This quote from the poem “If” by Rudyard Kipling describes Tadasana perfectly with great feeling: “IF you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you.”
So, anchor down through your heels, centre yourselves, release tension in the neck and shoulders and deepen your breathing.
“It’s not what you think you are, you are what you think” If you think positively and believe you can do a posture then you can.
For twenty years I have made an annual visit to Aura Soma, a magical centre tucked away in the small Lincolnshire village of Tetford. In fact, Aura Soma is the village. Here they manufacture healing potions, growing herbs for their curative properties as well as flower and plant essences and oils. While ingredients include crystal energies, Bach homeopathic remedies and prayers, the use of colour is the main theme. Aura Soma’s bottled solutions have two colours, with the top half of the solution suspended in oil and the bottom in spring water. There are 105 different colour combinations and it is by your choice that the treatments can proceed. I asked, ‘Does it work?’ and was told, ‘If you believe it does, it does’. I now realise what a profound statement this is. Whatever we really believe in becomes manifest for us. It is by our belief that it works.
Does your yoga practice bring you into a quiet state of mind? If it does, then it is a most precious gift. And because this state of mind is contagious then why not choose to be with others who value it too. There is a great strength in practising with another.
We have some great venues next year, please see the attached list of residentials for 2020.
Those who are joining us on the Hawkwood weekend if you have not been to Hawkwood you are in for a wonderful surprise and uplifting experience. It’s great for me as I know the food is all organic and that you are well cared for. Even the water is from their own spring and tastes so good. They have such high standards I know that you will be well looked after and I don’t have to worry. Please enrol with them directly.
Breathe well, with love
