Welcome to YOGA HOUSE
newsletter#13 September 2018

Hello September! The season for cosy jumpers, soups and warm teas is on its way, and how exciting! It will look absolutely stunning, covered in all the autumnal colours. 

This is the season that invites us to start slowing down a bit more and bringing balance back after the holidays. Summer time is a great way to recharge and explore, but sometimes our healthy routine can slack, so now you can bring the healthy balance back.

Looking after your body will benefit your overall wellbeing. Making sure you keep yourself healthy and strong through regular exercise (we of course recommend lots of yoga!)  and a nourishing diet.

What we eat will greatly influences how we feel on every level. You can boost your mood and energy levels by making some small changes in your every day routine. And if you feel guilty after holidays, a gentle cleanse or detox might be a good idea. I will be exploring a three day Ayurvedic cleanse (more detail below). But you should always research different options and find one that would suit your lifestyle.  

 
September at YOGA HOUSE  - WORKSHOPS + EVENTS

We have a selection of great yoga workshops and events lined up for you in September.  To book, simply go to our timetable, select your date and reserve your slot. 
https://yogahouselondon.co.uk/timetable/


SUNDAY 9th SEPTEMBER 17.30-18.45 SENSORY SOUND BATH with Steph and Laura
Sunday tonic to soothe the soul. After a popular first Sensory Bath, the girls are back to share the magic. Tantalise the senses as you are immersed in scent and sound. The session begins with activating your breath and voice with Pranayama and Mantra. Once tuned in and engaged to your own vibrations lie back and go on a cosmic journey, as healing frequency instruments and 
essential oils are woven through the crowd. Allow the vibrations to relax the body and soothe the mind as we journey inward to clear blockages making space for whatever is needed in that moment. The sound journey will include gongs, crystal bowls, shamanic drum, chimes, Native American flute and other percussive instruments. During the soul journey instruments will move around the room and a number of aromatic scents will be dispersed. Open to all levels. £15 pre booked or £18 on the door.

SATURDAY 15th SEPTEMBER 14.00-16.00 ARM BALANCING + INVERSIONS with Kasia
Learning safe ways and correct techniques to turn upside down. Building confidence and replacing fear with playfulness. We will break down some of the arm balances and approach inversions in a safe way. We will also look closely at Chaturanga - a pose that can transform your practice when done with the correct technique. 
The workshop will finish with a homemade vegan avocado and chocolate mousse.
Open to all levels £20



FRIDAY 21st SEPTEMBER 19.30-20.30 GONG BATH with Junior
Monthly sound bath run by our qualified Gong Master, who will take you on a magical journey with his three gongs. Deep relaxation, perfect for a Friday night. Open to all levels. £15 pre-booked or £18 on the door (gets booked up very fast).



SUNDAY 23rd September 14.00-14.45 FAMILY/KIDS YOGA with Kasia
Fun 45min session for little yogis (5-11yr) and their parents. Relaxation and fun stories involving yoga poses. Open to all levels. £12 one adult + child (£6 additional yogis).


SATURDAY 29th 17.15-18.15 GENTLE FLOW + KIRTAN with Dan
One hour of gentle movement, inspired by Qi Gong followed by mantra and music induced meditation. You will be led through call and response chants ~ Bahaman's. Bahaman simply means "sharing". Sharing is at the absolute heart of Dan's intention for these monthly Kirtans. His wish is to bring together a diverse community through the healing, uplifting and freeing vibration of these chants devoted to our connection to source, unity and love. Through chanting we begin a journey that focusses the busy mind on melodious mantras that are thousands of years old and have been chanted by communities over the centuries in the ancient language of Sanskrit. Eventually we will begin to detach from the deceptive surface layers of our turbulent minds and dive deep into our hear centre. Come chant with us! This is a friendly, casual and all-inclusive space for you to participate regardless of whether you are a "singer" or not. Come free your voice and heart and lets build some uplifting vibrations together. Booking is part of the normal timetable, £12 drop-in or free for members.

 
TIMETABLE CHANGES

We are introducing some exciting changes to our current timetable. There will be even more classes added during September, if there is anything you would like to see on the schedule in terms of classes or workshops we welcome any feedback so please do get in touch.

The new changes will be introduced throughout September so please keep an eye on our website and social media and we will also email out a full timetable plan to you very soon.

And just a polite reminder the studio space is a mobile + shoe free zone.


