Day 10 of the amazing #YogisKeepItReal challenge: handstand
Finding places to do inversions has been interesting. The Ceilings in my RV are no where high enough and everything is too cramped, hence why majority of my yoga is outside. Thank goodness for my awesome @tryhardtyler95 For letting me barrow his room!!! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜˜Still working on my balance, so #paulthewall was there to support me! But I did it! So proud of myself!! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜Ž .

After our Traveling Women's Retreat this Summer, @strawberyjess and I decided to continue this seasonally at locations around the world that we've always wanted to visit. We are starting more "local", but have plans to grow this even further! We have a handful of spaces left for our October in Leavenworth Washington and we would love to have you here! Perfect girls weekend getaway. Bring your mama! Bring your best friend! Bring someone you would like to become closer with. Private message me to reserve your spot! #yogaretreat #yogaforanxiety

Saluting the sun in the drizzle this morning. Sun salutes are my favourite way to start the day! After a strong coffee of course!
Feeling super stiff this morning but a few rounds of this has left me feeling good! Off to the gym now to beast my upper body- it's all about balance and all that! โš–๏ธ

Yoga for Anxiety full version available on YouTube type yoga with amit or go to www.youtube.com/c/amitnamdev / www.ashtayogaindia.com #youtube #yoga #yogawithamit #yogaforanxiety

I have this distinct memory from the middle of last year. I was talking about anxiety with someone I was working with, who also happens to be a close friend. She was sharing her experience with it and asked if I had ever felt it.

I said no and 100% believed that to be the truth.
Looking back, my anxiety at that point was at peak level.

Iโ€™ve always considered myself to be a pretty calm and cool sort of person. And I amโ€ฆ on the outside. But Iโ€™ve come to realise only recently how much I internalise. I literally stress inwardly and never realised that anxiety isn't something you do, rather something you feel.

The things that started to unravel anxiety for me were... My naturopath gave me this herbal mixture ( I fondly call sludge) for my nervous system and I could literally feel it calming me down.

Iโ€™ve been making time to write and meditate daily and I now notice on the days I donโ€™t, that I feel tight and stress-y in my chest.

A long conversation with my counsellor brought up the fact that I never really show anger, instead I bury that feeling inside, which made me start to questionโ€ฆ what else am I burying?

A rebirthing session (conscious breathing that brings up all your emotional crap that you havenโ€™t dealt with) the other week was actually physically painful as my body released 30+ years of stuff Iโ€™ve been holding. Afterwards I sobbed for the sadness of it all. The next day I woke up pissed off with life and everyone in it. (yep it felt like PMS on steroids). Though I was hesitant at first, (the needles freaked me out) acupuncture has literally been melting my anxiety away. Iโ€™m so zen afterwards I can barely form sentences.

Iโ€™ve noticed that Eamon can be quite anxious about things, especially when it comes to school or social situations with people he doesnโ€™t know well. Unlike me, he is excellent at voicing how he is feeling. Iโ€™m doing my very best to not teach him to silence that voice.

It wasn't until I came down from my super anxious state that I could actually even feel and recognise anxiety in my body. I had to give up coffee (SOB!) and get honest with myself about the fact that it just creates more anxiety. Continued in comments...

I'm so delighted to bring this offering to Red Deer. Thank you to my dear friend @love_yoga_grace for inviting me to her studio #yogaforanxiety #mentalhealth #yoga #reddeer

ANXIETY? Yup.

So many of us struggle with anxiety and anxiety disorders - many of my students have asked for a more in-depth look into using yoga as a strategy for anxiety management. I went to the best Central Alberta has to offer; and was honoured that Tiffany Rose of LacOMbe Yoga would come and share with us her extensive knowledge on this very subject.

