Did you know that Tantra Yoga can answer the age old questions of humanity? I didn't either until took my first 100 hour Immersion of the yoga tradition.

Awaken The Healer Within... A Summary of The Chakras

The first chakra

Blockages in our energetic fields have long been understood by ancient yogis to create stress and dis-ease in the human physical, mental and emotional experience. Learning how to open and purify these channels is the gift of engaging what is known as the Chakra System.

Sharing Your Yoga Practice

You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink. This wise old adage is as applicable to the practice of yoga as any other endeavor. All of us Yoga Junkies want to see those that we love enjoy the benefits of yoga.

Yoga students in Tiffany Wood's class

Is 60 really the new 40? I can’t answer this question from Cosmopolitan’s view, but when I take a look around all of my yoga classes, I can definitely say, Yes! 60 is the new 40! When you glance any yoga hottie from behind, you often have no idea if you’re looking at a 20 year old bootie or a 60 year old physique!

The Beauty of Yoga and The Yoga Butt

In 16 years of teaching yoga I have seen pretty much all the initial reasons people decide to try a yoga class. Everything from reducing pain and healing injury, soothing the soul going through a divorce, calming work related stress, creating flexibility or obtaining “the yoga butt."
