Huffington Post - 5 months
By Christina Garofalo for ShermansTravel Every September, hotels ramp up their wellness offerings to honor National Yoga Month. While a discounted yoga package with your stay is nice, the beauty of yoga is that you can do it anytime, anywhere. As celebrity yoga instructor Rodney Yee once said: "The most important pieces of equipment you need for doing ‪yoga are your body and your mind," which accompany you wherever you go. Here's how to maintain your yoga practice for (mostly) free while traveling year-round, around the world. Stay at hotels that offer free yoga Kimpton offers free yoga classes at a number of its properties, including San Diego's Hotel Solamar.

Charleene Bentum: Charleene Bentum: What Real Success Looks Like
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Upon hearing the word 'success,' most of us conjure up visions of money, status, lavish holidays and upscale parties. And there's nothing wrong with that. I can't imagine anybody ever complaining about having too much money. However, with that comes the conclusion that we need to work long hours, have an impressive job title, wear the right clothes, drive the right car, have a perfect body and of course, also be adored and respected by everyone on the planet. It is the notion that we'll be successful when other people think that we are. So, we put in hours at the job which we think will earn the most money. Every time our pay increases, so does our standard of living. We're in a different league now, so our vacations need to be more exotic, our panties more expensive and our car even more impractical. In an effort to impress others, in the hopes of convincing ourselves that we're successful, we overwork and overextend ourselves. We are exhausted and constantly stressed try ...

Stewart J. Lawrence: Yoga Science and Yoga Hype: Is Tara Stiles Guilty of Medical Quackery?
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Tara Stiles, founder of Strala Yoga in Manhattan, needs no introduction. Her first "how-to" yoga guide, Slim, Calm Sexy, which proposed a breezy merger of yoga, fashion, and "grrrl power," earned her a flattering profile in the New York Times. Since then, she's emerged as one of yoga's most instantly recognizable celebrities -- "yogilebrities" to critics -- and perhaps its highest-paid corporate mascot. Stiles' second book, Yoga Cures (New York: Random House, 2012), for which her new-found collaborator, New Age guru Deepak Chopra wrote the Preface, was released last year with its first printing in paperback, presumably to rapidly expand distribution. Like her first book, it's filled with photographs of the 31-year-old Illinois native -- who sometimes depicts herself as a "small-town Midwestern girl" -- displaying her usual blend of physical grace and calisthenic prowess in every yoga pose imaginable. But this time Stiles isn't just selling readers on the cosmetic, fitn ...

    Age 26
    In 2008 Stiles met her husband Michael Taylor at the Ananda Ashram in Monroe, New York. "He was normal, he's straight, he does yoga...
    More Details Hide Details I'm done for," she joked. After a civil ceremony in New York, they honeymooned in Negril, Jamaica. The couple founded the New York City yoga studio Strala later that year. They made up the name, which is similar to the Swedish word "stråla" which means to "radiate light." In addition to continuing to make her videos and other media appearances, Stiles currently teaches a quarter of the classes and oversees 13 other instructors at the studio, which has become profitable enough for her to consider opening a branch. Deepak Chopra and Jane Fonda are among her students; the former considers her his personal instructor. "I have been doing yoga for 30 years," he says. "I have had teachers of all kinds. Taking lessons from her has been more useful to me than taking yoga from anyone else." Stiles does not follow any school of yoga or instructor and focuses purely on its physical aspects and health benefits, with no philosophical or spiritual dimension. She eschews the Sanskrit names for yoga positions and does not ask students to chant. She hires instructors without regard to the certification process normally required elsewhere, preferring to assess them by watching them teach, although Strala does offer a teacher-training program. Strala's per-class fee, $10, is lower than other Manhattan yoga studios.
