A Beginners Journal: YOGA & MEDITATION

Yogawoman - Monday, November 07, 2011
By Anita Quigley Atherton I have been threatening to do Yoga for around 15 years and now, finally, am about to start. No more excuses. Believe me, there have been plenty. At 35 years of age, my well of excuses has dried up so it’s time to “feel the fear and do it anyway” to walk the talk and see what all the hoopla is ab .....Read On...

The Yoga of Parenting

Yogawoman - Friday, July 22, 2011
When I’m asked how yoga has impacted my parenting, I parse it down to one point, which every other type of work on myself has corroborated for the past 13 years. In every moment, I magnetize my own state. Translated: However I am behaving will be reflected in everyone around me, especially my kid. There are many simp .....Read On...

Lasater to the Rescue

Yogawoman - Monday, March 14, 2011
Yoga teacher, Katherine Rae blogged from Yoga Journal Conference : While I am certainly not about to complain of too much yoga, sometimes these conferences can be a tad bit overstimulating.

Then we start to have more respect and therefore more embodied dignity in the body. Rather than treating it like an object  .....Read On...

Yoga and Multi tasking women

Yogawoman - Thursday, February 17, 2011
Nora Issacs " I think for multi-tasking women, yoga gives them that space to stop. To breathe. To unwind. To get another perspective that you don’t always have to be doing doing doing, that you can stop and just be. There’s that saying: we’re human beings, not human doings and I always think of that." As a wife, mo .....Read On...

Yoga transforms your life

Yogawoman - Thursday, February 17, 2011
It’s sneaky this yoga, it’s so sneaky it goes in and it transforms every part of your life. It changes your desires, it changes the friends you want to hang out with and that helps too. So little by little we lead each other into simpler ways of living and we look back and wonder how did I get here, but I like it here.  .....Read On...
