Pack a Pause, Not a Punch

My latest podcast includes my yoga response to the Oscars, about the slap watched around the world. I share my editorial comment on Will Smith’s angry reaction to Chris Rock’s comment directed towards Jada Pinkett-Smith. This is a case create a consistent meditation practice, to root yourself in mindfulness and ahimsa, to arm yourself with the mindset of a peaceful warrior: to pack a pause, not a punch. I end this episode with a meditation focused on ahimsa, non-violence, by cultivating a mindset of peace and calm. Compassion and blessings to all. Namaste.

Spring Cleaning for the Soul! Applying the Niyamas, Saucha, to Purify and Cleanse the Body, Mind, & Thoughts (Spiritually Fit Yoga with Amelia Andaleon) Spiritually Fit Yoga with Amelia Andaleon

Welcome to Spiritually Fit Yoga! 🌱 This episode is about Spring cleaning, yoga style! The second limb of yoga is the Niyamas. And, the first niyama is saucha, which is purification. Beyond our typical spring cleaning of clutter in our homes or preparing the soil to plant our gardens, another way to practice spring cleaning is through saucha, purification. From Deborah Adele’s “The Yamas & Niyamas – Exploring Yoga’s Ethical Practice” “Saucha invites us to purify our bodies, our thoughts, and our words.”“Whatever form purifying takes, it always begins with an intention to “lighten” the load we are carrying.”During this morning’s session on Insight Timer there were students ready to release control, guilt, grief, the past, the future, self-doubt, etc. It was a powerful session to reflect on what mental and emotional clutter to clear out. I referenced Deepak Chopra from his book “Living in the Light – Yoga for Self-Realization” from his chapter on the Niyamas. I highly recommend this book and the Week 2 chapter as a Spring Cleaning practice.Read/listen to the whole context of Deepak’s book. There is no toxic positivity or spiritual bypassing.
