WellBeing World Email Newsletter June 2014

Whats in this newsletter?   News of a New Class and Two New Weekly Specials. 

New Class - Simple Yoga for a Healthy Back
Simple Yoga for a Healthy BackAfter much research and testing I have just completed and released my latest class, Simple Yoga for a Healthy Back. The 35 minute session is suitable for all levels. The class uses gentle floor based postures and movements to help you achieve and maintain a healthy, happy back. find out more

Back pain affects 4 out of 5 adults. This might seem like a large number, but if we consider how often we move our backs and how each movement influences the back it perhaps in not so surprising. Each movement, stumble, impact or accident from childhood onwards has an effect, good or bad, on the health of the back. At some point later in life the wear and tear can all become too much and back pain is the result.

A well balanced selection of simple yoga postures, performed mindfully, can help you achieve and then maintain a healthy, happy back.  

So why is yoga a great way to look after your back?

  • Yoga encourages correct alignment it will help to remove any postural imbalances. It will encourage you to form new habits that are kinder to the body.

  • Yoga strengthens the core muscles. The core muscles provide stability for the lower back and pelvis.  To prevent injury it is vital that these muscles are strong.

  • Yoga improves mobility, lack of mobility greatly effects how we move and hold our body.

  • Yoga reduces muscular tension and increases flexibility.  Muscular tension is one of the biggest causes of back pain.

  • Yoga improves balance which helps to prevent future falls and stumbles. 

  • Yoga also removes muscular imbalances, helping us to work the body equally and not put more strain on one side than the other.

In Focus - Yoga for Compassion.  I am often contacted by people who struggle to find the time for both yoga and meditation so I decided to create a more meditative yoga practice. The class combines gentle yoga postures and simple elements of the ancient Metta Bhavana meditation technique. The Metta Bhavana meditation helps to develop compassion by increasing metta (loving kindness) and cultivating positive feelings towards ourselves and others.

Why develop compassion?  There are scientific studies that suggest there are physical benefits to practicing compassion. People who practice regularly produce 100 percent more DHEA, a hormone that counteracts the aging process, and 23 percent less cortisol — the “stress hormone.”  In addition to the science there are plenty of other good reasons to increase compassion. 

His Holyness The Dalai LamaOnly the development of compassion and understanding for others can bring us the tranquility and happiness we all seek.” – The Dalai Lama.

With raised levels of compassion come joy and happiness and a deeper understanding of others. By developing compassion and being kinder to ourselves we are able to reduce negative feelings and thoughts.  We become less critical and live with more acceptance of both ourselves and others.   By becoming more compassionate we activate the areas of the brain that are responsible for healing and calmness.  If the mind is full of positive, caring, kind and compassionate thoughts there is little room for other negative emotions such as hatred, jealousy, greed or anger. 

Experiencing true compassion needs to be practiced, the more we practice it the more we can cultivate it and allow it to radiate towards all beings selflessly whilst encouraging negative thoughts and emotions to dissolve.  By reducing negativity life becomes more joyful.

What is compassion?  Compassion is a selfless show of kindness. It is when we care for or offer to help to another in need without judgment or pity or looking for recognition.  Compassion is sincere, genuine and selfless.  It is the sacred element that flows through the heart chakra.

"In order to have compassion for others, we have to have compassion for ourselves.” - Unknown

WellbeingWorld Email Newsletter March 2014

 Hello, We hope you are well.

What’s in this Newsletter?  News about our Price Drop, an exclusive discount code,  and a feature about Yoga Vinyasas.

WellbeingWorld Price Drop.  We have just reduced many of our prices.  Downloads represent the best value by far so why not treat yourself to a new session or two and you could be using them in just a couple of minutes. 

WellbeingWorld gets Airborne.  Following the launch of the Yoga2Hear Inflight yoga class a selection of our audio sessions are being included in the inflight entertainment packages on the worlds twelve largest international airlines. Next time you're on a flight have a look for them in the guide.

Vinyasa Yoga - Fast and Effective.In Focus - Vinyasas.  Yoga vinyasa’s are simple to perform and can easily be squeezed into even the busiest of days. Your body and mind will benefit immensely from just fifteen minutes a day of vinyasa style yoga.  All you will require is a yoga mat and loose comfortable clothing.

The term vinyasa refers to “breath synchronised movement”.  With each inhalation and exhalation the body is moved harmoniously through a series of postures.  The synchronicity between breath and movement is maintained throughout the entire practice this helps to clear and focus the mind and assists the body physically as it moves between each posture.  When we inhale the torso naturally expands as the lungs inflate with air so during inhalation it is ideal to perform postures that elongate the torso.  When we exhale the diaphragm contracts and muscles are able to relax so any forward folding or rotating posture are perfect during exhalation it is also the ideal time to release and deepen various stretches and postures too. 

