Winter is on its way, be ready for all the fun by incorporating structural integration!
by Jared Power Deep Powder Turns & Structural Integration Summer eased into fall and winter is upon us, well almost. I share many of my clients anticipation for making effortless turns in deep cold powder as my practice is informed by my passion for snowboarding or as the French aptly say ‘Surf La Neige!!!!’ I love riding in the mountains whether I earned my turns on Glory, hitched a lift on the tram or I’m putting in a day on patrol at Grand Targhee. To be truly ready for winter means putting in a lot of hard work to reap the rewards. I demand a lot from my body both at play and as a practitioner. Related: Yogi mind, happy being The years of having fun have taken their toll with a resurfaced left hip, an ACL repair and a shoulder surgery. My self care routine includes receiving Structural Integration bodywork, swimming, yoga and easing out the kinks with a foam roller. I feel so alive and ready to meet the world when I keep on top of my routine with the benefits of Structural Integration bodywork being the foundation that keeps me moving and pain free. I understand how […]
Ever Feel Like Giving Up On A Dream???
by Carolyn Caputo It happened again! First the frustrations, then it’s the anger. Then before you know it this overwhelming feeling of sadness encompasses your entire body. You feel paralyzed by doubt and overcome with question. You fall to your knees. “Why can’t I just make this happen?” “Why won’t it work?” “How come the universe just never has my back?” You pray. You plead. “Please God, Spirit, Universe – whatever is out there, if you’re real what do you want from me?” Related: There Are 2 Types of People in the World You break down as your heart becomes heavy and the tears fill your eyes. You want to scream, you want to hide and you wished you’d never had tried in the first place. You feel like a failure. There’s got to be another way. There has to be something better, easier and more fulfilling. That’s all you want! To feel fulfilled. Accepted. Loved. Understood. When you come to the edge of all the light you know, and are about to step off into the darkness of the unknown, FAITH is knowing one of two things will happen: There will be something solid to stand on or you will […]
With The Last Quarter Moon, Comes Time To Rest
by Lyn Dalebout Star Signposts: Week of Last Quarter Moon October 22-29 Last Quarter Moon “Autumn Aspens” photo by Lyn Dalebout My post this week is on the mellow abbreviated side, which actually fits with our celestial landscape. The completion energies of the Last Quarter Moon follow on the heels of last week’s challenging Mars/Pluto conjunction (read about it here: Star Signposts) where one of the most notable astrological events of 2016 ignited or blew up your world in surprising, life-changing, even trail-blazing ways. You might make an important decision this week, or require rest and reflective time as you consider an important decision that is pending. ~~~~ Here is a description of the qualities of the Last Quarter Moon phase compliments of my friend and sidereal colleague, Nick Anthony Fiorenza at Lunar Planner: This phase completes with our Inner Needs surfacing to consciousness, to become aware of what is important to self and what is not. A sense of completion comes forth with a recognition that the past scenario has served its purpose and it is time to leave what is antiquated behind. Knowing now what our Truth is, it is time to consciously live it. Doing so provides a choice for […]

Yogi Mind, Happy Being
by Sarah Kline, photo by Heather Erson A recent Harvard study reports anxiety and depression are hitting epidemic proportions in our country. It goes on to say that yoga and meditation are proving to be two modalities that are helping. As yogis we know this, and we practice what we preach each time we step on our mats. Our world of 24/7, constant-go and in- formation overload is getting to us, and we are literally “losing ourselves.” So why would the ancient practice of yoga be helpful? Simply put, meditation or “Dhyana” is one of the eight essential components to a full yoga practice. The more we practice meditation, the more we stimulate and ex the di erent re- gions of the brain that strengthen and support our wellbeing. The most recently developed part of the human brain—the prefrontal lobes— are responsible for us being civilized, moral, peaceful and focused on quality of life. These prefrontal lobes also connected into the limbic part of the brain, which is our emotional super center. Scientific studies have shown that brain scans of long-term meditators show these regions to be thick and vibrant. Related: There are 2 Types of People in This World For someone […]
There Are 2 Types of People In This World
by Carolyn Caputo People who, without a doubt, have one passion that drives them everyday and others who don’t. They want to experience it all. Their interests changed as they do. There’s so much pressure… “Follow your passion, find your purpose.” “Follow your passion and life is easy.” “Follow your passion, the money will flow effortlessly.” That kind of talk used to make me angry. Those statements above might be true for SOME people. But, for others, it’s BS! How do I know? Because I’m one of those multi-interested souls who felt frustrated by the “Follow your passion” teachings.I’ve had countless, falling to my knees, experiences. I was begging, wishing, and praying for someone to give me a sign about what I was supposed to be doing with my life. Someone please tell me what my “one thing” was. What was I was truly passionate about? I had no idea. Related: Red Alert This Week, Be Aware of Your Willpower I mean, that’s how it works right? You identify your passion and do what ever it takes to be great at it. At least that’s what I was lead to believe. I knew I had fire, spunk, drive, but when it […]
