Guided Pranayama Meditation

Meditation | Lean and Green Body®

In the dictionary, pranayama simply means the regulation of the breath through certain techniques and exercises. 

Prana = breath or vital energy

Ayama = control

Pranayama, or breath control, was first mentioned in yoga literature as a breathing practice around 700 BCE. 

Pranayama has many benefits for both our physical body and our mind. This breathing practice has been known to decrease stress, lower tension and anxiety while relaxing the mind. Pranayama has also been known to help lower blood pressure and restore elasticity of the lungs, great for those with breathing conditions such as asthma. This type of breathing practice induces a meditative state and quiets the mind, allowing for healing and true peace to take place.

Namaste,

Mindful Movement Studio Fitness Announcement

MMS fitness post.jpg

You may have heard that something BIG is coming for Lean and Green Body®!

Well the rumors are true!! It’s official … I am launching online FITNESS classes through the MINDFUL MOVEMENT STUDIO starting August 2019!

I am thrilled to have the opportunity to expand the MINDFUL MOVEMENT STUDIO.

I currently offer yoga and meditation classes online; 20, 40 and 60 minute options available, as well as 5-10 minute “quickies”. I will now be expanding to 10-30 minute workouts! These are workouts that you can do ANYWHERE with limited (if any) equipment, making this the perfect tool for those movers & shakers with the on the go entrepreneurial lifestyle.

The thing that I personally love about this online studio is the ability for me to take these workouts, yoga classes, and guided meditations, anywhere with me. My husband and I have been fortunate to have the opportunity to travel frequently and I always miss my workouts and yoga classes when I travel. So obviously, I decided I had to create a solution! A solution that was originally designed to fill a void in my life, and I hope it will help fill one in yours as well.

You can login to your MINDFUL MOVEMENT STUDIO account from anywhere in the world (tropical vacation, Alaskan cruise… anywhere with wifi!) any time of day!! That’s what I love most!! It’s a workout or yoga class on YOUR schedule.

I have actually found that I have been using this studio a lot at home recently too! We are in the midst of a move, and the studios in my area don’t always offer classes that fit into my schedule … no problem! I simply login to the MINDFUL MOVEMENT STUDIO, select the type of class (yoga or fitness), select the length of class I want and the difficulty level. It’s that simple!

I have had the opportunity to work on several exciting projects since the start of Lean and Green Body® in 2015 and I have to say this is my most exciting project to date!
