Hello everyone,

Why is relaxation so important, what are the benefits? Do we even remember what it feels like? Is the state we call ‘relaxation’ these days really relaxation or is it more a moment of temporarily being less stressed…?

Maybe it’s helpful to recognise the signs that you are really relaxed - perhaps experiencing a stillness and ease of being. Thoughts are there but they are not so much in the foreground; from this perspective it’s much easier to observe them and you don't care so much about them.

Another thing that happens when you are really relaxed is that you enter into a state of heightened awareness. As a result, you are more sensitive to stimuli in your environment like sounds, smells, etc. When you sink into this expanded state of awareness, the boundaries between you and everything else begin to collapse and all is well in your world. You start to see the benevolence of things...

What’s new on Ekhart Yoga?

We have so much to tell you about we don’t know where to start! So let’s take a deep breath to begin with …. :)



New November program - Deep Release

Our new Deep Release program begins on the 9th November. Release tension within the muscles, and fascia/connective tissues of the body and give your mind a much needed break. Be patient, trust and breathe...Let this program guide you towards deep surrender.

For three weeks you will practice three classes a week - Hatha (Yang postures) yoga, Yin yoga which will stretch and release tension within the muscles, and a Yoga Nidra class to enable you to integrate the opening of your body with a conscious surrendering of your mind.

Join the program!

My Practice - a brand new page for EkhartYoga members
We recently announced ‘My Practice’ - a new home page with videos suggested just for you, links to your Favourites, Watched videos and a brand new feature, a 'Watch Later' button. This is for when you want to plan your practice in advance or if you come across a video when browsing that you'd like to practice later on. 
For those who are already using My Practice, we hope you’re enjoying it. For those who've yet to discover it, please read our blog
**Wait, there's more - hot off the press!**
As I write, we've just unveiled another new feature which will tell you when you’ve received a reply to one of your messages, comments or questions - be it from a teacher, the EkhartYoga team or even another EkhartYoga member. You’ll notice a little bell icon at the top right of the page; if it has an orange circle containing a number, this means you have unread replies waiting for you! Hover over the bell for more detail.

All classes and programs are available to EkhartYoga members. Join us today!
