How to be Free: Breathe, Stretch & Solve All Your Problems

Written in


Take a deep breath in through the nose…
Exhale through the mouth. Aahhhhhhhh.

Yoga entered into my consciousness as a concept and into my daily life as a practice in February of 1993, 22 years ago. Mindfulness came along and shook up my life (and mind) about ten years later when I started studying meditation in California in 2003.

Now, I am certainly no expert and do not like being referred to as a “guru,” even jokingly. I do, however, have a lot of experience with and gratitude for yoga and mindfulness, as both a practitioner and a teacher. And I happen to love to write and share my experience with others.

So, while this book may not solve all your problems (of course, no book ever can or will), How to be Free is a practical, fun, user-friendly guide to starting (or renewing) a meaningful spiritual practice.

The e-book is available for purchase on Kindle or Smashwords, or in the EnlightenEd bookstore.

Here is one of the dozens of practices from the book, for your use and enjoyment!

Let go of negativity.

Notice signals of clinging such as irritation, anger or fear. Notice the ideal or expectation to which you are clinging. See the harm in holding onto this negativity. Let go, with love and compassion.

What daily practices help you maintain balance and mitigate stress?
