The Therapeutic Benefits of Yoga Props
Props are ideal for the practice of restorative Yoga, as they can aid the elderly and people with joint problems, pregnant women, heavy people and people with muscle weakness.

How to Do Safe Yoga – 2
May I point out a few telling differences between the Eastern philosophy and the Western one to prove my point? East is more laid back, takes it easy, accepts things as they come, some more fatalistic than the others, ideally tuned to discipline, method and old traditions.

An Introduction to the Preyas
If you consider the role of preyas in a Yoga asana practice, your awareness of your moment-to-moment choice of what is pleasurable over what is beneficial will become quite apparent. Take the example of the practice of the series of Warrior Poses. Do you bend your extended knee to a ninety-degree angle, or do you “fudge” a little bit and only bend your knee to a seventy-five degree angle?
