Blog Sept 26/18: I didn’t initially realize how some life experiences... would’ve helped me with mind-body stress-management practice - especially as a VHLer. I studied martial arts, as a kid, and trumpet, in private lessons and a bachelor’s degree in music. After graduate studies in ‘99, I became very familiar with mental health treatment as a Social Worker and therapist for many years.
I like this kneeling position because it just naturally makes me breath effortlessly. I sit on a big coffee can with a pillow and put a mat on the floor (it’s better for my knees). Here, I can do mindful meditation or relaxation for around 5-10 minutes. I tend to watch a candle or a calm you tube video.
