Your Body And Mind Will Be Grateful

PEGGY KHOUCASIAN

2016 has set its tone, and the holiday is so close we can almost smell it! Your body & mind are in need of a detox that will prepare you for the cold season & the awakening of nature. What better way to do it than through clean, nutritious, delicious food & yoga practice!

Vinyasa yoga allows your body to flow gracefully from one asana to another, dancing to the rhythm of your own breath. Every inhale enters a pose & every exhale deepens it.

It’s Like A Little Show You Play For Yourself.

You can make it as intense or relaxing as you want, playing with asanas as you practice. Sometimes your body might surprise you and take an unexpected turn, resulting in an asana you never thought you could perform or a feeling you have never felt before.

Being a dancer my whole life, my body fell in love with the creative and natural style of vinyasa, & it’s my favorite one to teach. This February, I wanted to explore Ardha C Ardha Chandra Chapasana & the way I like to enter it the most - through Natarajasana.

This transition is one of my favorites because it incorporates a little bit of everything - stretching, balance, forward bending, a little twisting & backbending. It brings new energy to your body, strengthens your core & opens up your heart, which all combined, detoxifies your body in a wonderful, natural way.

  1. Starting from Tadasana, the first step is to find balance on your working leg. Take a deep breath and reach for your toes. Push your hips forward and feel the mula bandha & uddiyana bandha working to center your body.

  2. From here, inhale, open your heart and pull your leg back & up, leaning forward & reaching with your other arm into a mudra in front of your face. Relax your shoulders & smile. Feel your center, and take 5 deep ujjayi breaths.

  3. On your 5th inhale, reach forward and exhale as your fingertips touch the ground diagonally off your foot. Open your heart & inhale, allowing fresh oxygen into your lungs & pull your leg behind your back as much as your body needs to fully stretch out. Stay for a couple of breaths and slowly com back to Tadasana. Now, of course, repeat on the other side.

Combining Yoga Practice With Healthy Food Is The Ultimate Way To Prepare Yourself. 

Give yourself that extra boost of energy we all need when winter fades away. Your body & mind will definitely be grateful for it.

Saying Yes To Your Dreams

PEGGY KHOUCASIAN

 

If money were no object, if age and physical strength were not an issue, if you could dream the biggest dream possible and make it be so – what would that be?

…did you just find yourself a fantasy-land with a magical snap of your fingers? I know I did! Sure, there are that likely won’t happen this lifetime, as in I will never be an Olympic Gold Medal Gymnast. However, on the other hand, why do we often quickly dismiss the things that we truly want to be doing as impossible? Here are a few thoughts to ponder before trashing something that is in your heart:

 

 Re-orient your thinking. We have to live in the light part of life, in an elevated life condition that dwells in happiness, instead of the part that automatically says it’s impossible. We may still encounter things in our environment that discourage us. But if you never open yourself up to entertain that possibility, that’s already a guarantee it won’t happen before you even try.

 In order to re-orient your thinking, surround yourself with positive things that make you happy. For me, to see things in the light, to live a life that raises my life condition and helps me dwell in happiness, I practice Buddhism, amongst other things. For you, it might be meditation, yoga, religion, swimming, listening to opera, eating healthfully, the mountains, or photography. Find those things and make the integral parts of your life.

 Remember actual work is involved. It probably will not be easy. Do the work, be patient, and don’t be swayed by things along the way that seem like they’re telling us ‘no. If we didn’t have to work for anything, we probably would not appreciate it. If everything we ever wanted came easily, we may not even want it anymore. If it were easy, everyone would do it. Right? And then what’s special about a dream that feels like you merely went through the drive-thru at a fast food chain?

 Challenges are under appreciated friends. An obstacle is really just a trampoline that lifts us where we need to go. Resistance is a force that pushes us or allows us to push back! It’s coming into your life to help you be stronger, reinforce what you want, or adjust your vision to something better. Without it, it would actually be harder to get where we are going.

