When making healthy lifestyle changes, most people only consider what foods they should and shouldn’t be eating…
Hi! Dr. Cori here. I'm so excited you decided to join me on the blog. I love to write posts that inspire you to be more intentional about your health, mindset, and lifestyle. I'll also help you master what you need to know to prevent, manage, and reverse diabetes, all while still enjoying your life and not wasting your time being preoccupied with the food you eat. No more sacrificing your health to have the life you want!
It’s another episode of Wellness Wednesday! And Dr. Cori is explaining the impact yoga can have on your life both on and off the mat. It is often misunderstood that yoga is simply another form of exercise that emphasizes stretching when in fact, that is only 1/8 of the yoga experience. So listen in to this episode on how you might be underestimating the impact yoga can have on your life.
It kind of bugs me when people refer to yoga as exercise. It’s so much more than that. In fact asana, the actual postures people refer to as “exercise”, is only one of the 8 limbs of yoga. That means there are 7 other ways to practice yoga. If you study the root of the word yoga, it means to yoke or to unite.
This past week, in my yoga class, we talked about the discipline of sadhana, the first Yoga Sutra in the second chapter of the Yoga Sutras text written by Sage Patanjali. The Yoga Sutras or in English, Verses on Yoga, are a scripture of 196 sutras (verses) that represent the Philosophy of Yoga.
I recently started my 300-hour Yoga Teacher Training. You might remember I completed my 200-hour training this past May. There is so much still to learn so I couldn’t help but do another training. I’m a little bit of a nerd in that way…The initial phase of my training is focused on teaching yoga therapeutics, which is a type of yoga focused more on the clients than the practice. It’s designed for students with specific conditions for whom we design a yoga session that’s tailored to their specific needs.
It’s the second post in my “Yoga Can” Blog Series! This series is all about the stuff you never knew yoga could do. And this week we’re talking about your genetics. Yes, yoga can change your gene expression! I think it’s important to share this kind of information about yoga to really broaden your knowledge and empower you to change your health. You have no idea how much control you can have over your health and your family history and how it will impact you in the future.
