“Yoga is the journey of the Self, through the Self, to the Self”
The Bhagavad Gita
Yoga: slow & strong
Space to experience the mind-body connection through simple and gentle movements and shapes. Discover your inner strength and wisdom stored in your body. Learn to slow down and be present.
Starting yoga can be scary and triggering. You might struggle with pain and tension and yoga has been recommended, but you don’t know where to start.
Or you can’t switch off and your thoughts are racing all the time. Still, slowing down somehow feels impossible as there is so much to do…
Perhaps you tried following some Youtube videos or some busy online classes but you couldn’t connect with them. You didn’t feel heard and seen.
You might want to lose weight, or feel like you are doing some “exercise”. So slowing down and attending a yoga class might feel counterproductive.
I hear you. I had my own doubts too.
Before starting my teacher training I tried many different types of classes. Some of them I attended regularly (i.e. for years) and some I only tried for a few months. They all had different benefits –either physically or mentally, but long-term they didn’t feel sustainable.
Yet, somehow, I generally managed to avoid a slow or “restorative” class. Because I wanted to do the physical practice. I wanted to “work out”. I didn’t understand that I can have a different experience in a yoga class, which also brings on a different experience with my body.
I started to listen to my body (and mind) more and started to do yoga with my body. I stopped working against what was available in the moment.
And just this simple shift, resulted in more change than I ever imagined.
My body became stronger. My mind more present. Less was more. Slow became nourishing and the source of compassion. Respecting my body and creating a long-term, sustainable practice.
