Fall is here, which all to often means not only beautiful leaves, crisp air and leather jackets, but also endless business trips, work stress, and getting caught up in the rigamandroll of our modern life, without that chance to lay back, take a deep breath, or focus on the other things that are also important in life. Which is all well and good, but begs the question from this end… are you being balanced?
This week we are going to make sure we are not solely the work and health warriors that are often in society’s forefront, but that we are warriors for the entire eco system around us that creates who, what, and where we are. Our families, colleagues, friends, environment, and so much more. We can all do little things to make the whole, our whole better. And at I.AM.YOU. we start with yoga on our mats.

All About Increasing Energy
Apparently I am overwhelmingly energetic. Or so say my friends, family, clients, students and colleagues. The funny thing is, I do not think about energy all that much, which I realized over the days of my “energizing” honeymoon is because it is something so deeply innate, something so INSIDE that it is natural, even more so with the enhancement of I.AM.YOU. yoga and nourishment techniques.
In the traditions of yoga and Traditional Chinese Medicine that I.AM.YOU. pulls from, they say that energy runs inside a series of channels in your body. Acupuncture uses the needles to manipulate the energy, I.AM.YOU. yoga uses the poses, breath, and thoughts. The poses work like a wrench banging on the outside of a pipe to things to move on the inside - ie using the muscles and ligaments to shift the inner energy. The breath and thoughts work like a current in a vast ocean approaching an inlet to a stream, shifting the energy subtly on the inside. The aim of all is to get your energy out of the thousands of convoluted side channels and into the major three central channels, and ultimately the one main central channel, called the uma in Tibetan. When your energy is mainly there, you are never tired, bogged down, drained or sick, but always ecstatic, successful, and ready for more, in every sense.
Businesses continue to capitalize on society’s overworked, overstressed, continual need for more energy selling us bars, gallon size lattes, ‘super’ juices, massages, facial products, 5hour shots (please don’t drink those), and so much more – but what you really need for more energy is already inside you. It is you. You just have to shift it around and peel it out. Which I.AM.YOU. is here to teach you how to do, with yourself, by yourself, any time you need, any place you are, by simply implementing some proper yoga and nourishment techniques.
So this week let’s focus on revving up and releasing our natural energy, and shying away from what tends to suck it. I guarantee you have more energy than you think …
