Donna Farhi on Teaching + Practicing Yoga

"Each year I do a round-the-world teaching tour, so even though I live in New Zealand, I feel I have my finger on the pulse of issues percolating within the Yoga community. What I have been witnessing over the last decade is a growing chasm between yoga as a status seeking competitive form of physical elitism, and a veritable ground swell of both newbie and established practitioners seeking a return to Yoga as a practical, relevant, and accessible tool for self-care and self transformation. People used to come to yoga to...

The Role of Love in Healing Trauma with Sex Trafficking Survivor Anneke Lucas

Yoga as a tool for healing the entire planet. Through yoga philosophy, meditation, conscious awareness, mindfulness, etc. and also the physical practice, lived spirituality can change the materialistic mindset that has the entire world in chaos. The current top to bottom paradigm is not working. As I've survived child abuse at the hands of several world leaders, I know firsthand the darkness of society and my healing journey through yoga has brought me back to life. The journey inward ­ is needed now to change the paradigm to a model of...

I’m ready to get real with you. Instead of just telling you what YOU should do should do, I’m going to tell you how things actually go down for me. One of the goals I’m toying with right now is to be more transparent. This impulse is probably a by-product of my latest and greatest...

The Joy of Metabolizing Your Own Cellulite with Intermittent Fasting

I hate to admit it, but i’ve only recently gotten a handle on metabolizing cellulite. And if you haven’t yet experienced this, let me tell you — it’s pure joy to metabolize your own cellulite. I had excessive meda dhatu — fat tissue (see Dr. Lad’s table below). We’ve all had that experience in life where too much = poor quality. Now, it’s not like I carried much extra weight or had handfuls of cellulite. But, between you and me and the lamp post, it was there. I’ll let you know what...

You hear a lot about the great income divide, or Economic Divide — meaning economic inequality. (Here’s an image and link to show you how it’s going down in the U.S.)   But what about The Great Ama Divide? I don’t hear about that. But I see The Great Ama Divide everywhere. I’m not looking for it. I just see it. The yogis and vaidyas of the world see it too. I made a short video on what I’m talking about. [embed width="500" height="400"]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g5ssTjLXUxk[/embed] My guess is that the numbers are pretty similar to those of...

Cracking Your Clan Code: The New Family Values

What I’m talking about today is Cracking Your Clan’s Code. Cracking Your Clan’s Code is about codifying your family values to design the household and the future and the relationships you want to experience day in and day out. Our Clans, or families, are operating under a set of shared assumptions that influence our unspoken values. I grew up with a family that held this assumption: Eating ice cream while watching a screen before bed is fun family time. And it was! I loved eating chocolate ice cream while watching the Cosby show...

[Learn Ayurveda] How to Heal your ancestral patterns with Tarpana – Part 1

When I gave this tribe a bunch of options on what I should write about next, ancestral healing shot to the top of the lists. I didn’t think I had much to say about it. Then I started to write. It turned into 2 parts. In this email I set the tone. In the next email I fill you in on the how-to’s of ancestral healing. If that is what you are after - skip this email. It’s full of personal story about my ancestral healing, not how-tos. But, you’ll...
