Super Brain Yoga

Yoga Asana Series

A tool to improve your life

Yoga as we know has been around for many thousands of years but it’s only in the past couple of years that this exercise has come to wider public notice. In fact this idea of super brain yoga is finding its place in classrooms, medical and rehabilitation centres all over the world. It is a practical application to help people with learning difficulties and for those who want to succeed in life.

We often think of our brain as being two hemispheres and that we either use more the left left or the right. What super brain yoga does is harmonise both sides of the brain so that they

Self Massage

A dimension in self awareness and care

Just like our mind can affect our body, our body can affect our mind. Often times, anxiety and tension will build up in our bodies, making it even harder to get rid of.

What massage does, among other things, is to bring attention to your muscles so you can relax them most effectively. Ideally it’s great to be massaged by someone else, but its also something you can do regularly to help relax and feel better about yourself.

Tips

You don’t need to be an expert, just do what you like in the way of stroking and rubbing over your skin. You can do your head, neck and face without oil, but some

Preventing Breast Sagging

How to have a proud and firm bust

Breasts for many are a social issue, yet every woman wants to have nicely shaped breasts throughout her life. Sadly, this is not possible in most cases due to lifestyle adaptations and the fact that breast sagging is a natural process that happens with age whereby the tissues supporting the breasts lose their suppleness and elasticity.

Breasts usually begin to sag after a woman reaches 40 though it can occur earlier. Apart from age, other factors that cause sagging breasts include overall health, fitness, posture, pregnancy and breastfeeding, menopause, rapid weight loss or gain, strenuous exercise, nutritional deficiencies and the brassier.

Some diseases like breast cancer or respiratory conditions like

Physical Remedies for Depression

A problem of your own creation

Depression first off is something you have created in your own mind and if you feel that some one or some others are responsible for your state of mind, then you must know that you are a slave to that person or others.

The real freedom comes from truly knowing and taking responsibility for yourself, something that’s easier said than done so much so that a guru is often needed to help you sort reality from fantasy.

But here we discuss physical things you can do to relieve depression. Just like our mind can affect our body, our body can affect our mind. Often times, anxiety and tension will build

Baking Soda and Cancer

Cure or Quackery?

Like cannabis, there is a huge amount of testimony that baking soda is effective in eliminating cancers but given the nature of cancers and the reluctance of individuals to modify their lifestyle, baking soda cannot be an across the board cure. It has a slightly salty, alkaline taste and is encoded as food additive E 500.

Sodium bicarbonate is most commonly known as Baking Soda. It’s a natural chemical compound with the formula NaHCO3 composed of sodium ions and bicarbonate ions. In nature the natural mineral form is nahcolite, a component of the mineral natron that is found dissolved in many mineral springs. While Sodium bicarbonate can occur as a solid crystal, it is sold as baking

Yoga Tantra

The art of transformation

Tantra yoga is not a clear classification within western yoga because for thousands of years it has been passed from master to student, and because of inherent dangers within tantric practices the real knowledge has been kept out of the public domain. So unless one is raised within Hindu or Buddhist societies engaged in tantric practise, understanding tantra in any classical sense is impossible without years of detailed study.

Most hear of Tantra as a new age buzz word that has evolved over the past 50 years. Mention tantra to many people and they think of kinky sex and a mystical union between men and women. This is a limited view because there is no

Shaping Humanity

Our ideas and our lives

It seems probable that as described in evolutionary theory, we have evolved over many hundreds of millions of years but over the past 10 million years we became a little more refined as we learned to respond to nature.

One of the biggest leaps in our evolution was a domestication of fire thereby harnessing the ability to cook our food which made it more digestible and bioavailable. The second biggest step forwards was language, systematic use of vocal sounds to convey specific meaning. A third biggest step was agriculture and discovering new sources of food that fostered population increase and free time in some sectors of the community.

Leisure time spawned creativity, improved agriculture,

What Is Yoga?

The science of being human

With the passing of the third International Day of Yoga in 2017 as sanctioned by the United nations, a few thoughts on yoga for the uninitiated.

The word “Yoga” cannot be translated into English. In the Sanskrit, it derives from the root “Yuja,” which is to join or weld together. Just as two pieces of metal are welded together to become one.

So in the philosophy of Yoga, the embodied spirit of the individual becomes one with the Universal Spirit through the regular practice of certain physical and mental exercises. In another definition, Yoga is the art of life and its philosophy is meant to furnish the principles that substantiate and explain that art.

Building a Civilisation

And ensuring our survival as a species

Our current civilisation is on the verge of extinction as modern governments serve money, not the people they are sworn to protect.

If you want to build the civilization of a nation, there are 4 ways:

1. Uphold its family structure 2. Uphold its education traditions 3. Uphold its role models and raise its reference points 4. Preserve nature

To uphold the family: honour the role of Mother as a culture-carrier and home-maker. To uphold the education: honour Teachers, and raise their place in society so that the seekers love and respect them. To uphold the role models: honour the Sages and Seers, the Poets, the Scientists and Scholars, esteem their opinion, listens
