What they said about our last day retreat:
‘Thank you for a fabulous day of retreat – making self knowledge and different forms of yoga available to us in an urban setting is so valuable for women who have busy lives and can’t always take a week off for retreat.’
‘Would recommend to anyone. Great variety of exercise, and information, good food and great company.’
We all want that feeling of being in balance. That’s because being off balance feels uncomfortable. And like Goldilocks, we know how it feels when we experience that sweet spot where everything is “just right”, and we are in what is commonly known as the ‘flow state’. According to positive psychologist Mihály Csíkszentmihályi, the flow state is defined as an “optimal state of consciousness where we feel our best and perform our best.” So, how can we utilise the tools & techniques of yoga to access a state of balance in both mind & body on a reliable basis?
Learning about the 5 Pranas or ways energy moves within the body, we can discover ways we may habitually prefer or actively encourage the subtle life force to move within us, and explore ways to support our energy to flow more freely. In other words, we can find out how to appropriately challenge our habitual preferences! And with this awareness we create change.
Creating balance – whether that is a work/ life balance, a family/me balance, or simply a balanced outlook on life, requires intention & practice. We all have preferences, likes and dislikes, which, over time, gradually create imbalances – some of them more healthy than others. Ever tried encouraging your kids to eat more veggies and less ice cream? Ever needed to rebalance your diet towards wholesomeness. Or are you seaking a better work/ life balance for yourself?
Using the yogic tools of yoga postures and breathing practices) can have a powerful effect on opening up the subtle energetic pathways within & have an energising or relaxing effect, depending on which practices we choose. Overall, learning about the prana vayus gives us greater choice and vitality.
