Take a Moment of Mindfulness and Breathe with Jill Novak

Slow down. Pause. Take a deep breath. Ask yourself, “What do I need right now?” Notice how much more present, centered, and in touch with yourself you feel.

When we restrict our breath or forget to breath, we hold onto feelings of tightness, stuckness, or fear. When we bring prana or life force into our bodies we feel more in tune, intuitive, and whole and the more...

OMG! – Do I have Ama? What is it and How do I heal it?

Do you wake up feeling groggy, sluggish, unclear, or ready for more sleep? Do you feel stuck, weighed down, or lethargic? Or perhaps your clothes don’t fit quite as well as they used to? If you said yes to any of these questions, there’s a good chance you have ama in your system and need to clear it out. ‘Ama’ is undigested material (food, emotions, issues) that sticks around in our physical and mental bodies, weighing us down and making us feel foggy and tired, instead of light and clear....
