Udana Vayu

The last form of our subtle energy, the hardest one to explain in Western terms, is your expressive breath. It is a feeling centred in your head, face and neck. A calm but gentle buzz maybe...I call it Mind Yoga and the postures or Asana are lovely and relaxing. Often with your head down. Child, bridge, down dog, cat, cow, dolphin - maybe, forward bends.

A lot of the breathing exercises involve your voice and throat. We will practice Ocean Breath, chanting OM and bee breathing this month. An Eastern approach to meditation.

In Western terminology the asana (positions) and pranayama (breathing techniques) improve blood flow to your brain, in Eastern Philosophy they change your mind and help you slow down your busy thoughts and begin to understand what you need to be happy and fulfilled.

To listen to the wisdom of your heart.

We are all the same, we all need the same things in life . To be connected to our body, mind & spirit (heart). Supportive relationships. To feel loved. To feel connected to nature. To live in the moment.

Put that in one simple Sanskrit word - YOGA . On your mat and in your every day life.

Namaste Julie.          

Almost forgot the favourite meditation on our last class of the month.

Abhyanga - yoga massage of the face & neck with one of my essential oil blends.
