Setting Up a Home Yoga Practice

March 05, 2019

I have heard countless times, “I wish I were disciplined enough to practice at home.” To which I reply, “unroll your yoga mat, start there.” REALLY! Place your mat in view and intentionally create space for practice to be a possibility. Second, move intuitively, use your practice to get to know YOU. Much like meditation, many people get hung up on needing their home practice to be perfect, rather than needing it to be real. Keep it simple, set a timer for 20 minutes, put on music if you’d like, move your body and breathe.

Keeping hydrated is one of the most important things that you can do for your body. Your mood, energy levels, metabolism, and immune function all depend on adequate water consumption.

Relieving Anxiety

May 20, 2020

Worry and anxiety happen when we experience fear about the future due to painful experiences in the past. I’ve heard it said that “if it’s hysterical, it’s historical!” Everything we experience is imprinted in our psyche and embedded in the physical and subtle parts of our body. Our tissues hold memories of the past.

Yoga for Sciatica

May 13, 2020

Your two sciatic nerves are the longest and largest single nerves in the human body. They begin at the bottom of your spine, run through your pelvis (usually under your piriformis muscle) down each of your legs, and end in your toes. Because of the distance it covers, the location and severity of sciatic pain differs from person to person.
