Reclaim Your Life & Body! 5 Day Challenge

Reclaim Your Life IG

Reclaim Your Life! So many of us women are caught up in the “busyness” of day-to-day life that we’ve lost touch with our dreams and our intuition. Instead of experiencing joy, we are in a constant state of overwhelm and burnout.

We have an epidemic in our culture where “stress” has become our normal state of being.

Not only is this terrible for our overall health (mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and physically), but YOU DESERVE BETTER! I’m sure you’ve heard this before, but…You Can’t Pour From an Empty Cup!

In the wise words of Ella Fitzgerald, “Somethin’s Gotta Give!”

Whether you are suffering from BURNOUT because you’re overworked, FATIGUE from overwhelm, “MOMMY-BRAIN” from always mult-tasking and sleep-deprivation, or a LOSS of HOPE in your life, THIS CHALLENGE WAS MADE FOR YOU!

I want to give you tools to help you expand time, increase energy, tap into your intuition and potential, and get back to LIVING A LIFE YOU LOVE in a BODY YOU LOVE! 

Ready to Join my 5 Day Challenge? What are you waiting for?!
We start Monday!

One more thing! Please like and SHARE this page on your favorite Social Media platform!

❣️Loving Your Life and Designing More Ease & Joy Everyday❣️Challenge

Over the weekend I ran an impromptu “Weekend Challenge” on Facebook and Instagram. In case you missed it, I’ve put them all together here. It’s simple, but very powerful stuff for transformation! If you’re interested in going further with me, read all the way through to the special offer at the end. ❤

Day 1: Gratitude

For Today, Ponder this…👇🏻
How will you end out this week? Or begin your weekend? How about letting into your heart all that’s supported you throughout the week and taking stock of what insights you’ve gained, what gifts you’ve received, and what might serve you best going forward into the weekend? Start with Gratitude. Make a list. See what’s working already for you. Let all of it in! Receive. Receive. Receive. Without clinging to what has been, or might be, coming to you. With open arms. With a knowing that everything you need will continue to come to you. Always. #heartchakra #gratitudepractice #abundance #morejoy#weekendchallenge #sacredspacehealingarts #easefulliving #lovethyself #ayurvedaAnahata Chakra(Heart Chakra)

Are you Upper-Limiting Yourself?

I’ve been meaning to connect with you lately — it’s been too long! The truth is that I keep sabotaging myself. Let me explain…

About a year ago I had an intention to start sending out a monthly newsletter to share insights and simple tips for living a healthy, happy life — including yoga, recipes, and various other things I think you’d like to know about. But here we are…one year older and no monthly newsletters to show — lol! Well, I recently had an insight about why I keep putting it off. And, because it’s something we all do, I wanted to share it with you so you can benefit from my A-HA, too!

Have you ever heard the term “Upper Limit”?In his book, The Big Leap, Gay Hendricks talks about how we self-sabotage by “upper-limiting” ourselves. He defines it like this:

“Each of us has an inner thermostat setting that determines how much love, success, and creativity we allow ourselves to enjoy. When we exceed our inner thermostat setting, we will often do something to sabotage ourselves, causing us to drop back into the old, familiar zone where we feel secure.”

Some of the ways we do this are worrying unnecessarily, playing the criticism and blame game, deflecting positivity and compliments, squabbling, and getting sick or injured. The premise is basically that we stop things from getting really great in our lives because, unconsciously, we don’t believe we deserve it. No one does it on purpose, so don’t beat yourself up. In my case with the newsletter, it was perfectionism (which might be a combination of criticism and worry).Getting It Done

Now I’ve learned that a balance needs to be struck between “getting it done” and “getting it right”, and in this case, I’ve been leaning all into the “getting it right” category, and therefore NOT getting it done at all.

Does this resonate with you? I can see how I’ve done this in so many ways throughout my life, but now that I recognize it so clearly, I’m changing how I do things. It won’t happen overnight, but it will happen. Starting with this post (which will also serve as a newsletter to those on my Email List)!

Owning up to behaviors/habits that don’t serve us is the first step in changing them. Now I’m wise to how seeking to get it right sabotages me from getting it done, so when I catch myself procrastinating on something because I want it to be “just so”, I will recalibrate and shift my trajectory towards Getting It Done.

In which ways do you Upper Limit yourself? I’d love to hear from you! Leave a comment below to start the conversation!

EVEN BETTER, take a minute to Schedule a Wellness Strategy Session with me!

Fall Into Ease: Free Talk in Lander, WY

October 21. 2017Fall Into Ease

Why do we often seem to make life harder than it needs to be?
We push ourselves too hard to produce. We try to fit too much into each day, live up to the expectations that we “think” others have for us, and then there’s FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out).

After all of THAT, there’s absolutely NO TIME left for YOU. Sound familiar? We all do it. That’s why I’m giving this talk. I want to share with you SIMPLE, EASY ways that the wisdom of Ayurveda can help bring more Ease & Energy into your life!

In this Free Talk, I’ll be giving tips on How to Nourish Yourself for More Energy & Mind/Body Ease. If you suffer from Auto-Immune issues, Chronic Fatigue, or if Stress and Overwhelm are part of your daily life, THIS IS FOR YOU!

In addition to Ayurvedic wisdom, there will be healthy seasonal snacks and beverages, awesome freebies, and a giveaway to look forward to! I hope to see you there!

