On that evening, beautiful clouds were floating to offload their rain, the breeze was soothing and comfortable, trees and leaves were dancing in the wind, and from small to tall, buildings were spectators to a small but very important yoga therapy workshop, which started on August 10th, 2012 and lasted three days in Under the Light Yoga School in Shinjuku and Yoyogi, Tokyo.

A lively crowd gathered to refresh themselves and take away the fatigue of summer!

Jyoti Alkesh developed his interest in spirituality, astrology and palm reading during his childhood. Whilst working as an engineer, he started practicing astrology and palm reading over 10 years ago. Through his deep study, he came to know the essence and inter-connection between these paths and how to use their lessons practically in daily life.
Japanese people took a while to catch on to Facebook, but these days, pretty much all of Japan’s international yoga community is using it. And, as a result, many yoga teachers and studios have started using it to keep in touch with students and as a marketing channel. However, I constantly see both teachers and studios misusing Facebook, particularly confusing the purpose of profiles and pages, so thought to write this guide to help them.
Even if you can’t reach your kneecaps, yoga is for you. (In fact, it may be especially for you!) Those incredibly flexible people you see on television aren’t the same people you will meet in your neighborhood class, although they are good examples of what is possible if you practice yoga long enough and with diligence.
What could be more eco-friendly than growing your own food? You know your homegrown food didn’t require any pesticides or herbicides, and chances are, you didn’t use any fossil fuel like petrol in a large combine, tractor, or other farm equipment in your garden. You didn’t have to transport the food anywhere either; you just carried it to your kitchen. But what if you can’t plant a garden due to lack of space or city ordinances? Patio gardening is a great solution.
