My daily reading brought me to this page and one amazing discovery - how yoga practice affects the lives of breast cancer survivors.
With all the modern methods in treating the disease as well as the side effects of treatment, it is so amazing that what yogis enjoy doing can actually improve the quality of life of those people who survived a disease that is the leading and second leading cause of death in the developed and developing countries respectively.

I love quotes. I find so much inspiration in them.

I have collected a few yoga quotes over the years, and here are…Continue

Leading Chakra Workshops came out of my work doing Yoga Health Retreats in Hawaii, starting 10 years ago. At the end of every yoga class, we would finish with a chakra meditation. Often, after class, my students would want to discuss specific problems in their lives that were clearly related to one chakra or another. So, in addition to using chakra meditations in my yoga classes, I decided to try 8-week chakra workshops for local students. Each week, we would focus on balancing one of…Continue

It's raining and grey outside...what a perfect day to catch up on email, update the United Yogis website, do laundry and clean my place before friends come over later. I was surfing the Internet and came across a Steve Jobs quote he made in 2007:
When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: “If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you’ll most certainly be right.” It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in…Continue

Yoga Sutra 1.3
Then the Seer abides in its own nature.
