When you know how something works, you can fix it. Whether its plumbing or medicine. Some people pride themselves on knowing how to play video games, doing hair, working out, acquiring degrees while others on making money. The key is knowing how anything works. Science knows that emotional stress is linked to Type 2 Diabetes. Worried about bills, health, employment, and even what other people think; are you angry, worried, and stress - stop it. Turn off the television, texting, and read. No matter how healthy we eat or exercise if we're stressed--- diabetes is looming on the horizon. Stress affects our gut, which compromises our health. Chronic stress alters the bacteria or microbiome in our stomach, which makes us fertile for diabetes. Studies have found that our stress quotient(Sq) may even determine who may develop. Let's get a handle on our stress response so as not to create Diabetes Type 2. Choose medication or meditation, dialysis, or yoga. Of all your knowledge, know-how your body works. Make a promise to yourself, that stress less, and relax more @aseyoga #whereeveryheartbeatcounts

How do we fulfill our purpose? Choosing the right attitude. One attitude is of a victim, defeatist, ready to accept failure. The victim is highly sensitive and perceives even the slightest advice as an attack. People walk on eggshells in communicating with them. Easily offended, that person blames his stance in life on what others have not done for them. The second attitude is past-addicted, whether its grammar school, high school, or college. They have not grown up. While they've gotten older, their conversation is the past. Living regressively, they afraid to step out of their time-warp. Finally, the mastery attitude is someone who dares to fulfill their purpose, utilizes their willpower, and rise above the unpleasant circumstances in their life thinking of the Divine. The first two attitudes we're voluntary slaves or indentured servants. However, with the mastery attitude, we in charge of our life. We refrain from complaining about what we don't have because we realize everything we need is within us. A mastery attitude is one of accomplishment, not excuses. The good news is that our attitude is not permanent but transitory. We can change them. With the right attitude, all things are possible-Experience Àse Yoga, #whevereverybreathcounts. aseyogastudiotearoom.com

They say, what does not kill us, makes us stronger. Something should be happening inside of all us strengthening our will to live. This strength is not brute force or rock-like.Lao Tzu says to become water-like, not rocklike because water is strong yet vulnerable Don't sit around waiting for the bing, the bell to live.. Take this opportunity to love a little deeper, to appreciate a little more, and to mature. Refrain from listening to anyone that weakens you. And understand with strength comes vulnerability. Feel your strength with every breath. If you allow yourself, you also feel your power. Blessed are the solitary. Be wise, Be open, Be strong.

Signs have guided us since the beginning of time. Ptah-Hotep, known for the oldest book in the world, writes: Beware an act of avarice: "It is bad and incurable disease." The Bible, Quran, and all the scriptures speak of signs. John 4:48: Jesus said, "Unless you see signs and wonders you will not believe." As well, the Qur'an 45: 3 reveals, "Indeed, within the heavens and the earth are signs (ayat) for the believers." According to Gita, "In such auspicious conditions, arranged by the Lord for His eternal devotee, lay the signs of assured victory." We live by nature's signs. And only through the awakening of our higher consciousness do we see the signs. And so, lay-offs, rejections, divorce, discomfort, chronic headaches, changing our minds, accidents, diseases are signs for us to change. Perhaps it's our failure to understand signs that are causing us the most trouble. Signs precede our experiences. None of this is spooky, scary, or even religious. It's spiritual. Our minds are so full of illusions from television, and social media that we've lost the ability to read signs. Everything has to be funny or else we're afraid. And yet, signs protect us, or tell us to do certain things like slow down, be grateful, tune inward, declutter, create, and even transform our lives. Yoga brings out that natural ability for insight, for understanding signs. With our yoga practice, we don't just look at the material world, but we experience the spirtual. We heed the sign to wake-up, to heal. Experience Àse Yoga, #whereeverybreathcounts. Like us on Facebook. Follow us on Instagram. @aseyoga

Destiny is not holding us back; it's our lack of Self-knowledge. Gayan says, "The Present is the reflection of the past, and the future is the -re-echo of the present." Being a slave or master rest in our hands. We are a work in progress unless we decide this is it. However, before you do that, realize that destiny is what we make it. We limit ourselves in thinking that we are our bodies, neglecting the soul and spirit. Open to spirit, and claim your inheritance of amazing and unlimited powers. No longer bring the past into the present. We are not where we want to be because of the limitations we live in. Consider breaking out of the box of limitations. Let go fo the struggling.

