The thing with Yoga and Ayurveda. Probably the most un-post like blog post ever…
but then I do tend to display attributes of the unconventional and non-conforming!
I know some of you just want to scroll straight away to my fabulously beautiful Infographic for this blog post, so click here!
The thing with Yoga and Ayurveda is that Blogging about it has proved to be difficult for me, I love writing and I really love Yoga and Ayurveda. Over the years of practicing both, I have become most passionate about the subtle factors and gentle teachings from Yoga and Ayurveda. These unique practices seem to be less used and for many undiscovered. And for me, it feels like everyone should know about these. Everyone should try a good dose of them, even for a short period, and see which ones can bring delight and Joyful living.
The thing with Yoga and Ayurveda is that the older I get the more I find these unique practices have created a refuge for my mind and a safe harbour for my heart.
I love my work, I love sharing my knowledge, and like I already said, I love writing. So it stands to reason that it should all just flow and be wonderfully natural and succinct. I should be living the dream!?
But no such karma for me dear readers. It tends to be a struggle to press that button “PUBLISH”. I have noticed my process…it’s not about not wanting to do the blog.
(This next bit is a little unfiltered glimpse of my mind conversations….which I must add, I have quite regularly, and this is normal for all of us. To converse with ourselves. Often my conversations lean toward the pro’s and con’s of any given situation. And from what I can understand, I often veto myself! 😂🤣)
And some of us (ahem! me, is who I mean!) have outright arguments with the She or He inside our brain. At a certain stage when I notice I am launched on a podium in my mind, well into a good old argument or a vehement debate with She, I suddenly become aware that I am so far from awareness of where I am and what I was doing! I notice that my face is uncomfortably contorting into all forms of frowns and grimaces. Unfortunately for my faithful loving dog, she ends up hearing me, and seeing my contorted face and she is looking at me with a tilted head and big brown eyes. I was not talking with gusto inside my brain, but outside my body, and she thought I was having a little strong DMC (deep and meaningful conversation🤷♀️ or more than likely LOA loud and outright annoying).
So back to the PUBLISH button. The thing with Yoga and Ayurveda is I do feel it is more about “OH MY GAWD, there is so much to say about my views and experiences. There is even more to say about Yoga and Ayurveda that I get stuck with simple things. Like the basics. I mean the basics are pretty basic, like, where to start? Most bloggers seem to have some sort of great blogger format. They do! Cause I looked, read and absorbed and was awed at how wonderful they write, how pretty and ultra techy their website/blogs are and they are all amazing and so interesting. (Yoga note: this conversation creates duality, a simple human feature, when we forget that we are all United in this life. It is based on a feeling of separation and a judgement of one being better than other. At this point I try to remind myself that I too have many of the similar wonderful-nesses, but different too, and that we are all One at the end of time and at the beginning.)
Seriously, any blog, most subjects has about 5 variables to off-shoot onto. With Yoga and Ayurveda its about treble that, because the intricacies and tangents are as vast as…like the ocean(Splash!). So I desist and display outright inertia (tamas, a heavy energy of dullness and a sense of stuck), complete complacency and inefficiency.
So some of my friends are like…getting a little concerned, ” How is your book going?” “Did you do the video for Insta yet?” They see that I am not performing all that I feel I should be doing to become what I consider will help the amazing-ness coming to us all. They want me to thrive, to share my work and my knowledge so that others can enjoy life as much as possible with whatever we have been given. It is wonderful to have such great friends, who love and support my work and my passion. They have been unfettered help and love, it keeps me going even when I get set back in doubt and disbelief and plain old poopy-ness.
I can see that I am slow and methodical. My natal constitution has a good old dose of kapha which tends to make me a worker bee and tenacious and attached, and mixed with my imbalance of Pitta, the project has to be perfect before I let it fly.
BUT I KNOW, RIGHT! We all know there is no perfect. Perfect is on the same scale as incomplete. And sure aren’t we all a great smoothie blend of both of those and countless other unique and weird attributes as human beings? I am perfect just as I am, but why do I focus more on needing to be complete before I get to do anything? Or when I feel incomplete today, I know that if I was complete I would still not feel perfect.
So that is why I dedicated this post to my wonderful passion, the thing with Yoga and Ayurveda is that it is about being human. Trying to care for yourself in a form that works for you, that will bring you to enjoy life with great ease and understand deeply that the fountain of youth is within, because we are never without.
I really believe in this work. It is worth the effort, the years of training I have taken, the time I have met with my supervisors and teachers, have all led me to sharing this programme.
This Yoga and Ayurveda Living course, which is ready to fly, has the great benefit of a teacher who will support you as much as I can. You will discover, learn, open your wings, understand, grow and nourish yourself with ancient wisdom, that you always knew. This course gives you a way to tap into this knowledge without disruption of service. I will be there, supporting your take off and landing(not with Ryan Air😂).
If you would like to meet the teacher, Me! Then I am running a few Retreat days, or taster events all details on this website
