Switch Off the TV

Regain your life

Create time

Back in 2012 I had minimal goods as a result of a deep desire for Union through Yoga, however I still owned a TV which I used to watch a weekly movie. As I read The Camino by Shirley Maclaine, I delved deep into where my desires were planted and I discovered that TV is constantly selling us...

Falling is flying
Faith means we get back up again

Falling into the breath takes us to places we never even knew existed.

At the end of yogasana (the physical practice) you should feel lighter and clearer because you just let the heaviness and clutter within literally fall away into the earth and leave you. No longer weighed down by fea...

April; Moments To Pause

To simply sit and receive;
that is the power of Yoga
 

This month’s newsletter is a little late. I’d been pondering over whether to send one earlier but realised quite soon that I was not ready before this moment. I needed time to reflect and I needed time to prepare. As all things go, this was art of a life less...

Energetically, those suffering eating disorders or low self-esteem suffer a distinct lack of energy in the lower 3 chakras.

 

Muladhara is the root chakra providing our connection to the Earth (body) and our energetic centre of proprioception; feeling in the physical body. To re-energise this centre we use rooting, standing asanas to es...

Literally means ‘to stretch that which is everywhere’. These breathing exercises consciously control the prana within.

 

Lengthening the inhalation increases the prana absorbed. Directing prana via certain currents (vayus) through the body clears energetic blockages (samskaras and granthis). Thus kundalini shakti can travel uninhibited...

Sometimes life can be demanding and things happen to us that bring us down. Part of the medicine is to surround yourself with positive people; our teacher Claire had a lovely saying about people either being like rocks, pulling you and weighing you down or they are like balloons, lifting you higher and being light. Seek out the people...

All experiences leave an energetic trace named ‘samskara’ like a mental scar determining our future actions (karma). Let these samskara settle and build up and they can become emotional knots ‘granthis’ which block our whole esoteric system and cause numerous psychological conflicts. Most people who suffer body image disorders, low se...

Self-disciplines; how we should act to ourselves.

 

Saucha: purity.

We are what we absorb. The protein, minerals and vitamins we eat literally become the building blocks of who we are. Learning how to eat a pure, wholegrain diet can be of great benefit to everyone. Food is medicinal in itself. Ayurveda (Indian medicine) and Yoga itself p...

The following sequences are ones we have created for our personal practice. There are times when we all can feel out of sync with life, blue, glum or sad. Being yogic does not mean that one becomes immune to the darkness; suffering and sadness is necessary to realise the joy of life. But it’s important to realise the silver lining of...

Ashtanga; Yama (1st)

 

Universal rules of conduct; how we should behave toward one another (including ourselves) for optimal universal happiness. We are all linked by an inner divinity or atman and we share this planet so our individual actions affect everyone universally.

  • Ahimsa is non-violence.

    Food is nourishment and provides ou...
