Please do not put your smartphone in your back pocket, nor wear it in your bra. Why?…
The sun has set and here come the Harvest Moon! I do these radiant hearts to pull the earth’s energy up and into my body and keep me open and available for love — what more is there? 😉
My production crew (Dito & Henry) were in the frame, scoozi!
Children do it, athletes too. When you have nervous energy in you, sometimes it feels great to shake your hands as if they are pompoms and let the tension fly out! My hound dog Bandito is with me for this sped-up version of shaking it out.
What an INCREDIBLE way to start the day, up with the hot air balloons at Snow Mass just outside of Aspen! I am doing an energy medicine move called “Heaven & Earth”! This grounding technique will help move stress out of your body and calm your senses.
Reach up with a flat palm on your right hand, while your left hand is palm-facing the earth, and take a deep breath. Switch positions as you breathe deep. Heaven & Earth, thank them both!
Heading out of Little Rock on my way back to Austin, I stopped at the Big Dam Bridge at sunrise to give my thanks for an amazing NIA Dance-filled week. Sunrise and sunset are absolutely my most favorite times of the day and I love to honor these times xx
I was mid-week in my NIA Dance training and I completely forgot where I was…. Little Rock, Arkansas. Which I really enjoyed, lovely sights!
High atop the Hot Springs Mountain Tower, I did some qi gong moves to help free up my spine and open up my creativity. Whew it was hot in Arkansas, but a stop at the old world Buckstaff Bathouse was a tremendous way to spend an afternoon.
This is a great technique to wake up the body in the morning or prepare for sleep in the evening; better known as Knocking On The Door of Life. I spend much of my qigong & t’ai chi time spinning my spine for good health.
The day I decided to share all-things-good-energy I’ve been studying: Energy medicine, qigong, t’ai chi, NIA dance, intuition development, reiki, yoga, meditation and raising my vibration… all which have helped navigate my way through grief.
My very first #NewEnergyin15 and I didn’t even know it! I had been taking an awesome Mambo T’ai Chi class in San Miguel de Allende (I go every time I’m in SMA, see Lydia Wong if you go!).
Lydia teaches a fun & energetic style of learning t’ai chi, because she knows it can get boring, so she mixes it up with salsa, mambo and really great brain disrupters! By creating new ways of thinking — new patterns — we keep our brains young & juicy. This exercise will disrupt old patterns by having you counting backwards, in spanish, while flexing “lazy” fingers.
The feet are moving too, but I’ll get to that another time.
