Hi Hut yogis. I am not able to take the class this Thursday. Also was wondering how much interest there is for continuing the classes on Thursdays? Last week nobody turned up so i practiced on my own. The previous weeks have only had 2 or 3 people. Please Let me know if you'd like the classes to continue at this time or at another. I really need some bods on the mats to keep it happening. Om sweet om

6 Sciatica Stretches to Prevent and Relieve Hip and Lower Back Pain
This might come in handy for many of us. Very often i get asked to recommend exercises to help with sciatica. There are a few good ones in this article.
6 Sciatica Stretches to Prevent and Relieve Hip and Lower Back Pain Lower back pain is one of the most common problems that people have. It can range from slight stiffness or soreness to a painful sting or a “shocking” feeling. Regardless of what type of back pain you are experiencing, approximately 60-80% of Americans are suffering from some sort of back pain. Whet...

8 Keys to Take Your Yoga Teaching Beyond Standardized Alignment Cues
Very good read for both: teachers and students. Both need to remember:
a) a teacher SUPPORTS student's OWN journey. Students SUPPORT teacher's own JOURNEY It's a process where BOTH ARE INVOLVED EQUALLY.
b) it is YOUR body/mind/soul, your UNIQUE experience. It can not be the same for everybody else.
c) when teachers & students come to practice together, there is no space for dogmas, but for sensitivity and openness in order to support MUTUAL GROWTH in a safe and loving environment CREATED BY BOTH.
Key Points from the Article:
1. Not Every Pose is for Every Student.
* I would add "not every practice" as yoga is not limited to physical postures only.
2. Is Your Goal Function or Aesthetics?
3. Stress is Different from Stretch.
4. Each Pose Needs a Purpose.
5. What are You Feeling?
6. Never Ignore Pain.
7. Explore Options - Avoid Dogma.
8. There are No Universal Alignment Cues.

See you today at 5pm for nurturing and supporting each other!
Much love ❤️
8 Keys to Take Your Yoga Teaching Beyond Standardized Alignment Cues Standards are nice—they make it much easier to learn how to guide students into the large number of poses taught in yoga classes, but unfortunately students are not standardized.
Rhythm of Breathing Affects Memory and Fear - Neuroscience News
As you might know, we include pranayama practice in every class and pay a lot of attention to the breathing in general. Do you wonder why?
"Modern science states that the subconscious mind and its relationship to the conscious mind are dealt with in pranayama by the establishment of an interface between the conscious and the subconscious minds in the area of the brain called the reticular activating system (RAS).
The RAS is the trigger for other parts of the brain. Man is able to affect the RAS through the breath only. No other function of the autonomic nervous system can be controlled by conscious human activity. Control of the brain through the RAS by means of conscious breathing is a method by which other functions of the body may be controlled, for example, heart rate, blood pressure, digestion, excretion and absorption. Therefore, control of the subconscious is achieved through conscious activity of prana nigraha(control of breath) and then pranayama." - Swami Niranjananda Saraswati, Yoga Magazine.
There's been a recent study about correlation between the rhythm of your breathing, memory and fears. Pretty good insights in the article:
Rhythm of Breathing Affects Memory and Fear - Neuroscience News A new study reports the rhythm of your breathing can influence neural activity that enhances memory recall and emotional judgement.
India’s oldest yogini says you’re doing yoga wrong if you’re working up a sweat
A good reminder to keep you on track 🙏
India’s oldest yogini says you’re doing yoga wrong if you’re working up a sweat She is 98 and has been practicing every day for nearly a century.
Seeing your progress and growth, witnessing you overcoming challenges in the class and then taking it into life, - is the best reward and the biggest inspiration.
Your feedback (and it's not about praise) is priceless. Knowing your struggles, your needs, your experience is an honor.
Keep sharing and keep shining!
A little feedback from dear students:
"Thank you for teaching me that meditation pose. I can finally sit for one hour without any pain or discomfort!"
"Absolutely loving this deepening of practice, deepening of self presence & awareness"
"I am doing some of the seated yoga and modified ones you taught me. Thank you. Xx feeling great after "
In the Kids Yoga class, after abdominal breathing, asked kids how did it make them feel, and one 6 years old yogi replied: " It made me feel satisfied" ❤️Priceless!
We've been practicing Tkataka Meditation (concentrated gazing) on a candle flame lately. I thought, I'd tell you about it a little.
The word trataka means "to gaze". This practice is known as one of the cleansing practices in yoga.
By fixing the gaze the restless mind too comes to a halt. It is said also that control of the blink reflex stimulates the pineal gland, which produces melatonin, a hormone that helps to modulate sleep patterns. Trāṭaka is said to enhance the ability to concentrate. It improves eyesight, increases the power of memory and brings the mind in a state of awareness, attention and focus.
If you suffer from insomnia or mental tension, 15 min of trataka before going to bed will make a big difference.
Though Tratak is simple to perform, regular practice reaps results for the well-being of your eyes and mind. Besides that, it cleanses your eyes and strengthens your eye muscles.
"There is a wonderful message to realize when you practice Trataka. You are staring and there is strain, burning etc. and suddenly without you having to do a thing, the eyes wash themselves. You need do nothing! That's the message. The "I" need do nothing. If the eyes need to be flushed and cleaned, there is something deep within that knows. See That."
- Swami Ventakesananda
