Channeling is a form of moving into the present moment and drawing in the energy you need. When we are in an alined, centred, grounded state we all have access to this gift. When we channel for ourselves we tune in to what we need and bring forth the energy from the earth and sky above to help us move forward on our journey. This experience happens more and more for us as we fine tune our bodies and brains to let go of aversion and attachment and begin to be more in the present movement.

What is an Intention?

An Intention is a word or a phrase that will move your energy in a positive direction. When you use an intention, you can bring your focus and mind back to that word. It helps with cultivating attention in the way that it gives the wandering mind something to focus on. When the mind has something to focus on it will teach itself to relax and stay in the moment. When exploring intentions, think of words that have a positive impact on your emotions. What makes you feel happy and uplifted? This process is twofold. An intention has a direct impact on your energy through emotions and the practice of repeating your intention allows you to stay with what comes up while repeating the intention.

An Intention can be;

  • A heartfelt word,
  • A sentence or phrase that moves your energy in a positive direction but without attachment to an outcome
  • Also known in yoga nidra as a Sankulpa.

When healing begins to open your channels you move into this raw state. If you can stay present you begin to observe as a witness of your patterns. With a practice in heartitudes you begin to find compassion for your pain and suffering and begin to heal more deeply. Healing more deeply you begin to feel more connected to your true centre.

To learn more about the heartitudes tune in tomorrow.

In Buddhism, Bodhisattva (/ˌboʊdɪˈsʌtvə/ BOH-dih-SUT-və) is the Sanskrit term for anyone who, motivated by great compassion, has generated Bodhicitta, which is a spontaneous wish and a compassionate mind to attain Buddhahood for the benefit of all sentient beings.

As a Yin Yoga Teacher, I’m often asked the question, “When is the best time to practice Yin Yoga? The short answer is ANYTIME. Honestly anytime you can practice Yin, you are benefiting yourself in so many ways, physically, emotionally, mentally and energetically. However, many students feel that because the practice offers a calming effect while stretching out the tissues of the body, that the practice is best suited for the evenings. In many yoga studios, Yin Yoga is mostly offered in the evenings. While it is certainly beneficial to practice Yin Yoga in the evening to help unwind ourselves from the long work day, Yin Yoga is equally beneficial practiced during the daytime. Here is why I say a daytime practice is a great option.

During the day, we spend a significant amount of time sitting at desks in front of a computer, overstimulated by technology and by people. We need an opportunity to break free from that to reset and recharge our bodies and our minds. We also need time to stretch out our bodies from those long sits at the desk.

A practice of Yin at lunch time can be very invigorating, energizing and recharging to our nervous system, our bodies and our minds when the appropriate types of Yin poses are offered. Poses such as backbends, hip opening lunges and twists which stimulate and recharge us are great options and offer us the benefits of increased flexibility and a more focused mind. Whereas, forward folds which tend to be more calming and relaxing are not always the best options for students who need to be getting back to work after practice.

If you have yet to try a daytime Yin class, I encourage you to give it a go! You will feel energized, revitalized, more focused and ready to take on the rest of your day with more vigor and less tension.
