Information overload? Dissociation with yourself and the present moment? Disconnection with your body? Struggling to find a place of peace and contentment within yourself?
These are common problems faced by people living in today's modern society. Our brains are bombarded with more information than ever before from external sources such as the media, television, mobile phones, books etc. In order to find peace, contentment and stillness within ourselves, it's necessary to declutter our mind from the external sensory inputs, to clear space and reconnect with ourselves. Yoga can provide this relief for the MIND.
Through the physical yoga poses (asanas) we can connect to our BODY. In this age of information overload and sedimentary living, we are constantly living in our mind and becoming more disconnected with our body. This extends to how we sit, stand, walk and breathe. How often during the day do you pay attention to your body? Many people only pay attention to the body when it's crying out for attention through pain, injury and tension. Yoga creates bodily awareness. For most of my life I lived in my body like it was a shell/casing for my mind. Since discovering yoga I have been introduced to my body as a source of great joy, pleasure and wonderment. The body is an incredible organism full of wisdom and intelligence. Yoga can help you unlock the power of your body.
My practice is focused on yoga as a meditative movement practice with a clear focus on breathwork, linking movement to breath, and strengthening the mind-body connection.
