Healing Journey’s: Anchor – Sink or Swim

Posted by with No Comments

Sitting with Anchor. I am visualizing this fantastic cosmic ocean that is everything. Everything that can ever be imagined before it is imagined and everything once imagined now made manifest.

Then as the leaves started to fall, it was time to root in order to fully be in the glory to rise strong like trees, creating a solid foundation to reach for the stars. We took it all in as we embraced the journey and the beauty in it all!

If you are just joining our NS tribe and family (and we are so glad you are here) or had quite a busy year, here are the themes we explored in 2017, our year in review …

Virasana – Hero Pose

Posted by with No Comments

Hero Pose is a classical seated yoga posture that stretches the thighs and ankles while improving posture. It is one of the most ancient and traditional postures used for meditation and breathing exercises (pranayama).

Hero Pose is similar to the seated pose called “Thunderbolt Pose”. The main difference is that the feet are together in Thunderbolt Pose, while in Hero Pose, the heels are alongside the hips and the buttocks are on the floor.

Benefits (from yogajournal.com)

  • Stretches the thighs, knees, and ankles
  • Strengthens the arches
  • Improves digestion and relieves gas
  • Helps relieve the symptoms of menopause
