Podcast Ep 10: Yoga to Connect with Fire and Air in Eagle Pose

When the Eagle card from Kim Krans’ The Wild Unknown Animal Spirit deck came up today I was taken by surprise. I’ve been battling depression and anxiety, partially seasonal and partially due to dread and helplessness over the imminent destruction of the National Butterfly Sanctuary for a section of unneeded wall on the southern border of the U.S. Lifting to meet Spirit like Eagle felt impossible while I was feeling heavy. But the Universe knows that if I get into my body and start to break apart an asana, I can shift out of feeling powerless, even if it’s just for a little while. I dropped into Garudasana (Eagle pose) and broke it down for you, focusing on the interplay between the fiery core work and keeping your heart open for air, in a 40-ish minute practice. You won’t need anything but your mat.

Podcast Ep 09: Yoga to Explore Spirals

To open this episode, I pulled the “Spiral” card from Alberto Villoldo’s Mystic Shaman Oracle deck. Spirals are very present in Shamanic Reiki and in yoga – as we create spirals in our physical body that reflect the energetic spirals that exist. Explore the spiral with me as a symbol of our spiritual growth cycles and in a 40-minute yoga practice. You’ll be doing some seated work to begin the practice, so please gather a folded blanket, cushion, or block to sit on if needed before you begin.

Podcast Ep 08: Yoga to Explore Your Perspective

I pulled the Milky Way card from Steven Farmer’s Earth Magic Oracle deck, which is about perspective, and how important it is to step back and see the big picture and to witness my experiences without getting wrapped up in them. In this episode I share how mindfulness meditation is teaching me to witness how I am responding – mentally and emotionally – to bad news about the environment and things that arise during a Shamanic Reiki client session. Then I’ll guide you through a 30-ish minute yoga practice to explore different perspectives. You won’t need anything but your mat for this one.

Podcast Ep 07: Grounding Yoga Practice

I’m back to my somewhat revised podcast with a grounding yoga practice. I’ll share a bit of what I’ve been doing in the months since I last recorded an episode, then guide you through a short yoga practice to help you connect to the Earth element in your body and to feel more grounded. You won’t need anything but your yoga mat for this practice.
