Our theme this month is
National Heart Health Month ~Exercise Your Heart with Love!" 

Welcome!  Our theme this month is Exercise Your Heart with Love!  Kimberly May explains in our video Health Tip of the Month that the heart is a muscle and can be exercised with Love!  It's a great reminder during this month of Valentine's Day... So expand your heart energy by exercising it with love.  Love is the one thing that you truly get more of when you give it away!
Are you a HEALTHCARE PROVIDER? On February 18th we are having our first "Self Care 4 Health Care!" event.   This night is for anyone who works in health care.  We recognize that health care providers are stressed, frustrated, and/or may have some degree of compassion fatigue or burnout.  All of our practitioners here at IIM will be available from 5:30-8:00pm the evening of the 18th to offer stress management therapies to our colleagues.  Give us a call or email us to find out more and RSVP.

" This is one of the most profound programs I've ever participated in (and I've done a LOT of programs) to help achieve inner peace and wellbeing.  I did the program with Sadhguru in California October 25-27th.  Immediately I wanted to share this with everyone in Louisville.  How thankful I am to know that this program is scheduled here in town March 12-15th!  Give yourself the gift of doing this amazing workshop!"

   Experts say about 75% of overeating is caused by emotional eating.  On top of that, being overweight can be one of the biggest causes of emotional stress in its own right.  Weight loss doesn't have to be stressful.  Stopping Emotional Eating:  The emWave Stress and Weight Management Program may be the only weight loss method that doesn't focus on what you eat, but rather on what you feel.  This program will show you how to manage reactions and clear emotional undercurrents until a new baseline behavior and a better relationship with food and eating is established.  It also facilitates other weight management processes, by helping you add the core values of your heart to your wellness adventures.

Yamuna Body Rolling
with Melanie Tinsley, RN BS,
Certified Yamuna Instructor

This Yamuna Body Rolling technique will impact the bones of the face, releasing stress patterns, restoring balance and increasing mental awareness and a sense of well-being.  Helpful also for the sinuses, releasing TMJ stress patterns and relieving puffiness... see an instant brightness in your face!
The practice of Yamuna  is a great way to begin listening to your body.  It is a stress-free way to start positive dialog between your mind and your body, increasing your body awareness and sustainability.  Using specially designed Yamuna balls you can find relief from pain... and the hope and possibility of healing while lessening the wear and tear on the body and promoting sustainability.
Yamuna Body Rolling is a completely original fitness and therapy practice that focuses on the bone, tendon and muscle connection. With the use of gravity, breath and a specially designed ball, you impact your bone structure. As a complimentary and alternative therapy, Yamuna works with the body in a logical, systematic approach to unwind muscles, subsequently releasing tension on the skeleton and making space in the joints. Whether you want to enhance your current workout or increase your mobility and comfort, Yamuna has a routine for you. Walk taller, step lighter and increase your body awareness. Start just where you are!