Our breath is our first point of contact with the world. Unfortunately, we may not be making a good impression. For one, some of us are hyperventilating and don't even know it. Hyperventilating, which is breathing very fast, more than 14 times a minute, affects the balance between breathing in oxygen and breathing out carbon dioxide. When we do that, we activate the stress response. Let go of the shallow, chest breathing, which reduces the level of carbon dioxide in our body. Make a good impression on the world: Turn on your relaxation response: Close your eyes. Sit in a comfortable position. Breathe through your nose. Notice your breathing. Notice the entire in-breath and out-breath. With your in-breath, the abdomen expands, the chest and shoulder relax. With your out-breath, your belly contracts towards the spine. Let your breath be long, slow, and deep. Focus on your breath for five minutes. Experience Àse Yoga #whereeverybreathcounts. aseyogastudiotearoom.com. Like us on Facebook.

Be kind to your spine. Like a musical scale, the spine carries a scale that tunes the root, sacral, solar, heart, throat, third, eye, and crown. Abundant energy lies in the spine. So don't slump-Stand-up. Awaken that energy so that the impossible becomes possible. Tune the root, the Mooladhara, the Sefekht energy with the sound "LAM." Stand on your own two feet, feel grounded. Awaken your root energy, located at the base of your spine. Feel secure and safe; strong and confident. Stand with your feet together or hip width apart. Straighten the muscles down the front of the thighs to balance your ankles on the feet. Balance the muscles at the top and bottom of your feet. Lift your spine, and hold it upright. Draw your rib cage downward. Release your gluteus downward. Draw the shoulders downward. Inhale. Draw the shoulder blades toward the spine, opening up your heart. Lift your arms, straighten your elbows. Bend back gently. Continue the Journey of the Sun, Ra... @aseyoga #whereeverybreathcounts

You've heard "Patience is a virtue." Indeed it is. And yet, we're hell-bent on being impatient and hyperactive. So much that nowadays, impatience is a mental disease because it's harmful. That's why thousands of people take an impatience pill to slow down their impulses. We feel an impulse to go outside, travel fast, eat instant food, drink instant coffee, and even love impatiently. We patiently gain weight, but impatiently want to lose it. We jump from one idea to the next. Even healing, we want right now. Waiting is unacceptable. Hold up. Impatience is killing us. Our refusal to be patient is causing us to fail, not succeed. Impatience means we don't care. Success comes with infinite patience. However, anything we want to achieve in life requires patient perseverance. Could it be that we don't know what we want? And that we've become a slave to our impatience. Patience is power. The key to achieving what we want in life is the ability to sustain that power. Nature is patient. Be in tune with nature.

Where do you keep your most precious jewels? Inside not outside. It's no surprise then that our jewels such as our heart, brain, kidneys, liver, and lungs are inside.

Do you fear growing older or changing? You could be damaging your liver, one of the hardest working organs in the body. We harm our liver with excessive stress or emotions.

Optimize your immune system through yoga, exercise, and sleep (Y.E.S.). Y.E.S. all those fancy, and expensive supplements we take are no substitute for these three. Research shows a consistent yoga practice lower stress hormones that compromise the immune system. Stress damages our immunity. And so, yoga conditions the lungs and respiratory tract by stimulating the lymphatic system to eliminate toxins from the body. Exercise is another way to improve the efficiency of our immune system, but not too much, just the right amount. The recommended amount is 30-60 minutes. Exercise flush bacteria out of the lungs and airways. And decreases our chance of getting a cold, flu, or other illness. Specifically, exercise alters our antibodies and white blood cells (WBC), which are the body's immune system cells that fight disease. Finally, evidence exists that our bodies need sleep to fight infectious diseases, and improve T-cells, immune cells. Could we be weakening our natural immune fighting powers by not getting the recommended 7-9 hours of sleep? Our lifestyle is making us susceptible to diseases that our bodies are naturally designed to combat. So what are we going to be doing about when we get the green light to resume our way of life?

