Yoga at Alex Beach Pose

Make the time to find peace!

Posted by & filed under Blog.

In the silence of the morning, just before the sun rises is a time when your thoughts have not yet started to zoom around your brain.

This is the perfect time for meditation and light yoga, so you can start each day fresh with a clear mind and a limber body.

I like to finish each day with the sunset to remind myself to bring closure to events, thoughts and decisions of the day.

I am lucky to see the sunset while my evening yoga class is on and I feel this creates a significant impact on the body and mind connection.

The sunset re enforces the need to let go of the stuff each day brings even though some altercations or actions though the day have made us uncomfortable or angry or fearful.

As humans we are organic and our bodies will absorb peoples words and actions everyday. If you let this build up within you, it creates a stressful environment mentally and physically. We must learn to let go of all events daily, this is why it feels so good to  unwind the body through yoga so the mind follows and both become relaxed and calm.

We are reminded that our wellbeing is of upmost importance and nothing is more vital than health and happiness.

Love yourself and set yourself free through yoga.

Namaste !



Two secrets to enjoying your yoga class more…..

Posted by & filed under Blog.

The most important thing to do within a yoga class is to focus on breathing, and to feel it moving through you like a fresh breeze, the same feeling you get when opening a window on a summers day.

This will automatically start to relax the body, so you feel space start to appear where tightness and tension once was.

This will guide the mind into the space of the body and out of the head.

When you start to move the body with the breath, everything that seemed so important during that day will gradually slip away and you will experience a slice of freedom, that moment where there are no demands on you , and your body moves effortlessly accompanied by the breath like a graceful bird flying through the air.


The next important thing to do or rather not do within a yoga class is expect a particular outcome to each asana. if you want a certain outcome the body will automatically tense up and push to where the brain tells you it wants you to go. Eg: I want my head on my knees in a seated forward fold.

So instead of commanding the body to go to the end of the asana , image yourself floating within the asana with the visual power of the breath taking you with it.

This removes all stress and once the body feels safe and calm, it relaxes the muscles and you may be surprised just how far you get through the asana before the body puts the brakes on to hold you back .


We talk about acting without the ego, one step towards this is doing yoga using these two secrets mentioned above. Because if this is how you move through your yoga class, then  soon it will reflect in your everyday actions in your life.
