    watch the 2 minute preview

    Yoga and its cousins are making their way into the western medical system. One of the ground breakers in this exciting area is our guest, Kalpana Reddy.

    Our host Jane Lanza talks with Kalpana about the benefits that patients receive and how she went from doing work in the community to convincing a group of physicians of the need for her broad range of services. The interview is only 13 minutes but it could have a big impact on you or a loved one, even if they’re not living in New York.

    Our guest, Kalpana Reddy is the founder of Wholistic Care New York (WholisticCareNY.com), a health and healing center associated with the Alice Hyde Medical Center in Malone, NY.

    Todd Norian Interview | Yoga NOW Show

    There are tens of millions of yoga students in the US and a great many more around the world. Spending any amount of time in a yoga class, it’s easy to observe there are many different ability levels, needs, and goals of the practitioners. So, it’s no wonder there are a variety of yoga styles or systems available from which a student may choose. Recently, Yoga NOW had the pleasure of talking with Todd Norian, the founder of Ashaya Yoga. During the discussion, Todd agreed to give us a demonstration of one of the techniques to improve lower back health.

    Todd’s entry into yoga was born out of coincidence. He was on his way to a career as a jazz musician when he stepped into a yoga class and never looked back. But that’s not the end of it! Enjoy the preview of the Yoga NOW show with our host Jane Lanza and the amazing Todd Norian.

    Here’s a question for you. What do you get when you combine yoga, science, art, and bio-mechanics? The answer; you get one great yoga system with amazing health benefits. You guessed it; Todd Norian’s special brand of yoga, called Ashaya Yoga, uses the science of body mechanics artfully applied to the specific needs of the individual. Watch as Todd demonstrates a technique for lower back improvement on our model, Jackie.

    Our guest, Todd Norian is the founder of Ashaya Yoga (AshayaYoga.com), a yoga system that combines biomechanical alignment techniques with empowering and spiritually uplifting heart virtues.

    In addition to the low back improvement demonstration, Jane and Todd go in depth on:

    • What’s the point of practice?
    • How to stay in your heart center?
    • What are the parallels between music and yoga?
    • How do music and yoga relate to channeling creative energy where your body becomes the instrument?
    • Do people need a guru to study yoga?
    • Are group classes most effective or is 1 on 1 a better learning experience?
    • What are the most common injuries in group classes?
    • Demonstration on improving low back problems?

    Thai Yoga Massage | Yoga NOW Show

    Receiving Thai Yoga massage is like being on a chocolate cake diet! There it is, 3 of my favorite things in one sentence. To be clear, Thai massage has a “giver” of the massage and a recipient. I’m speaking from the point of view of the recipient. Our guest, Amanda Young has a simple description of Thai massage; she calls it, “Lazy-man’s Yoga”.

    This month, our host Jane Lanza and Amanda go well beyond that simple description. In fact, Amanda spends about 10 minutes during the show giving a demonstration and instruction for a massage treatment that can be practiced at home.

    Both Amanda and Jane have studied in Thailand with different instructors. They both give recommendations for training in Thailand as well as books and DVDs and North American Thai massage training schools.

    Our guest, Amanda Young is the owner of Shanti Mama Wellness (ShantiMamaWellness.com) in Burlington, Vermont. She specializes in Deep Tissue, Prenatal, and Thai massage and is also a Doula.

    In addition to the massage demonstration, Jane and Amanda go into some depth on the following:

    • History of Thai Yoga massage
    • Educational Background in Thai Massage; Amanda & Jane
    • Differences; Thai Massage vs. Others
    • Cultural Viewpoint of Massage in Thailand
    • Learning Resources
    • Amanda’s Demonstration of Thai Massage (MUST See!)
    • Cautionary Note if Pregnant

    Yoga and Parenting – time for both | Yoga NOW Show

    The expression goes, “kids don’t come with a manual”. If I ask most parents, there would probably be a lot of agreement. But did you ever wonder; do parents just not read the manual? I didn’t. This month we have some very helpful, even insightful tips for parents – no matter what age the kids. And you kids…. listen up too. There’s something for you as well.

    (Be sure and read to the end. We have some changes, hopefully they’re improvements, in viewing the show that I’ll talk about.)

    Our guest, Emily Garrett is a mother of 2 small children, a working mom, a yogi, and the owner of a yoga studio. “Busy” is an inadequate word to describe her life. Modest as she is, it is definitely worth listening carefully to what’s working for her. Frankly, a lot of what she’s doing is very do-able for most anyone.

    I can hear you saying this now; “I’m too busy with the kids to watch a video”. Let me help you get beyond that so you can get the help you need. The video is only 15 minutes long. That’s it, just 15 minutes. Here’s the 2 minute show preview but keep reading after the preview because we’ve gone a step further to help you sleep deprived, time stressed parents.

    This episode (the full length version) and all future episodes are divided into sections. Each section has a short description, just a few words, that you can click on and jump directly to that part of the show. This makes it easy to watch or re-watch sections of interest to you. You can also view the show in multiple sittings rather than all at once. Here’s how you do it; click in the middle of the video to get it started as usual. Then you can click on one of the links to go directly there or of course you can just watch it beginning to end. Either way, we hope this is a convenience for you.

