With spring finally showing signs of its arrival, I am beginning to feel the change in the air as well as see it popping up through the hard earth. Nature consistently demonstrates the Law of Change. Change happens everywhere and with everyone, and it happens constantly. Everything is in the process of becoming something else.

However, while inevitable, change is not always welcome.

Well here's something potentially unsettling. Kind of a no-brainer headline (maybe?). Not to make your blood boil, ahem, but research is showing that your internal body temperature and heart-rate could reach super dangerous levels in this type of class causing the risk of heat-related illness if you're not careful.

For those of you new to teaching kids' yoga, Earth Day is a terrific time to offer your services at an Earth Day fair or festival as a way of sharing your love for the earth with kids and also gaining exposure for yourself or your kids' yoga business.

Introducing CrossFit Yoga. What happens when two popular fitness cultures clash? A super hardcore vibe, AMRAPs (as many reps as possible) of sun salutations, and a lot of involuntary vomiting on the mat. This silly video from College Humor demonstrates exactly why, like Diet Coke and Mentos, the two shall not mix well. Actually, you [...]

Stand back, SUP Yoga, there's a new super cool yoga trend in town. In fact, it's so cool it's freezing. It's snow pile yoga! That's yoga on top of the ginormous piles of snow/dirt/garbage, you know the ones the snow plows create on the side of roads and parking lots. Why not make the best of [...]

Teens have come to their senses and are ditching modern torture devices also known as jeans, or denim, or, to some early adopters, dungarees. They are, instead, opting for the comfort and stretchiness of yoga pants causing a spike in what the industry folks now call the annoyingly titled category of "athleisure." According to research [...]

Kids say the darndest things, and most of the time, they're brutally honest. This short film called "Just Breathe" features a bunch of kindergarteners sharing their thoughts on what it feels like to be angry and mad and why it kind of stinks to feel that way sometimes. "You sometimes punch stuff and people when [...]

It's here. The video for "Yoga" by Janelle Monae Yes, there is some yoga in it. Well,  yoga pants, at least. We cringed at first, too. Monae, soul songstress turned apparent pop diva, released the song a couple of weeks ago and, honestly, we all weren't sure how we felt about it. On the one [...]
