Lighten Up – Yoga for Weight Management

You only have to learn one thing: You have to learn why you overeat.             This Course is For You If… You are the “I don’t have time for myself” person.  The guy or gal that puts their job responsibilities and their care for their loved ones above their own needs. Then, one day, and maybe for you that’s today, you look in the mirror and say, “What happened?  Who am I?  This isn’t working.” Sound like you?     It’s time to “Lighten Up” your weight.     Are you at the mercy of a hectic schedule? Do you find that you don’t have time for your personal and creative endeavors, feel bad about a lack of exercise, and constantly worrying about your health? Are you using food and drink as a coping mechanism and are you ready to be done doing that?     If yes, then YES! Lighten Up: – Yoga for Weight Management is for you!     But It’s Not Easy… Changing our habits doesn’t happen overnight.  It is a muscle that needs to be built over time. You aren’t broken, and you don’t need to be “fixed,” but you DO need the time to develop a new skill set to support yourself. Is this resonating...

Stop.  Drop.  Roll. 0

Stop. Drop. Roll.

Yesterday after class, a few of us were talking about all the delicious treats that come around this time of year. I mean, what are ya supposed to do? Ya eat it…ya feel bad…ya make an oath to jump back on the health train…ya jump back on…ya roll for a while…then…a work party and ya eat it.  Right? And how old are you? HOW long have you been doing this? What if you could jump off that mental trip all together? What if, yeah, ya still ate it but you didn’t have to go in that mental toxic waste land over and over and over again?  What if you just shifted? Yoga for Weight Management Course The Inner Gaze Philosophy teaches you this shift. Is it Radical?  Yes, I think for lots of us, it is! Yet it’s simple.  And you don’t have to implement it every single time! In fact, once you learn it and start to understand it, the benefits come into not just the way you view food…but the way you view relationships, work, social obligations as well. You evolve instead of change. 3 Simple Steps: 1. Compassion. Have compassion for where you are.  Compassion that you had that 4th Italian cookie or 3rd class of wine....

Who Is Your Baby? 0

Who Is Your Baby?

I’m diving into some woo woo today. Don’t be frightened. Actually, be frightened if you want. Be whatever you are. What does your baby say? Is it upset? Tired? Hurt? What does it need from you? If you have been reading me for a while you know I’m talking about your inner baby/inner child. How different we are to the inner child versus the sweet faces that sit around our dinner table with us is what I am pondering. This exploration has been something I have been diving into in my own life and with a lot of private clients lately. I am constantly blown away at how sweet we are to the external people in our lives and, yet, so impatient, toxic and sometimes even violent we are with our own inner characters…the baby within that didn’t get her needs met, the preschooler who was shamed, the young child who was bullied…etc. I am asking: can we hold sacred our inner selves even when they are toxic, negative, whiny or scared? Can we care for them in sweet ways? I am finding often, the answer is no. No. We don’t want to exhibit patience to ourselves when we fall short or have needs that are unreasonable. No. We...

I’m Not Scared Anymore

For the last few weeks, I have been letting a series of things go.  I wasn’t even really conscious that I was doing this until about 10 minutes ago.  And here I am.  Pulling out this keyboard now and typing it out.  I am sharing it with you.  It’s real time.  I am gathering it up and sharing it as I make sense of it myself. I have been working very hard over the last 4 months or so doing some intense inner work around trauma.  Partnered with the fact that, over the last year, I have been fortunate to have met, and be in a relationship with, the most patient, loving and wonderful man who has provided me and gifted me with the greatest and most real love I have ever known.  (Him’s my babycakes.) I am guessing, these two, have worked in sync, to safely and gently crack me open.  To give me the inner courage and to open up to my inner whispers of what it is I need to get done…what it is I need to put into effect…to have what I most want to show up in my life at this time.  Here.  And now.  And dagnabbit, it’s working.   The warrior in me,...

Embrace the Suck 0

Embrace the Suck

  I end almost every class I teach with:  “Be Grateful.  Be Grateful for those things that go your way and be grateful for those things that don’t.  There are lessons there too.” And sometimes, they Suck! Sometimes your man doesn’t love you back, sometimes you take a risk and it doesn’t pay off, sometimes your kid takes a right turn and gets lost…really lost… Can you practice gratitude then?  For real? I know!  It sounds crazy.  And believe me, when it’s things that don’t go MY way…ugh!   I came across this wonderful quote recently,  “We turn to God when our foundations are being shaken, only to find it is God who is shaking them.”  – Anonymous It is in these collisions, those feelings of unsteadiness, that we are encouraged or downright forced to step back and re-evaluate.  We get to gain perspective on the crash; the lead up, the hit, the pain.  We get to stop for the moment to pause, to reflect on what we are doing, how things are going.  It is in these uncontrollable situations that we have the time to check in, take note, and get ourselves back into right alignment with who we are, who we are becoming and which habits/patterns we...
