Mid-June 2016
June is flying by!
Hopefully you are enjoying this wonderful start to Summer and spending time out of doors!  There is so much to do in our community during the summer...
we also hope that you are celebrating all the Dads in your life for this Fathers Day!
Kimberly May has penned a lovely poem in response to the tragedy this past week...
we hope you will take a moment to read it and reflect.

" Beggars can't be choosers - so Be a Chooser!"
is our theme for the month of June.  Such powerful words ~ just saying them can help you transform unforeseen circumstances from a fearful, victim-consciousness attitude to one of empowerment and confidence to handle whatever is in front of you.

Watch our Health Tip Video and listen to Melanie Tinsley's story.  She is our Practitioner of the Month!  Melanie had a back injury from years of lifting patients in her nursing career.  She chose powerfully to find a way to transcend and heal the pain!  If you've never participated in one of Melanie's Yamuna classes, Be a Chooser and join her class!  Or arrange a private Yamuna session -  you'll be so glad you did!

We hope to see you during this warm and wonderful month of June!

~ Love, Kim

Too much

Too many useless deaths
Too many tears
Too much fears
Too much pain
Too many weapons of hatred
Too much separation
When will it be that there's
Too much oneness
Too many hugs
Too much acceptance
Too much respect
Too much love
Too much compassion
We must rise above
We're all unique expressions of God's love
Let this love take us to solution to right action
A revolution of a new earth, a rebirth!
Let the old fall away today and let us take flight
Move closer to the light of tolerance with a new audience
Let love be our stance!
Stand up and be united
These words are not enough but we must say and do something to let
          you know your lives mattered to us!
What would Gandhi, Martin Luther King, and Mother Teresa do?
March, speak out, change laws, forgive, love one another, and be
          oneness, it's up to me and you!

-Kimberly May

Watch Our IIM Health Tip of The Month:
Be a Chooser!


Health Tip:  Beggars can't be choosers ~ so Be a Chooser!

Of course things are going to happen in life - but we don't have to be a victim.  We can recognize that the Universe always has our back.  We can choose to align with Divine Guidance and allow things to unfold.  You always have a choice so choose powerfully.  I'm here today with my colleague, Melanie Tinsley, who is going to tell us more about choosing powerfully for the highest good.

Melanie:  As a nurse I had my first back injury in 2007.  After surgery, I was still in pain and had difficulty walking.  I knew this was not the life God wanted for me.  I made a choice to explore other modalities.  I was guided through my Yoga instructor to Yamuna.  After 45 minutes in my first class, I had comfort and range of motion I hadn't felt in over a year.  I knew then I had found hope.  I made the choice to explore the work further and even became a Yamuna instructor.

Kim:  Thank you Melanie!  That is an amazing story and a great example of choosing powerfully.  Be a chooser!  If you need help choosing powerfully to create your health of mind, body and Spirit, give us a call.

We're reading: 
Catastrophic Care - Why Everything We Think We Know About Health Care is Wrong
by David Goldhill

" A phenomenal book.  He has the answers on how we can create a financially solvent health care system that works for everyone!  The current system cannot be sustained financially.  Health Care costs are the biggest reason for bankruptcy in America.  If our healthcare system was the best in the world, we might be able to justify it.  But the reality is that we rank 37th out of the top 40 industrialized Nations in healthcare outcomes.  Not only is our system expensive, our outcomes leave a lot to be desired!"  ~ Kim

Repair, realign & release your body with smart bodywork... When you experience constant pain, your sense of wellbeing, your ability to focus, and your hope start to fade.  Get your life back by realigning your bones, stimulating bone-tendon connection, and diminishing chronic issues like scoliosis, TMJ, back pain, and more...  Discover a logical, human approach to healing.  Yamuna Body Rolling works with your body to empower itself by stimulating deep into muscles and restoring proper bone alignment and tendon function.  Why wait on something this important?  Realign and start healing today!

About Melanie:  Melanie Tinsley has been providing the highest quality nursing care for over 25 years, mostly focused in the Intensive Care Unit.  After experiencing a physical trauma and chronic back pain, she fell in love with the healing power of Yamuna Body Rolling.  She was one of Louisville's first Certified Yamuna Body Rolling Instructors, and she is uniquely trained to help individuals deal with the bone-tendon issues that diminish daily quality of life.

What happens during a Yamuna session?  Melanie will help you realign your body, work into your muscle-tendon connections, and work toward eliminating pain in a class or one-on-one session.  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.  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.  Give Melanie a call!

Feldenkrais Playshop:   Tip Top Ankles! 
with Dorothy Henning,
Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner

Monday, June 20th ~ 6:30-8:00 PM

                  Tip Top Ankles!
Our ankles serve us every day!  They are at the "tip" of our legs and on the "top" of our feet!  They support us and adjust our alignment on uneven terrain such as grass, curbs and cobblestone.  They help us walk, run, kick a ball and dance!  In this Playshop we will explore with Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement how to help our ankles be in tip-top form, to be strong and mobile, to avoid a sprain!

Have you sprained your ankle in the past and it seems to be healed but it still bothers you or you still can't do everything you want?  Come explore how Feldenkrais can help you reclaim the movements you want!  Open to everybody!  Come discover how your ankles can be strong mobile players in your game of movement!  And due to the integrated relationship the ankles have with the knees and hips, it's good for them too!
