Risky girl tests corporate business ethics. June 10, 2012

Posted by SY.

Answer to one of my publishers and all of my readers:

Someone said:” Where is your smile in this writing, don’t you want to be less serious?”
By this writing I did not mean to entertain anyone, or claim a Pulitzer Prize in Journalism, or preach about how to write an extraordinary article or poetry; neither did I mean to increase any website’s traffic by putting F* or B* words in my article. All I wanted to say is that serious matters require serious consideration and some real strength in your judgment. But if my article is contrary to your rules and if you dislike my writing style, know that my writing style is always improving and growing.
Because writing is just like music – it will never stop, and it might take a life time for all of us to clearly hear our own voices without any fear or confusion.

Love,
SY.

Brief Description:
The article is about the “risky girl” and how her noxious  attitudes permeate the fitness facilities she works in. Fitness facilities are not often viewed as havens of employee negligence, because they lack traditional corporate structure, and are not generally overseen by human resource departments capable of enforcing work place policies. In the midst of this lax environment, characters such as the one I discuss in the article have created an unsafe atmosphere for children, mothers, veterans, and all other demographic groups that attend these facilities for self-improvement and exercise.
The author discusses a topic that most fitness employees are afraid to bring up themselves. They fear backlash in the workplace from the very co-workers who are creating these hostile work environments, and do not realize that some of the situations they are being placed in may be against the law.

PS. This article is about to be published in an international Magazine, in English and foreign languages for its readers in the USA, London, Germany, Russia and other countries. Please look for my updates.

It is not a secret that many people joined the yoga community to get rid of their physical, mental or emotional shortcomings and develop better stability and even better credibility within the yoga world. There is no harm in pursuing this path unless you want to prosper by destroying others.

A Few Tips on Daily Yoga Practice and Yoga Etiquette that will create calmness and free you from stress

1. Find time to practice yoga or any type of physical exercise daily. Do not forget to be creative, listen to music, or dance to the words of your favorite song.
2. Introduce yoga or fitness to your best friends, family and coworkers so that you can create a community of like-minded people.
3. Read good, quality books on alignment, anatomy, and proper food and diet choices for you and your significant people. (Feel free to read any books on yoga or scoliosis, but it will not bring your any mental clarity or improve your physical wellbeing and emotional stability until you will align your psyche to the universal principle of compassion and welcome some yoga “theory “ that is suitable for your personal needs). What books you choose to read is your individual choice; therefore do not rely on screaming “experts” and dominative yoga assistants with their questionable opinions.
4. Practice, Practice and Practice.
5. What should you do when you have sisters, brothers, nephews or cousins around your house while you are practicing your asana? Invite them to join your Sun Salutation and teach them some healthy poses rooted in proper body alignment and joy. (more…)

Every once in a while, a new music star comes along whose work resonates with the hearts and minds of a generation. Benny Goodman created his luminous jazz style in the midst of the Great Depression. Frank Sinatra’s tones were a favorite of America’s greatest generation and the prosperity of the post-war boom. Bob Dylan became synonymous with the rebellious ‘60s movement, while the sophisticated lyrics of the Beatles were associated with idealism during the cultural revolutions of this time period. What was the “message in the bottle” that was so captivating about these stars? Will the era of Michael Jackson be replaced with the era of Adele?
