Physical Body Our physical body needs to be re-enfranchised, exercised, nourished and rested. Quite simply, we have become disembodied. This implies a need to deliberately be present with the body and listen to it: the tremors, the twitches, the tightness, the aches, the pains, the discomfort and the numbness, too. In addition, the body needs proper exercise in the form of cardiovascular training, a program of weight training, core exercises and stretching that could include yoga postures and connected breathing. The goal of yoga for yogis and yoginis is fourfold: to engage the physical body in movement; to expand sensations of how it feels to move; to have the mind reflect on the true essence of the body; and to meditate on the felt experience of the physical body and the sensations that rise for us.

Mindfulness & Power of our thoughts A strong impact is made on our health and overall well-being by what we think and feel, how we talk to ourselves, and what view we take about what is happening to us, and around us.

That was a certain depiction I wish I could be. Sathaka, an uncommon name I received when I arrived in this world on 1999. I studied in Catholic school for 6 years and later, I moved to Panyarat High School. Normally, the majority of my friends always study extra classes tremendously. However, me, always study something differently than others.
Anyone who has siblings understands that growing up there will be arguments and fights. After my brother left to go live with his mom I did not get that sibling rivalry, well until my cousin and I started spending more time together. Growing up with a cousin that is only about eleven months younger than me lead to many disagreements in the future, mainly because of us living side by side we did everything together. In February of 1999 I was born into an amazing family, being the newest baby in our mediate family I was adored by everyone. That lasted until December of that same year when Jannie was born, everyone can see that she got more attention for the next few months after she was born.
Growing up I was lucky enough to have nothing but positivity around me, may that be from my family, my friends, or the close knit community that I was a part of, but it all come together to create an uprising that I am proud to call my own. Although many of these aspects around me lead to who I am today as an individual, I would like to focus on my family and the effects it has had on me. I grew up in a big family with that family always being around the corner from me, which still didn’t stop me from bragging any time my grandpa would pick me up from kindergarten to anyone willing -or not- to listen. I grew up always sure of two things: one, every Saturday I would go grocery shopping with my grandpa and he’d tell me stories ranging from him peeing on a classmate of his, to his experience with World War II, and although I was too young to appreciate it then, now looking back on it I would not have traded those Saturdays for the world. The second certainty in my life was that I had a family that would always love and support me no matter what.
