Prop It Up: Stretch Straps

Posted on 10/24/2013 by Lindsey Murray in yoga stretch strap

Years ago, my first trip to a yoga studio looked much different than my visits now. Nerves laced with excitement and apprehension, I even recall thinking how odd the props seemed: “Straps?! What are those things for!?”. The world of yoga was becoming more mystifying by the second. Now straps are anything but mystifying and are a staple part of my practice. But there is something healing and often humorous about remembering where you once started.

Prop It Up: Blocks

Posted on 10/3/2013 by Lindsey Murray in yoga props fall techniques asana

Autumn always seems to spur a natural hunger to reassess goals and let out with the old – changing colors, crisp air, fresh starts – even our yoga practice can use some shiny restoration from time to time. Props are perfect tools to immediately bring new insight into a lacklustre practice.

Hello Feelings, I Hear You

Posted on 12/14/2012 by Lindsey Murray in yoga meditation

Do you shut things out? Are the matters you most enjoy masking the ones you perceive as negative? The ones you’re scared others will perceive as negative? If so, we have a lot in common. It reminds me of the childhood nursery rhyme: “rain, rain, go away, come again another day.” The course of nature has proven that rain will most definitely come another day and so too will anxieties and emotions if we bury them.

The Glow of a Yogi

Posted on 10/11/2012 by Lindsey Murray in yoga

Roughly quoted from my journal, June 27, 2012: “Beauty starts on the inside – Westerners have it all wrong with the attention they pay to hair, makeup and artificial things. When your internal systems are happy, it will give you a glow on the outside to make you truly beautiful”. – Yogi Charu

||“Meditation untangles what is tangled” – Buddha||This Eastern-rooted centering technique brings clarity, a gentle calm, energy, connectedness, focus and relaxation. In the West, it’s a powerful healing tool for one of our culture’s biggest pandemics: stress.

Breaking the Barriers to Meditation

Posted on 8/31/2012 by Lindsey Murray in yoga

The scientific discoveries of mind, body and emotional benefits to meditation have been countless - from increased disease prevention to stress and anxiety reduction; sleep improvement to increased productivity. But despite these revelations, meditation is still a spooky word for many people. From a distance, it can be easy to assume it’s too left field for one’s interests or impossible to quiet incessant mind chatter, but notions like this have complicated a beautiful thing.

Chaos is Easy

Posted on 8/15/2012 by Lindsey Murray in yoga

“Chaos is easy – that’s why we’re drawn to it”. With my legs shaking and body on the verge of collapse, the yoga teacher’s sentence reverberates in my mind. It all makes perfect sense - how often do we get pulled unconsciously to negative reactions? And not just when we’re blindly ruled by the struggle in our physical limits as I was in my yoga class, but out there in the real world, too.

5 Evolutions of a Yoga Practice

Posted on 7/29/2012 by Lindsey Murray in yoga

“One reason will bring you to the mat, but a million more will keep you there”. I found myself saying this the other day to someone who’d never tried yoga. It just sounded so clichéd I had to laugh and say, “I swear, I’ve never said or heard that before!” Giggles aside, this statement has been so purely true for me, and many others I’ve met along the path of yoga. Whether we’re called to the mat as our primary means for physical fitness, to complement a rigorous weight or running regime, to become flexible, achieve elegant postures, or simply to calm nerves, it’s safe to say that as time evolves (and time is key), our reasons for stepping on the mat will, too.
