Thank you for this Fall Ayurveda Challenge, which didn’t feel like a “challenge” but rather more of a pleasure to look forward to each day. Today’s practice with the bandhas was soothing for my nervous system, which was quite jangled after peeking at the news this morning (gotta cut down on that)! Wishing you and everyone at Yoga Antime a blessed autumn season 🍂🍁🌾
Thank you dear Melina for sharing . I love all of your classes. I've been teaching for 24 years and studying privately with an Iyengar teacher for more than 10 years, and I'm always amazed and grateful for learning new things to help me with my daily practice. I've missed being able to teach because of the virus. Sadly, two of the yoga studios where I've been teaching for 10 years have closed permanently due to this virus. You are an amazing teacher. I'm so grateful for all that you bring to Yoga Anytime . I`ll be looking forward to more new videos . May you and your family be well, happy and healthy ~ Best wishes,
What beautiful comments, thank you both!!!!. Jenny, I love that you see this as a "pleasure" more than a challenge and that you notice how much yoga can help balance out the stress of the news! Heidi, I love that my classes expand your yoga tool box and keep you inspired in your daily practice. Thank you for such beautiful comments, I am so grateful for the opportunity to share these videos with you.
Many thanks for this wonderful autumn preparation-lovely sessions and helpful hints. I wanted to mention the BASIC ayurvedic tenet of early to bed. I live in southern Spain, where early to bed is just plain impossible for most folk- Im an English teacher and work in a private academy 3.30 - 10 pm so don´t get home till 10.30. I studied ayurvedic massage with Dr. Peetambar Mishra from Benares for many years in his annual trip to Spain and this was something we discussed often. I´d like to share his Spanish compromise -
every 5 minutes before midnight is worth 10 minutes after midnight - and you can "catch up" with lost sleep by having a really early night at the weekend!
I find the idea of soup for breakfast thrillingly strange but haven´t got around to it yet - - have other yogis managed the bedtime? - and how did they fare with soup!
