Power Practice #05: Prevent and Recover from Burnout

Did you know that “burnout” is a clinical term, not a slang one?

Burnout is the very real physical and emotional result of long-term stress that leads to a complete lack of joy or pleasure in life, replaced by a pervasive sense of panic. It’s a sad, scary and lonely place to be.

That’s why it’s so important to us to be able to share this practice with our tribe of high-achieving power women. Kundalini yoga teacher Trista Gipple compassionately leads us though “Prevent and Recover from Burnout,” a guided meditation specifically designed to rejuvenate our parasympathetic nervous systems while reminding us that the energy to live the inspired truth of who we are begins to flow with simple awareness.
