Adapting is our nature

Adapting is our nature

Mindfulness | Wednesday 24th March 2021

If yoga taught me anything it's that balance is key. If you take your body for instance: it always adapts to get back to a balance state. It adapts its temperature when climate changes, it adapt its vision when the light varies, it adapts its muscles when it's put through an effort... Adapting is surviving. Some of these changes take place without us consciously making it happen. Some others require focus and first and foremost accepting the idea of change. Adaptation isn't only happening at a physical level. Our mind, ideas, mental models adapt too. I've always had some pride in thinking of myself as a consistent and reliable person. However...

Looking after your mental wellbeing on lockdown

Looking after your mental wellbeing on lockdown

With everything that’s going on at the moment, I’m finding myself with a lot more free time. Many of the things I used to do to distract myself are no longer options, and I’m spending a lot more time with my own thoughts. This can be really difficult sometimes, and I’m sure I’m not alone in feeling this. Needless to say, the sudden change in circumstances has been pretty hard for many of us.

Yamas & Niyamas - the personal values

“A value is a value when you value it” - Sudhir Rishi. You can’t force a value. What I mean by this is that if something fundamentally matters to you, then it’s gonna shine through your actions and thoughts. If you value some...

Misconceptions about yoga

I'm an extrovert. I love communicating and sharing, especially about topics I'm passionate about. Since I started practicing yoga, I have to admit that I have tended to recommend this practice to... pretty much everybody! Because I'm convinced that eve...
