Meditation Station (part 3)

March 25, 2019

“You should sit in meditation for twenty minutes every day - unless you're too busy; then you should sit for an hour.” -Dr. Sukhraj Dhillon

Ahhhh, busyness. Busyness is the new black. Busyness is the new emotion. Busyness is the new coping mechanism. “How are you?” Busy.

Meditation Station (part 3) l Mukha Yoga

What is busy anyway? It’s a life with no space, it’s barely breathing as you move from one commitment to the next, it’s consumption, it’s overdoing as a means of getting. Meditation is the exact opposite, and in fact the antidote to busy.

Through a constant and consistent practice of meditation, we receive the effects of cumulative peace and pause. I consider meditation a pause button, best practiced at those natural “spaces between” throughout the day: between night and day, between work and home, between being alone and being with others. Meditation slows our thinking and reactions and has been proven to decrease symptoms of anxiety and depression.

I offer you this, from one “busy” person to another. Meditate however you can, whenever you can, as often as you can. Let it be anywhere from 3 minutes of closing your eyes and consciously breathing and being present to a 20 minute sit in front of an altar. The benefits of meditation are cumulative. Therefore, through constancy and consistency, shifts will happen. You will find yourself with an increased ability to pause and breathe before responding to people. You will experience more peace and ease in your daily life. Too busy to meditate? Give it three minutes.

Asteya: Non-stealing

December 10, 2019

Before yoga, I lived a painful life of endless comparison. This is how I chose my education, my career, my first boyfriend, shoes, purses, clothes, baby toys, everything. If someone else wanted it, then I had to have it. Compared to them, I lacked something that would surely ease the emptiness. I was clueless on how to live my life and make good choices.

Sound Healing with Crystal Singing Bowls

December 10, 2019

Everything vibrates, and where there is vibration, there is sound. Everything is energy. A rock, a glass of water, your hand. Everything you can touch, taste, or smell are made of molecules, which are made of atoms, which are made of protons, electrons, and neutrons, which are all vibrating bundles of energy.

All About Meditation Cushions

December 04, 2019

Before I ever used meditation cushions, I used pillows from my couch and folded up blankets—anything that would lift my hips a little and provide some sort of respite to my lower back. While my inventions were okay as placeholders, they did not make sitting for long periods of time comfortable or fun
