You Can Dance. Week 7 Of Wellness

Dancer Pose

You can dance and you should.  Dancing like yoga is a fun form of exercise and it creates those happy hormones!  Dance, smile and laugh, if, you can.  It’s good for your health!

POSTURE – Dancer Pose

WISDOM – Having an attitude of gratitude is a serious game changer for your body, mind and spirit.  Prosperity is drawn to gratitude.

MANTRA – Repeat silently or quietly to yourself,  “Compare no more.”

MUDRA – (Ahamkara Mudra) – practice for 10 minutes for self-confidence – Bend the index finger slightly placing the thumb on the outside about half-way keeping the other fingers outstretched.

AFFIRMATION – Smile and say “I am Pretty (handsome) and I am likable.”

FEATURED PRODUCT – Because it’s so pretty, and so so helpful.  Click the picture to get yours today.

PRANAYAMA – This technique was developed by Dr. Weil – Begin by pressing your tongue on the gums just behind your front teeth. so that when you exhale a wooshing sound occurs.  Inhale through your nose for 4 seconds, hold for 7 seconds, and exhale for 8 seconds making the wooshing sound. Repeat 3 times.

NUTRITIONAL ADVISE – Yes, salads when you eat them instead of other less nutritious foods will help you lose weight.  Water content and nutrient dense veggies make this a winner for the weight conscious.  Another good thing about salads is that there is an endless variety of ingredient combinations so you won’t get bored.

ESSENTIAL OIL BLEND  – We love a mask of Coconut oil and or Apricot Kernel Oil with 2 drops Frankincense, 5 drops Lavender, 2 drops Patchouli oil and 1 drop of Geranium oil.  Renewal for skin plus your vital energy will increase exponentially.

Mountain Pose Arms Overhead
Mountain Pose Arms Overhead

“Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff and it’s all small stuff… “

the wise title of the wise book full of wisdom by Richard Carlson Ph.D.  Yes, it’s been out for a while but, it still rings true.  Read it again and again to get a new insight or message each time.  Don’t sweat it and remember the key to good communication is listening.

Mountain Pose – (grounding and centering)  Stand with feet solidly on the floor feeling the connection on the four corners of your feet, balancing your weight at the center of the base your feet form.  Drift your weight upward stacking your knees above your ankles, hips aligned above the knees with the shoulders in line with hips.  Gaze forward with sitting bones tucked slightly under, rotate the inner thighs back releasing the lower back. Roll shoulder blades back and down. From the center of your being and up through the top of your head radiate up as if a string were pulling you toward the Universe while staying grounded through your feet.

 

Mantra – repeat this Tibetan Grounding Mantra silently or aloud

                    OM MANI PADME MUM

Mudra – Prithvi Mudra is good for feeling safe

 Place tip of ring finger to the tip of the thumb.

–                            Prithvi Mudra

Hands together palms on the floor sliding away from you to stretch away from your head.

Our Meditation Kit includes everything you need to meditate in comfort. For even better meditation experience add an eye cushion, box of incense, and sign into your membership page for some sounds and meditation suggestions.

Pranayama (Yoga Breathing) – Easy Breathing Exercise begins in a comfortable seated position.  Breath easily and comfortably for a few breaths… then, inhale through your nose counting 1 – 2- 3- 4- 5 … to your maximum breath capacity extending the belly with your breath. Pause.  Exhale through your nose counting until your lungs are empty. Pause. Continue inhaling fully and exhaling fully until a full breath breathing rhythm is established.

Nutritional Advice:  You can get your greens!  Just throw a bunch of spinach into your morning smoothie.  My Shaklee shakes often carry an extra punch with my favorite fruit like pineapple, or berries and as much spinach as I can get into the blender, then, I add the coconut milk (my preference) to the mix and get a very nutritious start to my day.

Essential Oil Blend for your Wellness this week is Eucalyptus and Mint.  This blend is good for your breathing, muscles, skin and hair.   It is refreshing and gives a sense of well-being.

Have a great week yogis!

You Can Take Control Of Your Health and Your Life- Week Two Of Wellness Series

Cobra Pose

Week 2  –   A moment of reflection on the Last Year should be taken before we get started with our New Year Resolutions.  According to Mel Robbins, author of The Five Second Rule you can’t start new goals properly, unless, you access where  you are now.  So let’s take a moment to reflect on 2017 with an attitude of gratitude look at where we were and how far we have come in recognition of our unbound essential nature. We can then plan for this years goals and aspirations.

POSTURE –  Bhujangasan or Cobra Pose as taught by Swami Vishnu-devananda.  Lie on stomach completely relax.  Place hands on the floor below your shoulders.  Leading with the top your head, look up and raise your upper body up and back toward your feet like a cobra raising its’ hood.   Cobra

Slowly roll back one vertebrae at a time pressing legs and pelvis into the floor.  Inhale while bending, hold, exhale coming back to start position.   Cobra pose

Cobra Pose

strengthens tones, massages your organs and increases awareness.

 

WISDOM  –From page 48 of the book 1001 Pearls of Yoga Wisdom, by Liz Lark  “Expand your Mind – It’s in you that pervades this Universe, and this Universe exists in you, Your true nature is pure Consciousness.  Don’t be small-minded.”  Ashtavakra Gita (800 – 400 BCE, India

To me this means that as we are one with the Universe and all existence we are in the relmn of unlimited possibilities.  Yoga helps us make that connection: that’s why Yoga Rocks!

SO HUM MANTRA  –  Inhale think So Exhale think Hum  means “I am that.” Continue for up to 20 minutes as a breathing meditation.  This helps build your connection to cosmic Consciousness.

ABBAYA  MUDRA  – is introduced by Christy Turlington in her

PRANAYAMA  –   Alternate Nostril Breathing Method to increase mental focus and inner awareness.  Begin by taking a few gentle flowing breaths.  Block the right nostril with your left thumb, resting your middle finger knuckle above the bridge of your nose exhale through your left nostril, inhale through your left nostril at the peak of the inhalation block the left nostril with your third and fourth fingers and exhale through the right nostril.  Inhale through the right nostril keeping the left nostril blocked and the peak of your breath block the right nostril with your thumb and exhale through the left nostril.  This is the end of one round of the Alternate Nostril Breathing Technique.  You may continue for several rounds.  I like to do it until my sinuses are free and by breathing flows easily.

NUTRITION  –  Eat whole foods and restrict consumption of processed foods, sugar and high sodium foods.  Whole foods are healthy.

ESSENTIAL OIL BLEND –  We love the Sandalwood Bath and Body Oil it is so good for skin and hair.  The Earthy sent is great for the session we described today.
