A year of living Oprah is no life at all

http://www.theglobeandmail.com

What’s it like to follow the lifestyle guru – to the letter? Expensive and confusing, says the author of Living Oprah. Robyn Okrant has a complicated relationship with the most powerful woman in the world. She says she isn’t an Oprah hater or a superfan – she’s simply intrigued by the mogul’s influence on American women. In 2008, Ms. Okrant abided by all the advice the icon doled out on her show, in her magazine and on her website. Along the way, she spent $4,781.84 – plus 1,202 hours and 1 minute – as she followed the lifestyle guru’s instructions including taking a 21-day vegan cleanse, buying a crisp white Brooks Brothers shirt and seeing Céline Dion in concert. The Chicago yoga instructor recently published a book about the experience called Living Oprah. By the end of the year, she told The Globe and Mail in a phone interview, she was unable to distinguish her own point of view from Oprah’s and felt unclear on whether she really was living her “best life.” You mention many times in the book that you were on a tight budget. How did you deal with all of the things that you needed to buy for this project?

Yoga teacher going to trial for sex charges

http://www.nbc11news.com

An Aspen yoga teacher is headed to trial next month on charges of groping his students in yoga postures. A lawyer for 48-year-old Steven Jon Roger says any contact between the yoga teacher and his students was a routine part of his yoga instruction. The case goes to trial after Roger refused a plea deal on Tuesday. Roger refused the deal to plead guilty on two misdemeanor charges of sexual contact without consent. The yoga teacher said he wouldn't plead guilty because the convictions would have resulted in a lifetime on the Colorado Sex Offender Registry. Prosecutors say the contact between Roger and his students was under their clothes - not a part of routine yoga instruction. A jury trial will be scheduled for March.

New workout generating a lot of hoopla

http://www.dailynewstranscript.com

Round and round go the pounds, according to hula hoop fitness instructor Allyson Makiej. Makiej is introducing students to hula hoop training as the latest exercise regimen targeted to tone muscles, gain balance and lose weight. Yoga, she said, plays a large part in her hula hoop exercise. “Yoga helps my students stretch themselves through a variety of positions. This stretching opens up the students. With this technique, one woman, who was 70, was able to get up from the stretching and be able to do the hula hoop. She couldn’t do it before the stretching,” she said. “I open up students in a nurturing kind of way, which is the opposite of what a lot of workouts are usually about.” Markiej, 46, is based in Lowell and has been training students in Westford and surrounding towns for the last two years. She uses a three-way approach to fitness: yoga, hula hoop movements and natural foods nutrition. “The combination of those three for me has been phenomenal,” she said. “When I teach these three things I feel as if I am teaching a Western take on Eastern philosophy. This lends itself to one-on-one sessions but I also do groups.”

Finding balance between the gym and yoga

http://www.chicagonow.com

I recently joined a gym and started a pretty intense cardio and weight training routine. It's a nice contrast to yoga, but my muscles get so tight, that it's changing my yoga practice! I don't flow like I normally do and I don't feel in my body. The day after an intense jump rope session, my feet were so tight I could barely feel myself standing on the mat! How do I find balance between going to the gym and keeping my yoga practice going strong?,Yoga instructor and certified personal trainer Arnold Prosperos answers: It is a nice contrast! Continue with that line of thought and continue to step out of the box with your physical and yoga training. Since your body is comfortable with doing a type of movement exercise such as vinyasa yoga, once you introduce a new type of exercise, cardio or resistance training, you won't feel "in your body." This is because you are vigorously stretching and strengthening your body and mind in ways that you are not accustomed. Your mind and body simply become comfortable with your yoga practice. Now that you have introduced a new variable into your system, everything feels different.

The Big O in Om: Yoga for Hotter Sex

http://thernewsreporte.blogspot.com

Enlightenment is great and all, but doing yoga will also pay off in a very immediate, extremely earthy way: in the sack. In ancient times yogis practiced abstinence from sex so that all of their energy could be directed toward yoga and spiritual advancement. Makes you wonder: How could these supposedly wise guys have gotten it so wrong?. Today yoga lovers are finding that more time on the mat means more--and steamier--time spent reveling in their newly toned bodies. To take a walk on yoga's carnal side, add these sex moves to your yoga routine for overall better sex. Or just do them by themselves to turn up the heat. Flex Time Is Sex Time
Having more flexible muscles and joints definitely helps in assuming those compromising positions. Opening your hips in particular gives you a wider range of motion in your nether regions, allowing for more direct stimulation in just the right spots. After all, one micro-movement in missionary is sometimes all it takes to ring the bell.
