The Journey of White Yoga

When Nancy Hanley, White Yoga Founder, was finishing her Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training 10 years ago, she struggled to find yoga clothing in white that looked and felt amazing. A Libran and lover of fashion, she started to sew her own garments to teach and practice Kundalini in. With an innate eye for beauty, she designed clothing that she felt truly great in, both in and out of the studio. She believes that clothing should honor the yogic principle of ahisma, non-harming, so comfort was always taken into consideration. She received so much interest from her peers and students, she began to consider producing clothing to sell. She started with a hundred pants, a goal that would jumpstart White Yoga and provide evidence that her line could be profitable. She…

5 WAYS TO INSPIRE PEACE TODAY

Take 11 minutes to recite a peace mantra, sing a peace chant, pray, meditate on peace.

I breathe out peace. – Om Mani Padme Om – Om Namo Narayana Change your password to something including the word Peace. Every week you use your passwords hundreds of times, make each time count as a reminder for PEACE.

Complaint Free Diet

We have no more right to put our discordant states of mind into the lives of those around us and rob them of their sunshine and brightness than we have to enter their houses and steal their silverware. – Julia Moss Seton When we complain we draw negative things to us because we’re putting out negative energy.

Top 10 Reasons to Try Yoga

Give yoga try and discover what it can do for body and mind. A central premise in yoga is “everything is connected.” That’s clear when looking at the health and fitness benefits of yoga that have long been reported by practitioners and are now being confirmed by scientific research.

PAIN RELIEF. Yoga can ease pain. Studies have demonstrated that practicing yoga asanas (postures), meditation or a combination of the two, reduced pain for…

Why I’m Quitting (and You Should, Too)

“Don’t settle. Don’t finish crappy books. If you don’t like the menu, leave the restaurant. If you’re not on the right path, get off it.” – Chris Brogan I was raised with the immigrant mentality of work harder—and then work much harder—and above all else never quit. I associated shame with quitting, and quitting with being ashamed. But while you certainly aren’t going to get A’s and B’s by quitting, or get into the college of your dreams by quitting, or let alone land your dream job—is it possible that you could live your happiest life by selective quitting? What if we aren’t quitting enough—and not the other way around? Maybe instead of reading articles titled “Why You Should Stay in Your Job” or “How to Know If You Should…
