Metta Karuna On The

As important as it is to practice metta karuna as a formal seated meditation, you also need to take it off the cushion into your life, and your asana practice can serve as a wonderful bridge. To bring metta karuna into your asana practice, recline in a gentle, supported backbend, with a rolled blanket or bolster supporting the lower tips of the shoulder blades, to encourage greater awareness of the heart center. Tune in to how you're feeling as you start practice, not judging whether the heart...

Love Unlimited

Many contemporary yogis interpret Patanjali's Yoga Sutra 1.33 more broadly. Chip Hartranft, an author and teacher of Buddhism and yoga, translates the sutra as saying, Consciousness settles as one radiates friendliness, compassion, delight, and equanimity toward all things, whether pleasant, unpleasant, good, or bad. This broader view is the one emphasized in the Buddhist tradition, where the brahmaviharas are also known as the Four Limitless Ones and the Four Immeasurables, reflecting Buddhist...

If there's a theme to Khalsa's life, it's being ahead of his time. He decided to apply his interest in science to yoga in 1976. But he couldn't find an academic venue in which to pursue it. He went back to school for an advanced degree in neuroscience, with the hope of using it to study yoga. In 1985, with PhD in hand, he looked for a post-doc or fellowship position, but could find nothing related to yoga. Biding his time, he trained his focus on biological rhythms such as the circadian and...

Yoga Postures To Relax Pelvic Floor

In the case of urinary incontinence, the muscles in the area may have grown weak, or hypotonic, usually due to the kind of overstretching that can happen in childbirth. When the muscles are overly tight, or hypertonic, other...
