So you’re looking to find the best non slip yoga mats for hot yoga? Look no further! I’ve compiled a list of mats sure to take your practice to new levels. As an avid Yogi, I know the importance of finding the right mat. Your mat is your foundation and home for the class. When it comes to hot yoga, we yogis need to be mentally alert and focused on our practice to ensure we get the most out of our time. Slipping, falling, and feeling unstable can bring you out of focus and ruin your experience, not to mention cause unnecessary injury. That’s why it’s so important to find the right non slip yoga mats for hot yoga!
The medical and pharmaceutical industries rake in billions of dollars each year treating diseases and conditions of all types, including a cornucopia of preventable illnesses. It seems as though Hippocrates's suggestion to "let food be thy medicine" hasn't sunk in yet. If only people employed tactics to curb illnesses before they ravage their bodies rather than acting only post-facto, then perhaps illness would cease to spread.
When you turn 40, you become many things-fabulous, fantastic, fearless (or fearful, depending on your anxiety level), but you only become fat at 40 if you were fat before 40. Now fat is a relative term. Even the skinniest people sometimes think they are fat (and I usually want to force feed them cake), but, for some of us, weight has always been an issue. We can still fit into clothes, for the most part, we can still exercise, but we will never be walking down the street in jeans and a tank top for fear of scaring people or getting approached by a plastic surgeon who might say, "I think I can help you with those bat wings." So, it is really all relative.
Going out to Rockaway Beach has been on my mind for a while now ever since I heard about Buddhist Insights' new retreat center. I meditate daily and I also happen to help people see their minds by teaching meditation. I met Co-Founders of Buddhist Insights Bhante Suddhāso and Giovanna Maselli, in upstate NY when I attended their first organized weekend retreat last fall. Their mission is to connect monastic teachings with lay-people and now have a home right here in Rockaway Beach, NYC. Usually one has to travel a couple of hours to go on a get-away meditation or yoga retreat, but not anymore. Last week they hosted their first week long meditation retreat Dec. 26 - Jan. 1, 2017. Not to worry if you missed it... they are plugging away at keeping programing flowing.
