Things We Tell Ourselves, Worth Repeating.

Things We Tell Ourselves, Worth Repeating.

April 9, 2018

I’ve had some opportunities to get out of my “regularly scheduled life,” lately which has me thinking about stories. In yoga philosophy, there are stories that tell of archetypes having a particular experience, which we use as metaphors to understand our own experiences, relationships, and lives. In my other work-world of voice-over and music, there is a story and a mood to convey. And throughout our day, there is a story playing out in our head. This is the story that has the most direct and consistent impact on our lives, and believe it or not, our health.

Practice Project 3.0 ~ What Is It?

February 14, 2018

New Goal? Might Feel Weird. Give It Some Time To Sink Into Your Body.

NEW. What is new in your world? Or what would you like to be a new thing in your life? Maybe it has something to do with the new year. Maybe this newness is something you wanted, and maybe you got handed a life shitstorm and now you’re trying to deal. This whole concept of mind-body is often perceived as this nebulous and subtle thing that can’t possibly be that big of a deal, can it? But the more we understand the state of our bodies, and the more that we understand how much our physical “presence,” we’ll call it – the way we carry ourselves, and physically present ourselves – is affected by our emotional presence.

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.

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.
