Kirtan Album Release & Free Bhakti Yoga Practice :)



Hello *|FNAME|*,

How are you?
  It's been a while since I posted something- so it feels very nice to get back into the groove a little today :)

  I am so happy to announce the release of my new yoga music album: Kirtan :) 


   I have had the pleasure of chanting mantras as part of my yoga practice for over 20 years and the songs I am sharing are very much in my heart. 

  There is lots of beautiful Mantra singing happening every day in my life and the power and the importance of Bhakti yoga (the yoga of devotion/ the heart) is entirely present for me right now. 

 To hear the whole album head to www.yogawithsacha.com  (and click Yoga Music).

For Free Yoga Friday this week I would like to share the first song of the album at the Yoga with Sacha YouTube Channel:

  Mantra's are certainly not something everybody enjoys, they can be tricky, they can show us where some of our judgements and resistance lies and they can help us release some of our 'stuff' ...which lets face it is not always fun. However the upside is that the tool of reciting a mantra or singing devotional music is something that we can find in every culture across history right up to the present day because it can also make us feel sooo good!

   Today's invitation for practice is to take 10 mins out of your busy day to listen to some Yoga Music. The lyrics are listed in the video so for sure you can try to sing along (although easier mantras for that are coming soon..).

  You can also try making a nice cup of herbal tea or glass of water and sit mindfully to just listen- to put down the emails and the to-do list and engage in a short musical meditation with me.

  OR You can even roll out the yoga mat and do a gentle self-led practice for yourself using this music as a backdrop.

  I hope you find a way to practice a little Bhakti yoga today and that you enjoy this offering- it very much comes from my heart. 


Namaste!

3 Tibetan Tools to Increase your happiness today...

Tibetan Buddhism is an ancient tradition that has spanned the centuries helping its practitioners to overcome suffering, increase compassion and find true, lasting happiness within.
  The Dalai Lama (world-renowned leader of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddism), has won hearts around the globe for his warmth, down- to- earth wisdom and gentle social and political activism. Today I would love to share a few techniques he mentions in his book- The Art of Happiness (co-written with psychologist Howard Cutler), as well as to share with you a form of yoga that is alleged to have originated in Tibet over 2500 years ago.

1. Re-train your brain for happiness...
“A disciplined mind leads to happiness, and an undisciplined mind leads to suffering.”
― Dalai Lama XIV, The Art of Happiness In Buddism, it is common to reflect upon the causes of the good and bad circumstances in one's life and thus to take full responsibility for ones own thoughts and actions.

The Revolutionary Practice of Letting Go

Letting go is a theme that comes up time and time again, both in yoga classes and

in life.

Developing the ability to let go of things can make a huge difference to the quality of our lives and its

benefits are (at least) three-fold:

1.Change is the only constant so no matter how much we hope that certain things won’t change-

eventually they will! So practising the ability to let go allows us to gracefully adapt to necessary change.

2. Most of us acquire habits, thought patterns, and behaviours that do not really serve us. Learning to let

go of these traits can dramatically reduce our internal sense of suffering.

3. Even good things can become a burden when we have too much of them in our lives. For example,

our possessions can be a wonderful blessing, but if we have too many of them our homes become

cluttered and disorganised and at a certain point the downsides outweigh the benefits.

Learning to let go…

Inviting More Lightness!

Hello lovely people,

   It has been a while since I last published anything so I am very happy to be back in the game this Free Yoga Friday! Today I am happy to share a short crow pose sequence shot on the beach with the help of wonderful friend- Tim.




  This week has got me thinking around a few questions and is bringing me many amazing insights :)

 I've been reflecting upon how I prioritise my time... and observing that when I don't prioritise my time then other people and situations do this for me!

You may wish to have a little reflection yourself!


 Where is your time going at the moment?Did you decide this consciously or did it just happen this way?! Is there anything that is a real priority for you, that you can re-dedicate yourself to?

      I've also been reflecting on what exactly does one need to take seriously in ones life? 

     What happens if one chooses to take situations a little more lightly and playfully?

Things have been unfolding much more sweetly when I&…
