The fourth Niyama, or guideline for inner peace is ๐‘บ๐’—๐’‚๐’…๐’‰๐’š๐’‚๐’š๐’‚, which means Self-Study. This is the principle that encourages us to deepen our yoga practice way beyond the mat.

By studying our own habits and patterns we take a closer look at how our thoughts and beliefs shape our lives. We start to recognize what we really are and also what we are not, or do not want to be. We start to see how some of our behaviors donโ€™t really align with our true purpose and can even cause us harm. Maybe we have been following mainstream ideas because they are popular, even if they do not serve our highest Self.

This is why yogis are encouraged to reflect and journal often. Itโ€™s one thing to read about the path to enlightenment, but you reach a whole new level when you dive in and can apply the teachings. Your mind opens to new possibilities when you can look within with a deeper understanding of why you do the things you do.

Svadhyaya requires a new level of paying attention, being able to question and identify your own intentions. Most people avoid questioning their own actions, as it implies change, and that means more work, and we donโ€™t often like that! AND we know that change is inevitable, and you can either drive it or get run over by it!

50 million Americans have a sleep disorder. Are you one of them?

Sleep deficiency is linked to many chronic health problems, including heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke, obesity, and depression. Itโ€™s also linked to a higher chance of injury. So if you struggle with drifting off and staying asleep, follow these 5 rules.

#๐Ÿ ๐‘๐ž๐ฉ๐ฅ๐š๐œ๐ž ๐‚๐š๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐ž๐ข๐ง๐ž ๐ฐ๐ข๐ญ๐ก ๐„๐ฑ๐ž๐ซ๐œ๐ข๐ฌ๐ž ๐ข๐ง ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐Œ๐จ๐ซ๐ง๐ข๐ง๐ 
Trust me, you love your coffee way more than it loves you. You donโ€™t need it. You ๐ท๐‘‚ need to rise and shine and get your body moving to reinforce your circadian rhythms.

#๐Ÿ ๐‚๐ซ๐ž๐š๐ญ๐ž ๐š ๐’๐ž๐ซ๐ž๐ง๐ž ๐’๐ฉ๐š๐œ๐ž
Turn your sleeping area into a super cozy retreat. Use tranquil colors and block out excessive light and sounds. Clear out clutter. Invest in a mattress topper, soft sheets and a comfy pillow. This is your dreamscape. It should feel Heavenly!

#๐Ÿ‘ ๐€๐ฏ๐จ๐ข๐ ๐€๐ฅ๐œ๐จ๐ก๐จ๐ฅ
Alcohol disrupts sleep patterns. You might pass out initially, but you wonโ€™t stay asleep. Your body will have to work on liver detox instead of weight maintenance and healing. Plus youโ€™ll wake up in a brain fog and will not perform your best the next day.

#๐Ÿ’ ๐“๐ฎ๐ซ๐ง ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐๐š๐ ๐ž
At least 30 minutes before bed shut it all down. Stop doing chores and work. Turn off the screens. Stop the scroll. Make a warm cup of tea, grab a book, settle in and relax. This consistent ritual signals your brain that itโ€™s times to switch gears.

#๐Ÿ“ ๐๐จ ๐’๐œ๐ซ๐ž๐ž๐ง๐ฌ ๐ข๐ง ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐๐ž๐๐ซ๐จ๐จ๐ฆ
Hereโ€™s the thing, screens stimulate your brain waves. Thatโ€™s why youโ€™re so addicted. Keep them out of the bedroom so your brain can do itโ€™s thing and you can optimize your healing and growth.

By setting a healthy sleep practice you give yourself the best chance to reach your health and weight goals.

Can you feel it?ย  The seasons are ๐‘ โ„Ž๐‘–๐‘“๐‘ก๐‘–๐‘›๐‘”. Balance is being restored. The brutal oppressive heat is finally lifting and we are entering a new season of change. ๐Ÿ™

For millennia people celebrated the Autumn Equinox. It was harvest time, the fruit of their labors had finally arrived! The working days were shorter and they could spend more time with family and friends enjoying the beautiful autumn days. Why don't we do that anymore?

The Autumn Equinox is one of nature's gentle reminders of the circle and seasons of life. As the days and nights find balance, we too find balance in our lives. The seeds you planted, whether in your garden, or your health or career or relationships or elsewhere in your life come to fruition now. All the hard work finally pays off!

It's time to find balance and harmony in our daily lives before we enter the new season of quiet healing that the Winter offers.

So how can we honor this special time? Well obviously pumpkin spice is a thing!! Did you know pumpkin, all spice, and cinnamon were originally used to keep evil spirits at bay? So feel free to have another!

Every Fall, I honor the changing of the seasons and abundance of the Earth by taking my family for a farm visit. We spend the whole day navigating corn mazes, enjoying hay rides, and supporting the farmers by buying produce, flowers, and pumpkins! It's a wonderful family adventure that we look forward to every year. If you haven't gone to visit one of the local farms you should! There's nothing quite like a day in the country!

Whether you have practiced yoga for years, or are just getting started, watch out for these common lies instructors might tell you...

Itโ€™s just not. Every body has gone through a different set of circumstances and challenges. The poses will look and feel different for everyone. Do what feels healthy for you.

Do not. Hot Power is a deep toxic purge meant to be practiced quarterly, not daily. Chances are you will dehydrate and stress your Nervous System causing all kinds of health issues. Stick to Cool Flow and Yin daily.

Just no. With the exception of a challenging class followed by a stretch class. Otherwise itโ€™s just too much and will wear and tear your body. One Flow class taught properly is plenty.

No you donโ€™t. I mean you should lol. But how you apply the lessons depends on where you are on your path. Any enlightenment is better than no enlightenment. Think for yourself.

Most Yoga Instructors are good hearted and trying to help you. Some are just trying to fill classes. In case of the latter, roll up your mat and find a new studio.
