A Different Way to Twist: Hands-Free Twisting

by Baxter A while back, I started playing around with what I call “hands-free” twisting in seated and standing poses. I can’t recall exactly why I started playing around with this idea, but it may have been inspired by a dynamic standing sequence my wife Melina Meza teaches that includes a hands-free twist.

But how would you achieve this state with your asana practice Can you ju...


The Benefits of Distraction: Tetris vs. Yoga

by NinaThese seem like particularly anxious times (I had trouble concentrating on my work yesterday, did you). But even when they are not, there is always plenty to worry about. Fortunately, according to some scientists, playing Tetris can help. They proved this in a kind of silly sounding study A better distraction: Exploring the benefits of flow during uncertain waiting periods., published in the Journal “Emotion,” where they made people anxious by telling them they were going to be rated on t...
