YOGA & HEART HEALTH
Submitted by Leslie Salmon

As this month is dedicated to reducing Heart Disease, I took a moment to do a bit of research and found a great article from the Harvard Medical Review, summarized here: A small but promising body of research suggests that yoga may have special benefits for people with cardiovascular disease. The movement involved in yoga exercises our muscles — anything that works our muscles is good for our hearts and blood vessels. And this activity will help muscles become more sensitive to insulin – important for controlling blood sugar. Participants are encouraged to breathe deeply — this effort temporarily lowers blood pressure and calms our nervous system (think stress). One interesting fact: the heart rests on our diaphragm, our muscle for breathing; therefore, breathing well may assist the heart muscle with its work. Movement combined with deep breathing offers us a physical meditation, focusing and clearing the mind – also helpful in working with cardiovascular disease. The studies that have been done are small, but demonstrate that yoga may: – reduce high blood pressure – ease palpitations – enhance cardiac rehabilitation – lower risks factors such as cholesterol levels, blood sugar, stress hormones – improve balance, reduce falls, enhance breathing No matter your age, physical condition, or body type, there is a class for you. Studios offer many classes from chair yoga to restorative to more active ones. Do your homework – speak with the studio manager or owner to decide which is best for you.

Sunset
 
And now it is we share this space
Where land meets sea, and sun its place
Setting into night…
And joy it is that beckons me
Into your lustrous sight.
 
I know not what will come to pass
Nor what will come to be.
I do know there is a sacred space…
Holding both you and me.
 
I only ask as now as we first meet, that all is shown by grace
Just like the setting sun this eve aglow upon your face.
It was your face that did first entreat
Inquiry into your being
It led me to this wondrous place
Of you, this Grateful One, I’m seeing.

This beautiful love poem written by local Massage Therapist, Craig Lozzi, is actually Part II of a longer poem.  In addition to his healing massages Craig holds regular poetry recitals and this creation is one of many!
