Three types of Breathing

Change Your Breath, Change Your Life | Lucas Rockwood | TEDxBarcelona
Change Your Breath, Change Your Life | Lucas Rockwood | TEDxBarcelona

We do it as long as we live but mostly aren’t aware
of it: breathing. In his talk Lucas breaks down the
fundamentals of yoga breathing in a way that you
can easily remember and apply to your practice.
Lucas shows us how three breathing practices
water, whiskey, or coffee – can be used as a tool and help us to overcome any situation.

With a formal yoga training background in Hot
Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga, Gravity Yoga, and the Yoga
Trapeze®, Lucas has studied with some of the
most well-respected teachers on the planet. His
most influential teachers (all of whom he studied
with personally) include Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, Paul
Dallaghan, Alex Medin, Gabriel Cousens MD, and
SN Goenka.

Lucas founded Absolute Yoga Academy in 2006,
one of the top 10 yoga teacher training schools in
the world with 2,000 certified teachers (and
counting) and courses in Thailand, Holland, the
United Kingdom, and the Philippines.

In 2013, Lucas founded YOGABODY Fitness, a
revolutionary new yoga studio business model
that pays teachers a living wage and demystifies
yoga by making the mind-body healing benefits of
the practice accessible to everyone.

In search of nutritional products designed
specifically for achy yoga students’ bodies, Lucas
worked with senior nutritional formulator Paul
Gaylon and founded YOGABODY Naturals in the
back of his yoga studio a year later. The company
has gone from strength to strength and is now a
world-renowned nutrition, education, and
publishing organization serving 81 countries.

A foodie at heart, Lucas was a vegan chef and
owned and operated health food restaurants prior
to diving deep into the yoga world. He is also a
highly acclaimed writer, radio show host, TV
personality, business consultant, weight loss
expert, and health coach. This talk was given at a
TEDx event using the TED conference format but
independently organized by a local community.

The Rules

Game of Life

The Game of Life was invented by John Conway (as you might have gathered). The game is played on a field of cells, each of which has eight neighbors (adjacent cells). A cell is either occupied (by an organism) or not. The rules for deriving a generation from the previous one are these:

Flower of Life

 

Flower of Life

 

The “Flower of Life” can be found in all major religions of the world. It contains the patterns of creation as they emerged from the “Great Void”. Everything is made from the Creator’s thought. After the creation of the Seed of Life the same vortex’s motion was continued, creating the next structure known as the Egg of Life.

"While we have the gift of life, it seems to me the only tragedy is to allow part of us to die—whether it is our spirit, our creativity, or our glorious uniqueness."

“Probably the happiest period in life most frequently is in middle age, when the eager passions of youth are cooled, and the infirmities of age not yet begun; as we see that the shadows, which are at morning and evening so large, almost entirely disappear at mid-day.”
