Bring your Blood Pressure Cuffs to yoga! Beginners Yoga in Nederland, Texas

Lower your blood pressure with yoga

It works! There I was in Mongolia, getting ready to teach yoga in a Ger (we know them as Yurts) and one of my students was asking if it was true that doing yoga helps with lowering blood pressure. That is what the studies say. Out she whips this blood pressure cuff, takes her blood pressure, writes it down and says “She’s ready.” Whoa! Okay in my mind I’m thinking, this one is a type A personality, and let’s just see what happens here. After an hour of so of some gentle yoga, breathing with movement, movement with breathing a guided relaxation–mind you, she speaks Mongolian, I do not–and then the end of the session. Out she whips her blood pressure cuff, takes her measurement. And MAN DID HER EYES GET BIG! She was delighted to find that YES, doing yoga does lower your blood pressure! So bring your blood pressure cuffs to class ladies and gents! Let’s get it lowered!

Meditation changes everything – Yoga Journal article by Nikki Costello

Game Changing
Meditation changes everything – here’s how to make time for it.

If you don’t believe you have time to meditate, you don’t.

It’s really a matter of choice and commitment, not time.

If you so choose, you can rest your mind in stillness even on the busiest of days.

Indeed, every day we find ourselves with free minutes – waiting.  We wait in lines, in traffic, or at the doctor’s office.

But often we fill this time texting, Googling, or tweeting.

Instead, with nothing but just a bit of intention, you can transform these moments into stillness,
equipoise, and relaxation, and experience the qualities of a mediator’s mind.

1. Stillness.  Stand more firmly on your feet or sit and settle into your buttocks and hips.  Breathe deeply.

2. Relaxation.  Soften your facial muscles; forehead, eyes, mouth, lips, and tongue.  Breathe freely.

3. Equipoise.  Free your hands and rest them by your sides or place them gently on your lap. Breathe evenly.

4. Informal meditation.  Notice how it feels to be present with yourself, slowing down and observing.  You are engaging with the first steps of meditation, which you can enjoy anywhere, anytime.
