Hello and welcome to my blog!
I actually can’t quite believe that my first blog post is ACTUALLY happening. Managing a household & family, 4 small children, homeschooling, and looking after myself, I’m baffled that I manage to find time to run a business! As they say, where there is a will, there is a way.
I have been on quite the journey over the past 10 years. Recovering from mental illness and healing from Poly Cycstic Ovarian Syndrome was and has been an ongoing commitment. Recovering my health and vitality took healing on all levels- mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. So within my blog, you can expect to see info on all the elements of healing that have played a role in my successful recovery. From Ayurveda, to fitness, yoga & meditation, nutrition, as well as mindset and coaching. All these things continue to play a huge positive role in my life, and I have seen the lives of many of my clients change dramatically, just by slowly implementing this essentially ‘holistic’ way of life.
One of the best things that EVER happened to me, and continues to happen, is falling in love with Yoga. And by that I mean Yoga in it’s most complete sense- the lifestyle, the asana’s, the love and compassion, Ayurveda, kirtan, meditation, relationships, and ultimately, our relationship with the Supreme… Yoga is everything we need to live an AMAZING life of HAPPINESS and FULFILLMENT.
To celebrate love; and to celebrate yoga, every Monday I’ll be posting a yoga-asana sequence based on a simple and achievable 5 poses a day program. The main focus of the program is to integrate yoga-asana’s into our lives in a way that does not add pressure, nor feel like a ‘should’. 5 poses, to be held for a minimum of 5 breaths each, can take anywhere from 5-30 mins, based on how you’re feeling on the day, and how much time you have available.
5 poses breaks down the need for a spare 60-90mins to be able to practice.
5 poses allows us to open, soften and stretch regularly without taking away from our day.
5 poses gives us TIME and SPACE internally and externally.
Here is Day One of the program (right click and save to download it for easy reference; or Pin it). You can practice the same sequence over and over throughout the week- moving deeper into each pose, spending more time discovering different elements of the pose. Or you can make up your own sequences. If you’d like a copy of my free Yoga and Meditation guide, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll send you a copy. It has some great sequences and a full break down of over 50 yoga poses to help get your started in your practice.
I hope you enjoy practicing the sequence and I look forward to catching up with you about it in our women’s only support group!
And remember to NEVER under estimate your impact on the world.
You are making an impact already. The magnitude and effect of that impact is based on your level of effort and awareness of what’s possible.
So how are you impacting other’s and your environment? (Food for thought 😉 )
