“Resilience & Health for the Autumn Season”

Really looking forward to re-learning to use my brain and refresh my mind to flush out the stangnancy from this immobilized summer. Like everyone else, so many plans of meetupas and meetings cancelled but just glad to be here breathing and connecting in new ways.

I am surrounded by man and women young and old with various discomforts, some, in pain. There’s a young man in his twenties complaining of unexplained wrist and ankle pains; remoto worker with stiff neck, shoulders and migraine; a teenager with eye fatigue and he too, a headache at the end of a long day, a young lady complaining of sudden weight gain; a woman suffering from insomnia … then shooting pain down lower back and hips… never experienced. It seems like sheltering at home has brought on different set of health issues. Not acute enough to run into the hospital (which many avoids), but discomforts persists and compromises their energy and quality of life.

This is the time when old ways of work-out and diet is no longer helpful but perhaps maybe even harmful. It’s time for self-reflection through mindfulness practices and taking stock of all the turmoil around us and …within us … then, making a change. Mindfulness followed by Action.

I was indirectly introduced to Arurvedic teaching during my 200 hrs. TT 10 years ago and always wanted to take a course but this particular teacher’s classes were so FAR & EARLY on weekdays, I just could not drive for miles to get there BUT wow … irony during challenging times … while we are sick and tired of zoom (sorry – nothing beats in-person in same space learning), it’s also a life-saver and a tool for new connections and learning.

Now, finally able to take his class both yoga and aryuveda course. It’s tough crazy times but it’s also time for new learning and growing. Not fall into the trap of stagnancy and regression.

My intention for this Fall: Let us welcome the Harvest season by re-setting our intention to Never stop learning and growing:)

It’s the only way to stay sane during these unpredictable times where we are constantly tested in various anxiety range of fright, flight, freeze. Sometimes our health takes the back-seat but no longer.

Hunker down, anchor while remaining flexible to meet the needs of given moment.

Yoga brings Joy!
Joy to your body, heart, soul and allows your mind to settle all the debris to the bottom of the lake, ripples gently subsides so that like that shining water, your lake in your mind is still and crystal clear. Only then, you can find your truth... when your mind clears and all distractions are gone, leaving you - stillness and clarity. Peace.
Dog is doing yoga all the time and brings you laughs!
Anger is borne out of fear; how do we find that fearless path of inner peace?
Why Bark when you can Wag to express your JOY Joy joy !!!???
