What strange times we find ourselves in. Times that call us all to stop, more than ever, to breathe, to become still. To notice the mind "stuff", notice the feelings and emotions, the way we react to what we're facing. To find balance. In all areas of your life.

Take this surreal, incredible opportunity to tune inwards, to journey inside of yourself, to elevate consciousness. And in the meantime, let our world recover and take a breath as well...

If you feel stressed or overwhelmed by the happenings of the past months, here's my invitation to you: 

Breathe deeply.

Take a deep belly breath IN.
And a deep long breath OUT.
Repeat that 3 times. Do it now.

Then let your breath fall to a more natural rhythm again. A... See full profile

1. A warm welcome to Week #4: Hello, everyone, welcome back for this practice. You need one block and a cushion in a blanket to sit on later. You can always sit on your block to be like so without running. We obviously want to find a way to avoid getting injured so that we can grow and expand and get better at what we love doing. But how do we actually do you? So the repetitive nature running sadly also lends it the possibility of us developing imbalances in our body that can really quickly turn into injury. So looking at the statistics, anywhere between 65% and 80% of all running worldwide get injured, strode a year. And that's a lot of runners. So rather than over developing some muscles and ignoring others the way of prevention, one of the things that we can do straight away it start using our whole body and look at moving tours or maintaining that natural equilibrium within us. But I'll talk a little bit more about that in this week training, so let's dive a little deeper today into the practice of finding balance. What does it actually mean to have great balance if you're anything like me. That's always something going on in your life. There's ups and downs that's busy times that slow time stress, but also good times that make us forget the bath and the staff stuff for a little while. So there's always change. In fact, the month before change is the only constant in our life. So true, so wise. And once you start practicing regularly, you'll notice out to every day can look completely different than the last. Even changes from minute to minute a times. And it's clear in instant reflection is about what is happening within our life in our minds, whether we've been triggered by something or whether we've overdone it somehow, whether we just had a breakthrough, bringing us back into the flow of things. So one of the beautiful things that a yoga practice them becomes is that it actually gives us a safe environment to prepare us for life. So what does it mean with that? So I think it's this always gonna be fluctuations. As I said, that's always gonna be change. Everything changes so quickly, so we can really do. Then, in our practice is to get better at navigating that change. So how do we react to certain situations? How do you react when you pull out of the post? Is it frustrating? Can you laugh about it? One off. My favorite teachers from London and I mentioned this. People once said that the way you react on the yoga mat is how you react in life. Says the teacher. Seeing you, I've got this beautiful insight into your life that makes this student relationship a very intimate Once there's a special bond in connection, usually, which makes it so beautiful and rewarding us well. But because this right here online experience, you will have to dive into this for yourself, become aware off these little moments on the map in your life and start questioning your habitual patterns and choices and reactions as well. So that navigating change becomes an intention for the practice off, creating a deeper awareness on the map towards moving towards balance. Staying open, invulnerable city, Haitian Reflecting on our feelings, our thoughts now are reactions. So what we look at today, when we called, made the ability to balance better physically, it's really looking at how do we manage change constantly so that we can continue to draw into the midline, find our center and that's stable base around which everything else is, then free to move without pushing us off center. And when we do fall and that's inevitable along the lines of our life, so be it, because we know we always have the choice to get up and try again. So for this week's intention, invited to go deeper into that inner inquiry noticed the more subtle layers within your mind as you navigate your way through the practice, enjoy. 2. Your Class Project: next up your class project. So the class project for each class is the falling share your biggest inside and take away from this class And to help you with that, you have some questions for you to consider. What did you find? Difficult. What was easy? What did you think you could manage easily, but then turned out rather tricky. Did you notice any areas in your body that may need a little more TLC going forward on which area within your body appreciated the practice the most? Another really important one is compared to before the session. How did you feel afterwards? And you're able to walk and move a little more greater lighter as a result. No. Anything that comes up for you and shared in the class project area know that any difference and sensation that you feel is a wonderful and very welcome signal towards a deeper awareness and finding that awareness within our body as well as ar minus a huge step . Two more mindful movement and also living a stronger, more centered life. One. Were you more easily let go off distractions and the dreaded busy monkey mind. So let's go and get started 3. How to use your breath to deepen your practice: way. So welcome, Teoh. Week four. Off our yoga for begin. Of course. Today we will need a block or a big book. If you don't have a block as well as and stop or a belt, we'll do as well. So to begin with, let's start sitting down. So come Teoh, a cross legged position. If you hips a happy here, feel free to to stay. If not, pop yourself up onto a block to elevate your hips, and we mentioned that in the sessions before. So find a few more movements here, maybe a little sway from side to side. Maybe look from side to side movement through the neck. Roll your shoulders up back and relax them down. And then really open your heart here to take a deep full breath into the rib cage, filling up and with the excel, gently close your eyes. So to begin with we want to ground ourselves here. We want to find strength from our deep in a core. I want to be able to draw on the strength that's coming from the ground up, and that place is safety that yeah, that strong foundation then will help us to be able to open up to all kinds of possibilities and opportunities within our bodies. So sit Brie. I noticed that your mind may not be completely still a calm here. Be okay with that. But also noticed that in the stillness of your body you sitting still here right now, you can become aware off how the mind moves, how the mind changes. So for another few moments, yeah, see, we can step into that seat off an observer off your thoughts again. Notice your thoughts how they come, how they dio. And it's always without judgment just looking at them from all directions and then simply let them go. Wealth you aware of them? Cellular awareness down into the point off contact with the floor. Fill your sitting bones on the ground or on the block. Filet of feet. Failure legs in contact to the ground. I was always no need to judge, analyze Just become aware of the touch off that feeling off that sensation right now and then slowly with that next deep, full breath center gente open your eyes with the excel, open your mouth and released completely and slowly rock off your block place. He blocked by one side and then roll onto your back from him. 4. A gentle lying Warm Up: slimey, hug your knees into your chest. Here, give a little squeeze will rock from side to side. And if you suckle with your knees, no, they need choppiness. And then suddenly take your feet down to the floor, bring your feet about hip width, distance away from each other and sort of way noticed the position of your pelvis. Notice your lower back is your lower back arching. So Sopel was tilting forward. Maybe your low back is flat on the floor, so when we've got the knee spend, it's a little easier over the pelvis to being a neutral position or maybe even tilting back a little and simply just find out. Natural positional awareness here are we going to start doing is find a few movements here and again. A little bit of that mobility for the lower back for the sacrum, the movement of the joins Theus. I joins gently warming that up and again, always tuning into your breath. Notice how you can cultivate that length within the breath, that awareness at all times. So from here, take this drop, draw your right knee into your chest and loop the strap around. If it mega The option is always to keep the left even or ticks in the leg out to the floor . Now, seeing how I want you wherever you Legace, whether it's straight or whether it spent at this point, I want you to find a little engagement pressing into the strap, finding the length within your arms and notice how moms are straight. So don't have them up here, so there's a little bit more effort involved with a link. Nyom. Stretch them out and let that weight off your arms and your shoulders support you in holding onto the appear. So if he in how lengthen and it's the excel, maybe straighten the leg a little bit more may be drawn towards a little bit more. Just find a few moments you're settling in. Inhale, lengthen tiny, subtle movements excel, maybe drawing the toes a little closer towards you and for moment also noticed the positioning here off that right hip. So the more we want to draw that right leg towards us, if they again. If there's a little too much effort Doble, that right hip has a tendency to kind of fly up, so the right side hip has a tendency to get a collapse a little. So maybe take a thumb here into the hip crease and push it away from you. So lengthen your right out of him towards that left foot. Towards the front off Huma, both sides of the waist are equally long. Here's the hips again in line a get length and take a big breath reaching a hip forward your right foot up on with the Excel. Maybe again settling into that position here right now because we know warmed up yet we don't want to push too far anyway, so just be be gentle on. Be happy wherever you are right now. I know this is sometimes hard for us, not just for runners. There can be mindful and still allow it to happen, Mother and pushing and forcing yourself. Right. So from here, take this trap. Both ends off the strap into your right hand and then route the left hip down to the floor . So for moment, just find that awareness of your left leg's. You wanna press that left aside, bone down into the mouth, draw the left toes towards you. So you flex, um, the foot here and then gently open that right, like, out to the side and is always gotta wool in the way here, um, see again, bring that right. Like our as far as he can. However, without the left lake in the left hip lifting up off the floor. So find the strengths. Route that down into the man, especially in a soy. So press that down into the mountains policy a full moment and then as well find a little strength AEA and lift the right outer hip up. So you're not collapsing into into the post here. You're not hanging in the post, even though you're going to find a little hammock here with your strap. The final awareness there. Well, im in slowly. Bring your right leg back. I go.

