The Yoga Journal Re-Design is on Newstands NOW!!!

For more than 30 years, Yoga Journal has been giving its readers all the info they need on the expansion and revolution of the yoga movement. Yoga Journal is the perfect magazine for yoga teachers, yoga newbies, those interested in perfecting & expanding their yoga techniques, and those who are interested in learning more about yoga. The ever-growing yoga community loves Yoga Journal. It provides tons of awesome articles, pose technique tips, food & nutrition info, and more. Like the community has evolved over the years, so has Yoga Journal. They are now are proud to present as well–an interactive, in-depth, yoga community website.
The Yoga Journal re-design has officially launched and the new body issue is on newsstands now! The bright #yogajournal relaunch makes us want even more asana and off the mat inspiration. I am a fitness junkie so of course I work yoga into my fitness regime; however, I am very far off from being a yogi. So even not being super knowledgeable about yoga- the Yoga Journal really was a great fitness read. I could relate to all of the articles and really learned a lot. Very fitness oriented and it definitely made me want to incorporate even more yoga into my routine. It provides lots of tips, healthy living advise, pose techniques, and so much more. And the website provides you tons of info - check it out!
Want to learn pose basics or want to learn about advanced yoga poses? Check out Here is an example:  

chaht-tour-ANG-ah don-DAHS-anna)
= four limbs (chatur = four
anga = limb)
danda = staff (refers to the spine, the central “staff” or support of the body)
Step by Step

Perform Adho Mukha Svanasana, then Plank Pose. Firm your shoulder blades against your back ribs and press your tailbone toward your pubis.

With an exhalation slowly lower your torso and legs to a few inches above and parallel to the floor. There’s a tendency in this pose for the lower back to sway toward the floor and the tailbone to poke up toward the ceiling. Throughout your stay in this position, keep the tailbone firmly in place and the legs very active and turned slightly inward. Draw the pubis toward the navel

Keep the space between the shoulder blades broad. Don’t let the elbows splay out to the sides; hold them in by the sides of the torso and push them back toward the heels. Press the bases of the index fingers firmly to the floor. Lift the top of the sternum and your head to look forward.

Chaturanga Dandasana is one of the positions in the Sun Salutation sequence. You can also practice this pose individually for anywhere from 10 to 30 seconds. Release with an exhalation. Either lay yourself lightly down onto the floor or push strongly back to Adho Mukha Svanasana, lifting through the top thighs and the tailbone.

For more than 35 years, Yoga Journal has shaped the yoga revolution in America, that's right it has been around since 1975! It was created by members of the California Yoga Teachers Association to unite the growing yoga community and provide accurate yoga info from those in the know!

As you all know yoga is now very popular in the America culture. According to Yoga Journal’s most recent Yoga in America survey, 20.4 million people in the United States now practice  yoga! And while more people are practicing yoga than ever before, the real reason for Yoga Journal’s continued success is that it remains true to its original mission: to provide yoga enthusiasts with the best, most well-researched and inspirational information about a 5,000 year old tradition that is just as relevant today.
