Regain Your Vitality with Yin Yoga

We need Yin Yoga for more reasons than we even realise, which helps to explain the gentle yoga’s rise to fame in recent years. Our busy schedules, active lives and high-sensory environments (particularly for city-dwellers) can quickly throw us off balance, in ways we may not be fully aware of. When we think of Yin […]

Boost Your Practice With Essential Oils

{And which ones to try} As a practice, yoga invites us to explore our internal landscapes while providing respite from the constant activity of the outside world.

Retreat Yourself

A yoga retreat, whether it’s jet-setting across the world or exploring […]

Finding Balance Between Yin and Yang

Yin and Yang describe the two qualities or energies present in everything; our bodies, day and night, seasons, our food, all elements of the world around us. Yin qualities can be thought of as more internal, passive, cooling and downward while Yang is more external, dynamic, warming and upward. Yin and Yang are relative to […]

Yoga And Your Dosha

Ayurveda is an ancient healing science, originating in India over 5000 years ago. The sanskrit word literally translates to “the wisdom of life” or “the knowledge of longevity”. Ayurveda views health as much more than the absence of disease, but as living in harmony with the body, mind and spirit. It is the balanced state […]

Yin Yoga For Chakra Balancing

When we practice Yin Yoga we’re not only opening up the physical body – we’re also tapping into the energetic body. Our prana, or life force energy, flows through our body along energy channels – also known as nadis or meridians.  These meridians travel through energy centres known as chakras. There are 7 chakras: Root […]
