Practice Passion and Compassion! World Yoga Day! Embodiment of Love: Music and Asana Performance, Lois Steinberg Receives the Lighting the Way Award! New Feature with Yoga for Mental Health Pioneer, Amy Weintraub.

Amy Weintraub, LifeForce Yoga Founder
As we enter the much beloved summer season, we are quickly reminded of the quality which dominates it. Summer is evidence of the Fire Element which gives us the capacity for great joy, passion and compassion, but can also ignite irritability and anger. We long to be in relationship but no one is immune to the heartache and frustration that can come from too much fire. 
Besides offering us cooling asana and pranayama practices, yoga offers us another way to cool down; through the simple practice of slowing down to be present for ourselves and others and through the practice of chanting and of offering compassion, friendliness and empathy towards our fellows.
To this end, we would like to offer some recent recordings which we hope will help to cool the fires this season. First, we recently caught up with Yoga for Mental Health expert, Amy Weintraub, who trains professionals in health care settings to use accessible practices of yoga and meditation to heal from mental health issues, like anxiety and depression. We also captured two impromptu recordings from the recent Iyengar Yoga Convention in Florida. The first video is an incredibly beautiful demonstration of asana and chanting. The second video honors iHanuman Yoga Teacher, Lois Steinberg, Ph.D. as she receives a prestigious award from the Iyengar Yoga Community. This recording also includes the chanting of Sutra I.33 with Iyengar Yoga Teachers and scholars, Leslie Freyberg and Jarvis Chen.
We hope these practices may bring you some peace and joy.  
With Much Love and Compassion,
Sara Miles Pope Agelasto
Co-Founder, iHanuman
