SQUASH & BUTTERBEAN STEW

Ingredients

  • vegetable oil 2 tbsp
  • onion 1 large, diced
  • butternut squash 500g, peeled and diced
  • garlic 4 large cloves, thinly sliced
  • ground cinnamon 1 tsp
  • ground turmeric 1 tsp
  • cumin seeds 2 tsp

  • butter beans 2 x 400g tins, drained and rinsed
  • flat-leaf parsley a small bunch, roughly chopped
  • dried mint 1 tbsp

Method

STEP 1
Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a large lidded pan over a medium heat and cook the onion for 10 minutes until soft, without browning, then add the diced squash and garlic. Cook for 8-10 minutes until softening at the edges. Add the spices, coat everything well, stirring for a minute or so. Season generously, then add in the passata, sugar and 250ml of water. Stir, cover with a lid, reduce the heat and cook gently for 20-25 minutes (stirring occasionally and adding a splash of water if it begins to look a little dry) or until the squash has cooked through.

STEP 2
Remove the lid, stir well and add the beans, and most of the parsley.
 

STEP3
In a separate small pan, heat 1 tbsp of oil and the dried mint over a medium heat for a few minutes, ensuring it doesn’t burn, then remove from the heat and set aside.


STEP4
Serve the stew with dollops of yogurt, scattering over the remaining parsley and the hot mint oil.

Continuing our Teacher Asana series, Annie shares her love of Reclined Supta Baddha Konasana (with props!) 

Blocks, bolster, eye pillow, blankets

Reclined Supta Baddha Konasana with blocks and a bolster is the dreamiest pose ever. When I need extra self love (this seems like every day lately) I spend at least 20 minutes here covered in eye pillows and blankets breathing into anahata – the heart chakra. It is actually Heaven on Earth! This pose encourages being in a shape with heightened awareness and cultivates inner listening. A restorative posture such as this one brings us closer to our affirmations and our stillness. In this posture you will get grounded, sloth off any stagnant energy around your heart, come back to you, and give yourself the fuel you need.


Nina Simone once sang, “You’ve got to learn to leave the table when love is no longer being served.” If you are depriving yourself of love, leave behind your busy life for a moment, get down on your mat and find this reclined bound ankle pose.

Light a candle, make a sup of herbal tea, fold a cozy blanket under the tailbone and place a bolster propped up on two foam blocks. Lay your spine slowly and gently on the bolster. Make any adjustments with your skull bones – higher or lower. Whatever feels good. You might like an extra blanket or scarf under the brain stem. The softness this creates in my neck and the tip of my spine is like butter. My scalp, skin, tendons, blood, hair, bones, saliva, blood all slow down. I can feel a magnetic sensation in the body like my cells bouncing off each other. Give your body a little massage – rig cage, back of neck, hips, thighs, heart and then settle the hands on the mat. 
Allow shoulder blades to drip off the bolster and yield to the ground. Relax your neck on the bolster and tongue, jaw and teeth release. There is no clenching here. The body is truly able to feel the breath and the rhythm of life. The prana flows in and out like velvet and we start to find the place of stillness that we so long for. 
As you lie on your props, simply lengthen the exhale without force, just by invitation. Notice the ebb, flow, rhythm, and texture of your breath. Continue to allow the prana to flow through your spine. Feel the dance of your breath from your scalp to your tailbone. The dance of breath continuing. The prana ever alive. Simply let go of whatever thoughts come in and no longer serve. The mind is hard to control, but use the breath and ancestral advice and you’ll get there. We are reminded of the ancient verse in the Bhagavad Gita:

Chapter 6, Verse 34 “Oh Krishna, the mind is restless, turbulent, strong and unyielding as difficult to subdue as the wind.”

Allow the soles of your feet to touch and the outer edges of your feet to rest on the mat. The thighs rotate out, but be generous with blocks, bolsters and blankets under the thighs so you are literally propped up and not hyper extending in the hips flexors. Make sure each support, whether a block or blanket, is the same height. Continue sinking the groins into the pelvis. In this asana, I love the release in the pelvis and the abductor muscles of the groin, but for me the real joy is in the letting go. You may want to assist the sinking action by laying a 5 pound sandbag across each inner groin, right where the thigh joins the pelvis (the bags will form a “V” with its apex at your pubis). But don’t use the bags unless your thighs are supported. 

As you exhale soften the elbows and melt the shoulders away from your ears. Breathe deliciously in this pose for 10 to 20 minutes or longer. 

Open all the doorways of the heart. Pull in brand new fresh affirmative energy directly into your heart. Whatever it is that our heart needs from us today. We know this practice – this yoga – opens us up –  listen – notice and transform. 

To exit the pose inhale and draw the knees toward the midline. Exhale and relax your knees to the mat. Lie on your side on the floor in fetal position enjoying the symphony of sensations in the body.

Stillness is a process, not an endpoint. In fact, the research of Dr. Ellen Langer suggests that it’s not those moments of stillness that bring us the benefits of mindfulness, but rather the process of continually coming back to where we are.

This pose can actually deepen our relationship with ourselves and those around us. My favourite part is definitely how being present with myself and cultivating relaxation in my body can make me more present for others, more attuned to their needs, and aware of how I choose to communicate. 

Notice all the magical synchronicities on your journey and remember you’re always supported.

Awake, my dear.

Be kind to your sleeping heart.

Take it out into the vast fields of Light

And let it breathe.

Say,

“Love,

Give me back my wings,

Lift me,

Lift me nearer.” – Hafiz
 

Join Annie’s divine Restorative Flow Classes every Wednesday at 7.45pm at Catford. 

KEEPING HEALTHY & WARM 

The chill is in the air again and the days are shortening. This doesn’t mean we need to hide away for the next 5 months! Here are few things to keep you warm, healthy and practicing over the next few months.
Start Your Day the Right Way
Make yourself a warming cup of lemon, turmeric, honey, ginger and apple cider vinager. This tonic boosts for immune system, improved digestion and provides probiotics to the gut.
Joining one of our online 7am Sunrise Classes or a 10am in studio class allows the body to wake up and warm up in a gentle but powerful way. 
Take Time For Yourself
The year may seem to be running away from us with Christmas knocking at the door…but today try and find time to do something just for you. Rest and self care is the best way to protect yourself from colds and bugs. Whether it’s going to bed an hour earlier or spending 10 minutes Reclined Supta Baddha Konasana, do something for you. 
Hot Yoga
An easy way to warm up! Hot Yoga has so many benefits; it nourishes your skin, gives you a cardiovascular boost, helps with stress reduction and improves flexibility. Join one of our 10 hot classes a week and see for yourself. We have Hot, Warm & Yin/Yang Classes.

YH TIMETABLE
Sunday 3rd October | 1-3pm | £20 | Catford Studio 
Do you struggle with the idea of getting upside-down and jumping up in the middle of a room? Want to improve your hang-time or simply start your journey to finding flight? PLUS have fun in the process? This 2 hour workshop will equip you with the knowledge and confidence to get you playing handstands. You can try out your handstand with these 6 steps to flight. David is showing his handstand here for inspiration! 
  1. Come into downward facing dog with your hands about 6 inches away from the wall.
  2. Walk your feet in closer to your hands, bringing the shoulders over your wrists and, if possible, your hips over your shoulders.
  3. Keep your right foot on the ground lifting onto the ball of it and begin to bend at the knee. Lift the other foot off the floor straightening the lifted leg behind you. Take a few hops here, jumping off from the bent leg and lifting the straight leg toward vertical. Flex your lifted food the entire time for engagement.
4. Try bringing both heels to the wall. Keep your head down between your upper arms and breathe deeply.
5. Practice taking the heels off the wall and balancing, remembering to keep your feet flexed. You will need to strongly engage your legs and reach up through your heels. You can also start to work on bringing your gaze to the floor.
6. Bring one leg down at a time and rest before trying to kick up with the opposite leg for balance.

Continuing our Teacher Asana series,
Kasia shares her love for Bakasana / Crow pose 

Crow (Crane) aka Bakasana or Kakasana, is probably one of the first arm balances that we all get introduced to in our yoga practice. Bakasana is performed with straight arms, in Kakasana elbows are slightly bent. 

Why I love it
It’s a fun and invigorating pose, that invites playfulness into the practice and gives you a sense of achievement and enjoyment when you catch your balance. It’s also a pose that can be modified if your wrists are a bit sore – see below my tips.
It’s one of those poses that when you find comfort and balance in it, you want to explore more – for me it was like a door opening up the world of all other arm and hand balancing poses. 🙂
,How to prepare for it 
Make sure you warm up your wrists. A few circles and some poses that add weight bearing – like a few sun salutes would be great.

Top Tips:
Start in a squat or Malasana. Open your knees as wide as the hips and see if you can slide the knees into your armpits  – if this is quite challenging bend your elbows more and place your knees on the outside of the elbows – hug them in. Have your hands spread out on the ground, gaps between each finger. Lean forward, keep going back and forth until you feel that you can lean forward enough to stay balanced, but legs start becoming lighter.
You can start taking one foot off the ground then the other, once you feel more comfortable try both at the same time.

The top tip is to lean forward enough that legs become lighter, but to also activate your feet – don’t let them feel heavy dragging you down, activate – big toes touch and zip your heels towards your bum.
Have fun.  
 
Variations
Baby Crow – use your forearms instead of your hands! This is a fun variation that can be used if you’re afraid of the hight of the usual crow balance or if you want to give your wrists a little break. 
Place your forearms on the mat, slide your knees up to your armpits, lean forward enough that the legs become lighter and start lifting then engage your feet – heels up to your bum. Active legs are key 🙂 see pic below.

Here’s my mini video tutorial on Crow – enjoy. https://www.instagram.com/tv/B_12vy3DP2n/?utm_medium=copy_link

3. Add the stock/broth, pop the lid on, bring to the boil then immediately turn down to a medium simmer for about 15 minutes until the veg is tender. (While the soup is simmering, prepare the herb drizzle, chop up halloumi & pat dry).

4. Add the milk and kale and any herb stalks, stir and simmer for another 3 minutes.

5. Blitz the soup straight away until creamy, add a splash more water if too thick and season to taste. Serve up each bowl with a drizzle of olive oil if you like plus chopped herbs and extra pepper.

6. Straight away, heat up a large frying pan, add more ghee/oil & add the halloumi cubes spacing it out so they’re not overcrowded & fry for a min until golden, turn over & repeat. Serve straight away on top while they’re hot and perfect.

YH Weekly | Autumn Calling

*|MC:SUBJECT|*

WELCOME TO YOUR YH WEEKLY

The long Summer nights have passed and we are now in a season of transition as we approach the Autumn Equinox (September 22nd). The Season of Autumn will slow things down and lead you to what you need. It is a time of Harvest. As the leaves change colour and the trees shed what they no longer need, the same is happening for you. It’s time to reflect on the year that has passed so far and start to invite in what you desire for the last few months. We have a few lovely events coming up that will help with this…

Our marvellous teacher Imir is launching her next 200HR Yoga Teacher Training. This beautiful course is designed to allow you to explore your practice, understand the true meaning of Yoga and learn so much more about your true self. It spans over 14 weekends from October 2021 to February 2022, the perfect time of year for self care and exploration. More information is below, including details on Open Day’s Imir is hosting. 

Alice continue’s our Teacher Asana Series by sharing her love of Savasana. A perfect pose for rest & reflection. 

