Quick relaxation

Young Woman Meditating on the FloorStress can quickly build up. If you’ve only got a few moments to yourself to spare find a quiet space to sit in – even the ‘smallest room’ is better than no-where – and take your awareness around the body relaxing each part by simply increasing a sense of relaxation there. Don’t even move a muscle.  Just deepen feelings of relaxation. Then take your awareness inwards and deepen feelings of relaxation there too, so you’re feeling relaxed both inwardly and outwardly. Feel stress melting away.

When you’ve practised this a few times you’ll be able to relax quickly anywhere, at any time, physically and mentally preventing stress building up and affecting your health.

YOGA HELPS CONTROL DIABETES

The Times of India is the latest source to mention how yoga can help control diabetes. Type 2 diabetes can be caused by stress, diet and lack of fitness.  When you are stressed, your body secrets glucagon which increases glucose levels in the blood. Yoga poses, breathing practices and deep relaxation and meditation can help relax body and mind, increase fitness and improve the digestive system.

De-stress & Sleep Well Workshop

Thanks to everyone who came through the autumnal valley mists on Saturday to the workshop in Llandogo. In a relaxed atmosphere we discussed the tribulations of getting a good night’s sleep, enjoyed stretches and relaxed deeply in two yoga nidra – soft lavender eye-pillows enhancing the experience! Home-made Honey biscuits in the break might have helped too….

Relaxed? Of course I am!

Most people think that relaxing is simply slumping in front of the tv with a cup of tea or socialising on social media and it’ll reduce stress. True relaxation is an experience far beyond this. Absolute relaxation requires us to stay aware and observe what happens as a Standard journalist found out when he experienced yoga nidra/yoga sleep. Read the article to find out how…http://www.standard.co.uk/lifestyle/health/catching-some-oms-introducing-sleep-yoga-8193704.html?fb_action_ids=4291191951072&fb_action_types=og.recommends&fb_source=aggregation&fb_aggregation_id=288381481237582  Like the sound of it? Don’t put up with sleepless nights, head for the Wye Valley next Saturday (20th October 2012) to experience yoga nidra yourself!

Workshop-Backs and Posture

Whether experienced or first-timers, everyone enjoyed the sunny morning in the lovely Llandogo Hall. We practised yoga techniques for upright sitting, strong standing and developing strategies for easing acute back pain. We then practised postures to develop back strength such as bridges and warriors. And finished with a thoroughly relaxing Yoga Nidra. The chocolate brownies for refreshments were described as “delicious” and the practices to help back health as “really helpful and useful” and “my back feels really eased out and I feel better all over!” Thanks to everyone for coming and making it such an enjoyable session – that we all learned from!
