Meditation for Stress Relief

This month it's important for us to slow down our breath and let peace, love and inner harmony grow within us.  Sangeet, my teacher, shares that Yoga Master Yogi Bhajan often describe how our heads are so full that our hearts are empty.  When we keep our thoughts from consuming our minds it allows our hearts to fill up so that we may share with the universe and others from a deep place of tranquility and peace.  We accomplish this through slowing down our breath.  

Sangeet shares that slowing your breath to a pace of 4 complete breaths a minute will help to regain control over your thoughts, gain mental clarity and pull you out of reactive emotional states.  One complete breath is accomplished over 15 seconds (inhale for 5 seconds, hold for 5 seconds and exhale for 5 seconds).  Sangeet often shares using this breath will help to “keep the freak in!” and not let that freak out.  This breath will help create your sanctuary, allowing for clarity and calm to prevail and let your loving heart grow within you and touch those around you. Per Sangeet’s suggestion try this breath for 5­-7 minutes a day, at least twice a day, every day.

This month I share with you a meditation that uses this exact breath pattern called “Stress Relief and Clearing the Emotions of the Past” from the book, I am a Woman - Creative, Sacred, Invincible.   Feel free to use the video and meditate with me this month.

Happy Birthday to Yogi Bhajan

Happy Birthday to Yogi Bhajan, my beloved teacher!

I woke up this morning at 2:45am to make it to the new incredible yoga studio RAMA Boulder.  There was a special morning sadhana with Sukhraj (Trista) and Guru Jagat who is honoring us from California (RAMA Venice) to celebrate and honor Yogi Bhajan's Birthday.  Sadhana began this morning at 3:30am with recitation of Japi then at 4:00 am we joined the simultaneous worldwide Guru Ram Das Chant, followed by a Kundalini Yoga warm-up set and a 2 1/2 hour chant of Long Ek Ong Kars.  

The combination of being Yogi Bhajan's birthday today, all the work that went into the opening of the new RAMA Boulder studio and the Kundalini Yoga community in Boulder coming together, it was a powerful morning Sadhana.  RAMA Boulder is instantly becoming a place where our community can come to celebrate, learn and grow together.  All week there are special classes with the full schedule beginning on Monday August 31, 2015.  Please come and enjoy one of the many classes taught by Sukhraj, myself and other incredible teachers.   Please check out the  RAMA Boulder Schedule and I hope to see you in one of my classes.  

I am truly blessed to have found the practice of Kundalini Yoga.  It has changed my life to have learned this incredible technology that was brought to us by Yogi Bhajan.  I have had the honor of learning from the best teachers here in Boulder, in Phoenix, and now from Venice, California.  I have made so many friends through this experience and truly feel a part of a community.  My body, mind, soul, and heart have opened to who I am, the strengths and gives I hold,  my path in this world, and all the the miracles that surround me.  

Happy Birthday Yogi Bhajan and thank you!

Sat Nam


One who loves, loves all not the one. When you love, all the one loves you because you are the one. Learn to love and love has no territory. Who has territory has not learned love because how can unlimited become limited. Love is God my dear, God is love and God and love cannot be separated. With love you find God. And how can you be limited and be God. Because God is unlimited. But in our limited life, with our jealousies and insecurity we want we to be loved alone and none else. We want to be respected alone, and none else. Only those shall be respected who respect all. Those shall be loved who love all. Those shall be given who give all. Those will have the share who share with all.
