Yoga: The Art of Transformation
“Art Walk is no longer the art walk that it was. We didn’t have food trucks and booze everywhere. We had art! Art! Now it’s just a bunch of drunk people and really bad food.” As she teaches, she is careful to credit yoga luminaries who once taught her in Bali, India and across the United States. In classes, everyone gets hugged, held up, readjusted, massaged. “I know this is intimate, but so is life.

Dr. Raza Awan, a sports injury specialist in Toronto who uses yoga for rehabilitation, started tracking yoga injuries after noticing there wasn’t much published data. If someone is too flexible and gets into theend range of a pose without good support and muscle stability, it can cause wear and tear on joints, Awan said. While injuries to the lower back, knees and wrists are more common, hip injuries can be more significant and need surgery, he toldCBC’s Kim Brunhuber. “There’s a rim of cartilage inside the socket portion that can become torn,” he demonstrated with a model of a hip, the body’s largest ball-and-socket joint. “That can lead to surgery because the cartilage doesn’t heal well typically.

Exploring yoga styles: What is Vinyasa?
Stunning examples of sculpture and painting illuminate yoga’s key concepts as well as its obscured histories. Early photographs, books and films show yogis not only as peaceful practitioners, but also as warriors, showing yoga’s transformation in 20th-century India as an inclusive practice open to all. The show’s highlights include an installation that reunites three stone yoga goddesses from a 10th-century South Indian temple; 10 pages from the first illustrated book of yogic postures (asanas); and a Thomas Edison film, Hindoo Fakir (1902), widely regarded as the first movie ever produced about India. “We are proud to be the only West Coast venue for this groundbreaking exhibition on yoga’s history,” said museum director Jay Xu. “Yoga’s history has transformed across places, cultures and religions, and today we step inside its ongoing transformation.” The Asian Art Museum’s presentation of Yoga: The Art of Transformation will be on view Feb.

15 Awesome Yoga Brands Besides Lululemon
As the athletic (and spiritual, if that’s your thing) practice of yoga has become more popular, the types have expanded. There’s Vinyasa, Yin, Bikram, Hatha, Kripalu, Partner, Kundalini and many others that you might see on the schedule for your local yoga center. I’ve tried all of them (almost!) and am here to break it down. One caveat: I’m an eight-years-in yoga practitioner (I started in California, and have practiced regularly in Connecticut, NYC and Hawaii), but I’m NOT a yoga teacher, and haven’t been to teacher training, though my boyfriend, Simon Apter (who writes about yoga here ) and my roommate both have and I ask them tons of questions all the time. So if you notice a mistake or would like to add info to what I have written here, please do so in the comments. I welcome corrections and discussion. I’m starting with Vinyasa because it’s one of my favorite styles of yoga, and because it’s a term that’s often used to describe other types of yoga.

Yoga can lead to hip injuries
The overlay is also weird in that is removes the standard app drawer and just throws all your apps across your home screen as you download them. Gee this doesn’t look like iOS at all. You can still organize apps into folders and use widgets, but it really seems like Lenovo was doing its best to copy iOS 6. All the stock app icons are square with rounded corners, the folders look similar to the ones in iOS 6, and freshly downloaded apps carry a red badge that says NEW and appears suspiciously similar to the ones in Apples mobile OS. If Samsung got sued for copying the look of Apples devices, how long before the Cupertino company takes Lenovo to court for copying the aesthetics of its software?
