What Makes A "Good" Yoga Practice?

I hear it all the time. So and so has a "good" practice. So and so has a "strong" practice.  What does that really mean? What is a "good" practice? What does a good practice mean to you? Sharath has said many times that every time you get to practice it's a good practice. In this video excerpt from the Ashtanga Yoga Vancouver Documentary Fiona  talks about what a good practice means to her. I've practiced at AYV for 5 years and I know first hand that what Fiona values in a student is exactly what she says in this interview. - Clint "This is about showing up every day and just being aware. It's not an accumulation. It's a moment and it's...

Ekaminhale interviews David Robson on Teaching, Successful Mysore Programs and the Power of Mysore

Here is the 3rd and final interview we did with David Robson from Ashtanga Yoga Toronto when he was in Vancouver at Chopra Yoga to teach a weekend workshop.

What is Ekaminhale Anyway? Interview with Clint Griffths the Founder on What Ekaminhale is all About.

Ekaminhale came about almost accidentally, I would say. I wasn't happy with some of the yoga clothes out there for guys. None of it really resonated with me. I was like, "This isn't what I would like," so, I was like I'm just going to make my own tank top. I literally just went to the store, bought a tank top, and then went down to the screen printers and then found the Sri Yantra and I got this put on. I made the shirt and then I just started wearing it around town. That weekend, I had probably 15 people ask me if they could buy one.  When I first started making the shirts, I was making them all...

How Ashtanga Yoga Keeps You Young

One thing you notice when you meet people that have an Ashtanga practice is how young they look when you find out their chronological age. When I first met Derick at Ashtanga Yoga Vancouver I was amazed when he told me how old he was. The thing is that it's kind of normal in the Ashtanga community which leads me to ask the question - "Does yoga keep you young or does today's way of living make you old?" As with everything it's not black and white but multiple shades of grey.  My goal in life is to be as healthy and clear as I can in order to be a place to inspire, serve and benefit others. Ashtanga yoga is one piece...