 
Ayurvedic Cleanse

My summer cleanse - If you feel like trying a little post summer cleanse, this three day Ayurvedic detox is a nice and gentle way of giving your digestive system a little break and boosting your overall wellbeing - combined with some gentle yoga you will feel refreshed after.

The cleanse consist of eating very simple, but nourishing food everyday and drinking herbal teas. If you are a big coffee drinker you would need to ease yourself before you take up your cleanse.


When you feel ready the plan would look like this:

Morning - try poached apples with spices (star anise + cinnamon).
Lunch + Dinner  - Kitchari (Ayurvedic staple healing food, mung bean dhal with lots of spices and rice).
Herbal teas to drink in between - try fennel or nettle tea.

Nothing more nothing less. There are some great recipes online for the ideas mentioned above and I'll be using Jasmine Hemsley's book East by West.

We welcome any feedback to each and everyone of our newsletters as our community continues to grow, we love that you are a part of our journey together. 

The holidays are in full swing now, and as you have probably noticed a few classes have been postponed for the summer timetable, but the majority are running as usual. We have been overwhelmed by your support, with a large number of classes hitting waiting list. Many of you also took up the July offer of 3 extra classes on the 10 class pass, so a BIG thank you to everyone that has been attending and supporting our yoga community, with clients also travelling from afar to practice in our beautiful space.

And if you're away, remember that you can always create your own simple flows to keep your practice going.



This year's summer heat wave and planet retrogrades feel like it's asking us is to go inward, to reflect on the past six months and create plans for the remaining months. At Yoga House we have some amazing adventures lined up and we're working to create special moments for all so watch this space...

If you feel the shifts of energy and get overwhelmed, try slowing it down and focus on the positive. Self reflection and living with intention is a great way to achieve a sense of wellbeing. Focus on the positive and life will change in your favour. And let's enjoy the summer whilst it's here!

SUMMER RECIPE FOR YOU  - ROSEMARY AND OLIVE OIL CAKE

There's nothing better than warm summer evenings when you have some delicious homemade cake to enjoy. Here's a slightly out of the ordinary but delicious cake. Give it a try it's super easy to make. 

The cake recipe I'm going to share with you involves olive oil, rosemary and lemons - delicious combination! I found it in the 'foodism' magazine.

It takes 15 mins to prep and approximately 50 mins to bake

Here's what you need:
50g of plain flour
125g of ground almonds
2 and 1/2 tsp of baking powder

200g caster sugar
250ml of light olive oil
5 eggs, lightly beaten
1 and 1/2 tbsp of chopped rosemary
zest of two unwaxed lemons
fresh raspberries to decorate - or any other seasonal fruit
icing sugar for dusting


Method:
Preheat the oven to 160 degrees and grease a cake tin (20cm round shaped would work well). I like adding breadcrumbs to the greased tin, shaking them around just to create a thin layer of breadcrumbs sticking to the bottom and sides - turn it upside down so the excess breadcrumbs fall out, we only need a very thin layer - this helps the cake not to stick to the tin. 

Sieve the flour, baking powder and ground almonds into a large mixing bowl, add sugar and stir everything together. In a separate bowl lightly beat the eggs then add them to the flour mix. Mix together, then add olive oil, chopped rosemary and lemon zest - mix well until all combined and smooth. Pour the mixture into prepared tin and place in the middle of the oven. Bake for around 50 minutes. The cake will still have a slight wobble, but when cooling down it will set nicely. Once cooled dust it with a bit of icing sugar. Top up with fresh fruit and enjoy with a nice cup of tea. This cake might even make you want to grow your own rosemary! ;-)

 
HOLIDAY READ

'The way of the heart is the way of courage.It is to live in insecurity, it is to live in love and trust it is to move in the unknown. A person who is alive, really alive, vitally alive, will always move into the unknown. There is danger there, but he will take the risk. The heart is always ready to take the risk, the heart is a gambler.'

This is a little quote from a book about COURAGE by Osho, one of the books I'm enjoying reading this summer.

Osho wrote over 650 books (transcribed from audio and video recordings of his talks)  and has been selected as one of ten people - along with Gandhi, Nehru and Buddha - who have changed the destiny of India. He emphasised the importance of meditation, mindfulness, love celebration, courage, creativity and humour.

