The only 2 quotes you’ll need to relax (and succeed)!


[ ‪#‎GentleNudge‬ ] 28Jan2015 ~ The only quote you’ll need to relax (and succeed)!

yay

Here’s Your Weekly Wednesday #GentleNudge To Get You Over The Hump…
and into the weekend!

I recently took my final test as a student at the Institute For Integrative Nutrition, the Largest Nutrition School in the World.  This means, that I am a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach!

Will Health Coaches be the future of healthcare? Doctors are trained to treat illnesses, but they do not help their patients change the behaviors that lead to them. Health Coach and IIN graduate Maria Marlowe explains why Health Coaches fill a unique role in the medical field that is becoming evermore crucial.

Before taking my final test to graduate, I had to really ground myself and get focused.  In order to do so, I took a moment to remember two important quotes (or, mantras):

“I am at the right place, at the right time”
“There is no need to worry or rush, the Universe always has perfect timing”

Allowing myself to settle into these undeniable truths, I relaxed… and aced the test 100%!

 The Takeaway

In life you have choices… you can choose to be stressed, or choose to be blessed.  Find a way to stay relaxed and trust the process.  Know that you are exactly where you ought to be right now, and that the only time that matters, truly, is right now.

What are your thoughts? How do you relax when you are entering a major life changing event? Do you have a mantra! Feel free to comment below!

My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 23 (The Yoga of Sound)


My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 23

(The Yoga of Sound)

yogachallenge

[ Yoga is breath ]

Yoga is breath. Yoga is breathing, and everything else (the poses, stretches, etc), are bonuses.

If yoga is breath, and sound is made with breath, then today it became clear that Yoga unites sound as energy, as breath, for the purpose of healing and traversing the limitations of the mind.

[ The Experience ]

I attended The Yoga of Sound workshop today.  As we opened with an Ocean of Aum (Om), I was instantly triggered into a state of bliss, a feeling of lightness and peace. I was taken back in time to a period of my life when I chanted everyday and read the Bhagavad Gita when I was 17 into my early 20s.

I chant daily now, not quite like I did then, but it is still a vibrational boost that opens up my Being every time I do it.

Screen Shot 2014-12-13 at 4.11.52 PM

[ The Takeaway ]

I enjoy chanting, especially when there is a harmonium as we had in the workshop today.

When I chant with my eyes closed, I see a light that illuminates inside of the darkness.

I think my biggest take away from the workshop is that in chanting, I allow myself to be opened because I am so moved by music and sound (and music and sound, are the highest vibrations that exist).  They connect us to our souls, and as we are connected by these vibrations, we are connected to our essence.

[ Question For You ]

Have you tried chanting? What are your thoughts?

My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 16 (Do Nothing)


My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 16

(Do Nothing)

yogachallenge

[ R.A.I.N. ]

This whole week I’ve looked forward to doing a Yin class.  I love the teacher and I enjoy being able to turn off in my yoga practice. As I walked to the 730PM class tonight, the air, fresh from earlier rainfall, I became more and more excited for what was to come.  Though excited I was, I was mindful to bring myself back to the present, feeling excited to be outside in the night air, so crisp, so clean. So now.

Rain, or rather water, is a powerfully cleansing element.  It has the ability to remove toxicity while simultaneously being a healing agent.

Tonight our teacher shared with us a great technique as we embraced our Joyful Discomfort, which she has explained is the edge of a pose where it is deep enough to feel joyful, yet not where we are forced or pulled into hurting.

The technique for healing was called R.A.I.N.:

Recognize
Accept (or, Allow)
Investigate and do
Nothing.

Rain_practice
Four steps to stop being so hard on ourselves. 

In a nutshell, it is a mantra to help you in times of overwhelm, and in yoga, in those places of Joyful Discomfort. If you’d like to explore more, here’s the article on the R.A.I.N mantra.

[ The Experience ]

Yin is a form of yoga that allows you to target areas differently than other forms of yoga. The main difference is that Yin targets, and opens up, the fascia, which is said to store our emotions.

