According to the Centre d’etudes ethniques des universities montrealaises, 40.4% of Canadians pray or meditate on their own weekly. Yet many people still find meditation to be a challenging and elusive practice. Lisa Wimberger’s goal is to make meditative practices accessible and easy, while still being effective and impactful.

When it comes to yoga, my strategy is simple: “No pain…no pain!”
Yet this past April I voluntarily entered the zone of pain under hot lights at a West Oakland photography studio.
My goal was to take 260 photos that visually depict common alignment mistakes in 50 different yoga asanas for our Blissology Yoga Teacher Training manual.
I decided to touch the stove and found out it is hot. Really hot!
It’s not just theoretical—yoga can hurt.
A few years ago now many of us in the yoga community got our Mula Bandhas* in a knot over William J. Broad’s article “Yoga can wreck your Body” in The New York Times. To many, that was like an avid sports fan crying foul on his or her home team instead of cheering them on.

YogaCity NYC’s Jessica Mahler sat down to chat with her for a better understanding of shamanism and what kind of power can be found in our breath.
“Anyone can be considered a shaman, explained Star, a 60-year old woman with long blond locks and a kind face. “It’s a calling, really.” But it was a long, painful journey for Star to fully understand hers in this life.
Star always felt different growing up in western Kentucky in the ’60s. “I was one of those people who was gluten and lactose intolerant, and no one had ever heard of such a thing,” she says. On top of that, she had psychic, intuitive abilities—abilities that she shared with her grandmother, creating a special bond between them. Continue reading Presenter Profile | Linda Star Wolf
