Dharana - Concentration
“True concentration is an unbroken thread of awareness. Yoga is about how the Will, working with intelligence and the self-reflexive consciousness, can free us from the inevitably of the wavering mind and outwardly directed senses.” —BKS Iyengar in Light on Life
Moving Into Stillness
“I am always at the beginning” —The Aged Buddha, on being asked what life was like. As the holidays come to an end and winter settles in there’s a beautiful yin energy; introspective and still, that provides us with the time and space to unearth our soul’s desires, to mirror Mother Nature. She retreats back to her soil and works hard to ensure her gifts are received in abundance in Spring time.
Self Care Rituals
Why is self care always the first thing to go when life “gets in the way” when it should be our number one priority? Isn’t our body supposed to be our temple? It should be treated with the utmost respect like the expensive sports car, fed the finest fuel, kept pristine and sparkling, both inside and out. Instead, we’re skimping on sleep and meals—or worse yet, eating fast food and loading up on stimulants. We can’t live a life we love on fumes! We’re letting ourselves get so consumed with work and projects and commitments and things that don’t serve us. Even spending quality time with friends and family is considered food for the soul and we’ve probably been neglecting that as well.