The holiday season is upon us. We hope the glorious weather has been making everyone feel wonderful and happy. We would love to encourage you to keep your practice up over the holiday period, even if you're going away and won't be attending classes at the studio as often during the summer.

You can design your own flow or start with a few sun salutations, some grounding warriors, adding floor stretches - maybe inspired by your favourite yin poses, and finishing with a few minutes in seated meditation or savasana.

Take advantage of our Summer Offer - for the month of July if you purchase a £100, 10 session package we will give you 3 additional classes, so £100 for 13 sessions to be taken within 3 months of purchase.

Thank you to all who took part in our first  Yoga House challenge! We absolutely loved seeing all the entries, they are truly wonderful. Winners to be announced over the next few days. I'm sure we will do another challenge very soon.

BOYS AND YOGA 

We are on a mission to encourage more men to try yoga. Did you know that traditionally yoga was a male only practice, until the first yogini  - Indra Devi was accepted to study under Sri Krishnacharya around 1937. 

We asked our in-house Yogi to tell us what made him start yoga as we would love to see more men joining the classes. Yoga is a wonderful combination of full body workout and releases stress and anxiety in a very effective way. 

See below why and how Junior started his yoga journey.


Why did I start yoga…………?
I had heard a lot about this thing called ‘’YOGA’’. You could say curiosity was about to kill the cat because I was very curious. I had heard so many good things, how you exercise to move your body and mediate, but at the same time receive multiple benefits and peace of mind, relief of anxiety and how could I forget, flexibility. I still remember heading into my first yoga class many moons ago and being the only guy in the class. I was riddled with anxiety and nerves even though I had a history in movement and dance that had no bearing on embarking on my first yoga class. Thoughts already started to pop into my head that I was going to be the worst man in history to try yoga. Fast forward to the end of class and I was sweating buckets, achy from the stretches, but as if someone said abracadabra! I felt as if I was floating - nobody could ruin my vibe. So, I slowly started to return to this class because of that feeling I felt, and more and more I started to really grasp some understanding. Over the years as I dedicated time and practice to the point I now teach, I’ve started to notice the increase in male teachers and men in class which is fantastic. My mission within the UK is to bring more men to yoga, if more men could attended yoga we could potentially help to battle the statistics of suicide (75 per cent of all suicides are committed by men under 45 in the UK and ROI). Allowing men to express themselves and not attach it to weakness or anything of the lesser, and we can start this step. Yoga House has a great sense of community, friendless, heart and spirit. I encourage all the gents out there to give yoga a try, what have you got to lose? 



 
YOGI FUEL

New cold pressed BOOSTER shots have arrived at the studio! Give yourself a little healthy kick before or after your practice with one of our new shots available to purchase. We have three flavours to chose from, all cold pressed and full of goodness!!

YOGA HAPPINESS

It's so amazing seeing so many of you enjoying the studio, it really feels like we are building a wonderful Yogi Community in Lee and the surrounding areas.

May brings us two Bank Holidays, which is a great opportunity to slow down and take time to do something you really enjoy and love.
Self care is so important - after all you can't pour from an empty cup.

The studio will be open this Bank Holiday as usual and we are going to treat you to some special sessions and goodies to show our gratitude for your wonderful support.

This week we are starting a new class, putting emphasis on meditation, but making it accessible and user friendly to all. Join Junior on Fridays at 7pm for a 60min Soul Flow + Sound Meditation.


Plus we have some amazing workshops lined up for you in May, with an Acro Yoga workshop in early June - more details to follow.

BANK HOLIDAY SPECIAL 

The studio will be open as usual throughout May Bank Holidays... and this weekend we will be treating you to some amazing goodies. Including free booster shots, granola breakfast, juices and some delicious vegan cake. 

We are really excited to offer you a Sunday Bank Holiday special Sound Meditation class at 7pm on 6th May, with our guest teacher Maria Tjader. (This follows our usual Candlelit Flow to Restore at 5.30pm).

In this one hour session you will be tuning into your body's intelligence through guided meditation, gong bath and chanting (don't worry if you are not a great singer, feel free to just experience the sound by listening if you prefer not to take part). Connecting deeper with your own resources to hear, feel and see what is needed to transform yourself and your life. We hope you can join us for this magical event.


