Feel Great with Bikram Yoga

Posted on Senin, 31 Oktober 2011 | 0 komentar
Hot Yoga or what is also known as Bikram Yoga is getting more and more popular. So what are the benefits of this form of Yoga?

Some of the many benefits of Bikram Yoga include, body strengthening, building endurance and emotional balance as well as improving your health. Some of these benefits can be contributed to the use of heat while performing the posture series.

With the help of a heated room, you are able to get into your postures better, and your muscles stretch more readily. In a heated room you will also find that you will lose weight more rapidly if this is your goal. Another advantage is that your metabolism speeds up and this helps to breakdown glucose and fatty acids.

The heat also helps to move oxygen to your body tissue and organs, which promotes healing as well as aids in removing harmful toxins. Another great benefit of Bikram Yoga is unlike many other forms of Yoga; it will raise your heart rate and promote cardiovascular health.
Beyond the obvious benefits of Yoga, this form has been known to actually help repair damaged tissue and ligaments as well as helping to cure those who are plagued with chronic ailments.

The health benefits alone may be a good reason to try Bikram Yoga, but this is by far not the only benefit to this form of Yoga. There are many others, including a means in which we can find balance in our lives.
Additional areas in which Bikram Yoga may be helpful include, relieving stress. This is important in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Stress can be a killer and the better we learn to manage our stress, the better our health can be.
The endurance required in Bikram Yoga helps you to learn how to focus your energies. This is undoubtedly a good trait to master. The better we can focus in our everyday lives, the more we can accomplish and the better we will feel about ourselves.
Though Bikram Yoga is not necessarily a highly spiritual form of Yoga, it can help in spiritual transformation. When we feel better about ourselves, it is easier to reach to a higher spiritual self.

Bikram Yoga is a wonderful form of Yoga, but it may not be for everyone. Essentially, the postures can be performed by most anyone of any age, though you may find it difficult at first unless you are in good shape and have a high tolerance for heat. It might be a good idea to begin with Hatha Yoga first and then move on to Bikram Yoga. Once you have mastered Hatha Yoga, you can be fairly certain you are ready for Bikram Yoga.
Once you reach the point that you feel you are ready to begin Bikram Yoga, you may be truly astounded by how good you begin to feel.

My Bout With Archery

Posted on Minggu, 30 Oktober 2011 | 0 komentar
I have this crazy job where I get to haul off and try new things every so often and then write a review about it for people to read. It's a job that I didn't know existed and therefore that I never planned to pursue. It sort of just fell into my lap one day and it has been the perfect job for me ever since. I love it. My days are filled with new things, sometimes safe and sometimes risky. Quite often I pick up great new hobbies that I'll have for a lifetime and other times I try something once that I'll never touch again. I recently had an interesting bout with archery.

I'll admit that I didn't know much about archery until I was assigned to a day at an archery field receiving lessons. I wasn't all that excited about my task simply because there was nothing that sounded appealing about shooting arrows at a target a distance away from me. I couldn't figure out why people would invest time, talent and money into such an activity, or a sport as many called it.

I arrived at the archery field full of skepticism and a desire to have the day finished. I was convinced that this would be one of the days that my job was my enemy and when I couldn't wait to get back home. I was wrong. From the moment I met the directors of the archery field to the moment I returned to my car four hours later, I enjoyed myself. I learned a lot about archery and I realized that it truly was a sport that I could enjoy and that was worth some time and energy.

Archery takes a lot more concentration and hard work than I first imagined it would. I ignorantly thought that I'd be able to walk onto the archery field and shoot my arrows directly into the center of the target. I wondered why anyone couldn't accomplish this task. I was rudely awakened to how hard archery really is. I quickly gained appreciation for all people who have taken the time to perfect their archery skills.

Since this first experience with archery I'll admit that I have been back to the course multiple times. I have gathered there with many groups of friends and enjoyed afternoons full of laughter and stubborn trying to get it right. If you are looking for a great new hobby and a way to work on your concentration and even strength, then archery is for you.

Choosing Your Bowling Gear

Posted on Sabtu, 29 Oktober 2011 | 0 komentar
Bowling is a fun sport and it should be. Although it's a sport which was initially not meant to be played by everyone, choosing the right kinds of gears makes it possible for almost all people to enjoy the game.

Choosing the right bowling gear can elevate one's game if he is serious about bowling. One can actually play the game without going through the hassle of buying and bringing his own gear, but it's so much better to play with your own gear. It's like playing a guitar, once you buy a guitar and you get used to it and the same is true of bowling.

Here are some of the essential bowling gears which one must have to step up his bowling game:


A serious bowler must have his own bowling ball/s. Bowling balls differ in weight, which is probably one of the most important things to consider when choosing a bowling ball. The general rule in bowling is that a person can use a ball which weights 10% of his total body weight. This means that a person who weights 140 pounds can use a ball which weights up to 14 pounds.

In choosing a bowling ball, one must also assess the comfort that it brings to the hand and the wrist, the right distance of the finger holes, and the general feel of the ball.


Some people may find bowling shoes funny-looking, however, they are very important in bowling. The right kind and size of bowling shoes allows the bowler to concentrate more the game and less on the little irritating details that come along with rented shoes from the alley.


Bowling bags should be bought if one desires the convenience they bring. Today's bowling bags can accommodate more than one bowling ball and the other accessories that might be needed.

Wrist supports

Not all bowlers use wrist supports but they do help in training the wrist to perform the correct release of the ball with the right position.

Buying essential bowling gear is important if a player wants to move up to another level. Gear refers to the tools which you use to be able to achieve a better style of play or simply to train yourself to play properly...

