places you’ll go

You know that feeling the night before a big trip? Excitement and anticipation, maybe tinged with a little anxiety. You have an itinerary, but you can't plan everything that will happen along the way. That's what it felt like making this issue, and that's how I feel now, as we release it into the world.We set out on a journey to explore yoga travel and culture. It started with the predictable—picks for classic and up-and-coming yoga retreat centers, festivals, and towns. Then we realized we needed more; we needed to research which destinations are working toward environmental and social responsibility so that you can land somewhere with integrity (page 54). An India guide was a must, but one sourced by local experts who can speak to the country's spiritual and…

meet our new ambassadors home free

Brandon SprattAfter college I was successful, in a sense, working in pro-duction in Hollywood. But I wasn’t mature enough to handle the money. I was going through a breakup, had lost friends, and I was out of work.I ended up losing every-thing. I was so devastated and depressed that I couldn’t lift myself out of the mud. I lived in my car, then on the beach. I started asking: What is my purpose? How do I overcome this? But despite my despair, I still had faith that the universe cornered me into this period of self-reflection for a reason.Then one day a woman I’d met told me to find Seventh Chakra Yoga in Huntington Beach. I felt a powerful force as soon as I stepped into that space, and I…

trust your truth

The simple act of asking “What is my purpose?” on the Internet has the power to elicit nearly one billion responses.That’s a staggering commentary on the way so many people feel about who they are and how much they long for an existence that matters.On the surface, typing those four little words… what—is—my—purpose… and pressing enter may seem trivial, but it’s really a profound reflection of an intimate prayer rising from the deepest part of the heart. It’s asking to be acknowledged. Initiating that search is a sign that the journey toward an elevated life filled with meaning and character is ready to begin.And here is the great news. Beyond the labyrinth of digital links, there is really just one being who holds the keys to unlock the answers to…

the sound of silence

I’ve been meditating for a long time, but as I arrived in North Fork, California, just outside of Yosemite National Park, for my first 10-day vipassana retreat, I was terrified.What have I gotten myself into? I wondered as I drove down the dirt path to the California Vipassana Meditation Center. What if we get dragged into another world war and no one can reach me?My nerves were running high. I was about to spend a whopping 10 hours and 45 minutes a day in seated meditation in complete silence—no phone, computer, journal, books, exercise, yoga, or speaking.Not talking seemed like it was going to be easy. As a yoga and meditation teacher, I spend all day every day using my voice. Silence felt like a welcome reprieve. But no journaling,…
