    3 Ways Yoga Can Improve Your Relationships

    We all long for honest, joyful, and fulfilling relationships. Yet, many of us find that intimate relationships can be challenging and, at times, even painful. After all, they act as mirrors that reveal our brightest lights as well as our darkest shadows. These dark shadows are the result of deeply rooted, untended wounds that are difficult to face. Many relationships end due to the inability of one or both partners to be present with those wounds.

    Healing, transformation, and self-growth lie within embracing the entirety of our authentic selves — both the light and the dark sides. This strengthens and teaches us how to open our hearts to healthy, self-aware partners who we can co-create bonds of trust and unconditional love with. One of the best ways to achieve this type of healthy relationship is through yoga. Here are three ways yoga can help you cultivate authentic, sustainable partnerships.

    The Yogi Review: Therapy Balls Compared

    by Outside Expert, Sara Quiriconi

    @livefreewarrior here, reviewing a variety of therapy balls to incorporate into your practice. They’ve become one of my favorite little tools to heal my own body whenever I have extra aches and pains from practicing, poor posture, or just daily living taking its toll on my 5’7” frame. 

    Balls are balls, right? Why do we need special balls to use on our body? Can’t I just grab a tennis ball and start rolling? Well, you can, but you’ll gain the greatest benefit by using the ball that’s the proper size and “squishy-ness” to massage out your muscles. Think of a mattress: sure, you can sleep on anything if you had to, but having the right firmness and support will give you a better night’s sleep. 

    Same goes for therapy balls! Get the right one for the specific need you’re looking for, and you’ll gain the greatest benefit. Use them to massage out your body, release tension wrapped up in your muscles, and alleviate pain in the joints. BONUS: I use these for when I travel, too! See below in the write up as I explain more on that. 

    So, with all this talk about balls, let’s hop to the review! And, be sure to check out the video so you can see all of these in action as I talk and roll you through them.

    How Your Moon Sign Can Help You Be Your Most Badass, Balanced Self

    Your moon sign is one of the most important elements of your astrological chart, as it helps shape your emotions and characterizes the deepest depths of your soul. It largely determines how you navigate your subconscious, below-the-surface world.

    Your moon sign is based on the location of the moon at the time of your birth. Because the moon moves into a new sign every two to three days, we are all quite unique in relation to those who share the same sun sign (the most well-known type of astrological sign) as us. This explains, for example, why some Aquarians are introverts while others are extroverts.

    To fully understand your emotions and needs and where they come from, being familiar with your moon sign is key. Here are the twelve moon signs and their characteristics so that you can master your feelings and be the most balanced version of yourself!

    Yoga Teacher Q+A with Vinnie Marino

    In September, YogaOutlet.com held its first-ever YogaOutlet.com Retreat called Malibu Gathering, bringing together yogis, media, products, teachers, and experts for one and a half days of yoga (and great weather) in Southern California.

    One of our teachers was Vinnie Marino, one of LA’s most popular yoga instructors and a senior teacher at YogaWorks. He treated us to a classic Vinnie Marino yoga class experience - sweating to the tune of a rockin’ 70’s and 80’s playlist. His classes are brutal in the best way possible and the perfect combination of east-meets-west philosophy. Vinnie loves connecting with students, and watching them grow and thrive. We had the honor of learning a little bit more about him in this exclusive YogaOutlet Q+A.
