I am surrounded by water.
Marvellous Mediterranean Sea outside and my 85% of water inside.
Water element purifies, adapts, stirs, sticks, pulls down and pushes through continuously.
Water is the vessel of emotions according to Ayurveda. All the pleasures and charm of life spicing up our every day is the result of the flow within us. So are the darkness, depression and dullness when the water gets blurry and heavy in our system.
Therefore, the first step out in creating a change in our system starts with stirring up the water as there is no escape from it.
Now it is time to work with the more subtle effects of yoga on our state of mind.
Our sacral chakra Svadhisthana managing the water element rules over our social connectedness, sexual expression, fantasy world and creativity. This little Yoga Program I am sharing with you will help to overcome your writer's block, lack of joy, social discomfort or limitations to your imagination. It is an amazing support to removing any blockages from the pelvic floor both on a physical and energetic levels.
You are welcome to join me in this watery paradise at Phaselis Bay in Antalya/Turkey for a personalised 3-days retreat until the end of September. Our theme depends on your needs; Vibrance Wellness Retreat; Advanced Yoga and Meditation Retreat or The Feminine Way. You pick and enjoy sea, sun, fun and the bliss of a holistic approach to yoga!
Just drop me a line to get organised.
Do you wonder where all this creativity of the many projects during these intense times is coming from? Try the program! 😉
Dealing with asthma started my yoga therapy journey.
I had no idea how rich, diverse and efficient the ways of yoga could be to improve the self-healing capacity of my body. There is this basic notion; `yoga is good, it helps you relax`. But there is so much more than that to explore. Especially if you are at a stage of feeling like punching the instructor who has no idea what you are going through and keeps asking to breathe stronger and deeper and whatever.
When a person is dealing with asthma or COPD it is a different ballgame. Not only are the lungs very sensitive but also the psychology around breathing restrictions plays an important role. Many tips and tricks that are recommended on paper may not be suitable for the person; especially at the beginning.
The urge to breath is so vital; it takes a while until the mind is trained not to panic and make constrictions get worse; urging to use an inhaler instead of trusting that a breathing exercise will work.
Because of that mental connection around sympathetic `panic` reaction there are many common techniques that I explored working wonders in preventing anxiety attacks.
So, I put together a little yoga program of some `gold` that will help you prevent an asthma attack along with breathing exercises against anxiety.
I have to say that getting lasting results in complementary treatment of asthma with yoga therapy can be a long journey of purification, strengthening and endurance touching upon many areas of life.
One thing I can ensure from very personal experience; it works, it feels great to take charge of your body and the effort pays off in many other areas of your life simultaneously.