    Here’s a list of the sections in this episode so you can get an idea of the content in this terrific Yoga and Parenting episode of Yoga NOW.

    • The Family
    • Yoga After Kids
    • Applying Yoga to Parenting
    • How a Yoga Practice Benefits New Parents
    • Use Compassion (ahimsa)
    • Benefits of Meditation
    • Beginning Yoga for New Parents
    • Partner Yoga for Parents or Not?
    • Single Parents and Yoga
    • Other Advice
    • Tate’s Debut

    Meditation meets Yoga | Yoga NOW Show

    Oh, I was so wrong! For the longest time I thought meditation was just sitting in a quiet place thinking happy thoughts. Or maybe it was that time just after waking in the morning where my mind created all sorts of clever thoughts of what I would do that day.

    Recently, I was lucky enough to sit-in on a lecture and interview (and film it, of course) with Danny Morris from the Center for Mindful Learning. The result for me was a shift, really a total reset from scratch about my thoughts on meditation. I don’t know how I could’ve gone this long with my mistaken understanding. But I have to say, the way Danny expressed the ideas really makes sense. He gave a great perspective on the connection between meditation and yoga.

    (continued below the 2 minute preview video)

    One fundamental idea is the tie-in of meditation to the 8 limbs of yoga; specifically the last 3 limbs, Dharana, Dhyana, and Samadhi. Here’s the quick translation of these 3 terms. Dharana is concentration, the precursor to meditation. Dhyana is traditionally understood as meditation. The final limb, Samadhi is the end goal of meditation. It’s the place you strive for but few have achieved. Danny talks about his trip to India to find and learn the way to achieve Samadhi. Spoiler alert – the quest remains alive and well for Danny but he did come back with an interesting story that he talks about.

    This month’s episode, Meditation meets Yoga is a combination of a talk between our host Jane Lanza and Danny plus a 12 minute section of Danny’s meditation lecture presented to a class of yoga teacher trainees at the Liberate School of Yoga.

    If you’ve wondered what meditation is about; this episode is a great intro. I certainly learned some things about meditation that I can apply to my time on the mat. So meditate your way through this 27 minute episode, you’ll love it.

    Unique Yoga Gift Ideas | Yoga NOW Show

    Our host Jane Lanza has 2 terrific guests that bring some amazing insight into all things gift related. Whether you’re in the mind of the gift giver or the gift receiver, there is insight that will help you to create a low stress and memorable holiday season.

    Jenn Jarecki is a yoga teacher and former chamber or commerce member. You might be a bit surprised about her view on commercialism and gift giving.

    Miv London is a yoga and meditation teacher and a practicing psychologist at the University of Vermont. She has some very practical gifting tips for us and also leads a short calming meditation called Metta meditation.

    When there are many demands on your time during the holidays; ask this question. How will this action serve me if I do it. How will this action serve me if I don’t do it.

    This episode is loaded with practical gift giving advice that you can use for years to come. Here are some examples.

    • Ask yourself, what do I have to give that can serve this other person. The answer does not have to be at a store. Give to others without a need to be thanked for giving. Give what is personally meaningful.
    • 13 ways to offer service or give low cost or no cost gifts
    • 5 clever ways to purchase a gift that is not necessarily a “thing”
    • 4 tips on charitable giving
    • What practices generate lasting feelings of connectedness to one another? One example is Metta mediation or loving-kindness meditation.
    • Recommendations for buying pre-made gifts and really stretching a buck (pardon the pun)
    • 6 ways to trim the holiday stress
    • The secret to being a great gift receiver

    Everyone will find something helpful in this episode!

    Ana Forrest Interview | Jane’s Yoga Class

    Ana Forrest Interview | Jane’s Yoga Class

    This month Yoga Now has a terrific double-header for you. We have a rarely seen video interview with the extraordinary Ana Forrest. It’s less than 10 minutes long and has a lot of insight and power. A definite “must see”! In the next segment of the episode, we have some excellent excerpts of a class from the Burlington Yoga Conference taught by our own Jane Lanza. (continued below the 2 minute preview video)

    For nearly 4 decades, Ana Forrest has been sharing her unique combination of yoga and emotional healing with people throughout the world. The benefit of her work extends beyond yoga students to include military personnel who have experienced all make and manner of emotional and physical trauma. Ana describes her work as “mending the hoop of the people”. That’s a reference to her strong influence by Native American healing methods and traditions.

    Ana’s book, Fierce Medicine: Breakthrough Practices to Heal the Body and Ignite the Spirit was released in 2011. In the interview, Ana talks a bit about that.

    Included in the interview, you get to watch Ana provide some guidance and healing on our host. That was quite unexpected during the interview and we were thrilled to get it on camera. The interview, originally recorded at a Wanderlust event was bonus content only available to premium members. Due to the power of this interview, we’re making it more broadly available.

    Now for the 2nd part of this episode: The University of Vermont has been the home of the Burlington Yoga Conference for a number of years. During the most recent conference, we were lucky to have our cameras running during a morning class taught by Jane Lanza. The room was packed and live music was performed by Yogi Patrick McAndrew.

    We’ve pulled together a few interesting clips of the class to give you the flavor and feel of what the participants enjoyed. We were able to highlight one of the students to serve as a model for many of the poses during the class. I think you’ll enjoy the short overview video of the class.