~~ Maria brings transmissions, wisdom and stories from both East & West. She was born in South Korea, adopted to Sweden at 18 months old and has been living in London for 15 years. Her life journey is about unity, acceptance and inclusion. 
Self healing is an ongoing process that she feels very passionate about. She trained as a Masseuse 9 years ago and since then has qualified in Angelic Reiki, Life Coaching, EFT & Matrix Re-imprinting, Theta Healing, Sound Healing and Family Constellations.
Maria has been part of many different circles led by healers and shamans. The powerful feeling of being connected and having a sense of belonging, had a big impact on her and that inspired her to facilitate this for others too. ~~
 
COLLABORATION with SWEATY BETTY BLACKHEATH  

We are very excited to be supporting the lovely Sweaty Betty shop in Blackheath during the Mental Health Awareness week in May.

RECIPE FOR YOU

A super easy and delicious WATERCRESS soup that will bring spring to your plate. 

Ingredients:
1 onion chopped
25g of butter
250g of chopped and peeled potatoes
500ml of chicken or vegetable stock (I often use organic Kallo stock cubes for lower salt content)
2 bags of watercress, or one bag of watercress and the same amount of spinach, or one bag of watercress and one bag of green leafy pea shoots
cream either just to drizzle or if you want more creamy taste add 50ml
salt and black pepper to taste

This is how to make it:
In a large pot melt the butter and add chopped onion. Keep stirring until the onion gets soft, but not browned. Next add chopped potatoes and all the stock. Cover the pot with a lid and cook on a low heat for about 20mins. When potatoes are almost cooked add the watercress/spinach/pea shoots and cook for another 5 minutes, no longer. Take off heat blend in a mixer, then add a pinch of salt and black pepper to taste and cream if using.

Soups make a perfect and easy lunch or early dinner meal. Packed with lots of veg and nutritional warming goodness. Just what your body and soul need. Yum.
YOGA Retreats  

A few of you mentioned to me that you would be interested in coming to a yoga retreat. I have few ideas in my head already so hopefully I will be able to share some example locations, dates etc. with you very soon. Any suggestions feel free to send my way. Retreats, apart from great yoga, would definitely include good food and some lovely scenery.

Our open weekend is going to happen on Sat 17th - Sun 18th Feb, I will be sending a separate invite with the exact timetable, but think free yoga, good vibes and some healthy snacks. :-)

LITTLE YOGIS

Family/Kids Yoga (5-10yr olds) will be happening a little later this month - Sunday 25th February. A fun 45min sessions for little Yogis and their parents 2pm at Yoga House.

We learn gentle yoga poses through stories, talk about breath and simple meditation techniques. No experience necessary. 

 
YIN YOGA + AYURVEDA IN GOA

Early March I will be leaving you again to attend another training with The Yoga People. This time it's all about the amazing practice of Yin yoga and Ayurveda, in beautiful Goa. I'm very excited about this training and can't wait to bring the new knowledge into action.

Ayurveda is an ancient holistic (whole body) healing system. It was established around 3,000 years ago in India. It's based on a belief that health and wellness depend on a balance of mind, body and spirit. Its goal is to promote good heal and happiness. Through diet, yoga, meditation, understanding your doshas (energies) and keeping them balanced.


Yin Yoga is a slow paced style of yoga, with postures being held for longer periods of time.  It helps to improve flexibility. Yin stretches and targets connective tissues between the muscles and fascia in the whole body. It helps to increase circulation in the joints and is a wonderful way to practise stillness of the mind. Yin also helps to regulate the flow of energy in our body.

It's going to be amazing!

January Newsletter

Welcome to MYOGA
newsletter#5 January 2018

HAPPY NEW YEAR !!

Happy 2018 Yogis.

I hope you are all set and ready to go...

A couple of years ago on New Year's Day I read an 
article by Hip & Healthy 'If You Only Do One Thing This Week...Create A Life That You Love' and it really inspired me to make some changes in my life.

Two years on and I really believe that those small shifts we make in our mindset make a huge difference. 
After all we create our own reality and with hard work we can make things happen.

Sharing these steps with you, they might inspire you too.

Do more of what you love. For me it was always about yoga, so I made this statement my mantra. It's not always easy to find time for yourself, but if you dedicate even just few hours a week to do what you're passionate about, your level of happiness will increase significantly.

Surround yourself with like minded people. Find your tribe and love them hard. The connection with like minded people creates a wonderful, inspiring energy that can lift you up and keep you motivated in reaching your goals.

