Overcoming Fear and the 7th Rib

In the Book of Genesis, God creates Eve from Adam’s rib. It’s a curious aspect of the story, but with the help of yogic understanding, it becomes less diaphrammysterious and more applicable to your everyday life.

The seventh rib encases the diaphragm, one of the most important muscles in the body, the one that literally moves air in and out of your lungs.

There is a flow to breath, one that gets interrupted when you experience fear. This dynamic is the source of the rib’s creative power. Just as the upstairs neighbor, the kidneys, purify the body’s water and emotions, the diaphragm and the flexible structure of the seventh rib have a role in purifying the breath of anything that disrupts the flow, namely fear.

Without fear, without the specter of “what you can’t do,” nothing is left but open, creative space—for you to write, draw, sing or dance to your heart’s contentment.

P.S. Practice overcoming fear everyday with your breath.  Just CLICK HERE and enjoy our 14 day FREE trial.

What People Are Saying. . .
I just completed Michele’s 90-day MORE program. As Michele will remind you, if you decide to study with her, things don’t happen to us; they happen for us. Michele happened for me just when I needed what she is committed to teaching. Commitment is the key word because she is always thinking of what she can do to help others live happy, successful lives filled with joy. She takes care to really understand what each of her students needs and instinctively suggests just the right message, yoga exercise, meditation, food, experience, etc., that will resonate with them to help them courageously live the life they want. Michele is a gift you deserve to give yourself when you’re finally ready to live your best, authentic life.

...I have suffered from emotional eating for 6 years, during which I have juggled and switched through different therapists and treatment options. I continued to feel "stuck" as the approaches focused on the past and why I acquired my disease. ...Michele's plan of remaining present- right here, right now- in addition to helping me choose love for myself, has allowed me to grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually... Michele is a true gift from God.

The benefits have been significant. My reason for doing this yoga is to improve and maintain good health. Each morning class provides me with the motivation to get up and improve my physical and mental strength. I also think one of the greatest things about Michele’s 365 Yoga Course is I can join a class any day of the week, drop in at any time during the class and leave at a time that works for me and my schedule, from anywhere I am.
