Yes, there is more press about how folks are hurting themselves doing what they think is getting them in good shape and form. Yoga, Pilates, sports, including all kind of workout styles. can be detrimental to the body if there is no awareness to basic postural intelligence. Training our body to own this information is vital to the way our body ages.
StraightenUP is so helpful for all…. young and mature people as well as everyone else.
When I first began to practice Yoga, my teacher said that in about a year I would see a difference in myself, and indeed I did. I was more relaxed, more aware, more present, patient, etc…I like to describe Yoga as not a What, but a How. An approach to life, a philosophy, a way of living life, a study of energy. What could be more interesting than understanding yourself, how your body works, how your mind works, and how to control your body and mind and ultimately know yourself better. Practicing takes you into subtle unconscious stress patterns, not only in the Physical body but the mental and emotional body as well. We can get in touch with the extraordinary powers of our intuition, inspiration, our health and abundance. We an re-shape our whole life.
Love requires continuos practice, and the best place to begin practicing is on yourself. When you acquire the art of loving yourself, you naturally love others as well. Many people beat themselves up psychologically day and night. They use the weapons of tension, anxiety,guilt, and fear. Such self hatred does not allow you to love others. If you are in love with yourself, you hate no one.
-Yogi Amrit Desai

No need to wax eloquent regarding the importance of our feet, after all, fat or thin, tiny or tall, our feet have to carry us all. While our feet are beneath us all, they surely deserve more attention and care than we are used to giving them. Women have always suffered the most from the concept that tiny feet were the ideal. While not quite as harmful as the Chinese custom of foot binding, which permanently crippled countless well-bred girls, modern footwear like stilettos and pointy toes are hardly foot friendly. Shoes that remain from thirteenth and fourteenth century European Royalty show that the western world is not entirely innocent of idealizing small feet as well.
StraightenUp will teach you how to use your feet. Worth looking at!!

With the catastrophe, Sandy that we are experiencing, all we can do is look within, get the energy reserve we have when we try to keep a positive attitude and stay present. One day at a time. So beautiful to see how people come together and assist each other. Looking forward we will see a lot of booming in the construction, building and automobile business. A good thing from something very bad. I keep on looking to see what I can see through this event, and each day I see something else. Try it, it helps! Namaste, Lorie
