Yoga is where we experience the union of mind, body and spirit: it is exercise for both the body and the soul, where it is possible to find strength, calm and an awareness of new found positivity in our busy world, In my own life, yoga has provided an endless source of inspiration, through 17 years of practice and teaching ,yoga helps me to lead a more harmonious life. I began teaching to spread the love and to help others feel the power of yoga, and to begin their own journeys in to this wonderful practice and lifestyle.
As my practice is for life, when my beautiful daughter came into my world, i realised the huge benifits of yoga postnately for mum and baby, so i set out on a new path in my yoga journey. I trained with Uma Dinsmore -Tuli in Mother and Baby Yoga and Toddler Yoga.
The yoga asanas/poses improve flexibility, strengthens and tones the body and helps us to change postural habits of a lifetime which, if ignored can create imbalance on the body. When practiced often our practice helps to calm and quiten the mind which leads to a more positive and harmonious life.
Yoga is a light, which once lit, will never dim. The better your practice, the brighter the flame.
Undisturbed calmness of mind is attained by cultivating friendliness toward the happy, compassion for the unhappy, delight in the virtuous, and indifference toward the wicked.
The yoga sutras of Patanjali
Yoga is about clearing away whatever is in us that prevents our living in the most full and whole way. With yoga, we become aware of how and where we are restricted — in body, mind, and heart — and how gradually to open and release these blockages. As these blockages are cleared, our energy is freed. We start to feel more harmonious, more at one with ourselves. Our lives begin to flow — or we begin to flow more in our lives.
Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.
