Hey, my name is Lena. I have completed 500 + hours of Integrated study with the Soma Yoga and Medicine School. It has been pivotal in supporting my journey of healing.
Elemental Yoga, Yoga for healing, Ayurveda, Yoga Nidra, Shamanism, Kundalini and the Chakras are just some of things I have explored in this unique and exciting course.
One of the many things I looked at in depth whilst completing my teacher training course was Pranayama or deep breathing exercises. The stress that I’d been holding onto and doing my best not to reveal whilst I was working as a Deputy Manager had started showing itself physically some months before I made the decision to resign from my job. However, as soon as I left, my body pretty much fell apart. A pulled hamstring, back issues, and a tightness in thigh of my other leg that I’d never before experienced could only be as a result of stress. Broken and burnt out is how I would describe myself at this point in my life.
So, for a period my movement was extremely limited. And this was all happening 6 months into my teacher training!
This was when I discovered the transformational benefits of pranayama. I found that taking the time to be still really helped me. It also helped to quieten my mind which was what I needed. I know that regular practice of the various styles of pranayama helped me repair. Therefore, I like to give lots of attention to breath work, to tune into what is happening on all levels, as mind and body are undoubtedly interlinked.
There is much I would like to share with you.
You can expect an intuitive flow from me based on the needs of the group as well as the energies in the room. Practices will be themed around the elements as well as the cycles of the moon, as this is a time when energies and emotions can be affected.
Self-acceptance, self-love and being in the present moment are threads I regularly weave throughout my practices. Acceptance of where we are in the present moment can help us let go of some of the expectations we place on ourselves, both on and off the mat.
Expect movement and flow which may be dynamic or slow with moments of stillness in between. With mudra and mantra too.
I invite you to laugh, to smile, to cry, to let go. To simply be.
Yoga can heal and transform. My journey of learning, re-learning, discovering, and self-discovery is continuing. I hope you will join me sometime.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me for more info, questions or concerns.
And no, being flexible is not a requirement. 😊.
