A Sensitive and Intuitive Approach to Healing whether it's an ailing spirit or a bad back!
“I am not a doctor nor do I have a physical therapy license. I treat the delusion of not knowing your Self and how to find your way past pain and suffering. I guide you, not treat you” Mukunda Stiles, Yoga Therapist
When you experience the immeasurable power and magic of yoga, how it has become an ally in getting you through difficulties life throws at you
You have first hand experience of the miracle of the body to repair and heal itself
You have deep gratitude for having yoga in your life,
it’s natural to want to share it with others
Is there something getting in the way?
When we travel to India each winter, we are not only running our yoga retreats but my favourite time is to go and meet the yogamalai team who make our products in India. Seeing our products being made and the opportunities we are giving many families is just delightful. Ahh it’s all in the principles of yoga - And just as the word can be translated into English as "joining", "uniting", "union", we feel overwhelmed and lucky to be united with real people instead of factories, who we can visit and see the real differences the work makes to their lives
We are so encouraged to be witnessing a growing recognition of the importance of Restorative Yoga and a number of studio timetables are creating slots for Restorative classes and many teachers are including elements of the practice in their own workshops
Do you have trouble relaxing? Our brains are so wired to ‘do, do, do’, it can be really difficult to ‘simply be’ for a while. For busy people, the concept of ‘doing nothing’ can feel pointless, uncomfortable and even empty. And stressing about relaxing can make things worse with all the trying, the self-talk about lack and should I.
If you've recently graduated from a yoga teacher training course, or gone off the boil with promoting your classes, how’s it going out there in the world?
Prepare for your new lease of life as a yoga teacher with a little guidance…I know you know this stuff but sometimes it helps to refresh your memory and get un-stuck!
Through your yoga teacher training course, you will have learnt how a class is structured, and by now, you should have some classes up and running, even if they are not as full as you’d like them to be.
HOW YOGA THERAPY CHANGED ME
It was during a Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy (PRYT) session that something quite profound was revealed to me – It was a mind-blowing experience that changed how I engage with my life, my fears and my joy. So, this pain in my neck had been around for a while, years in fact and showed no signs of going away. Yoga did not seem to be helping in the long term, I bought a new pillow, a new mattress, lay on my back with a cold bottle under my neck… but nothing seemed to shift this tightness
When you know someone who loves yoga, then the festive season is a great time to treat them to something they will love and use.
November has a beautiful clarity to it - as the nights draw in and the temperature drops, the quiet transition from Autumn into Winter takes place and colours of the leaves call our attention to the cycles of nature once again to offer insight and inspiration of how to be autumnal in the world.
Following a successful show in 2016, Yoga United decided to come back with something new and exciting for the Om Yoga Show 2017 in London, so we had three spaces instead of one – for our Yoga Products, Yoga Holidays and Yoga Education. We are still buzzing with energy from the wonderful success of the inspiring atmosphere that people created at this stunning venue. We felt extremely privileged to be part of such an event.
