Yoga and Meditation for Correct Posture Thursday, 25th of December, 2014   Margaret Glatfelter

Through the practice of yoga and meditation, one learns to stand and sit properly.  Proper posture reduces stress and increases energy.

An aligned spine engages your abdominals, puts less stress on your joints and decreases muscle tension.  Lower stress results in more energy and an enhanced immune system. 

Proper posture also facilitates proper breathing.  Better breathing results increased oxygen supply to the brain and enhances your ability to think. The entire system receives more oxygen and life energy.  One benefits physically, mentally and emotionally.

During the day, mentally check the body and mind for tension.  When detected, mentally say the word - relax.  Hold your awareness there and breathe naturally.  Watch as the tension dissolves.

Margaret on Tools for Conscious Living Sunday, 30th of November, 2014   Margaret Glatfelter

Would you like to live a happier, more fulfilling life?  Lalitha offers practical tools and techniques for joyous living.

The human drive for happiness is one of our most fudamental and far reaching needs.  Yet it seems that few of us have unlocked the secrets of lasting joy and inner peace -  your true nature.

To live a full and meaningful life, you must be whole - inner and outer world must harmonize.  The goal of all traditional techniques and practices Lalitha offers is to to unite these two worlds - inner (para sympathetic - repair and relaxation) and outer (sympathetic - exertion and depletion). 

It is only when the entire autonomic nervous system is completely relaxed and balanced, that can we reach our full potential.  When  relaxed, we become whole.  Then the entire individual is present to succeed in life. 

This state of Whole Self Integration, full potentiality,  brings happiness, the goal of all existence.  When relaxed and balanced, one becomes natural, capable of living a useful, peaceful and joyous life.

Start with the small things.  Practice regularly.  Soon you will be doing things you thought impossible.

Margaret on Brain Health Wednesday, 22nd of October, 2014   Margaret Glatfelter

A healthy brain is a quiet brain.  To cultivate a quiet brain, observe the breath.   Breathe consciously.   Just be aware that you are breathing in and out.


There is a direct correlation between breath and brain.  When working with the thinking mind, we often begin with the breath. 


The breath alternates dominance in 90 minute cycles between right and left nostrils.  When breath dominance is right, engage in mental activities.  When breath dominance is left, engage in physical activities. 


Think of something you\'re grateful for.   Take three slow, deep breaths.   Give thanks. 


Breathe with awareness:  expand your health.  expand your aura.  expand your sphere of influence.


Through progressive relaxation, a yoga or union is created.  This creates a wholeness in body and mind.   The personality becomes integrated and natural.
