Every step counts


Be here now


Hello you,


You probably know how easy it is to become obsessed by the end result of an effort? Itā€™s like all the steps that we have to take to get thereĀ have no realĀ worth in themselves - all that matters is the goal.Ā 


We donā€™t give those steps in between our full undivided attention. For the mind it is all about the next moment; about getting there, believing that there is always something or somewhere better then Here.Ā 


What helps is knowing that basically this is what the mind does if left to its own devices. Itā€™s the nature of the mind to constantlyĀ be seeking the next thing.Ā 


My invitation to you is to be aware of this tendency of the mind to be always on to the next thing and to consciously be more aware of the present moment andĀ all the steps in between. Slowing yourself down is one technique that helps to settle the mind. For example if you'reĀ walking to the shop - walk -Ā donā€™t already be in the shop with your mind -Ā smell the roses (or dog poo!) on the way to the shop instead.. Another thing that helps is cultivating curiosity through the senses: what does it feel, smell, taste like, what do youĀ hear etc.. Ā 


Please keep on reading to exploreĀ different ways to make the journey count!Ā 


Love,


Esther


Exploration, not destination


Letting go of attachment...


Featured blog item


"Let your concern be with the action alone, and never with the fruits of action. Do not let the results of your action be your motive, and do not be attached to inaction"



Off the mat, how often do we worry about what might come of the effort we put into a project at work, a holiday weā€™re planning, or a meal weā€™re preparing, that we never really enjoy the process itself?
On the mat, how often do we feel frustrated (or even angry)Ā because we cannot 'achieve' a particularĀ pose?
How do we let go of our attachmentĀ to the destinationĀ and instead enjoy the ride...?

7 day Chakra series


Become a member and follow our 7 day Chakra Series, journeying through the energy body from the root to the crown.Ā 
In a mix of Hatha and Vinyasa classes, Esther will teach you about the different chakras, what they mean in our lives, where they are located and what asanas you can practice to stimulate or balance them.
The 7 Chakras are the energy centers in our body around which energy flows.Ā When a roundabout is blocked traffic will build up around those major areas. It's the same in the body - when one of the chakras or energy centres are blocked, it has an effect on the physical body and also emotional, mental and spiritual aspects that are associated with it.
