How do you want to Feel? 

How do you want to Feel? 

It was hours after the question was posed to me. I walked out of a 6pm Power Vinyasa class. 93 degrees. Mat to mat…When I walked out I noticed how I felt. Clear, calm, happy, light, full (despite feeling quite hungry), enough, strong, and myself. I felt how I always want to feel. That’s it. I have my answer. I know yoga is profound, but man, this night it showed up for me big time.

Winter Solstice

Winter Solstice

Saturday, December 21 marks the winter solstice – the day the sun is at its lowest daily maximum elevation in the sky,and the shortest day of the year. For many cultures and in many ancient traditions, this time of year is perfect to perform, implement and practice new rituals, as it signifies the death of one season and the birth of another. Some sources say the winter solstice holds powerful energy for regeneration, renewal, and self-reflection.

Purify

Purify

Pratyhara–the heightening and withdrawing from our senses–is a catalyst to deep restoration and creates a stronger connection between our minds and bodies. When we remove distraction and physically restrict one of our sensory organs from doing its job, it is forced to rest. And given the connection the organ has to our brains, a portion of our brain rests. And when we rest, or restore, our minds slow down, our bodies relax and we experience more peace. Perhaps a little mental trickery, cutting off one of our senses to force it to restore, but hey, it works.
