Four Step Intentional Process to Set Your New Year Frequency

Happy New Now!

Today provides another opportunity to dream awake!

If you don't have plans for the day, I encourage you to create space for reflection, visioning, centering and proclamation.

And, don't stress if you can't follow through today. You can create space within the next three days to dive into the following:

 

CENTERING

Just yesterday I received a text from a woman saying "I would like to find my center. I need help relaxing my mind. I do many things at the same time. I start a project and I don't finish it. This new year I want to be more focused."

Can you relate?

I ensured her that she was not alone and I recommended that she center with a daily HoopYogini practice, explore meditation with my Chakra Clarity album, and commit to a daily journaling practice as a way to process and integrate her feelings and thoughts. 

This is medicine that I personally apply and that my students and teachers have found to be highly beneficial as they navigate their full lives...

Wake Up Practice

Uncategorized Sep 05, 2019

How do you start your day?

Do you roll over and check your phone then hop up and prepare coffee as you run through the list of to dos for the day?

As a mompreneur, I cherish the first rising moments as the opportunity to review my dreams, become aware of my first thoughts and insights and to prepare my mindset for a fluid and effective day.

I know first hand how important it is to activate the day with mindfulness, meditation and conscious movement and so I’ve charted a simple and nourishing wake-up ritual that you can begin to implement in your life.

The practice starts in bed, transitions you to an upright spine and then connects you with your heart before you stand up and begin your day.

This is a great way to center and calm and bring gentle movement to your body.

I hope you like it. Comment below on how it makes you feel.

 

To increase the benefits of your practice, allow the hoop to become your assistant for wakefulness, centering...

The Yoga Block

Yoga blocks are an amazing tool to make challenging or uncomfortable postures more accessible. Blocks have many different uses and because of their shape, they can be placed on different sides to create 3 different heights. They can also be stacked on top of each other, used side by side—one under each foot, one under each hand, etc. Essentially, the block brings the ground a little closer...

Emily Wood Spotlight

 

How did you discover hooping? 

I first discovered hula hooping within the music festival scene. When I was 14 I went to my first ever Dead concert and from that night on I has hooked! I started going to festivals every summer. Gathering of the Vibes, Mountain Jam, All Good, Up North Fest, etc. While at Up North Fest 2008, I met a couple from New Hampshire during the Bob Weir and Ratdog set with a few Hula hoops. I watched them for hours until I finally picked one up. I spun in circles laughing and loving life for the entire Umphrey’s McGee set. I haven’t put it down since!

What do you love about hooping and what has it meant for you? 

I love that I can get completely lost within myself while hooping and at at the same time share myself with the world. Hooping is how I connect with my true...

Prāṇāyāma Jocelyn Meditation

The Present is a Gift. It is where your life lives.
In today’s fast-paced, screen-powered world, it is so important to have tools, such as practicing Prāṇāyāma, to draw you back into the power of Now. Something as simple as focusing on your breathing can allow you to come back to the present moment and back to the center of your own personal Universe. The more you bring yourself back to each breath and the fullness of the moment, the more you live your life to its fullest.

So what is Prāṇāyāma?

Prāṇāyāma (pran·a·ya·ma) can be referred to simply as breathing techniques and by extension, breath mastery. Some techniques can take years to master, however, some are accessible to everyone and very easy to learn.

“Now is where love breathes.” Rumi
In Yoga, the practice of Prāṇāyāma is an essential part of the “cessation...

Improve Your Digestive Health Inside a Hula Hoop!

Improve Your Digestive Health Inside a Hula Hoop!

When you’re waist hooping, as when practicing the HoopYogini™ From The Core Series, the hoop massages your abdomen to include the umbilicus/belly button, the intestines, the lower portion of the liver, some of the stomach and in the back, the kidneys.

As you deepen into your practice and increase your body awareness, you learn how to moderate the speed and intensity of of your hoop so you can choose the location of and pressure that the hoop applies to your body.

With this awareness, you can start to target and focus your rotations from broad to specific allowing an improvement in circulation, respiration and detoxification in your body, structures and systems. And yes, of course, to create more definition and tone in your muscles and body.

Returning to the more internal aspects of the abdomen and specifically the intestines, the following sequence will support the large intestine and the process of digestion...
