Live Light

Everything is already okay. Pause. Breathe and repeat to yourself “Everything is already awesome”. (Add a smile and you’ll feel instantly better.)

Yoga Practice

The practice of yoga isn’t always perfect or pretty. Sometimes it’s slow and methodical or gentle and bandaged. Exploration changes as injuries pop up. Be present and mindful how your movement changes.

Make it a Mindful Monday

20130909-172523.jpg

Start your week in a mindful manner. Our thoughts can control our world, and by making mindful choices we can live with ease.

Being mindful is a conscious way of moving through life. When we are aware of our thoughts and the power they have we realize how much control we have over changing our own world.

Today as I was walking down the street in NYC I noticed I was clenching my jaw. I stopped for a moment to relax my jaw and take a deep breath. At that moment I began to smile, and I looked up to see another woman smile back at me. This simple and short blip in time brought me to the present moment and a sense of lightness. It can be this simple, it is just a matter of noticing when you are not present.

Live Light Practice:

Find a comfortable seat for two minutes. This seat can be in your living room or on the subway.

Close your eyes and focus on your inhales and exhales. Notice what thoughts come up. Where does your attention want to go? Can you bring your awareness to only your breathing for two minutes?

Once complete notice how different your mind, body, and breathing may feel.

Shanti,

Now is the Time

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With a new puppy at home I am reminded of the joy and curiosity that pets show us. In the picture above you see, Cosmo, our 9 week old Shiba who shows me that there is only right now. It is a pleasure to be reminded to look at life with open eyes and lots of love. In each moment there is only what is happening right now.

Live Light Practice:

Start and end your day in the moment by focusing on your inhales and exhales for 2 minutes. Set and alarm and let your mind and body be in the now.