What: Falling Into Ease
When: Saturday, October 21st at 10:00am
Where: Sweetwater Wellness, 628 Main St, Lander, WY

TOO MUCH!

“The two 
main causes 
of illness are 
Too Much Food and 
Too Many Thoughts.”More isn’t better.

You probably know that intuitively, even though our culture doesn’t currently support this truth (or your intuition for that matter). What can you do when all of the messaging around you is the OPPOSITE of what is Healthy and Whole? I have TWO answers. Both require a little effort on your part, but are easy peasy! Ready?
……………………………………………….
1) Make a commitment to yourself to find moments throughout your day to sit in silence. Sit well. Close your eyes. Tune into your breath. Listen for what arises within you. First you might sift through lots of thoughts, but let them pass through your mind without grabbing hold of them or examining them. Like the way clouds pass in the sky. Soft. Quiet. Spacious. Slowly allow more space between thoughts and more space within your mind and body. Deepen your breath. Settle into your Being. Let your jaw relax. Face soften…….
FEEL GOOD? (More of this will begin to help you align to your intuition and deeper truth.)
2) Take my Habit course to hone your awareness of what YOU need to live a life of THRIVE! (Read more about that HERE.)

Real Freedom

More and more, I’m wanting STRUCTURE in my life. I’m seeing how all of the “freedom” I’ve upheld as so important for most of my life, has actually been HOLDING ME BACK!
Thank You!
WHAT?! How did I miss this life memo?

I’ve been hearing it all along, but I believed structure threatened my precious freedom. Little did I know it was the thing I was missing — the thing that would prove to be the container for the freedom I craved so much!

So now the question is…Am I willing to commit to following through with actions that I deem necessary for the results I want, EVEN when I don’t want to do them in the moment? Is it just me, or is it so much easier to feel inspired to wake up before the sun rises the day before, than when the alarm goes off?

Are you interested in learning how you can set yourself up for SUCCESS to…

  • lose weight
  • eat healthy
  • have more energy & clarity
  • reduce stress in your life
  • _________________________ (fill in your own)?

ME TOO!!! Last year I was at the end of my rope with being FED UP with consistently NOT living up to the potential I felt was mine (as a human, a mother, a teacher, etc.), not following through with what I knew was in my best interest, and not being happy in my mind/body/life. I made a choice to try a different way. I found a teacher and a tribe of like-minded folks, and I invested in my SELF.

That choice has proven to be one of the BEST decisions I’ve EVER madeThat’s why I’m sharing my journey with YOU! Over the course of this month, I’ll be sharing a series of FREE workshops about healthy living, including habits that will help you:

  • Tune into your Inner Wisdom
  • Age More Gracefully
  • Cultivate a solid Self-Care Routine
  • Make Better Eating/Lifestyle Choices
  • Reduce Stress

What is Pranayama?

Pranayama is a term that refers to yogic breathing exercises, but there’s much more to be gained from learning to practice pranayama than just taking deeper breaths. The word “prana” actually refers to the vital life force that is within all living things. In Light on Pranayama, perhaps the most quintessential text on pranayama, B.K.S. Iyengar says,

“It is as difficult to explain Prana as it is to explain God. Prana is the energy permeating the universe at all levels.  It is physical, mental, intellectual, sexual, spiritual and cosmic energy. All vibrating energies are prana. All physical energies such as heat, light, gravity, magnetism and electricity are also prana. It is the hidden or potential energy in all beings, released to the fullest extent in times of danger. It is the prime mover of all activity. It is energy which creates, protects and destroys. Vigour, power, vitality, life and spirit are all forms of prana.”

Prana also denotes pure consciousness — mental focus is just one other facet of energy. The practice of “prana” (breath, life, vitality, respiration) – “yama” (expansion, extension, breadth), is the practice of expanding the vital life energy throughout the body. Pranayama has VAST benefits including — mental clarity, increased energy, a calm mind, emotional/energetic balance. According to Iyengar, “through the abundant intake of oxygen by its disciplined techniques, subtle chemical changes take place in the …body…and the practice of pranayama regulates [the] flow of prana thorughout the body…it also regulates…thoughts, desires and actions, gives poise and the tremendous will-power needed to become a master of oneself.”

So much potential gain from some breathing exercises, right?? Whether you’re sold yet, or not, I can assure you that it’s a worthy practice! This is why I created two videos to introduce you to the basics of pranayama.  Regardless of whether yoga is your thing, or not, everyone can benefit from learning how to breathe better. Check out the two videos below and comment below this post to let me know how it goes! I’ll be sure to read all of your comments/questions/suggestions.

In Part 1, I talk about what “prana” is and the importance of sitting properly during breathing exercises. I also teach you how to practice Ujjayi (you-JI-ee) pranayama, along with reclining options for practicing breathing exercises.


In Part 2 I show you how to practice Nadi Shodhana pranayama. ***Note: I got distracted at the end by my kids arriving home. I was afraid someone would come in and interrupt the video, so I ended it without finishing the last round of nadi shodhana. When you practice, continue as long as you’d like making sure to finish with exhaling through the left nostril.

Interested in learning more about Pranayama and Yoga? I’ll keep offering freebies on this blog and my YouTube channel. Let me know below what you’d like to see more of! Or, if you’re ready to dive in deep, check out my 6-week online yoga course, Renew You!
