shavasana poseShavasana
Shavasana decreases heart rate, blood pressure, muscle tension, and general levels of anxiety.  It increases energy levels, boosts memory, and stimulates the ability to concentrate. It gives you a more easy sleep and brings a general sense of well-being.

Yoga Nidra
Combining relaxation techniques with the unique practice of “Exercise Without Movement,” yoga nidra helps us travel deeply within. The goal is greater inner awareness of the body, our states of consciousness, and how the mind manages the body.

Kaiser for Stoke Patients

yoga_meditation_breathingKaiser has a regular monthly meeting for stroke patients. Last week (July 27) I presented a class for members and their caretakers. I explained what yoga is, and how practicing the “art of yoga” can effectively help with many physical and cognitive issues.

I covered topics, such as the use of the breath, and how the nostrils are a way to understand the relationship of the breath to the brain, then the mind, and the emotions. This understanding can make huge differences in ones energy levels.

Also covered the simplest of exercises called joints and glands. These movements were possible for each of the participants who were there, whether they were able to stand or sit. We used visualizations for those who were not able to physically move.

The participants and the social worker felt that the class was very useful and they had very practical experiences to take with them to use on a daily basis.

The Art of Meditation with Maryon MaassThe Art of Meditation workshops are meant to explore the dimensions of meditation- from body, to breathing, to mind. At the level of the physical self, it will help you find a quiet stillness. At the level of the breath, it will lead to an uncoupling from the tensions and negativity of daily life. At the level of mind, it will help you to learn to rest in a quiet center of being. We will practice a series of systematic exercises to train our mind to focus on stillness so that the nervous system and the brain can benefit for long term. A very practical approach to meditation.  Beginners and seasoned students welcome.
