I’ve been threatening to share this information with several of you for awhile now, and meaning to share it with the rest of you, too. And now I am finally following through! Yay, us!
I cannot recommend a yoga practice, enough, to anyone wanting to live more fully & intentionally in their body, to embody. For anyone wanting to heal their heart. For anyone wanting to feel good in body and mind and spirit (and heart). If I could write a prescription for all beings, but especially my beloved clients, it would be:
- Take your weight. Divide it in 2. Use that number to determine your water intake, in ounces. example: 100 pounds, divided by 2 equals 50. So 50 ounces of water per day. Everyday.
- A massage every month, minimum. More if you can afford it. (my own Massage-A-Month-Club can help with that!)
- Yoga ATLEAST once a week, ideally 2-3x
- 30 minute gratitude walk everyday.
- Deep Belly Breathing throughout the day
- LOVE yourself unequivocally (!!!) (if you only do one of these, let it be this! followed closely by #1 on this list!)
I believe EVERYTHING in life can be resolved with this formula. It might seem bold OR simple & naive, but these hold the key to powerful change on a cellular & energetic level, which, by no coincidence is where all dis-ease and suffering, originate.These powerful allies can help change your mind, your body, your spirit.
Our beautiful lake & landscape inspires, encourage & invites many seekers & healers to our area, so we are quite lucky to have an abundance of high quality teachers and helpers right here on our path. Today, Im naming 2 of my favorites, Karen & Jessica, which includes info about their awesome offerings!
Karen is a powerful teacher~she taught classes at The Center, (my sister Jenn & my former wellness center, if youre new to my practice). If you’re looking for a Thursday evening class with another amazing woman, here’s your chance! I’m stoked she will be at Grow Benzie in the community center!
