yoga videos, mp3 downloads & yoga guides
I have recorded some mp3 audio downloads, to enable you to practice some of the breathing techniques, relaxations and visualisations I do in my classes and workshops, in the comfort of your own home.
I will also be adding some videos and printable guides soon - watch this space! If you would like to know when more are added please subscribe to my newsletter below, and you'll be the first to know.
Finally, a good excuse to simply lie down and do nothing! Although, it would be misleading to say that the body scan practice is simply about relaxation. Rather, the aim is to be aware of the different regions of your body, and allow yourself to experience how each part feels, without trying to change anything or judging. Just being with what is there. The body scan is a way to get in touch with your body, and the mind-body connection. To help you let go of feelings of needing to get stuff done, to move from 'doing mode' to simply being, by training your attention.
You begin the practice by lying on the floor, or a mat, or your bed. In essence you start by focusing your attention at the top of your head and then move down the body to the toes, or vice versa. It’s good to start with a guided practice to get a sense of how to move your attention up or down the body - so here is a free audio download I've recorded for you, you can listen here or download it. Enjoy!
Even if you've only got five minutes to spare, you've still got time to relax and breathe.
I've recorded this special 'relaxation break' mp3 to guide you to a more calm and grounded state of mind anytime of day. Giving yourself the 'permission' to take five minutes out of your busy day to revive and refresh. Click below and you can listen here or download it for free. Suit optional!
Awareness of the breath in the body is a lovely way to settle and balance the mind, and become present in the moment. You can build this practice slowly (say 2 or 3 minutes), gradually increasing the duration over time. Some days will feel easier than others, but keep with it and you will reap the benefits for life.
