In honor of my FREE 30-Day Yoga Un-challenge, which starts September 1st, we explore the breath in today’s video, which is the foundation of my yoga lineage, Ashtanga. I demonstrate two breathing techniques:
- The three part diaphragmatic breath
- Ujjayi breath
I am so excited to introduce you to Ginny. She is in my business mastermind group. Ginny is one of the most soul-full and thoughtful beings. She is encouraging, compassionate and whole-heartedly working to make a difference in the world. She is one of those people who leaves you feeling uplifted and inspired after each encounter. I love how she is honoring her life’s dharma.
Chris and I escaped to Northern Arizona for a little R&R. One of my favorite ways to recharge is kayaking & camping. The Blue Ridge Reservoir provides the perfect backdrop for contemplation. I sit here by the campfire reflecting on the past two weeks. The awareness and insights during the MBSR training and the process of re-integration, both in terms of what I’ve learned and how do I apply it to my daily life.
I am beyond honored to introduce you to Paula. Paula’s interview is raw, authentic, honest and beautiful in her ability to stay present to all that’s come up in the last 5 years since losing her oldest son. Her grace, wisdom and compassion brought me to tears. What an amazing soul!
How are you following your life path (dharma)?
By living out one of my favorite Rumi quotes – “The wound is where the lights enters” I am following my dharma. My life path was illuminated through a deep, gashing wound that tore away everything I believed to be true about the order of the universe. The unexpected death of my oldest son began by feeling like the deepest, most primal wound a woman could endure – that of losing a child.
