Sit in silence.
Clear your mind.
Trust your intuition.
Set your conscious free.
Be gentle in your expression of truth.
You don’t have every answer.
Guide yourself with courage.
The wisdom is in your soul.

Looking to deepen your meditation practice? It turns out that embracing someone in a mindful hug might help you do just that. Hugging meditation, made famous by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh, is rooted in the belief that a good hug can have transformative effects.
“When we hug, our hearts connect and we know that we are not separate beings,” Hanh writes. “Hugging with mindfulness and concentration can bring reconciliation, healing, understanding, and much happiness.”
Hugging is good for more than just our relationships. In fact, the scientific community has long touted its many health benefits. For one, experts say interpersonal touching decreases stress levels by slowing down our heart rate and production of the stress hormone cortisol. During cold and flu season, making time for regular hugs may keep you healthy, as they appear to boost immune function and protect against the common cold. Hugging is also thought to simultaneously calm our fears and alleviate feelings of loneliness. Remember that next time you’re feeling blue.
Since 2014, Yoganic Flow has been providing free yoga classes at Detroit Department of Recreation Centers throughout the inner city.
Patton Park Recreation Center located in Southwest Detroit was our first Recreation Center location. We love the Southwest community and are honored to still be offering classes in here!
Yoga classes are EVERY TUESDAY from 6:00-7:00pm
You might be wondering why we are posting about smoothies and things of that nature but little do we realize, smoothies and yoga go hand in hand. A smoothie before your yoga practice is defiantly an energy booster especially if you put a ton of goodness in it.
Lately I have been trying to get back into a healthier eating lifestyle because I figured all this yoga I’m doing is only going to go so far if my eating habits are not balanced. For the last three weeks I have been juicing and making daily smoothies a hour or so before yoga or whenever I find the time. This has helped my skin clear up, my digestive system become more fluid and my energy level is on 100 all because of a smoothie that I made within two minutes.
So you may be thinking “what are the benefits of consuming a healthy smoothie daily?”
Well there are over twenty reasons I can think of off the top of my head but in this post I will cover three main reasons that you should start to incorporate them into your daily practice just like your yoga.
And I can keep going on and on but it’s up to you to take action so you can see the benefits within your life just like yoga. Someone can tell you “Yoga has changed my life,” “Yoga is such a powerful tool,” but not until your on your mat, breathing deep that the benefits start to really resonate with your spirit. So try it out and come back and tell me what you think!
The smoothie pictured above ingredients are:
It’s the little things that I desire.
It’s the little things that make me smile.
It’s the little things that make this all worth while.
It’s the little things that can make my heart skip a beat.
It’s the little things that inspire me.
It’s the little things like a smile or hug from a stranger.
It’s the little things like the sun shining through the clouds.
It’s the little things like ice cream and my favorite blanket.
It’s the little things like calling your family just to say I love you.
It’s just those little things that can get us all through the days, months, years so try appreciating the little things just a little more and see how it feels.
