What are the practices we can bring into our lives to cultivate stronger roots of contentment? For Dr. Diana, yoga nidra has been an essential practice. If you’re curious to experience the magic, set aside 20 minutes for Dr. Diana to take you through this sleep guided meditation. We recommend this practice upon waking or right before bed, in a comfortable, undisturbed space.
We also discuss an upcoming retreat hosted by @dr.shivasana and @the.zentist; A Journey Into Your Wild. As high achievers and over-workers, we all deserve a pause and the opportunity to nourish and replenish ourselves. Allow the energy of breath, awareness, movement, connection, play, and deep rest reignite your body’s intelligence of healing and rejuvenation. Learn how to use your yoga and mindfulness practices as a training ground for life. Connect with other open hearted and minded women in medicine and dentistry as we explore how to live with more intention, heart, aliveness, passion, purpose, and one that is true to us.
