“That which we constantly affirm becomes true for us” – Louise Hay
Welcome to day 27!! Sat Naam and Namaste!! When I close my eyes, I see your light shining so brightly!
Thank you for being on this journey with me, my heart is full of gratitude to each of you!
Including today we have 4 more days of daily practices together. If you choose, you can start back at day 1 for another 30 days, the videos will always be available for you to return to. I will continue to do a weekly video for you, a little bit of a longer practice to help support you during this time, and when we’re on the other side of this. This has been a powerful way to connect with each of you, through the gift of our breath and our collective practice.
Today, Can you take a moment and close your eyes, and repeat that simple word, with softness? Can you simply begin today by repeating today on a wave of nourishing breath.
Try not to focus on the details that haven’t even happened yet, we do that alot – predicting often a negative unraveling of a day that hasn’t even started yet. We base these predictions on past experience and we feed those feedback loops in our brain often attracting those same experiences to keep happening in a similar way. I wonder if today could be different, no expectations of how the day will unfold, just softly inviting the day to simply be what it will be, a healthy alternative is to affirm in your mind and simply invite the quality of ease, openness and peace into your day, not with expectation but simply an invitation. Much of our experience is based on our attitude and how we approach what we are faced with. This breath, this moment, this day – nothing has to come – invite ease, notice your breath. Notice how your day unfolds from this place of peace and openness.
Jon Kabat-Zin reminds us that as long as we’re breathing there is more right with us than there is wrong with us, and maybe going even further, rather than focusing on the rightness or wrongness can we just experience breath with gratitude? Take a few minutes to sit with this…………
In our practice today, we’ll be exploring our hips and releasing through the low back. We hold alot of physical tension in this part of our bodies, as well as alot of our deep often uncomfortable emotions. Join me as we move through a stretching sequence that is wonderful for releasing scar tissue in the hips, opening up the joints, releasing the muscles of the buttocks, and open up the tissues of the lower back. Moving through these postures can also help us to naturally feel more at ease in our own bodies – physically and emotionally. I encourage you to move through the sequence with me, and then take some time on your own, taking at least 5 or 6 breaths, if not more, in each phase of the sequence.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out, I’m here.
Have a beautiful day, and if you’re thoughts start to get ahead of you, can you come back to the breath with kindness and simply repeat today, ease, peace, today.
With so much love, till tomorrow
