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.

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.

“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

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.

My Personal Goo Roo’s Story – Why I created Goo Roo’s Marketplace …….How to help people?

Real Yoga

I really believe I was supposed to share yoga and Goo Roo’s with you.  It has been a very personal journey so I will share the very personal story.  Today my “yoga-lifestyle” is a process of letting go of things that no longer serve me and incorporating things that do. Resisting unhealthy foods like soda pop, toxic people like old acquaintances who only add negativity to the mix, and bad ways of thinking about my world and myself.  I call it the Goo Roo’s Lifestyle – EAT WELL, BE WELL AND DO YOGA!

I started my adult life studying to be a Psychologist. The learning was great. I loved college, but, as time went on and the studies moved from physiology and theory to actual case study and medication, well, let me just say, “How Depressing!” Along with this theological struggle I was having a lot of medical issues myself. These disorders and diseases had plagued my 20s and 30s. Surgeries on my knees and “girl parts” helped, but, I still didn’t feel great.

I felt like a hypocondriac. I limited my activities around pain in my knees, hips, back, shoulder, and ankles for years. Female Problems were a huge factor in my not feeling well, as well as, Chronic Bursitis. Oh ya, I also, smoked cigarettes! I would ask my mom, “Why I have all these problems?” She usually attributed it to my being born two months early. Later, however, after reading a lot of personal growth books and magazine articles, I decided it had more to do with Fate and what life was teachinng me.  I was to share what I learned. (I hope I have learned enough about the difficulties that make you grow as a person, because, I am not sure I could take much more growing. LOL)

Life has hit me hard many times, and yet, it has given me many rich gifts. Some for too short a time. I had a beautiful baby girl named, Lindsey, when I was 21 years old. She died of SIDS when she was one month and two days old. This loss devastated my family. Her daddy took off and married a girl he just met very soon after we discovered I was pregnant. [This pregnancy was a big surprise to us, because, I had just had a surgery that supposedly made my chances of conceiving very low…] I was better off without that guy.

Within a week I changed majors and got a job as fast as I could. My money was zero and the rent was due. MORN LATER WORK NOW. I knew the crazy busy was just a coping mechanism, but, it helped keep me working toward my goal and got me out with society again. When I graduated from college with a BA in Business Administration, I set for Boise, Idaho to live out my dream of becoming a business consultant. Two months in I discovered my boss and owner of the company, that I moved hundreds of miles to work for, was a con artist. I never got paid. Depresses and depleted, I was determined to beat that city, so, after struggling for 9 months to get any job, even resorting to lying on applications so I wouldn’t be “over qualified,” I finally got a good job. I didn’t apply for this job, however. I made an appointment with the President of the company I wanted to work for. I told him what my career aspirations were and how I thought his company would fall into those aspirations as a stepping stone. He hired me on the spot! Geez, if, I knew it was that easy I would have done that at Hewlett Packard or Micron the first day I was in town!

In college and high school the academics were never a problem. Getting around on legs that were full of bursitis and debilitating female problems made life hard. Boyfriends who did not treat me like I had value and an unplanned pregnancy that ended in the death of my one month old daughter to SIDS, were really difficult things to deal with. It’s probably good that I took all those Psych classes, ha ha. When I was 23 I was feeling better about my life, having finally found a job I could grow in. Home life, not so much…. but, since 25 years have passed since then, I won’t go into the details. I will tell you that I moved back to my home town and got another job and met my life-mate, Dean. I have been on one great and sometimes stormy adventure since I met and married him. Our romance was a fast one we got engaged three weeks after we met and married four months later. Three years later, God gave us Dane and my life has been so filled with these men and all the people I have met since then. Dane is grown now and off to the same university himself. How blessed is that!

To live fuller, I made to decision to take control of my health. On my thirtieth birthday I finally took my grandma’s advice and started doing yoga. I really try to do it every day. My life has never been the same since I started using this amazing tool for wellness. In control, happy and Fit! Ten years later, I went to see my doctor. She helped me quit smoking CIGARETTES! I went to my other doctor and she gave me a hysterectomy (we didn’t know I needed I one so badly!) A year after that I started using Shaklee products to Shakleeize my home. I became a certified yoga instructor about 6 years ago to better share it’s many benefits. So, as I was making my way through this interesting life jetboating up raging rivers to our cabin on the Snake River or doing aileron rolls over wheat fields with my husband and father-in-law in a Split Tail Bonanza or recovering from the devastation of our home burning to the ground, I have learned a lot and met some really smart and generous people. Travel, shopping, meeting artisans, innovators, love of learning, groovy friends,  diverse interests and talents are all reflected in the things we offer. This website and business is an expression of that learning, especially, in the realm of the body, mind and spirit. You are invited to share in our journey as we continue to seek, to learn and to share REAL YOGA. Namaste.

BELOW IS A SHORT VIDEO TO INTRODUCE YOU TO OUR REAL YOGA SERIES.
