As adults, sometimes we need to give our grown ass selves a time out. See, what took me a long time to understand was that this fight or flight response doesn’t just happen when presented with a conflict situation.
Do you ever take notice of your breath throughout the day? For those of us who struggle with anxiety and regulating our fight or flight response – this is life changing!
The idea of meditating can seem intimidating for many of us. Understandable when the word meditation is generally associated with having a tabula rasa empty mind for hours on end.
Meditation is much more than simply having an empty mind. It is a practice in which the individual focuses their energy, mind, and spirit in order to become intensely present in the Now. It sounds more daunting than it actually is!
Pranayama is a Sanskrit word meaning extension of the prana, or the practice of breath control. This is an essential yogic practice that originates from ancient India.
The prana, or breath, carries a person’s vital life force.
The practice of Pranayama releases and channels the body’s stores of internal pranic energy. Regular practice contributes to health of the body and mind.