Is there something right now that you want, but can't seem to attain? You watch television, and you see others attaining, but still, you come up empty-handed with unfulfilled purpose. You've listened to countless motivational speakers and even have a vision board. But the board hasn't produce the vision. Money seeking occupy most of our minds because we're convince that it will make us happy. We want to be one of the 18.6 million millionaires and 540 billionaires. Even though, the average net worth is $97,300 in the United States. On the health side, nearly half of all Americans suffer from at least one chronic disease, and the number is growing. Almost half of adults will experience a mental illness during their lifetime in the United States. So how do we attain prosperity, physical, and psychological wellness within an increasingly chronically ill and mentally challenged enviorment? Whatever we focus on, we manifest. So if, we're concentrating on the television, we've become the television. Our obstacle is not from the lack of vision, but an inability to concentrate. Where's our focus? Misery or happiness, peace or chaos, past or present, drugs or reality, materialism or spirituality, prayer or playing, God or the government. Our mind is scattered as we continual change from doing this to doing that. Reportedly, the average worker will hold ten different jobs before age forty, and this number is projected to grow. Fortunate is the person who knows their path. Learn to strengthen your mind through the science of concentration. Concentration skills are the key to the attainment of life, prosperity, and health.

Have you heard of Ikigai? " "Iki" is to live, and "gai" is a reason. In Japanese, "Ikigai" means "a reason for being." What is your "reason for being?" You don't know? As such, we have no direction despite going to school, acquiring several degrees, and reveling in our prestige. What if it's cooking, building, designing, music, writing, and even serving others? What if it doesn't entail going to college but finding a teacher? We look down on people in pursuit of something we consider inferior to our notion of success. In truth, they are practicing " Ikigai." Others are sailing on the sea without a rudder because they lack Ikigai. If all of us pursue the same reason, then we're no more than a robot. Our reasons for life is the impetus for all the great discoveries, art, ideas, and even cures that arise. At this time, discover your "Ikigai." When you do, you'll never retire. You will find the value in your life. The benefits of "Ikigai" or a "reason for being" is wellness and longevity. My "Ikiga" is to create the healthiest, tastiest, nutritionist, energizing, and soulful food to nourish your spirit. May you be well. May live long. May you experience "Ikigai."

Are you having an affair? An affair is a romantic relationship with someone other than your spouse or partner. And yet, affairs are not relegated to other people's spouses. They can be with our emotional issues, disabilities, and even physical issues. Affairs arise with our thoughts, our past, and disappointments. Are we cheating and being unfaithful to ourselves? What lies are we telling ourselves to maintain our secret, unhealthy relationship with suffering? Affairs tend never to end. We go from one affair to another. Let go of your affair. Be open.

With the nonstop medical advice to prevent contracting the coronavirus, such as washing your hands, social distancing, and resisting the urge to put your hands on face---we may be suffering more from the enemy within than without. And so, even if we’re physically healthy, we're mentally infected. Why? We're forgetting or forgotten that we're spiritual beings experiencing a physical life. How many of us are heeding spiritual advice? If we did, we wouldn't do some of the things we do. Spiritual advice includes meditation, the right attitude, and truth. Take some time to close your eyes, ground yourself, and flow with the breath. Breath in peace, exhale fear. What kind of attitude are you carrying? Is it one of anxiety, fear? Or peace and patience? Are you irresponsible? Are you growing or regressing? What we need more than ever is an attitude of gratitude. We've taken life for granted too long. Be inspired. Truth is spiritual. Are we running away from the truth, and living an illusion? Let go of the ego, vanity, and narcissism. Perhaps now is the time to be the truth. Find a spiritual practice, and be it. Tune inward. It's not solely the physical advice that sustains us; life is restored, rejuvenated, and renewed through spiritual practice.

Living right is not easy. Or is it? And yet, it's easy for us to change the style of our hair and even clothes, but a change in our style of life is daunting. We give up quickly when things are not easy. So society gives us pretend-easy. Even our education systems have fast-tracks, so we experience a superficial ease. Perhaps we're confusing easiness with laziness. We don't want to put the effort in doing what is right. Avoid laziness, embrace easiness. Our struggle with our spiritual practice may not be because it’s difficult, but that we're lazy. Understand this, laziness creates tension and anxiety while easiness dispels tensions. We become relaxed. No energy is wasted on thoughts or questions that create tension. With easy, our energy flows.Chuang Tzu says. "Easy is right." Easy is enlightenment.

