Get out of your head and into your body.

Yoga helps you tune out from your surroundings and re-connect with your body. Yoga sequences can help you increase your flexibility, build strength and calm your mind. When you start focusing on your light and slow breathing and synchronising your breath with moving your body, it can help you create inner awareness while concentrating your attention on the present moment.   

Yoga is the Sanskrit word for union and refers to a variety of unions including the one between your body and your mind. Yoga asana, the physical practice of yoga, is about being ‘in’ your body.

 

At times, we get sidetracked by distractions, like our body image, with our mind wandering and a constant chit chat in our head and this is only human. Rather than focusing on the outer world, yoga helps reminding us to be accepting of and to be happy in our body and to help find a deep inner peace.

A yoga practice is a great way to re-connect with your body and tuning in by listening to what it is telling you. The yoga poses help you not only to get more flexible and strong, they also help you focus your mind. Through the focus, you start to slow down into the moment.

 

When you are in the present and undistracted, then you can begin listening in and understanding your body better, both physically and energetically and finding a joyful inner calm.

Slow

Flow Yoga

Re-connect with your body through slow flow yoga. It can help increase your flexibility, build strength and calm your mind.

Practicing slow flow yoga, you will move a bit more slowly and hold your poses for longer. The yoga poses are sequenced to allow for deeper immersion to help you get more flexible and strengthen your body, as well as focus and calm you. With the hectic lifestyle most of us lead, yoga is a great antidote to the daily rush allowing you to breathe and move at a slower pace.

 

The emphasis is on the breath, to help activate the parasympathetic nervous system, helping your body and mind unwind. The goal of this yoga practice is to help you feel calm and rejuvenated.

Patanjali's Yoga Sutras

“The world is your own projection.”

Be careful of your thoughts, for your thoughts become your words. Be careful of your words, for your words become your actions. Be careful of your actions, for your actions become your habits. Be careful of your habits, for your habits become your character. Be careful of your character, for your character becomes your destiny.

Slow Flow: Focus on hips download sheet for practicing at home.

Hip openening poses are a fundamental part for any yoga practice. Tightness in your hips can lead to problems like poor functional movement, lower back pain, a misaligned spine and other common injuries. Improving the flexibility of your hips can help posture, improve your circulation, strengthening your balance, reducing stress and boost your overall wellbeing. A gentle hips yoga practice is an excellent complement to other forms of exercise, such as running, cycling, golf and HIIT and many others.

Ideally practice hip opening poses regularly. Do hip stretching poses slowly and do not overdo them. Hip stretching should be practiced slowly, gently and carefully. When doing any yoga poses you should not feel pain, be mindful not to push yourself past your limits and pay attention to your knees. Do not let the knees twist in the poses and ensure that any rotation movements come from the hips so that the knees stay safe. Do not force yourself in to any yoga pose. If you feel discomfort or even pain stop immediately.