We also have great  Autumn Workshops coming up. There are workshops to go deep with in (Sound), to play (Handstand), to nourish (Prenatal) and to energise (oils). Read on to find the Workshop for you.

FIND OUT MORE

Continuing our Teacher Asana series,
Alice shares her love of Savasana 

You will find Savasana, or Corpse Pose, at the end of almost every asana (posture) practice. Savasana is the practice of becoming still and allowing the mind and body to settle in order to rest deeply. Savasana gives us the opportunity to recognise the shifts in physical, mental and emotional states as a result of one’s practice. It is also an opportunity to let go of ‘doing’ and give permission to simply ‘be’, which can often lead to experiencing bliss, or a complete state of wholeness. Whilst Savasana is most often found at the end of practice it is sometimes offered at the beginning as a way of cultivating awareness and focus in preparation for the practice ahead. It can also be used as a stand alone practice as well as a pose in which to practice pranayama (breathing practices) and meditation, such as Yoga Nidra. 

Why I love it
We live in a society that glorifies being busy and productive and rest is often not recognised for its importance in maintaining a healthy balanced lifestyle. I have come to appreciate Savasana and how it allows me to slow down and unplug from the hustle. I also appreciate how accessible Savasana is and how most people can benefit from it. For me learning to relax has been life changing and has allowed me to manage pain, stress and anxiety.
How to prepare for it 
Preparation is key in order to enjoy Savasana. One must be warm, comfortable and supported in order to find stillness. It is also best enjoyed for a number of minutes in order to reap the rewards fully. It takes approximately 20 minutes to transition into the parasympathetic branch of the nervous system or ‘rest & digest’. This system dominates when we feel safe and at ease which is why the environment in which we practice savasana is important. When in ‘rest & digest’ we are able to relax, heal, digest our food optimally, and stress hormones are reduced. Whilst we may not be able to practice savasana for 20 minutes at the end of every class, even a few minutes will bring us closer to our body’s state of equilibrium. It’s also important to remember that a dynamic yoga practice mechanises the sympathetic branch of the nervous system, or ‘fight or flight’, the branch of the nervous system that responds to stressors and danger. Activating ‘fight or flight’ in a controlled way, such as in a dynamic yoga practice, and then allowing the body to rest and relax in savasana, is one way in which we can build resilience to stress. So it’s important not to miss Savasana out, especially after a dynamic class. 
Top Tips:
  1. Cultivate an environment conducive to rest. This might involve dimming the lights, using an eye pillow, lighting your favourite candle, shutting the door for privacy, turning off music or playing something which helps you to feel relaxed.
  2. Support the body – savasana is usually practiced in a supine position. You may find it helpful to support under the knees with a pillow or bolster and under the head with a folded blanket. Ensure you give space for the arms to either rest comfortably alongside you, or fold the arms in to rest on your body. 
  3. Use the breath and physical sensations as a mental anchor. When becoming physically still the mind can sometimes still remain busy. This is normal, especially if you’re new to yoga or managing stress, anxiety or overwhelm. Bring your focus back to the breath and the feeling of the body on the floor each time the mind wonders in order to bring yourself closer to bliss / complete state of wholeness.
  4. Keep practicing! Savasana is often the hardest posture as we are not taught the art of rest. If you find your mind is very busy during savasana or you feel physically agitated you might find it helpful to practice pranayama (e.g. breathe in for 4-6 seconds, breathe out for 4-6 seconds) or a guided meditation such as Yoga Nidra. Speak to your yoga teacher who will be able to assist you in finding more ease and make suggestions.
Variations
Chest elevated  – if you have a cough or breathing difficulties lying on your back may be uncomfortable. Try lying back over a bolster to keep the chest elevated which may prevent mucus from settling on the chest.

Side Lying – again this can be helpful for anyone with respiratory issues or if pregnant. You may wish to have a pillow or bolster between the legs to keep the hips stacked. 

