Detoxing has become all the rage! People doing all different kinds of cleanses, colonics, cryogenics, detoxifying diets and foods, and the list goes on and on. To each it’s own. I truly believe we should all be doing whatever works for us, but some of these things are not available to the masses. So what if you could detoxify right in the comfort of your living room, for FREE! Wanna know how? Keep reading…
It has been said that we have anywhere from 50,000-70,000 thoughts per day and it could even be more. That’s insane! Our brain is beautiful, magical, wonderful, powerful, and its also…a liar! Think of all the silly things you think about during the day. “I’m fat, I’m stupid, I’m not good enough. I’ll never get this job, he/she will probably never call me again. My dad called 3 times, I bet something horrible happened to mom.” You know exactly what I’m talking about. We drive ourselves completely insane…over NOTHING! Some of these things are important for our survival; “Don’t touch that it’s hot, you probably shouldn’t walk down that dark alley alone, it’s dangerous.” These things keep us alive and safe. So how do we weed out the unnecessary thoughts and hold onto the ones that matter. Can meditation help?
It’s official, we’re highly stimulated at all times. Our personal lives are busy, our professional lives are busy, the world around us is busy at all times. There seems to be very little time to retreat and refresh. Even when we’re home “relaxing” we’re stimulated, either by the television or social media, etc. There has never been a time that we needed to slow down as much as we do today. A quick and easy restorative practice once a week could literally change your life and your health. Check it out:

Wanna know what drives me batty??? LABELS!!!
Here are some things I often hear:
Why do you wear so much black? How can you be a yoga teacher and wear so much black? Are you unhappy?
You don’t eat meat or dairy? Are you healthy? Where do you get your protein?
You’re how old and you’re not married and you don’t have kids? Aren’t you worried your window might be closing?
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.
