Abdi's Story - Addiction Recovery and Yoga | URBAN YOGIS

Category:  Meditation And Yoga

Abdi's youth was colored by the struggles of being an immigrant and adjusting to the fast pace of New York City.

He gravitated to drugs and violence as a way of coping, convinced that he'd either land in prison or in his grave. But after the death of several friends, Abdi realized he needed to change his life. He discovered the healer's path, becoming an acupuncturist and even training as a shaman. Yoga played a big role in his transformation, as well, as he describes so poignantly in the video.

  • I am in serious need of Yoga today after trimming the bushes yesterday and getting ready to cut the grass today. i always strain the same side of my lower back every time I do strenuous work I need to keep one foot and leg extended behind at all times when bending forward to avoid this strained muscle.My hands curled up like claws after using the tools and I was barely able to lift my drinking glass . Thanks to Yoga and gentle stretching my hands and fingers are still able to type this message to you. Namaste Deepak-Goddess By The Waterfall

  • Deepak, I have a great question! Which is the way to send you one of my novels, to read it? Im sure you will be surprised. My novel's title is :'' Mykonos, the thoughts of a free tomcat''. How found the way Paulo Coehlo, you to read his book ''Aleph'' ? I know, Paulo Coehlo is Paulo Coehlo...but in the same time, I'm Marina D. Nicola. PLEASE GIVE ME THE CLUE. The Universe openes the roads and on this road you are a pioneer. Please, explain me ''the map''. I am a writer in the corner right now, show me the road please ! Thank you.

  • In his book"Peak Performance" Charles Garfield, Ph.D says.of the research at the Menninger Foundation, "They found that not only were yogis able to voluntarily alter their brain waves,heart rates,body temperatures, and other metabolic processes ordinarily considered to be regulated by the autonomic nervous system, but that the ability to volunarily control these processes could be taught to others with little difficulty in relatively short time."

    Gordon Anderson // 2012-11-09 01:50:21 // //
  • Fadwa, you don't need to be lean to start to yoga. Select asanas (postures) that you do more easily and makes you feel good, and also the ones that you think you can/need improve in time. Practice those 4-5 asanas regularly everyday before breakfast and/or before dinner. You will feel improvement within a few months, and then you can decide to pass to new asanas. As time passes you will be able to do more variety of asanas.
