BUILD INNER STRENGTH AND FACE CHALLENGES WITH COURAGE

The word courage comes from the French word for heart and building courage is about developing our inner strength by changing our ‘heartset’.  Our yoga practice can support us to develop physical, emotional, mental and spiritual courage. We need to draw on our strength and courage for all sorts of reasons: major changes in our lives; unexpected events that make us question our direction; illness amongst family and friends;  and even the stresses and strains of daily living can test us.

Heart Opening Yin

In yin yoga we hold poses for minutes. The poses in this heart-opening Yin Yoga class are focused on the heart meridian, and the poses will help you to open your shoulders and heart to all that life has to offer. Quietly energising, because most of the poses are back-bends, you may not want to do this class straight before sleep. A perfect antidote for after a long day’s work with the gentle energising and back and shoulder opening, this class will help you to settle into the evening. You may need two bricks or blocks, a bolster and a sandbag, but improvisation with cushions and books is also encouraged!

The Jewel of the Lotus Heart - Yoga,Qigong and Mindfulness

In Tibetan, there’s a mantra known as Om mani padme Om, or Hail the jewel in the lotus heart. The mantra suggests that through our practices, we can begin to polish a jewel that resides inside the lotus petals of our heart. When this polished jewel begins to reflect radiant light in all directions, we begin to awaken our innate qualities of wisdom and compassion. This mindfully paced gentle practice will integrate vinyasa yoga, qigong and mindfulness practices that can help the jewel of our lotus heart shine.

Embrace Your Essence (2): Empower

How we approach our daily life has an effect on our moods and our mindset. When we feel disempowered and unsteady, we get caught up in the pace of life, we get swept up by drama and get swayed off our centre. This sequence will help you to find that centre-point, that steadiness that you need to feel empowered and grounded. Being empowered helps you to act from your higher self, that space in you that always knows. This is a mindfully slow sequence, suitable for most bodies, with a focus on heart-opening and opening into your power but softly.

Wake Up & Glow

Take agency over how you want to feel today and cause an effect on your life. Are you living in reaction to life? It is all too tempting to live up in our heads, entertained by our busy minds only to be reduced to our thoughts. Our thoughts effect our feelings and our feelings cause an affect on our thoughts. We don’t get to choose what happens to us in a day, but we can choose how we react or respond to what is happening. How do you want to feel today? How do you want to influence life today? How do you want to celebrate life today? You are the artist of your day, set yourself up for success by taking agency over how you want to feel today, rather than leaving it up to the outer world to decide for you. This is living from the inside out. “Happiness is an inside job.” – William Arthur Ward Suggested props: 2 same sized blocks – are always my go to for having under my hands to minimize compression in the soft tissues of my hips in some of the lunge shaped poses.
