Esther's thoughts and "Back to Basics"



Hello you,
 


Summer is in full swing here in Europe and the sun makes everything easier, lighter. But what about those situations that aren’t easy or light? When we experience emotions we don’t want to deal with, are “unyogic” so to say? What do we do then?
Yoga teaches us that there is no separation, just oneness. This means that we shouldn’t ignore any feelings, emotions, but rather we should build a relationship with them, provide the space for them, allow them to be there and listen to them...
It can help to see these emotions as parts of our childhood consciousness that haven’t been seen and heard. All they need now is to be there and to hang out for as long as they need to hang out. You just need to be the guesthouse for these separate parts so that they can eventually merge back into wholeness.
This is the practice of yoga off the mat! And when the sun is shining, you can use that lightness to help you sit lovingly with the darker parts of you.


Love,


Esther Ekhart



Coming back to the basics in yoga...


This month we encourage you to explore the subtleties within the more 'basic' yoga poses..... How is your foundation and alignment in the pose? How is your breath? Where is your focus and mind in the pose?
