(May 21, 2007) — Researchers at Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM) and McLean Hospital have found that practicing yoga may elevate brain gamma-aminobutyric (GABA) levels, the brain’s primary inhibitory neurotransmitter. The findings, which appear in the May issue of the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, suggest that the practice of yoga be explored as a possible treatment for depression and anxiety, disorders associated with low GABA levels…. ”Our findings clearly demonstrate that in experienced yoga practitioners, brain GABA levels increase after a session of yoga,” said lead author Chris Streeter, MD, an assistant professor of psychiatry and neurology at BUSM and a research associate at McLean Hospital.
winter time is a wonderful time to work the inner leg line
winter time the time of rest and rejuventation
charging the batteries
charging the kidneys
the kidney meridian runs along the inner line
so charging the inner legs charges your life and gets you ready for the warmer times.

bekir algan, ph.d., demonstrates transition on third i yoga instructor jerry balderas.
the bridge between yesterday and today
has been crossed.
the journey continues
into new places and new surroundings,
yet with familiar faces.
the journey to who we are
is mapped out with experience and adventure,
and not so.
each showing us just a bit more
of who we are,
who we want to be,
who we don’t.
i thank you for joining me here,
in this space,
as i begin to exhibit pieces of the world
i have seen,
may your journey be filled
with sparks of inspiration
that lead you to follow your own inner light,
so that together we may
illumine the world.

grounding yourself in the midst of turmoil is a useful art
doesn’t have to be full on drama
just a bit too much mental chatter
that can be our undoing
so do ya know what to do?
ground your forehead or the top of your head
which like a loose wire sending electric sparks
endangers all around to electrification!
this is a fancy grounding
feel free to be fancy
feel free to be free
get it up
while the getting is good
spring winds and sunny days
breathe inspiration into us
if we move out of the way
get up wake up get the day dawning
sleep in during the spring
your best bet to staying behind
rising and shining
with first light’s rays
brings in the irie vibrations!
time to take the leap
tadpole to frog
make the metamophisis
“the caterpillar can not comprehend the butterfly”
step into the void
drop the story
the new you is waiting
joyfully includes gardening
for those of us who like to get a little dirty
we can garden like a dork
we can garden with intention
this is a sequence
based on a comment in this morning’s class
meant to inspire a new way of weeding
