My Favourite Technique To Move On and Let Go

 

Kiana Ng

Letting go and moving on is a process that takes courage to peel back the emotional layers of hurt, anger & grief. Below is one my favourite ways to move on and let go.

Let’s talk about the burn ritual.

The Burn Ritual is my favourite way to move on and let go.

So how does it work?

First, grab a piece of pen & paper, or your favourite journal.

Next, write out a letter to anyone involved in the situation you’re trying to let go of. This is your time to let it all out. Don’t hold back. Your letter(s) might be 1 page, or they might be 10. The point of this part is to let out any buried emotion that hasn’t been expressed yet. Make sure you’re in your own sacred space while you do this so that you’re not interrupted or rushing the process.

Once your letters are done, it’s time to burn them.

When you’re ready to burn your letters, make it ritualistic so that it feels like an act of moving on and letting go, rather than just burning paper. Set the intention that by burning these letters, you’re letting the past go. Ask the universe (or any God you believe in) to help cleanse you of the past. If it feels right to you, re-read each letter before you burn it.

Once all of your letters are burned, sit with the ending for a while. If you’re outside (which I encourage), connect to the earth and let it cleanse and wash you anew. Several loud exhales may be required. Or a big cry. Take your time here. It’s important to feel the ending.

When you’re ready to move on with the rest of your day, I encourage you to spend it alone with gentle acts of self-care so that you can sit in the neutral zone that comes right before a new beginning.

Be kind to yourself through this process.

Use This Technique To Uncover Your Truth

Use This Technique To Uncover Your Truth

It’s so easy to get lost in the labels, names, and distinctions that the world places on us that we forget how to come back home to ourselves. That’s why I’m sharing this technique to uncover your truth.

Everyone has felt lost at some point in their lives, but even more so now with the increasing stress & pressure from society to fit in, belong, and therefore be a certain way. In the effort to try and please, fit in, and be accepted, we forget our own truth.

A great way to come back home to yourself and your truth is by stating the facts following the words, “My truth is…”

Let me give you an example of a few of my truths:

My truth is that sometimes I’m an introvert, and sometimes I’m an extrovert.

My truth is that I love self-healing and personal growth.

My truth is that I’m sensitive, although I might not always show it.

My truth is that I’m a teacher and giver at heart.

My truth is that I value self expression.

My truth is that I’m still learning how to be my true, authentic self all the time.

My truth is that I’ve spent a lot of my life finding my voice.

My truth is that I’m still finding my voice.

My truth is that I’m strong, independent, and powerful.

My truth is that I love peace, love, and beauty.

 

I could go on.

So when you do this exercise for yourself, I’m not talking about who you are based on the roles and names society’s given you (ex. yoga teacher, coach, mother, son, etc.). When you do this exercise, finish the sentence with who you really are at your core, what you’re learning about yourself, what your story is, or anything else that feels like an authentic truth to you.

So what’s your truth?

Drop your truth’s in the comments.

The #1 Lie We Tell Ourselves

The #1 Lie We Tell Ourselves

The #1 Lie We Tell Ourselves

 

Kiana Ng

So many of us lean into denial when we’re placed in uncomfortable situations that involve having to make a decision. We avoid the truth.

It’s so much easier to avoid the truth, to deny what’s actually happening, and to tell ourselves that everything is okay when it’s not.

And that’s the #1 lie we tell ourselves; that everything is okay when it’s not.

Jumping into denial over a truth is so much easier than facing a hard truth head on because as soon as you face the truth, it means that you have to feel the pain it brings. Shining the light on a hard truth means that change is coming, that something might have to end, and usually, it’s something that you’re not ready for.

It might be that you’re afraid to admit to yourself that you’re no longer happy with your way of life, that your significant other is mistreating you, or that your boss is harassing you. Maybe you’re in denial over a death, a break up, or a significant loss.

Whatever it may be that’s triggering your denial, you tell yourself that everything is okay because that means you can stay in a comfortable place for a little while longer. It means that you don’t have to face your fears of the truth.

Here’s the thing though… As comfortable as this lie might be, it’s doing you more harm by keeping you stuck over the past, or in an unhealthy situation. This lie is stopping you from moving forwards into a better way of life.

So my question to you is: What are you afraid to shine light on, & can you find the courage to face it?

How To Determine Which Type Of Yoga Is Right For You

How To Determine Which Type Of Yoga Is Right For You

How To Determine Which Type Of Yoga Is Right For You

 

Kiana Ng

There are many different styles of yoga. If you’re new to yoga, it can be overwhelming & confusing when you’re trying to choose which class or studio you want to commit to.

When I first started practicing, I definitely didn’t even think about researching what each type of yoga might entail. However, it would have been nice to know since some types of yoga are more intense or vigorous than others. If you walk into a power class looking for something stretchy & grounded, you might not walk out of the class with the most positive impression, because power classes are meant to be very dynamic & intense.

So to clarify your confusion and make it easier for you decide which is right for you, below is a list of the most common types of yoga you might come across.

Types of Yoga

  • Vinyasa or Flow Yoga: This practice is typically faster paced with the emphasis on flowing multiple poses together. It’s a strong practice that usually gives you a challenge due to its dynamic nature. However, even though it’s faster-paced & dynamic, it may still be suitable for beginners if the class is labelled as open or all levels, or L1 or L1-2.

 

  • Hatha Yoga: This practice is still dynamic and strong, but it’s slower in nature. In this style of class, you will find that poses are held longer than you would experience in a vinyasa or flow class.

 

  • Yin Yoga: This practice is very slow with the focus on stretching deep into the fascia & connective tissues. Poses are held between 3-5 minutes and are all grounded (on back, seated, or on stomach).

 

  • Restorative Yoga: This practice is similar to yin, but it involves more props and the poses are gentler in nature with long holds.

 

  • Ashtanga: This is a very vigorous practice derived from vinyasa yoga. There are different levels in this practice each with their own set of poses. The traditional Mysore ashtanga practice is done early in the morning and it is not guided (you are expected to know the poses by memory). In the western world, you can find more guided ashtanga classes.

 

  • Power Yoga: Also a set series of poses, derived from vinyasa or flow yoga, that may differ slightly from teacher to teacher. Expect intensity and a lot of heat in this practice!

 

  • Sivananda: This practice is based on 12 yoga poses. It’s a very slow & methodical class.

 

  • Bikram: This practice is 90 minutes long and is always done in a very hot room. Come with an open mind and expect intensity.

 

  • Iyengar: This practice is very prop-based and is also done more slowly, but it can still be challenging and strong.

 

Personally, I love the balance of flow yoga and yin yoga. My gymnastics background loves the challenge of flow yoga, but my love for meditation pulls me to yin yoga.

Choosing your type of yoga is a personal choice. The first thing to decide, before choosing your style of class, is what you’re looking to get out of your yoga practice. If you want something more stretchy & not physically intense, then try yin, restorative, or maybe even hatha. If you want a workout, go to a power class!
