The Real Teachers

It is the greatest honor to share yoga with people living with traumatic brain injuries.  I believe that so often when an ‘event’ such as those that my people have experienced occurs, the Ego is no longer part of their life.

They no longer battle the things us ‘typical’ people battle; competition, comparison, grasping for material things, future based fears, past regrets….those are all Ego.  Instead, my people show up in WHOLENESS as they are with no agendas and the most open of hearts.

They are indeed present to what is and often in the most joyous of ways.  They have taught me far more than I have taught them.

I believe wholeheartedly that they are truly the most extraordinary of teachers.

Heart Chakra

The fourth chakra, the heart chakra,rests in the center of the chakra system, at the core of our spirit. Its physical location is the heart, upper chest, and upper back. The fourth is the balance point, integrating the world of matter (the lower three chakras) with the world of spirit (the upper three chakras). The element of this chakra is air, which is why we feel breathless when we are consumed with love and when we have heartache. The health of our heart center registers the quality and power of love in our life.


In Sanskrit, the heart chakra is called Anahata, which means “unstruck” or “unhurt.” Its name implies that deep beneath our personal stories of brokenness and the pain in our heart, wholeness, boundless love, and a wellspring of compassion reside.


Being an even-numbered, feminine chakra, the heart center naturally yearns to release and let go. When we feel fearful, there is no room for love, and our bodies show contraction.


Some signs that the heart chakra is overpowering your life can include co-dependency, possessiveness, jealousy, heart disease, and high blood pressure.


Helping others, being of service, random acts of kindness are all heart chakra work. The most powerful way to open, energize, and balance not just the heart chakra but all of our chakras is to love ourselves and others. Give and receive love.

The definition of yoga is essentially ‘union’. At the foundation it is to be in union with yourself, and then others through kindness and compassion.

I know that for many yoga is a form of gymnastic-like contortions with their very flexible body. It is also another place to compete and to improve. I get it.

My practice used to consist of every inversion I could achieve and I strived for “perfection” in my pose. I sought out yoga to get more flexible physically and to perfect something that at that time I felt needed perfecting. What I did not realize was that I could achieve all of that physical/external stuff in the gym or in a fitness class.

Over time though I realized that while I can stretch, build strength, achieve amazing results and impress myself I was no where near union with my Self. I was destroying my body. I was seeking the wow factor impressing others ego based external affirmations. But mostly I was lost.

And then I found the true essence of yoga.



And this had nothing to do with how deep my back could bend.

This gentleman has been practicing yoga with me for two years. He could care less about a handstand because his yoga is union. It is allowing me to move his mostly paralyzed body. To look into his beautiful green eyes and wonder what he would like to say if his mouth would just speak the words.

True union.

Despite his limitation from a traumatic brain injury, this man shows up. He is present.

After our session, he insists on “walking” me to the door to lift his hand for a handshake.

That is yoga at its core.

More On the Brain

The other day I made a post about how essential oils affect the brain and I wanted to continue on that post today. Another way that essential oils affect the brain is through our smell receptors that travel up to the olfactory bulb. These smell receptors make direct links to the limbic system, a complex system of nerves and networks in the brain.

The limbic system connects to the parts of the brain that control heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress levels, hormone balance, emotion, and mood. Different chemicals in odor molecules cause different nerve impulses to be sent

Depending on the type and amount of essential oils used, different body reactions can occur. Certain essential oils trigger the brain to release specific neurochemicals such as endorphins, serotonin, and enkephalin. These substances reduce pain and inflammation, calm and relax the body, and create a feeling of well-being. This is why essential oils can be so helpful when using them aromatically!

You can use essential oils aromatically by just adding a few drops to your diffuser with water or you can breathe in the aroma out of cupped hands or from the bottle. You can add 1-3 drops to a tissue or cotton ball & inhale, and you can also wear oils as perfume or in diffuser necklaces to get the aromatic benefits!

Sometimes we forget that our bodies have the ability to stay healthy when given the proper tools—diet, exercise, sleep, reducing toxic load, reducing stress and more.

I love that essential oils play a huge part in my health—reducing toxic load, helping with sleep/stress, assisting with better breathing during exercise, flavoring my foods and giving my body a boost of goodness, helping to manage pain and so much more.

Oils are not going to cure anything, but they are going to help your body do it’s own part in the staying healthy. They are tools for your tool box and when used consistently and properly can have amazing effects. Plus it’s pretty darn empowering to take control of your healthy, naturally.

Happy Monday Everyone!

I love the end of one month because the planning for the next starts to happen.  It is such an exciting time for me and I am super happy about what I have in store for February! In my planning, I also updated my pages here so check them out when you have time.

As you know, I am passionate about wellness and living a life of intention.  My full time job purpose is sharing Yoga with people living with brain injuries and other disabilities.  I am blessed to have found my soul calling and love each day I get to show up.  When I am not doing this, I am sharing my other passion and that is offering tools for people to live a healthy and full life.

As I sat in my morning ritual time that includes coffee, journaling, reading and reflecting, I was consumed with gratitude.  My life truly is blessed and I feel so complete.

Thank you for being part of my fullness and my bounty of joy. Have a blessed week!
