Mindfulness | Monday 1st June 2020

Personally, I love to read. There are few things I enjoy more than some quality time alone with a good book. It’s a great way to expose yourself to new ideas, learn about something that interests you, or just get lost in a compelling story. And, given that most of us are self-isolating at the moment and might have more free time than usual, now is a great time to get stuck into some new titles. In the words of Frederick Douglas, “Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.” So, with that in mind, I’d like to recommend some titles that have resonated with me personally. First up is something that’ll hopefully prove very appealing to t...

Home practice: create your yoga space in 5 steps

Yamas & Niyamas - the personal values

Yamas & Niyamas - the personal values

“A value is a value when you value it” - Sudhir Rishi.

You can’t force a value. What I mean by this is that if something fundamentally matters to you, then it’s gonna shine through your actions and thoughts. If you value something, if you understand the importance of that thing then it becomes one of your values. Reciprocally, something you don’t understand and don’t appreciate the importance of can’t be a value, no matter what you may say. Which doesn’t mean that our values a...

What yoga taught me

"What impact does yoga have in your daily life ? Do you feel more awake ? In better shape ? Lighter ? I practiced a bit, I quite liked it, maybe I should practice again at home."A friend of mine asked me this question on Twitter lately....
