My 10 Day Meditation Challenge, Day 5 (Balance)


My 10 Day Meditation Challenge, Day 5

(Balance)

  [ The Experience ]

99 days ago, I challenged myself to meditate and chant for 40 consecutive days.  

I’ve been working around the clock on projects and so today’s meditation was truly welcomed.  As Andi even stated, it’s nice to find ways to take a pause in the day.

I really am grateful today I was able to pause to recenter myself.

[ My thoughts about Headspace ]

Screen Shot 2014-12-08 at 3.21.11 PMHeadspace is quite easy-to-use and interactive. The use of videos to present value alongside the meditations are great tools to help you understand the practice of meditation:

I love how I can track my progress and be a part of a larger community of simultaneous meditators. I also love that you can invite others to participate with you…

If you are reading this and want to join the challenge, add me to your Headspace App: “coachterag@gmail.com”. 

[ The Takeaway ]

Meditation is right for me. I feel light and like I can tackle another few hours on what needs to get done. Though, as I write that, isn’t the only thing that needs to be done is living and breathing? Hmmm…

I am grateful for perspective that lies within focused, inward breathing.

[ Question For You ]

Do you use meditation daily? If so, how has it helped you?

My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 12 (Coming Alive)


My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 12

(Coming Alive)

yogachallenge

[ Doing Me ]

Tuesdays are my heavy-hitter days. I coach a group session for Entrepreneurs via TeleConference for 75 minutes, then have a 45 minute break until my hour-long kickboxing class commences. It’s such a great flow; a flow that allows me to be filled up and nourished by Primary Foods, which are the foods we don’t eat:

Primary Foods, a term I’ve learned as a student at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, are your

Relationship, Career, Spirituality and Physical Activity.  

When these are in balance, you are in FLOW, which is the secret to happiness.

When I coach, I get to connect and build relationships that are so rewarding, while on the other hand, I get to build a rewarding career for myself, too. I satisfy my Primary Food areas of Relationship and Career. When I kickbox, I get to have fun with Physical Activity.

Though I have a daily meditation and chanting practice, my Tuesdays have become more WHOLE in this 30 Day Yoga Challenge because of the addition of Yoga.

I get to Do Me so fully and it feels wonderful…

[ The Experience ]

I took a Yoga Basics Class tonight, and this time the primary teacher was back.  Last week I was there, she had a sub.  I’m glad I got to take a class with her.  I enjoyed that the first thing she reminded us was that this was for us, and all we needed to do to have all we wanted was ask.

Of course, I didn’t ask anything, though my head screamed, “ask about downward dog”.  Alas, I sat, and sure enough, when we got into the first downward dog, she came over and helped me position my hands properly.

I don’t know why I do that. Maybe I know my mind is so powerful that even in silence, the Universe listens.  I could speak up more. Then again, no judgement, since I speak up just fine when “needed”, I suppose.

[ The Takeaway ]

“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
― Howard Thurman

At the beginning and ending of our class, our teacher said this quote.  She reminded us that to come alive can happen simply through our breath.

I’d add that it can happen simply by being filled up by the Primary Foods that feel yummy and fuel you…

[ Question For You ]

How do you come alive?
How often do you do it?

Here’s to your health, happiness and WHOLENESS!

My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 9 (Embrace The Pause)


My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 9

(Embrace The Pause)

yogachallenge

[ Saturday Night Yin ]

Yin on a Saturday night is perfect for me.  Saturdays are my off days, my days of rest, and I have found a great teacher who leads a Saturday Night Yin Class that I enjoy going to.  I do my best to shut off from work and obligations on Saturdays, and ending a restful day with this form of yoga practice is like a delicious dream.

[ The Experience ]

As I walked to class, with snow on the ground from the night before, I almost couldn’t believe how much I was looking forward to starting my Saturday night in deep, relaxing Yin postures.

I dressed warmly to shut out the chill from the cold, and only shed one layer as I entered the yoga studio.

The teacher started us with some movement postures to help us warm up.
Then, we got into equal breathing, or Sama Vritti Pranayama:

http://yoga.about.com/od/breathing/qt/samavritti.htm

[ The Takeaway ]

We did a modification of the equal breathing technique, creating a pause in between our inhales and exhales.  I thought this was very powerful.  The teacher noted, “in the pause of the breath is where it is said you will be able to quiet the mind.”  She also encouraged us to notice our breath, as it is an expression of how our mind is operating.

Throughout the class, I practiced the equal breathing in twisted postures and lengthening postures, as I deepened into the holds that helped open joints, ligaments and fascia within my body.

I embraced the pause between the inhales and exhales and savored the pauses between the moves more because of my newfound awareness of adding pause to breath.

