Be InSpired

Stories and Insights from the world of Yoga
Written by: | Posted on: | Category:

Dear Friends,

The theme I would like to embark on this month is "Peace".
How can we endeavor to feel more peace within ourselves, and radiate this back out into our communities?

We will explore releasing tension and holding patterns from the tissues of the body through long holding yin poses and soft somatic movements.
While we move and breathe, we will welcome our awareness to rest on sensations in the body, thoughts and emotions that arise (and "disturb"), and outer distractions that keep us from being connected to the present moment.

These sessions will take place online and in-person (18:30 - 19:45)
To join online, register HERE
To join in-person, please email me.

Our Themes for the next 5 weeks:

6th June - Healthy boundaries from the inside out.

  • Respecting your boundaries and taking care of yourself through soft, deep holdings and movements.
  • What kind of coping methods do you have in place that you notice are not serving you anymore?
  • How can we develop inner tools to meet the unprecedented demands of our current challenges?

13th June - Feeling into our bodies with kindness and gentle reflection, for inner peace.

  • We will drop into the feeling tone of the body through yielding and radiating
  • Developing a relationship to our psoas muscles

20th June - Opening up to a healthy connection between the pelvic bowl and spine, to enhance an internal sense of balance, ease and peace.

  • Calm grounding poses close to the earth to establish core stability and strength
  • Discovering a sense of balance through the body and breath, not through the eyes.
  • Exploring the power of our feet! Exercises to activate and align the feet

27th June - Grounding down to radiate peace outwards

  • Let's explore standing poses through a "yin mind" - soft yet strong
  • To stabilize authentic compassion, we need to have a stable base, with an abundance of vitality stored in our central core.
  • This practice will help the energy in the body to flow, and rejuvinate the natural resources in the abdomen where our behaviour can arise from our true being rather than from compulsive reactivity.

4th July - Resting in well being

  • Embarking on a meditation practice wherever you are and however you are
  • A soft, slow, deep practice to support coming to peace within yourself and sharing this naturally with others.

Seva project

In Yoga, SEVA (Say-va) is a Sanskrit word for service - how can we serve others and give back to society. Through my yoga practice and teaching, I aim to give back to my childhood community in a small and meaningful way. Since I grew up in South Africa, this is where my heart lies in an attempt to empower young children in the Lidgetton community where it is often challenging to have hope and see the light. Our small Angel Ruth’s Soup Kitchen is a space where the children can go for a warm meal, as well as to a space where they know they are safe and cared for, can play freely and learn.

I offer a percentage of my teaching earnings back into this community, knowing that is is well used and goes directly to the source. To support the growing needs in the Lidgetton community, we set-up Lucky Beans e.V. in Germany in 2015. Through our charity status we are able to offer the possibility of EU citizens receiving a tax reclamation from any donation you may wish to make.
