In Sanskrit, Ayur means life and Veda means wisdom or knowledge. Ayurveda is the innate wisdom of life and our bodies.

Choosing a Yoga School

By: Silvia Mordini If you are asking yourself if you should pursue a teacher training program, you have already started down the path of beginning the most important dialogue of your life. The opening verse of the first chapter of the Yoga Sutras presents the opportunity, “And now begins the study of yoga…” This opening line implies that only once you are ready to be a dedicated student of Yoga, you actually begin your studies. No one else can decide that for you. As teachers, we never drag a student across the threshold of initiation. The old adage, “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear,” applies here.

Self-Study: The Chakra System

The chakras are the seven main energy centers in the body where we receive, absorb and distribute life energies. They are located along the spine, starting at the base and running upwards to the crown of the head. The chakras are described as “whirling wheels of light” and each chakra radiates a specific color and energy. Each chakra relates to specific spiritual, emotional, psychological and physical issues.

As a result a chakra can become either deficient or excessive. Therefore this chakra is imbalanced. Balancing these energy centers leads to our well-being. Practicing asana, pranayama, and affirmations that correspond to each…
