Happy #YogaMonday: Yoga Life Philosophy and Lifestyle

Happy #YogaMonday!

Last week I started Oprah & Deepak’s Finding Your Flow 21-Day Meditation Experience. I am using the 21-Day Meditation Experience to deepen my home yoga and meditation practice. So far, it has helped me connect with my seven chakra energy centers and the flow of my Shakti energy (also known as prana, chi or life force) in my body, mind, spirit, heart, and breath. Click here to join the Meditation Experience (it’s free)!

The first seven days of the Finding Your Flow Meditation Experience introduced the foundation of each chakra with powerful affirmations. I used them to as guides for my daily yoga practice. See them below.

Today I had an opportunity to share what I discovered about myself through the meditation experience during my Spring coaching session with my life coach and yoga teacher, Yael Flusberg.

One of the things I appreciate and enjoy about Yael’s coaching approach and practice is that she supports her clients in cultivating a holistic, healthy, and balanced lifestyle. It is based on yoga as a life philosophy and lifestyle. Yoga is a Sanskirt word that means union of your spirit, heart, mind, body, and life. I call Yael’s coaching approach and practice the “Yael Flusberg Method” which invites you to define, explore, and integrate healthy attitudes, habits, and self-care practices into your life (business, career, creativity, digital experiences, finances, health, home, leisure, relationships, and volunteer service).

What is your yoga life philosophy?

Do you maintain a yoga lifestyle? How so?

Creative Play Confession – Me & the Hula-Hoop

Happy Monday!

 Confession time. Friday night I rediscovered a childhood love — the hula hoop — while eating dinner at my sistalove Yael’s home.  Yael is also my fabulous life coach, yin yoga teacher, and copy editor for my poetic memoir and novel.  She’s loaded with talent!  After a yummy dinner, Yael reintroduced me to hula hooping during my coaching session.  She suggested that I try it out as a tool to strengthen and tone my core.  After hooping for several minutes, I felt this tingling rush that reminded me of how I used to feel when I played as a child.  I call it the hula-hoop magic!  What a natural high!  After my coaching session, I walked home, carrying the hula-hoop magic with me.  Guess what happened next?  I logged onto my computer, visited Amazon.com, and ordered an inexpensive rainbow-colored hoop that I can travel with.  When it arrives in a few days, I will officially enter the land of HOOPNOTICA, a kingdom of creative play!

What kinds of creative play activities are you involved in or plan to do this summer?

Enjoy your day and week!

Peace, Creativity, and Hula-Hoop Magic,

Ananda
