Over the next few weeks I’m going to be sharing my top 3 breathing techniques. I teach all 3 of these to my new clients. They are easy, accessible & actionable. I think they’re great for beginners & advanced students alike. You don’t have to have any special skills to do these techniques, you just need to know how to breath & I think you’ve probably got that one figured out since you’re reading this. You can do them anywhere & anytime, just like how you’re breathing wherever you are right now. That’s how simple this is. I love doing these breathing techniques lying down but I find they’re very helpful in a pinch; during stressful situations, heavy traffic, when I can’t sleep & when I’m feeling anxious. Breathwork is MAGIC! Keep an eye out for these techniques, they’ll be posted one-by-one over the next few weeks. I’ve added some benefits below.

When living with a chronic or terminal disease you have to talk about it a lot! I lived at the doctor’s office, I lived in hospitals, the dialogue was always about my disease. That eventually bled into all of my conversations with family, friends, people I had just met, etc. Two things happen, in my opinion, you get so used to talking about your disease that it just becomes natural to talk about it, and you become addicted. Just as someone gets addicted to a drug, or trauma, you become addicted to your “disease.” My disease, Lupus, became my crutch and excuse for everything, for all my problems. It was the reason I couldn’t do this or that, it was the reason I was a certain way, or acted a certain way…but it wasn’t. I was swimming in my own sorrow. Of course my disease is limiting, there truly were and are certain things I cannot do, but where did I draw the line… I didn’t.

Rest is SO SO SO important. If I could workout 7 days a week I would BUT because I am a good yogi I allow myself one down day per week (typically Sunday), and one restorative day per week (typically mid-week, like Wednesday). Listen to your body! It will always tell you what it needs, you just have to listen. If you’re body is telling you that you need to workout like a maniac 7 days a week, be the boss and tell it to simmer down. When we overwork anything it becomes worn out, our bodies are no different. It needs rest to be healthy and happy. If you don’t give yourself time to recover from anything (work, illness, exercise) you will get sick, your body will eventually call it quits. So take one day off during the week, and also take one day to practice restorative work. That being said, take a look below for some easy restorative yoga poses. Practice safe my friends ❤ Continue reading “Rest & Recover”
Let’s face it, life is bananas, and it just keeps getting more bananas every single day. We all have so much on our plates; work, family, friends and our own dreams and personal maintenance. Sometimes I can barely find time to shower, eat lunch or even breath (I’m being a bit dramatic) you get the point, and I know you know what I mean. These high-stress lifestyles that “most” of us are living these days simply aren’t good for our health. It’s imperative we learn how to slow down and quiet the mind from time to time, let YogiNest show you how.
