How are you?
Welcome to week 4 of The Morning Ten- your invitation to practice 31 days of yoga (including meditation and mantras)... even if that simply means practising for just 10 minutes a day :)
This week the invitation is to enjoy it! Enjoy the practices, enjoy the amazing body that enables you to live your life, and enjoy the present moment and all the experiences that can be found right here, right now.
A few questions to reflect upon are:
What do you enjoy?
What gives you pleasure?
What gives you lasting happiness?
Is there anything you can incorporate more of (or less of) in your life to increase your sense of enjoyment?
For me I'm very much enjoying stealing moments away from my little one to work, play, meditate and practice yoga! I'm also practicing really enjoying many of the common things that I can do without thinking- feeding the baby, taking a shower, walking the dogs... it is lovely to remember to squeeze all the juice out of the simple things :)
See below for this week's links and bottom of email for next mantra lovestream details...
Day 1: Bridge Pose Yoga
Day 2: Cobra Pose Yoga
Day 3: Chair Pose Yoga
Day 4: Saraswati Ma Mantra Meditation
Day 5: Yin Yoga Melt (One of my favourite short classes!)
Day 6: Yoga for Inner Freedom
Day 7: Ragupati Ragav Raja Ram Mantra
If you wish you can expand your practice by adding either of the following suggestions:
Calm abiding meditation:
You may also wish to deepen your Sadhana by doing a few mins a day of simple breathe awareness meditation: Sit upright, set a timer for between 2-5 mins, close your eyes and observe your breathing. When your mind wanders just gently bring it back to the breath.
This Practice has sooo many benefits for the mind and nervous system
Hot water with Lemon:
You can end your session with a cup of hot water with some lemon squeezed in. It is a wonderful warming way to gently rehydrate and detoxify that has been used by yogis for millennia- if you have the time then you can read a few pages of an inspiring book, or just enjoy a quiet and mindful moment :)
I hope you have a wonderful week.
