The Fullness of Life
Now the sun is high in the sky and finally out, its a traditional time for celebration, when the work of planting crops has been completed and the harvest not yet arrived. Appreciate the fullness of life with your yoga practice by placing your yoga mat outside and using your sun salutation to thank the sun for all the nourishment it provides to support the life of humans, animals and plants. Remember to keep well hydrated so the heat of the sun energy is tempered by the cooling energy of water. Our new water bottles work on an ancient Japanese system using natural charcoal so you can purify your tap water on the go.
We like a nice ancient system in the yoga world so here's another ancient practice for summer - why not make some sun water? Place a bowl of water in the sun at dawn and leave until noon, you may want to add a crystal of piece of jewellery of your own. Use the water as an energiser in baths or drinks, or to wash your face with or use it in your neti pot. Its hydration with a hint of magic!
