Start your day with a 20 minute fire & flow video practice with me to open your heart & strengthen your core, ending with your guided morning meditation.
Whether you're not much of an exerciser or you exercise a lot (half marathon anyone?), these videos will make you stronger and give you 10x more energy throughout the day!
Prepare to up your game if you're already an athlete, or find out how sweet it is to have a strong, powerful body if you're not.
Then, balance strength and flow with sweet relaxation and stretching. Mmm.
End your day with a 20-30 minute Rest & Release video practice with me of deep stretching (yin yoga), and a total body relaxation.
Let go of stress and tension that accumulates in your body throughtout the day and week (as well as unresolved experiences and emotions from the past that we hold on to in our tissues & muscle fibers).
We can't be strong if we're not supple, so with these two practices you get the best of both worlds.
Find your inner power by firing up your core and let go of what holds you back from that deep strength and resilience with yin yoga (not only to lengthen your muscles and release your fascia, but also to let go of the past).
For many yoga teachers yin is considered the most advanced form of yoga, even though the poses are accessible to pretty much everyone. So this is where the true transformation takes place...
Practice mindful eating.Now that you’re moving your body, pay attention to your eating habits. Do you eat? Or do you skip breakfast or other meals? What we put in our bodies is as important as moving our bodies.One Bite (or Sip) at a TimeMindful eating involves paying full attention to the experience of eating and drinking, both inside and outside the body.We pay attention to the colors, smells, textures, flavors, temperatures, and even the sounds (crunch!) of our food.We pay attention to the experience of the body. Where in the body do we feel hunger? Where do we feel satisfaction? What does half-full feel like, or three quarters full?We also pay attention to the mind.While avoiding judgement or criticism, we watch when the mind gets distracted, pulling away from full attention to what we are eating or drinking.We watch the impulses that arise after we've taken a few sips or bites: to grab a book, to turn on the TV, to call someone on our cell phone, or to do web search on some interesting subject.We notice the impulse and return to just eating.We notice how eating affects our mood and how our emotions like anxiety influence our eating. Gradually we regain the sense of ease and freedom with eating that we had in childhood. It is our natural birthright.The old habits of eating and not paying attention are not easy to change. Don't try to make drastic changes. Lasting change takes time, and is built on many small changes.We start simply. One bite (or sip) at a timeIn this Moduel I'll guide you through simple mindful eating practices to bring more attention (with compassion and curiosity) to what, how, when, and why you eat.
“Eat in a way that is relaxing and brings you joy. It doesn’t take too much organizing and the results are profound.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
- Lao Tzu
Learn how to cultivate habits that give you the most energy, joy, power, and peace, so that when you're sad, feeling vulnerable, or you do or say something you really wish you hadn't, you can be with all of it with more grace, levity and compassion.
Ride the waves of life from your outer and inner core strength and power, listening to your inutition to guide you and practicing loving kindness for yourself and others. Learn how to let go (physically, mentally and emotionally) of the stories that trigger you.
These daily teachings support you on your sacred self care journey of being your most authentic self and living a life that is true to you so you can shine your light, let go of what no longer serves you, and spread your wings, sharing your love with the world.
(Or if you're feeling sad or vulnearble wrap those wings around you in an embrace of unconditional love.)
The middle of the day can be tough.
We get brain fog and fatigue, and our bodies get stiff, often with our shoulders slowly making their way to our ears.
If you're anything like me, taking a break in the middle of the day (or ideally mulitple mini breaks), is super challenging.
There's a real struggle to disengage from whatever you're doing just to breathe and to be.
But if you don't, by the end of the day you're tired and grumpy, short tempered, out of it, and your body feels like it was in a contortionist's box for hours, tied up in knots.
Midday pauses keep you focused and relaxed throughout the day, so you can end each day feeling calm and at peace.
It can be really helpful to check in with someone about your self care.
And with your fire & flow & rest & release video practices these check ins are even more useful since you'll be able to share with me how your body's feeling, (physically, mentally, and emotionally).
Also, we hold unresolved experiences and trauma from the past in our bodies, so stuff will come up for you. Both core work and yin yoga can bring you right up against your edge and really challenge you. That's why they're so powerful and transformative. But also why having someone to talk to about your experiences can really make a difference...
Let me know what's working and where you struggle, what feels easy and where there's resistance, what's coming up for you and where you feel a deep release.
Share where you're at and where you want to be (which might be exactly where you are!)
