Gift Giving the Yoga Way – Jenn Jarecki & Miv London on Yoga NOW

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Posted, November 26, 2013

Today, do you have images of a festive holiday table filled with food and a house full of friends and family? Or maybe you’re thinking of a fine meal and a quiet gathering with that special person. For all of our friends in the US, Thursday is the Thanksgiving holiday.

Of course we always recommend staying in the present moment, in the NOW moment. For many people, especially during the holiday time of year, that idea is even more important. NOW is the only time when we have the power to make things happen. NOW is the essence of a happy life.

The day after Thanksgiving is the start of a big selling craze for gift giving at Christmas and Hanukkah. It’s a really big “push” for commercial activity. The psychology of selling and economics of the holidays will be left to others to discuss.

But if you’re a bit of a rebel and are looking for a deeper meaning during the holidays or a way to celebrate with others and engage in sincere gift-giving; then listen to the insights from our guests, Jenn Jarecki and Miv London on our November episode of Yoga NOW.

Getting back to the idea of NOW, Thanksgiving is almost here and then it’s Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and the race is on! Or you could check out the show, right NOW and find a different “way of being” that’s soothing to your soul during the holidays.

From Yoga NOW and CNOW.tv; we wish all of our friends around the world, the best of the season. – Namaste

You’re invited to view the free 2 minute preview of Yoga NOW to catch a glimpse of the sage advice from Jenn and Miv. (See the free 2 minute preview below)

In this 38 minute episode, available exclusively to Premium or Single-Episode Members, host Jane Lanza talks with Jenn Jarecki and Miv London about;

• Source of personal fulfillment
• Meaning of the holidays
• Gift giving race
• Flip-side of gifting
• Yoga breath control and grounding
• Permit yourself to say NO
• Give like a yogi – How-to Guide
• And Much More…..

Jenn Jarecki is the Events Director at Lake Champlain Regional Chamber of Commerce in Burlington, Vermont. She also teaches yoga at South End Studio and Laughing River Yoga.

Miv London is a long time yogi and meditation practitioner and also a psychologist working with students at the University of Vermont and in private practice.

Yoga Guide to Happy Holidays – Jenn Jarecki & Miv London on Yoga NOW

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Posted, November 9, 2013

The HOLIDAYS – Ugh. Everyone expects something from you – kids, parents, family, friends, or spouse. It’s even more during the holiday season! They’re expecting gifts, extravagant feasts, and parties. And it’s your job to make that come true, right? You know it and everyone else does too. So you’ll go to the ends of the earth to make everyone happy – even if it means you become miserable.

Where does all of that emotion and motivation come from? If you’re thinking that all of the “must have, must do” push comes from “out there”; that’s only part of the story. Each of us has more to do with what’s happening in our life than we might think!

Try this thought; be the master of all that happens in your life. If things are going well, it’s your doing. If your life seems dull, that too is all yours. The great news is; since you’re laying claim to everything in your life, you can shape it and change it and make it be what you want. You don’t need to ask anyone’s permission before making changes because it’s all yours. You are the owner of the life that you create. You can darn well change it at the time and in the way that you like!

Coming back to the holiday season, Jenn and Miv give you a point of view and excellent practical tips on how you can create a holiday season that matches the dream that YOU have for yourself. (See the 2 minute preview below)

Yoga Will Find You – Author Prem Prakash on Yoga NOW

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Posted, September 29, 2013

Yoga Will Find You – Author Prem Prakash on Yoga NOW

How can you find the teachings of yoga? I mean the good stuff, the things that change lives. Sure, getting tight abs and a firm booty; that’s one thing. Like an iceberg, the physical aspects of yoga represent the small prominent part above the water line. Many people in the west, new to yoga, attend weekly classes. They can spend months or even a few years practicing the postures, seeing some physical results but never learning much about the part of yoga “below the water line”.

Prem Prakash, author of Yoga American Style says that the mental aspects of yoga are actually a bigger piece of the path of yoga than the physical practice. Paraphrasing from Prem Prakash, “yoga will find you”. I take that to mean that once you’ve reached a point of accomplishment in your physical practice and you start thinking about what more is there; you will start to notice the teachers around you and recognize them as such.

Yogiraj is the title given to Prem Prakash by the Institute of the Himalayan Tradition. Yogiraj means an advanced yogi who is living and participating in the world – as opposed to a yogi in seclusion who is disconnected from society and relationships.

Prem Prakash is American born from Philadelphia; “the city of brotherly shove”, as he whimsically terms it. He is able to connect with western audiences with clarity and insight.

In this 56 minute episode, available exclusively to Premium or Single-Episode Members, host Jane Lanza talks with Prem Prakash about;

  • The body is not the problem
  • Fear, loneliness, & confusion
  • The simple definition of spirituality
  • Where is happiness
  • The power of 1 minute
  • Big Biker Dudes
  • And Much More…..

When not writing (he’s authored 4 books and several audio products), Prem Prakash can be found teaching Yoga and meditation in and around Middlebury, Vermont including special classes for the Middlebury College football team. Yes, he’s certainly a yogi “in the world”. Otherwise, he may be in the forest splitting firewood to keep the Kailash Ashram nice and toasty during the snowy Vermont winters.

The Power of 1 Minute – Author Prem Prakash on Yoga NOW

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Posted: September 19, 2013

Yoga is about the physical body and the mind. In America, it’s the physical practice that gets most of the attention.

Prem Prakash, author of Yoga American Style says that the mental aspects of yoga are actually a bigger piece of the path of yoga. Sure, the physical practice is important, there’s no doubt. He says, “practicing the poses is a great way to begin but it’s really an entry way to something bigger” and arguably more important.

Yoga NOW August Episode – Yoga for Better Sex with Lauren Rudick

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]posted August 11, 2013

August is often referred to as the dog days of summer because we (and our 4 legged friends) move a little slower and look for a cool shady place to relax. Recently at the Yoga NOW studio, there was no slowing down; in fact it was heating up and the only mention of dog was downward dog. Lauren Rudick, creator of the popular class, Yoga for Better Sex was our guest on Yoga NOW and talked about her Avigna Yoga, the stunning jewelry line she’s created and her jam packed classes! Our host, Amanda Anderson was even persuaded to get on the mat and go through some of the Yoga for Better Sex flow under Lauren’s direction. Check out the Free Preview below; If you like the sample, you can get access to the full episode (68 minutes) here or you can even join Yoga NOW as a premium member by clicking here; There’s much more that can be written but why read when you can watch the August episode.

The Wanderlust yoga and music festival brought some of the best and most unique people in yoga to the green mountains of Vermont. Yoga NOW was there and talked with Ana Forrest, Seane Corn, Coby Kozlowski, Jordan Mallah, and Annie Carpenter. The weather negotiated with us and eventually provided a dry but overcast day with a view of the mountains in the background. The performance tent that was setup next to us hosted several classes including one featuring a hip-hop music track – that made for some interesting background audio. Altogether, it was a fabulous and unique day! Share it with us! Check out the free preview;
