , imbibe the thoughts and deeds of the guru in his own deeds with faith

bhakti yoga, no matter how dumb or stupid , he'll cross the ocean of the material world third , should start doing according to the orders of the guru should try his level best to complete the orders of the guru i am reading this out now , but all this has happened in my life due to guru's grace

a senior disciple of my guru told me , "guruji has asked you to take these tourists to china peak " i agreed although i had never gone there myself we left before sunrise. he had just moved a few miles when the weather worsened hailstorm , strong winds , fog , rains people were coming back those who were with me too wanted to back out . i said ,"no , it is guru's order to make you see china peak" sometimes i would beg , other times say a few words , get angry.this way we would move 10-25 steps and they would get tired and would sit down all were fat the effort to make them agree to walk was even more than what i had done to please god

god used to get pleased very easily after so much begging & pleading , we reached the top at 2 pm , we had left at 6 am the weather cleared .all the tourist had run away they saw it very clearly & nicely on returning downhill , they were ahead of me & reached guruji earlier guruji asked what happened. they said we saw china peak guruji-but the weather was bad how did you reach they narrated the whole story your discple asharam ...omg

for me it was guru's order.that to not direct orders,someone else told me they must have told sai (lilashaji maharaj - bapuji's guru) .they have their own ways like one throws out fly from the milk ,in the same way all the seniors were trying to throw me out of the ashram i was the only junior it was all seniors vs me , still i used to tolerate everything & stay happy.never was i upset sometimes guruji would get influenced and would get a bit angry but i was never saddened . guruji knows everything , it'll be alright and later when the truth used to come out guruji was touched & would say - why didnt you speak up earlier. guruji would then shower his grace even more it would seem from outside that terrible atrocities were being done on me but i let them torment me.

om guru , my guru ...whatever happens it is good guruji - so you saw china peak ? bad weather , hails tourists - sai your asharam ...omg... he is stickier than even the most stickiest of things it is sai's order .sometime would beg , other times would do satsanga ...somehow he he delivered us to that place your asharam sai - then what happened tourists- as soon as we went there the weather cleared sai - one who obeys the guru , even nature obeys him. from now on even nature will follow his orders o! guru maharaj , you have granted me a boon which i could never have even thought of.

i didnt have the guts to say , that nature should obey me i never had done any such penance . but the conspiracy against me became a boon for me sai to tourists - he obeyed his guru , now nature will obey him i didnt have the audacity to ask for such a thiing , but guruji didnt hesitate to grant me what more can i speak for such a guru the word guru is destroyer of sins uttering 'gu' destroys sins 'ru' opens the doors of spirituality 'gu' brings out the opulence of oneness of soul & god

one of lord narayan's name is guru o ! guru , om guru , om guru one who utters 'guru' even once his sins are destroyed and this guru poonam a.k.a ashadhi purnima marks the first day of the yuga (cosmic cycle) so 9 types of devotion towards the guru have been described by shivanand saraswati 1.reading the book 'gurubhaktiyoga' 2. ultimate faith in the deeds & thoughts of guru 3. try his level best to fulfill guru's tasks

i did my level best to show the tourists china peak , which was my guru's orders it is now that i am reading that one should try his level best & what did i get in return ... the nature will obey you since you have obeyed your guru rains happen 4. should bow down to his guru solemnly not for showing off and chant the mantra given by the guru , respectfully it should not be like , chanting just for the sake of doing it 5 . serve without excepting anything in return i hadn't gone to my guru in return for some boon , it was guru's orders so i followed it

guruji will be pleased he'll grant me a boon such unfortunate thoughts never crossed my mind guruji showered his grace one who expect anything in return donot excel in their allotted fields guruji has said this is enough,i have got a chance to do it 6 . mental worship though i read it just know , i was doing this earlier as well mentally bathe , wipe him dry , apply tilak on our guru mental worship is 100 times more meritorious than physical worship and this is very easy .on the other hand bring ritual materials , chant mantras for physical worship

while the merit is 100 times more i didnot knew this beforehand , but something urged me from the inside & i used to do it 7 . contribute body , mind & money in the divine works of the guru 8 . meditating on the form of guru not only the physical body of the guru but moving a step forward and meditating on the nature of the guru guru is vast , infinite , divine , immortal , conscious ,formless , free from the senses it has nicely been described in the book narayan stuti (published by ashram) the nature of narayan & brahma is same as that of guru .the nature of guru is same as that of narayan & brahma

9.listening to the discourses and living life according to it whatever has been heard from the guru , follow it without perfidy there are many who give discourses as an occupation instead whatever has been heard telling it to others & in the process wishing good for them gurubhaktiyoga has been accomplished in this kaliyuga , there are problems associated with other spiritual paths & one might get corrupted but in gurubhaktiyoga , there is no effect of problems as such & no chance of getting corrupted gurudev takes care of everything you just heard the 9 fold path of gurubhaktiyoga
