last Beginners Course this year

Hi Everyone,

I probably shouldn’t be saying that Christmas is round the corner yet, but I feel that time runs faster and faster every year.

So before our life gets really hectic in December let’s see if we can do something to prepare for all the stress that sometimes comes with Christmas preparations, shopping, the busyness and overindulgence.
Before we start giving and sharing we need to find the energy and balance within ourselves. We need a strong, happy body and a calm and clear mind.
I think that the beginners course we’ve been running for nearly two years is a perfect way to learn how to stay grounded and enjoy what you love about Christmas the most instead of stressing about it.

Let’s learn how to breathe through it, stay calm and keep our body in a good shape.
Yes…. yoga tools and techniques we learn in this course can help with that ?

And this is going to be our last beginners course this year !!!

More details and booking here.

The course will cover the below sequence of postures called Sun Salutation, the most popular sequence (vinyasa) in any vinyasa yoga class. We learn how to come into the pose, how to hold it and how to move to the next one, which muscles to contract, which parts of the body to relax, where to gaze and how to breathe.
And how to find stillness in the movement ?

To stay inspired and keep practising

Hi Friends,

Since I started discovering yoga I’ve been constantly looking for guidance and some inspiration to keep me motivated and on track.
I’ve noticed certain benefits of yoga after few weeks or months of practice, such as less pain in my lower back, deeper breathing and calmer mind. It was the best motivation to keep going.
But at some point your mind may get bored with your body doing the same over and over again. And you may think your body will never be able to do this or that pose. It may be true, may be not.

Some of the yoga poses will feel easier in your body than others, some of them really challenging and some absolutely out of reach… at least this’s what we may be telling ourselves. For me if the pose required more upper body strength or being upside down I’d do anything to avoid even trying it ?
One side of me was so inspired by hundreds of photos of advanced yoga poses on social media and the other was saying: you’re gonna break your neck if you try this.

Over time I started training my mind to stop criticizing all the time and training my body to be steady, mobile and ready for more advanced poses.
Taking small steps and repeating until you feel your body gets stronger, lighter and ready to go further is the key to go deeper into your yoga practice. Persistence and patience does pay off.

Sometimes I’m recording my own yoga practice, mainly to see what I’m doing, how I’m moving my body. And I put this video together as a reminder that sometimes things don’t look perfect, sometimes we may be disappointed with our body, with what it looks like, with what it can or cannot do. It’s important to remember that sometimes it takes more than one try for things to work. And it takes some determination and patience.

So don’t give up on your body. It’s a wonderful vehicle that should carry you through this life with joy and courage.

Be brave,
Stay with your practice,
Keep consciously moving your body with the breath,
Look for inspirations,
Ask questions,
Experience,
Help your body reach beyond the point your mind thinks is the limit,
And remember you’re good the way you are ?
See you on the mat ?
