A Yoga Teacher, Kate and I discuss the benefits of yoga, showing us self acceptance, and whether that can help with acceptance of others.
We also explore her thoughts about relationships - including:
Polyamory is the practice of, or desire for, intimate relationships with more than one partner, with the knowledge of all partners. It has been described as "consensual, ethical, and responsible non-monogamy".
Yoga for Self Acceptance is about helping you to access and accept yourself through yoga.
I know what it feels like to not be in a happy place with yourself. Letting go of the chatter that goes on in our minds can be such a relief. (I’m sure I’m not the only one who can be self-critical at times – and think unkindly about myself in a way I wouldn’t dream of doing in relation to others).
I truly believe that yoga can bring us back to our true selves – our potential (in Buddhism called our Buddha nature) which is way more expansive than we can ever imagine. Bringing our awareness down from our head (to stop the over thinking) to our heart (where we feel).
Abiding at our heart allows us to access a true sense of peace and empowers us to be our real selves.
The intentions I bring to my teaching are:
I want to provide a beautiful space where you can access a level of peace and calm through being in your body on the mat. I want you to walk away from the class more at peace with yourself, comfortable in your own skin – ‘like a big relaxed sigh’…
I went to my first yoga class in London in 1983. I have been practicing daily for the last 10 years and in 2016 completed my training with Laxmi Yoga 200-Hour Teacher Training with Sally Parkes.
My learning is life-long and I continue to study with teachers that inspire me. I’m ever grateful to my practice of Modern Buddhism with the New Kadampa Tradition. Sitting on my cushion is as important to me as being on the mat – and I do my best to bring my meditation and yoga practices to all of my life.
I am a registered teacher with Yoga Alliance Professionals. This accreditation demonstrates excellent standards as set by Yoga Alliance Professionals.
