Do you want to relax and unwind in the beautiful surroundings of nature in one of the highest vibrational spots in the world? Are you mentally stressed out, physically drained, ‘burnt out’ and not sure how to let go of it all? Want to connect with like minded people and still have the ‘me’ time that you so long for?

I was introduced to meditation when I started yoga classes at the tender age of 18 (yes, just a young punk now that I look back lol). The whole process of the physical movement of yoga postures along with the moments of inward silence really resonated with me and always left me feeling refreshed and completely re-engergized. Even at such a young age, I think a part of me knew that I had managed to stumble on a gold mine of a technique that could potentially unleash my super powers. Over the years, I have come to learn about the never ending list of physical, mental, emotional (and did I mention anti-aging?) benefits that comes a lot with that feel good burst of energy.
This initial experience with meditation was probably the trigger that led me to become the Holistic Therapist and Trainer that I am today. And for that I am ever so grateful.
Do this quick exercise for three minutes a day and with in a few weeks time you will find your memory improving, better clarity of thought, focus and balanced hormones and brain chemicals. Medical professionals are confirming that this is even helping mental disabilities and diseases such as ADHD, Autism, and even Alzheimer’s. WOW.
This technique which has recently been termed “SuperBrain Yoga”, has been been used and practiced for thousands of years. And once again, it took some time to for Neurologists, Scientists and Medical practitioners from around the world to catch on. But as they say, better late than never.
I believe that awareness is always the vehicle for great change. It allows for ignorance and misunderstanding to transform into knowledge and new found wisdom. Raising funds for research, for cures, to “fight the problem” for decades now and still we haven’t got any where? Or have we?
After years of studying the mind and journeying through the mind-body connection, I would like to propose a different way of approaching disease and disorder.
It’s incredible how my life has shifted before I had my children…and after. There are definitely plenty of adjustment periods that were not as easy to transition into along with the beautiful growth and evolution that comes out of any big changes in one’s life. Being quite an individual who enjoyed spending plenty time alone and doing whatever she wanted, whenever she wanted, having three children in short amount time definitely put a stop to that. Even though the quiet moments to myself are few and far between these days, strangely enough if I do manage to escape for a little while I find that I quickly miss the noise of cheerful chaos and pitter patter of little feet.
Have you ever had a meltdown moment at the wrong place, wrong time and had no idea had to get yourself out of it?? And the more the you thought about “OMG, I’m having a breakdown” that very thought created a snowball effect and the whole thing just got that much worse?
Have you ever heard the saying that laughter is the best medicine? Well it seems that the medical community have confirmed that our ancestors were right. A good laugh everyday has a plenitude of positive effects on both the body and mind. I believe that everyone enjoys a good laugh, I know I do (comedies are always my first pick when choosing a movie to watch at the movie theater). Since I’ve my had my three wonderful children, they make it really easy to laugh… a lot.
I believe that I indirectly understood the power of the mind even as a small girl. From a very young age, I was able to observe people and notice that societies, and therefore their cultures, were very much shaped around the thoughts and feelings of their inhabitants. Why were people pessimistic, conservative yet very loving in one area of the world while on the other side people were open-minded, friendly yet full of fear?
It is a known fact that emotions play a huge role in our human experience. Did you know that happiness, a built in motivator that we strive and struggle for most of our lives, is actually as simple as a chemical reaction taking place in the brain? Interestingly enough, the foods that we choose to eat directly impact our moods and state of being through the nutrients they contain (or lack thereof). I have always had a strong connection more “5 Foods That Make You Feel Happy!”…
