Every day it seems more and more research appears indicating how much yoga helps people in their every day lives. Not just with reducing stress and bringing a calm state of mind but also with enhancing the ability to think and focus. Below is a graphic that tells some of the story.

Voice Your Life™ tools focus on using sound as well as gentle movement to integrate life changes with Higher Brain Living® sessions . A yoga posture may be as simple as raising your arms as high as your shoulders or bowing your head slightly while being aware of the flow of your breath.

Every “body” is unique. Even if you can’t ever put yourself into one of the shapes you see below, you can still use your breath,  sound and movement to receive the benefits!

During a time of great transition how do you preserve your peace of mind?

This period in my life seems to be asking me this question. Here is my answer.

I have meditated every morning since I have been back in Brooklyn. Most days I have practiced pranayama and asana. I practice a variety of techniques to uplift and focus my thoughts and emotions. I have stayed connected and have reconnected with people and groups of people who feel supportive to me and who focus on the positive and finding solutions. To overcome both joint and emotional pain I have been taking supplements and eating foods that I find balance my body and brain chemistry.

I spend a lot of time researching various subjects on the computer and keep myself entertained nightly on a budget with Netflix streaming.

I continue to read to acquire the knowledge needed to make changes in my life in the arenas of spirit and matter, and in matters financial. I ask for help from those who have more experience than me.

I surrender to the “What Is” of my life on a daily basis, offering gratitude in thought and feeling for all that is there to support me.

How is it working?

Emotions are settling down and thoughts arrive more slowly which allows time for processing.

This is the time of the Turtle in my life: slow, un-rushed with a lot of pauses and very little looking backwards, lest I lose my way forward.
