Controlling Your Stress Level

My dear Yogis and Yoginis,

I believe we all experiencing increasingly more stress in our lives. There are different kinds and levels of stress that are triggered by
various situations, people, circumstances etc.
Some is more or less brought onto us, but there is also the one
we inflict on ourselves.
For the first one, we can find ways to reduce and release the stress.
We all approach, deal and conquer it in multiple ways.

Fact is that permanent stress is depleting us physically and mentally; robbing us of our health.

The self inflicted stress we can stop; and the first step is awareness.
How often do we worry about things that haven’t happened yet?
When our brain gets into that cycle it will find the next thing to worry about or be afraid of.
Unpleasant feelings that become emotions of fear, worry, anxiety etc. are evoked by our habitual thought loops.
Awareness enables us to actively stop that thought process. Like Mel Robbins would suggest to count backwards 5-4-3-2-1 – letting it go.

Early morning walks in nature have always been helpful for me to bring more consciousness to my mind and slow it down. That doesn’t mean that no stressful thoughts are arising.
Recently I started to lovingly stop them in their tracks and let them go before engaging emotionally.
To me it was very freeing and empowering to feel and see that I do have a choice.

Find Your Way

My dear Yogis and Yoginis,

Most of my inspirations for the weekly themes I get on my walks with my dog. I am a person who doesn’t like to go the same way back or
always wants to explore new paths.
There are also days where I just choose ways that I have gone before and are familiar. Then I know how long it takes and there is some comfort in the known as well.
What kind of person are you when it comes to walks in nature?
Venturing out is exciting, keeps you more alert and you might trip or fall, because the path has become more challenging than expected;
you just dust yourself off and keep on going.
Maybe you run into an dead end. You will turn around and make a note to yourself for the next time.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful and enriching if we would live our life and choose our paths in life in this same rather simple way?
Yes, doing always the same things, going to the same places and
walking the same ways is easy, comfortable
and we know what to expect.
On the other hand the unknown has so much more potential,
sets creativity and energy free that I think it is worth it to go off the
beaten path once in a while 🙂

That brings me to the beauty of practicing vinyasa flow yoga
and my mission.
I try to provide different ways for you to get into various asanas that you don’t find yourself in a “dead end” or may find an easier the way for you and your body.
It’s the transitions – the way in and out of postures – that keep you more in the moment. Sometimes you surprise yourself with what is possible if you keep your mind open or just listen to your body!

Values & Expectations

My dear Yogis and Yoginis,

I believe we all have our core values by which we live.
We might re-evaluate them during a lifetime, because of experiences, growth and different chapters in life.
Most likely we surround ourselves with people who live by the same values to feel more stability, trust and having a support system.
If they don’t match anymore we probably go separate ways. I think it is important to have them as corner posts on our path.

On the other hand, have you ever notice when it comes to
expectations things get messy.
There are the expectations we have of ourselves we want to live up to and the ones we project on other people. We set ourselves up for pain from disappointment and failure.
What if we could free ourselves from any expectations?
Instead we could be delighted or simply pleasantly surprised by what is happening or not! It might even reduce some pressure and stress in our lives 😉

Balancing Strength & Flexibility

My dear Yogis and Yoginis,

learning something new is scientifically proven to help making new connections in your brain.
This has more than one benefit for mental health and aging.
Often we have to overcome a lot of resistance to consider doing
something new. It takes a certain openness/flexibility to consider it as well as a willingness/strong mind to flow through with it.

I have found that the same thing applies to yoga. Some people have the focus in their practice on mostly strength and some just on flexibility, because it is easier for them.
In a well balanced practice or class you will practice both equally.
In the end it is not about being good in one or the other.
It is about simply doing it to create a healthy, happy and balanced
body and mind.