Here is how she describes the class: "Use Yoga as a tool kit to manage and potentially overcome the symptoms associated with anxiety and anxiety disorders. Students will be practicing a challenging flow with it's roots in Power Yoga, but with modification and room for most experience levels. breathing techniques, as well as meditation tools will be incorporated as students experience which offerings work best for them." This 6 week series will begin Monday, September 11, and will be held weekly from 6:00 to 7:00. $90.00 for 6 sessions. Register here: http://kellytibbets.com/events/yoga-for-anxiety/

Every single morning or evening I practice Ashtanga or Vinyasa yoga with plenty of inversion practice to relieve any stress or anxiety ๐Ÿ‘†
.
More than 90% of people come to yoga for flexibility, stress relief, health & physical fitness. But, for most people, their primary reason for doing yoga will change. Two-thirds of yoga students and 85% of yoga teachers have a change of heart regarding why they do yoga โ€” most often changing to spirituality or self-actualisation, a sense of fulfilling their potential. Yoga offers self-reflection, the practice of kindness and self-compassion & continued growth and self-awareness.

Yoga reduces depression & anxiety but it also changes the brain. A study published in the Frontiers in Human Neuroscience uses MRI scans of the brain to show that yoga protects the brain from the decline in gray matter brain volume as we age. People with more yoga experience had brain volumes typical for much younger people. In other words, yoga could protect your brain from shrinking as you get older!! The protection of gray matter brain volume is found mostly in the left hemisphere, the side of your brain associated with positive emotions and the relaxation response. Emotions like joy and happiness have exclusively more activity in the left hemisphere of the brain on positive emission tomography (PET) brain scans. The left hemisphere is also linked to the parasympathetic nervous system, the โ€œrest and digestโ€ network responsible for relaxation ๐Ÿ’›
.
But the truth is that the practice of yoga is not about changing the brain, body, headstands, or even about gaining greater happiness and joy. Yoga aims toward transcendence of all those things, opens up the possibility of connecting to what we already have โ€” to who we already are ๐Ÿ˜‡โœŒ

What I believe is...if we lower stress with healing yoga and consistent exercise, we lower the fat storing hormones in our bodies and can more easily lose weight. Not to mention releasing anxiety and tension.
.
If we eat plants we lower the risk of, prevent, and even reverse diseases.
.
If we supplement CORRECTLY we can get some amazing results and restore our body's depleted nutrient supply. .
And if we feed our emotional body with personal development consistently, we will always be able to continue pushing forward to meet whatever goals we set for ourselves. .
Many of you know I'm getting back into teaching yoga locally and I really want to embody this mind body wellness and really take care of myself..
.
I decided to take the plunge and do my online yoga/Pilates/cardio workout program.
.
I feel to be an effective teacher and online health and wellness coach ---> I need to live what I'm preaching.
.
I don't want to focus on calories or doing the most 'in' workout anymore.
.
I don't even want to worry SO much about the weightloss. I get so wrapped up in everyone else's results and it totally takes away from my focus of what I need to do to stay healthy.
.
Working on myself from a spiritual holistic point of view has always led me to release Fat, Anxiety, AND just live peacefully. .
Like for real I don't we all just want to live more peacefully?
.
Just stop worrying so much. You're right where you're supposed to be!

Day 1 of #showusyogis challenge!
Pretty excited to start this new challenge but honestly more excited to dive into myself with this challenge, starting with today! I have ALWAYS struggled with "feeling sexy." With what I have experienced in my life, being sexy was a negative thing, and would result in dark situations.... so I have steered clear of that feeling for the majority of my life. It is something that I have been trying to work on, just basic self confidence, and has definitely been one of my bigger challenges: to love myself. Today was no different. I started my yoga flow feeling nice and loose and energized, ready for my challenges, but when I got to this one, I basically froze, went blank. This was really hard for me, but I think I came through strong! Feeling sexy with a camel pose variation. .

Sometimes, the universe places something inside your gaze, noticing just as you start to focus on it. Then, blurring the image, whispers, "wait just a little bit longer." What is in focus now is what we can see, live. Here, we find the present moment. In trying to re-focus our own lens, we find our monkey mind, vrtti, anxiety, stress. I choose to be here, now, universe. ๐ŸŒŒ

It's a common misconception that in order to lose weight we need to hardcore restrict calories... Listen...to lose weight..you need to eat so much more than you think!

I started off learning just how much I need to eat by using a color coded portion control meal plan and from there have moved to a plant based version of it.

