Outdoor Yoga – TBC 2017
The glass in the office filters out essential spectral waves of light that need to hit your retina to balance your brain chemistry, so it’s really good for you to get out every day and get exposed to nature.
So it’s good for you we’ve got the extreme antidote to modern day stress factors like the above!
The antidote is not your Mom telling you to go outside and play like she might have done when you were a kid (although she would have been right in her instincts of what you need; parents are such generally intuitive creatures, aren’t they?). It’s Outdoor Yoga! Yoga outside is so good for you, it helps to correct the effects of work-related stress.
On top of that, on a subtle yoga dynamics level, we of course often talk about yoga in the context of ‘union’ and ‘wholeness’ but this is often restricted to our perception of connection between body, mind, and spirit. Ultimately, total union also involves our environment as well as people around us — which is what we are trying to cultivate here at Creative Yoga.
Achieving this level of connection is so much easier when you are naturally more in harmony with your surroundings. As much as I love teaching in a studio, energetically you will obviously have much more resonance with our beloved Earth and Sky when you do Yoga outdoors.
Your whole being can relax to a whole other level in nature. As much as we get used to our urban lifestyles, ultimately a natural setting IS your natural habitat, and some deeper, more soulful part of you recognises this through all your senses so it allows you to relax a notch deeper as there is less information for your body-mind to integrate.
So there you go! See you there!
