TAO YOGA Classes – Broward

Sunday, Oct. 25th. 10:30 am – 12:30 pm
Frank Iborra Instructor

In the next three months, prior to the next 10 week TAO Yoga session, I will teach one 2 hr. class each month to review material taught in previous classes.  The interim class will also emphasize other aspects of the nei gong system.  You will learn yoga postures to bring body awareness to particular areas to activate, enhance and lengthen breath, known as longevity breathing – This is the first time I will be teaching these postures.

We will also go through the basic energy gates locations.  This process of letting go of obstruction within our inner world is what the Taoists call the outer dissolving process.  Emphasis will be to gain access more clearly into the interior as a way to resolve blockages and gain vitality.

Beginners Welcome

TAO Yoga – Broward Classes

TeaSetTao Yoga is a form of Chi Gung. All chi gung forms are basically energy work for developing the power to heal. The practices taught at White Crane come from a 3000 yr. old Taoist system and are simple to learn yet sophisticated in their application.

How does TAO Yoga differ from Hatha Yoga?
Hatha Yoga uses postures or asanas and breath control (pranayama) to energize subtle channels (nadis). Tao yoga uses gentle movements and breath to move and balance chi. In Hatha yoga you stretch in order to relax, whereas in TAO yoga, you relax in order to stretch. You find the point that is around 70% of your physical extension or range of motion, then relax the body, mind and spirit.

TAO Yoga chi gung can improve hatha or any yoga practice because the internal training tunes the body to feel how the different poses are affecting the deep physical and emotional layers. Chi Gung’s emphasis on moderation and softening give the nerves the ability to release the muscles so that the body gains the flexibility needed to get into and hold the yoga postures. Awareness of chi movement or prana energy is also increased to prevent overstretching which can lead to injuries.

The goal of is to progressively incorporate all the principles of internal Chi Gung (nei gung) within each posture. This includes releasing blocked energy at points within the channels, pulsing the fluids in your joints, internal organs and spinal vertebrae; and manipulating the energy within your etheric field or aura. As always, the emphasis in Taoist practice is towards the spiritual.

This series of classes will be taught in two levels for beginners and those with some experience in TAO yoga. The class will also explore healing with sound, chanting, singing bowls and tuning forks.

Chinese Medicine for Digestive Complaints

By Dr. Marji Lee Pearson

Gas, bloating and constipation can be a pain in the you know what. Literally!! Here are some ways that you can help yourself and feel better.  If you have more questions please feel free to call or email me.  You will find my information at the end of this article.

Approximately 61 million Americans experience digestive problems on an ongoing basis. This is largely due to the harmful repercussions of the standard American diet on our population coupled with the high level of stress that the average American experiences. Digestive problems range from minor annoyances, such as gas and bloating, to life-threatening illnesses, such as ulcerative colitis, unremitting diarrhea, and various cancers that target digestive organs. Whatever the case, it is always worth being proactive about our digestive health. My goal for writing this article on acupuncture and natural therapies is to get you going in the right direction, not only with your digestion but also with your health in general. Let’s take a look at a few common disorders and what we can do for them.

1. Constipation: The standard American diet can easily lead us to chronic constipation. This diet is low in fiber and antioxidants and high in difficult to digest additives and refined ingredients. Many, many people are constipated and they don’t even know it. They may have regular bowel movements, but they are still not flushing their systems totally, which creates intestinal toxicity. Intestinal cleansing is often a top priority in healing numerous chronic health problems. There are several natural herbal remedies and nutritional supplements that can relieve constipation and heal the underlying imbalances.

  • Chinese herbal formulas such as ma zi ren and Wu Ren wan or Five Seeds are gentle laxatives that are not habit forming.
  • Aloe Vera juice reduces inflammation and promotes peristalsis (smooth muscle contraction in the bowel).
  • Psyllium husk is a high fiber product that alleviates constipation.
  • Flax meal and seed are excellent high fiber sources for constipation.
  • Therapeutic grade essential oil of Peppermint helps relieve constipation

2. Diarrhea: Chronic diarrhea can be dangerous for your health. It is still one of the leading causes of death in the world. Diarrhea is related to spleen weakness or intestinal inflammation. It is always a top treatment priority to heal this condition. Stress and anxiety can trigger regular bouts of diarrhea, as can processed and refined foods. Here are some basic remedies for diarrhea:

