It's been said that prior to a great learning or insight there is often confusion, chaos and fear. These feelings of fear and discomfort push us to make a change. During this time we hopefully learn the lesson life was hoping to teach us. If not the pattern of discomfort usually repeats itself until we finally "get it", surrender to fear and make a change.
At some point in our life we all encounter change and during the change, we often experience fear of the unknown. It is how we act during these periods of fear and change that shapes our present moments and our future. A Yoga Asana practice with Pranayama (breath work) and Meditation will help to guide you through these periods, as if you were riding gentle rolling waves of comfort and discomfort. Taking care of yourself, and remaining grounded gives you tools to handle these unexpected events with ease, and release whatever is not serving you. Without these tools and teachers we find ourselves in turbulent storms without a navigation system.
This leads to greater anxiety, stress, pain and greater fear, fueling a dysfunctional cycle that leads us away from our goals of peace, happiness and love. Allow me to guide you during private sessions, classes and workshops to learn more about yourself and how to ride the waves of your life with grace, even when you find yourself in rough waters.

Supta Baddha Konasana is one of my favorite poses to help ground tduring chaos and change. Opens the heart, chest, hips and stabilizes the mind. Perfect restorative pose to relax, or ease into breath work and meditation. Make sure you are supported, and your neck, low back and hips feel comfortable. Use as many blocks, pillows and blankets as needed. The picture below is a basic set up for under the spine. You can use a strap, or blankets under the ankles and hips. Stay for 1 minute or 20.
