Just a Speck in Space (Re-Rebroadcast)

I hope you'll enjoy this re-rebroadcast of one of my all-time favorite blogs and episodes of The MOJO Show this week. Apparently it's one of your favorites, too, as the 2nd most downloaded MOJO Show episode! Whenever I catch myself getting daunted by the seeming enormity of it all (and that can be more frequently than I would hope), I remind myself of the nuggets of wisdom in this episode. I hope there's some insight here for you, too, that helps with whatever looming things you've got going on in your week.

Episode 67 - Gamma Breath with Rohi Custage

If you love breath work and if you love feeling great, you want to tune in to this episode of The MOJO Show featuring special guest Rohi Custage! 

She's one of the newest instructors in the MOJO community and she's a specialist in the practice of Gamma Breath. This transformative breath work practice targets gamma brain waves. What is gamma?  Gamma state is defined as a brain state where experience, knowledge and wisdom swirl around and form new ideas - the "ah-ha" experience, if you will.

I hope you'll enjoy this rebroadcast of one of my favorite blogs and episodes of The MOJO Show this week. Team MOJO is busily preparing to be part of Hawaii's biggest entrepreneurial and tech startup conference at East Meets West. We're kicking off the conference with a yoga class on the beach and wrapping it up with an on-stage presentation of MOJO Yoga to all the people of startup land. Whenever I catch myself getting daunted by the seeming enormity of it all (and that's quite frequently), I remind myself of the nuggets of wisdom in this episode. I hope there's some insight here for you, too, that helps with whatever looming things you've got going on in your week.

#FreeVideoFriday - Yoga for Insomnia and Relaxation

#FreeVideoFriday - Yoga for Insomnia and Relaxation

And now, here at the end of another week, we present to you for #FreeVideoFriday Lisa's Yoga for Insomnia and Relaxation. We heard her confession on the podcast that she's a "terrible sleeper" and that was the inspiration for this practice. We hope that whether you're a terrible sleeper too, or you just need to wind down and relax, this practice offers you some soothing reprieve. Enjoy

Slowing Down

Slowing Down

I always feel very blessed to have the luxury of working the schedule I do - for those of you that don't know, I work 3 days a week. When I made the decision to work such a limited schedule it included making many changes. Some were financial, some were personal.  But the bottom line was, it was best for me. For more reasons than going on a money budget, it was also a brain budget.

Yogafy Your Life: Daily Dose of Happiness

Yogafy Your Life: Daily Dose of Happiness

Happiness: it's something for which we spend a lot of time and energy striving and searching. In our culture, happiness is something to be pursued. Yet, science has long demonstrated that happiness tends to be more of a propensity than a result. So, if happiness does indeed come from within, can we do anything to increase our propensity for it? Well, I believe yoga says absolutely yes!

Give Thanks. Let Go. Be Happier.

Give Thanks. Let Go. Be Happier.

Sthira sukham asanam (Patanjali's Yoga Sutras, 2.46). This sutra reminds us that our poses should represent a receptive strength, putting forth a steady effort, yet creating enough space to be receptive. That last part has become very important for me lately. I go through cycles of including more and more restorative yoga and meditation in my practice, the aim of which is conscious relaxation and mindfulness when the strength part of the equation has started to take more than its fair share.

The Dark Side Within

The Dark Side Within

I woke up this morning and just did not want to do yoga. At all. I felt crabby and tired, and the last thing I wanted to do was get up and do some stupid yoga. That's right, I said "stupid yoga." Sometimes, it just starts to feel like, "yoga this, yoga that, yoga, yoga, stinkin' yoga." So, what did I do with myself? I got up and did some yoga. But, maybe not in the way you think…