  • Chinese herbal formulas such as bu zhong yi qi tang ( ginseng and astragalus ), si jun qi tang ( 4 Gentlemen ), liu jun zi tang (6 Gentlemen), and jin gui shen qi tang ( rehmannia 8 ) are helpful for alleviating diarrhea due to deficiency. Tong xie yao feng, Isatis Cooling, and jia wei xiao yao wan are helpful for diarrhea due to heat and inflammation.
  • Western herbs such as slippery elm, chamomile, peppermint, and ginger harmonize and soothe the stomach to stop diarrhea.
  • Probiotics such as acidophilus are useful as long-term adjuncts in treating diarrhea.
  • Therapeutic grade essential oils of ginger and peppermint also harmonize the stomach and relieve diarrhea.

3. Bloating and gas: These symptoms tend to arise from eating too much or too fast, excessive stress, refined foods, coffee and alcohol, and sugar. Aside from slowing down and eating less of these foods, here are a few herbal suggestions:

  • Chai hu shu gan wan — the quintessential Chinese formula for the combination of stress and gas.
  • Xiao yao wan — Excellent for digestive problems that arise during menses and excessive stress.
  • Liu jun zi tang — Strengthens the spleen and takes phlegm out of the gut, which is often related to as and bloating.
  • Acidophilus and bifidus — Bloating and gas can be related to candida overgrowth, which is pathological yeast that causes an array of physical and emotional imbalances.

4. Irritable bowel Syndrome: IBS is a common problem that affects millions. Doctors will often diagnose IBS when the patient’s symptoms don’t seem to match up with anything else, so they call it irritable bowel. This disorder is characterized by bowels fluctuating from constipation to diarrhea with intermittent abdominal pain or distention. People with IBS tend to be sensitive to a variety of foods including high fiber foods, refined sugar, wheat, and gluten products. Symptoms can continue indefinitely and can be resistant to conventional treatments. I have treated several patients with IBS, usually with very positive results. Acupuncture theory asserts that IBS typically involves a disharmony between the liver and the spleen. The liver becomes hyperactive due to stress, anger, and frustration, which causes it to weaken the spleen, causing loose bowels and fatigue. Treatment involves relaxing the liver and strengthening the spleen.

  • Herbal formulas such as Irritease by K’An Herbals and Isatis Cooling by Health Concerns have proven helpful. In general, I recommend committing to weekly acupuncture and herbal treatment for 6-8 visits, depending upon the severity and duration of your symptoms.
  • Acidophilus and bifidus can be helpful, as many people with IBS also have Candida
  • Chamomile and peppermint have a soothing effect on the gut and can reduce irritation

Many digestive disorders respond very well to consistent acupuncture, essential oil and herbal treatment. Making dietary changes that restore and detoxify the gut also enhances treatment progress. Digestion is one of the main reference points for gauging one’s overall health. If there are weaknesses or imbalances here, it is likely that one’s overall health is compromised.

Aromatherapy and Chinese Medicine for Depression

By Dr. Marji Lee Pearson

Depression is running rampant through our society.  Approximately 35 million Americans suffer with depression or chronic anxiety.  Many are taking anti-depressant medications. While these medications do offer support for a variety of people some do not respond as well.  A few reasons for this include:

  • Side effects that can outweigh the benefits of the medication being used
  • Feeling disconnected from themselves on the medication
  • Having a belief system that says depression isn’t a biochemical imbalance

Aromatherapy – Essential Oils

Essential Oils can be quite helpful.  Here is a brief list of oils:

  • Roman Chamomile
  • Lavender
  • Citrus oils of Mandarin, Orange, Lime, Bergamot, Tangerine
  • Geranium
  • Ylang Ylang


Chinese Herbs

There are many Chinese herbal formulas that really work wonders for depression.  Here are a few:

  • Bu Zhong Yi Qi Tang
  • Gui Pi Tang
  • Tian Wan Bu Xin Tang

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a branch of Chinese Medicine that treats the energetic level of the person. It is usually a profoundly relaxing experience that establishes a deep quality of restoration and balance to the central nervous system.  Almost all people feel sleepy, dreamy, altered within the treatment and after.  The feeling stays long after treatment ends and becomes better with continuous treatment.  Many people don’t want to leave after their treatments and just want to curl up and stay in this wonderful feeling of well being.

