Yoga for Health

Reuniting Body, Breath & Mind

Yoga as Balance

If life is tight and stressed, loosen up your Yoga practice. When your shoulders feel knotted; roll them back where they belong and do some gentle whole body stretching and breathe with those stretches. If you feel there is not enough quite time for yourself; sit for 10 minutes and observe your breath. When life’s […]

Spring Forward

Just like daylight saving………….let’s ‘spring forward’ into our practice. Grateful to the warrior poses for keeping us warm and mobile; we now leave our winter practice behind, and work with the rising energies of spring. Spring is about growth, creativity, renewal, and cleansing.  Spring energy is assertive, it is the season of new beginnings, fresh […]

Let Yoga Blossom

Yoga is not a practice for hoarding; it isn’t a possession as such. Let your practice of Yoga go – let it blossom; let it be what you need it to be.  Don’t keep it cooped up – same same………….it will go stale if you do. If you haven’t time to add something new to […]

Homework

Giving homework is to encourage you to practice your Yoga at home; it is neither a threat nor challenge. When you feel like practicing Yoga, how do you get started, what do you do first, how do you decide which postures to practice, how do you end the practice? First Give yourself permission to practice […]

Yoga is yours

Yoga is yours I love sharing my passion and knowledge of Yoga; but…Yoga is yours – Your journey. We come together in class to learn from each other; yes, I learn from you too; but the study of Yoga and the journey is very much an individual experience. It is pleasing that some of you […]

Term Two Evolves

Now that we are 5 weeks into our term; our Autumnal theme is really starting to evolve. Those hip-opening warm ups and poses have certainly indicated where our bodies have got stuck; but slowly and gently we shall try and ease ourselves into mobility. The ‘standing’ sequence is taking shape; so this week we will […]

Autumnal Grounding

As we say goodbye to summer and daylight saving; we shall resume our practice by ‘getting grounded’ for autumn. With the heat and humidity gone, I’m hoping our energy will begin to find its balance and pick up again. ‘Getting Grounded’ means doing the best we can to gain comfort sitting on the floor, while […]

Good BREATH words

There are many ways to practice Yoga – and a Yoga practice does not always need to involve a mat.  Next time you are feeling a little ‘yoga-ish’, but not necessarily physically inclined ; take a paper and pen, find somewhere peaceful and sit quietly…………………with your breath. Think of as many ‘Good Breath Words’ as […]

Where in the World?

What a pleasure it is to welcome and share our yoga classes with visitors from outside our district, or country.  Maybe they are far from home, the surroundings, culture, language and weather unfamiliar. But once their mat is unrolled, the practice of yoga takes over.  A practice that is steady, stable, and reliable.  A practice […]
