TITANS OF YOGA
Also part of the September awareness campaign is the release of “Titans of Yoga,” a movie that brings together 25 prominent worldwide yoga and meditation teachers who share their greatest life challenges — from depression to illness to destructive sex, drugs and rock-and-roll lifestyles — and how they transformed them into their greatest life victories. “We want people to experience the benefits of yoga,” he said. “Health comes from the inside out. Yoga not only strengthens every part of the body and increases flexibility; it is also scientifically proven to reduce stress, which is a major cause of illness.” Whether you’re in the mood for a serious sweat session or a mellow meditation, a free month is likely to encourage even the most yoga-challenged individual to give it a try. In addition to free classes, other yoga studios are reaching out to the community with educational events, donation classes for a charity, contests and giveaways.
