YOGA & JOINT HEALTH FOR ATHLETES & THE REST OF US

By Marianne Mohr, Special to the Ruidoso News  Published 3:01 p.m. MT March 16, 2018. The fourth in a series by the owner of the New Mexico Buddha Yoga School of Yogic Arts on getting the most from a yoga experience.

In the previous 3 articles, I gave tips on ways beginning or experienced yoga students can achieve more gratification and better results from their yoga practices. In this final installment, I discuss the advantages of a complimentary yoga practice to those with connective tissue and joint issues, and to athletes.

Thankful for Moments of Mindfulness

Yikes life can be difficult. People want you to do things you are not sure you want to do. People disappoint you with carelessness. Innocent animals and children suffer around the globe. Especially elephants, why do sad stories of them break my heart? Everywhere it is easy to find evidence for the ugliness, the sadness in this world. How can we cope? I can I cope? Better question: How can we THRIVE? How can I thrive?

Each day that I must teach a class, I am grateful.

For an hour I feel connected with others, I feel connected to the Universe.

Brokened hearted on the yoga mat

My first class at the new little studio I opened in the heart of Ruidoso.. turned out to be a time of emotion. Not only for me but students too. I was thrilled to be on my own and free to express my own calling helping others with yoga. But I also struggled with feelings of anxiety going "on my own" with no one's help with the final touches.  It felt lonely. I had concern that my students may not be satisfied with the new place...  and a sense of loss of leaving the studio and friends where I had taught for almost 2 years.
