    Finding Balance: What the Martial Art of Aikido Can Teach Us About Our Health

    in Self Help

    Authentic Health with Traci Philips & Rob Payo

    Over the course of the day, we hold a large degree of tension in our bodies, often meeting life head on with brute force.  This tension becomes a way of life that can lead to illness and energy drain. It can affect our relationships and impair how we deal with conflict and change.

    Aikido is a modern, non-violent, non-aggressive Japanese martial art developed early in the 20th century.  It is a system of self-defense techniques using circular movements that blend with the attack and energy of an opponent. Aikido is a way of coordinating both body and mind through the discipline of learning and training technique, thereby energizing the body and increasing awareness.

    Even if you’ve never practiced Aikido, learning about this fascinating form of martial arts can teach you important lessons on how to attain better balance in your life and thereby gain better health.

    Join us for this episode of Authentic Health with Traci Philips and Rob Payo when we talk with Frank Apodaca,  founder of Deep River Aikikai and 6th dan Aikido instructor. Frank will share some basic tenets of aikido that can provide insight on how you can live a more balanced life. He’ll also share his thoughts on the value of movement and how aikido can be seen as a means of fitness that challenges your body and mind to adapt and change and develop more fluidly.

    Traci Philips, CHHC is the owner of That Certain Way To Wellness, offering Holistic Health & Lifestyle Coaching

    As a wellness coach, Rob Payo understands the value of small but meaningful changes that people can make in leading healthier lives.

    Celebration of Aikido in Memory of Sensei Karl Geis

    in Spirituality

    Aikido is the Way of Spirit Harmony in life. This martial art has transformed its roots as a fighting to survive art, jutsu, into its higher form of expression as a Do art. This means it has transcended its form and teachings to be of a more spiritual expression while still being a powerful form of self defense that is effective even in dealing with today's modern street fighting dangers.

    It has the added benefit of opening its practitioners to insights about their ego self and their principled SELF.  Aikido aligns beautifully within the Unity of Oneness and SELFGnosis that we address each week with our listeners.

    Karl Geis, who recently passed away, has been Will Gable's beloved Sensei for over 35 years. Will has learned much and passes his learning along to students in the Oklahoma City area.

    Today's show is dedicated to Karl Geis Sensei. We will share our memories and his wisdom insights. We hope to interview some of his students at this celebration honoring his memory and his contributions to the art of Aikido and Judo with his unique approach that seems to dance in circles dispelling harm. He developed what is known in the world as Kihara Aikido.  Join us today and celebrate his memory and gifts.  Thank you.

    All to Love, Will Gable and Sharon Quinn.
