Free Guided Yoga classes in your home

Standard

Join me now on my YouTube channel where I offer you, virtual yoga classes. There currently are 3 classes available and one fully guided Relaxation class. I am making these videos firstly for my Purchase College students who are currently Distance Learning due to the Pandemic. However, many of my Yogini and Yogi Friends have asked about the videos and are enjoying them in the comfort of their home. Some people especially appreciate the Guided Relaxation where they can start the video and set themselves on their mat or their bed and experience a restful Savasana or Deep peaceful night sleep. During this unprecedented challenging time many of us are feeling anxious, angry, sad, unsettled about so many unknowns. If we can have a regular Yoga practice this helps us balance our minds, body, energetic patterns and in turn we can find stillness and peace. I hope you may make time to visit the YouTube channel, Yoga with Julie Broglin, or Julie Broglin. Please help me grow the channel and click the bell so you will be notified when the next new Yoga class is available. Please share the Free classes with your Friends and Family who may be missing going to their regular fitness, wellness classes. Know the Guided Relaxation is wonderful for All, even those who never have done Yoga before, even children. I would love to know about your experience with the virtual yoga classes so please leave me your comments on the YouTube channel. Take the best care, stay safe and healthy, Namaste ūüôŹūüŹĹ Julie

I invite you to have a private yoga session on YouTube channel, Julie Broglin, or Yoga with Julie Broglin

The seven chakras and their significance | The Isha Blog

The seven chakras and their significance | The Isha Blog.

I guess it’s because of the Yoga media hype that so many have heard the word chakras. ¬†This media has given a heightened mystical twist about the chakras and so many students, especially those new to the practice are so fast to ask about how they can know and experience their chakras. ¬† These are the same students who do not regularly show up for classes, are easily distracted and make excuses, fall ill over and over again. ¬†It is so amazing that the media can trick us into believing that we can “own” and master a phenomenon, which does not exist on the physical plane. ¬†Why would someone think they can access such an advanced stage of awareness when they have not yet decided to engage themselves regularly on the physical plane? ¬†To access experiences that grow cumulatively we must invest and dedicate ourselves on a regular basis. ¬†Just like the steam from boiling water evaporates leaving cooler temperatures when the fire dies down, our energies lose their vibration in a similar way. ¬† Only when we seek an authentic hatha yoga with the support and guidance of an experienced teacher will we be able to access the more subtle aspects of awareness. ¬†But hey, with so many distractions that we can easily become engaged in and possibly addicted to…who needs awareness…especially at the cost of having to divide our time or worse divert our time away from our distractions. ¬† Mediocrity is the norm nowadays and with it comes lower vitality until it ebbs away and morphs into illnesses from anxiety, nervous disorders, disease in various forms. ¬†The easy solution for many becomes medication that may give acceptable results along with toxic buildup. ¬†Why is it so hard to choose to make time to create ease, wellness and pleasantness for ourselves? Why is it so easy to ask the hard questions rather than sit and apply the easy practices that create Joy? ¬†Witness the silly monkey brain, jumping all around, never staying still for long. ¬†Witness the carrot and stick behavior we take part in: we can follow our job description in ¬†a routine fashion for days, months, years because it brings the pay check and benefits. ¬†In other areas of our lives we cannot easily follow regimes, why? ¬†Bottom line….doing the Isha Kriya is easy….practicing hatha yoga is easy…..knowing your chakras is hard….but the only way to get there is to make a commitment to staying on the path with your daily practices. ¬† Let’s start where it is easy and possible to gain mastery. ¬†Maybe you may experience the powers from the chakras, maybe not, but you will surely know pleasantness if you stay with your practices. ¬†When we choose to become conscious we choose reality and I choose to keep on the path with my practices. ¬†I wish that you too may choose to stay on your path with your practices daily….OM

Do click the link above to read about the many benefits for Tulsi. ¬†I drink it as a tea almost every morning and when in India I just use the fresh leaves, almost everyone’s home has at least one plant, ¬†to brew my cup of tea. ¬†Organic India has now in the USA many flavored varieties available in stores, in tea bags. ¬†When using herbs remember its like cultivating a garden but within your tissues and cells so it has to be attended to daily to keep the benefits growing in and around the cells. ¬†Don’t ever expect to reap the benefits with a single application, it has to be an ongoing ritual. ¬†Tulsi is a herb and doesn’t have any caffeine or chemicals (unless pesticides were used on the plants). ¬†Thanks to Lalitji for posting this and to Green Yatra Blog for an excellent post!

Our Bodies are 72% Water…Are you aware of how much water you really need to ingest to remain healthy?

Standard

images-1 BottledWaterThe Power of Water – Isha USA Blog | Be, Breathe, Blossom | Isha USA Blog | Be, Breathe, Blossom.

