  • Hi everyone! Just found this group and had to join! I am a passionate Yogi, living and studying in Hungary. Anyone else here from around the Budapest or Kecskemet area?

  • Hi there! I'm a yogi and lover of meditation! I saw this group and wanted to join to stay inspired a connected to all the beautiful vegan/raw/healthy spirits out there that listen to and love their body!

  • RIP BKS. Thanks for notifying me Naprapa. A great man whose life's work I am deeply grateful for - may he rest and live on in mind.

  •  R.I.P. BKS Iyengar

    Namaste _/\_

  • Just started reading Guru Iyengar's Light on yoga, its amazing I decided to read it while walking around the park earlier. It is amazing to me how the universe works, it mentions the Bhagavad Gita several times which coincidently was given to me earlier this year by a vedic monk. Pretty Amazing =)

  • Dear Yogis, I am currently in Mysore, India (practicing with Sheshadri) and I wonder if anyone of you is here also? :)

  • Hey Raw Yogis,  I've just set up a new youtube channel and web site    rawandcookedvegan.com   and I want to interview as many vegans as I can.  I want to go into your bio and your transition and what you're doing now.  Contact me via 30Bad or via     rawandcookedvegan@gmail.com     it doesn't matter how long you've been raw or vegan, I just want to get the info up there and your experience will help others.  We'll do skype videos.  Let me know and thank you all for this revolution,   Paul

  • Beautiful stuff.  That's great she learned on her own, just listen to your body.  What you want to explore is muscular activation while you are stretching.  It is often thought that yoga is passive stretching but over time this approach can screw up ligaments.  Learn to have the muscles gently activated while you are stretching them. 

  • Paul, thank you, I will try Rodney Yee, thank you for your recommendation! On of my friend went to India and he took a video of one girl in the beach. She was practicing a yoga, and didnt mind somebody make a movie. He uploaded this video to youtube and many people found her. She is russian girl. I contacted her and found that she learn yoga at home, she practiced alone at home with different kind of videos. This is very inspired me, I thought its not possible without a teacher to do yoga ;) This is a video of her in the beach: http://youtu.be/YOkt9tQVvWQ

  • Tonya,  Try Rodney Yee.  He has some AM and PM yoga dvds that are very accessible.  He comes from an Iyengar background but works the poses into a nice flow.  He used to be a Ballet dancer and I think that influences his approach.  He's gone a bit crazy on the marketing but he does put out some good stuff.  Another excellent book which doesn't go into poses so much but gives a brilliant view of how to approach yoga is,  Awakening the Spine by Vanda Scaravelli.  Have fun in Japan and don't worry about doing your own practice.  Just get on the mat and start exploring.

Anyone experience an increase in flexibility after transitioning to LFRV?

Hey Raw Yogis,About a year ago I did yoga religiously, tons, and after 3 months I saw a massive improvement in flexibility and tone. I went through some tough financial and emotional times and fell off the wagon completely. I'm wanting to get back into it - but I've always wondered about the effects of diet on flexibility.As for myself, I won't be a very good 'control' candidate - although I will note if I see gains in flexibility at a quicker rate.Was anyone a yoga practitioner before…
