No one knows exactly how old yoga is. I’ve recently seen images of wall paintings showing Egyptians in poses that look strangely similar to upward bow, dating back to 1180 B.C. There are […]
If you’ve been doing yoga for a while, you may have come across the concept of ‘ahimsa’. It means non-injury, but it goes beyond not causing harm to other human beings – it’s […]
Yes, it’s about to happen, and my body kept up amazingly well with my yoga practice over the past nine months. I feel extremely blessed to have been mobile until the very […]
