What Type of Yoga Mat Should I Buy?

 I've been asked this many times by my students:  "What kind of yoga mat should I buy?"

Places in Honolulu I eat at.

How's it going people? A client of mine asked me the other day to write a blog on where I go to grab a bite to eat. This one was a little hard I have to admit due to my current standards in quality of food. The places I eat out at are minimal. I always recommend to people, clients, friends or family that the best place to eat healthy is at home. However, I too from time to time get lazy so here's a list of places I grind at. Feel free to comment and let me know where you get your grub on. 

Why do Yoga?

For those people out there who aren't sure if yoga is for them, I'd like to put it out there that a person doesn't need to be a stereotypical "yogi" to do yoga.  Although many people who have been practicing yoga for awhile discover that yoga goes well beyond the realm of physical postures, most of us (myself included) don't start out understanding that.  So before you count yoga out because you don't think you're flexible enough, calm enough, or spiritual enough, check out some of the reasons why yoga is good for the mind and body.

Understanding Omega-3, Omega-6 Fatty Acids

Happy New Year's Eve everyone. I've had several clients ask me my opinion on taking Omega Fatty Acid supplements, particularly Omega-3s because they heard that it was good for them. Before I encourage anyone taking Omega-3, etc. I'll teach you why they're important. Don't do or use something because someone else is doing it. Educate yourself or I will help you. There are two main kinds of fatty acids : 1) Omega-3 and 2) Omega-6. Omega-3s come from parts of plants, while Omega-6s come from the seeds of plants. We need approximately equal amounts of Omega-3s and Omega-6s in our bodies.

Comparing the Health Benefits of Exercise and Yoga (from IDEA Fitness Journal)

 Yoga is a physical activity that differs from conventional exercise in that it offers mental, emotional and spiritual dimensions.  This is not to say that conventional exercise lacks these qualities, but rather that these dimensions are not integral to practicing fitness activities in the way that they are to practicing yoga.  Growing research evidence shows that yoga practice impacts the sympathetic nervous system and benefits both physical and mental health.  

Habits

Greetings from Japan!  I went to a class in Tokyo the other day, and wanted to share what the instructor here shared with her class: it's time to pay more closer attention to our habits.  Allow me to elaborate:

 

The Brain-Gut Connection

 Hi All,

 

It's been awhile.  I was intrigued when I saw recently, that our guts have the same number of neurotransmitters as our brains, and in my research, I came across this article.  Check it out!

Find Your Happiness

 Author Geneen Roth mentions in one of her books, a sharing by a Buddhist teacher:

"There is no way to happiness, because happiness is the way."

Take a moment to think about something in your life that brings you joy, and let all the other mental chatter just drift to the back of your consciousness. 

Have a beautiful day!
