Overdoing Yoga-Yoga Overload-Every Damn Day-Podcast 761

These days I do so much yoga I have added a podcast about it. Every Damn Day. I wouldn’t have it any other way. Can you do too much? We’ll talk about it in Overdoing Yoga-Yoga Overload-Every Damn Day-Podcast 761.

Yoga Challenge

At the studio where I practice we have something called ‘The Yoga Challenge’. This podcast details how a “Type A” person responds to a ‘challenge’.

Thirty in Thirty

There are different levels to the challenges. Some people do ten practices in a month. Some do twenty. Fewer do ‘thirty in thirty’, First time I signed up for the challenge I thought, there’s no way.

Winning At Yoga

Moreover, as a yoga addict from way back, I realized the way to ‘win’ the challenge is to double dip. ‘Winning’ is finishing first. Especially relevant is the reminder that there is no real ‘winning‘. You simply ‘do’ thirty classes in a month and that’s the challenge. But it’s fun and even more challenging to try and finish first. That means two classes a day. For some, it might mean three. How much is too much?

Teachable Moments

In addition to pushing yourself, the challenge and ‘race’ to the finish line has some very teachable moments. I talk about them in Overdoing Yoga-Yoga Overload-Every Damn Day-Podcast 761.

No Sleep

Yes I do the challenge every time the studio does it. It has deepened my practice. Yes you get sore. Yes you get tired. Who cares though, right? It has also raised my consciousness to the point where I don’t sleep and I am very energetic. What’s wrong with that?

Yes You Can

In conclusion we don’t want to cause injuries. However sometimes when we think we can’t we find out we can. By the way, these yoga podcasts are always done from the point of view of a lifelong student of yoga, not a teacher. These are my impressions as a humble student.

ADHD-Solitude-Technology-Yoga Therapy In Modern World-Podcast 718

Facebook. Twitter. Snap Chat. Social gatherings. These days it seems like we’re around people all the time. Suddenly solitude has become a ‘thing’. We’ll talk it in ADHD-Solitude-Technology-Yoga Therapy In Modern World-Podcast 718

ADHD Is The Culprit?

Moreover I’m starting to hear a lot of talk about Attention Deficit Disorder. ADHD is the culprit in almost every analysis of what’s wrong with the world. To be sure there are places where smartphones aren’t kosher. On the other hand maybe we can put the judgments on hold.

Yoga Eases The Pressure Of Modern Life

Most noteworthy is Yoga’s role in easing the pressures of modern life. I call these podcasts ‘Always A Student‘ because I am not a teacher. Naming my yoga podcasts this way also keeps me humble. They are designed to share my life experience as well as my experiences as a yoga student. Learn more in ADHD-Solitude-Technology-Yoga Therapy In Modern World-Podcast 718.

Solitude Kicks Ass

These days I prefer solitude. Life and a daily Yoga practice have taught me that I need more time to process events in my day to day. Spending time alone is a great way to process. Most of us have a lot running through our minds. An hour a day on the mat is usually the only time where we can breath and be free of the constant mental chatter.

Smart Phones On The Mat

When it comes to modern attention deficit disorder, in this free wheeling talker, I get into teacher’s reactions to smart phones in the yoga studio. I also talk about judging a younger generation. Are millennials sitting on their yoga mats finishing up the day’s emails and texts, or checking their social media feeds really all the ails the world?

No Place Better For ADHD Than The Yoga Studio

In conclusion, I think hyperactive people perceive life differently. Rather than some kind of condition to be ‘treated’, what if ADHD isn’t some kind of mutation to allow us to better use fantastic new technology. One of the cool things about being hyperactive is, we also have a great capacity for exercise.

I can’t think of a better place to enjoy being hyperactive than the yoga studio.

Vibrating At A Higher Frequency With Yoga-Always A Student-Podcast 704

I’ve been practicing yoga for almost twenty years and so have experienced a few of the promises of yoga. These days I’ve noticed much stronger effects. We’ll talk about it in Vibrating At A Higher Frequency With Yoga-Always A Student-Podcast 704.

How Yoga Effects Chakras

Most noteworthy is the fact that I have never been one to believe or study chakras. I practiced yoga because it calmed me down and made me feel good.

After twenty years it’s clear yoga is doing much more than that.

Don’t Care About Petty and Nasty Political Fights

After years spent in the radio industry and a talk show host focused on politics I find it almost impossible to engage in what I perceive as petty and nasty fights about personalities.

How Yoga Changes A Student’s Vibration

One of the promises of yoga is that after a time a practitioner’s vibration changes. We operate at a higher octave. In Vibrating At A Higher Frequency With Yoga-Always A Student-Podcast 704 I’ll share some of my experiences on the mat leading to a higher vibration and how that has effected my life.

Higher Anxiety Levels In Society

Especially relevant is the trigger for this podcast. More Americans report increasing anxiety levels about the future. We often feel like some terrible thing is one step away from happening. Analysts blame our mobile devices and twenty four hour cable television news.

Don’t despair. It’s possible to disconnect and stay aware of what is happening in the world. What’s more, practicing yoga takes away the desire to be connected, so you can stay on top the latest developments without losing it. It’s a good thing.

Yoga Every Damn Day

Daily practice. Chakra tuning. Doing 108 sun salutes on New Year’s Day. Posture clinics. Yoga every damn day has given me greater empathy, allows me to tune into the moods of other people and slows things down enough for me to understand what’s going on. For a type A, intense person, that is a a huge change.

Oh I still have an interest in analysis and history, news events and dare I say it, politics. However, my approach and how I talk about those subjects has changed. For the better.
