Environmental Wellness explores the benefits of syncing our lives with the rhythms of nature. By practicing particular modalities that center around the natural world, the long term benefits can be life altering. By using nature as your guide, you can strengthen your mind and body so you may be more receptive to a path that can lead you to success.
We keep our minds healthy through meditation, mindful interactions with the planet and by creating a "breathing" space somewhere in our homes or offices. Meditation is a gentle tool to unwind and decompress our overstimulated minds. To maintain our health, we must take time to quiet and refresh our thoughts. By being mindful of our environment and the planet, we are actively choosing to be a part of it in a positive way. This is practiced outdoors in our gardens or by walking and interacting with plants and wildlife. Nestled in our homes, we must create a space that can reflect the peace we seek in our daily lives. It is free of clutter and objects that are not calming in nature.
BareRoots philosophy to keep our bodies healthy is by using wild medicine and through the practice of Yoga. "Wild Medicine," or herbal medicine is practiced with the use of herbs either as preventative care or to nurture an acute illness. Environmental Wellness contributes the power of plants to optimum health because they not only cleanse, and detoxify but they also provide long term nourishment for your everyday health needs. Another practice we include in syncing ourselves with the natural world and keeping our bodies healthy is through Yoga. Primarily with BareRoot's services, the Yoga we practice is Restorative Yoga. By moving more slowly and remaining grounded through in depth floor postures, we can root down into the earth and draw from the strength it provides. The postures are held for several minutes at a time giving us the flexibility to improve our asana and to bring a focus to our intention of being present and listening to our bodies.
These practices are integrative. Like all of BareRoots services, one is not absent from the other. We can mingle modalities to suit the needs of YOU. The blending of services is welcomed and encouraged so you may accomplish your goals and carry out your intentions.
