8 Great Posture Changes You’ll Get with Yoga

Do this stretch first thing!

When I began practicing yoga, I already had pretty good body awareness through my background in physical therapy and my love of running and exercising in general. But it was only through yoga that I was able to develop a deeper understanding of anatomy, body mechanics and greater awareness of the unhealthy habits in my own body when it came to how I stood, walked, sat, lifted things and moved in general.

In my work with people in yoga classes and private sessions, I am able to see how stress, the effects of sitting, hard work, raising kids and just overall sensory overwhelm has affected people’s bodies. There are several things I usually see: tight shoulders, lack of overall strength, tightness in the legs and an overall lack of coordination. In most cases, this isn’t because of a physical problem but more a result of spending too much time thinking and not enough time noticing the body.

The good news is that all of this can be shifted through a regular yoga practice. For those that insist yoga is not for them because “they can’t do one thing that long, can’t meditate, can’t concentrate, are not spiritual or can’t touch their toes,” I have news for you. Most people struggle with the same things but somehow gather up the requisite energy to get to a class. After one, they make another and pretty soon, as the body starts to feel better and more alive, they’re well on their way. If you’re looking for some practical benefits from yoga, here’s a good list of things I’ve personally seen shift in people after only a few sessions: read more

Security, Access Changes For EarthFest 2013

Thousands attended last year's EarthFest on the Esplanade in Boston.

There will be several changes to this year’s Radio 92.9 EarthFest at the Hatch Memorial Shell on the Charles River Esplanade this Saturday, including access and security.

According to an e-mail Monday from the Department of Conservation and Recreation, there will be no backpacks, coolers, open containers, blankets or large bags allowed into the festival this year.

All bags will be subject to a discretionary search and small bags as well as necessary items like strollers will be allowed in following searches, according to DCR.

In addition, DCR there will be no access to the Fielder Footbridge at the corner of Arlington and Beacon Street. Attendees will be able to access the event from the Charles Street Footbridge and the Dartmouth Street Footbridge.

Gates to the festival will open at 10 a.m.

“Massachusetts State Police has teamed with DCR to ensure a safe EarthFest,” said Massachusetts State Police Supt. Col. Timothy P. Alben in the e-mail.  “No specific threats have been made regarding this event, but safety is our highest priority, and we will continue to work with DCR to provide attendees with a fun and secure experience.” read more
