  • How Yoga Changed my Life:  One Student's Story by Keith Larkin

    How Yoga Changed my Life: One Student's Story by Keith Larkin

    How Yoga Changed my Life: One Student’s Story Keith Larkin Hello, yogis. We’re starting something new-ish at Surya Yoga. A few years ago, Annie shared a Student Spotlight with her members, highlighting a student and his or her yoga journey. We’re going to revisit this idea within our blog. We’ll be highlighting two of our amazing students each month. If you are willing to participate, we will have five questions for you to answer. We’ll also need a photo to post with your answers. (It doesn’t have to be a photo doing yoga. It can just be a selfie.) So take a look at our first Student Spotlight that we're calling How Yoga Changed My Life and ....

  • Theme of the Week: Satya (truthfulness)

    Theme of the Week: Satya (truthfulness)

    Theme of the Week: Satya (Non-Lying or Truthfulness) I'm going to tell you about my yoga journey as a way to talk about Satya, truthfulness. Why did I open a yoga studio? Why not a kids dance studio or Pilates or CrossFit? Well, I was a gymnast until high school, then a cheerleader in high school, then I just drank my way through college (why lie?) and went from 130 lbs to 165 lbs. I honestly didn't care that much. I was in a sorority and I smoked and drank a lot. I also had A TON of fun and wouldn't change anything (well, there's that one thing I would change when I really pissed off my very best friend in the whole world senior year). I digress. I graduated from college ....

  • Theme of the Week - Ahimsa (non-violence)

    Theme of the Week - Ahimsa (non-violence)

    Every week of the year has a theme at my studio, @suryayogakc . The themes are the same year to year, I just never tell anyone about them (except those in class). One of my goals this year is to let you know about the theme, even if I'm a little late in the week. Ashtanga means 8 Limbs in Sanskrit. These 8 limbs are paths or guidelines or things we can practice to live the yoga lifestyle. They are: Yamas (moral obligations) Niyamas (observances) Asana (poses) Pranayama (breathing) Pratyahara (turning inward) Dharana (concentration) Dhyana (meditation) Samadhi (bliss or contemplation or being in the flow) Some are done alone, while others happen simultaneously. ....

  • My Yoga Journey by Crysta Baier

    My Yoga Journey by Crysta Baier I t’s a dreary Sunday, and I’m sitting at my favorite local coffee shop reading about Chakras and sipping on mint tea. I’m aware that if you saw my book titled Chakras for Beginners , you might think I was a little strange or new-age-y. But I’m preparing to teach a Heart Chakra yoga class. I’m reading up on the chakras so I have a bit more insight to share with my students. You see, aside from being a teacher of children, I’m also a teacher of yoga. I received my certification this year, the year I turned 50. Becoming a yoga teacher has been something I’ve wanted to do for years, and now ....

  • Theme of the Week- Asteya (non-stealing)

    Theme of the Week- Asteya (non-stealing)

    Me steal? Never! Or do I? This week's theme is Asteya (non-stealing). I'm against stealing, I really am. Leo, my son stole a Mario figurine from a store one time and I made him take it back and hand it to the manager (he was about 7 years old and he cried the entire time, lesson learned!). I say I'm against stealing, but if I think of all the ways in which I've stolen things over the years, I guess I do steal. We all do. You do too. Now wait a second, you say. I would never steal anything! Let me give you many examples of how you and I have stolen. You may have: -Stolen someone's thunder -Underreported your earnings to the IRS during tax time (or overreported ....
