Amity Yoga Saturdays give you the chance to spend a little more time in experiencing the benefits of a longer yoga practice once a month.

Wendy says, “I’ve noticed that the opportunity to have a shared lunch is not only fun, but it gives people the chance to talk to each other in a space away from family, commitments and stress. Real friendships have been nurtured by attending Amity Yoga Saturdays, extending beyond the class with practical and emotional support in daily life. Everyone works together to make the day a success, keeping it in their diaries for their monthly fix. And they love the soup!”

Hatha Yoga Rainhill

Meeting in the warm and welcoming St James Methodist Church Hall, Amity Yoga brings together people from across the North West in a mixed ability class, with ages ranging from 18 to over 60. The day gives the students the opportunity to practice different elements of yoga, with time for extended practice and including the opportunity for a deeper meditation and relaxation than is possible in a weekly hour-long class.

The session allows for not only increased physical benefits, such as strength and flexibility, but also space for mental relaxation and for friendship. Discover the benefit of stilling the mind, to become more focused, with improved concentration and the release of tension from the mind and body. Yoga will help you to distress and increase in confidence. We are there together, to share our love of yoga at whatever stage we have reached.

An important part of Amity Yoga Saturdays (10 am till 2 pm) is the time set aside for lunch, getting to know each other over homemade soup in an atmosphere of togetherness. We lay the tables with candles and inspirational quotes, herbal or fruit teas are available throughout the day. A great way to meet new friends and nurture friendships.

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”

Meditate on this – The Journey by Mary Oliver

One day you finally knew

what you had to do, and began,

though the voices around you

kept shouting

their bad advice –

though the whole house

began to tremble

and you felt the old tug

at your ankles

“Mend my life!”

each voice cried.

But you didn’t stop.

You knew what you had to do.

though the wind pried

with its stiff fingers

at the very foundations,

though their melancholy

was terrible.

It was already late

enough, and a wild night,

and the road full of fallen branches and stones.

But little by little,

as you left their voices behind,

the stars began to burn

through the sheets in the clouds,

and there was a new voice

which slowly

recognized your own,

that kept you company

as you strode deeper and deeper into the world,

determined to do

the only thing you could do –

determined to save

the only life you could save.

Dynamic Mudra Mantra

During this mudra (yoga hand gesture) the fingers move accompanied with mantra Sa, Ta, Na, Ma. As you exhale place one of your fingertips on the tip of each thumb. While inhaling extend the fingers again. Co-ordinate this with the mantra syllables;

Speaking ‘Saa’ press together the thumb and index finger;

Speaking ‘Taa’ use middle finger and thumb;

Speaking ‘Naa’ use ring finger and thumb;

Speaking ‘Maa’ use little finger and thumb.

Use both hands and practice this dynamic mudra mantra for 5 to 30 minutes.

This dynamic mudra is used to promote brain activity and to relax the nervous system. It promotes concentration and creates a feel of inner calmness.

Aim to breathe slowly and focus on an even inhale and exhale. Breathing slowly will help your body and mind to relax.

Give it try. Notice how you feel.

Freedom within – Meditation

Meditate on these lyrics, Freedom by Jane Winther (musician, singer, songwriter).

 Read each word slowly, with your full attention on each word.  Acknowledge your thoughts and feelings.  Take time to meditate.

Freedom within

Deep within.

Freedom is finding myself,

anywhere in this world,

Moment of silence, moment of joy.

Feeling free in this moment,

Feeling Home,

freedom within,

deep within,

Freedom within

Deep within.

Jane Winther

Freedom with Yoga – Your Yoga Practice

Feel Freedom with Yoga

Feel Freedom with Yoga

You’ve heard of the saying ‘Just do it’?  Apply this saying to yoga. Practice yoga today. Wherever you maybe.  You don’t have to go to a yoga class to practice yoga. Develop your own yoga practice.  Feel the freedom of tailoring a yoga practice just for you and how you feel right now.

Enjoy the positive benefits yoga provides.  Feel the freedom yoga gives.  It’s your practice.  What will your yoga practice be? yoga asana? start with one asana, what will that be?  Maybe yoga breathing (pranayama)?  karma yoga? meditate? or just take a deep breath and RELAX.

Feel free to choose. It’s your yoga. Practice yoga now!

Meditate – Flexibility & Balancing Our Mind

Meditate on this …… to maintain balance in our minds we need the mind to be flexible.

Flexibility is the key element of achieving balance of our mind.  

 Indian Buddhist Master Atisha wrote:

Whenever your mind is too high,

it is necessary to crush your pride

By remembering the instructions of the teacher.

Whenever your mind is too low,

It needs to have inspiration.

Whenever you face objects of desire or hatred,

See them as illusions and apparitions.

Whenever you hear unattractive things,

See them as echoes.

Whenever hurt comes to your body.

Accept it as the result of your karma.

Atisha

Meditate – Listen to your soul bird

The Soul Bird by Michal Snunit is a refreshing story to remind us to listen to our soul bird.

The special bird that has the keys to our innermost feelings and emotions. The soul bird knows where we hide our happiness and joy. It also knows where we keep our anger, sorrows and jealousy too.

We live our lives and we don’t seem to listen to our soul bird enough.

The Soul Bird story book helps to remind us to take sometime to hear what our soul bird is telling us.

Are you ready to listen to your soul bird?
