My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 28 (Tightrope, Eyes Closed)


My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 28

(Tightrope, Eyes Closed)

yogachallenge

[ New heights ]

The other day I was in Yoga Basics and our teacher had us do a pose that took me to new heights.

We were asked to stand with feet in line with each other, heel to toe, and balance.  First with eyes open, then with eyes slightly open.

Finally, we were doing a tightrope, eyes closed.

[ The Experience ]

Today, I did my yoga practice at home, integrating the tightrope into my experience.  Though it was nothing like this,

Tightrope-walker_1-620x339

allowing myself to find balance with my eyes closed felt as liberating as this:

[ The Takeaway ]

I feel strong, clear and I trust myself and my body more than ever.  This 30 Day Yoga Challenge has really awakened me to my SELF, my essence and the power I have within me.

I enjoy yoga. I love it.  15-minutes lifts me up just as much as 75-minutes. Yoga brings me to appreciate life.  I feel energized. I feel alive.

All good things.

My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 25 (Enjoy Simplicity)


My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 25

(Enjoy Simplicity)

yogachallenge

[ Do What Feels Good ]

Yoga is a feeling sport.  Do what feels good, and you’ll do just fine.

[ The Experience ]

On this 25th day of my 30 Day Yoga Challenge, I am grateful that I get as much out of doing my practice at home as I do going to the studio.

Today I have a lot of clients that I am working with, so getting to the yoga studio for a 75-minute practice would just add stress because I would feel rushed.  So, as I intentionally did poses that felt good, that were simple and that fit my schedule, I came out as rejuvenated as if I’d gone for 75-minutes at the studio vs the 20-minutes I did at home.

[ The Takeaway ]

I will continue to do yoga after this challenge. I trust myself to feel my way into doing what feels good for my mind, body and soul, which gives me the confidence that I will always know what I need in the moment as I integrate yoga into my day.

Busy or not, there’s always room for yoga.  

And the more I enjoy the simplicity in allowing myself to embrace the moments I can fit it in, the more I enjoy yoga as something that is accessible and doable.

[ Question For You ]

Have you tried yoga yet?

My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 17 (Yoga Or Nap?)


My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 17

(Yoga Or Nap?)

yogachallenge

[ What To Do ]

I love using tarot, astrology, Doreen Virtue’s cards (Goddess Oracle Cards, Ascendent Master Deck), and even flipping coins to help make decisions.  The latter has even helped me win $2200 in cash and prizes on a game show once…

Before the flip. Before the win.
Before the flip. Before the win. #LMAD

I love my helpers.  I also know that if you’re like me and use similar tools to make decisions, you resonate with their answers because you already know what to do.

[ The Experience ]

I couldn’t fall asleep last night.  My mind raced with ideas for my business.  They were great, appreciated thoughts, just not what I had planned when I got in bed.  I think it must have taken me about 2 hours to fall asleep.

With about 5 or 6 hours of sleep, I got ready and got to 10 AM Kickboxing. Then I had a day at a craft faire (well, 2.5 hours), and had to get back home before heading to a dinner with some friends.

I was going to catch a 4PM Hatha Yoga class today before going to the dinner. I decided to take a “30 minute” nap, and l ended up sleeping 2 hours and 15 minutes, instead.

[ The Takeaway ]

I didn’t make yoga class today.  I chose to be generous to my Self, to rest and flow with what my body and mind needed.  I was all the more merrier for it.

My day was filled with creativity and yummy physical activity. My evening was filled with laughter, our friend’s two young boys’ antics and delicious vegetarian food.

Yet, when we returned home, I still had time to do some yoga, so I did a 10-minute practice that included meditation, simple, effective postures and some chanting for my chakras.  Afterward, I immersed in a cleansing bath and the day felt complete.

So, did I Yoga or Nap? I did both… I did yoga and I surely did nap.  I did both in ways that suited my body, heart, soul and mind, and on my own terms.  I am proud of myself for allowing myself to flow with life, rather than forcing it into what I thought it should be or what I should do.

As I end my active day, I feel rested and complete. Complete in my Being and complete in accomplishing another day of my commitment to my 30 Day Yoga Challenge.

[ Question For You ]

What do you do to get to feel complete and whole?

My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 15 (Do Something)


My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 15

(Do Something)

yogachallenge

[ Halfway There! ]

Wow! Only because I am sitting down to write this blog, I realize that I am at the halfway point of my 30 Day Yoga Challenge Journey… time flies!

Thank goodness for journaling/blogging. It really is a valuable tool in being able to chart your progress, which leads to the celebration of milestones. Woohoo!

Today I did a Kundalini class, which I am happy to say was the first class I did in this 30 Day Yoga Challenge.

[ The Experience ]

My partner and I decided to go to a 9 AM Kundalini class this morning.  I had done it once before (Day 8, Part 1), and my partner thought it would be nice to try a 9 AM Kundalini class, too.

