Statistics show that Americans are working harder, for longer hours, and are more productive than ever. Yet, few are getting ahead and most are grateful if they can just make ends meet. As stress-related illnesses account for an increasing number of doctor visits, the call to slow down and unplug has gotten louder. But juggling the demands of worldly life can often end up at odds with being attentive to our individual needs. Sometimes, knowing where to best make the trade-off is all we can do.
Today, we show you how to set up a regular mindfulness meditation practice with links to a series of our free streaming audio meditations.

Yoga teachers don't really make a living off teaching yoga classes anymore. Many rely upon conducting yoga teacher training.

Welcome to our new website. The site you're currently looking at is responsive. In other words, it changes shape depending on whether you view it on a desktop computer, a tablet, or a mobile phone. We hope this will make it easier for you to use when you're viewing our site on a tiny screen.
We've also introduced a more modern look and feel, while sticking with the kind of simplicity that we feel is at the heart of yogic practice and so many other good things. We will be continuing to work on further upgrades and bug fixes throughout the year.
Fiji McAlpine and site founder, David Procyshyn, were on Reddit last week to answer questions from the /r/yoga community. There are a few audio clips in the mix as well. We'd like to extend our thanks to the yoga subreddit moderators for inviting us to participate. It was lots of fun!
In this short video David Procyshyn shows you how to make your own yoga bolster out of blankets. Bolsters and other tools are commonly provided to students by yoga studios and are used in a variety of positions and exercises. They are similar to body pillows, but are more firm and therefore provide more support. They are commonly circular or rectangular in shape.
