Going on a yoga retreat is a beautiful opportunity to delve deeper into your yoga practice, take some much needed time to connect to yourself, and add healing treatments like massage or meditation…depending on where you choose to retreat. If you are able to attend a retreat, I highly recommend it; however, if you aren’t able to attend a retreat, why not create your own in three easy steps?
Though all types of yoga offer similar physical and psychological benefits, certain types also have their own unique twist. With Bikram (or hot) yoga, you’re experiencing the added benefit of detoxification. With power yoga, you’re getting a focus on burning calories. So what about the latest craze in the industry—laughter yoga?
As a long-time yoga practitioner, I remember speaking with my teachers and fellow students 15 years ago about the discomforting fact that images in the publications were almost always those of young, white, athletic women or prominent male “gurus.” Some of us wrote letters to the editor protesting this fact, but nothing really changed.
Here at Gaiam we know the importance of yoga for kiddos. Our bright, playful teeny yogi collection inspires even the littlest ones to come to the mat.
Since I have yet to have a human child, I have started getting my fur baby involved in my practice. So here are a few tricks for yoga for you and your dog.

Does your child need to unwind his mind?
Aerial yoga is not only safe, but offers unique benefits for child yogis, says Ashley Goldberg, owner of Born Yoga in Birmingham, Michigan.
“Unlike aerial yoga for adults, upside down and challenging poses are done with children in a bucket seat, which prevents them from sliding out,” says Goldberg.
