In this week’s Overheard in Yoga Class, Marc Holzman reminds us that whatever happens in the body will reflect in the mind and whatever happens in the mind will reflect in the body. So when we meditate or when we begin the practice of Hatha yoga, moving the body, it brings you in sync.
In this week’s Overheard in Yoga Class, Tiffany Cruikshank explains that most of us don’t realize how much of an impact that fear has on our daily lives, the power it has to limit us and our capacity for greatness.

In this week’s Overheard in Yoga class, Marc Holzman explains the meaning of Mudita: A sympathetic joy. To relish other people’s achievements and to find joy in other people’s prosperity.

In this Pose of the Week, Stephanie Snyder walks us through Scale Pose or Tolasana. The best way to start is to press your hands into the floor, draw the belly back and lift your crossed legs.

In this week’s Overheard in Yoga Class, Steven Espinosa explains how sometimes we have these ideas about what a pose should look like, so when it comes time to practice, we try to somehow jam our body into the pose.

In this Overheard in Yoga Class, Tara Judelle explains the power of forgiveness and letting go. When you carry around anger and resentment, it’s like carrying around a 100 pound suitcase all of the time – it’s too heavy. Holding on to anger, whether you realize it or not, robs you of the freedom and the energy and the space and the love that you know is your authentic self.
