The ABC’s of Your 123’s
Y is for Yoga, Part 2
The idea of Numerology is to connect with yourself, so too is the intent for yoga.
“If you want to fail at yoga, look around the room during class. If you want to succeed in yoga practice, look inside.” Tricia Gunberg

This little video clip shows you where I am at with my balance. As I try to convince more people of yoga's benefits, recording my efforts seems like a good idea. Doing this on lava rock was extra challenging. With the camera rolling, I had extra focus.
NOTE TO PRACTITIONERS: if you would like to contribute to this article with supporting statements- thank you in advanced. If you would like me to do a Numerology/Energy interpretation of any ailments, I would be happy to do so if you are contributing to this article.
My goals with this article(s)are:
A. Encourage people to do yoga by showing people yoga is so much more than what their body can do. We know why yoga is so good, but most people do not understand the depth of yogas benefits.
B. Give evidence of body-mind connections using Numerology and Louise Hays body of work.
C. Show, with examples, approaches that work for specific ailments/challenges based on Michael Brills body of work.
I would like to record case studies using numerology 1-9. Here are a few examples.
To find out your Life Path number, add all the digits of your birthday down to a compound digit and then to a single digit (If you would like to become part of this study I will do a Wellness Numerology reading for you. You can purchase a numerology reading here.) The compound digit as well as the single digit is called the Life Path. Look for any of the three (or four) digits below. How well do they match what is going on in your body and in your life? If you are a practitioner, does the Numerology for a client match their aliments?

1- (Creativity and Confidence) One is about leadership, moving forward and being in your body. Do you have issues with your legs? Do you stub your toes or have injuries to your lower body? APPROACH: While doing tadasana poses pay attention to your legs. Strengthen your legs so that you can move forward in life with ease and grace.
Note: If you have a 1 in your life path you are here to blaze your own trail and show the world your uniqueness. According to Dan Millman: “You are here to bring a positive creative energy into this world.”
Possible aliments: legs, constipation, reproductive issues, joint (doing for self, confidence), pain on left side: incoming responsibilities, pain on right side: perceived as a need to prove self
How Yoga helps: Twists help with constipation, internal organs and seeing from another perspective, improves leg strength
2- (Cooperation and Balance) This is about sensitivity and muscle tension. Before you can help others, you need to understand and attend to your own needs. You are here to show people how to live in harmony and therefore must create it within yourself.
I have a theory that people double jointed people or really flexible people have a 2 in their numerology.
Note: If you have a 2 in your Life Path - your motto needs to be: help if asked but only if you love the task (balance, harmony)
Possible aliments: stress related ailments, resentment, physical tension, ‘overly flexible’,
Standing in tadasana, is your body leaning back (resenting the past) or does it lean forward (anxiety: fear of the future)
How Yoga helps: Actual physical balance, strengthening,
3- (Creative Expression) All about creativity. The hips are your focus. Love on them and all the stuff in between them. Learn stretches that you can do at home and at work so you can keep your creative juices flowing
My tight hips example in the introduction.
Note: If you have a 3 in your life path…..

4- The building and step-by-step energy is about a solid foundation. ***4 issues Building health and wellness takes time. Give yourself a 4 year plan, take an assessment of your results after that much time. Take photos of yourself now in several positions (chose difficult ones) and each year for the next 4 years. I promise with only a 1x- 2x a week commitment you will make huge changes!
Note: If you have a 4 in your life path…..
How Yoga helps:
5- (Freedom and Discipline) This is about flexibility. Are you inflexible both in body and life? Do you fear change?
Note: If you have a 5 in your life path…..
How Yoga helps:
6- (Vision and Acceptance) Unconditional love is the energy of the six. The flip side is perfection (accepting things as they are is unconditional love). You might be avoiding a yoga class because you won’t be prefect at it.
Note: If you have a 6 in your life path…..
How Yoga helps:
7- (Trust and Openness) Trust is an issue. You are an expert on your body-this takes both practice and trust. Releasing thoughts, emotions and feelings takes trust.
I made this connection in a ‘ropes’ class. I was feeling very clumsy and heavy in most of my attempts to get up the wall. As I struggled (I was comparing myself to others in the class- I know this is a no-no!) I realized I didn’t trust myself. This realization came to me because once I got into a position I was fine. Crap! This is my life story and the reason I do not creatively express myself. I will continue to go to this class; working on strengthening both muscles of my body and the muscle of self-trust.
Note: If you have a 7 in your life path; you are here to trust the light, in yourself and others, and to share your inner beauty with the world.
Possible aliments: Heart issues, tightness around the chest, nervousness/anxiety.