Said notice. This is our Todd usna. Imagine you're standing down on the floor and you want to press the back off your thighs own into the mouth. So you want to find that awareness off the thigh bones reaching buying. It's not so much about locking the knees here, but it's to find that energy of the thigh bones pressing back and especially the inner thigh. It's easy to find a little bit off that rotation, and again the big toe mounts are touching already. But finding a little bit of that rotation of your inner thighs drawing back to really find that awareness off strength within the legs as you're lying down, I mean, is Lily. From here. Take your left knee into your chest, so see how you can keep that awareness in your right leg in your left knee into your chest . Or, if you lose it, just get back into on Um, se him. So find a moment. Keep that right leg routine down. Notice if that lifts up here. So maybe come back. In fact, come, come back quite a lot and then see how you can keep that right, like right thigh pressing down into the mouth and then slowly Keep that as you bring your left leg back against ASEAN. How you wanna lengthen the egg cell, maybe hug it in a little bit more and again just hang out here for a few moments, focusing on your right foot, staying flexed. So feel balancing here, standing up. Keep rooting a right thigh bone doc down towards the floor. Keep reaching your left hip towards the fun again. Maybe take your thumb here, pass it away from you so you're not collapsing in the left side ways. Find that length. Hold the rib cage in towards the floor. It's a spine, and then find a few moments here to just cut a little slack here on little learners of length within the hamstring. Think of big breath and full moment. See how, even within this stretch, how you can also find a little bit off that awareness of your left thigh bone pressing out and up. So rather than just drawing and towards you find that lift up in house. So it's almost like you're coming up over to move the leg a little deeper into the stretch . That's gonna help you with that left hip a small to you on a rule that left out of help out but reached the right inner thigh up and over we go.

So you want to find a little bit of that internal rotation So your inner thighs are pressing back, and what sometimes happens or what I see in some people happen is that the pelvis, as they do that shifts back. See, you don't wanna find that movement from the pelvis, but just find that internal rotation from the thighs to route the thigh bones back. So keep the lower back nice and nice and lonelier, so in, just pause here for a moment. Find that engagement, rooting down in a heels, reaching back through the inner thighs, and then engage your core and through the site body. Lift yourself up. And now how can you relax the shoulders?

So you wanna bend the knees and noticed straightaway how our body may be shifting towards the front off the feet. So how can he lean it back ever so slightly? So you're rooting down equally into the floor. So you're finding that awareness off obviously, where the balance is but also the awareness of the midline, the most able based the foundation that we want to create. Say hello to your five. Keep rolling your thighs in so you're going to keep that engagement through your thighs. Keep drawing the belly into, lengthen your upper body and then reach both arms up here. Leo, get noticed how?
