Today I decided mine would be 'Shut your mouth and irrigate'. The first part is easy. I hate extra noise. Coming from a family of 8 and now with 3 children and 2 dogs of my own I need my quiet. "Shut your mouth". That's harsh. In contention would be:
- Shut your hole. (for pervs)
- Shut up. (for mainstream meanies)
- Zip it. (for nerds)
In Yoga the focus is always on the breath. I now know through Bikram Yoga, Dr. Oz and Mary Jarvis that your breath is the best super-food on the planet. In Jivamukti Yoga, which means "soul liberation," there is a whole section on cleansing your entrances and exits which includes nasal irrigation. Jivamukti guides your body and soul into spiritual freedom, physical strength, peace of mind, better health and self-realization. No matter what style of yoga you practice, Jivamukti Yoga will help you to strengthen and deepen your practice and guide you further on the path of spiritual clarity and self-discovery. Includes clear, dramatic black and white photographs.
I've owned this book for years.
Don't tell anybody.
Except for the photos with Goth Make-up and extra-long finger nails, I highly recommend it.
I'm going to shut my mouth and irrigate now. I'll let you know how it goes.
(I think I have to open my mouth and do this. But I promise to be real quiet.)
