Spring clean your lifestyle!

Ahhhhhh the sun is coming out and it is time to enjoy longer evenings and brighter days again. Nature is blossoming with fresh vigour.
Are you feeling a new sense of motivation? Any new ideas and inspirations coming through? As you breathe a deep sigh of relief that the sun is coming out and the summer wardrobe can too. Why not take this opportunity to detox your clothes and your lifestyle? Enjoy plenty of space and clarity to make the most of the delicious new spring-time energies.

Begin by detoxing the clothes and shoes that no longer fit or that you feel good in.

How to do this when there are emotional attachments.

Simply give each piece a mark out of 10 for how good you feel when you see yourself in it!

Anything under 7 out of 10 can head straight for the recycling bin (or off to the vintage or charity shop).

Then check through your environment beginning with your bedroom.
We are constantly calibrating and synthesising our environment at an unconscious level so when you have bits and stuff and clutter around you, even subtly hiding in your surrounds, you are cluttering up your sensory airwaves with a crackling grey matter. It prevents you from seeing and hearing and feeling clearly, it can cut you off from your sense of inner-guidance and intuition.

By clearing your space you are clearing energy and creating a space for you to think, feel and breathe more easily. You may notice how much lighter and brighter you feel, almost immediately! Are you emotionally attached to pieces given to you by friends, yet feel they are in the way? Put them somewhere special and store with the contents clearly marked so that you can reconnect with them for doses of nostalgia and positive reconnections.

Surround yourself with some happy, positive and warm and loving photos from nature to nurturing family and friends to remind yourself that you are loved, protected, cared for and supported.

Enjoy ever more feelings of relaxation and comfort, so that you can fully recharge and if in your office space, enjoy an influx of plenty of opportunities.

COMING UP – Special promotion on Fasting Retreat at Buddha House.

What is yoga?

Yoga, a Sanskrit word meaning ”to yoke,” or “to unite” is a set of disciplines that address the body-mind split in many powerful ways. Meditation, concentration, physical postures, breath control and so forth are some of the better known ones. Certainly, the physical postures, “asanas” are the best known form, and contain much of the benefit of the other branches. Yoga is particularly good for the back and joints.

Yoga  originated in India more than three thousand years ago. Its purpose is to help each one of us achieve our highest potential and to experience enduring health and happiness. With Yoga, we can extend our healthy, productive years far beyond the accepted norm and, at the same time, improve the quality of our lives.

Benefits of yoga

Physical flexibility: Stretching your tight body in new ways will help it to become more flexible, bringing greater range of motion to muscles and joints. Over time, you can expect to gain flexibility in your hamstrings, back, shoulders, and hips.

Strength: Many yoga poses require you to support the weight of your own body in new ways, including balancing on one leg (such as in Tree pose) or supporting yourself with your arms (such as in Downward Facing Dog). Some exercises require you to move slowly in and out of poses, which also increases strength.

Muscle tone: As a by-product of getting stronger, you can expect to see increased muscle tone. Yoga helps shape long, lean muscles.

Pain Prevention: Increased flexibility and strength can help prevent the causes of some types of back pain. Many people who suffer from back pain spend a lot of time sitting at a computer or driving a car. That can cause tightness and spinal compression, which you can begin to address with yoga. Yoga also improves your alignment, both in and out of class, which helps prevent many other types of pain.

Better Breathing: Most of us breathe very shallowly into the lungs and don’t give much thought to how we breathe. Yoga breathing exercises, called Pranayama, focus the attention on the breath and teach us how to better use our lungs, which benefits the entire body. Certain types of breath can also help clear the nasal passages and even calm the central nervous system, which has both physical and mental benefits.

Mental Calmness: Yoga asana practice is intensely physical. Concentrating so intently on what your body is doing has the effect of bringing a calmness to the mind. Yoga also introduces you to meditation techniques, such as watching how you breathe and disengagement from your thoughts, which help calm the mind.

Stress Reduction: Physical activity is good for relieving stress, and this is particularly true of yoga. Because of the concentration required, your daily troubles, both large and small, seem to melt away during the time you are doing yoga. This provides a much-needed break from your stressors, as well as helping put things into perspective. The emphasis yoga places on being in the moment can also help relieve stress, as you learn not to dwell on past events or anticipate the future. You will leave a yoga class feeling less stressed than when you started.

Body Awareness: Doing yoga will give you an increased awareness of your own body. You are often called upon to make small, subtle movements to improve your alignment. Over time, this will increase your level of comfort in your own body. This can lead to improved posture and greater self-confidence.
