How Much Sleep do I Need (for Healing?)

Episode #121: The Dharma of Karma Yoga with Sarahjoy Marsh

The Shift from self-centered to community-impactful yogisYou may have noticed on your yoga path a few shifts. The most obvious shifts at first are about how we feel.

3 tips for Ayurvedic Practitioners in 2011

Being an Ayurvedic Pracitioner in many ways is getting easier. 10 years ago most gyms didn't have a decent yoga program. Most people now can recognize triangle pose a mile away. This shift into yoga has paved the way for us Ayurvedic Practitioners.  Our neighbors are discovering their interioirty... their inner body... their subtle physiology. Our hospitals have mind-body stress release programs. Our communities are starting to wake up  and look around for who is producing food locally.Over the past few years, my husband and I have had a few dinner table conversations about who thrives and who struggles. We've noticed a few industry trends. My career in  yoga and ayurveda became full time when I was 27. Now I'm 37 and I'm very interested in supporting Ayurvedic Practitioners and yoga teachers in reaching deeper into their communities. To do so, though, we might need an additional skillset to our healing and preventive medicine skills.This new skill set requires creativity, connection, communication, marketing, and basic online and offline business skills. We need a head for business. I never studied business before I went into business.  I went to a liberal arts college and the closest I could come to a business class was Economics. That's not close. We need to study business and marketing and the new economy as if it were the 8th chakra.Here are my 3 tips for Ayurvedic Practitioners in 2011
  1. STOP USING SANSKRIT. Most people don't care about Sanskrit. Most folks would rather figure optimize their iPhone than optimize their bowel movements. They have no idea how the sanskrit language can open the subtle channels of their inner body. And because they don't know... they don't care. So if you want to attract these "most people" into your amazing healing work so they don't have to pop pills every time something goes awry, you need to speak to the hearts and needs of the people you can help. When I stopped offering "Ayurvedic Cleanses" to my locals and started offering "Detox Courses" my numbers doubled.  I only use sanskrit when I teach Yogis... because sanskrit for Yogis is like dark chocolate for women. This means in smaller communities, using words like "Ayurveda" to describe what you do might create more confusion than clarification.