A while back while in an Isha Yoga workshop I watched a video in which Sadhguru explained about our bodies need for water. ¬†He joked about how surprised he was to see so many Americans walking around carrying water bottles and drinking all day long, he said in India when temperatures are often close to or over 100 degrees you never see folks carrying water and drinking like in America. ¬†This really jolted me to be true….I myself don’t carry water while at home in the USA or when in India, even while riding a bicycle at mid-day in India I never felt dehydrated. ¬†As a Yoga Teacher my studio’s rest room is in another part of the property and often participants are leaving during ¬†the class to go to use the facilities. ¬†I have tried to explain that one should not ingest food and drinks at least 2 or more hours prior to class to leave the digestive process dormant for yoga practice. ¬†I have explained about using Himalayan sea salt to help keep the body properly hydrated but still there are those who come to class with their water bottles and those who apparently have gulped water all along right up to walking in class. ¬†Another important thing that Sadhguru explained was about how disruptive leaving the yoga class is to a participant, previously I was concerned about disruption to the entire group and just wanted the individual to feel comfortable to relieve their system at the restroom. ¬†All of this got me to think again about how conditioned western folks are and how they are “educated” by the corporations who only concern is grabbing their dollars at the cost of their overall health and wellbeing. ¬†Several years ago there was some disturbing news that many foreign nationals had wrangled the rights to many major USA communities/towns/cities/regional water utility contracts. ¬†Around the same time the commercialization of bottled water sprang up and Americans were strongly advised to ingest at least 8 glasses of water per day…another industry driven “quasi-health” campaign?

Back to the basics…Water does provide for the necessary exchange for nutrients to reach our cells and for waste to leave via our elimination processes, but what’s the truth about the needed daily amounts? Just recently The institute for Medicine in the USA published this….”the vast majority of healthy people adequately meet their hydration needs by letting thirst be their guide.” ¬†(Please do click the link to see a short video with Sadhguru and Ed Begley Jr. talking about this subject a few months ago in the USA.) ¬†Many have been brain washed to believe they must always hold a water bottle in their hand all day long to ingest enough water. ¬†Hence sales of chic designer water bottles, bottle carriers and artisanal Waters from France to Fiji. ¬†For those who eat lots of fresh fruits and veggies (9-15 servings per day) they are getting lots of water as these foods are high in water content. ¬†In the video I watched in the workshop Sadhguru explained a bit about the science behind what happens to the body when ingesting too much water, and I can say I witness some of these imbalances (including unexplained allergies and more) ¬†my students who are always sharing proudly about how much they drink water. ¬†The Medical field is usually careful about what they share so as to avoid legal battles, so we may have to wait for a longer time to know the upside of this change of advice and its negative implications and havoc this trend has placed on so many who were just trying to take care of their health by buying and drinking water. ¬†At the safe side, Dr. Stanley Goldfarb, Professor of Medicine/Renal, Electrolyte and Hypertension Division at the University of Pennsylvania stated, “…if anything drinking too much water can slightly impair the ability of the kidneys to filter blood. ¬†The only people who should drink excess water are those who have had kidney stones.” ¬† I also want to add for nursing mothers like my Daughter-in-Law, Alyson who is nursing our Grandson Rowan, drinking water and herbal teas are necessary as you are sharing your supply with the Baby, so keep drinking up while nursing. ¬†As well, other conditions that one may be advised by their doctors to keep to a certain regime.

I think many who are aware about taking care of our Mothership Earth, that plastic water bottles are just damaging the planet and I recommend getting a water filter and a copper vessel. ¬†In the link there is print information and in the video Sadhguru explains about what happens to the energy of our water as it moves in pipes to our sinks. ¬†Once again, Sadhguru brings us back to think about the most subtle and extremely important points about energy consumption and how it affects our energetic levels. ¬†Another instance of modernization hazards, convenience of having sophisticated piping to bring water into the home vs. having to carry it from the well to the kitchen, but something beneficial was there when we had to do this. ¬†Perhaps now we can understand about how useful the time ¬†may be as our water is filtered and is stored allowing for the molecules to re-establish a harmonious level. Please do click the link below the image to see the information compiled by IshaUSA and the video, thanks again to Isha Foundation for preparing this really important information. ¬†Thanks for reading this post and please do share it with others, here’s to your good health, Namaste, OM!

About the importance of keeping our systems alkaline

Standard

Namaste, in one of the last posts mention was made about morning regimens such as taking Apple Cider Vinegar, ACV. I just wanted to share more about how this inexpensive product works wonders. I recommend the Bragg products as they are organic and high quality. When our systems become acidic from too much sugar, salt, caffeine, stress, medicines the levels of oxygen are lowered in our cells and the immune fighting powers are depressed. When we find ourselves acidic it is easy for illnesses like: sore throat, colds, flu, and allergies, Many other conditions may be reduced or eliminated when a regular daily regimen begins. The recommendation is to take 2-3 tablespoons of the apple cider vinegar and mix with about eight ounces of water. I use warm water, but some may choose any temperature and some add honey or stevia until they become accustomed to the taste. In about 6 weeks of daily intake morning and night one may find conditions such as: acne, artery plaque, high toxic levels, hunger cravings for salty and sugary foods, dull complexion, rashes and itchy scalp and athlete’s foot, reversing! For those over 50 the creaky bones become less as it helps removes crystals and toxins from joints, and tissues. Some may find the taste a bit strong in the beginning. Hopefully by learning about caring for the body at the cellular level one begins to appreciate what substances help to keep the energy at its highest. When the cells are fully oxygenated cancers and virus cannot survive and are eliminated naturally. The Bragg company hosts a website with a wealth of information as well as products may be ordered safely there. Health food stores also carry some of the products and usually ACV is available. It is a challenge to make changes and it is good to try putting a new regimen in place just temporarily. Once the benefits are realized and felt it is very easy to understand it better as it is then a positive experience. We learn and understand best from real experiences. The ACV is very inexpensive trial and perhaps just take two weeks to see if any noticeable changes occur. The only side effect for some is just getting used to the taste, and perhaps the taste buds will adjust to relish things that do our bodies good over other seductive flavors with little or no benefits. Here’s to your good health OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM. Namaste
