5 States of Consciousness
November 2018

Yoga Sutra 1.6
“The 5 fluctuations of the mind are Correct Knowledge, Incorrect Knowing, Delusion, Sleep and Memory”
We have many thoughts but all of these can be found in the 5 categories of correct knowledge, incorrect knowledge, delusion, sleep and memory. These five states can either help or hinder the path to intelligence maturity.
Correct knowledge is direct knowledge, with the ability to see things as they really are. Incorrect knowing is based on what is felt rather than what is, as in the story of the blind men and the elephant. Delusion is when the mind lives in a imaginary state without any considerations of the facts. Sleep is when your consciousness is dormant, inactive. Then Memory helps you to recollect experiences for right understanding.Once you gain mastery over these 5 states of mind you can find yourself beyond the field of intellect into the openness of enlightenment!

What Happens When You Don’t Eat After A Workout

 Most nutritionists recommend eating something within 30 to 45 minutes after a workout. It’s called the “open window” of opportunity meaning this is the prime time to restock your glycogen stores. Your body becomes depleted of available energy and needs to be refueled. Ideally a combination of carbs and protein to repair the microdamage that exercising does to your muscles. A few examples of good post workout nutrition might be; a protein bar, protein drink, Greek yogurt with fruit, banana and almond butter, chocolate milk, PBJ sandwich, cottage cheese and fruit, trail mix or any simple snack that has both protein and carbohydrate. 

Everybody is busy and many find themselves rushing off to the next obligation after a quick workout. If you don’t have a protein bar, protein drink or other handy snack packed, getting those nutrients in may not actually happen.  The result can be fatigue, low blood sugar, and higher risk of overuse injuries due to the lack of proper repair work in the body after a workout. If skipping this important aspect of your training regimen becomes a habit, you risk sabotaging your fitness goals. Sports medicine specialists believe that a lot of overuse injuries happen when people are not replacing essential building blocks as readily as they should. By neglecting what your body needs to repair the microtears, you put your muscles at risk of further damage next time you work out.

November Pose of the Month

4 Direction Kundalini Run

Start standing with your upper arms pulled back, forearms parallel to the ground and hands in fists facing each other. Alternating sides, lift each knee as high as possible while you punch the opposite arm forward, so that your arm reaches straight out. Move your arms forcefully forward and back.
Begin facing East for one minute. Each minute turn to the left until you are facing South in the last movement.
