Dance Towards Self Realisation

By |November 23rd, 2013|Categories: Blog|Tags: , , , , , |0 Comments

I recently took part in a 10 day silent meditation – I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to be true to themselves. One of the many things that I gained from this experience was my ability to think more clearly about certain aspects of my life. Over the period of a month or so after leaving, I started to realise that a lot of unravelling took place over these 10 days. It was as though so much was rising with the settling of my thoughts, and because I was meditating for most of the day, I didn’t […]

Inside Poses – Cat and Cow Pose

Cat Pose (Marjaryasana) & Cow Pose (Bitilasana)
Cat and Cow poses help to improve the flexibility and mobility of the spine and they also work the abdominal muscles. It also gently strengthens the wrists and shoulders, and massages the digestive organs. The Cat-Cow sequence is a good to start a practice with because together these postures flow like magic easing you into connecting with breath and movement, and helping you to be present with the sensations that come from moving between the two.

Try closing your eyes whilst moving between the two and allow yourself to experience the subtle sensations, and […]
