OM the Sound of Pure Consciousness
June 2017

Yoga Sutra 1.27 deals with OM – the sound of pure consciousness. Within this sound is where the divine can be revealed in each of us.
Through this humming a vibrational effect manifests healing, comfort and oneness.
One of my teachers described it as tuning into a radio station until all the static disappears.
The chanting of OM finds the clarity of goodness inherent in all humankind.
Making the sound of OM we recognize the universal consciousness that brings us all together, with all that is good within us!

Muscle Recovery Facts

Question. The older I get the Harder it is to recover from workouts. Why?

Answer.  As we age, muscle fibers decrease in number and shrink in size. We also have a slower rate of muscle fiber re-generation. The result is a slower process altogether for recovering from either an injury or a strenuous training workout. Men recover faster than women due to the added benefits of muscle building testosterone.  Here are a few things to keep in mind if you are physically active and over the age of 40.

  • Don’t do the same exercise every day. Cross training will mix up the muscle groups used thus minimizing the stresses placed on the musculoskeletal system.
  • The 48 hour recovery rule worked fine in your 20’s and 30’s but now you may need to allow 72 hours of recovery time to fully repair and heal. 
  • Be sure to include flexibility training in your regimen as muscles, tendons, and ligaments tend to stiffen up with age predisposing you to injury. Increase your range of motion with yoga, swimming or myofascial release.
  • Include strength training in your regimen to injury proof your body, decrease muscle fatigue and improve cardiovascular performance. 
  • Rest is underrated when it comes to recovery. Sleep time is when the body goes into healing repair mode. Deep sleep triggers growth hormone release which assists in the development of muscle as well as decreasing adipose tissue (fat). Aim for 7 to 8 hours of sleep per night.
  • Take advantage of the open window of opportunity for restocking your glycogen stores after a workout. What you eat and how soon you eat immediately after training can make all the difference in the world when it comes to muscle recovery. A study done on older men found that this principle is even more critical than in younger men. The goal is to ingest within 30 minutes of training a combination of carbohydrate and protein to facilitate muscle synthesis. Amounts vary depending on size and workout type but a general recommendation is: 15 grams or more of protein and 1.2 grams of carbohydrate per kg of body weight.

June Posture: Uttanasana/Forward Fold

Standing with body completely lined up with head and shoulders over hips and feet, inhale lift arms overhead. Exhaling – softening your knees as you fold your upper body over the lower body until they touch having your hands on the mat, blocks or bottom of your legs.
To go deeper into the pose exhale as you lift your hips upward then inhale as you begin to slowing straighten your knees without letting your chest move forward. In other words in forward flexion your upper body should always be touching at least part of the lower body. If the upper body moves away from the lower body this is an indication that you are moving pass your edge. Over time this unsupported forward flexion, that is beyond your edge, is where injury lies. As I tell my students never sacrifice form for function as correct alignment is paramount in staying injury free.