Nutritional Supplements

I find that the majority of depressed or anxious patients suffer from hypoglycemia. Many of them begin their day drinking coffee and then crash in the afternoon.  It is important to maintain stable blood sugar throughout the day.  To help with this start the day with a high protein breakfast such as whole oats, eggs, turkey bacon. Make sure to have a snack with you and take it every 2 to 3 hours.  Avoid caffeine and coffee or at least cut down your intake.  Avoid allergenic food such as refined sugar, pasteurized dairy, wheat and gluten for 30 days and see what happens.  The depression could significantly improve.  Some nutritional supplements to help depression:

  • Fish Oil
  • B Vitamin complex

Emotional Issues

Depression means you are holding something inside of yourself. This could be from anger or frustration that you don’t express because of fear, low self-esteem or many other reasons.  I have found that the use of Chinese Medicine, counseling and other holistic modalities work really well in helping to move through the issues and stuck energy.  Something you can do for yourself is to move your body either through walking, running, biking, dancing to name a few.  This also helps move the stuck energy inside your body/mind so you have more energy.

In my clinical practice I have worked with many patients who have lost hope and felt they had run out of options.  Many come to me as a last resort.  Based on my experience working with numerous patients that have suffered from anxiety and chronic depression I can safely say that using the above modalities has helped me in getting to the root cause of the depression and helping my patients move on with their lives.

PeopleTek – Habits For Success

 

PeopleTek
Leadership tip of the week: Habits For Success

Dear Leaders,
 
Our habits impact our lives and careers both negatively and positively.  What we need to objectively assess is which are impeding our ability to succeed and which are keeping us on track to realize our goals and dreams.
 
If you've graduated from PeopleTek's Leadership Journey™ program you've been told that once you identify a habit or behavior that is not working for you, you must replace it with one that gets positive results.  This is recommended as it keeps us from regressing back to what is familiar to us (albeit counterproductive!).
 
Habits allow us to save time; we don't need to think about what we're doing, we merely "do it".  But is this serving us well?  What can we change to become more disciplined and focused and not be on "automatic pilot"?

  • So what can you do?  Start replacing your non productive behaviors with those that will help you achieve the results you desire.
  • If you're consistently late for meetings set an alarm on your laptop, watch, phone, etc. 
  • Post notes in your office reminding you of what TO do.
  • Block out time in your daily calendar and use that time to return phone calls and emails.
  • Use your goals to set priorities.
  • Organize your day; determine what must get done and abide by your task list.
  • Add your personal tasks to your calendar.   Ex. Gym time,  call home,  dinner-time,  etc

 
Ultimately what you need to do is decide what habits work for you, replace those that don't work for you, and commit to making the positive changes that help you achieve success!

Sincerely,
Michael W. Kublin and
Jan Mayer-Rodriguez

"The individual who wants to reach the top in business must appreciate the might of force and habit. He must be quick to break those habits that can break him – and hasten to adopt those practices that will become the habits that help him achieve the success he desires."

– J. Paul Getty

——————————

Some common unproductive habits include:
 

  • Procrastination
  • Consistently being late
  • Interrupting instead of listening
  • Multi-tasking when full focus is required
  • Ignoring life / work balance
  • Failure to set goals (or not making the goals your priority)
  • Allowing phone calls and emails to divert your attention 
  • Not returning phone calls
  • Disregarding commitments
  • Not sleeping enough

It's Summer in South Florida and we hope you are all staying cool and dry.  Frank Iborra wrote a note on the summer solstice and even though it has just passed, I'm sending it because it still has relevance in the future and relates to the upcoming study group. Following also is the information for the July events.  

For a class schedule you can go to the blog at www.whitecranehealingarts.com

Summer Solstice

Today is the Summer Solstice which is the time when yang has reached its peak and yin begins to grow.  This is considered in the Taoist tradition, the best time for people to control their vitality, so as not to over-extend themselves.  The Summer Solstice is one of eight high energy days observed by the Yellow Emperor’s calendar.  

This system of natural energetic cycles, as observed by the Chinese people over countless generations informs and guides us in regards to agriculture, daily activities, and spiritual cultivation.   The Ancients through texts such as the I Ching, teach the natural energy cycles so that our intuition and natural instincts can evolve.  This is one way to live in greater harmony and connect to the deep source.

The Bailiff calls your name and you are told to stand before the Judge.
 
The Judge is reading something to you – it sounds like another language and you have no clue what he is saying.
 
All you can think of is how your life is ending, prison bars, crappy food and the stench of that cell.
