Week 2 of Cultivating Calm is here at last!
I am using a Blog post to save these onto my website so you know where to find them. On the right side of this page you will see Categories, they will be listed under Yoga. Every time I upload something new I will email you the link to the latest Blog post.
I did myself a mischief last week and spent a good few days paying for it…. All good now after some extensive hip strengthening work. a good deal of TRE (more about that later) and a good dollop of Yin Yoga – yay!
For this session we focus on bringing in the light through visualisation and opening the heart and lungs with our breath and flowing movement. I encourage you to KEEP SMILING through the practice as it has an amazingly uplifting effect that you can feel in you body and spirit – and it’s just you in the room so it doesn’t matter if you look daft!
Energy is the vital, vibrating, moving force of nature that directly influences the quality of our health, happiness and aging process. In India vital life-force energy is called prana, and in Chinese it’s called qi (pronounced chee). Qi is associated with the breath because like the breath, it animates our body and brings it to life. When our vital qi is flowing, we feel healthy. When it is blocked we feel pain. When qi becomes weak, we feel tired. When there is no qi left, the body dies. So you can see that cultivating this rhythmic flow of breath and energy and movement is so important for our well being!
We mix Yoga with Qigong tapping (to strengthen and activate chi) and flowing movements in a continuous stream of body-based awareness that alternates between stillness and movement, yin and yang.
