“…many have the predictable (if not obbessive) capacity for high intensity sweat….how few, however, have the equal intensity or capacity to Sit Still?” Wholistic Fitness® by Steve Ilg, because Specialization is for Insects… When you meditate, breathe naturally, just as you always do. Focus your awareness lightly on
you know, feeble ilg actually spends a LOT of hours contemplating which people should play the Game of Leading where truly,
let’s be honest, no true Leaders lead…yes, politics. By Tradition, yoga teachers are apolitical, preferring to give our lives and sweat toward increasing and amplifying the Pranic Wholeness of people and then allow their enhanced Wisdom/Intuition to govern their choices…however, as my life is an open book, for better or worse, and for those of you that have Trusted in my humble, sweat and dharma based Path over the past 35 years? here is how i casted my ballot today…
These are my happy times, when the Aspens can no longer whisper their cheers to me… when, lower, the harvest begins to wane and the Bear Beings begin etching their long nocturnal nap beds…. when I force myself time and again to my lonely walk and work to the utmost upon this aging body of mine… There is warmth in the valleys

“Yeah?”… i replied feeling a sudden wave of my life changing…
“You better get our hospital bag…”

feeble ilg, bridging East/West fitness modalities since 1981, shown here recently in his h(om)e studio gettin’ his Vagal Tone on via Bharadvajrasana…”eventually the Outer World will catch upto – and at least acknowledge – the incredible pioneering force of Wholistic Fitness®…or maybe not..it’s all Go(o)d…”
We all know that yoga does a body (and a mind) good. But up until recently, no one could really say with any degree of certainty why—or even how—it improves conditions as varied as depression and anxiety, diabetes, chronic pain, and even epilepsy.
Now a group of researchers at Boston University School of Medicine believe they’ve discovered yoga’s secret.
“Chances are VERY likely,” i went on as we were in various stages of sacred sweat, “that if your mind is running rampant and far away from the Mantra in this class? Well, that same likelihood of rampant mind will occur outside this class, and that, my friends along the Path? Is precisely how we get hurt; rampant mind.”