Prone – for some lying on the back may feel uncomfortable or provoke feeling vulnerable. Laying on the belly, either on the floor or over a bolster, may be more suitable in order to cultivate a relaxed state of being.

YH Weekly | Returning to Routine

*|MC:SUBJECT|*
Welcome to your Yoga House Weekly

September has arrived and we’re here to help you get back to your healthy routine 🍁
We will be looking at the benefits of a routine and some tips on how to get there.  As the seasons are changing we have an Ayurvedic Cleanse to help you rejuvenate your system as we head into Autumn.
We have added THREE more Workshops including a Handstand Workshop & a Halloween Sound Healing. You still have time to grab the last few spaces on Kasia’s Reset Retreat. Junior will be joining her for a magical Cacao & Gong Ceremony! 
We also have Giovina sharing her love of Ardha Chandrasana in our Teacher Asana Series & Lina has a beautiful playlist for you. 

RETURNING TO ROUTINE

In the most part, humans are creatures of habit and a regular routine promotes a happier and healthier life. The lack of routine over the past year has contributed to higher levels of anxiety in many. We have put together some positive reasons for returning to your routine and some helpful tips to get you there. 

Having a regular routine can help you:

  • Lower stress levels
  • Form good daily habits
  • Take better care of your health
  • Feel more productive
  • Feel more focused

Try incorporating some of these tips into your day, remembering that just one small step to self care can have a huge impact. 

  • Staying active and getting regular daily exercise
  • Making sure that you are well-rested
  • Eating healthy meals on a regular schedule
  • Setting realistic goals
  • Trying to stay positive
  • Preparing for challenges but not ruminating things you can’t control
  • Staying in touch with friends and family members
  • Setting aside time for activities that you enjoy
At Yoga House, we have been adapting our schedule to the changing times. We have a great mix of Yoga, Pilates, Workshops & Retreats – for all abilities and needs. You can also access our On Demand Classes to suit your schedule & routine. 
OUR TIMETABLE

AYURVEDIC AUTUMN CLEANSE

We are slowly transitioned from Summer to Autumn. As this shift sets in, it is an ideal time to sync your body with the seasons by choosing a healthy cleanse to detoxify and rejuvenate your system. The benefits of Ayurvedic cleanse include improved strength, vitality, immunity and a renewed enthusiasm for life.

The traditional Panchakarma cleanse is a simple, 4-day detox that can easily be performed at home using herbs, skincare and an important therapy called oleation. In Sanskrit, pancha means 5, and karma means action. These are the 5 actions to perform every day for 4 consecutive days to get the most out of your Autumn cleanse.

1. Drink melted Ghee in the morning.

This is oleation. Ghee penetrates the tissues, softening and lubricating the hardened tissue that build as we age. Ghee also forces the gallbladder to replace old digestive enzymes with fresh ones, and serves as a magnet, pulling out toxins stored in the body to help reset your natural fat-burning metabolism.

Every morning of the cleanse the melted ghee will be consumed in increasing amounts for 4 mornings. The doses are as follows:

  • Day 1: 2 tsp Ghee
  • Day 2: 4 tsp Ghee
  • Day 3: 6 tsp Ghee
  • Day 4: 9 tsp Ghee

You may drink the melted ghee plain, or mix it into a small amount of warm, unsweetened almond or rice milk, with a pinch of ginger and cardamom for flavor. Do not eat or drink anything for 30 min. After 30 min, drink a glass of warm water with 1/4-1/2 of fresh lemon squeezed into it. 

2. Eat a mono-diet of kitchari

Kitchari is a traditional mung bean and rice porridge with a nourishing yet detoxifying effect on the body. Kitchari will be eaten 3 meals per day for the duration of the cleanse. This is a detoxifying meal that allows the digestive system to rest while still nourishing the body and keeping blood sugar levels stable.

