March 2014 Issue

A New Milestone for Me!

I just concluded the second milestone in my Insight Yoga Institute training. I attended the "Integrated Awakening" retreat by Jennifer Welwood, a psychologist and spiritual leader. We attendees used intense psycho-spiritual tools to "meet" ourselves, most in ways we had never done before.

It was intense and eye opening for me. I discovered many non-mindful thoughts and beliefs that I didn't realize I had. It was a painful process of self-discovery, but yet an experience that I would not miss. Sometimes the journey through personal development is not an easy one. Such was the case for me and most other attendees.

Learning to assimilate our "shadow selves" is a painful process. If you are following me on Facebook, you will notice that I am focusing on this right now for teaching. In the psychological world, this same concept is called the "separate self." It is that part of us which we chose to deny that is in us. That part of ourselves that make us human. We are all the same in this humanness!

It was an interesting journey, one that I hope you will continue to take with me going forward! Humanness is most definitely more beautiful than perfection! As always, I will continue to provide lots of new information on yoga and other topics of the body-mind connection.

My desire is to bring you information to keep your own mind-body pathways open for a balanced life full of optimum health and spirituality! You can learn to use your own body as a window to your soul, to discover healing.

In addition, please consider joining me on Pinterest. I find that pictures are a very useful aid to remind you to do your practices! This is especially true, if you save them to your boards AND your desktop at work, to remind you to breathe, stay calm and practice mindfulness.

New Articles This Month on Yin Yoga

Because I was on retreat for a week, I didn't write as many articles this past month. I do hope you enjoy what I did write. I continue on in my series of Yin Yoga poses. Never underestimate the immense therapeutic value of these long-held poses to increase your mindfulness of your body, your thoughts and feelings and for discovering your deepest personal truths. Yin Yoga is an incredible way to deepen your personal practice.

The yin yoga photos are taken on Pranang Beach, Railay, Thailand. This beach is near where I took my Yin Yoga teacher training intensive with Sarah Powers, just recently. I extended my vacation to include some decompression time, after this packed training. I hope you enjoy the setting! I sure did!
