I have recently launched the yoga section on my website and it is available free for anybody who wishes to learn the poses. I love what I do and I want to share this with you to empower you towards a more balanced and healthier lifestyle. Yoga is a personal practice in which we connect with our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies. I encourage you to keep your practice consistent and most importantly to be patient with yourself. Yoga is not about doing a pose to the fullest, instead it is about the journey of you getting in the pose. Learn to observe yourself during each of the poses and see what is happening for you mentally, physically and emotionally in every pose. Our body is an amazing yet complex mechanism which we must nurture and nourish so that it continues to develop, grow and open towards new experiences.
It’s important to note that no matter if you are a beginner or an experienced yogi, in the practice of yoga it’s best to always keep an open, beginner mindset. Each time, embrace each pose with openness and willingness to explore yourself and your body further. Be gentle with yourself and kind with your body. Every asana/yoga pose has its own energy that it brings for the body, so take your time and understand where your body is at during the process. Let it unfold with time, practice and discipline. Let go of your ego when you are on your yoga mat and just be one with your breath and your body. Set no expectations, but instead set an intention at the beginning of each practice. This can be something like a short personal statement that you take with you throughout your yoga session. Look at your yoga practice as one which will bring you on a journey towards self-discovery, and not an exercise routine to tone your body. Practicing yoga can absolutely tone your muscles, stretch your body and improve flexibility, but don’t limit yourself to body image expectations because yoga is much deeper than that. Breathe in deeply and exhale just the same. Let your breath guide you into the poses and don’t resist, but instead simply surrender.
Most importantly, keep yourself safe during your yoga practice. You can do this sequence in the comfort of your own home, however please note that you will need some space for the body to move freely and preferably in a well aired/ventilated room. Alternatively, if you choose to do this outside in your backyard or on the beach, please choose a flat surface which you can place your mat. You can use blankets to support your joints in certain poses, bolsters or blocks to aid you into a pose and of course a mat which separates a hard surface floor from your body. (familiarise yourself with the yoga props here) Read all contraindications prior to doing each pose and check with your medical practitioner if you have any concerns or health related problems/injuries which may affect your yoga practice with these poses.
Finally embrace yourself, your body, your emotional self, your mental abilities, your spirituality. Let yourself fully take on this yoga journey with an open heart and a willingness to explore yourself.
