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.

From Analyst to Yoga Teacher

http://online.wsj.com

Tingting Peng had been in banking for a few months when she started to feel miserable. She had landed an investment-banking analyst job at Morgan Stanley in Hong Kong straight out of college when she was 21 years old. The salary was great for someone her age -- US$50,000 base plus bonus -- but the job was all consuming. "After six months, I felt burned out," says Ms. Peng, who is now 26. Gradually her health began to suffer. One bout of flu morphed into another, with viruses and stomach bugs in between. "I was sick for weeks on end, but I would self-medicate and still go to work," says Ms. Peng. Unhappy and unwell, she spent thousands of dollars on clothes, bags and shoes she didn't need. "I was looking to superficial things to make me feel better," she says.

She left Morgan Stanley after two years, then bounced between finance jobs for another two years. When the last one -- as a research analyst with a hedge fund -- cratered, Ms. Peng took a break and went to see her family in Boston. Gradually the idea of starting her own fitness business began to crystallize. Exercise was the one thing that kept her going during her four-year finance stint.

Minnie Driver: 'Surfing and yoga are my religion'

http://www.noballs.co.uk

Surfing and yoga are so much more than forms of exercise, they are a religion, according to actress Minnie Driver. Driver, who has appeared in films including Good Will Hunting and TV series such as Revisioned: Tomb Raider and Will and Grace, told website monstersandcritics.com that she cannot get by without riding the waves or practicing the Indian meditative poses. "My church is surfing and yoga. If I can get in a surf or practice yoga then I will. "Yoga's great for when you've got a full brain and can't stop the mind chatter," the 40-year-old said. Earlier this month, Marissa Campise, winner of Huffington Post Living's Total Energy Makeover, suggested in a piece for the newspaper that, to ensure she thinks clearly, she too dons her ladies yoga clothing and practices her favourite yoga poses. She said that the form of meditation helps to de-clutter her mind and improve her mental clarity.
