Dear Friends,

With this fluctuating weather it’s good to remember the postures that warm and invigorate you and the ones that cool and quieten you down.

You may feel a resistance to the ones you need!

For example, when feeling sleepy or lethargic you may feel like sitting forward bends, not back arching, and standings – which is what you really need.

Engage the Bandas, especially before back arching.

Remember the deep breathing. It’s a great moderator, I mean it cools you when you are hot and warms you when you are cold.

Your practice is very precious; it’s a time when you slow down, focus on our body, and pay complete attention in the Now. The mind falls back into its natural state of stillness, into a state of yoga, and the fluctuations of the mind calm down. It is then that we can have the luxury of true relaxation; Savasana – corpse pose.

Which is what we all crave, isn’t it?

When we have the experience of being with like-minded persons for 2 full days, something happens, and we remember how we felt as children – free and playful.

You see it’s not about your body, it’s about your mind. The body is a wonderful tool. Whatever condition it’s in!

Yoga is for everybody.

In the love of Yoga,


Come and join us at Hawkwood and experience it.
