Achieving balance is easier said than done.  Everyone truly knows when they are out of balance, whether it be physically, spiritually, or mentally.  The question then becomes what to do about it.  My answer, go slow, reconnect, and try yoga.  I don’t mean to run out and join a class, I mean to try it at home.  With every phase of my life as an intuitive, there comes a need to balance and refocus the energy.  I use 5 minutes of yoga, most everyday, to help me with the reconnecting.  Life is always in motion and the mindfulness of a few yoga poses allows me to turn inward and check my balance.  Plus, it just makes me laugh and puts me in a great mood, especially since I am usually doing it with 3 dogs.  So how do you start?  You just do.  I have spent years trying to find the right book, teacher, or chart that will provide me with the simple basic poses and a method that works for me.  Well,  I have finally found it in the pages of a children’s book called, Yoga Bunny, by Brian Russo. It is a wonderful story, capturing how I feel about yoga and how I practice yoga!  The best part, it gives you all the basic yoga poses.  No woman doing yoga in high heels, or some young perfectly outfitted girl or guy showing you, it’s a bunny! I have to tell you that for me, it just makes yoga fun, inviting, and easy to do everyday!  Ciao, Karen
