For yoga teachers and serious students, “Best Yoga on the Web” is your hand-picked guide to this week’s best of the best yoga from around the world…
Russell Brand’s Story – Transformation Through Yoga, via Urban Yogis
Ok, Maybe a lot of you have seen this one already, but it really is about finding the right tools – as Russell says, “if it was all about McDonald’s and Starbucks and blowjobs we’d all be all right… be good at football, be good at fighting, people won’t tell you that stuff is not gonna work”. He reminds me of a many real people with real problems whom I’ve seen helped by yoga, and at least one who found the wrong tools and unfortunately didn’t make it. Russell understands that he needs help, and recognizes that yoga is a great tool for helping him. I wish others in a similar place could find yoga as an alternative to cravings and addictions. Raw honesty.
If you want to make a huge leap to the next level in your meditation practice, or if you simply want a better understanding of the purpose of meditation, there is nothing better than the audio version of Adyashanti’s True Mediation.
I’ve listened to it too many times to count, and when I recently came across it on amazon, I was amazed by two things – the low cost, and only a couple of reviews for what I have to say again, is probably the best tool for meditation on the web. You can have it for about the price of a fancy coffee, so why wouldn’t you get it? Adyashanti’s True Mediation
In this world of Kickstarter and crowdfunding, it seemed strange to me that the non-profit Niroga Institute’s Challenge 1000 has only 263 views on youtube, while the Russell Brand video above has around 70,000 views. It’s easy to get lost in the media storm, but Challenge 1000 seems a worthwhile cause and Bidyut Bose, Niroga’s founder is doing his best to contribute to social transformation. Give it a look!
I first met Jeff Beaudoin, the founder of Omaha Power Yoga, a few years back at this very spot on the beach in Mexico. Jeff is a bit of a rebel, and who doesn’t like a yoga rebel? I think of him as a guy’s guy, which is why it would be a great way to start off the new year with him at the amazing Maya Tulum, ranked the #2 destination spa in the world by Travel and Leisure. Come to think of it, since Jeff is a guy’s guy, the ladies might like this one too! One thing is for sure, it will be a memorable experience. For those of us who won’t be going to Omaha any time soon, this is your chance to experience Jeff!
