I try to set time aside for some major self care each month. With all of the traveling and manual labor I do, things like this keep me sane AND going. I’m also a huge advocate of “practice what you preach”...so when I make suggestions to my clients, friends, and family, chances are I’m taking the advice too.
I received this treatment, along with an amazing massage, from my girl @dawnskishelton
in Scottsdale AZ. I try to see this magical massage therapist whenever I’m back in AZ, as long as both of our crazy schedules permit it!
Cupping has been a big help for me lately. When I feel really “stuck” in my tissue, modalities like this help my body become unglued, so to speak. Not only did this help to release fascial tension, it also helped draw toxicity from my tissue as well. What a treatment!! I had some junk that needed to be released!!!
As I always tell everyone, it is extremely important to hydrate after any kind of bodywork. I was chugging water after this! Hydrating after a treatment not only helps to flush out all of the unwanted “junk” that has been worked out of your body, it also rehydrates the body to keep it happy and functioning optimally! Water also helps to decrease the level of soreness one may experience after an intense treatment.
If you haven’t tried cupping I highly recommend it!

Day13 #하누만아사나 #스플릿
. 🌟 강함과 부드러움, 두가지 모두가 필요하기에 어려운 아사나입니다.😨전사시리즈, 피죤포즈, 서서하는 스플릿 동작등으로 허벅지와 골반을 충분히 풀어 주세요. 처음부터 엉덩이가 바닦과 가깝지 않아도 좋아요👍충분한 시간을 두고 골반을 정방향으로 두고 서서히 지구를 향해서 내려갑니다. 필요하다면 블록을 사용해 허벅지 뒷쪽을 받쳐주거나 손을 차렷한 상태에서 양손아래 받쳐줍니다. 적극적으로 힙과 허벅지 뒷쪽을 열어 주세요.💃🏻내쉬는 숨마다 앞쪽에 다리의 뒷꿈치로 바닦을 꾹~ 눌러내고, 뒷쪽 다리발등, 새끼발날까지 매트를 눌러봅니다. 엉덩이가 무거워 지며 중심이 잡힌다면 양손도 가슴앞에 합장하고 깊게 호흡할께요. 그럼 오늘 하루도 쭉쭉~ 시원하게 뻗어나가며 즐거운 수련하세요😜
is challneging pose since it required strong but softness. Warrior series, pigeon, standing split poses are highly recommended for warm-up. For the first, you don’t need to be perfect split. All you need to do is squared pelvis front. You may bring a block or blanket to support your tightness. Choose whatever you want. With every exhalation, press front heel down and back whole legs down to the floor. It helps to stretch hamstrings and quadriceps. If you feel comfortable, bring your hands in prayer pose in front of the chest.

Yoga helped get me through my first year of work and IBS.
I was living in New York City and starting a career as a journalist. I finished graduate school and the symptoms of IBS began to appear.
I lived in a soup of stress and my body and mind were struggling.
My Friday night yoga class was weekly therapy. It released built up stress from the week. I loved the routine, the community and the focus on spirit and self care.
Stress creates pressures, tensions & contractions in the body. If you don’t release those tensions, like steam from a pressure cooker, it will build up and get worse.
Releasing and reducing stress from the body is a vital part of healing, especially for those with IBS. Finding a regular release you enjoy will make a difference in how you feel. Yoga is not for everyone but it’s not the only option. Find your release.
Don’t over exercise though, it adds to the stress.
Great stretch for your neck to release tension and stress! Give it try! Let me know what you think.

Simple move that helps with back and knee pain
The standing quad stretch focuses on the quadriceps (front-thigh muscles). This muscle is the largest in your lower body and tends to be shorten from all the sitting we do these days. So, when doing this move be extra gentle with this stretch if you’re prone to knee or lower-back pain.
The standing quad stretch is excellent for improving flexibility, but if you suffer from knee or back pain, you should go easy in this stretch. Or you can do a similar stretch while lying on your side (I’ve done this video a few weeks back), bending your top knee, and bringing your heel toward your buttocks. Follow these steps to see the standing quad stretch.
1.Stand tall with your feet hip-width apart, pull your abdominals in, and relax your shoulders.
2.Bend your left leg, bringing your heel toward your butt, and grasp your left foot with your right hand.
3.You can grasp your left foot with your left hand, if the opposite hand is too uncomfortable. You should feel a mild pull gradually spread through the front of your left leg.
4.Hold onto a tree or the wall if you have trouble balancing.
5.Don’t lock the knee of your base leg (the one you’re standing on).
OPTION half kneeling quad stretch
1.In a half kneel position bring your back foot up and try to grab with your hand.
2.Lean forward with your hip to feel a stretch down the front of your back thigh
3.Stretch until feeling mild discomfort—don't go beyond this to the point of pain.
4.Don't allow your bent knee to move or drift outward.
1.If you aren't yet able to reach your ankle to hold it during the stretch, try this: Loop a towel around your ankle and grab both ends. This way you can hold the leg in a bend without needing to reach all the way to the ankle.
2.Be careful not to strain your knee. The goal is not to touch your heel to the buttock, but rather to feel the gradual stretch in the thigh. If you feel strain in your knee do the lying quad stretch instead
Let me know if this is one you work on?

Yoga Nap is back!!! Last one for 2018! .
Come nurture, rest, restore and heal your mind, body and soul.
You have the power to retire within yourself whenever you choose and just enjoy the ease and simplicity of being. .
"Yoga nidra is the yoga of aware sleep. In this lies the secret of self healing. Yoga Nidra is a pratyahara technique in which the distractions of the mind are contained and the mind is relaxed. [...] If you know how to free yourself from tension, you know how to resolve your problems in life. In order to create a peaceful world, we must first learn to relax and harmonise our own body and mind. In order to relax completely, the inner tensions of the body, mind and emotions must be released. Then, the actual state of relaxation dawns. The practice of Yoga Nidra is the scientific method of removing these tensions." - Swami Satyananda Sarawati
