Yoga and you...

Updated: Jan 18

Hello, Hola, Bonjour, नमस्कार, and welcome! Thank you for taking a look at my page and introduction to yoga. I am a qualified yoga teacher accredited in 200 hours teaching by the Yoga Alliance and 300 hours of teaching and study accredited by the World Yoga Alliance. Alongside my yoga teaching qualification, I am also a qualified teacher of Psychology and have been teaching A-level and GCSE psychology for over 15 years.


So enough about me! I am going to be focusing this page and website on the sharing of knowledge about yoga, wellbeing, and the links between yoga and positive mental and physical health.


Today in my class we focused on alternate nostril breathing. Research from the British medical association (2017) shows that by practicing alternate nostril breathing morning and night can improve mental clarity, lower blood pressure, improve lung health and help relieve anxiety. This is a simple and quick activity that can be practiced similar to a focused meditation and bring on all of these wonderful benefits. So my yogi's have been set the task to give it a go and hopefully reap those benefits as they are with other aspects of practicing yoga regularly.


Why not give it a go yourself? Morning and night; breathe in through the right nostril, blocking the left nostril, release the ring finger from the left nostril and cover the right nostril with the thumb. Then swap again, inhale through the left nostril and breathe out through the right nostril. Keep rotating for around nine or ten inhalations.
