We have slowly moved up from your feet and into your mind.
Most of us need more calm and peace.
Need more space for relaxation.
We keep our minds busy with books, technology, planning, the past.
Our minds want entertainment or should I say distraction?
Our bodies want exercise, fresh air, nourishing food.
This section of classes is especially helpful for calming your mind.
The asana focus more on the neck & shoulders.
Many of them are cooling but also energising as the head down postures encourage blood flow to your brain.
Is it time to change your mind?
Is a very subtle element yet we all understand what it is.
There is space within our cells, around us, everywhere.
We are not as solid as we think. Space moves through everything and dissolves barriers.
Finding or feeling the space within you is the Yin of life.
It hums, vibrates, tingles and soothes.
It rejuvanates and replenishes your energy.
I haven't given you many affirmations but here is a lovely one.
"I feel the space within me and around me.
With every breath I gather more and share it with the world."
I will recommend a crystal and an affirmation for you if you are being guided through the course.
Crystals and gems form an important part of Ayurvedic Healing and are still used by many people in other societies for healing purposes.
If you would like more information on a crystal or stone - I have a couple of detailed Ayurvedic Healing Books and of course The Book of Stones, I mentioned earlier in the course.
Create more space in the physical world by clearing out your house and living more simply and you will find it more easily within you.

Start to notice how the asana effect how you feel.
Which are your favourites?
Can you practice a few of them throughout your day or in bed?
Why are the classes in this section good for speech?
Why would singing help a sore neck or thyroid problem?
Have you tried chanting or Bhakti Yoga ?
Can you see the connections, the patterns ?
Ask me questions ❤

Chanting is a quick & easy way to calm your nervous system by extending the exhale. Feel the vibration flow through you and know that it is much more than this simple Western explanation. Each Chakra has it's own chant or Seed Mantra. Explore them all in this sound section.
Silence & Sound
Ready to Learn More
Three months staying at my family home.
It messed me up again.
It is easier not to visit.
Australia seems a life time away.
The skies here have been so beautiful.
Sky watching has become my favourite meditation.
Not far from the sea Marton-in-Cleveland. Land of the cliffs, so much sky.
The moorlands, the window where I sit.
Misty greys, silver linings, sudden golden light.
Cloudy skies are full of character, depth and beauty.
Life is like that too.
I love this place, family and friends I rarely see and yet I love Australia.
Cloudy skies. I leave tomorrow.
I feel grief. I accept it.
I take good care of my grief.
I take good care of my suffering.
Like the skies my heart expands outwards.
Joy is here too.
Dark clouds, storms, sudden down pours, misty skies, golden light.
Thicht Nacht Hans teachings have helped me to take good care of my suffering.
If I take good care of my emotions, good and bad.
Then who is this "I"
My true self
Heart & Spirit takes good care of me.
I am ready to start the next uphill, downhill beautiful journey.
