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.

Would you ever admit to being greedy?
I mean, not necessarily all of the time, but during certain moments of your life?
It’s a difficult question to answer, isn’t it, since greed is so hard to define. Also, it requires deep self-analysis as well as utter honesty.
“This person that I am talking to is boring.”
“My father was mean to me.”
“I wish my husband expressed his love or me more often.”
“I no longer want this person to be my friend.”
“I’m sorry that I hurt you.”
We all come to our mats for different reasons. Whether it is to calm the mind, open the shoulders or invoke transformation, every reason is just as valid as the next.
Take this journey with me. Take yourself back to a moment in your life when you felt hurt, betrayed or unable to handle what was happening.
Can you remember how you felt? What you were thinking? What your body was doing? How you handled it? How you felt afterward?
The nice thing about looking back is that time can often give us perspective. Can you now look back on this moment and sit with this feeling without judgment or blame, aware of it as though it were someone else’s feelings? This requires a great level of non-attachment and genuine curiosity.
Tomuno.com is giving away a natural rubber yoga mat for unheated yoga to one of our lucky site members. We've tested one out ourselves, and they are lovely. The dense rubber provides a great combination of padding and grip, which is especially helpful if you have sensitive wrists or sweaty palms. They're more eco-friendly than the plastic mats, and the odor is not as unpleasant as the petroleum smell you often get from new plastic yoga mats.
We all know that yoga is good for us generally, but what exactly are the benefits—and the risks—to our health as a result of our practice? We found an article over at WebMD that goes into great detail about the rewards of yoga, and what you need to do to avoid injury. Of course, it's especially important to pay attention to staying safe when you're doing online yoga videos, since there's no instructor on hand to look out for potential problems.
We’re so proud to finally show you the results of our hard work. Welcome to the new DoYogaWithMe.com! It’s the same fantastic website that you’ve come to grow and love, with a few new features and a brand new look. Best of all, our online yoga videos are still totally free.
Let us know what you think by sending us an email. We’d love to hear from you.

Fall is officially upon us. The trees have turned brilliant burnt shades of orange, yellow and red, decorating the ground like confetti. The days are getting shorter, and the weather cooler. Bring on the sweaters, soup, red wine and hot baths!
