The show airing this Tuesday is: Yoga for Men – Dr. Baxter Bell
Since becoming popular in the west, Yoga has been embraced mostly by women, even though for thousand of years women were not allowed to teach yoga or be involved in the philosophical aspects of the discipline. In recent years, more men are coming back to practice, but is Yoga good for men? Is there a reason why they should not practice it? To answer these questions I invited Baxter Bell…
Baxter has been actively deepening his understanding of yoga and relaxation since making the stress-reducing move from a career as a busy family doctor to that of a yoga teacher and medical acupuncturist. He is now involved in the integration of therapeutic applications of yoga with Western medicine, lecturing to health care professionals. He studied with Rodney Yee, Patricia Walden, and Erich Schiffmann, and has been strongly influenced by the work of TKV Desikachar and Donald Moyer. Baxter is also on faculty for several Teacher Training programs and teaches workshops and retreats around the country and internationally, including specific yoga for men classes.
Most people know Yoga, yet what’s most popular is the Asanas, the aspect of Yoga that deals with the Body. Yoga comes from the Sanskrit word ‘Yuj’ and it means ‘union’, basically the union between Body-Mind-Spirit and utlimately everything that exists.
YogiViews is a TV show where Antonio Sausys interviews Yoga itself, through interviewing those who practice it, teach it, sell it or simply love it.
The interviewed range anywhere from great Masters deeply rooted in lineage and tradition to self made teachers; from savvy business men (and women!) who’d made a fortune selling yoga as a product, to those street-smart that know to rub the hands when cold in winter; from those who renamed yoga to make it acceptable, to those loyal to no other name than Yoga…
The format is either a half or a full hour show that at times presents a clip, or a real person, sometimes all in studio, others all outside, sometimes guiding practical experiences, others immersing in words…, but always true to Yoga.
The audience is everyone, those who practice can learn more and demystify old beliefs and those who don’t can learn why it works; those who love it can learn more about why they love it and those who don’t can learn to love it…, bottom line: Yoga represents the ‘Whole’, therefore ‘everyone’ is touched by it, including You!
Yoga has been around for 6000 years, despite trends, prohibitions and even modern standardization! Why is it…, how does it work…, who are those who pass it on…? Stay tuned and watch YogiViews to find out! The show airs at Comcast Channel 26 or AT&T Channel 99 (San Francisco Bay Area, California) on Tuesdays at 8:30 pm PST (repeat on Wednesdays at 11:30 am PST)
