Yoga for All


Fiding your path – yoga and Bruce Springsteen.
The theme is dealing with change as youg row older and finding your way through life with grace and love. Western Stars movie trailer

See the movie Western stars if you can!

I loved watching the new Bruce Springsteen film this week. Western Stars has some very yogic sentiments: focusing on yourself/ the individual plus finding your place in your community; the challenges of loving – others and yourself; finding your life’s purpose and working through your afflictions/ doubts/ fears to live your best life. 

HathaYoga is finding a balamce or an equilibrium between opposites. this applies to our asana, practising yoga poses, and our life of the yoga mat. Enjoy this vidoe showing some of those contrasting movements and sentiments. I set it to the music of the beautiful song by Joni Mitchell – Both Sides Now. See it on my Facebook page and check out details of classes with me in Woodley and Earley.

Saucha or cleanliness is one  of the Niyamas in Patanjali’s words of wisdom on yoga. The niyamas are principles we can endeavour to live by as we find our way along our path in life. While saucha can mean using the yoga cleansing or puriying techniques to physically clean our bodies (these include using a neti pot to clean the nostrils,  practicing nauli or stomach massage or trataka – candle gazing), I also think of saucha as finding cleanliness, clarity and de-cluttering in my life off the yoga mat. I am reading a book bby Marie Kondo on how to tidy up my home. The author (without referring tyogo a – is talikng about saucha) makes a clear link between having a tidy, de-cluttered home and attaining more mental clarity. And that is what we are looking for in our yoga practice: saucha – seeing clearly who we are and how to move gracefully along our path in life.

Legs up the wall

Don’t these yogis look relaxed in this super studio with the yoga warrior on the wall? Legs up the wall poss is a wonderful restorative pose suitable for all. My yoga students are loving this as an alternative to savasana on these hot summer days! It is a real yoga pose – Viparita karani in sanscrit. Come try it out at a class with Hatha Kath soon!

Looking for that sense of freedom in your body and mind? Want to feel stronger or more supple? Healthier and whole? Then come to a yoga class with Kath!
I can help bring that sense of wellbeing into your life. By finding space and freedom in our bodies through yoga  practice, we can also find freedom and space  in our breath, our minds, our  approach to life.
