Sustainable Saturday - 03

This week with International Women's Day I explored a conscious look into practices combining mental and physical health and how closely related they are through the powerful teachings of incredible woman! 

I had the pleasure to practice with Guru Jagat twice while she made a stop in New York. A full immersion into kundalini yoga and reprograming the system. Guru Jagat broke down the programing we have been passed down from our parents and through child trauma. We then practiced  how to clear and open up space for new positive programming in the mind. I left feeling a complete bliss and weight released from within. I since have begun including a few very energizing and distressing practices into my morning routine, more to report on that soon! You can practice with Guru Jagat through her digital platform RA MA TV or Here.    

 The Class by Taryn Toomey  is one I have been eyeing for awhile but with a high price tag for a 65min class I've resisted but my luck came and this week after a post for a half off class showed up on instagram and I had to go. This class will challenge your mind and body beyond the limit we have falsely created in our minds. It will make you want to vomit and while also rolling over and playing dead. But by the end you break through the blocks and feel a new sense of energy and push come and you are ready to full complete the class no stopping. It breaks down the roadblocks in our minds to get out of the comfort zone that says no, not interested I cannot do this anymore and you are able to push yourself. It is one insanely powerful practice that I am not hooked on! She has locations in New York, Los Angeles and Vancouver if you live in these locations and have the opportunity  to go, GO you will not regret it! 

We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's book was the perfect read to included in my weekly round up. The 48page book that shows light on the inequality of women  and how powerful it is to stand up together. "All of us, women and men, must do better." Check it out!
