One of the best detoxifying poses is Mayurasana or Peacock Pose. This pose is one of the first 15 asanas ever to be written down. The first Yogis practicing asana understood its tremendous health benefits.

Here’s what Svatmarama wrote about mayurasana in the Hatha Yoga Pradipika:
“Mayurasana quickly alleviates all diseases like enlargement of the glands, dropsy (edema) and other stomach disorders. It rectifies imbalance of the humours (vata, pitta and kapha). It reduces to ashes all food taken indiscriminately, kindles the gastric fire and enables destruction of kalakuta (toxins). “– HYP 1.31

Keep Bending Forward

26 Mar

Sometimes we try so hard to keep moving forward when really, all we need to do is keep bending forward. Challenge yourself to really stay and hangout in Forward Bend sometime this week. Be passive, breathe deep and watch yourself gradually progress forward.

Oasis Yoga – week one.

20 Mar

 

 

OPENING WEEK! We have dreamed about this for so long it hardly feels real. Monday marked our first day at Oasis Yoga, Koh Lanta! We are having a blast. It’s been a whirlwind of meeting people and figuring out the island, but somehow we have managed to sneak a few projects into the mix and Farra has never been happier! There is so much work to be done and we are thrilled to get dirty and watch the transformation.  I have decided to dust off the ol’ blog and document this experience…. I have a feeling 60 year old Kate and Farra will appreciate it! 🙂
