The Healing Power of
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
Women's Sacred Circle
Retreat in Yelapa.
Circle facilitated by Linda Wolf (For Linda's bio,
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
"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

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.
