Autumn reverence for the earth
With everyone trick or treating and the pumpkin spice lattes in the coffee shops we're seeing the commercial end of Halloween - so why not tune in to something a bit deeper this month with the Ode to the Earth?
Our newest teacher here on the Studio is Rika Lukac who pioneered Dru Dance - a graceful fusion of choreographed yoga and dance focusing on flow and strength to bring harmony and alignment through movement.
Enjoy this month's reverence for nature through this exceptional Dru Dance.
Try a 30 day challenge!
Movement is fantastic mood enhancer - simply by walking or doing yoga you can feel happier, more energised and less stressed, but for some reason its really easy not to feel inspired to move!
So, why not try a 30 day challenge?
Here are our tip tips to a successful 30 days:
- Choose your classes
Spend an hour or so adding some great classes to 'your favourites' by clicking on the little '+' icon on every video page. Choose a variety of subjects you know will interest you and also those areas you need to work on. Try the 'themes' area of the home page for some great ideas to get you started. Remember to check the duration of the classes if you know you'll be short on time.
- Plan and schedule
Unless you're exceptionally self motivated a plan is the only way you're going to get to the end of your 30 day challenge still doing your yoga practice! At the end of each week set yourself a yoga schedule for the next few days and remember to tell your nearest and dearest you're not available at those times!
You may find you have to fit it in between or before everything else... just remember its worth it! You'll feel fitter, more energised, calmer and more focused.
- Create your space
Create a focused yoga space - get out the candles, yoga mat, blanket and of course - a 'do not disturb' sign for the door! If you can, set aside this space for the duration of your challenge. If you can't keep your things set out, keep them tidy and easily accessible. The theory being that if your mat is unrolled when you get home from work... you can simply stand on the mat and begin!
