  • Flame of the Heart Meditation

    In the Yogic tradition we think of the heart as the space in the center of our chest and inside that space - a flame burning steadily, continuously, calmly. In this meditation we focus on the flame, explore it, bring steadiness to our breath, to our mind, to our body in order to connect to the s...

  • Pranayama for the Throat Chakra

    Today we are working with several pranayama practices to warm, clear and release the throat, neck, jaw and head. The area of the throat is so important to keep mobile and clear as we speak our truth here and also listen with mindfulness. Join me for this practice to bring a little awareness to ...

  • Lions Breath | Pranayama for Release

    I know - many of us have seen Lion's Breath and maybe even practiced it before and perhaps - we felt a bit silly doing it. That's okay - feel silly. Embrace the fun in this pranayama and release tension from the face, neck and jaw - helping release the throat as well!

  • Pranayama for Balance

    Today's pranayama practice is all about bringing balance to your body, mind and energy levels. Every 90 minutes we cycle between each side of our bodies - at times being on the sun or right side and other times on the moon or left side. We breath predominantly through that side during these cyc...

  • Vishama Vritti Pranayama | Energizing Breath

    Vishama vritti pranayama is extending either the inhale or the exhale longer than the opposite. In this practice we will be extending the inhale to brighten, energize and bring more clarity to our thoughts. An excellent mid day perk up and a great way to deepen your breath for more oxygenation.

  • 4 * 7 * 8 Pranayama | Soothing Breath

    One of the first pranayama practices I ever learned was the 4 7 8 breath and I have used it SO much! Perfect for when you need to calm your mind/body, manage panic attacks or anxiety, or for settling down for sleep - this is a great go to breath practice. Try it!

  • Pranayama | Presence in the Pause

    At the beginning/end of each inhale and exhale there is a natural, organic pause - a gap - a still point. In this practice we explore that gap, lengthening it, feeling into it and discovering what this feels like for mind and body.

  • Vishama Vritti Pranayama | Sinking Breath

    In this practice we are working with Vishama Vritti - extending the exhale longer than our inhale - allowing our minds/bodies to soften, allow, and ground. This is a great breath for Yin and Restorative yoga practices - helping our bodies go into the parasympathetic nervous system for some rest ...

  • Pranayama | Fullness of the Breath

    The lungs are much larger than we often explore in our daily breath. Often we breathe into just one side or the other more or we breathe into the center of the chest and not the side body.

    In this practice we will explore compartments of the breath, focusing on areas one at a time then altogeth...

  • Bhramari Breath | Humming Bee Pranayama

    Bhramari breath - or humming bee breath - is one of the most fun pranayama practices and one that can help clear the throat chakra and release tightness in the chest. I have often used this breath with children and they always love it so if you want to share this with someone - please do!

This simple little breath is great ANY TIME and can be used to crown your Yin or Restorative practice for a deepe...

    People who practice daily gratitude, research shows, live happier, healthier, and more fulfilling lives. Let's be honest - humans are hardwired to see more negative than positive so what we need to do is TRAIN our minds to be more grateful.

    That's what this is all about - taking a few momen...

  • Energy Clearing Meditation

    Throughout our day we engage with others in conversations, transactions, and energy exchanges. Often, that energy leaves a residue behind - feeling heavy and weighted. This meditation is all about washing that residual energy from others and from your day away so you can feel refreshed and ligh...
