Why Kinesthetic Awareness Matters
How to Find Liberation Beyond Your Comfort Zone
Most of us give little thought to how our bodies move on a daily basis, or where we are physically in space. We move through our days at a hurried pace, focusing on the future or the past, instead of fully immersing ourselves in the present moment.
But what if we did?
How to Ground Yourself in the Present Moment
Learning to recognize the difference between the leap that exhilarates you, inspires you to explore the world that’s within your grasp if you only reach for it – and the dive that glimmered with false promise but leaves you grasping for rough edges as you fight the free fall you’d never bargained for. Trusting the process –and the growth that accompanies new experiences – can only triumph if we learn how to read our internal compass. And the more we tune in with our intuition, the stronger the connection.
How Meditation Can Help You Find Clarity
Whether we’re busy worrying about a potential future event or fixating on a past mistake, mental time travel disconnects us from the present moment and takes us out of our bodies. With social media and technology competing for our attention now more than ever, it’s far too easy for us to ignore the people, places, and opportunities before us and lose ourselves in mindless behavior.
How to Create Space to Slow Down and Breathe Every Day
Meditation can seem difficult and intimidating, but once you fling away the veil that often shrouds the practice in mystery, you’ll find it truly is as simple as intentionally carving out time, creating space for stillness, and using breath to relax the body and prepare the mind.
Why Yoga Centers Me Each Morning
Pausing to focus on the breath strengthens the mind-body connection and brings us back to experience present-moment sensation. The added benefit? Intentionally lengthening our exhalations and expanding the entire diaphragm slows and deepens the breath—and triggers our parasympathetic nervous system, telling our bodies to physically relax.
Beyond the physical and mental benefits, my daily yoga practice has elevated my sense of purpose and intensified my ability to experience gratitude. I feel empathy and compassion more deeply – not only for others, but for myself.
