Do you practice yoga? We’d love to hear your tips for beginners!

I’m not sure what took me so long to realize it, but I’m not nearly as bendy as I was a few years ago.  This has me thinking about adding yoga to my daily routine.

Beyond increasing flexibility and building strength, regular yoga practice can be the foundation of a more healthy lifestyle. It can:

  • improve your posture and balance
  • reduce blood pressure
  • help you sleep better
  • relieve stress
  • boost your mood

Other great things about yoga?

  • you don’t need any fancy equipment to get started
  • all body types and ages are welcome – big, small, different abilities – it’s always possible to modify a pose
  • there are a zillion videos available online FREE

Here are some resources to get us started slowly. Most of these take fewer than 20 minutes – just enough to see if yoga is something you want to pursue.

Before you know it, we’ll be doing some insane yoga poses. (Well, maybe not, but we will be more flexible, healthier, and happier.)

People have been doing yoga for thousands of years, but you should consult your healthcare professionals before beginning any new-to-you exercise programs.

Namaste.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Love the moment, and the energy of that moment will spread beyond all boundaries.

National Breast Cancer Awareness month was founded in 1985. The famous pink ribbon came along in 1993 when the Estee Lauder Company established The Breast Cancer Research Fund. Ever since, pink ribbons and October have served as reminders that all women need to be screened for breast cancer.

Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.

As women, we have a tendency to not take care of ourselves. To put the needs (and even the tiny wants) of others before our own.

In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary.

Some women may think they won’t get breast cancer because it doesn’t run in their family.

Quiet the mind and the soul will speak.

Others may feel like there’s just no time to get to the doctor for a screening.

callily17_salespiece_fc__52177-1458829326-1280-1280
Happiness held is the seed; happiness shared is the flower.

It’s important that every woman get screened for breast cancer. You’re important. You owe to yourself and to all of the people who love and rely on you to take care of your body.

Please get screened and talk with your provider about any family history and the appropriate schedule of screenings for you.
