Offering, Toj, Muluc. Direction = Red/ East.The day sign of Offering has also been called Incense by some sects of the Maya. It is the incense that is burned by the fire of the East to bring about an offering. This day sign relates to the ceremonial aspect of life.

They are very charismatic, sexual and have very fiery emotions. Their extreme sensitivity can be a cause of their emotional flair ups. They take ev...

Wisdom, Ajmak,Cib. Direction = Yellow/SouthThe primary function of this day sign, which is ruled by the southern direction, is to be a cleanser and purifier of itself and of the world.

Wisdom is concerned with material cleansing and therefore is concerned with cleansing the body physically and emotion...

Monkey, Batz, Chuen. Direction = Blue/WestAs the opposite of the day sign Dog, that is easy going and calm, the day sign of Monkey is very active, quick witted and lively.

They get bored doing the same thing all the time, so they need a great deal of variety in life to be in balance. They learn new things easily and will become frustrated with people in their lives that do not adapt to their constant flow of new ideas and act...

Yoga is not just about being able to put your foot behind your ear, although the physical aspect of flexibility is important-just recently I fell off the kitchen counter onto the tile floor, and my flexibility, strength and quick reaction probably saved me from a broken hip.

Being connected to our body and mind through the breath is one of the greatest gifts we can give to ourselves.

Yoga is a lifestyle; not just an...
