Yoga, wellness, health and more

Postcards From The Heat started way back in April of 2009 by our long time blogger Yoga Lily, who, was a head of her time. For the relaunch of our website we’ve brought back some of her posts as a reminder of the high analytical standards we need to practice.

I Dream of Camel with the Rising Arc

Whenever I wish I were doing yoga instead of what I am really doing—please don’t chastise me for daydreaming and mindlessness while doing the dishes or awaiting recovery from [...]

The Tailbone’s Tale

The mind is located not only in the skull but the back.  After all, that’s where your spinal cord is, the communications system linking body and mind, an integral part of the [...]

Take Aim

How can Bikram yoga help me and you achieve big, deep-souled goals?  Help ensure that we persevere in the work required to achieve these goals? The discipline that trains the [...]

Pretty Poses? Optional

  We all love those pretty poses. Who isn’t mesmerized by a perfect standing bow pulling pose?  Such beauty is inspirational, but a vertical split just ain’t a practical [...]

Gain from Pain

Pain is no fun. I am not a fan of “no pain no gain so I practice around my injury, skipping postures.  I attend class regularly, practicing a mindful, humbling, and generative [...]

Heel to Heel

My natural posture is dreadful which makes me an alignment freak on the mat. My new tool—okay, my new toy—is ensuring that the heels of hands kiss properly and that the heels [...]

Doing It Twice Forever

Only boring people are bored. Likewise, people who complain that Bikram is repetitive are people busy repeating their postures. It is entirely possible and actually preferable [...]

Opposites Connect

In romance and physics opposites may attract, but whether they connect is another matter entirely.  In yoga, though, when you exaggerate the oppositions, oddly enough, they [...]

Pine for a Fine Spine?

Lately, I have prioritized a strong back and elongated spine. In Bikram Yoga, and in Pilates, the saying goes, “healthy spine, healthy life.” Sounds trendy or preachy? Recall [...]

Dance With Your Limits

Does accepting a limit mean accepting defeat? Not in Bikram yoga. Accepting the limit is just the beginning. The limit I mean, of course, is the everpresent heat-n-humidity.  [...]

Flowing in the Wind

Even Bikram yoginis drift out of the city in the summer. We ride the urban heat waves out to their very edges, where they dissipate, where the streets have no names, where [...]

Calm Eye of the Storm

Standing bow-pulling pose is a common fave, for its loft and beauty. I think also because holding the pose demands that we remain calm in the eye of a muscular storm. The pose [...]

Abdominal Domination

The 14 killer sit-ups in the Bikram series are just one way to work the abs in class.  The others are less obvious but equally effective, whether you want the six-pack variety [...]
