Teaching Yoga Students about Removing Limiting Beliefs that Create Lack

Practicing the art of Yoga on a regular basis helps to eradicate a sense of individual separateness and lack. The comprehensive art of Yoga is not just limited to physical asanas, it also includes breathing techniques, which increase the circulation of prana or life force energy, in addition to meditation and contemplative practices that help to ease anxiety, depression and an abiding sense a separateness.

Yoga for Restless Legs Syndrome

Virasana, or Hero's pose, is excellent for helping with symptoms of restless leg syndrome. Since there are numerous modifications, it is accessible for the new practitioner and the seasoned yoga student alike. If it is inaccessible for the buttocks to rest on the floor, the practitioner can sit on a bolster, pillow, or folded blankets.

Teaching Yoga: Choosing the Best Yoga Mat

One of the benefits of practicing yoga training is that practitioners need few pieces of equipment. The most basic piece of equipment in a yoga class is the mat. Lightweight and small, mats afford a yoga student to practice pretty much anywhere.

The Main Indian Yogas

Jnana Yoga: Union by knowledge; this is the path of spiritual wisdom and knowledge, in which the intellect penetrates the veils of ignorance that prevent man from seeing his True Self (Atman). The disciplines of this path are those of study and meditation. To some degree Vedanta Yoga and Jnana are one in the same.
