Here are the Editor's Picks articles for the Yoga Site! These are the top ten articles that your Yoga Editor feels are most important for you to read. Enjoy!

1. Yoga is Not Competitive
Feel less than the person next to you on the mat? Or overwhelmed with feelings of superiority? Here are some thoughts on how to move beyond a competitive mind.

2. Why use Sanskrit?
Do you use Sanskrit names to describe the poses in your practice? Some do and some don't. Consider both paths before choosing.

3. Kapalabhati Breath is Not for Beginners!
Yoga is NOT a quick fix. Taking practices out of context can be dangerous. Kapalabhati breath has been touted as a universal panacea, but it is not for new or casual practitioners.

4. Trikonasana, or Triangle Pose
As one of the basic poses, Trikonasana is an important posture to master. Here is a primer on the posture.

5. Vasisthasana, or Side Plank
Side Plank is one of the more challenging balances, but it is well worth the time it takes to master the asana.

6. The Perfect Yoga Body?
Isn't it time we dropped this phrase from our collective yoga vocabulary?

7. Sukha-Sthira-Asanam
These three Sanskrit words embody Patanjali's directive for how to practice Yoga poses: simply and with ease. What exactly does the phrase mean?

8. Yoga For Paddlers
Paddle sports such as kayaking and canoeing require a strong yet supple core. Here are some ideas for using yoga to improve one’s paddling.

9. Yin Yoga
Yin Yoga is a quiet yoga style intended as a complement to more active movements. As such, it's excellent for athletes seeking a balance and greater flexibility.

10. Gratitude Journals and Meditation
Interested in adding meditation to your yoga practice but finding it difficult to spare the time? Keeping a gratitude journal can help to bridge the gap.
