MJ's Healing Circles Are BACK!

Starting in October we will have 3 new Healing Circles & Crystal Bowl Meditations!

Tuesday evenings at 7:00 pm at Sukha: The Non-Intimidating Yoga Studio! Manasquan location
Thursday evenings at 7:00 pm at MJ's Home Studio in Sea Girt
Friday mornings at 11:00 am at Sukha South: The Brick location

Come join the Angels to embrace whatever life is throwing at you! Everything happens for us, not to us.  What is it that your body is telling you?  What has it manifested physically in order to bring to the surface something you need to look at and heal? What relationships issues are showing up to tell you something?  Who are you? What did you come here to learn?  What is your soul purpose? These are just some of the messages that you may receive!

This small group therapy is intended to guide, support and give you the tools necessary for your personal healing and growth.  Each gathering begins with connecting to your Angels and your higher self. Everyone will receive an angelic message to help to set the intention for your meditation. Essential oils and energy therapy techniques may be used as guided. The beautiful tones produced by our crystal bowls are not just heard by the ear, you will feel them in your body. The tones will affect your energy centers (chakras) for healing, balancing, meditation and awakening of the soul.  Sound vibration, which is the vibration of creation, can help us shift our vibration, reach deeper levels of meditation and ultimately reach new levels of healing and ascension.

Come relax, recharge, and rejuvenate! Because we limit the number of participants we ask that you pre-register online or in person to secure your spot. To save your spot for one of the Sukha locations please download the FREE SUKHA app in Itunes or Google Play and see all upcoming classes. To register for a class in Sea Girt please go here.

10 Tips for a Healthy Holiday Season

Staying healthy can be one of the greatest gifts you give yourself this holiday season and so I've tried to be very conscious of my daily habits. I thought I'd share these things with you as you plan your days.

1. Don’t postpone your sleep. Your body relies on deep restful sleep to rejuvenate. Get eight hours each night. Especially critical are the hours between 10pm and 2am when the body releases hormones that heal the body. So for those 3 am Christmas Eve gift-wrappers, create a new plan this season.

2. Variety is the spice of life. Eat a wide variety of foods and put different colors on your plate. Eat nine to 10 servings of fruits and vegetables each day and look for foods that are rich in antioxidants.

3. Don’t forget to incorporate whole food supplements into your diet. Especially important are B, C and E vitamins and calcium.

4. Schedule personal time at least 3 times per week. Use it to get moving with physical exercise and seek out serenity with stress reduction techniques such as meditation.

5. Hydration is vital. So, make sure to wet your whistle everyday. Drink eight to ten 8-ounce glasses of water and at least one cup of tea per day. I love Sunrider’s Calli and Fortune Delight Teas to strengthen my elimination system and rid the body of toxic build up. Add some raw organic honey for extra healing benefits.

6. Replace small talk with authentic connections! Engage in meaningful conversations with friends and family, enjoy physical touch with a real hug, laugh from your belly and have fun.

7. Don’t skimp on cleanliness and good hygiene. Especially when you are exhausted at the end of the day, it seems easier to jump in bed and forget your usual routine. However, consider that you are preparing your body to rejuvenate and recharge. Give it a fighting chance.

8. Try Chinese Goldenseal Root which is considered one of nature’s greatest antibiotics and general body tonic if you are feeling run down.

9. Add Probiotics such as acidophilus into your diet. These promote good bacteria, destroy harmful bacteria, cleanse the body of mucous and debris and support the acid/alkaline balance in your intestines.

10. Experiment with aromatherapy and therapeutic grade essential oils. You will enjoy the scents that fill your home as well as their healing benefits. Try a festive scent, Balsam Fir, which is historically prized for its ability to heal respiratory conditions and muscular pain. It is also grounding, stimulating to the mind and relaxing to the body.

Five Healthy Holiday Favorites

So much of our Thanksgiving traditions revolve around having certain foods at our celebrations. In fact, since we know that nature provides us with exactly what we need during the year many of these traditional foods are loaded with health benefits too. We’ve included some of our favorites, their health benefits and a few ideas on how to use them. So now, when you indulge you can feel good about your choices.

Whether you use pumpkin puree, the seeds or pumpkin seed oil the health benefits are tremendous. This bright orange veggie is rich in beta-carotene which converts to vitamin A and is a good source of potassium and fiber. Recent studies have shown that the seeds may help men avoid prostate cancer! Lightly roast the seeds and add to cereals, salads, or create your own trail mix with nuts and dried fruits. Drizzle pumpkin seed oil over salmon or other fish for a delicious flavor. Try adding pumpkin spice to warm soy milk for a delicious warm beverage. Use puree in your favorite cakes, pies and muffins. For the kids, try adding a nutritional boost to ketchup by adding a bit of pumpkin puree to your bottled organic version.

We’ve all heard how important berries are in our diet, but we usually think of the spring and summer berries like strawberries, blueberries and others. Don’t forget the cranberry! This berry is a great source of vitamin C. It contains phytochemicals that prevent bacterial infections of the urinary tract and other bacterial diseases; it is also a good source of antioxidants and flavonoids such as anthocyanins which act as an anti-inflammatory. Cranberries can be added to baked goods, salads, cereals, smoothies, rice and grain dishes. Of course, try making your own relish for Thanksgiving this year.

Recent studies suggest that this fruit may help combat cancer. Rich in antioxidants, pomegranates lower LDL (bad) cholesterol, improve oxygen levels associated with coronary heart disease, may help prevent prostate cancer, delay the growth of tumors, reduce the risk of breast cancer, reduce inflammation and reduce diarrhea. You can pop the seeds right into your mouth or add them to your salads for a tart and tasty crunch; use them in marinades, glazes garnishes, oatmeal, pancakes, cereal, cakes, puddings and other fruit desserts.

These nuts contain more disease fighting antioxidants than any other common nut and their health benefits can be compared to berries and cherries. Pecans help lower cholesterol and are loaded with heart-healthy unsaturated fats. Pecans contain more than 19 vitamins and minerals such as vitamin E, folic acid, calcium, copper, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, zinc and several B vitamins. They can decrease the risk of cancer, heart disease, and neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s. They can lower cholesterol. Recent studies indicate that consumption may increase metabolic rates and enhance satiety. Therefore, these nuts can have a positive impact on weight loss. Try dry roasting them in a pan or in the oven with some added spices; toss on salads, cereals, baked goods; grind them and use to coat chicken or fish.

One of the most common spices used this time of year, cinnamon has numerous health benefits. Recent studies have shown that between 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon per day can help control blood sugar by making insulin more efficient. It can also help lower levels of cholesterol, ease allergies, relieve pain, fight bacteria and fungi, reduce gas, and relax muscles. Use this spice in your teas, cooking, baking and smoothies. Add on top of oatmeal, cereals, yogurt, applesauce, carrots, and squash.