Eat better! Not less!
And remember to breathe..hard to let go of fat when we are so busy holding on to stress๐Ÿ˜ฌ

ใ€ฐ i bend so I don't break ใ€ฐ what does your self care practice look like?

Yoga untuk Mengatasi Rasa Cemas

Ketika rasa cemas mulai menjangkiti pikiran dan perasaan, untuk mengatasinya terkadang susah. Namun dengan yoga, setiap gerakan dan teknik pernafasan dapat membantu meringankan rasa cemas. Ini adalah salah satu dari banyak manfaat yoga. Salah satu instruktur yoga, Beth Coke mengatakan bahwa ada satu gerakan yang dapat mengurangi rasa cemas dengan cepat yaitu memijat ketiak saat low lunge. Untuk melakukan gerakan ini, bawa kaki kanan atau kiri ke posisi downward dog split dan bawa kaki di antara tangan. Dekatkan lutut dengan ketika dan perlahan mulai menggerakkan ketiak secara memutar pada lutut. Walaupun terdengar aneh, tapi cara ini berhasil! Berikut adalah langkah-langkah gerakan yang dapat meringankan rasa cemas.

1. Dimulai dengan downward facing dog. (Gambar 1)
2. Angkat satu kaki ke atas ke posisi downward dog split, buka pinggul dan tekuk lutut. (Gambar 2)
3. Bawa kaki di antara tangan dan turunkan lutut ke bawah. (Gambar 3)
4. Dekatkan ketiak dengan lutut dan buat gerakan memutar. (Gambar 4)

Yoga challenge Day 9: Pigeon, this one feels so elegant!
Being an empath is something I have grown to love. Some days can be rough, and you wouldn't believe what some places do to me! But I have always neglected to feel and listen to my own energy, my own feelings. Today I woke up SOO stiff and in a lot of pain. At work I tried to stretch whenever I could to try and get SOMETHING to loosen up. Nothing was working and I was starting to think I had a serious problem going on. But once I stepped out of my car when I got back to my RV, everything had loosened up DRAMATICALLY! Don't get me wrong, I still had sore spots and could feel where my muscle had been tight and knotted all day, but I was able to lift my arms above my head and squat down with no problem. This threw me for a loop, so I stopped and thought about it. I'm not really sure if I'm doing it to myself, psyching myself out for dealing with work, or if the energy from of being at work, that I am subconsciously telling myself I HAVE GOT to get this new job! Either way, changes have to be made because this crippling pain is not going to fly with me! Still can't believe this awesome challenge is almost over! ๐Ÿ’ซ๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿฆ„๐ŸŒˆ

I did yoga today.
And meditated.
Even though I cried after one and was grumpy through the other.
But I did both those things today.
Even though 15 minutes afterward I was in the middle of a full blown freak out where I was crying and couldn't breathe.
Life is beautiful and wonderful and life sucks and is so hard.
But I showed up for myself today in those two small things I did.
Wherever you are mentally today and no matter what you are going through in your life, show up for yourself somehow. Take a nap, eat a cookie, get on your mat or have a bubble bath. It will be hard, and you might not see the point. But show up for yourself anyway. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Out of all the little tips I can give to help lift your spirit, relieve stress & anxiety, getting out in nature e v e r y โ€ข s i n g l e โ€ข day just about does it for me ๐Ÿ™Œ
.
A quick 20-60 minute walk in a park, the countryside or around a lake always lifts my mood. The sun has been shining it's little cute face off this week so I've spent plenty of time walking, practicing yoga, being playful with my practice & meditating outside in the shade ๐Ÿ˜
.
Vitamin D will work absolute wonders for your mood. It's necessary for serotonin production, something us Brits severely lack. Serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine, 5-HT) is a chemical found in the human body which carries signals along and between nerves - a neurotransmitter. It's responsible for maintaining mood balance, and unfortunately if there's a deficit it can lead to depression ๐Ÿ˜ž Serotonin can affect mood and social behavior, appetite and digestion, sleep, memory, sexual desire and function. So whatever you do this week make sure you soak up the sun and reconnect with nature ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒž
