Ground & Connect Series
Thank You for checking out the Ground & Connect Practice Series I’ve created for you!
I’m so passionate about teaching Yoga as a way to full inhabit your body and become more connected to your self and the environment around you.
We spend much of our busy lives focussed on the upper parts of the body caught up in our heads or hearts. When things feel like they are getting out of control it is important to rest back in those parts of the body that are more connected with the earth.
In response to an article I wrote about the need for these practices, one of my students wrote,
“It has never been so hard to stay grounded, with so many distractions, be materialistic, personal issues and negative talk, it is a struggle not to get caught up in day-to-day trivialities that force us to lose focus on our own lives and journey.”
I’ve been sharing tips, teachings and sequences focused on Grounding & Connecting for years and now I have created an online practice series to help you to become more embodied and to find your strong roots.
This series includes:
- A downloadable Grounding Practices handout with my 5 top tips for re-connecting with your body, breath and the earth when things can start to feel overwhelming or distracting!
- A 60-minute guided “Grounding Flow” video with me
- A 7-minute Nadi Shodhana (Alternate Nostril) breathing video
- An 8- minute “Breath & Body Check-In” meditation audio (also downloadable in MP3 to take with you)
- A 15 minute guided Deep Body Relaxation meditation or Yoga Nidra which can be done in Savasana/Relaxation
You can choose to do this as a full 90 minute practice with the meditation at the start and the Yoga Nidra at the end.
You can do the meditation first thing in the morning and the yoga practice later in the day followed by the Yoga Nidra before bed.
You can do the yoga practice in the morning and the 10 minute meditation in the evening.
You can do one of the practices each day and alternate throughout the week.
You can simply go outside and put your feet on the ground, look up at the trees, breath in fresh air, swim in fresh water.
You can just sit and take 10 conscious breaths when you wake up.
Your practice is your practice. These are some tools and some tips that might help you and give you the inspiration and direction just to get onto your mat.
Don’t let overwhelm get in the way. Simple is often better!
