Yoga is What We Need

 

Wow! I just stumbled across this profound documentary called “The Fire of Yoga” that chronicles troubled youth from the Bronx, Christians in Jackson, Mississippi, and senior citizens in Los Angeles showing how deeply impacting yoga has been in their lives.

From a teen who has been incarcerated, to a woman who fought cancer, to an 81 year-old yoga teacher who used to struggle with drugs and alcohol and was an absentee parent, these people are now experiencing peaceful, positive, healthy, and fulfilling lives as they give back to their communities, enjoy their families, teach others, and live strong lives not only physically but also spiritually. This documentary describes and shows a lot of what I have seen in my own life and those of my students and friends. Let me know what you think.

“Yoga is a way of life. It’s not like a regular exercise. From eating well to thinking well it enhances your spiritual and physical being. Yoga’s got it going on! I think it’s what we need for the new millennium.”

How to turn back the clock on aging without spending a lot of money

Favorite quotes from the above Decoding Immoratily Documentary: “I’m not willing to say the cancer is gone, they just can’t find it anymore. The last 3 biopsies were negative. “If this was a new drug, it would be a billion dollar drug over night. These are things you can do for free simply by changing your diet and lifestyle.” “We now understand at a genetic level that when you change your lifestyle, it changes your genes.”

Powerful video about the Nobel prize winners and their discovery of what’s at the ends of DNA strands: telomeres and their importance in quality of life.

To increase your telomere length and quality of life: exercise and reduce stress and negative thinking. “Telomeres and stress track together so when stress goes down, telomeres are lengthening.”

Yoga helps to do this. So I’ll see ya soon!

Peace, love, namaste.
