  • Light & Legacy with Heaton Graham

    An avid surfer, yoga teacher and dedicated father, Heaton Graham shares how his son has anchored him to the present, and what he hopes to pass on from his practice.

    When my son was born I had been going through a very difficult time. We had just moved to a new town with different working and living conditions, and of course, a new child -- a lot of transition. It felt as if a heavy fog were drifting in from the stress and lack of clarity to where I was going.

    As my son and I got to know each other though, his presence was like a lighthouse in the middle of that fog. I started to realize that for the rest of my life I would be his Papa. Regardless of any other circumstance, I would have his constant light to help guide me.

  • Come Back to Your Mat with Claire Fountain

    By: Claire Fountain @cbquality

    5---Claire-FB-linkOne of the first memories of yoga I have is in my childhood room, rolling out a red yoga mat on the carpet. Sure, it rippled and slipped and slid all around but it was a where I could practice, or try to. I got into yoga as a teen for depression and anxiety, and just having a mat made it feel more real to me. Continue reading

  • Yoga for Good Luck | 5 Practices

    In honor of Friday the 13th, let’s have a look at luck.

    Luck is a fun concept: the idea that once in a while, life gives you a windfall of fortune for no reason other than chance. Sometimes things do happen for no apparent reason – like finding a $20 bill on the street, or getting called for jury duty 3 years in a row. But most of the time, almost all of the time, what really makes luck is you. Continue reading

  • Bring Yoga To Kids Who Need It Most

    Every student should experience confidence, focus and feel balanced in the classroom, but not all students come from situations that give them that luxury. So we have to support the people who support our most at-risk kids. Bent On Learning is a nonprofit organization that has taught yoga to over 18,000 students over the past 15 years, bringing yoga and all of its benefits into underserved New York City public schools to support a healthier, more compassionate learning environment – and we made a mat to help make what they do possible.

    We’ve collaborated with visual artist Ryan McGinness to bring a one-of-a-kind printed PRO mat that will not only inspire your practice, but gives back to a young community that needs it most. Every time one of these special PRO mats are purchased, we will gift two yoga classes for children in Bent On Learning, helping inner city kids find inner peace.
