Full Moon Thursday 15Aug19

Full moon Thursday 15Aug19 – Things Reach a Peak

  • Astrologically, the sun and moon are in opposite zodiac signs during a full moon.
  • Opposing forces (such as emotions and reason or work and home) are said to reach their peak at a full moon.
  • This is the time of culmination of the intention set at the New Moon.Although “super-charged” and a time in which opposing forces are highlighted, it’s also a time of balance because solar yang and lunar yin energies are in harmony.
  • This is considered the easiest time to direct Prana through the Shushumna Nadi
  • A Time for Shedding & Releasing – This is said to be a time to reflect on those things that no longer serve us and to lovingly release them—a time for shedding and releasing.
  • Feminine Healing Energy – “In the Tantric tradition, the full moon is personified as feminine and bestows nectar. It is a time when moon gazing or moon honouring can bring forth powerful stillness and healing.” (Amy Ree)

Wishing you a Summer of Self Discovery! – Kriya Yoga

Wishing you all a Summer of Self Discovery!

In our last Yoga Sessions this Summer Term I wished you all a wonderful Summer of Self Discovery. I invite you to do your daily Sadhana (Practice) to continue your purification process with Yoga. I also introduced you to Kriya Yoga and Spinal Breathing.

Please observe this is an Advanced Yoga Practice and should only be performed by mature Yogis, who have been practising Yoga with me for a couple of years! Your System needs to be ready for this!

KRIYA – raising of energy to a Higher Level through Spine

SHAKTI KRIYA – Movement Meditation, where we physically locate Chakras

  • Root Chakra – Mooladhara – female: top of Cervix     male: 2cm above perenium
  • Sacral Chakra – Swadhistana – lump just above tail
  • Solar Chakra – Manipura – center of the spine opposite naval
  • Heart Chakra – Anahata – between shoulder blades
  • Throat Chakra – Lump back of Neck
  • 3rd Eye Chakra – Ajna – back of the head opposite point between eye brows

Take a few moments to declare your wish to open to life – Meditation is an offering rather than a demand!

Spinal Breathing: Inhale upwards from Mooladhara moving through each Chakra with your awareness – exhale from Ajna down to Mooladhara. 5 rounds after your Sadhana.

Wishing you all a joyful Summer of Self Discovery on your Yoga Mat!

Our Inner Power of Healing

“The Power that makes the Body, heals the Body!”

Based on Dr. Lorraine Day’s Experience of healing herself from Cancer, here the following vital points I extracted from her interview below for “Self Healing” – so simple:

1 Fresh Air – outdoor air always better than indoor air

2 Sunlight – Sun does not give us cancer – the way we are eating causes skin cancer

3 Plant based Diet – preferably Vegan & natural & in its natural form – raw & organic

4 No Sugar, no Caffeine, no Alcohol, nothing artificial – anything we out in: TV, Books..

5 Peace – release all anger! Set yourself free!

6 Exercise – Yoga!

7 WATER – biggest change – loosing 10 glasses of water per day – replenish!

8 Rest – between 22.00 – 2.00am Healing Hormones active – be asleep then!

9 In tune with Nature & Natural Law – we are meant to slow down as sun sets!

10 Trust – deep connection, trusting in our own Inner Power!

11 Gratitude – having an attitude of gratitude! Instant Tonic!

12 Benevolence – wishing everyone well! Getting outside ourselves!

Here is the full interview with Dr. Lorraine Day for you!

We are designed to heal!

Om Jyoti!

Our Journey with Patanjali’s 8 Limbs of Yoga

Our Sol Yoga Classes are called “Living Yoga” Classes as we take our Yoga off the mat and into our Life!

Yoga is a Journey of Transformation and Purification and this does not just happen on the mat – it happens in our daily Life! Life is there to grow us so we are able to reach our full potential and be all we can be!

We love taking our Journey with Patanjali’s 8 Limbs of Yoga in particularly focusing on the Yamas – our relationship with Life and the Niyamas – our relationship with ourselves. All those observances are universal and as valid today as 2500 years ago and they bring us those wonderful Eureka Moments!

YAMAS:

Ahimsa – non violence – be natural!

Satya – Truth – living in alignment with Truth!

Asteya – non stealing – being authentic!

Brahmacharya – celibacy – being wise with our Energy!

Aparigraha – non grasping – let go and trust in life!

NIYAMAS

Saucha – purification – the wish to live cleaner!

Santosha – contentment – be perfectly content and yet aspire to be all we can be!

Tapasya – austerity – growing through the “Burn” of life/ the challenges!

Svadhyaya – self study/observation – seeing it first step to change!

Ishvara Pranidhana – surrender to Bigger Energy – surrendering to Life!

Looking forward to seeing you on the Yoga Mat and sharing this amazing Journey with you!

Om Jyoti

Full Moon Fri 23Nov18 – we are all Cyclical Beings

 

It’s a Full Moon today, Fri 23Nov18!

The Full Moon harnesses a very Special Power for us – it amplifies the Energy of the Moment. It also signifies a New Beginning – putting into action the steps we prepared at the First Quarter Moon last Thu, 15Nov18.

  • There is a natural cycle of life, moving through beginning, sustaining and letting go. By attuning to the rhythms of natural cycles, we are attempting to tap into the intelligence from which the cycle originates.
  • The rhythms and cycles of nature teach us how things are connected, and how to align with the natural flow.
  • So we are drawing our attention us being cyclical beings and every month going through seasonal changes whether we are male or female. Naturally this is particularly pronounced if you are female and menstruating! The day you start menstruating, is the first day of your Cycle!
  • If you are female and menopausal than the first day of your Cycle starts on the Full Moon, so today!
  • Yet I would like to encourage all of us, whether we are male or female to observe our emotional changes throughout the month. Once we discover patterns, we can stay in tune with ourselves and make the most of our “seasonal power” of the month! – You might discover that the low feeling that you have been feeling is actually perfectly normal, as you find yourself in the midst of your winter! Being authentic is the way to discover your true nature and reaching your Full Potential!
  • Winter – stirs in us the need to be more reclusive, more in our shell
  • Spring – we are coming out of our shell, becoming more sociable – just like Spring, starting to blossom and grow
  • Summer – we are in full bloom, we feel social, we feel beautiful, we feel sexy (ovulation)
  • Autumn – we are becoming more reflective, drawing back in – a fabulous time for clearing out stuff!
  • …and then we are drawing back into Winter – even 1 or 2 hours before your period is due, if you are menstruating, the characteristics of Winter can be massively amplified!

Discovery yourself through the monthly seasons and use your seasonal powers wisely & creatively!

Om Jyoti
