Change your Mind

By Jim Whiting, Certified Kripalu Yoga Instructor

Everyday it seems we are reading about some news or study presenting evidence that our mind is connected to our health. Our thoughts effect how we feel, and how healthy we are.

Tips for Letting Go of Stress

By Jim Whiting, Certified Kripalu Yoga Instructor

Allow Change

Ever try to capture a moment and put it in a bottle, or try to stop the seasons from changing? It just can’t be done. The simple truth is that everything of this world is subject to change. Change is the only constant. You are subject to change. Your body changes, your circumstances change. You are quite literally not the same person you were a year ago, physically, emotionally or in your life circumstances. With all this change we have the choice of moving with the flow of change or resisting it.

“Be the Change You Want to See in the World” - Mohandas Gandhi

By Jim Whiting, Certified Kripalu Yoga Instructor

The seasons are shifting and more change is on the horizon. To resist change is to invite suffering, to surrender to change is to open ourselves to endless possibility.

What Moves Your Heart?

By Jim Whiting, Certified Kripalu Yoga Instructor

Often we hear the expression “Home is where the heart is”. These are wise words that ring with truth. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner I can’t help but wonder if we wouldn’t be better served by asking ourselves what moves our hearts?

The Season of Abundance

By Jim Whiting, Certified Kripalu Yoga Instructor

The holiday season has become synonymous with abundance, starting with the festive meal of Thanksgiving, the many gifts of Christmas, and the lavish celebration of New Year Eve. All of these are certainly forms of abundance. But, without the abundance that resides within, all material forms that we manifest in our lives are meaningless.

Why Yoga Makes You Feel Better

By Jim Whiting, Certified Kripalu Yoga Instructor

Everyone knows stretching and exercise are healthy ways to feel better and to get into shape. After a yoga class you feel better than when you came. This is because of something called the parasympathetic nervous system. When we do yoga, we activate the parasympathetic nervous system through stretching and breathing. The parasympathetic nervous system is responsible for slowing down our bodies through muscle relaxation, calming the mind, and results in better digestion, better immunity, lower blood pressure and lower heart rate.
