Why Athletes Need Yoga



In my career as a basketballer and time as a cage fighter I amassed around 40,000 hours of high-level, high-impact physicality…in that time I also suffered a number of injuries and underwent exactly five surgeries. If you had to live in my body…who-wee. My knees creek when I struggle out of bed to pee every morning. (I’m 37 years old, incidentally.) Somewhere around the age of 30, the miles were wearing on me and I made a conscious choice to invite balance into my life through a more conscientious engagement of physicality… I had to ask myself, “How do you...

To Cleanse or Not to Cleanse… that is the question



Great time of year to cleanse... Course, if you're like me, there's never really a great time to deprive yourself of all that bad shit that we like so much, is there? But kind of the same way you rake the leaves in the yard, winterize a motorcycle engine, or quit drinking for a spell to give your liver a break before the holidays, cleansing can just be about giving the body a break... When it doesn't have to digest – or not so intensely – it opens up at least the possibility of devoting those calories to higher considerations....

Why I Can’t Castrate Gonzo



“Is he yours?” I get this a lot when I'm walking @Gonzobulldog. “Well...” I hesitate – can you really own a living being?, “...we live together if that's what you mean?” Because of that – and a whole host of other reasons I'll get to – I just can't do it... I also can't call it “neutering”. I'll call it what it is – cutting the dog's damn balls off. And here's why I won't get Gonzo's balls cut off... It's not just that I have a hard time reconciling myself with the idea of cutting an animals nuts off...

I’m Not a Very “Good Yogi”



I'm not a very 'good yogi'. (And here I use both 'good' and 'yogi' pretty damn liberally.) For instance... I'm a little too attached to worldly possessions – I've lost two pairs of Prada sunglasses in the last two months and their loss has effected me deeply. If you've seen them, for Gods' sakes PLEASE return at least ONE of them... I have a helluva temper, and though I only stopped punching holes in walls because I'm also phenomenally lazy (and patching them proved to be a pain the ass), I still lose my shit regularly. My face wears a...

Six Nuggets of Wisdom I Learned from Anger & How We can Use them to become Better People.



For most of my life, I have been a notoriously angry S.O.B. At age 27, I actually started fighting in the cage in order to have a healthier outlet for my rage. The other day, a student asked me, “How do you deal with your anger these days?” Short of stepping into the octagon, this is what I have to offer: Recognize it: Nothing good comes from ignorance. As yogis, there’s phenomenal pressure on us to be perfect. But ignoring it, pretending we’re indifferent, or that we’re unaffected by it will not invite you to successfully integrate anger. (In fact,...

What to do When You Only Have 5 Minutes to Prepare to Teach a Yoga Class.



As a yoga student I would prefer that we take hours to prepare to teach a yoga class—hell, a lifetime ideally. But, as a teacher, I acknowledge that some days life just won’t allow it. Dog pukes up a bird on the floor, car won’t start, traffic holds you up, your mom (or kid) calls with a fresh emergency as you arrive at the studio. Iyengar—God rest his soul—would tell us to stay home if we have diarrhea or if it’s that time of the month for ladies. Here’s a few things you can do, however, to get your shit together when you...

Why You Need to Get Over Your PTES – Post Traumatic Election Syndrome



Aristotle once said, “Societies get the leaders they deserve.” We seem persistent in our fervent hope in the system’s ability to right the course our planet is on, perhaps because the challenges that face us feel way too big for us. Nothing could be further from the truth. You are powerful beyond measure – you need only remember this truth. Feeling hopeless, angry, or lost? Good. Because beneath these feelings lies the potential for action. It’s time to get to work. Climate change. Inequality. Conflict over contrived differences . . . nothing is beyond our own creative capacity to change...

Top 5 Reasons to Avoid Everything in Life



Out of a desire to synthesize some of the Top Five lists floating around out there—as abundant as they are helpful—I have compiled my own list of the top five reasons to avoid everything in life. 1. Don’t eat or drink anything! New studies show that almond flour gives us AIDS, soy contributes to ADD, and wheat will kill us stone-dead in a single bite. Beef is lousy, laden with hormones and, come to think of it, so is tap water. Beans will bloat us, and rice will make us fat. If we absolutely must eat, say the experts, eat...

Stop Acting Enlightened! This Yoga Teacher is Calling You the F*ck Out



In the bigness of their hearts, yogis are some of the most judgmental fuckers on this planet. “As a yoga instructor I truly don’t understand how promoting bone broth and paleo diets can possibly be seen as being in line with Ahimsa. And the truth is that it isn’t. Ahimsa is known as the most important Yama, and yet it is widely watered down or outright ignored by the Western yoga community. I encourage you to begin living and sharing the values you pretend to endorse.” This comment was recently left on YogiApproved.com. One of the most reliable – and...
