The benefits of Yoga go far beyond the beautiful shapes we make with our bodies. Last week, on a number of occasions the power of Yoga revealed itself to me as a teacher and to my students. On a daily basis I read, practice and feel a shift in conscious living. When this shows up in my students I feel truly honoured that I can share this gift of Yoga. to see a manifestation of awareness build through sustained practice. Through rolling out your mat, through yoga, meditation and mindfulness practices that draw you into conscious living.
Stress is a learned behaviour, fear on the other hand isn’t. Hurt and pain all of these emotions are present in our lives but how we react can help us grow stronger. Fear is more often based on what might happen, a future unknown. Pain is based on what has happened in our past. Hurt from those who have caused us pain. But it’s the learning from all the good and bad that makes you unstoppable or as Miley Cyrus put it, it’s the climb!

Simple Energy Balancing Technique
Take a moment. Sit down. Ground your energy. Focus on your heart centre and begin to take smooth easy deep breaths. Think of something that brings you joy, or of someone or some place that your love. Keep breathing and focusing on your heart centre. Notice as your energy begins to change. By tuning in and becoming aware of the subtle you can literally feel energy start to fill your body. Anxiety lessens. We come home to ourselves.
