How I Fell in Love with Slow Flow Yoga
In our fast-paced society, slowing down is a radical act. It’s bold. It’s audacious. But it’s also where change can happen. It’s where we can nourish. It’s where we learn. It’s where we create. It’s where we integrate body, mind and spirit.
How the 90-second rule can help calm anxiety
CO-VID 19’s creating a lot of anxiety, fear, panic, uncertainty. We can use the 90-second rule to help calm ourselves and live a more balanced. life.
In 1996, Dr Jill Bolte Taylor suffered a rare stroke. As a scientist, she was able to observe the inner workings of her brain and make several discoveries. One of those insights led to the 90 second rule.
Take an Awe Break to reset and rebalance
Awe is the feeling we get in the presence of something that challenges our understanding of the world, like looking up at millions of stars in the night sky or marveling at the birth of a child. It doesn’t have to be the Grand Canyon or Taj Mahal. It can be walking through the forest, looking at a tree or in your mind – recalling someone’s smile, the twinkle in someone’s eye. Or being in the presence of someone you revere. I felt this when I heard the Dalai Lama speak in India.
“I’ve known Ahna for well over a decade and have the utmost respect for her. We’ve worked together professionally and as a dear friend, she has shared with me life-changing advisement on dealing with difficult work situations and in my personal well-being and health. Her advice is gold.”
“I worked with Ahna for more than one year. Although the physical distance between us is large, I felt as if she were very close and dedicated. Ahna is empathetic, and I truly felt that she understood me and my goals. I recommend her if you need somebody to listen and trust without judgment or criticism and, of course, if you need to find new perspectives and solutions to your life problems. I believe that today it is easy to find theories, structures and solutions. But what we really need, deep inside, is kindness, humanity, understanding and the freedom to feel our way and be openly ourselves in front of somebody. Ahna is that kind of coach!”
As a fan of Ahna’s extensive knowledge and innate wisdom, I’ve been an eager client of her holistic program. She is one of a kind who addresses the mind, body, spirit connection, to uncover the root cause and not just the symptoms of imbalance.
Ahna addressed my fluctuating energy levels with yoga, my dietary habits with Aruveyda, and my sleep, or lack of sleep, with yoga Nidra. Her knowledge allowed her to create an individualized and personalized program–just for me! She listens carefully, is very receptive and supportive, and best of all, has a wonderful sense of humor.
Your help has truly made a difference in my quality of life. Thank you.
I want to thank you for your coaching. Your empathetic approach and gentle questioning brought different levels of awareness to me. I particularly appreciate your ability to hear unspoken words by listening to the tone of my voice and then, check in with me so I was in the “here and now”, flowing through the sessions. I am sure other clients will benefit immensly, as I did, from your coaching and be empowered through self-awareness to make changes to live with health and vibrancy.
“Ahna teaches Slow-Flow Yoga at my healing center in Edmonds, and I’ve attended most of her classes. She is dedicated to yoga and teaching it in a way that each unique body can adapt to. She has a very sunny disposition, and a lot of that is due to the work she’s done to heal herself of illness. I wholeheartedly recommend Ahna!”
