In the modern world is all too easy to become worried about all kinds of things. Technology has brought us closer together; yet, at the same time, has brought new stresses. Coupled this, with the normal worries of work and family, and we get recipe for disaster. That is why is important to consider the yoga practice as space where one leaves behind all those things, and for at least one hour one should simply relax and experience the moment.
A yoga practice should be the moment of the day when a person can switch off their mind, and just be. No expectations, no questions, no worries. Simply let go of it all; it requires no effort, and no action. In the same way as turbulent waters cannot be made calm by splashing more water; one cannot ease the mind without letting go.
This will allow the mind to take a breather, and as result one becomes more centered and relaxed. Remember, a person who talks all the time cannot hear what others have to say. Likewise, a mind that is constantly worrying cannot hear what the spirit has to say. Thereby, the importance of trying to let go; even if it is for just one hour.
At first this may be difficult, but with practice it quickly becomes a habit.; thus, making every class a moment to unwind. Also, one will obtain new insights on the body and soul, because the mind will no longer focus its attention on the same old stress. This is one of the core principles of our classes at Yoga Retreats Malaga. Providing a strong foundation to all participants so that they may continue with their yoga once they get back home.
To worry is to be alive. It is just a part of life. However, this doesn’t mean there is nothing we can do about it. To take a moment and simply be; therein lies the answer. Even if it is for just an hour; the results are effective and insightful. So why not try it? The more you do it the easier it becomes.
There is really nothing wrong with trying to become better. However, when one pushes too hard, too fast, and for too long the risk of injury drastically increases. This is because many of us tend to underestimate safety when it comes to our yoga practice. All we really want is to do the pose perfectly, and so we push until we get there. This can only lead to injury, and when it happens; we have to stop the practice entirely. Thus, defeating the purpose of pushing hard in the first place, as injuries need a lot of time to heal.
A better approach would be to study and observe the body as it reacts to the poses. Properly feel and become aware of the stretch; observing each movement of the ligaments. It doesn’t matter if one isn’t able to reach very far; what matter is to become aware of the stretch itself and how it affects the body. To understand a pose is to practice it in different levels, from the easy to the difficult; while observing how it affects oneself. This will also bring improvement while maintaining a level of safety.
Another way to avoid injury is to remember that is safer to be consistent everyday than push really hard once a week. Some of us rarely have time to yoga on a daily basis, so we only practice once or twice per week. When we do it, we try our best in order to make up for the time we didn’t practice. Leading to injuries and pain in the body. Instead, if one doesn’t have much time for practice; is best to do a little everyday, than than doing a lot once or twice per week. The body responds better to this way.
The combination of awareness with a steady but safe practice will ensure the body’s wellbeing, as well as, maximize the results of each pose. Thereby, making oneself more flexible in a safe and quick amount of time. This is one of the core principles that we teach in Yoga Retreats Malaga, so that every participant has the tools to practice safely. Moreover, the love for yoga and the desire to get better can result in hurting our bodies, so is best to take small but consistent steps in order to improve while at the same time maintaining a level of safety that is comfortable for the body.
