Fellow yoga instructor and acro-yoga enthusaist, Katrina Repman ( and I partnered up to demonstrate some very basic acro-yoga techniques.  If you're not familiar with acro-yoga, it's just as it sounds: acrobatic yoga, and it's tons of fun!

As we get closer to the holiday season, make sure to take care of your health and well-being.  Below are some quick & simple techniques can help you stay relaxed and well!

  • Take a 5 minute (or 1 minute) breather.  Stand up from your desk. Raise your arms to the sky (ceiling) and take a LARGE BREATH IN (breathe in as much air as you can)!  When you exhale, simply let the breath leave your body - don't control it.  Feel free to make any sighs or sounds (as long as you're not going to bother your coworkers).  Let your arms drop when you exhale.  Repeat this sequence 3 times.  

    This technique is great for increasing oxygen in your blood, increasing circulation, and decreasing stress.  All of which will help you stay happy and healthy!

  • Drink more water.  All of us don't drink enough water.  Adding an extra cup or two (8 oz or more) to your daily intake will help your body stay hydrated and healthy.

  • Make a mental pact with yourself to not sweat the small stuff.  Sure that guy in front of you cut you off, or maybe your coworker didn't refill the printer paper tray after a large print job.  Whatever it is, YOU are in control of your state of mind.  So if you find that you're wanting to retaliate for small faux-pauxs, take a moment to pause, take a deep breath, and let it go.  We know it's not worth it in the long run to get upset, but it's tempting to take action when you're irked about something.

October was a bustling month!  In addition to the weekend festival work (ACL x 2 & Art Outside), I set up at several corporate health and wellness expos around the Austin area.  If your company doesn't currently have on-site chair massage, share the Austin Chair Massage page with your HR or benefits coordinator.  I include lots of great research from the National Institute of Health (NIH) on the benefits of massage and why it's in your company's best interest to make it available to you and your colleagues.

After two busy weekends and one rained out Sunday, I'm happy to have ACL Music Fest behind me!  It's an exhausting but fun experience. I'm really looking forward to Art Outside, which is one of my most favorite festivals in the central Texas area.  If you're coming out for the event, stop by our massage booth in the vendor area to get some R&R!
