How can you begin to create a meaningful mindfulness routine in your life no matter where you are, who you’re with or what you are doing? It’s easier than you may think….here’s a hint, don’t try too hard :)
  1. Only do one thing at a time…..it has been proven again and again that multitasking is stress inducing, inefficient and non-productive. This leaves you doing many things, however struggling to accomplish any one of those things. 
  2. Rely on your breath. It’s right there with you always. Big exhales carry away stresses with them. 
  3. Slow down and focus. Focusing on what you are doing, what you are eating, what you are reading will keep your full attention on that moment…….how many times have you heard people tell you, stay present.
  4.  Applaud yourself for your accomplishments, not what you still have to get done. 
  5. Allow your body to feel any and all emotions that come up or want to come up. If you’re feeling great, feel great and don’t feel guilty for feeling great. If you’re feeling crummy remind yourself it’s ok to feel crummy, the feeling will pass much faster, much easier. 
  6. Go play outside…..I mean play. Get dirty, be silly, swing on the swings, let yourself go. 
  7. Know that nothing is permanent. Good times or hard times, keep a perspective that this time isn’t forever. 
  8. Laugh, laugh, laugh. 
  9. Look for the good. Good can be found everywhere. When you find it, stay there. 
  10. Remove the things in your life that you do not need, are taking up space, are no longer serving you….release.

So there’s this thing called yoga. You are giving it a try. Your friends, maybe even your doctor have suggested you should give it a go. Maybe you have yet to join a class. Whatever it is, I am sure thoughts and ideas are swirling around in your head about what is and what isn’t yoga.

We have busier lives now than ever before. We live in a world that keeps us constantly connected in various ways and it is a real struggle finding any amount of time to re-charge, re gather ourselves so we are able to wake up tomorrow and start again. Many things throughout our day drain our energy levels, and offer very little if not nothing to re-charge them. There are areas in our lives we can look at though and see where the energy is leaking out from. We can then learn and practice how to build it up again.

Restorative yoga postures along with yogic breath work can shift the ‘stress response’ of the sympathetic nervous system to the ‘relaxation response’ of the parasympathetic nervous system – creating the inner environment for healing.

Invoking the relaxation response is an acquired skill and is fundamental to healthy mind and body. .

When the body is fully supported it is then able to let go of deeply held tensions and stresses, releasing into deep relaxation. This allows for healing, replenishment, restoration and a return to homeostasis.

The passive nature of restorative yoga makes it available to practically anyone. However, even the most seasoned and skilled yogi and yogini will benefit from a regular restorative yoga practice. The balance of an active asana practice along with the stress reducing therapeutic or restorative practice, create the state of santosha (contentment) we desire from our personal practice.

Take your practice a step further by learning the art and skill of restorative yoga with Calgary’s most senior restorative yoga teacher, Trish Robbins at her 3 day workshop. Through practice, discussion and hands-on experience, learn the art and skill of practicing or teaching classical restorative postures. This training is suitable for yoga teachers, trainees and health care professionals. The skills learned in this training allow for a deeper, more effective personal practice
and the skills to help others.

Trish is Co-Director of The Yoga Studio College Gold Yoga Therapist Certification Program and Calgary’s most senior restorative teacher trainer. Sign up early to avoid disappointment. Bring a notebook, a copy of Relax and Renew and your own mat.
