Emoji Reflexology!

Every time I see the thumps up emoji πŸ‘πŸΌ,  I think of a. hitch hiking (between Murau and Stadl, Austria in the 80s - long story; those were the days) but b. these days more so of the “thumbwalk” which is a reflexology technique.

Scrolling through the emoji menu looking for just the right emoji many a times, I came to the realization that I could probably do Reflexology education/communicate via emojis. Take a look...

Invited to a Non-Traditional but Sacred Reflexology Path: Banyan Tree

Banyan Tree 
I was in Taiwan in October 2017 to attend the ICR Conference and Gina Stewart’s RVP at Garden of Hope in Taitung.  

I was very much looking forward to experiencing Reflexology paths. After doing our morning constitutional* in Taipei by the Tamsui River after our first night walking back to the hotel we passed through a small park called Yuquan Park where seniors and some younger people were exercising.  

A man said hi and invited us to join him and other seniors who were walking on the roots of this banyan tree.  How did he know?  Was it written all over our faces?  We took off our shoes at the edge and embarked on a "session of sacred tree reflexology."   Banyan trees are considered sacred.**. Regal felt we were invited into a tradition and that it was a very warm welcome, I could not agree more.

HAPPY NEW LUNAR YEAR; Year of the Dog!

Ringo (Sean Casey )
The Year of the Dog begins on February 16, 2018. 
I am taking this as an invitation to continue to raise awareness about the subtle, yet powerful benefits of Reflexology for our canine friends and to spread positive vibes all around.   
I recently found out that there are 600.000.000 strays (SOURCE: ZEROSTRAYPAWJECT) worldwide!  Please consider adopting an animal looking for a home once you are ready.

Reflexology Path? Taipei City Wall

City Wall Taipei
The very pretty urban park at City Wall entailed a slope with mulch surface as well as a stone path (reflexology path see below photo).  This one was a very pleasant one with big flat uniform stones.

I loved taking off my shoes walking back and forth between the Beiman Subway Station and our hotel in downtown Taipei.

However, I never saw anyone else taking off their shoes, and yes, the area was never very busy when we passed through there, although there is heavy motor cycle traffic.

Could it be that this was not an official reflexology path?  I noticed other areas embellished with river rocks, at times in unusual places, e.g. under a bench.  And there were these tiny pebble squares along a sidewalk which I started referring to as reflexology paths for πŸ‘Ά.

Taiwan: The first Reflexology Path

Regal about to work his foot reflexes
The first day in Taipei (Oct 2017), we headed to a park at the river.  We both are river people.  I made sure our hotel was in walking distance to the Tamsui.
We came across this Reflexology path :-); it was literally screwed into the ground.  Wait, I thought they had real pebble paths in Asia.  Not what I expected at all.  I was perplexed and amused and forgot to walk on it (jet leg), but Regal did.  This was an indication, however how popular reflexology was in Taiwan.  Great.   There will be additional posts on Taiwanese reflexology paths.  It was so much fun to experience them.

Thanks for visiting.

India Part Thirteen: Teaching Chair Yoga at Shri Jasnath Asan

Getting ready for pre-sunrise yoga
I had no idea these photos existed, but so pleased they do.  Many thanks to my buddy Michelle from Ireland who shared these on Facebook.  

Yoga at Shri Jasnath Asan took place before sunrise and breakfast Monday-Friday.  Here we are getting ready for my chair yoga class; love the mood in the room, us all being bundled up; it was a bit chilly in the morning.

India Part Twelve: Reflexology Shri Jasnathi Style

Reflexology Tent at Shri Jasnath Asan
Re-grounding in a colorful tent at Shri Jashanth Asan (Panchala Siddha) at the edge of the Thar desert in India.  It was a wonderful experience to work and stay there.

November 2016.  Part of me was feeling a bit guilty about not being at home to cry with others after the elections.  Regal told me that everyone was so upset, and people were hugging the next day during dogs off-leash hours.
