When the going gets tough...EXHALE

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

At the end of October, with Hurricane Sandy threatening the northeast, I returned to New York from Yoga Therapist training in sunny California. I had to jump right in to prepare for the storm – clearing the gutters and the basement, taking any potential projectiles inside, filling buckets and bottles with water.

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

by Stephani Sutherland

As a practicing psychiatrist for over 25 years, Marilyn Granger, MD, knows something about the inner workings of the brain. But unlike most psychiatrists, Marilyn is also training to become a certified Yoga Therapist with AVI. In an upcoming workshop co-presented with Mirka Scalco-Kraftsow in Sebastopol, CA, Marilyn will lay out some of the ways that Yoga and particularly Viniyoga can promote neuroplasticity—that is, how it changes your brain.  ..