Joyful Discomfort in Yin allows you to open up emotionally, in places such as in the hips (aka your sexual emotions) and the lower back where your kidneys rest.  By the way, the kidneys are said to be where your anger is stored.  And because breathing is so vital to everything you do, I should also mention that the lungs are said to store grief… as we breathed today, sometimes together, mostly individually, our teacher encouraged us to

Breathe in joy, Breathe out grief/shame
Breathe in the present, Breathe out what’s holding you in the past
Breathe in generosity to your SELF, Breathe out the harshness of SELF

This last breath was important, because as we began the class, the teacher opened the space with this story as we reclined in a meditative posture:

A bus driver was driving a bus and a young girl comes up
and offers him a handful of peanuts.
The driver says,
“what a sweet little girl.  Thank you so much for your generosity.”
The girl goes back and a few minutes later,
she comes up with another handful of peanuts.
The driver says, “wow, you are so generous.
Thank you so much for sharing your peanuts with me.”
The young girl returns to her seat.
A few minutes go by and the young girl comes back up
and hands the bus driver another handful of peanuts.
The driver receives them and says,
“Oh, you know, you don’t have to keep doing this.
Thank you for your peanuts, but really,
you should enjoy them yourself. Don’t give them all away.”
And the young girl says,
“It’s OK, my friends and I just like to suck the chocolate off of them.”
(I believe this joke was adapted. Read the “original” here.)

[ The Takeaway ]

With that anecdote, I chuckled in my reclined, relaxed opening posture.

Yin-ing onward, we were encouraged to find ways to add lightness to our night’s experience, and through it, find ways to be more generous to ourselves in our daily life.  She then reminded us that every 6 seconds the mind wanders, and that it’s nothing to worry about or think of as bad… just as something that is, and to gently return to our tool of equal breathing to help get centered in the present.

Then she beautifully layered on our new tool of RAIN sometime during our class. I’d guess that it was maybe around the half-way mark.  Whatever time it was, I received the message of the mantra in the way I was supposed to for that moment, and to be able to share the information with you, herein.

As the 75-minute class came to an end, I found myself crisp and clear, cleansed by the ‘N’ of the mantra, Do Nothing. The N came in handy as my Joyful Discomfort finally started to open me up more than it has in previous Yin Classes, methinks, simply because I no longer felt obligated to identify with any thoughts that were not serving me.

Instead, I was generous to my self, allowing surrender to gravity and The Now. 

[ Question For You ]

How can you be more generous to your self?

(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 ]

Screen Shot 2014-11-28 at 11.20.35 AM

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!

My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 3 (Sunday)!


My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 3 (Sunday)!

yogachallenge[ All is Well ]

Do you have a personal mantra?

Earlier this year, I asked for help from one of my fellow Health Coaches at school.  I was trying to get back to center, to my core, which involved getting back into the water again, just for fun.

You see, I’d spent just under 15 years of my life as a competitive swimmer, and when I stopped being competitive, I also stopped enjoying being in the water. I actually had become fearful to just BE in the water, because for so long, swimming meant having to DO something (win, break records, go, go, go).  With a lil’ bit of encouragement, the Health Coach I worked with helped me to come up with a personal mantra earlier this year:

All is Well.

As the months past, I had almost forgotten my mantra. Today I was gently reminded of the importance of having a personal mantra when I attended my first Hatha Yoga Class.

[ The Experience ]

Screen Shot 2014-11-23 at 6.28.00 PMThe movements were repetitive. They weren’t to be forced. The mantra we used:

Here. Now.

As we inhaled the movements, we breathed in presence.

As we exhaled and moved, we released into the Now.

I found myself listening to my body and going deeper into each repetition, easier, more easy than how I had started when class begun.

[ The Takeaway ]

Our personal mantras usually sound like this:

I’m Tired. I’m late. I’m busy.

And what happens? Well, naturally, we get more of that which we think (thank you Law of Attraction!)  Our mantras become us.

I learned today to settle into the CHOICES I can make for myself each day, moment to moment.  I can choose to be busy, or choose to be immersed in the fact that all is well.  Just the same, I can choose to be lost in “out there”, or simply in the loving, supported blessing of BEING. Here. Now.

What’s your personal mantra?

Here’s to your health, happiness and WHOLENESS!