When something happens, it is never a coincidence. Nothing in this world is a coincidence. And so, we experience what we should be experiencing. Our lives are facts or a presence of natural laws---and so coincidences no longer exists. Sadly we go through life acting as victims of the word coincidence. Reflect on the experiences you are choosing, and the effect of those experiences on your life. What do you see? Some of us find ourselves in the same situation, not realizing the power of not only the cause but also the effect. Our relationships, finances, work, health and emotional lives are not coincidences but choices resulting in the same effect. If we find out the cause, we change the effect. When we do, we experience Àse, and inner power to effect. Experience Àse, and never refer to yourself as a coincidence, but a creator of choices.

Inspiration is the fuel for all that we do. It doesn't just happen; we cultivate it. Have you ever been around mediocre people? Did you notice that you, too, begin to settle for being mediocre and uninspired? What's needed is inspiration? Inspiration doesn't come from anyone, nor is it an imitation. Inspire comes from the Latin word that means to inflame or to blow into, to make it grow. When we inspire, we connect with the spirit, the source, and from there create. Inspiration is the antithesis of mediocrity. It's the sun being the sun, the moon being the moon. And it's the rose as a rose, and gardenia as a gardenia. Inspiration is you knowing your true self. Often, you hear people talk about who they want to be like- Buddha, Socrates, Ophray, this person, or that. Be yourself. Become inspired. Make "it" grow.

Are you taking care of yourself by eating healthy? Food should be our first line of defense for any disease. Science is slowly catching up to that reality. Unfortunately, our appetites for unhealthy foods is winning out. Eating healthy is divine. It's not something we occasionally do, but consistently. We wouldn't put gas in our tank one day, and orange juice in the next. Why treat our bodies as if it's less important than a car? For a healthy life, we need a healthy body, which is what, when, why, and where we eat matters. Begin to taste, smell, chew and digest your food. Practice eating, but not over-eating. Take a moment of silence to express gratitude for what you're about to eat. Understand that no practice is authentic if it ignores what we eat.

Feed your spirit, starve your fears. Our spiritual powers encapsulate our potential. Often people limit our potential by telling us what we can't do. And yet, through spiritual growth, we express our unlimited potential.. We refrain from using words like "trying." Worries and fears no longer exist. Fear breeds problems. Chuang Tzu says: "Inside you is the eternal, the immortal." If we connect with our inner selves, as spiritual beings, we live that eternity. Experience pure spirit, rather than dull matter. When we do, amazing things happen, conversations change, and our responses to life are no longer the same. Allocate time for discovering your spirit, which is buried under layers and layers of superficiality. Practice this simple exercise: For 10 minutes daily--connect a long, smooth, deep breath with your mind. No judgment. Witness what is going on.

Happy New Moon, March 24th. This New Moon is in Aries. In concert with the Spring Equinox, we will experience renewal, restoration, and rejuvenation. Remember, the New Moon occurs when the moon is between the Earth and sun, and the two bodies share the same celestial longitude. Resist the urge to shrug it off as just an ordinary occurrence. The New Moon is a divine gift for us to consider in our daily planning. This New Moon relates to faith, new beginnings, releasing fear, and embracing the uncertainty. How many of us could use some faith in now? Have you been muddling over doing something different in life? Right now, fear is at an all-time high-release. Inhale deeply and exhale with a loud sign. Let it go. Perhaps, our staying at home signals that for some of us, a transformation is occurring. Opportunities lie in the horizon. Only through a spiritual practice do we awaken to the wonders of the New Moon. Be present. Be patient. Be positive. Pause. Meditate.

Amidst our daily dosage of coronavirus news, other significant occurrences are happening despite not hearing about them, or even paying attention.

