Gaze into the heart of your practice: Drishti

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Advance your Yoga practice by incorporating Drishti There are nine drishti, or gazes in the Ashtanga yoga tradition. Each one corresponds to a specific point of focus. By incorporation the drishti into your yoga practice you will deepen your awareness and connection with the Divine. Drishti is a Sanskrit word that means 'gaze' and is closely connected to Dharana and Dhyana, the 6th and 7th limbs of The Eight Limbs Yoga. In Dharana, we work with cultivating a single point of concentration in preparation for meditation (Dhyana). In yoga practice, drishti or placing our gaze into a specific point helps us, physically to find balance and stability. Mentally helps us focus and steady the mind and turn our awareness inwards, towards the internal movements, while finding the external...

Grounding: get Grounded and down to Earth

When we talk about grounding we are saying that one has their feet on the ground we mean that the person is in touch with reality, aware and in the present moment, with a developed common sense and not lost in space, past regrets or anxiety about the future. Being grounded means to be relaxed, in touch with our truth, inherent wisdom and knowing. Feeling good in your own skin. On the mat grounding implies having a good foundation: having your feet relaxed, your legs strong but not tense, under-standing to rise, letting go tension and being able to integrate strength, steadiness, ease, focus and presence in the practice. A person that can feel his feet on the ground and the contact with the earth can...

Breath Awareness as a Healing Tool

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Breathing is one of the unconscious processes by which we take oxygen and vital energy into our body. Are you aware of this process fully? Do you know the importance of proper breathing? Try to concentrate on this action only – taking oxygen in and letting it out. You will feel much more than just breathing. You will feel your body and everything that is in contact with it. That is how you come to the phase of body awareness. Meditation makes it possible to recognize emotional influences on breathing and provides a strategy for relieving underlying pain. In carrying out this inner work, however, you need to resist the impulse to control your breath and change it. Acceptance is the key to working with the...

Detox Yoga: Ginger & Lemon Mondays

Doing a detox is like hitting a reset button for your body. It will help to increase your energy levels, balance your hormones, improve digestion, give your adrenals a much-needed break, help break cravings and make you feel joyous all over, not to mention beautiful glowing skin and release of any overweight. Giving your body a reset once a week can create a real shift in your energy level and in your life. Just the fact that you take a step back from your regular eating habits and become conscious for one day of what you are putting inside you, makes you start eating more consciously once again. The action of cleansing and purifying the body helps to release stagnation, making room for energy to flow and...

Search for wholeness www.anapnoeyoga.com

The Search for Wholeness

What blocks you from feeling a sense of wholeness each and every day of your life? Contemplate for a moment the idea of ‘being whole’: close your eyes and envision this radiating energy inside you. Where is it located? What does it feel like?   Wholeness signifies completion, harmony, contentment and Integrity. It is rare to experience this energy, as we are usually consumed by wanting, needing and achieving Carl Jung says that wholeness is a state in which consciousness and the unconscious work together in harmony. The Self, archetype of wholeness and the regulating center of the psyche is a transpersonal power that transcends the ego. As an empirical concept, the self-designated, the whole range of psychic phenomena in man. It expresses the unity of the personality as a whole. We are...
