Music

Sonic macro and micro news in 2012

In addition to being a vital aspect of entertainment, music and the news surrounding it often serve as a lens for considering important cultural phenomena. Rather than providing the overdone top ten album list, like I did last year, I focused on overarching themes in national, international and hyper-local music news in Macro and Micro Music Review. Since I neglected to mention Of God and Science in my local band R.I.P. list, check out their music video for “Turbulence” below.

Happy you year

This week’s feature, “You, Improved,” gathers some excellent pointers from various life-improvement experts. Some of my favorite:

Brad Braden, administrative director at Kadampa Meditation Center

• “Before going into a stressful meeting, take a couple of minutes to breathe and ground yourself. ‘If we can back away for a moment,’ he says, ‘it helps you to know what it feels like to be calm’ so that you can return to that feeling at times when you may be provoked.”

Katja Lauterstein, marketing coordinator and yoga instructor at High Desert Yoga

• “If you decide to attend meditation or yoga classes, it’s important to find a teacher you resonate with. So when you start going, shop around until you find someone who makes you feel absolutely comfortable.”

Dr. Heidi Murphy, communication studies instructor at Central New Mexico Community College

• On defensiveness: “She says it’s hard to ‘own up to something we know we can do better.’ Instead of talking about it, we ‘push it away’ and blame it on others.

Miriam Ortiz y Pino, certified professional organizer and simplicity expert, owner of More Than Organized

• “Move disorganized items into a clutter-free space. Sort them out there, then put them back. Oftentimes you’ll think more clearly in a clean area.”

On the hunt for cheap yoga in Albuquerque

Grassroots Yoga answers the age-old question: What’s up dog?

Grassroots Yoga answers the age-old question: What’s up dog?

Two of my (and likely your) 2012 resolutions are to get in better shape and be more frugal. I’m hoping to make a dent in both by taking advantage of new-student specials and cheap drop-in classes at local yoga studios. This is what I’ve found from cruising around online ... if you know of any others, do tell!

Bhava Yoga Studio: $35 / first two weeks. $6 ongoing drop-in classes.

Bikram Hot Yoga: $25 / first two weeks

Blissful Spirits Hot Yoga: $35 / first month

Body Balance Yoga: $5 ongoing drop-in classes

Body Language (yoga, Pilates and Barre classes): $45 / first month, but sign up is only through 1/31

Grassroots Yoga: $35 / first month. $5 ongoing drop-in classes

Hot Yoga Downtown: $29 / first month

Sani Yoga: $5 ongoing drop-in classes

Intelligent Life

Experts share their best advice for more money, good health and a bigger brain

It’s tough out there. Our bank accounts are never as flush as we'd like. Our waistlines won't stay put. And, let's be honest, don't we all wish we were just a little bit smarter?

Big butts and bigger problems: Healthy People 2020

So here we are in January 2010, conscious of the fact that our middle-aged little planet has managed to complete one more twirl around its rather ordinary star. For many, just reflecting on the nature of time can generate enough anxiety to fuel at least one or two New Year’s pledges.
