Wendy’s Yoga Teaching
“Always different routine and covers all postures in different ways – it keeps classes interesting
(some teachers do the same routine week in week out which can get a bit boring)
Classes accompanied by lovely music which helps you tune into the exercises and breathing rhythms. Enjoy listening to and learning about mantras. Extended guided meditation sessions are really enjoyable and soothing”

De stress with this Breathing Technique

When your feeling stressed have you ever noticed that your breath feels short and irregular?When relaxed the opposite is felt. Observe how you breath when relaxed. Your exhalations extend longer than the length of your inhalations.

To promote relaxation we can focus on gently extending our exhalation by one or two seconds. Each exhalation can be twice the length of the inhalation. Enjoy the feeling of relaxation.

Meditate on this…….

The quieter you become the more you can hear.

Baba Ram Dass, B.1931

Yoga Meditation - Releasing Emotions, Stilling the Mind

Yoga Meditation – Releasing Emotions, Stilling the Mind

Yoga helps us to release emotions. They may be positive or negative.

The photograph above features a pregnant woman who clearly shows a release of emotion during her yoga practice. As she sits in wide leg pose (Upavista Konasana) she is supported by her yoga partner.  As she meditates in pray pose (anjali mudra) she sheds a tear releasing emotion.

Harmony Meditation – Amity Yoga recommends taking a few moments to meditate on……….

“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”  Mahatma Gandhi (1869 – 1948)

Take a moment out of your day to meditate on these words.  Listen to your heart and soul.  Take a deep breath in and a slow extended exhalation.  Repeat reading the words written by Mahatma Gandhi.  Slowly and thoughtfully.  Continue to allow your breath to settle and let your breath be smooth.

Let your focus be fully on the words your read.

Meditate and focus on what you hear from deep inside your heart and soul.

Reflect on your actions recently, are they in harmony with your thoughts? Listen again to your answer.  Listen to your internal voice.

If you are not feeling in harmony with your thoughts and actions then meditate on why you feel this way.

Meditate on ways you can make changes to achieve happiness and harmony in your life.

  • Supta Virasana – Reclining Hero Pose
  • Supta Baddha Konasana or Reclining Bound Angle Pose
  • Corpse Pose – Savasana
  • Viparita Karani – Legs up the wall

When you settle into your chosen restorative yoga pose try the following breathing technique.

Restorative Yoga Breathing Technique - Breathe Easy

Restorative Yoga Breathing Technique – Breathe Easy

Breathe easy. Observe the breath and notice how some breaths may be deeper than others.  When relaxed notice the alternating rhythm of your inhalations and exhalations.

Notice the breath becoming smooth and soft. Observe how the breath feels when relaxed. Feel the undisturbed flow of the breath, quiet, effortless. Listen to the flow of your breath, the rhythm of your breath.

Consciously relaxing your breath. Your breath deepens,  it gently flows as you inhale and as you breath out.  Your breath feels easy, serene, peaceful and relaxed.

Breathing easy promotes a feeling of relaxation and well-being.