Practise self-love. Such an important part in creating a happy life. It's not about self obsession or egoistic traits. Just being kind to yourself and fully accepting and loving who you are. Knowing that you are enough and that you are complete. Being your true self and believing in yourself. When you become your own friend life is so much better!

Fake it 'til you make it. Simply start living your ideal reality like you're already there, and things will start to shift for the better. It works I promise! 

Embrace change and just do it. Embrace the changes happening in your life, don't give up on your dreams even if it feels like you're going nowhere. Your dreams are here for life they don't have an expiry date, just get up and keep trying. Put in the hard work, stay positive and the results will appear soon enough. 

 

some B I G news !!

I'm super excited to announce that MYOGA with Kasia will very soon open as a yoga studio in Lee Gate Centre with a new name ~ Yoga House London. I dreamed about opening a studio for a while, hoping to enhance the growing yoga community in our local area. We are now in the process of doing some small renovations and hopefully by the end of January will be open for classes!

For some time now, I was looking for a perfect space big enough to cater for all. To run all my classes in one location, workshops, meditation sessions and inviting other teachers to share their knowledge and love for yoga. 

My dream is to create a welcoming space for all to enjoy, with a community feel at its heart. Somewhere where you can unwind, reconnect and find happiness. An inspiring, creative space to make you feel welcomed in. I will put a lot of hard work and my heart into making it happen. I hope Yoga House will become your yoga destination, filled with lots of good vibes.

The studio will offer yoga for all including kids/family sessions, classes at warmer and room temperature, dynamic vinyasa, restorative, rocket, candlelit, gong, beginners yoga, community classes supporting charities and some more...

For the time being all my classes are running as usual in the current locations. Look out for updates about the opening weekend for the new studio. I'm nervous, but also very thrilled. As they say 'A good goal should scare you a little and excite you a lot.' I cannot wait to practise together in the Yoga House!! 

LITTLE YOGIS

Family/Kids Yoga (5-10yr olds) will be back on Saturday 6th January. A fun 45min sessions for little Yogis and their parents at 2pm, still at Complementary Health Centre, Lee.

We learn gentle yoga poses through stories, talk about breath and simple meditation techniques. No experience necessary. You can book via the link below.

GIVE YOUR BODY SOME GREEN ENERGY

After all the Christmas indulgence I decided to start the New Year with a healthy routine.
I ordered a pack of green cold pressed juices from Plenish. I am aiming to start my day with this green goodness instead of my beloved cup of coffee... Yikes!! Wish me luck!!

Drinking green juice packed with chlorophyll will boost your immunity, and make you glow from inside out. Apparently it's best to drink first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, when our cells are hungry for the nutrients these juices provide. Plus they taste delicious. Visit their page to see what they have on offer.

December Newsletter

Welcome to MYOGA
newsletter#4 December 2017

YEAR OF YOGA

Welcome to the last newsletter of 2017!

Oh what a year it has been!!!

Last December I was just approaching my exams to qualify as a yoga teacher and I remember being completely terrified, having visions that no one would even come to my classes and how on earth would I get a word out of my mouth whilst teaching... But you did and I'm so grateful that you helped to turn my dream into reality.


Now I can't even imagine my life without yoga. It has helped me on so many levels, it turned my life around and saved me when I was feeling down. With regular practice anyone will experience the magic of yoga. It's available to all. It really doesn't matter if you can touch your toes... The purpose of yoga is to find stillness and connection with yourself. Self acceptance. Breath. Being present in the moment. Being kind to self and others. And this is why I decided to teach, to share my love for yoga and to shout out about the positive change it can create in your life and the life of others around you.

Becoming a teacher was my ambition for some time. Self doubt stopped me from reaching it. But if you follow your heart your dreams will find their way.
"When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it." (P. Coelho)
Now go and get these dreams! 

 

YOGA GLOW

Winter is surely on its way and nature starts entering the hibernation state. It's only natural to feel more tired, sluggish and slow.... Yoga is a perfect way to keep that internal fire burning, giving you energy and warmth. Keeping your practice regular will strengthen not only the body, but also the mind. It will actually make you glow and soon enough everyone will want to know your secret.  