We were going to leave at 8:20AM.  At 7:30, I rolled over and said, “I want to stay in bed.”

I slept another 20 minutes and then woke up as thoughts flooded my head…

But I committed to it yesterday.
I don’t want to back out.
I don’t have the energy to go to Gloria’s class.
Talk talk talk…

At 8:10, I hopped in the shower and threw on clothes.  Because as I lay in bed, not sleeping, one of the last things my brain said was,

Today’s going to be busy,
I don’t know when I’ll get a chance to go,
if I don’t go at 9AM.

And it was true.  I attended a webinar training that went over an hour longer than expected, and then I had to rush out to go babysit a friend’s 1.5 and 3.5 year olds… after doing some email follow up with clients.

Plus, had to call and sing to my grandpa happy birthday before I left the house.

Today, my grandpa turned 92 years old!

Screen Shot 2014-12-05 at 11.20.35 PM

[ The Takeaway ]

We focused mostly on our energy center in our gut area today. It was exactly what I needed.

Before leaving the house, I stated out loud, “I’ll just do what I can”, and this sentiment was echoed by the Universe via a statement our teacher said during class:

“You don’t have to do everything,
But you have to do something.”

I needed the reminder that I could push myself and listen to my body and rest and modify movements, as I chose.  After all, Yoga is your practice, and yours alone, whether or not there are people present as you practice.

By the same token, having someone there to keep you going is a plus.  Because, sometimes, we just need someone to lean on in order to keep flowing…

After all, as my grandpa says, he is 92 years old because of being kind, first and foremost. Not because of being an island in a sea of people…

[ Question For You ]

What keeps you going when you want to stay in bed?

My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 13 (Embrace The Uncomfortable)


My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 13

(Embrace The Uncomfortable)

yogachallenge

[ Eyes Closed, Listening ]

I did myself a favor today and took a nap after I finished my workday.

Mind you, I’m no nap amateur… I am a regular, Nap Master! However, today’s nap got me to really listen to my heart and my body.  What I heard was, “do Yin“.

[ The Experience ]

Normally on Wednesdays I DJ a 3-hour set at a Bouldering Gym, and today I was off. I’ll be DJ’ing this week on Saturday, instead, for a big competition they are holding. So, I took advantage of the timing to visit the teacher I take Yoga Basics with, who also teaches Yin.

It was nice to get to see her style in this format.  Honestly, I enjoy her teaching style, I just feel I enjoy a different teacher for my Yin class. And that’s perfectly fine, ya know?

After all, yoga is all about YOU, first and foremost.

Still, I’m glad I went because she had me doing simple poses that were a lil’ more uncomfortable today.  I think it’s because my hamstrings were tighter because of Kickboxing yesterday.   Nonetheless, I kept my eyes closed the majority of the time (getting better at trusting) and I felt my way into deepened movement, so as to really open the connective tissues in my body.

[ The Takeaway ]

We tend to only do what feels right. I mean, who wouldn’t, ya know? It makes sense to do what feels good.  However “good” isn’t always the best thing for our growth.

Today the teacher encouraged us to “listen to [our] heart and body”, and embrace the uncomfortable as part of the process of healing.  Though some of the holds and twists were uncomfortable, I embraced them with presence and the fullness of Me. I breathed.

We also focused on our adrenals today, and our teacher reminded us that the best and most efficient way to get the adrenals back in balance is simply through our deep, relaxed breath.

It appears, all roads lead to the breath…

[ Question For You ]

When was the last time you
embraced the uncomfortable?
How did you grow from the experience?

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?

My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 10 (Release the Toxins)


My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 10

(Release the Toxins)

yogachallenge

[ Yoga Opens You Up ]

Yoga is great for many things, like the improvement of flexibility, stress management and weight control.

It is also great for releasing the toxins we have stored up.

I eat relatively clean (vegetarian since my teens), don’t drink (going on 2 years in 7 days) or smoke cigarettes (since earlier this year), and live in a city with the most yummy air you can breathe.  I also choose to only connect with people who add value to my life and fill me up with joy.

However, toxins aren’t just found in your environment, the foods you eat and the people you relate with.  Toxins are connected to our emotions and subsequently, they are released via the chakras, or energy centers, that open up through the process of Yoga.

THE_Chakra_Chart

[ The Experience ]

Day 10!

…and I’ve released, or rather, opened up, SO much this first 1/3 of my 30 Day Yoga Challenge, that I came down with a bit of a sore throat and cough in the last 48 hours.  This morning, I canceled my kickboxing, and thought I could at least make it to the Yoga Studio for an evening Hatha class.

Alas, although I really wanted to head to a class today, I believe in Self Care:

…And because I believe in filling my well, I stayed away from the Studio.  I worked in bed all day (aka “laid low”) and at night, I went out to get some (spicy) Veggie Udon Soup (with extra ginger) and Yam Tempura and Avocado Rolls with my partner.

