Join Lydia from Roar Spirit Yoga this Sunday 25th June at 11am for a FREE one hour winter warmer vinyasa flow yoga class, on the spectacular Docklands New Quay Promenade as part of the Docklands Sunday Market celebrations.
Finding stillness in my life and in my mind is something that I have struggled with a lot lately as I continue to transition from the corporate world into my new combo career of yoga teacher/PR freelancer.
I think about winter solstice - the shortest day of our year - as being our year's hump day. Finally from this day onwards, our days start to get longer and our nights shorter as we move closer towards the shining possibilities of the warmer months. But, sitting back and thinking about a day as getting longer, or a night shorter, serves to remind us that our time here is limited.
Last week I led a yoga class on the theme of “acceptance patience”. This is a topic I have been interested in for some time after attending a meditation workshop centered around the book of internationally renowned Buddhism teacher Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
“He who has faith in God does not despair,” says I.K.S Iyengar, the father of Iyengar Yoga. It is this one simple sentence that best describes the fifth and final niyama (or life observance) by which a yogi lives their life; Ishvara Pranidhana.
I love cute furry bunnies as much as the next person. But this Easter I decided the Easter Bunny was once again getting all the attention and so I chose to theme my vinyasa flow class this morning on the chicken.
