Beyond the diaphragm: improving your breath for optimum health

Posted by on Jan 22, 2016 in Evolution Blog | 0 comments

We’ve all heard that being aware of and improving our breathing pattern is good for us. And there are so many reasons why improving your breathing is so important, it almost takes your breath away! The pelvic floor and the diaphragm are intimately connected, as they both work to increase intra-abdominal pressure, which is one way that the “core” muscles help stabilize your body. In addition to helping you stay alive, the diaphragm is the top of the cylinder that forms the deep abdominal muscles.  Improving the work of the diaphragm can improve core muscle function, and reduce pelvic pain. Did you know that having an altered breathing pattern...

21-Day Meditation Challenge – Day 20: Om Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaya

Mantra is an excellent tool for meditation. A mantra can be a name, a saying, or something traditional. Sadhguru, an Indian yogi, mystic, philanthropist and author, describes mantra this way: Mantra means a sound, a certain utterance or a syllable.

21-Day Meditation Challenge – Day 19: Walking Meditation – The Art of Moving Meditation

Taking your meditation practice off your mat gives you the opportunity to explore a form of moving meditation.

Start in mountain pose.  Feel the contact points between your feet and floor.  Start to tune into your breath.  Begin to walk slowly either in a circle or a straight line...

21-Day Meditation Challenge – Day 18: Japa Mala

Posted by on Jan 18, 2016 in Evolution Blog | 0 comments

Those strands of beads wrapped around the necks and wrists of fashionable yogis (and people who want to look like yogis) are more than an accessory. Take them off your neck, hold them in your hand, and discover the one meditation prop you’ll ever really want or need. Standard japa mala, or prayer beads, come in strands of 108 beads — for the 108 names of Krishna — with a larger, tasseled “guru bead” used to mark the start and end of a full prayer cycle. (Wrist malas have 27 beads — you make four cycles to get to 108.) The beads can be made of wood, stone, crystal,...
