7 Rituals to Transform Your
Day Into a Sacred
Householder’s Flow

1.
Instead of one long practice,
try 2-3 minute mini practice portals
that you can weave throughout your day.

You can set the timer on your phone to
remind you when to practice.

When you do have a few minutes of space to practice,
notice how resistance to resting or practicing may show up.

Be aware of what you feel called to do instead.
Is it nurturing, supportive, or healing?

Is your default mode moving you toward healing or
toward distraction and staying stuck?

2.
Use your least favorite chore as a portal to practice.

Chant, sing, or follow your breath while washing dishes,
doing your taxes, doing laundry,
or mopping the floor.

Use your resistance as a way to
turn the mundane into the sacred.

Any song or affirmation that is offered with devotion will work.

3.
Leave a small space in your home—a chair, your yoga mat,
a corner of a room, a closet,
or even your car—set up and
ready for your practice.

Begin to see every seat as a
potential meditation seat or
yoga nidra nest.

4.
Acknowledge your obstacles.
Let go of being surprised and frustrated when they show up.

Observe the barriers to practice that arise
and the obstacles that you place in your own way.

Be aware of which patterns keep showing up.

How can you shift something to create a new outcome?

5.
Decide what you are willing to commit to.

6.
Connect to the desire in your heart to
deepen your practice and let that be what guides you.

Even when you feel like you cannot “do” a single thing,
connecting to that longing with a sense of gratitude
that the fire is burning within you will support you.

Connect to it with gratitude, as opposed to despair
and disappointment that the desire has not yet been fulfilled;
know that you are moving toward it.

Connect with your faith that things can change.

Remember the cycles of nature where nothing is permanent.

There is a season for everything.

7.
Be creative. Look for the pauses, transitions, spaciousness,
and silence.

The day is full of natural transitions:
sunrise, high noon, sunset, moon-rise.

Use these natural transitions to remind you to pause.
When you pause,
you create a natural void,
so place a mantra,
an affirmation,
a bible verse, or a blessing for yourself
in that space to empower yourself.

These are the little Nidra moments that will
change your relationship to the practice.

*CHAIR YOGA"

IF YOU CAN'T
SIT ON THE FLOOR TO DO YOGA?
TRY MY..
.
"GENTLE CHAIR YOGA
CLASS"
_____________________________________________

CHAIR YOGA is a gentle form of yoga
promoting relaxation and proper breathing techniques
and is designed for “all levels of fitness!”  

Is is designed for those who may have
suffered injuries,are overweight,
or have limited range of motion due to aging
or disabilities can benefit.

It is also beneficial for those with many health issues including

hypertension, insomnia, neck and back pain, anxiety, depression, and
chronic fatigue syndrome.  

These “Chair Yoga” positions (asanas) can help
stretch your hands, wrists, arms,
upper back, hips, low back and feet.

These Yoga exercises will strengthen your abdomen,
deepen your breath, lower high blood pressure,
can eliminate stress with meditation techniques promoting relaxation
and may reduce the probability of blood-clot formation in your blood
vessels!

________
Namaste!
Namaste is a Sanskrit greeting meaning:    
"I see the Divine in you
as a mirror of the Divine in myself."

We use this greeting in class
at the beginning and end.

It is included in a practice called the
"Heart Salutation."  

Sit or stand across from your partner or instructor.
Bring your hands together in the prayer position pointed
towards the Earth.
Inhale as you raise your hands to your heart.
With a soft gaze and an open heart,
look into each other's eyes.  
Bow as you exhale,
looking into your instructor's or partner's eyes and
either say aloud or silently....
acknowledge the Divine in them as a mirror of the Divine in
yourself.  Inhale back to your starting position. Exhale your
hands back to the Earth.

As you move through your day, look into people's eyes and
say, "Namaste", either aloud or silently. See if you can
experience the "Divine within them." This practice can also be
done with animals, trees, rocks, mountains or anything else,
as we are all Divine Consciousness in form.
Notice how this practice makes you feel??? ....connected,
alive, silly,
alone or present?

"Be the Student"
by Carol Oveross, RYT

I can always tell when it’s been a while
since I’ve taken a yoga class.
I start to feel a little out of touch with
"the student in me,"
which can soon lead to feeling disconnected with "the students
in front of me."  

At that point, there’s really no excuse good enough, I need to
get my butt into a yoga class too -  
but,someone else’s yoga class!

I like to remember that even as yoga teachers
we are forever students on this amazing path,
I find it helpful to take classes …
to be reminded regularly what it is to
be a student.
I find it keeps me more ....
aware and compassionate.
