Yoga at Alex Beach Pose

Posted by & filed under Blog.


I want to tell you a brief story, about your body and yoga.  I am always amazed how yoga can heal the body and that shift of physical  response eliminates  such tension mentally.

After  meeting a gentleman in his 70s who had worked all his life, in a busy industry, where it was crucial to always be one step ahead of plans prompted me to write his story.

On his first visit to me for his private yoga session he seems willing to learn but it was hard for him to relax, even as we spoke he shifted his weight from one foot to the other and he couldn’t wait to get out of the place when he finished.

He had some tension in his spine, mostly postural and learnt habits physically, his brain was wired to be switched on at all times even though he is retired now.

I have been seeing this gentleman fortnightly, so roughly about 5 times now.

He goes home and  practices what we do each fortnight, then returns, the  physical changes are  amazing he is a lot more relaxed and he has a lot more movement when swimming and with life in general.

I am proud of his dedication to his practice and his attitude, which is this …there is no quick fix to a well body and mind .

I agree with him full heartedly, we must nurture ourselves daily, yoga is the key to learning how to do this.

Set your standards to what your  personally is like. Make your practice suit you, some days you might feel 10mins is all you can manage, then do only 10 minutes.

Each day you will feel different so adjust your practice to suit this. Choose a Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Australia ,to help you.

Start to feel free , live to control what you can and lose the  focus on what you can’t control.

Ultimately control your wellbeing and happiness will come.
