March 2016 Quotes
A Little Space Yoga & Tai Chi
A flower’s fragrance declares to all the world that it is fertile, available, and desirable, its sex organs oozing with nectar. Its smell reminds us in vestigial ways of fertility, vigor, life-force, all the optimism, expectancy, and passionate bloom of youth. We inhale its ardent aroma and, no matter what our ages, we feel young and nubile in a world aflame with desire.”
American Poet, Essayist and Naturalist Diane Ackerman (b. 1948)

  1. Hello,

    Happy Almost Spring!

    Do you suffer from springtime allergies? I have found Restorative Yoga to be one of the best ways to soothe allergies and congestion and open sinus passages any time of year as it stimulates the body’s relaxation response. Practice lying over a bolster (choose your favorite position for 20 minutes) and then folding forward and resting your head on a brick or on a chair regularly. By just pressing the area between the eyebrows, you can relax the muscles in your face and open your sinuses. Try it now. Breathe and relax.

    You could also practice humming: )
    “Humming for sinusitis

    Sinusitis is a painful condition characterized by inflammation in the area around the nose. Up to 14 percent of people in the United States suffer from sinus diseases that can cause congestion and headaches as well as pain in the inflamed areas. When a person hums, the vibrations can decrease blockages in the sinuses. The action may also lead to an increase in nitric oxide flow. Sufficient nitric oxide flow is important for optimal sinus function, because it helps improve blood flow by dilating the capillary beds.

    In one study, participants experienced an increase in gas exchange in their sinuses from 4 percent to 98 percent. Humming is believed to lengthen a person’s exhalations, which in turns slows breathing and gives the body more time to extract oxygen from the air it takes in.”

    Tomorrow, Wednesday, March 16th, is the last day to sign up for this month’s Restorative Yoga class this Sunday, March 20th.

    Also, this Sunday, March 20th, 11:40 a.m.-12:25 p.m., in the Church Sanctuary, is this month’s Donation-Only Gentle Movement Class. Come move and feel better! Just a little bit of movement does us a lot of good. No need to sign up for this; just show up!

    If you sign up for the Restorative, come early for the Gentle class and move a little and feel better and then go upstairs and lie down and feel great : )

    Just comment here, and I will send you a Confirmation email for the Restorative. Again no sign-up required for the Gentle Movement class.

    Namaste,

    Nicole
