REDISCOVER YOUR INNER-NATURE

Breathing Exercise:  “The Heart Dance”

The heart is the body’s energy engine.  Having it work optimally can re-invigorate the entire energy system.  

Here we'd like to share a powerful technique that we've found re-enlivens our hearts and restores us back to full power:

Start by being PRESENT.  Be in the now and sit with what is going on within you. Focus attention on breathing in towards the heart. Filling up the heart area with air on every deep inhale. Exhale slowly making the sound “err”.  The more ‘inner-noise’ there is, the longer this will take to perfect, but the better results you  will receive.


Sometimes there seems to be a fundamental disconnect between how we’re designed to move and how we actually do

Exercise should never be an effort. We shouldn’t need to force ourselves, or need anyone else to motivate us. It should come naturally.  

Movement and the desire to perform is intricately linked to our love and lust for life and all things real. It springs naturally from us when we rediscover our true nature...

Working-In exercise's turn our attention inward.  They're important because most of the time we’ll find ourselves looking outwards, at our phones, moving screens, or at other people or situations, giving so much credence to external technology and so little attention to our internal technology. 

Buried beneath all the schedules, planning, reasoning and actions we can discover that our inner nature and purpose can be one, we can regain a child-like wonder and lust for life and enliven our senses with the acute experience of movement and energy.  Often there can be a lot of "inner-noise" to get through first - "THE HEART DANCE" is an easy and powerful tool to help quieten it all down...

HOW WAS YOUR WORK-IN?

HOW WAS YOUR WORK-IN?

Breathing Exercise: Kapalabhati or “Skull Shining Breath”

Working out expends energy from the body and needs to be replenished via what we like to call "Working In". 

There are many methods of "Working In" but the simplest that we like to share is this powerful breathing technique that a wise old Yogi once taught us: 

Begin: Through the nose take a leisurely inhale, then exhale powerfully through pursed lips, from the belly.  Perform about 5 times as a beginner, then as you start to feel the effects, you can get the same benefits from doing it fewer times. After only a little practice, you can gain enormous benefit from just a single breathe. 


There is not a day that passes when we're not confronted by stress. People want to get healthy and look good but know that if you’re stressed, it’s not going to work. Exercise is a stress on the body and if your levels are already high, exercise is going to be detrimental and counter-productive. If you’re thinking about getting into exercise, stress will prevent you.

There is no way to reach your potential without dealing with stress and for something that we all experience much of the time, ‘stress’ is a very misunderstood phenomenon. Almost every moment we’re awake is a stress! In Yin and Yang terms, we’re Yang most of the time.  Most of our time is Energy OUT.  Almost everything in today’s stimulus-packed world is geared-up to get you to expend. If you spend it all, you’ve got nothing saved up.  The key is balance.