Unfortunately, the death tolls are rising, but so are the life tolls. That's correct—less distracted & reckless driving, complaining about work, and anger over the way we allocate our time may be inadvertently saving lives. When watching people text and talk on the cellphones, you can't help wondering who they will kill. Of course, complaints, anger, and unhealthy lifestyles will continue. But some might be getting the message. That's right; the universe might just be saving some of our lives. For one, by transforming our destructive and dysfunctional lifestyle into a constructive one. We're used to doing whatever we want, even if we went against the laws of nature. We've corrupted ourselves. Pause for a second. Look around you at the beautiful blossoms on the trees. Did you know spring arrived, the spring equinox? Nature is celebrating. See the flowers emerging—nature is celebrating. Hear the birds, nature is celebrating. The time is now. Affirm life.

The Coronavirus is presenting itself as a water and earth imbalance, or in Ayurvedic science, a Kapha disorder. Kapha disorders affect our upper respiratory system, the lungs, and head. Additionally, with a Kapha disorder, we hold onto thoughts and behaviors which we need to let go.

Do you know how to ride a bike? How about driving? Do you know how to unstop a toilet? What about cooking, can you do that? Think about all the things you know how to do. Out of all of them, you might find out that you don't know how to live. We've made doing, living. Someone is always telling us what to do. With all of our constant doing, we have forgotten the beauty of being. Life has two phases, one is doing and the other being. Over the years, we've lost ourselves in this non-stop doing, achieving, and striving, and so we've neglected our being, our very soul, our nature. We limited ourselves by what we do. And think that the money, prestige, degrees are us. We rely on others to tell us what to do with ourselves. We've become the circumference and not the center. As such, we don't know how to live. If only we realize, today that we don't have to do anything----just be. Maybe the universe is nudging us a little to remind us that we are the center, not the circumference. We are not the things we possess or do. Get out of the hell of doing, and evolve into the heaven of being. Experience Àse Yoga #whereeverybreathcounts. aseyogastudiotearoom. Like us on Facebook.

Clearly, one of the most challenging tasks for us is to stay put. We've got to somewhere. To stay in our homes and not go out is difficult. What is it about our homes that we prefer being in the street or on the go. Instead of spreading panic and fear through social media and telecommunication-- spread tranquility. Only with stillness do we achieve tranquility. With stillness, we realize there is nowhere to go, no thing we have to do. It allows us an opportunity to sharpen our senses, to gain clarity, and to feel an inner change. Perhaps this global phenomenon that we're experiencing is about changing human behavior. Possibly, in many ways, it is saving humanity. In being still slowing down---our problems may turn into solutions, our confusion into clarity, and our impasse into creativity. Yoga teaches us stillness. Experience Àse Yoga, #whereeverybreathcounts. aseyogastudiotearoom.com Like us on Facebook.

Relaxing has several health benefits. For one, relaxing boosts our immune system. Right now, nature is telling us to relax. When nature speaks, and we don't listen, we suffer the consequences. A pandemic is a form of chaos. To respond to chaos, we need balance, harmony, truth, order, law, morality, and justice. With balance and harmony, we relax. Nature's remedy also includes these five essential oils: Lavender, Bergamot, Ylang-Ylang, Jasmine, and Sandalwood. Take 10 minutes to relax. Come into Shavasana, corpse pose, also known as mummy pose. Lie down on your back, arms by your sides, palms facing up, legs slightly apart, and your eyes closed. Consciously relax your whole body. Revitalize your cells, and the internal organs—breathe in deeply and slowly. Realize healing at a frequency of 4-8Hz. Exhale completely and slowly. Self-care is essential. Take care of yourself.

Problems can be looked at in two ways-either superficially or spiritually. With our overindulgence in movies, reality shows, late night comedians, talk shows, distractions, egotism, and so on--, we lean more toward the superficial. Even superficial social media draws us in. Our relationships, conversations, and behavior are all superficial. Being superficial is an act, a pretending--- it's surface living. Going to work, and coming home, telling people what they want to hear, laughing but not crying, looking good but not feeling good, and surviving, not living. We are shallow people. "Out of a thousand: a hundred will listen, ninety will not understand; ten will walk, nine will be lost on the way. Only one will arrive – but one is more than enough." In contrast, when we live spiritually, we understand. We become that one. We become drawn toward substance, not shallowness. We become enlighten. Our problems don't recycle themselves. When we listen, we stop worrying about our rent, bills, and even health. We become creative and thus enlightened. We remember our inner gifts. We activate Àse, the power of doing.

