Yoga Is Going To Save Your Brain

Yoga Is Going To Save Your Brain

Do you vaguely dislike yoga? Do you feel weird about trying to bend your body into pretzel positions in front of strangers? Do the clothes all bunch up in ways that are vaguely uncomfortable? Is there always one guy in the class who keeps grunting in a way that feels strangely pointed? Well, that’s too bad, because it’s either that or fail every test you’re ever exposed to, because yoga is going to save your brain. More »

The Blissology Project May Get Me Through The Stressful First Work Weeks Of 2012

The Blissology Project May Get Me Through The Stressful First Work Weeks Of 2012

Only one work week of 2012 is done (though for many of us not even a full one), and we are already stressed. The backaches are here from sitting all day, the tenseness in our hands is back and our eyes are tired from looking at the computer screen already. This is the time of year when we need to take care of ourselves the most and you know one of your resolutions was to get in better shape. That is where the Blissology project comes into play.

The $10 pass gets you access to four streaming vinyasa yoga classes led by Eoin Finn: yoga teacher, TED talker, and founder of the Blissology project, whose happiness and calm is contagious (even through streaming video). You also get access to the Blissology Project Booklet, which outlines Eoin’s mission as well as the principles of his 30-day “Commit to Bliss” program. More »

Power Yoga From The Comfort Of Your Living Room

Power Yoga From The Comfort Of Your Living Room

Now that I have kids, the gym has become somewhat of a luxury. Most moms I know complain the only way to squeeze in a proper workout is to get up at an ungodly hour in the morning or to try and motivate once the kids are in bed. Or they head to the gym on weekends, as lots of women do, but the mommy guilt is all-consuming. Then there’s the whole treadmill-in-the-basement concept which, let’s face it, is soooo ’87.

Luckily, we’ve discovered a pretty cool solution to whole working-out dilemma that plagues busy moms. Our sister site Blisstree has partnered with The Blissology Project and Toronto’s 889 Yoga to bring streaming online yoga classes directly onto your laptop. They’re led by master yogi and hardcore surfer Eoin Finn, a Vancouver native and self-described “blissologist” who believes in a holistic approach to health (for example, combining power yoga with food awareness and an appreciation of nature).

Get Your Health Back On Track With Blissology

If you’re like most Americans, you’ve probably resolved to lose weight, diet, or work out more this year…and every year for the past few years. But if the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results, then that’s just crazy. Which is why we think you should rehab your resolutions. Instead of taking your tenth stab at losing those last few pounds, or throwing hundreds of dollars at an expensive detox cleanse, try Eoin Finn‘s Blissology Project: We bet you’ve never done before, and we swear it can do a lot to help you get your health back on track after an indulgent holiday season.
