Tara Fraser - The Easy Yoga Workbook is good - comes with a CD you just listen to and takes you through the poses (22) and the book has good pictures of the poses too - also includes a brief relaxation/meditation part at the end.

Hi NM, thanks.

All the "traveling teachers" seem to concentrate at the other side of the globe. No one in Americas.

But there is a link to a nice Ashtanga forum so maybe that's where I'll have more luck.

 

Are there any job centres for yogis? ;-)

Hi guys,

Can someone please help me and advise if there are any websites where yoga teachers are advertising their services and/or looking for work?

I have work for a teacher but the problem is that the location for it is in Brazil and that person has to speak English and at least be interested in a healthy lifestyle.

Any ideas?

The difference between pilates and yoga is subtle yet very different. You can think of Pilates mat class as a vinyasa yoga flow class. It's fluid, seamless, invigorating with focus on core strength. The breath work is very specific and focuses on activating the deepest core muscle groups for spinal health, postural and all over bony alignment vs. a more yoga diaphramatic pranayama. Pilates also doesn't have the spiritual aspect and philosophy of yoga. As a pilates instructor and avid yoga practictioner what I love about pilates is the attention to detail, flow, breath patterns, choreography, and dynamics. I love the meditative mindful aspect of yoga and incorporate it into my sessions with clients. They both target the mind, body and spirit, just from different angles. Of course it all depends on what type of yoga you enjoy. Restorative yoga and a traditional pilates mat class are very different!!! One meant to restore, the other meant to strengthen and invigorate the entire body. Pilates also has seven different machines that build your awareness and strength in a variety of ways. I talk a lot about the differences on my blog Epicself.com. check it out and hope this helps!

I'm not a Yoga teacher, I just learned the Sivananda series 3 months ago in Ecuador from a Swiss guy who had just been through teacher training, and I've been doing headstands ever since with no pain. What really helps me is focusing on putting a lot of the weight on my arms. I feel weight going to the top of my head, but I can always shift the weight more to my arm base and it relieves the top of the head from a lot of stress. From time to time just after doing a  headstand, I sit in child's pose and roll my neck around to loosen it up afterwards. In the series I do, after headstand, comes shoulder stand, plough, and then the lotus pose as a counter move to the prior poses, which seems to help balance out any stress in the neck. 

    That's my 2 cents and I could be completely wrong because I have not been able to find a Sivananda Yoga class in Austin to train with a teacher. Take what I said with a grain of salt as I'm going by what I can remember from 3 months ago, but hopefully one of the more experienced Yogis will chime in soon. =)

i just started doing headstands in my practice -is it normal for the muscles in the back of your neck to be tight afterwards/the following day? my muscles streeetch when i put my chin to my chest (it feels really nice). or could this be a sign that i'm not doing it correctly? i want to do it at home every day on my own without guidance.  thanks :) :)

Thank you so much Michele (or do you prefer Anoop?), I appreciate your advice. Next time I will reduce the time of the postures a bit then, according to my energy level. I have experienced healing (temporary) before by doing daily meridian qigong, so I know it is possible, but the special technique was very time consuming; 3x a day for 3 months. I'd like to explore this yoga technique now, but want to do it in a responsible way, not to play with forces I don't know.   

I love to come back to you when I have a question, thank you :) Best wishes,

Namaste
