EkhartYoga news
Hello everyone,

Last weekend I taught a workshop in Germany which focused on how you can use yoga on the mat to work on relaxing your mind off the mat. We used the asanas to explore this. We observed our stress response the moment a pose became challenging, and then moved the mind in the opposite direction towards relaxation through breathing deeply and slowly, or through relaxing the facial muscles.

We can apply the same technique when a situation in our daily life proves to be challenging. For example, slowing down your breathing moves your focus away from the stress response and towards more relaxed thinking.

October’s new program “Stretch your comfort zone” is ideal for you to practice this concept yourself. Remember yoga works, not only because poses are relaxing, but because they are stressful.

Enjoy the practice, dear yogis…



What's new on EkhartYoga


New October Yoga Program - Stretch your comfort zone!

Strength and stamina are often words we associate with the physical body but it’s also important to recognise and challenge our mental and emotional boundaries in a safe and mindful way. For those of you who are looking to develop and challenge your strength and stamina both on and off the mat, we are launching a new program on October 5th which will help you do just that!

This new program will offer you challenging classes which may push you out of your comfort zone. Choose from 2 different levels to find the right class for you. We invite you to remain calm during such classes (or poses) to help you to ‘retrain’ your brain to work from a centred, grounded place.
