Retreat at Felden Lodge, August 2017
We had a lovely weekend at Felden Lodge, sharing yoga, conversation, food, nature and just being. Our time together included Yin and Yang yoga, some meditation, a session on yogic anatomy (know your chakras from your nadis!) and a savasana (relaxation) workshop with Ellen Lee. A big thanks to Ellen and to everyone who came along.
“Stimulating, relaxing, thought-provoking” – one of this year’s participants.
Relief for Tight Hamstrings
We’ll be doing a lot of forward bending this block…if you have tight hamstrings and are interested in anatomy, this article may be for you. Especially useful for explaining why bending knees on forward bends keeps us safe.
Earthing and Grounding?
Here’s an interesting article on the benefits of being physically in contact with the Earth. It feels intuitively true for me, and there’s no question that my personal experience is one of better emotional health at least when I have more contact with the outdoors, especially barefoot.
It’s quite hard to keep contact with the Earth in the Winter as we tend to be indoors so much of the time, and probably wouldn’t want to take a walk barefoot; but getting outside and doing some gardening which includes touching plants and trees which are rooted in to the ground might help.
