a warm welcome to amalin yoga
assisting individuals to take care of their inner self, finding peace within
relax systematically – balance skilfully – live joyfully
We are taught a lot when we grow up; from the people around us, educational institutions and the society we live in.
One crucial aspect I believe we don’t really learn, is how to take care of our inner self.
You might call it your soul, being, spirit, your essence.
That part of you that yearns to feel safe, grounded and connected, and longs for a sense of deeply-rooted wellbeing.
When you are in that state, you can be in the world, be your best and most productive, feel contented, authentic and ultimately experience life more joyfully and with more ease.
One way to look after yourself more effectively on that deeper level, is to take care of your nervous system. The part of you that creates the link between feeling and thinking, your body – mind connection.
The job of one part of your nervous system, the autonomic nervous system (ANS), is to tell you HOW you are. It makes sure you survive in times of danger, and allows you to enjoy yourself, connect with others and blossom in times of safety.
If our ANS becomes unbalanced, we can start to suffer on a physical level, when different systems in our body, such as the respiratory, cardiovascular, endocrine and gastrointestinal system get affected. Or on a mood and mental level.
Ultimately how we experience life depends on the state of our nervous system.
We want to focus on our nervous system to be healthy and balanced, which will allow it to be adaptable, flexible and resilient.
This is where I believe the practice of yoga and yoga nidra fits perfectly – the all-inclusive ancient art and science of healthy living.
When you practise yoga you befriend your nervous system. You get to know it and deepen your understanding about what it needs and learn how you can support and nourish it.
By using subtle, powerful yoga practices you move your complete being towards the state of wellbeing and balance, including your nervous system.
When we are in balance we feel grounded, calm, healthy, resourceful, hopeful, effective, generous and in alignment.
We can live joyfully and with more ease.