Chicago White Sox vs. Toronto Blue Jays

Rogers Centre

Mark Buehrle worked quickly and efficiently last Friday, looking a lot like Greg Maddux -- the pitcher he beat, in game the White Sox won 6-1 against the Cubs in the first Interleague game of the season.

The White Sox started trailing by 1 at the top of the first, but thanks to an efficient offense they managed to tie the game at the bottom of the first and from then on the game was all theirs.

Buehrle had a smooth two-hour ride through the Cubs struggling lineup throwing a two-hitter in the White Sox victory. "We don't throw hard. We use a lot of movement in our pitches. You go out there and beat one of the best pitchers in the game, it makes you feel a lot better about yourself," Buehrle said after the Interleague opener at U.S. Cellular Field.

The White Sox are playing a lot like they played last year when they were World Champions and if they continue with this pace they most certainly will get to the World Series this year also.

1. Scott Podsednik, LF. 2. Tadahito Iguchi, 2nd B. 3. Jim Thome, DH. 4. Paul Konerko, 1st B. 5. Jermaine Dye, RF. 6.A.J. Pierzynski, C. 7.Joe Crede, 3rd B. 8. Rob Mackowiak, CF. 9.Alex Cintron, SS.

Josh Towers (1-8) from the Blue Jays became the majors' first eight-game loser by following up his best outing of the season -- two runs and five hits in eight innings Sunday against Tampa Bay -- with one of his worst, giving up five runs and eight hits in five innings on Friday against Colorado.

The right-hander left a fastball up in the first inning that Atkins hit out to left for a solo homer and then gave up a two-run double in the fourth to Barmes.

"I think I was able to put the ball where I wanted to, but I did get a couple of sliders out over the plate," Towers said. "When I located pitches, they couldn't do anything with it."

Despite what Towers thinks this wasn’t one of his best games in the season. The Blue Jays performance sometimes depends a lot on how good their bullpen is on a certain day. And on Friday, the Bullpen left committed too many mistakes that cost them the game against the Rockies.

They face a very difficult series against the White Sox this week; most sportsbooks will have as favorite the White Sox in what many expect to be a series sweep by Chicago.

Terrell Owens : Dallas Cowboys Wide Receiver

Posted on Kamis, 27 Oktober 2011 | 0 komentar
A native of Alexander City, Alabama, Terrell Eldorado Owens was born on December 7, 1973 and is often referred to as ‘T.O.’ He is currently the wide receiver for the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys after being chosen in March 2006 to be a part of the team’s upcoming season.

During the majority of the 2005 season, Terrell Owens was an inactive player of the Philadelphia Eagles. The activity, or lack thereof, was due to a contract dispute and conflicts with fellow teammates, including quarterback Donovan McNabb. When Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones announced that Owens had signed a contract to play for his team, it seemed that all of the controversy from the previous year was over. While Owens is undisputably one of the most dominant receivers in the NFL, his reputation for speaking his mind without regard is a large part of the controversy that surrounds him.

After being released from the Philadelphia Eagles on March 14, 2006, Terrell Owens quickly found a home with the Dallas Cowboys. In a deal that is reportedly worth $25 million and spans over a period of three years, many continue to speculate as to how this new alliance will fare. The contract is also said to include a $5 million signing bonus and a first year salary of $5 million.

While his reputation is sometimes viewed in a negative way, his athletic abilities cannot be denied. Terrell Owens currently holds the NFL record for 20 receptions in a single game and has enjoyed many notable accomplishments, including 103 total touchdowns, six 1,000 yard seasons and reached 100 catches in 14 games during the 2002 season.

After being drafted for the first time in the 1996 NFL Draft by the San Francisco 49ers, Terrell Owens is now playing for his third professional football team. From the 49ers to the Eagles and now finding a new home with the Cowboys, Terrell Owens is poised to begin the 2006 NFL season with a new contract, new teammates and in a new zip code. As teammates, coaches and fans eagerly await to see how the Alabama native meshes with the players of Dallas, Terrell Owens will be preparing for a new season filled with plenty of competition.

Paying For And Getting A Refund For Your Airline Ticket

Posted on Rabu, 26 Oktober 2011 | 0 komentar
* If you plan to pay in person and with your own bank check, take at least two forms of identification with you like a driver's license, major credit card, or employee I.D. card. Particularly when you purchase tickets far from your home town, airlines, travel agencies and other ticket outlets will want to confirm your identity.

If you paid for your ticket with cash and you have a refundable fare, you can often get an immediate refund from the issuing airline or travel agency. If you paid by personal check, the refund will generally have to be mailed to you.

NOTE: In some cases tickets purchased overseas in foreign currency can only be refunded in that same currency and country, due to foreign government monetary restrictions. Keep this in mind if you are considering buying a ticket in a foreign country.

* When you pay by credit card, your charge account is billed-whether you use your tickets or not. You won't receive credit unless the original unused tickets are returned to the airline. You usually can't get cash refund for a credit card purchase.

* If you buy your tickets with a credit card and then change your flights, the ticket agent may want to credit the amount of the old tickets and issue another set with a second charge to your account. You may want to insist that the value of your old tickets be applied to the new ones, with the difference in price charged or credited to your account.

While this creates a little extra work for the airlines, it prevents double-billing to your charge account.

* There are different rules for different types of airfares. You can purchase discount fares or pay full fare. Check with your airline to find out the rules and cost of different types of fares.

Payment by credit card provides certain protections under federal credit laws. When a refund is due, the airline must forward a credit to your card company within seven business days after receiving a complete refund application. If you paid by credit card for a refundable fare and you have trouble getting a refund that you are due, report this in writing to your credit card company. If you write to them within 60 days from the time that they mailed your first monthly statement showing the charge for the airline ticket, the card company should credit your account even if the airline doesn't. This procedure is particularly useful if your airline ceases operations before your flight.
