The Healing Power of Yoga
by Kate P Smith

There are many health benefits that can be achieved through practicing yoga. Not only does it promote flexibility, strength, balance and provide a fantastic physical workout, but it is one of the few exercise regimes that can have a huge influence on our mental state. Learning yoga techniques and postures can help you achieve mental clarity, focus, relaxation and overall emotional balance.

A huge cause of many Western illnesses is stress. Stress can lead to many serious illnesses, such as irritable bowel syndrome, high blood pressure, weakness of the immune system, and even strokes and cardiovascular disease. Most commonly, sufferers can develop anxiety, depression, OCD and loss of concentration. Yoga's ability to combat stress is well recognised, not only by yoga practitioners, but also by many health professionals.

The response of the nervous system to life's problems can trigger stress in our metabolism. The body's reaction to this process is known as the 'fight or flight' response - the mind and body, faced with 'danger', prepares to either run or stay and fight. Physically, this can manifest itself through increased heart rate, elevated blood pressure, tense muscles and shallow breathing. Internally, blood flow to internal organs and processes that are not vital at that time (such as digestion), are shut down. While this can be beneficial during times of danger in the short term, long term the body has less resources to function properly. When stressed, even the smallest of problems can trigger this response, leaving you feeling tense and drained for long periods of time.

What yoga essentially does is harmonise the body with the mind. The practice of yoga and meditation techniques works remarkably to achieve this harmony, enabling the mind to work in sync with the body. Yoga reduces the harmful effects of stress factors on the body, be lessening the 'fight or flight' response through breathing and relaxation techniques. It also promotes positive thinking, enabling you to view adverse factors as challenges rather than fears. This allows the mind to focus on finding solutions, rather than creating worry.

There's no doubt that yoga can offer tremendous benefits to your own life and wellbeing, both physically and mentally.

Women's Sacred Circle
5th annual Women's Sacred Circle Retreat in Yelapa.
Circle facilitated by Linda Wolf (For Linda's bio, click here).
Yoga practice led by the sublime Kayla Black).

Sacred Circle is one of the ineffables - what is most important and essential about Sacred Circle comes from shared feelings, emotions, life stories, and experiences developed in a deepening relationship to ourselves and each other, created by honoring everyone's humanity and agreements we make to hold confidentiality, non-judgment, complete support for the other, and take radical responsibility for all our perceptions. This is how we create "safe space" -- a space within which we can be intimate, authentic, and share even that which we feel will turn people away from us. It is there that we discover total self-love and the experience that we are whole, beautiful, worthwhile, and wanted exactly for who we are and where we're at. This is one of the most healing experiences we can give each other on this planet. Out of this, we discover that we are worth everything and truly have the power to choose what serves us, and recognize what our hearts truly long for.

"Women's Circles are a place where the collective wisdom of each woman surfaces from the inside out principally
because each participant contributes to the creation of a safe space, where each member knows she will be heard
and whatever she has to share will be honored." Peacexpeace

Miso-Glazed Peas and Carrots (4 servings)

This sweet, salty and tangy twist on the old standby vegetable combo is sure to please the whole family.  Plus is has 180% RDA of Vitamin A.

Ingredient List

3 tablespoons miso, preferably white (see Ingredient note)
1 tablespoon mirin
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
2 cups thinly sliced carrots, fresh or frozen
1/4 cup water
2 cups frozen peas (8 ounces)


1.  Combine miso, mirin, vinegar, ginger and oil in a small bowl.

2.  Place carrots and water in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender-crisp, about 5 minutes.

3.  Stir in the miso mixture and peas; cook, stirring occasionally, until the peas are heated through and the sauce is slightly thickened, about 3 minutes.

Ingredient Note: Miso: Fermented bean paste made from barley, rice or soybeans used in Japanese cooking to add flavor to dishes, such as soups, sauces and salad dressings. Miso is available in different colors; in general, the lighter the color, the more mild the flavor. Look for miso alongside the refrigerated tofu in the supermarket. It will keep, in the refrigerator, for more than a year.
