Let’s Talk Benefits!

I would like to share some from my own personal experience. ( It’s worth reading to the end:))

Yoga will…

1)Help you relax 

2)Help you focus 

3)Assist in creating a healthier lifestyle because of increased awareness-The better you feel the more you will want to support your overall health, and well-being. 

4)It builds better bones. It is 

documented that weight-bearing exercise strengthens bones. I was diagnosed with Osteopenia, and with the help of a continued yoga practice, It has helped to strengthen my bones. 

5)It helps to drain lymph and boost immunity because you are contracting and stretching muscle.   

6)It prevents cartilage and joint breakdown

Joint cartilage is like a sponge; 

And certain postures hone in on specific areas of the body squeezing out old fluid so new fluid can be absorbed, feeding the joints with fresh nutrients. 

7)Yoga helps to decrease the symptoms of IBS and other digestive issues. 

Ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome, constipation— can all be exacerbated by stress. So if you stress less, you’ll suffer less. 

Now, if I haven’t convinced you yet with all the benefits I have listed above that practicing yoga is worth your time, this one just might “seal the deal.”

8)Would you believe that yoga improves your sex life?   You will become a lot more “bendy.” 

Enough said!

Sweet Dreams are Made of This…

This last year I chose to focus on having a healthy relationship with God, myself, my children, my family, food, and money.

I began by asking myself if am I acting out of obligation, duty, guilt and or fear and if so, I practiced responding differently.

Two days ago my friend wanted me to agree with her perspective. I perceived her situation as unhealthy. Instead of me agreeing with her out of guilt for fear she would be mad at me, I let her have her feelings and let her know even though I disagreed with her situation, I still valued our friendship.

Last night I specifically dedicated my meditation towards the intention of having healthy relationships.

In my dream, I dreamt I ran over my glasses. I interpreted this to mean I destroyed the crutch of my outdated perception.

That morning I received a text from my friend that was honest and sincere, owning her intention for me to agree with her and requesting her need for space. It was so refreshing.

As I continue to open up to living a more healthy and balanced life, it is being reflected in my relationships.
