This simple pranayama can help charge your vibration and your surrounding environment. The key to this practice is to actually feel the charge of the heart.

Step 1:

Inhale and allow the inhale to pass through the heart and become charged with gratitude, compassion, love and kindness. As we being to feel this we can move it back into ourselves.

Step 2:

Exhale and allow the exhale to pass through your heart and  become charged with gratitude, compassion, love and kindness. As we begin to feel this we move this vibration outward.

What is gratitude? How do I feel this? Gratitude is a feeling of love and kindness for something that supports you. To be grateful means you appreciate on a deep level. A practice of gratitude is a great way to shift your brain into a higher vibration. To feel gratitude is to allow yourself to sit in this deep appreciation for someone or something. Be patient and allow your breath to bring about this feeling of gratitude. In the beginning it may not come to you right away but with a daily particle you will be able to find this vibration in yourself at any moment.

Children ages 0-7

Children can start yoga at any age. The key to the younger ages is just about the movement, learning the names of the postures, meditations, and breaths.  Introduction is the key.  The more they see the more they do.

Children ages 8-12

When children get to the age of  around 8 they begin to start hitting their growth stage, they may be playing sports for a few years so their muscles are tight and the stretch of the postures in yoga can be very beneficial.  This age is also the age where children can begin to recognize what stress is and how it negatively feels in their bodies and minds. We begin to develop a concentration and meditation practice to help children learn internal tools to use to balance these feelings and emotions.

Tweens ages 13-15

Tweens get their own category. This stage of development is all about what others think of me, how I can fit in. What and who am I? Tweens are really trying to figure out who they are. Their bodies are growing at a super fast rate and their hormones are out of control. At this stage many Tweens need to talk and be heard as well as move the body to move out all the excess energy. Mindfulness at this stage is one of the most important tools you can give your tween. Mindful Movement and a more movement based yoga.

Teens 16-19

This stage in life is all about testing boundaries and exploring the edge. The practice of YIN yoga for this age group may be useful and helping them learn about their physical edge and help them release things they may be holding from testing boundaries. This age group can find a great benefit in learning meditation and focused concentration. It is here where we can teach our youth to manifest and create the journey they want. Guided meditation will be useful tools.

Adult

This state we all will need different styles and practices based on our previous lifestyle. Were we active or inactive? Did we overuse our bodies from sports? Are we depleted mentally? Are we healing? Our previous life path will dictate what type of yoga we need.

Senior

This stage of life is very similar to adult but we may need many supports for that previous life path. Remember we have been on this path for a long time now so our body and minds are very programmed. Gentle, Restorative, Healing and Sound can all benefit this age group.

Over the past few years I have dedicated myself to my healing.  I have had amazing support for this process and would like to share some of the guides that have supported me in my healing.

Some days like you know will be harder than others but the universe never gives us anything we cannot handle. YOU CAN DO THIS!

Build your healing team and commit yourself to becoming your highest self living from the heart in everything you do!

Resources:

Healing with CBD’s

BLOG & Application form for your doctor

8 Week Mindfulness Training: This is a great resource to learn tips and tools we can use in everyday life to help us stay present and heal with the emotions that come up.

EFT ( emotional freedom tapping): This is a therapy which works with our energetic blocks of trauma once it surfaces.Certified Trauma Treatment Specialist Susan Ford, MSW, RSW

Physiotherapy was also a tool I used to help release some of the muscle tissue that held my trauma. Tatianna Graham is a master healer and does dry needling, cupping, acupressure and is one of the smartest people I know.

Chiropractic also was a tool I used to help realign my nervous system from the shock of resurfaced trauma.

Reflection is what we see after we have experienced it. Projection is what we feel as we are experiencing it.

Reflection is about the universe showing you what you have created. Reflection allows you to process and integrate the experience after it has happened.

Projection is how we feel during an experience. This is shaped by all our previous experiences.

Yuktis are yoga meditations for opening to the divine mystery within everyday experience. This Yukti has be borrowed from The Radiance Sutras by Lorin Roche.

EXHALE

At the end of the exhale,

Breath surrenders to quietude.

For a moment you hang in the balance——

Suspended

In the fertile spaciousness

that is the source of breath.

INHALE

At the end of the inhale,

Filled with this song of breath,

There is a moment when you are simply

Holding the tender mystery.

INTERLUDE

In these interludes,

Experience opens into exquisite vastness

With no beginning and no end.

Embrace this infinity without reservation.

You are its vessel.

To be so strong as a family that nothing can disturb our peace

To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person we meet

To make all our friends feel that there is in something special in them

To look at the sunny side of everything and make our optimism come true

To think only the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best

To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as we are about our own

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future

To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile

To give so much time to the improvement of ourselves that we have no time to criticize others

To be too large for worry, too noble for for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble
