There are times when your mind is too busy to cope with anything else. The reasons for a mind too busy can be diverse: work commitments, heartbreak, just everyday life. What are potential ways out of such a situation? Sometimes there is just no way just right now. Sometimes it just takes some time to get your head around it. Sometimes it helps to „murder the mind“ with something that is so distracting from work commitments, heartbreak, just everyday life that you cannot think about the things that keep your mind busy. It is not easy to find such a distraction. Really looking for such a distraction might really be counterproductive and just keeps your mind even busier. It might be difficult to be patient at such times but at some point the necessary distraction is just around the corner waiting for you. So it needs a kind of perseverance to get through such a period and it is OK not to be as active or creative or efficient as you would usually be. At the end there is light, there is a way to „murder the mind“.
And then: then there will be something even more active, more creative, more efficient!
Same here… a long time has passed since last post as the mind was too busy to cope with anything else. But it clears now, it’s getting creative and active now. So watch out! The Soulfuel Yoga Team is currently working on something BIG. Revelation is currently planned for September 2017! Until then: some „murder to the mind“ practice!
You’ll learn, as you get older, that rules are made to be broken. Be bold enough to live life on your terms, and never, ever apologize for it. Go against the grain, refuse to conform, take the road less traveled instead of the well-beaten path. Laugh in the face of adversity, and leap before you look. Dance as though everybody is watching. March to the beat of your own drummer. And stubbornly refuse to fit in. – Mandy Hale
Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga and asanas are held for longer periods of time. It directs the stimulation deeper than the superficial or muscular tissue (which is called the Yang tissue). Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, tendons, fascia, bones, and even the joints of the body that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of asana practice. The aim is to increase circulation in the joints and increasing flexibility.
Try out the shown 45 minutes sequence, let go and feel deep into your body. Enjoy!
Another short flow filmed during my stay in Ubud, Bali, at the Payogan Villas & Resorts. No particular theme, just flowing at the start of sunset that day. Enjoy and of course go ahead and try by yourself!
Spending month April in Bali doing a 300 h Teacher Training. The flow is a little wobbly as after two weeks the body is a little sore. Plus it is very hot in the afternoon sun, so what you actually cannot see are the floods of water running down my body. Anyway – hope you enjoy the flow 🙂