I'm very excited to say that after my recent training in Thailand I am soon going to introduce rocket yoga classes in the local area. Rocket is a fun, energising practice that will make your heart pump, leave you feeling stronger, lighter and more 
flexible. It's a playful practice that will encourage you to have fun on the mat ~ it will get you moving, sweating, breathing, flowing and feeling great!! Once I find a suitable venue and time slot I will share the details. I can't wait to practice rocket together! Stay tunned.
 

WINTER WELLNESS WORKSHOP and LITTLE YOGIS

Family/Kids Yoga (5-10yr olds) will be back on Saturday 2nd December. A fun session for little Yogis at 2pm, happening every first Saturday of the month at Complementary Health Centre, Lee.

Join me for a WINTER WELLNESS workshop on Saturday 16th December, 2-4pm Complementary Health Centre Lee

I'm super excited to run this end of year workshop where we will let go of the old and set intentions for the new year ahead. This two hour workshop will include a 75min Rocket yoga practise followed by a delicious 40min Gong Meditation. D
eep relaxation via the magical sound of two gongs, run by a qualified Gong Master Junior Valentine who I've invited to this workshop. We will also treat you to some delicious snacks, Yogi tea and Christmas spiced Kombucha.

Spread the word and hopefully see you there, you can book online via my website.

BOOST YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM

Homemade Ginger and Lemon shots!!

So easy to make and perfect for a winter health boost! 

You will need:
~ 1 large ginger root (about 50g)
~ juice of half a lemon
~ honey
~ small glass jars

Simply peel your ginger and press in a juicer. Add lemon juice and honey to taste - you can also add a little bit of water if the taste is too strong. It definitely has a kick to it!! Divide into small shot sizes. Drink once a day and store the rest in the 
fridge. You can also add a small turmeric root and press together with ginger.
LITTLE TREAT 

Christmas is only a few weeks away so here's a little suggestion for you to treat someone dear in your life or even yourself! Beautiful handmade jewellery, that can also be customised. All done in SE London by my friend Barbara. Her attention to detail and skilful hands produce some lovely pieces, either yogi (like the lotus bracelet below) or non yogi themed. Check out her Instagram @bkblondon_jewellery for inspiration or visit her Etsy shop ~ https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/BKBLondon#about
Or message her to discuss custom made designs. One of my favourite necklaces done by BKB London is my banana leaf, specifically designed and made by Barbara to match MYOGA theme. :-)

November Newsletter

Welcome to MYOGA
newsletter#3 November 2017

HEALING YOGA

Welcome to my third newsletter.

I hope you are slowly adjusting to the cooler weather and shorter days. The changing nature really encourages us to slow down and look after our own wellbeing. 

I recently attended an interesting workshop, about how Yoga is the perfect solution for our mental wellbeing. It's a combination of physical exercise that keeps the body strong and healthy, and mindfulness that gives the mind a healthy break.

The workshop talked about how Yoga helps us to build a healthy self awareness and self acceptance. It anchors our mind into the NOW
. By practising yoga we put ourselves through a physical challenge. Intentionally putting ourselves into stress, but through breath and repetition we get our bodies stronger and teach our mind that we can survive this, creating positive experiences. Getting stronger and more resilient when faced with future challenges. Even if yoga is only about the physical asana for you, it still, behind the scenes, works wonders on your mind.

Give yourself a gift of Yoga! It's a life long lasting practice that only keeps giving the more you put into it

YOGA BREAK and MY TRAINING

I'll be away for two weeks in November (9th - 24th), attending Rocket Yoga training in Koh Samui Thailand, with The Yoga People. There will be no classes then, but I hope you will keep your practice up by using some of my online sequences or improvising your own. This is a great way of building up self practice.
Be as creative as you like and I'll be back with even more ideas and classes to share with you! :-)

Always start with a warm up, it's nice to do few easy stretches, maybe using cat/cows, then 3-4 rounds of Sun Salutations A, adding 3 Sun Salutations B. Experiment with some poses, like warriors, standing balances, forward folds and easy backbends, finish off with a quick 
meditation.

Using mantras always helps me to settle the mind when I'm meditating. Simple words and phrases have the power to invite positive changes in life. Use anything that's meaningful to you or feel free to use some of my favourite ones listed below. Recite these words with breath, noticing how the mind quietens with each repeat. Continue for few minutes or as long as it feels good for you.


