May is for Meditation

With spring’s return, we are feeling a sense of renewal and growth. And with that, we feel inspired to find newness and growth in our yoga practice. For many, the yoga practice consists of asana or physical yoga. But to grow in our study and practice, it is important to explore other facets of yoga. As such, we have declared that May is for Meditation! Read More

3 Ways to Follow the Royal Path

This month at Longwave Yoga, as a kula, we are studying the theme and concept of The Royal Path. When the phrase “the royal path” is uttered, the mind’s eye might conjure an ornate vision of what that path might look like: red carpets, a glittery highway, or a yellow brick road. In other words, we often image that the pathway to royalty is an extravagant avenue that leads us to a being more honorable or powerful than ourselves. But the teachings of yoga pave a royal pathway that is a quiet route inside of ourselves. Read More

Pose of the Month - Shoulderstand

In the spirit of the royal path, this month we are practicing the queen posture of yoga, shoulderstand or Salamba Sarvangasana. Read More

January Alumni: Effort and Ease in the New Year

The New Year can often bring a renewed sense of enthusiasm in all aspects of our lives. We hope you always feel connected to your yoga practice, but this is a potent time to recommit to our intentions and efforts. As Patanjali tells us in his yoga sutra 2.46 – sthira sukham asanam – we need both easeful joy and steadfastness in our practice. Even as the practices may bring us more joy and ease, we also need to recommit to a renewed sense of discipline.  Read More

Eat Like a Yogi - Golden Milk Latte

Spice up your morning routine with a golden milk latte. This warm drink is not only perfect on a chilly January morning, it is also packed full of healthy, holistic ingredients. Turmeric, the main ingredient, is a natural anti-inflammatory. As such, it boosts cognitive function; promotes skin health; and supports heart, joint, and muscle health. The addition of cinnamon and cardamom adds a comforting flavor and warmth to this holistic drink. If you need a little pick me up, we love adding a shot of espresso!  Read More

Chandra's Embrace

We have begun the transition into shorter and darker days. As the curtain of the evening sky lowers earlier throughout autumn and trees shed their leaves, Nature calls us to follow her pattern of transition; therefore, cultivating balance in our lives becomes necessary to maintain inner and outer steadiness. This transition has us unpack our vacation suitcases of summer, and roll out our yoga mats, returning to our practice. We let go of summer’s spontaneity and revisit the roots of our families in harvest and feast. The light foods of summer are replaced with autumn’s earthy, grounding bounty. Ultimately, we find that the outpour of summer energy transforms into groundedness. One way in which Nature provides that steadiness during transition is through the gravitational pull of the moon or Chandra. Read More

Are You Allowing Yourself to Blossom?

April showers bring May flowers--and an exciting time at Longwave Yoga! We couldn't be more excited to share with you the springtime sunshine and the teachings of our upcoming special guest, Maria Garré. On April 28-30, Maria will offer her workshop Therapeutic Rituals: The Art of Living Yoga and Ayurveda. Ayurveda is the sister science to yoga and emphasizes bringing harmony into the body so that you can live as your highest, most authentic self. Spring grants us the opportunity to practice Ayurvedic rituals so that we can harmonize and renew ourselves, revealing our deepest desires and highest truth. Read More
