BREATHE – BEND – BLOSSOM withYOGA
Be the change that you wish to see in the world.
In the beginning, middle and the end there is always breath the most important thing in life is to INHALE and EXHALE out it is our life-force.
Through the practice of yoga asanas, we balance, strengthen and challenge the body, mind and spirit: restoring our being for a better day.
As a flower bud slowly blossoms, like the complete metamorphosis of a butterfly which has four stages egg, larva, pupa and adult or prepare – perform – peak – podium we experience the same in yoga, walk through the door, sit on the mat to breathe & bend, learn the magic of yoga.
BREATHE – PRANAYAMA in the beginning, middle and the end there is breath, we take this as a natural occurrence , children between 6-12 take about 18-30 breathes, teens and adults about 12-18 this is a gauge for normal activity, relaxation would be lower and high physical activity very high, most of us take this for granted. Slowing breathe down according to Indian sages adds years to your life if we could slow it down. Stress, anger, fear, panic, uncertainty are associated with faster breathing, peace, harmony, serenity, confidence and a positive outlook are associated with slow, deep and relaxed breathing.
Perfect posture, cleanliness, breathing in and out through the nose as we do in yoga the nose hairs filters the breathe and heats the air before it hits the lungs which in turn gives life giving oxygen to the blood, helping the muscles to loosen for yoga practice.
Inhaling and exhaling…slowly , deeply…through the nose…we are now ready to practice a pranayama of choice.
When the breath wanders the mind is also unsteady. But when the breath is calmed the mind will be still and the yogi achieves long life. Therefore, one should learn to control the breath.
BEND – ASANASThrough the practice of yoga asanas, we balance body, mind and spirit; realigning our energy and clearing the obstacles that stand in our way. Yoga is thought of hippies, skinny and people who get into pretzel positions, but in fact it is a great detoxifier as your practice becomes more regular you start to become aware of the foods you consume and are they good for your practice as you want to be high in energy not feeling sluggish. Sitting in a traditional posture can feel like a lifetime but is strengthens body, mind and spirit.
Yoga addresses a number of wide range issues like blood flow, assists the digestive tract, help troubled joints and even help lower blood pressure. Talking about left and right most favour one side of the body and able to stretch better on their preferred side practicing yoga makes you mentally and physically aware of your body limitations and as we get older balance affects you as you lose strength and the ability to react-yoga has that ability give you confidence as your body is fit and strong.
Some days we feel low, sluggish, unmotivated other days we feel like a super hero with strength to do amazing things that energy source has many names in different cultures
Japanese “KI”, Chinese “Chi’ and Indian “Prana” this energy source is constantly circulated through the body in series of channels or nadis (the Sanskrit word for tube or pipe). There is another energy source called CHAKRAS;
A yoga session begins with breathing exercises then is followed by a chant of AUM/OM, either a single chant of aum or more it begins at the heart, then to the throat, then moves to the third eye and the final stage is silence to absorb the true meaning of the mantra.
It is now time to highlight your intention for the session and bend-stretch in sequence to the music through a range of postures from vinyasa, standing, balancing, inversion, back strengthening to the peak of the mountain with a back bend then it’s time to twist, work that core, stretch those hamstrings, stretch the groin and finish with a shoulder stand and finish with fish then relaxation| savasana.
With a final omor more only thing left to is whisper to the universe these words;
Third eye(Kind thoughts)
Heart(Peace & love)
Heart (Namaste– Let your divine meet my divine)
