I have had a ton of questions about natural allergy relief lately. I have put together this video for you about some options in natural allergy relief. I use essential oils and yogic breathing to relieve my allergies. I will discuss them both in Wellness Talks today.

Taking care of your self is one of the most important parts of life and your health. It is often the one thing we forget about too. The truth is if you don’t take care of yourself you really can’t take care of anyone else. So before you give all your time to everyone and everything create some time for self-care. It can be quick, it can be long whatever fits you best…just do it! Check out my Self Care List below and bring one or two or more into your life…
Children need water just as much as we do. If fact they are usually more active so water is more important to them. A general rule for children is 6 to 8 cups a day, throughout the day. More if they are out in the heat. Now unless you were lucky as a parent most children don’t want water, they want other things so lets make it fun. A Challenge!
We all know water is important, it’s the one thing you are told from day one. We are made up of 75% water and 85% of our brains is water. Needless to say water is important! Some say we need 8 cups a day others say we need as much as 15 cups a day. We could debate, I won’t do that though. Bottom line you want water every day and a lot of it. So why not do a Challenge?
Prenatal/Postnatal Strengthening will be all about preparing the body for labor and recovering after. Its nothing you cant handle though. And still safe for pregnancy. Here you will Strengthen legs and core muscles. Without an intense workout. Both are important for labor and post pregnancy recovery. This is an empowering flow and I love to do it!
Morning Rise is to open up and stretch out from the often rough night of sleep and to start your day clear and focused with intention. This one is great even if you’re not Pregnant. This is a sequence I do every morning before I get out of bed, yes I’m serious. No mat, it really allows me to be open for my day and my body to move freely.
Yoga and Pregnancy go very well together. Yoga can be gentle enough for a non-intense exercise or intense enough for a tougher workout. During Pregnancy there are all kind soft things going on in the body…added weight, less energy, skin stretching, and hormones are a wreck. With so much to deal with, Yoga is the grounding and stretching needed.
Some say you don’t need to wash your face and others say you do. Bottom line I feel if there is dirt or make up on my face I need to wash it off. When it comes to face wash, there can be some pretty toxic chemicals in them, Here is a list to look out for…Toxic Avoid List. So how can you clean your face in the simplest, easiest and natural way?
Yoga is a powerful practice. It is rooted in mind, body and spirit, connecting the three as one. A part of yoga is the physical practice, but there is so much more. I started my journey with yoga years ago and earlier this year I started a Yoga Writing Exploration. It is an exploration into yoga that I had experienced and put it into several posts for you. I have compiled all these post here.