Peace. Namaste. Hotep. Shanti. Whats up. Did you wake up this morning? What are you going to do? Same Same. Nothing different. How about expressing gratitude? For some of us, we've never felt gratitude before. Even something we think is an awful, unpleasant, or nuisance is providing us with the opportunity to transform. For wanted and unwanted experiences, praise and criticism, the people we like and don't like---be grateful. With everything that is happening, we have an opportunity to evolve, to keep humanity going, to be cleaner, conscious, and, of course, to be grateful. Understand this for our ancestors without the technology, shelter, the comforts we have-life was much harder. As humans, we’re biologically hardwired for what is happening. The problem is our lack of gratitude. Celebrate life. Be well. Practice gratitude today. Àse Yoga is grateful to all beings realizing that we're all interconnected.

Anti-stress. Anti-derangement. Anti-worry protection--Meditation. Use twice a day daily. Meditation is medicine for our overactive, busy, incorrigible mind. The word meditation comes from the Latin mederi to heal. And there is no better time than now to heal. Even before the coronavirus, 75% of Americans reported feeling stress. With meditation, we're healing a mental imbalance brought on by stress. Inevitable, the question is, how do we meditate: Come into a comfortable position, either sitting in a chair or cross leg on the floor. Place your hands in your lap, with your right palm on top of left. Or you can place your hands on your knees with the tip of index finger and thumbs together, palms facing up. Keep your eyes closed. Quiet yourself. No chatter. Maintain stillness. Breathe spontaneously. Overcome the urge to do something. Become aware of the cool air entering your nostrils and the warm air exiting your nostrils. Despite the distractions you might experience--keep your mind on your breath. Focus on the in-flow and out-flow of your breath. Allow your thoughts to flow undisturbed. Find, Feel, and Focus on the breath for 10 minutes. Talk less. Meditate more. Observe a difference in your state of mind.

If we're so afraid of dying, why don't we live differently? Our present fear is not so much of Covid-19, but death. Ironically, we will bungee jump, text and drive, indulge in drugs, murder, worry, eat whatever, and live recklessly---oblivious to death. And yet, in our ignorance, we never really live. If the threat of imminent death doesn't transform us---nothing will. Maybe we're already dead and don't even know it. What if the Covid-19 wakes us up? Perhaps we've been asleep too long. Wake-up. Respect life. Live fully. Banish words like "I'm worried," "I'm trying," "I can't," and even "I'm afraid.” For many of us, mental death has already happened. We're living in mental slavery. They say, "Life begins where fear ends." Uncorrupt your mind. Let go of Covid-19 derangement. Don't waste your time with fear. Know that your stockpile of toilet paper, food, and even water won't save you if you remain the same. Revive yourself. Be creative, compassionate, and conscious. Activate your life force.

Did you know deep breathing may boost your immune system? With practice and training, we are able to control our bodies stress and disease response. People exposed to flu-like symptoms with a meditation practice displayed fewer symptoms and higher levels of an inflammation-fighting proteins. Deep breathing improves our immune system, and regenerates cells in order to fight infections and other ailments that affect us. Practice cat/cow by inhaling as you lift your head and expand the front chest up and forward, elongate your throat, draw your shoulders back, and curve your middle spine downwards as you tuck in your tailbone. Exhale, tuck your chin to your throat, pull in your belly, and arch your spine upwards, rolling your shoulders forward and down to compress the front chest.

Fear changes everything, especially the way we breathe. We're suffering from pandemic fear. This fear, whether we know it or not, is causing our heart to beat faster, to pump more blood in our muscles and brain, and so we breathe more quickly. Our lungs are taking in air faster to supply our body with oxygen. It's the "fight or flight" response, which also increases our stress hormones cortisol in the bloodstream. We're ingesting fear, and panic through conversation, television that's harming our respiratory system. Evidentially, our minds and bodies began to mimic what others have even though we don't have it. Along with the recommendation from the medical world to stay from crowds, wash your hands, disinfect and cover cough and sneezes(standard hygiene practices)---an energy response exists. An energetic response to the fear of COVID-19 is to breathe slowly, deeply, and consciously to activate your relaxation response to strengthen not weaken our immune system through fear. Our throat Chakra is associated with the Respiratory System. We must connect to our throat energy, or respiratory system. We must communicate with love, compassion, and truth. Take this time, perhaps, to also write and express your thoughts. Creatively express yourself. Unblock your Throat energy, now is the time to practice creativity and relaxing breath. Wear blue. Àse Yoga, #whereeverybreathcounts advises that we slowly inhale oxygen coming into our lungs (which gets into our blood and then releases the energy from our cells for us to use), and completely exhale carbon dioxide (waste product and toxic if accumulated). Follow us as we reveal to you a series of relaxation responses to restore your body-mind.