As soon as we came back from sushi restaurant, I did a 45-minute at-home Yoga session.

[ The Takeaway ]

Daily I meditate and chant, so I made sure I added it into my Yoga practice.  I had my cellphone by me to create 2 or 5 minute intervals for the postures or breath work I integrated into my healing home practice.  Because of my slight congestion, I focused mostly on breath work…

I started with the Chinmaya Mudra I learned Day 8.  I used the equal breathing technique, Sama Vritti Pranayama, I learned in a Yin class on Day 9, pausing before each inhalation and exhalation. I held a favorite pose I learned in another class. I did lymphatic bouncing I’ve learned in my guided meditation practice I started in January of 2014.

I did some vibrational chakra tones to open up.

kelly93a

I did what my body asked of me, pulling from what I’d learned in the last 10 days and from past experience.

I sat in silence.

At the end of my practice tonight, I feel so open, light, and healthier than when I began.

Yoga is a practice that is great in a group/class setting. AND great wherever, too…

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:

Screen Shot 2014-11-30 at 12.52.09 AM
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 8 (No Try, Just Do… Part 2)


My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 8

(No Try, Just Do… Part 2)

yogachallenge

[ Safe, Supported ]

  • 9 Yoga Classes ago, on a Friday, I partook in an evening Kundalini Class that begun this 30 Day Yoga Challenge.
  • 1 Class ago (this morning), I partook in a Friday morning Kundalini Class… and easily lifted my head, legs and arms 6 inches off the ground while laying down.  A “feat”, I was not able to do last Friday evening.
  • Tonight, I released deeply in another Yin Class. I released into the mantra
I am safe and supported in the world.

[ The Experience ]

We had a guest teacher. I really enjoyed her style.  We did postures I normally would allow my head to talk me out of doing, like sitting on my knees at the beginning of the class as we opened with a hand posture that allowed us to open up and allow flow of energy to drop into our torso.

chinmaya_mudra-tranquilitytraining
Chinmaya Mudra (Gesture of Manifested Consciousness) via TranquilityTraining.Com 

This hand posture, called the Chinmaya Mudra, is said to be great for lowering blood pressure and calming the mind.  It is also good for the lungs, which we opened up in class today (and I welcomed greatly):

[ The Takeaway ]

We ended the class with another Chinmaya Mudra.  The teacher asked us to notice how we felt.  Noticeably at the end of the class, as well as during the class, I felt a sense of peace, release and calm.

During class, I was present
and I felt my body finally give over to gravity.

I released my control and deepened into my practice for what I feel has been the first time these 8 days.

Maybe it’s the Chinmaya Mudra. Maybe it’s the consistent showing up. Maybe it’s being gentle with myself that’s helping.

Maybe it’s all of the above.

All I know is that I’m going to keep this up. Because I feel the shift happening already…

My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 8 (No Try, Just Do… Part 1)


My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 8

(No Try, Just Do… Part 1)

[ Kundalini at 9AM?! ]

Oh, no… I’m becoming one of those crazy Yoga people.

Last night I scanned the schedule of classes and saw that my instructor who does Kundalini Friday nights had a 9 AM Friday morning class.

I hesitated with an out loud statement to my partner, “maybe I’ll try to go”.

Then, with confidence I said, “no, I’m not going to try to go. I’m just going to do it.”

[ The Experience ]

Kundalini is like Yoga on Aerobics… and the instructor/Director, Gloria, that teaches the class I go to, makes Kundalini more like

Yoga on Aerobics times P90X times Zen master plus a hint of Iron Man.

LOL

OK, I exaggerate.  I’ve never done P90X, nor an Iron Man Triathlon.  But, her classes are definitely famous (notorious?) for being one-of-a-kind whip-your-bum-into-shape classes… that you’ll end up falling in love with and keep coming back for more and more because she’s made you stop thinking completely. 🙂

[ The Takeaway ]

When my alarm went off at 7:17 AM, I laid there and observed my mind chatter coming up with all the thoughts of how to get out of doing Kundalini at 9AM.  But as 7:57 rolled in, I found my body just moved to its own beat.  My legs just carried me away, and before I knew it…

I was early to class!

And you know what?

Sweat dripped, no poured, down my face and body. I laughed. I DANCED. I listened to my body, not my mind…

And after class, I texted my partner, “What a good decision!”

I felt empowered, rejuvenated and ready for the day in a powerful way.

Would I do it again?

What do you think? 🙂 

With that, if you want a taste of Gloria’s Kundalini Class, here you go… Keep in mind we normally go for an hour and 15 minutes, and this is not even a hiccup in the wind of what we do:

An intense workout with Gloria Latham, director of Semperviva Yoga, that will quickly and powerfully unblock your energy channels and clear your mind.

I am going to a Yin Class later this evening… double header, what?! Yup!

Here’s to your health, happiness and WHOLENESS!
