    Reasons to Take Online Yoga Teacher Training

    Although there are many criticisms of the concept of being a Yoga teacher in 200 hours, it is even more questionable to do these 200 hours in a period of only one month. Many Online Yoga classes offer classes extended over a period of 2 to 3 years. And there are a growing number of classes offering an intensive course over a 4-week period.

    The first time I ever heard about minimalism was from the Netflix Documentary Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things.

As it turns out, trying to part with your things isn’t all that simple. I got caught up in sentimentality, guilt, and the feelings of “but what if I need it some day?”.

    Placebo, Scams, and the Body

    Placebo, Scams, and the Body

    Like a lot of people nowadays I spend a lot of time surfing Facebook. I am sharing images of dogs and puppies being cute and kittens being silly with their best friends. However, I have been surfing the web for work out routines that are easy to follow and I can do anywhere. Of course, that affects my Facebook feed. I have been seeing many ads for pills, teas, and coffees that are helping people lose weight, but does it really work? Can a pill slim you down into what you want your body to loo like? The answer is no. No, a pill or a tea cannot slim you down to what you want your body to look like. You might want to know why? well, let me tell you with the research I have conducted with the help of my sister. I first asked her about these products because being a scientist and all she has to know something about these weird products that people are buying. Her response was that if you found a compound in a plant that increased cell metabolism, but that would eventually cause cancer because your metabolism is tightly regulated to prevent the release of reactive oxygen species. So, you would be doing more harm to your body then anything. Most of these ads advertise that they are made from natural ingredients and I think this is where people get caught up in it and start believing it. I, then asked myself "could it be a placebo effect taking part in this?" That's when I received an article called "Expectancy, Self-Efficacy, and Placebo Effect of a Sham Supplement for Weight Loss in Obese Adults" apparently there was a study done to study this phenomenon: All participants were randomized to 1 of 3 conditions:

    Reasons Older Adults Continue Their Education

    Narrow minded people often make false assumptions regarding situations where they are not aware of the details. People tend to put their own spin on why others make the decisions they do, and usually they are wrong. This is very true when it comes to adults over age 50, who are not sitting in a rocking chair waiting to die. One area in question is why senior citizens decide to go back to school. The small mind, associates college education with youth and trying to obtain a good paying job. While that is one aspect of higher learning, there is so much more to why older men and women decide to continue their education. Please consider the following.

    My Life with Narcolepsy

    My Life with Narcolepsy

    Narcolepsy is a health condition.It is caused by a reduction of a certain protein produced by the brain called hypocretin, which affects sleep cycles. Normal sleep should consist of REM (Rapid Eye Movement) and non REM stages. REM is the stage of sleep at which dreams occur. When I go to sleep I will start dreaming within 10 seconds, and my dreams wont stop until I wake up.This due to lack of non REM sleep. This is both energy consuming and exhausting. Sleep is the only time your brain get to actually rest.To me, my brain is never resting. That beautiful filtering process scientists talk about when you sleep never happens to my brain. Toxins over time will eventually build up. Is it affecting my cognitive abilities? I have watched my self slowly transform from the child who had the highest IQ, to the adult that cant spell words correctly, to an adult who cant calculate simple additions, who sometimes struggles to read.The answer is yes.I have a very strong will. I was the student always sleeping in the back of the class room, all through my high school years.I watched my teachers watch me sleep and I didn’t say a word, I got yelled at, and even kicked out of class room, still didn’t say a word. Although I was already diagnosed with Narcolepsy, I chose to keep it to my self.By the end of the year I was still the Valedictorian student. This continued during my college years,I was notorious for being sleeping in classrooms,in hallways,everywhere.Still succeeded to astonish my professors.This has been my coping mechanism to this damn disease, to constantly have an inner challenge that no one knew about. By accomplishing a healthy person’s accomplishment I felt rewarded. I did not need anyone else to know that. I have always hated to look weak. I remember fighting with my mother when I found out she had told couple of our family members. I can fall in sleep on the couch and no one can tell that I had a condition, but once they knew, they looked at me differently. I HATED IT! Don’t look at me differently, don’t treat me differently,don’t worry about me or feel sorry for me. I GOT THIS.This Mother F***er is not getting the best of me. NOT YET.

    My yoga journey.. so far.

    My yoga journey.. so far.

    My first encounter with yoga happened almost fifteen years ago. I was a freshman in high school and went up to my room, turned on the tv, and stumbled upon the fitness network. A show had just started and it began with these women doing poses with this strange dark watery scenery and these very mystical sounds in the background. I had no idea what I was watching. But I kept watching and felt almost hypnotized by their movement. I started watching this show daily for the remainder of my high school years and kept a very quiet personal practice. I was an odd duck in high school, I was what some people would refer to as an “emo” kid, and practicing yoga alone in my room helped me feel connected to something more powerful. I began to dig deeper into the philosophy side of things and tried my best to embody my practice mentally and physically. As a teenager, this was very difficult but I always tried my best.
