Everything’s Better with Breath

Breath. Say it softly to yourself and feel the gentle exhale. Breath. Remember the first time your child whispered a secret into your ear and you could feel their breath on your skin? Breath. Remember a time that you ran so hard or cried so hard, that there was nothing left except to gasp?
Breath is our mostly silent partner throughout our lives. It is how we first let others know that we have arrived into this world with our first cry and it is our companion to the very last as we leave. In an average lifetime we breathe over 600,000,000 times. If we live to 80 its over 750,000,000! In all of this quiet partnership, how often do we acknowledge the power of our lungs to keep us moving throughout the day? How often do we question if/when our next breath will occur?
Physiologically, our lungs are a marvel. We have 3 lobes in our right lung and 2 lobes in our left. Without even thinking we inhale over 2,000,000 liters of air everyday. The surface area of our lungs is approximately the same size as a tennis court. Average lung capacity for a man is about 6 liters, for a woman its 4.5 to 5 liters. During normal respiration we only use about 8-10% of that capacity!
In yoga, breath is known as Prana. But Prana also means the life force or vital energy which permeates the body. It is held to be similar to the Chinese qi, the Japanese ki, and the Greek pneuma. Breath is considered so important in yoga that it gets its very own area of study, also known as one of the eight limbs of yoga, and its […]

Wrapping Up The Year and Loving It!

Take a deep breath A N D….Happy December!!!! I know that for many of us, December is our favorite month and also one of our most stressful. This year I am choosing to live in the space of “Most Favorite”.
2012 has been very generous with me and I am so very grateful. Many wonderful things are beginning to manifest. Coming from a desire to synergize the Thai Yoga Therapy, in September I went back to massage therapy school. I have great teachers, great classmates and get to re-connect with my love of learning and being a student. Then in October, as many of you know, I was able to move my/our (including you all:) Thai practice into The Synergy Studio space. This is HUGE for me! In the 18 years that I have owned my own businesses, I have always worked out of the house. I have discovered, that while I miss the girls (our dogs), I LOVE having a more public space from which to work. I hope this has come through for those of you who have visited the new space as well.
So now, how can I help all of you during this beautiful crazy month?

#1. Well, back to it where started, if things start feeling like too much, PLEASE take a breath and allow it to re-connect to your heart:).

#2. If you need it, take a little time for yourself, if that’s a bubble bath with a glass of wine, a walk outside, a yoga class or giving yourself some Thai time.

#3. If part of what is stressing you out is trying to find gifts for your special people, maybe this year try something a little different. Many times what we […]

The Universe Has the Last Laugh

Well, I actually started this update last month and had entitled it “Change”. I just didn’t realize what kind of change was in store…on the 24th of August I managed to re-injure my left shoulder. I guess the Universe decided that I needed to practice my yoga in a bigger way. So, while I’m healing I will be taking a break from teaching Wednesdays at Synergy.
The good news is that I am still allowed to practice the Thai Yoga Therapy-thank goodness for feet and elbows☺. So, the new Thai schedule is up through October. Don’t forget to try out the reservation form.
Looking forward to seeing you all soon and take a deep inhale and exhale while this great cooler weather lasts.

FROM TALIA!!!
Hello! And happy Summer to you all. I m writing to let you all know that I will be doing a healing class in San Antonio, Tx. August 27-28, 2001. That’s only 24 days from now, but there were a few people asking for this sort of thing and that’s when it works to be there. I hope that you will join in the healing weekend.

The class will be two days, Saturday and Sunday. 9:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. with a lunch break each day. The class will focus entirely on the Auric dimension/energy field…unless I am guided to do any group healing in other dimensions, of course. We will spend Saturday going into deeper understanding of our personal energy fields, how to work with them, sense them, clear them and run energy through them more consciously. The second day we will focus on how to use our energy field to work on others. We will focus on how to charge the energy field of another as well as their chakra system. This is called an energy chelation.

The goal here is to have lots of self healing throughout the weekend and to leave with skills for bettering yourselves…AND so that […]

Summer Thai Yoga Calendar

Hello everyone! We had a wonderful time at the first Intro to Yogic Arts workshop. Many thanks to everyone who attended. The Tuesday 4:30 p.m. class is a lot of fun. If it works in your schedule, come and play!
My jigsaw puzzle of family, work and Thai Yoga is finally together for the summer. I have stopped the appointments in mid-August. As soon as I know my fall schedule at Northeast Lakeview, I will update the calendar. You may also notice that several of the spots are already full. This is because people are booking ahead. If you find that you would like to make a monthly appointment, please let me know and I can book you in ahead. If none of these times work for you, please let me know and I will see what I can do.
Hope that you all are staying hydrated and cool!
With deep Metta,
Tricia
