Yoga, pranayama and mediation are the most beneficial self-practices that I have personally experienced as well as witnessed in others. Whether your goal is to integrate them as a life changing practice, or as a supportive weekly regime, I am here to teach you the best way to practice for your constitution. New Clients are to book for a 3-session package. Each Yoga Asana session is 90 minutes long and will always include 15 minutes of pranayama and 15 minutes of meditation. During your first session, you will have an Ayurvedic assessment of your bodily constitution and we will discuss your goals for your practice. After our initial 3-sessions together, you can choose a session at a time or continue with packaged sessions.
Your initial meeting and Ayurvedic assessment will shape the type of yoga asana practice to best suit you to meet your goals. Your focus may be on strengthening your muscles, improving your physical balance, increasing your stamina, or building your capacity for mental stillness through long held physical poses.
Pranayama (energy extension) provides incredible amounts of health benefits when practiced on a daily basis. It greatly enhances your mental clarity and establishes a stable internal environment for us to navigate through our external one. To strengthen your immune system and increase your stamina, Kapalabhati - the shining skull breath - is recommended. It strengthens and tones your diaphragm and lets that extra belly fat subside. To help eliminate anxiety and hormonal stress, Nadi Shodhana - alternate nostril breathing, is going to be the solution for relief. There are many more practices, and, one that will be the most helpful for what you need at this moment in time.
Being physically still - pausing - allows us to fully realize all the ebbs and flows of thoughts, emotions and physical sensations that we conciously and subconciously carry around with us….all the time! Some of these thoughts, emotions, physical sensations we may look to as amazing and wish they would always stay or at least happen more often, and others we may decide are terrible and wish they would go away for ever.
Meditation is about finding stillness on a daily basis that allows all these thoughts, emotions and physical sensations to just ebb and flow without attachment. The more we can practice this stillness, the more empowered we become in seeing all situations as beneficial, without grasping on to them. We become less stressed out, more accepting of others, and most importantly, we learn to be compassionate to ourselves.