This reminded me that breathing is great, but to have pause is divine…

Here’s to your health, happiness and WHOLENESS!

My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 5 (Tuesday)!


My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 5 (Tuesday)!

yogachallenge

[ 3-6-5 ]

Today I celebrated the first of many milestones I will experience in the next 365 days:

  • I celebrate being 3 weeks into my 6-Week Transformation Circle for Entrepreneurs. The majority of the 11 participants are Health Coaches and I am so honored to be able to be the Vessel for Their Potential.
  • I celebrate completing 6 weeks of kickboxing, which I entered to win on a whim… and won! 🙂 I am strong and centered and finished this week stronger than I started, and excited to be continuing the practice with my amazing coach, Lydia.
  • I celebrate showing up for 5 days of yoga.  I was gifted 30 days of unlimited yoga 5 days ago, so I took the gift and decided to challenge myself to utilize it to the fullest. Today, I enjoyed a Yoga Basics class…   

[ The Experience ]

So far, I’ve participated in a Yin class, two Hatha Classes (Day 3, Day 4) and a Kundalini Yoga class in my 4 days of this Yoga challenge.  I should note that in 2004 I was part of a Yoga Thai Chi Dance Troupe, so I’m not entirely new to the practice of Yoga in its multi-faceted form.  However, the person who I am now is definitely new, and I am thankful to be back into practice, as I approach it from a new angle.

After a day of coaching clients individually and in group setting, then a crazy kickboxing day, allowing myself to settle into a Yoga Basics class was so fitting and SO welcomed.  It allowed me to release, to be present, and most importantly, my 830PM class allowed me to breathe.

[ The Takeaway ]

I love to challenge myself so that life becomes less challenging.

As I finish Day 5 of my 30 Day Yoga Challenge, I am finding that I feel my body more (I have hips! lol) and that I am even more intentional with my breath than I already am (it’s Day 82 of my challenge to meditate/chant for 40 days, btw).

With every challenge, from holding the space for entrepreneurs to unstick their mindset, to getting back in shape with kickboxing, to learning how to love Yoga, I am realizing that the key to allowing a challenge to become fun, less challenging, and filled with results, is hidden in the breath.

For with every breath, we calm our bodies, our minds and open our hearts to what is… that which speaks (if we’ll listen):

YOU HAVE ALL YOU NEED
YOU ARE PERFECT
YOU ARE ENOUGH
&
YOU HAVE UNLIMITED POTENTIAL.

Breathing allows us another chance to purposefully participate for another 365.

So take a moment to check-in… Are you breathing?

Here’s to your health, happiness and WHOLENESS!

“20 More Amazing Things To Inspire You To Be Grateful Today”

What are you Grateful For?

I posted this simple question to a FaceBook Group I belong to today, and immediately the answers started to flow in.
Here are 20 of the replies I got… so far there are about 71 (and counting)… May they inspire you to be Grateful, too!

Because when you have an attitude of Gratitude, you break the Chains (and Cycle) of Negativity and open yourself to all Good Things!

  • I Am So Thankful/Grateful for all things, every single thing…Thankful from the heart!
  • So Grateful that my day job has every component I requested of Life.
  • Chocolate. Coffee. Autumn spices. My sweet lover. My sweetie girlfriends. My amazing kids. My house, my new car…. My body. My eyes. Having fun today. Grateful for the contrast, too!
  • I am grateful for a great life. Thank you thank you thank you
  • LIFE
  • Grateful that I remembered to ask the cells and molecules of my body to drink in infinite loving nurturing kindness caring and opulent receiving as I received a 90 minute relaxation massage this morning. It was like I was dancing with the divine
  • Today I am greatful for so many things: for my love my husband my twin soul, for my job, my boss and the people I work with, for the money in the bank, for my parents who love me and I love them, for facebook and watsapp that keep me close to the people who are far away, for good food and good music and my purple electric bike that take me where I need to go. For peace and quiet and harmony around me. For my dreams about tomorrow. I thank myself in all my forms for creating my life and perfecting them each day. I love you all.
  • . Yesterday….today …tomorrow!
  • Eyes to read this post and thumbs to reply with….
  • I’m grateful for the awareness I have today to look at life and death with all the stuff in between with a wonderful overstanding of all that is
  • The wonderful people in this world that make me smile 🙂
  • I appreciate my momentum of thinking in the positive direction and my ability to know what I want and the ability to know that I can have it
  • I am grateful for my shift in energy, my awakening and my like minded sisters!
  • For the positive changes in my life.
  • Grateful for everything I have. 🙂

  • My son
  • I am grateful for EVERYTHING……
