Welcome to Term 4, Week 8: Exploring Energy!
What does energy mean for you?
TODAY I WILL SHINE
Esther Hicks explains:
"So many people need you to behave in a certain way for them to feel good. They condemn you for your selfishness. “How dare you be so selfish as to follow what makes you feel good? You should follow what makes us feel good.” At an early age, you were convinced that you weren’t smart enough to know and that somebody else should make the decisions… You could not live in this culture during the times of your life without getting a huge amount of information relative to that, just in the way people respond to the things you do and say."
And she continues:
"There is not something you’re supposed to do. There’s not something that you should do. There is only that which you are inspired to do. And how do you get inspired except by the contrast? It’s the life experience that gives you the idea of the desire, and then as you focus upon the desire, the Energy flows."
In our 'Yoga for the mind' opening sequence this week we will shed some light on "shining vs selfishness" and how to distinguish illumination from self-absorption, which is to say that these are not criteria for the purpose of judging others, but becoming curious about your own motifs and intentions and creating awareness through self-investigation.

Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self. THE BHAGAVAD GITA
Welcome to this Yoga class for beginners & intermediates, 75 minutes, intuitive and gentle with a challenging edge for healthy expansion. I am a certified and registered yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance (https://www.yogaalliance.org/TeacherPublicProfile?tid=152246) and a teacher of the team at the Yoga & Qigong School of Sumner (http://www.yogaqigong.co.nz/teachers.html) and specialize in intuitive yoga. My teaching is based on Hatha Yoga and the sessions will not only introduce you to yoga and guide you during practice, but also provide deep relaxation at the end of each class. I am also always happy to support you in developing your own personal practice. Please check our calendar (https://www.meetup.com/Yoga-Intuition/events/calendar)!
I encourage the usage of intuition in practicing Yoga. This can greatly help with learning to listen to your body, gently adjusting the postures to your individual needs, enhance your overall well-feeling, and support you to create a practice which becomes uniquely your own. Relaxation, conscious breathing and a good warm are also important components.
