Stop and stretch in the doorway in the hall

I have a lot of tension in my job and life and life and pausing for those few moments to stretch my neck and shoulders reminds me to breathe and it feels good

Stay in the Moment

It's always been hard for me to come back from a slip up. With a little bit of yoga breathing, I've learned to let go of the disappointment and not turn to emotional eating. Yoga has always taught me to focus on my breath as a way of "staying in the moment." When I feel some emotional eating creeping up on me, I focus on my breathing, closing my eyes (wherever I am) and listening to the slow in and out of my breath. Besides calming me down, it reminds me to stay focused on the moment!

How to breathe when running

The best advice I ever got about running was to concentrate on pushing the used air out. Your body will get air in--you don't need to worry about it. Use your abdominal muscles to push out the carbon dioxide and fresh air will come rushing in.

Yoga to sleep well

Although I cannot physically do a lot of yoga, I do what I can, and I try to do some at night a few hours before bed. I practice deep breathing, warrior, and just a few others. It helps me to de-stress, and relax, and align my spine.
