Wellness Yoga….

Did you know there are 8 parts to yoga. Yama (attitudes toward our environment), Niyama (attitudes toward ourselves), Asana (physical postures), Pranayama (restraint or expansion of the breath), Pratyahara (withdrawal of the senses), Dharana (concentration), Dhyana (meditation) and Samadhi (complete integration). It is the Ultimate Life Hack. Giving Tools of how to live Life!

Over the years when I have been unwell Yoga has been my saviour. I have tried different Complementary Treatments like Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine and Physiotherapy I always find Yoga is the one way that helps me back to Wellness. Yoga has become a way to live my life. It has allowed me to become physically, mentally strong and mindful. The mat represents my home, the environment represents my life and how I do the postures represents on how I respond to life. 

Having attended various courses around the world, becoming a yoga teacher has brought my coaching to another level. It has made yoga and mindfulness fun for kids and bringing all aspects in adults yoga classes, a gift that I have embraced. Kids have fun during their classes, while adult classes combine Yin/Yang yoga (combining all 8 Limbs) with Yoga Nidra. The class is available to Beginners, Intermediate to Advanced practitioners.

Yin/Yang yoga has its roots in China in the Taoist concepts of yin — a feminine, passive, cooling energy — and yang — a masculine, dynamic, warming energy. Yin/Yang yoga practice uses both types of yoga to provide both physical and spiritual balance. Combining the two styles of yoga, Yin/Yang yoga improves energy and fitness while promoting relaxation and healing.

Yoga Nidra, or yogic sleep as it is commonly known, is an immensely powerful technique and induces total physical, mental, and emotional relaxation. It’s a great way to end a yoga class for children and adults.

Here’s how Yoga Nidra helped eight year old Kavishree

Not only is yoga great for balance, strength and confidence, it gives tools on living life. It’s fun to teach and fun to do.