 Consider the form your dream may come in. Be open to the possibility that it might not be exactly what you pictured, but it could also be absolutely perfect for your life. In other words, when it’s knocking at your door, your ears need to be open to hear it! There’s a saying in Buddhism that you didn’t come to this life to master suffering—you came to be happy. Dreams are a part of that fulfillment! And when you take care of that part of you, when you open yourself up to a process that may go slowly but is the path toward your true happiness, everything becomes possible.

{Breathing Through the Pain} Living in the Moment.

PEGGY KHOUCASIAN

“If you want to conquer the anxiety of life, live in the moment, live in the breath.” ― Amit Ray, Om Chanting and Meditation

Simply living life means you will inevitably acquire physical injuries and heartache. Pain is a misunderstood friend, though, as much as it feels like an ultimate fun-stopper! It tells you when there is something wrong. How else would you know that you have been hurt? This enlightened side to pain keeps us humble. It helps us learn. Through the wisdom and first-hand experience of dealing with pain ourselves, we also foster empathy toward others, learning how to nurture our loved ones through their own pain, as well.

Pain is also wonderful for incredible awareness of the present moment. Breathing into pain, in particular, lets you allow the sensation in so that you can feel it. Using your breath in order to honor and recognize what you’re going through lets you open up. You’ll probably unearth a lot of things you didn’t want to see or feel, and you’ll have to work through it, bit by bit. Sometimes even when we are happy, breathing through things causes old feelings to bubble up to the surface and cause pain when we weren’t expecting it at all. Double whammy, right? But I ask you: what is the alternative? If you have emotional housekeeping to do, it’s not going to go away by itself, and if you have a cut on your hand, it’s probably best to address it and wash it, right? Time can definitely be a factor in healing things, but your breath can be such a wonderful gift during this process. We can appreciate all the aspects of our lives, not just the good things.

When you get right down to it, we all have baggage and we all have things about ourselves that we have to deal with. So what if we have to work through a little ‘damage’ along the way? What is so beautiful about the human experience is that with all the imperfections we’ve collected along the way, we are all ‘imperfectly perfect’ just as we are. You’ve come a long way, baby, and we still have a long way to go, but everything about it should be celebrated as beautiful and perfect, just like you!

Internally Present Through the External Journey

PEGGY KHOUCASIAN

“And you? When will you begin that long journey into yourself?” ~Rumi

Ever been in a situation where no matter what you did, the worse it got? You keep spinning your wheels trying to make it better, but end up being more like a hamster in a wheel, spinning very fast and not getting anywhere. There are times when being this type of person, a ‘thinker,’ calls out all your 18 shades of crazy and you’re overthinking things, completely lost inside your own head. Unfortunately, the harder you try to shut down the insecure internal voice that operates out of panic, the louder it gets. It makes it super confusing to re-orient yourself in the direction of inner wisdom (and usually digs a deeper sinkhole). Booooo.

Outside of purely spiritual practices, there is yet another way of proactively quieting this part of your mind so you can gain clarity:  the physical. Surrendering to any sort of practice that involves your whole body can help calm your inner control freak. Turning our brains off for a while in favor of connection to our breath, surfing a big ocean wave, fully stretching in downward dog or feeling our feet moving in rhythm on a spin bike releases us by focusing on what we are feeling in the present moment. That is truly powerful. You get out of your head. Instead of trying to convince or persuade your mind of something, you take an indirect, active route to shift yourself into listening mode through physical activity.

Some of my very best creative inspiration for scripts has come to me in the middle of a spinning class. I have finished a hand-balancing class at my aerial school – only to madly dash home because a poem was suddenly bursting out of me, ready to be borne. I have been so moved in my sunrise ashtanga practice that I was quietly wiping tears away from my face during savasana, because I knew what I needed to change within myself after strong chest and heart openers during back bending.

Learning how to turn our brains off and be in the moment, focusing on what our body is telling us, is a simple backdoor entry to where our inner wisdom is hiding under all our complicated overthinking. Our bodies are a gift to us. They are here with us on this journey in our physical world, and they can lead us back to the internal journey with clarity and wisdom when we choose healthy ways to explore how we feel in them. The answers were always inside of us; we just needed turn off the talking and turn on the listening.
