There are no words to describe the afterglow and relief of a deep, heart opening, detoxifying yoga practice. After such a long period of indulgence and hibernation, it feels like a slow awakening, and a kinder form of indulgence that nourishes the body.I attend a vinyasa flow class offered by Sarah Carter, who prepares her room at St Katharine’s of Parmoor in Frieth, with blissful scents of cleansing joss-sticks, to help create a warm atmosphere for her tribe of yogis, new and experienced.
Twists and hip openers, fired with core work through her flows, help bring back balance and a sweet blissful glow.
I asked her for her January intentions, which she responded, “My top Yogic Wellness tips for 2018, are breathwork focus and a greatful heart. And of course a weekly practice of slow vinyasa yoga…”
Such wise words, as I forget to focus on breathing, and find myself worrying about nothing…it only takes a few slow inhales and exhales to put my anxieties right and to ground me.
I’d love to hear your tips on your January wellness intentions…
