If you fear inflammatory diseases (cancer, heart disease, diabetes, etc.), and want another tool to help your healthy body, try this.

If you have high blood pressure and would like a tool to help situations that spark your stress, try this.

If respiration problems run in your family and you want to know respiration mechanics that help to avoid those problems, try this.

When I started using breathing practices, I couldn’t take a full deep breath for the life of me. I knew that something wasn’t working very well even though I didn’t have asthma or heart problems. I simply had an old habit of breathing shallowly. Now, in addition to helping my health, I use my breathing pattern as feedback for my stress response and it provides immense power to deal more effectively with events that get me off kilter. I feel grateful to share what I’ve learned and feel confident that you will benefit too.

10-noon, $30, check or cash

Fountain Square 216, Bloomington

Would you like to:
Help your heart beat more steadily?
Relax even when you feel anxious?
Digest your food better?
Fall asleep easier.

You may have breathing habits that engage the fight/flight/possum response even when you want to relax.
If you:
  • gasp for air even when you’re not running
  • breathe shallowly even when you’re not afraid
  • feel as if you haven’t taken a breath in a long time
  • sigh deeply and then hold your breath for no good reason
  • have panic attacks and want to get a grip
 This workshop is for you.
In a power-packed two hours, we explore frequency, mechanics and volume of an easy, deep, effective, baseline breath.  You may be working way too hard for every breath.
If you practice 10-minutes a day for a week and it doesn’t help you, you get your money back!

I loved Cindy Bradley’s Feb. 8 Going Vegan in the Herald Times.  She and her husband experimented with a plant-based diet to cope with his digestion problems. The two-week experiment yielded a drastic improvement in symptoms of Cindy’s arthritis.  She was able to make a fist for the first time in years and swelling in her right ankle disappeared.  Not bad for a two-week experiment, considering the diet was neither difficult nor expensive.

So what happens at night? That’s when our bodies get a chance to do some housekeeping. We aren’t putting food in. We aren’t balancing on those small feet. We aren’t attending to every sight, sound, and thought that arises. So the body gets to tend to the effects of what we’ve done during the day, it gets to clean up.

My usual schedule is an early evening meal (6:00 pm) and breakfast about 14 hours later (8:00 am). I love breakfast and eat according to my appetite and energy needs. You might say that my digestive system fasts between the evening meal and the first food in the morning. The earlier you eat in the evening, the longer the fast until break-fast. Continue reading »
