Nous sommes fin avril et le constat est douloureux: il fait froid !
C'est donc aujourd'hui l'occasion pour moi (tant qu'il fait encore froid) de vous faire partager un nouvel exercice de respiration (après Nadi Shodana qu'on a vu en janvier dernier) appelé Kapalhabati, une respiration qui vous permettra de vous réchauffer.
A great thing to know when starting practicing yoga, is to be fully aware of what "practicing yoga" includes. We often think it simply means getting stretchy, bendy on a mat for an hour or two and that's it but hold on ! Yoga is much more than that !
Following one of my friend's question, i thought it would be nice to share here the advice i gave her when it came to the (crucial! ha) decision to invest in a yoga mat. I say invest coz some can get up to 100euros+ !
recall the first time i went to a yoga class, even more as it was a bikram yoga class ! One of the most intense yoga as it is done in a 40C heated and humid room, keeping up with a set serie of 26 postures (asanas). Hu ! At that time i did not know what yoga was about, neither what Bikram yoga was or i would have certainly cancel my class !
Hey there yogis ! If you have already taken one of my class you will remember before the start of every practice i ask you to set an intention (Sankalpa in Sanskrit) for the hour + that we will spend together. You might wonder what it really is and more important why we should set one. Here is my answer.