As a cancer thriver of over twenty years, I never take my annual checkups for granted. So today, when the doctor reported to me that "the results of your recent test show no sign of cancer." a flood of gratitude overtook me. Unlike some peple, for me the uncertainty of life is self-evident. And yet, too often, we forget to be grateful. We've cluttered our minds with so much nonsense that we're missing out on what's important in life? We're becoming unconscious of our daily sweet gifts? Like a negative cancer screening or a normal blood pressure and so much more.. Health is something we assume until it isn't. Practice daily gratitude. With gratitude, we realize the presence of the Divinity. Appreciate your life with right work. Express gratitude in all aspects of your life.

Until we resolve, clarify, and of course, understand our traumatic experiences, our past miseries, and grief, no matter what we accomplish, we will feel restless. No amount of materialism or perceived success takes the place of discovering the underlying cause of our distress. It's not a matter of if, but when will the emotions we've ignored, suppressed, or hidden come to the surface. The answer is healing. Healing is a high yield investment with a positive return every day of our life. Àse Yoga re-empowers us with courage so that we transcend our disappointments in life.

We can be part of a crowd or a disciple of truth. A crowd mentality governs so much of what we do. If the crowd is doing it---it must be alright. Better yet, it must be normal. Yoga takes us on a journey away from the crowd so that we become centered and clear about our life. As such, we change our lives, no longer connected to the crowd but the truth. Yoga is a discipline, not a therapy. Yoga is mental, not physical. Yoga is personal, not public. When we practice, we become masters of our life. We awaken our 114 complex energy centers in the body, 72,000 "nadis," or energy channels, and take control of our life. As with any discipline, we must find a temple, a place, a dojo, which means "place of the way."

Debt, fear, depression, helplessness, worries, our mental insatiability, anxieties, insecurities, stubbornness, addictions and even narcissimism.

While " life ain't no crystal stair" for a lot of people, differences lie in how we respond or deal with adversities, set backs and even disappointments. Three types of human beings exists: The First group are those that experience an obstacle, and understand them. In doing so, they transform and transcend situations. The Second group, know deep down they should change. However, until their environment changes or a teacher comes into their life, they co-exist with the problems. Evidentially though ,they find their way in becoming enlighten. Finally, we have most of us, the dissatisfied and miserable. The complainers and victims who never experience solutions to their problems, nor acquire the skills to deal with life ups and down; life's uncertainty. When you do, you just might experience heaven on earth. Which group are you?

When we want something, it means we're not in the present moment. We're in the future. Desiring is hell. And yet, it's difficult to be in the present moment because we're conditioned to plan for the future. We talk about what we desire, not what we have; the fantasy, not the reality. We think about things that haven't even happen yet. And so every day, we're fueled by desires. Chasing desire is like playing "wack-a-mole." When you get one, more pop up. Stop playing games with your life. Desiring means we're never at peace. It's constant suffering. All that we have is the present moment. Enjoy it. Appreciate it. Stop planning for your death. Enjoy your life. Be with this present moment. Embrace your existence. So today, if you're desiring something be aware of it. Only through understanding, and meditation will we experience no-desire. And its then, we experience joy and a peaceful mind in this life.

It's never too late --unless you decide that it is to fulfill your life purpose. We get stuck mentally on barriers such as age, and life circumstances convincing ourselves--- it's over for us. But its never too late. Unfortunately, most of us will stay stuck, serve a life sentence and remain ignorant of our purpose. We will repeat the same problems and wishfully think about what our life might have been like. It's never too late to change that "might" into a reality. But it does require the courage, strength, and determination to activate your potential. As well, it requires techniques and consistent practice to transform the way you think, to radically clarify your mind. Find a teacher.

