The Value of a Sweet and Spicy Core

I started to think about my offhanded video title “Sweet and Spicy Core” and what a confusing, nonsensical image that might be. Speaking linguistically, we throw the word “core” around to take on a broad range of meanings. The definition of “core” includes absolute, deep rooted, or in a complete or extreme way. Most often, the word core is added to make a statement stronger. In my definition, I …

Eight Limbs of Yoga In The Honey Jar

Do you want to know what meditation is?  If you practice yoga, did you know that yoga postures and meditation are inextricably linked? Meditation is the highest form of yoga.  There are common misconceptions around the terms meditation and mindfulness, and dare I say liberation.  This is the definition of meditation from the point of the the Eight Limbs of Yoga in the Yoga Sutras, a classic yogic text.  …

New Year Intention Is An Inside Embodied Journey

A day of resolution starts with purification. Awareness to connect to what is healthy and disconnect from what is not. How much of the path is already laid out and what can be manipulated with the mind? Desire leads to that which is changeable. Recognize unnecessary suffering. Draw old patterns out into the air and ignite them with intention. Empowerment to become. That is the beginning of the New …

Yoga Is Interval Training For the Body And Mind

Life requires interval training. Physically, interval training allows you to push yourself beyond your limits and increase endurance by combining blasts of energy with a recovery phase. Intensity is increased without burn out.  In yoga, we might practice interval training by releasing all the muscles in a child’s pose after a series of dynamic standing postures. Interval training works on the principle of adaptation – the body’s ability to …

Yoga Improves Body Language & Make You Feel Like Wonder Woman

Body language has the ability to empower or defeat.  Where I don’t follow the belief that a cluttered desk is equivalent to a cluttered mind, I firmly support that body language, or non-verbal communication, can be more revealing than words.  Even before a hand shake or hug, much can be assumed about a person by the position of their head, shoulders, arms and their gaze. Clairsentience is the ability …
