    From Anger to Violence : Yoga and Meditation, Men and the NFL

    No one wants to say it, but if we get to the heart of the matter, domestic violence and child abuse, or any violence for that matter, is not just an NFL issue, it’s a society issue and even deeper, a male anger issue. Yes, men, I’m speaking to you. It’s time to step up(…)

    Dan Harris: Hack Your Brain’s Default Mode with Meditation

    Dan Harris explains the neuroscience behind meditation, but reminds us that the ancient practice isn’t magic and likely won’t send one floating into the cosmic ooze.

    How DDP Yoga and a Whole Foods, Plant-Based Diet Changed My Life

    So, for almost 12 years I only practiced yoga for exercise. I do live an active life, and have mostly had jobs that require an amount of labor, so yoga has not been the only thing to keep me moving. However, when faced with the idea of lifting weights, or adding in a regular “cardio”(…)