When was the last time you took a walk? Or simply sat on a bench in the park witnessing nature do her thing? How do you reconnect to what matters? So much of our life is based on appointments. So the experience of sitting and simply being is uncomfortable. Have you ever noticed how animals are never conflicted about who they are? It's human frailty to distort ourselves. Or to mark up our bodies, and express dissatisfaction in our natural features. It's a human glitch to not be still. Be in tune with nature. Be natural. For a few moments, simply be. Inhale and exhale realizing your nature is enlightenment. Realize your beauty. Again inhale Sun and Exhale the Light.

When we are young, we go through life thinking everyone is our friend, or no one likes us. As we become older friendships become defined by who wants to hang out. As such, we do things we would not otherwise do in this longing for a friend. But are these real friends, or simply people in the same proximity? Perhaps what we call a friend is an opportunist, an associate or someone just hanging around. Truthfully, some people have not learned to be a friend. "What is a real friend? Or better yet, are you a real friend? They say a friend is the highest form of love. Buddha said "Friendship never ends" Unfortunately, we take friendship for granted. We even treat strangers better than we treat a friend. If you treat your friend as a stranger, you might refrain from taking them for granted. Be grateful. Share but don't manipulate.

Have you ever totally relaxed? If you're like most people you relax by watching television or socializing and communicating, or even surfing social media. Out of all of them, television is the number one so call relaxant. What we're calling relaxing is really simply a way of distracting ourselves. But are we really relaxed? Not really because relaxation starts from within. Releasing years of pent tension take time,and consistency. They say hell is tension, relaxation is heaven. Tension is also fear. Admittedly, we don't know how to relax. Relaxing is letting go, and egoless existence and even love. So give yourself permission to relax. Do everything slowly today, walk slowly, and eat slowly. Sit in a comfortable position with closed eyes, relax your face. Find the tension within your body---relax it. Relax your mind. Learn how to relax.

How we spend our time determines the extent of our life. If our life is spent talking about high school or the past, we never graduate. Have you ever met someone stuck in high school? If our time is spent with intoxicants, then we become intoxicated. If we spend our time watching television, then we become a television watcher. There is an old proverb that birds of feather flock together. Or the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree. Who we associate with matters. Furthermore, money is not the only currency we spend. Unfortunately, we spend time and don't like what we purchased. We're not allocating our time wisely. If we change how we spending our time, we'll receive something different from life.

When you woke up this morning, did you feel heavy or light? If you felt heavy, you may be carrying some additional weight. What is this deadweight? Our ego. Our moods fluctuate based on the ego. If people say what we want to hear, the ego is satisfied, if not it becomes agitated. When that happens, it creates havoc and prevents us from thinking clearly. All the while, our ego is consistently delivering pain, paranoia, anxiety, and feelings of insecurity. The ego is all ideas and no action. Recalibrate your mind. Dissolve the ego or a false sense of self by facing reality. Life, prosperity, and healthiness lie in your hand. Reality is the kryptonite of the ego. Transform your self by losing the ego weight. Become aware, observant. Begin to heal.

We don't have money problems, nor mental ones. What we do have is spiritual problems. And only a spiritual solution solves a spiritual problem. Alcohol, marijuana, sex, relationships and even materialism are not the answer. So we say, if only I had a job, I'd be happy, we get a job and still remain unhappy. Or if only I had more friends when I was younger, I'd be more socially adept. We do what we want without thought, then blame life and others for our choices. After a while, we earn a lifetime label of "depression", "bipolar" " anxiety" or something else. Wake up. It's all spiritual. That means that the answers for what ails us lie within. So to solve money or mental problem, the first question to ask is "Who am I?" Grow spiritually, and witness the disappearance of problems. We are spirit. Know yourself, and you will win every battle.

Science is consistently affirming that our experiences and knowledge is personal. With an authentic yoga practice, we learn that all knowledge is absolutely personal. So our yoga experience should not be generic or mass-produced, but personal. Because of the mega class, mass-producing of yoga mentality, we see gymnastics as yoga. But it's not. Yoga is an amazing personal experience that brings about enlightenment or self-realization. Where do you go for that personal experience? Experience personal yoga.