Mantra 1: inhale 'Just' exhale ' Breathe'
Mantra 2: inhale 'I am Strong' exhale 'I am Enough'
Mantra 3: inhale 'I love' exhale 'I am loved'
Mantra 4: inhale 'I am well' exhale 'All is well'
Mantra 5: 'I am grateful for all that is unfolding in my life and all that is yet to come'

NEW WORKSHOP and LITTLE YOGIS

Family/Kids Yoga (5-10yr olds) will be back on Saturday 4th November. Fun session for little Yogis at 2pm, happening every first Saturday of the month at Complementary Health Centre, Lee.

Another big thank you to all who attended the YOGA HIGH arm balancing and inversions workshop. It was such a great day and I had lots of fun sharing tips and techniques of accessing these poses safely. I hope you feel more confident now and remember about that immortal nectar being preserved every time we invert the body!! :-)

Watch the space, a brand new workshop is already being planned for the beginning of December, hopefully including some delicious food to introduce the concept of Winter Wellness!


You can find the full and up to date schedule, plus book online via my website. https://www.myogalondon.co.uk/classes
YOGI FOOD

Autumn definitely dominated my kitchen! The food I've been creating and craving is full of autumnal colours, filling and nourishing. 

Here's another simple and delicious recipe that will keep your appetite satisfied and warm you inside out.

Yummy red lentil dhal - do give it a go!

Shorter days mean more time for cozying at home with a good book. Here are some books that I recently read and found very interesting.

'The Power of Now' by E. Tolle, is a wonderful book , a must read for anyone interested in the concept of mindfulness and appreciation of the present moment. A modern guide to discovering inner peace and happiness of the mind.

'Gut' by G. Enders, is a fun read that gives very interesting insight into how important our gut's health is, in our overall wellbeing. Did you know that 90% of serotonin is produced and stored in our gut!! An unhappy gut can sometimes be the cause of an unhappy mind.

Welcome to MYOGA newsletter October 2017

AUTUMN WELLBEING

Welcome to the second newsletter.

Hope you're staying warm and slowly adjusting to the changing weather. Autumn is here and the change of season brings us cooler temperatures, but also a chance to turn the focus inward and look after our own wellbeing. I love this time of year, getting cosy, slowing down and letting go of the old. Woolly jumpers, warming teas and hot delicious stews, what's not to like! If you're worried about your health and wellbeing in these colder months, introducing few simple changes into your daily routine can help to balance out the cool environment.

Think things that keep us warm inside and out. Hot herbal teas or water with lemon and cardamon first thing in the morning will wake the body and keep you more energised. Treat yourself to a relaxing massage. Autumn can trigger conditions like anxiety, arthritis and overall stiffness in joints and muscles, so here's a good excuse for a nice treat.
Stick to seasonal food where possible, adding more warming meals on your menu.

And of course Yoga! Such a wonderful and effective way of keeping the body energised and strong, plus achieving a more balanced mind. 

YOGA POSES TO KEEP YOU WARM 

Practising Yoga is a great way of easing the body and mind into the changing season. Regular practice will keep you strong and healthy, working on boosting the immune system. 

Introducing some simple Yoga poses and breath exercises into your daily routine can bring great results, making you feel more relaxed and happy inside out!

Try Sun Salutations in mornings - you will feel much more energised throughout the day. Starting with 3-4 Sun Salutes A and 3 Sun Salutes B.
On my Facebook page you can find two quick videos taking you through Surya Namaskar A and B.

The perfect pranayama for the changing season, is one of my favourites - the alternate nostril breath. Nadi shodhana helps to balance the right and left sides of the brain. Our masculine and feminine energies, the sun and the moon. 

Find a comfortable sitting position. Place the left hand on your left knee. Move the right hand closer towards the nose. Take a deep breath through the nose, use the thumb to close the right nostril, exhale through the left. Inhale through the left nostril, close it with the ring finger, folding index and middle finger into the palm of the hand. Retain the breath. Exhale through the right, inhale slowly through the right. Close the right nostril with the thumb, retain the breath. Exhale slowly through the left. Inhale through the left, close and hold the breath. Carry on with the right. Keep breathing in this way for 5-10 cycles, then release the right hand on the right knee. Breathe in and out through both nostrils, feeling more balanced and relaxed.  
 
