    On the class.

    • Release toxic ties. Do you have toxic relationships, connections, dreams, fantasies, and/or attachments that are energetically consuming? Many of us, if not all, do. This online yoga class offers a meditation method to release ties with these people or things that are energetically exhausting.
    • Tap into your 3rd chakra center. The 3rd chakra is your energetic connection channel to people and things. When we are invested in people, we share energetic cords with them. When we are invested in toxic connections, it's vital to pull back on these cords, retrieving your energy. Learn to do that in this class!
    • Ward off energetic vampires. Energetic vampires pull on others' energy to feed them. These people are drama queens, manipulators, narcissists, etc. It's oftentimes easy to get caught in their toxic web. How do you know if you have an energetic vampire on your hands? Well, these people are taxing and exhausting. You may feel irritable and weary, because they (perhaps unconsciously) are triggering you. This meditation gives you a way to unplug from their toxic energetic field and establish energetic boundaries.
    • Use essential oils. Learn how to apply essential oils. Use the power of aroma to unwind and untangle beyond the thinking, logical mind.
    • Cut the cords...literally. In this online yoga class, you will invoke this person or thing. You will also call on your higher power or your own highest good to bring in positive, healing vibes. With that, you will create a hand mudra to slice these subtle, energetic lines you have connecting yourself to this person or thing. This is something you can practice again and again for each individual or entity pulling on your energy.
    • Learn your lesson. This person or thing was in your life for a reason. Thank them for teaching you that lesson. Then, in gratitude, release them:

     

    "I release you. I release myself. I release both of our spirits to move on...in gratitude, I release you."

  • Seeds of Intent: Live Creatively

    What exactly does it mean to live creatively? 

    levetation

    Does it mean you take it into the woods Thoreau-style? Does it mean you take your self and practice to an ashram? Do you go off the grid? Do you quit your job to put your all into a business idea? Do you write a book? Do you travel? What do you do?

    Well, it could mean one of those things or a combo of those things or something entirely different. The thing is, you only know what it means for you to live creatively. I can't quite tell you what it means. No one can.

    To find that creative place, you gotta be brave and follow your gut. In yoga, we say that you gotta follow your intuition.

    But it could be that you don't really have a gut response going on at the moment. It could be that your intuitive body needs some fine-tuning - a little TLC if you will. If you haven't built up this intuitive body, journeying to that creative place won't flow so naturally. In fact, it won't really flow at all. That's where yoga comes in.

    To build intuition and fine-tune your internal compass, practice this creative, expansive Vinyasa flow with Ashley Turner to stretch your awareness and interior spaces to realize your fullest potential. In this online yoga class, focus on widening the physical and pranic body in every direction to take up more space and strengthen your aura. Also, explore the mantra "I AMPLIFY IN STILLNESS." (64 mins.)

    Living creatively isn't cake wake. Only hard work will take you into the wilderness of your intuition. Once you get there, however, you won't be disappointed.
