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.

Posture of the week – Child’s Pose (Garbhasana) begin in kneeling position, feet together folding your torso over thighs resting your forehead on the floor in front of you or use a yoga block resting your arms  on the floor along side your body with palms facing up.  Another way to use Child’s Pose is to keep big toes together and spreading your knees to slide your torso between you knees and sliding forward to rest forehead on the floor in front of you. Hands together palms on the floor sliding away from you to stretch away from your head.

Wisdom – The Universe provides, protects and nurtures.

Featured Product Of The Week –  Meditation Kit

Yoga Meditation Kit – Zabuton Meditation Cushion
Round Cotton Zafu Meditation Cushion
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!
