The Brain Into Sections: One, Two And Three

The Brain Into Sections: One, Two And Three

October 5, 2017

At the end of August, I had the pleasure and advantage of attending the Integrative Medicine for the Underserved conference in Chicago. It was encouraging and inspiring to say the least, and I wanted to share a highlight: A presentation given by Patricia Rush, MD, in reference to the way the brain is constructed and deals with information (as specific to trauma in her work). The brain controls the body, so this directly applies to our yoga practices.

About a year ago I started thinking a LOT about what it is that gets a person going from, “I know I need to do more of XYZ in my life,” to “I’m so glad I have XYZ as a regular part of my life.” And it came down to this: Practice. There’s not really a magic formula. There’s no magic date or moment when you suddenly do the thing you know you should do, and you magically become the person you want to be.

I remember the first time I heard someone say that phrase in reference to yoga. It struck me how very ahead of myself I was. This idea is very “be here now!” However, we live in a very distracted time. So maybe a little demand on the current moment isn’t such a bad thing. For some of us.

Calley Bliss (Yoga Alliance RYT-200) teaches yoga with the approach that the science of the mind is intrinsically connected to the state of the body. Learning, and re-patterning that state is a journey of exploring our selves and our lives by way of a physical practice.

Testimonials

Calley’s style of teaching and excellent insights have transformed my yoga practice and deepened my understanding of myself and my own body.  Her thoughtful and challenging classes have helped me build an excellent foundation for my body. 

Robyn Tabibi, M.D.

I always leave Calley’s class with a great sense of calm, peace, strength and happiness. Calley has been a wonderful guide through this practice of yoga. Her classes have brought me an awareness of my body like no other yoga class has done. She has insightful and thought provoking things to say and a warm comforting way about her.

Calley’s approach to teaching yoga is adaptive and connective. She sees each person who comes to the mat, assesses skill levels, and looks to get a gauge of where everyone is, how we’re all feeling, on a particular day before settling in.