Family/Kids Yoga (5-10yr olds) will be back on Saturday 7th October. Fun session for little Yogis at 2pm, happening every first Saturday of the month at Complementary Health Centre, Lee.
You can find the full and up to date schedule, plus book online via my website. https://www.myogalondon.co.uk/classes

YOGA WORKSHOP

I'm very excited to host my first workshop, focused on arm balancing and inversions. Join me on Saturday 14th October 2pm-4pm Complementary Health Centre Lee, for two hours of fun, going through safe ways of turning upside down, building confidence and correct techniques. 

I love inversions and arm balancing, but I know they can seem quite complicated, even scary at first... I decided to design a workshop where I could share with you how I learnt to go upside down, giving you the confidence to try things out and having fun even if it involves falling over! 

Sounds good and worth a try? Please follow the link below to secure your spot.

TASTE AUTUMN

Keeping the body warm and nourished during cooler months will help to boost the immune system, keeping you healthy and energised. Eating seasonal food whenever possible will align you with changes in the nature. Besides autumnal foods are full of beautiful colours! 

Making soups is an easy and effective way of getting all the needed nutrients and keeping you warm.

Here's a simple, and delicious sweet potato and squash soup recipe. Give it a go!

TREAT YOURSELF 

I came across these lovely Yogi wall calendars a few years ago, and have been coming back for more each year. They are made from recycled paper and eco friendly ink, with beautiful illustration and inspiring quotes for each month.

The price is very reasonable, so you can even treat a fellow Yogi in your life to one too :-). Check them out here.

Welcome to MYOGA Newsletter 
September 2017

GETTING YOUR POST HOLIDAY BALANCE BACK

Welcome to the first MYOGA with Kasia newsletter.

Hope you all had a fabulous summer and are happy to be back!

It’s so easy to fall out of the healthy routine while on holiday, lots of travelling, stress with packing, no time to eat wholesome meals, piña coladas on the beach…. I know I’ve been there too. Not to mention our motivation and energy levels swaying more towards staying in horizontal position with a good book.

But do not worry, allowing yourself some down time is ok, even necessary, after all we all need some time to recharge and unwind.

Time away makes coming back to the usual routine that little bit easier and bearable and now as you’re here, lets bring the healthy balance back.

MORE YOGA AND NEW CLASS IN BLACKHEATH STANDARD

Having a regular fitness regime is a great way to recover from holiday sins and keep strong and healthy through out the year.

From September you will have even more chances to Yoga with me.

Hot Vinyasa, Dynamic Vinyasa Flow, Power Flow, Kids and Family Yoga, group and private sessions ~ all available with even more dates/locations added.
 
I’m very excited to announce that from Friday 8th September there will be a regular 10am morning yoga at Blackheath Complementary Health Centre.

Join me in this light and airy space, for 1 hour of dynamic flow to set you up for the weekend.
 
Family/Kids Yoga (5-10yr olds) will be back from Saturday 9thSeptember, fun sessions for little yogis at 2pm every first Saturday of the month at Complementary Health Centre, Lee.
You can find the full and up to date schedule, plus book online via my website. https://www.myogalondon.co.uk/classes

YOGA AT HOME

If you find yourself short of time and can’t commit to a regular class attendance, don’t worry, that doesn’t mean you have to stop doing Yoga. There are lots of free Yoga sessions on Internet.

I also created a YouTube channel where you can now find mini Yoga sessions to practise with me. Please use the link below or subscribe to my channel to get regular updates on new sequences:

FEED THE SOUL

Nourishing the body with healthy food is as important as working out. After all we need fuel to keep the body going. But food is not only that, food can make you feel amazing and even heal you.

Try using seasonal ingredients whenever possible. Our bodies adjust accordingly to the nature surrounding us, so it’s only natural to crave seasonal produce.

As Autumn is on its way, the colours around us change and it’s great to reflect that in the food we prepare.

Making food that warms your body and soul from inside out, will make the transition from Summer to Autumn easier. Why not giving this delicious and super easy recipe a go – perfect for a filling breakfast or light lunch.

You will need:
One small grated courgette – to create a nest for the fried egg, drizzle it with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Fry your egg and place on top. Sprinkle with lightly pan fried pumpkin seeds, chilli flakes and sea salt. Enjoy!
HEALING CACAO 

Healthy balance wouldn’t be a balance if it didn’t include some indulgence. I came across these amazing; ethically sourced chocolate disk infused with herbs, for eating and drinking and simply had to share them with you.

Check out their shop below and treat yourself to chocolate that not only looks great, but is also GOOD FOR YOU.
