The quickening continues! These first months of the new year are calling for us to come home to self through the body and commit to daily embodiment to stabilize: to quiet the mind, soothe the heart and listen deeply from a rooted foundation of body-mind-spirit-soul unification. Stabilizing in peace is the key to remaining strong, clear and to live from a centered state of being rooted in our power.
In response to the energies of these times, Merissa has realized what we need more than ever is to stabilize ourselves daily through the most basic, consistent methods in order to navigate our experience with discernment and peace.
Yoga means union. Let us unify daily to hold our peace and calm for ourselves, family, community, planet, and galaxy. Certified 11 years ago as a Yogaworks registered yoga teacher & Restorative yoga teacher, Merissa has been guided to return to the foundation of her own yogic practices to share foundational teachings of self-mastery with as many people as possible. The Yogis, Sages and Rishis of old have so much to offer us in the modern age, especially these timeless teachings of embodiment: the ability to master your open/clear/empowered mental and emotional state through breath.
Pranayama is a mastery skill using focused breathing to absorb healing cosmic energies (aka prana) into the body and switch frequency dials from the external noise/distraction/energy leaks to the internal connection with your Higher Self. Balance the breathe to then balance the mind and balance the body, all at the same time! Prana is life force energy, positive cosmic Zero-Point scalar energy surrounding us daily, which we can easily access through conscious intent.
Did you know the majority of people breathe shallowly into the chest, getting a tenth of their oxygen potential?! This shallow breathing causes anxiety to the nervous system which then adversely impacts our emotions and mind simply because our oxygen levels are low.
Using your breath is the most powerful, natural, safe & direct method to get back to center as needed in the moment. Imagine how consciously partnering with your breath has the potential to lighten up your entire life. Within minutes you will feel a shift in your mental state, heart rate, physically more relaxed body for a few examples.
