The gift of stress free kids

Palvinder, Yoga Teacher at Inside Out Dru Yoga

Today’s young people face immense pressures to achieve, to keep up and fit in within an overwhelming world of adults, as well as dealing with their own emotional and physical changing world. Children in England are apparently “among the unhappiest in world” the BBC reported in 2015, blaming low self confidence, low body image and more…

How do you feel right now?

Feel good yoga

Over the last couple of blogs we have been exploring the yogic philosophy of koshas, or layers o f being. We started our tour in the physical layer, then moved into the energy layer and now we journey into our emotional or feeling layer, the manomaya kosha.

A wander through the koshas – the physical layer

In my last blog I talked about the practice of physical yoga. I mentioned that according to yoga philosophy we have different layers of our being, of which the physical layer is just one. I thought it might be interesting to explore these a little bit further and see how these layers affect us and more…

What is the point of yoga poses?

Balance

Recently I read this fantastic explanation of yoga postures or asana, in Deepak Chopra’s book “The seven spiritual laws of yoga” : “The word asana means “seat” or “position”.

You’re as young as your spine.

There’s an old adage about aging, something on the lines of  “You’re as young as your spine and as healthy as your stomach”. Well I can’t think of any better tool for looking after your back and tummy (and many other things besides !) than yoga. So, today, I am writing about some practical postures more…

A good spring clean

Really enjoyed Saturday’s Spring Clean workshop, it’s been a while since I’ve run a Saturday afternoon session and judging by the response I got, 24 people attended, you’ve missed them as much as I have!

Balance – use it or lose it!

“Use it or lose it” is a great saying and never more true than when we think about our ability to balance. Watch children playing, they are constantly challenging their balance reflex and considering the amount of risks they take kids actually fall (and injure themselves badly) very little.
