#MondayMeditation: A New Day

textgram_1522628118.pngThis week brings about some big changes for me. As I’ve shared before, I’ve got a lot of changes going on in life, as we all do. I’m beginning to phase out my classes in Indy at Dragonfly 360. It’s bittersweet. What is now Dragonfly 360 was once All People Yoga Center, where I did my initial yoga training and is the place I think of as my yoga home in Indy. I will love having less time on the road but will miss the students who always bring such a great sense of community to classes there. Thank you to all who have joined me on my journey and thank you for allowing me to be a part of yours.

Love & peace,

Debra

#MondayMeditation: Heart Chakra

I am love

In yoga, the heart is the seat of wisdom and love. Know that you are loving and you are loved. Meditate today on the mantra: I am love.

Peace and love,

Debra

#MondayMeditation: Sacral Chakra

Sacral Chakra mantra

Winter is a time when we often spend more time than normal indoors due to weather and shorter days. We often feel stuck in a rut. To help get rid of those feelings, try meditating on the sacral chakra (svadisthana) to help yourself feel more creative. So find a comfortable seat or reclined position, focus on the space between the pubic bone and belly button, and repeat the following mantra: I am creative. I am confident. I am at secure.

Peace out,

Debra

#MondayMotivation: Keep It Simple

KeepItSimpleI know I’ve been absent for a while and I’ll post a personal update soon, but for now I’ll just share my motivating phrase for this week: Keep it simple.

Classes this week will focus on simple poses and breath work. My gentle hatha yoga classes will build on Jason Crandell’s ten poses to practice daily, and my yin and restorative classes will focus on a few poses that foster deep relaxation and contemplation.

My motivation for this week’s theme? I tend to overthink things in a pretty significant way, which leads to stress and anxiety. Life goes much more smoothly when I relax and trust the process, so that’s what I’m reminding myself of this week. I’ll share my tips and experiences the rest of this week, so I hope you’ll tune in.

Keeping it simple,

Debra
