By | news | No Comments

One of the Ten Commandments in the yoga community is called Aparigraha.”

Aparigraha is a Yama that invites us to distance ourselves from greed, desires, jealousy, grasping, and acquiring. On the East coast I was an invincible gravity defying yogi and television personality addicted to my external strength. The moment I moved west amid basalt lava my ego was corrected by the grounding force of tuff: I ruptured my Achilles tendon and volcanic ash eclipsed my power.” – Read More.

Terri Walsh has teamed up with Manu Yoga Retreats so, be on the look out for future A.R.T. Method teacher training options at our luxury Yoga Retreat in Costa Rica!

What is the A.R.T. Method?

After twenty years of intense study Walsh eventually created her own trademark and patent: Active Resistance Training®. The A. R. T Method uses two standard foam yoga blocks to create resistance in distinct zones of our body that target large and small muscle groups. The principals of internal alignment and concentration rely on the same musculoskeletal strength needed in Yoga and Pilates classes, but Walsh brings a special brand of aerobic energy to it. Walsh is firm: “This is not yoga with weights and it is not weights with yoga. It is not yoga and it is not fitness: it is a fitness practice”. – See more at: Yoganonymous.com

Interview with Michael B. Harris – Yoganonymous.com

By | Reviews | No Comments

Great interview with Senior Bikram Teacher Michael B Harris by our very own Andes Hruby over at our friends Yoganonymous.com. “The commercialism of yoga started a very long time ago when our noble teachers asked for a gold coin to impart their knowledge of postures or meditation. It is all evolution and regression at the same time. We do not have to judge it. We just have to practice.” – Michael B. Harris
