Be Your Own Loving Parent

Be Your Own Loving Parent

Mother’s Day reminds us how parents and caregivers spend an extraordinary amount of time taking care of both the physical and emotional needs of others, especially children. The whole concept of loving ourselves is often ignored and our own personal needs and feelings are put on hold. It’s not typically a conscious act, but this type of self-neglect can have a negative effect on our health. Imagine how much better we would feel if we turned some of that same love and attention to ourselves, becoming our own loving parent. It’s the ultimate in self-care!

Vibrating Health Through The Chakras (Part 3 of 3)

Vibrating Health Through The Chakras (Part 3 of 3)

Clearing the whirlpools of energetic vibration with movement is what purifies the chakra system. By releasing physical tension, you transform thought patterns or beliefs that hold this tension in place. Even 10 minutes of daily yoga, movement, or some type of contemplative practice increases stress resilience, reduces anxiety, and teaches how to refrain from engaging in the fight/flight/freeze response when triggered.

Understanding Chakras (Part 1 of 3)

Chakras are Prana or Energy that flows through the spinal column. When the chakra is cleared, Prana moves freely without obstruction. Yoga is a practice that unites the mindbody and breath where the purifying movements burn stored up tension. Emotions, whether you are conscious of them or not, motivate behaviors. Fear, safety, sadness, relief, anger, revenge, enjoyment and self expression, are all characteristics that tend to unknowingly reveal themselves when the emotions go underground.

Role of Yoga in Anxiety or Depression Therapy

Role of Yoga in Anxiety or Depression Therapy

If you’re not already into the practice of Yoga, you may roll your eyes at the thought of getting into a downward facing dog pose (or wonder what the heck that is) while you’re in the middle of therapy. But believe it or not, there is a deep connection between the core concepts of Yoga and many therapy practices, especially for anxiety and depression – and you don’t even have to get into downward facing dog or do a headstand to reap the benefits.

Yoga for coping and healing from Cancer, Trauma, Depression, Family Discord, Anger Management and extreme stress.

Life can be difficult at times and when it is there are tools that can help.  Research, neuroscience, and countless self help books validate that unresolved, repressed, even events that have been “dealt with” in psychotherapy often endure.  Symptoms can range from chronic fatigue, mood swings, anxiety and panic attacks, physical pain, and “numbing out” behaviors.  In addition to talk therapies, getting the body on board in the healing journey with movement such as yoga, walking, swimming, dancing, in a private session or group fitness class is not only helpful, but actually quite healthy for anti-aging, weight control, improving confidence, balance, flexibility and just practicing being in your breathing body!