Kitchari Recipe 

3. Drink a cleansing tea to assist the liver in detoxing and kidney function. There’s a range of teas to choose from. Look at Pukka & Yogi Tea for inspiration. You can also get a cup before or after class in the studios!

4. Garshana – Dry brushing the skin

The simple act of brushing your skin has a profound effect on detoxing the body. Use a dry skin brush, raw silk gloves or a dry cotton washcloth. Start gently and brush toward the heart in circular motions and then long strokes – this action stimulates the lymphatic system, enhancing circulation and helping to release toxins.

5. Abhyanga – Bath and self-massage with oil

Immediately after dry brushing, relax in a hot bath for 20 min – the most heavenly part of the cleanse! Follow your soak with an oil massage, moisturising the skin with organic coconut or sesame oil mixed with a few drops of essential oil.

Thank you organicindia.nz for your cleanse

ASANA SERIES | ARDHA CHANDRASANA

Continuing our Teacher Asana series,
Giovina shares her love of Ardha Chandrasana/Half Moon Pose
Half-Moon pose or Ardha Chandrasana is a great standing balance which strengthens and energises the whole body while stilling our busy minds.
It is a fairly challenging pose because, let’s be honest, there’s a lot going on: we balance on one leg while lifting the other leg away from our peripheral vision; we rotate the hips and torso, stretching arms away from one another and, if we choose to, we can direct the gaze away from the floor.
WHY I LOVE THIS POSE

For me, Half Moon uniquely reminds us to find the balance between strength and ease, Sthira and Sukha: too much of one or the other and we will lose the balance. 
Once we gain that equanimity, it is an asana which offers so many variations and possibilities to have fun with!
To prepare for it, it is definitely helpful to warm up thoroughly through a few Sun Salutations, High Lunges and a few single-legged standing balances (to familiarise with balancing on one leg).
To warm up further the hips, the torso and to start telling the body the directions we’re moving towards, I would definitely incorporate Triangle (Uttitha Trikonasana) and Extended Side Angle (Uttitha Parsvakonasana) poses.
These are also ideal starting poses from which we can organically transition into Half Moon Balance.
USEFUL TIPS
⁃ place the bottom hand on the floor or on a block a few inches in front of the pinky-toe-side of your standing foot;
⁃ This will allow the spine and torso to lengthen forward while the back leg lifts off the floor and firmly reaches back;
⁃ As you shift your weight into the front leg, press into the standing foot and leg;
⁃ You’re moving in four different directions: down through the pressing of the standing leg, up through the reach of the top arm, forward through the lengthening of the crown of your head and sides body and back through the reach of the top leg and foot;
⁃ Take your time!! Try not to rush the transition;
⁃ Oh yes, remember to breathe as you enter , you’re in and you exit the pose! 
VARIATIONS
⁃ to familiarise with the position of the upper body, hips and top leg, try Side Plank with the knee down; this helps to connect to the reaching in opposite directions;
⁃ If the floor seems to be miles away and we collapse, use a block or an alternative prop! It can feel pretty amazing!;
⁃ Practice by a wall, so your whole body is supported while you familiarise with the ‘shape’, the directions and the intentions of the pose;
⁃ If you fancy a few challenges, you won’t be disappointed here: try lifting the gaze towards to top hand or try floating the bottom hand off the floor; 
⁃ Lastly, for the super adventurous, why not attempting to bend the top knee and catch the foot with your top hand; then kick the foot back into the hand for and added back bending experience (Ardha Chandra Chapasana);
Have fun in the process and enjoy the journey!!

Every Full Moon is filled with incredibly potent energy and signifies the completion of goals and peak vitality. This weekend we’re welcoming a Blue Moon, very lucky and magical!

Setting goals and intentions during it boosts that full Moon energy even further. Many believe the intentions you set during this time are so powerful and intense; they can continue until the next Blue Moon. Blue Moons are a time of clear-headedness and a great connection to Nature and the self or soul.
