50 Plus Yoga Instructor Dee Greenberg

I began practicing yoga in 1970 at the age of 17, well before yoga became mainstream. I immediately felt the transformative effects of the practice. My attraction to yoga over the years has been mainly due to the mental and emotional changes that have occurred as a result of regular practice.

The fact that I was introduced to yoga before it was mainstream and have stuck with it for over 40 years, is quite unique and definitely sets me apart from others.

In addition to yoga as a fitness workout, my teachings are strongly focused on the mental and emotional benefits of the practice.

I teach people to achieve a high level of physical fitness through the practice of yoga. I also provide people with tools to help them create balanced lives, free of chronic pain, anxiety, fear and worry. Read More…

Oprah’s Birthday, Devotional Kirtan Music – Snatam Kaur

On January 29, 2012 Opray Winfrey turned 58. As I did the research for this blog post, it hit me that I am 16 months older than Ms. Winfrey – so essentially, we are about the same age.

I’ve always looked up to her in some ways as a mentor or big sister. Interesting to find out that actually, I am the older sister. I remember when her show first hit the airwaves back in 1986. I was an immediate fan. I loved how she was so radically honest, empathetic and outspoken and so completely down to earth and real. She was a pioneer, and TV has never been the same. Read More…

Gluten Free, Guilt Free Vegan Dessert!

GENISOY PROTEIN VANILLAHere’s a guilt free dessert that makes for a power packed, nutrient rich breakfast, or light meal, morning, noon or night!

The final product is a vegan, gluten free pudding – It has a bit of a chocolate taste with the consistency of pumpkin pie. You’ll get the sweet taste without the high glycemic index. The flax meal will fill you up and the high protein will keep your brain functioning optimally for hours.

You will need an electric blender. I recommend a Vitamix if you have one.
Warning: contains soy – you can substitute anything for the soy if you are avoiding soy. Read More…

Help! I’ve Lost My Mojo & I Need Your Help!

OK, I’ll admit it! The title is false. I did not lose my mojo but I do need your help!

But before I formally try to enlist you as an accomplice, here is a bit of history. For the past week or so, I’ve been meditating on ways to attract more visitors to this blog.  So naturally, one question that comes up a lot is, what are people hoping to find when they visit this blog?

Now that’s the million dollar question that any good Internet marketer should be asking herself.  But to rephrase the question, I might also ask myself, since this is a yoga blog, what exactly draws people to practice and study yoga?

And as someone who has been teaching yoga for over 9 years, I think I have a pretty good sense of what draws people to practice yoga.

And please don’t be offended by what I am about to say, because obviously people come to yoga for a huge variety of different reasons. There is not just ONE reason to practice yoga. Read More…

IBS – Food, Yoga, Stress

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

When I turned 30 in 1983, my digestive system started to go wacko! Not wanting to be graphic, let me just say there was a lot of bloating and constant pressure in my colon and on my bladder. But let me focus on the colon for a moment. In case you are not sure, that’s the large intestine running down the left side of your lower belly.

Anyway there was a near constant sensation of having to have a bowel movement.  After using the toilet, usually within an hour I would have to go again. And I will not go into details but my elimination was very abnormal. It was quite scary.

This situation went on for months. I had no idea what was causing it. My first line of defense was to see an MD. I still remember her name – Dr. Wanger – and this was almost 30 years ago! Read More…