Rolling through cat (majaryasana) is the perfect example of a simple vinyasa sequence that allows for the expansion of the torso and the contraction of the diaphragm as you inhale and exhale.

Begin on all fours with your hands under your shoulders and your knees under your hips.  Exhale and as you do so look through your legs and round your spine up towards the ceiling, draw up your stomach muscles as you do so coordinating the movement with your lungs emptying and the diaphragm contracting as you inhale and lengthen your torso returning to your starting position and then tilt your pelvis up and lift your chest and head.  Continue to roll through cat co-ordinating your breath to you movement for five complete breaths.

Practicing vinyasas and bringing this fluid motion into your day will increase your heart rate, build long lean muscles, reduce excess body fat, clear and focus the mind, improve flexibility, massage internal organs, help to balance the body, raise vitality, release endorphins, remove toxins and encourage you to” go with the flow

The following version of a Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutation) is a great starting point.  

Begin in Tadasana (the mountain), stand with a straight spine and a small space between the insides of your feet with the outside edges of your feet parallel.  Begin to breathe slowly in and out through your nose.  

When you are ready fully inhale as you exhale bring your hands to a prayer position in front of your chest.

Inhale and lift your hands above your head allowing your hands to part so they are shoulder width apart with your palms facing forward, activate your lower abdominal muscles (to protect the lower back) and lift your breast bone, drop your head back and allow your hips to move forward.  (This movement provides a stretch for the digestive system).

Exhale and fold your body into Uttanasana (standing forward bend).  Make sure you engage the lower abdominal muscles as you fold forwards, your arms take the natural path down until your fingertips touch the floor or they just hang alongside your legs.

Inhale and step your right leg back as far as possible whilst bending your left knee, to form a long lunge and place your hands onto the floor.  Make sure that your left knee is over your left ankle (to protect the knee).  

Exhale and move to Adho Mukha Svanasana (downward facing dog).  Step the left foot back so it is beside the right, allow your hips to move up and back to create a triangular shape with your body and the floor.  

Inhale and move to Plank by moving your shoulders forward and lowering your hips to form a straight line between your shoulders and your heels.  Make sure that you brace the abdominal muscles as you move through this transition to protect your lower back. 

As you exhale lower knees, chest and chin to the floor whilst the hips remain lifted.

Inhale and move to Urdhva mukha svanasana (upward facing dog).  Slide your chest forward, lower your hips and slowly straighten your arms lifting your shoulders and torso from the floor.

Exhale and activate the lower abdominal muscles firmly as you move back to adho mukha svanasana (downward facing dog).

Inhale and step the right foot forwards to form a long lunge.  This time the left leg is extended.

Exhale and step your left foot beside your right, straighten your legs and relax your upper body into uttanasana (standing forward bend).

Inhale and slowly uncurl whilst lifting the arms keeping them parallel.  When the hands are above the shoulders, lift the breast bone, drop your head back and draw up the lower abdominal muscles as you allow the hips to move forward.

Exhale as lower your arms in front of your body keeping them parallel and returning to tadasana (the mountain).

Repeat all of the above stepping back with the left leg.  Continue working both sides equally for at least 5 complete rounds and then gradually increase the amount of repetitions.

Variation.  If you are not comfortable passing through plank from adho mukha svanasana (downward facing dog).  Replace the plank with majaryasana (cat), on the exhalation create a convex shape with the spine as you inhale reverse the movement concaving the spine and then pick up the second downward facing dog and continue with the rest of the sequence.

Breathing for a Calmer Christmas
For many the build up to the festive season brings a degree of stress and anxiety. Here is a simple breathing exercise that can be used anytime.
 
Breathe slowly through your nose, as you do so take your time to lengthen each breath a little.  Slowly bring your attention to the natural pause at the end of each inhalation and exhalation. Spend a moment acknowledging these pauses.  Now slowly work to increase the length of each exhalation and allow each one to gently soften any tension.  Continue with this technique for as long as necessary.
 
How does this technique work?
Each time we exhale the parasympathetic nervous system is stimulated. It is this part of the nervous system that lowers blood pressure and heart rate promoting relaxation.

WellbeingWorldOnline Q&A Q & A.

Q. What is Satyananda yoga?

A. Satyananda Yoga is an integral and holistic approach to life.  Satyananda Yoga endeavours to offer the individual a step by step, practical and comprehensive approach to modern life. It provides a coherent philosophy of life without postulating any religious or political beliefs and provides everyone, regardless of their social background, with tools for health, peace of mind and an inspired vision for their lives. People who practice Satyananda Yoga are of all ages, levels of fitness and come from many walks of life.

Q. How does Satyananda yoga work?

A. Satyananda Yoga draws on a number of traditional systems of yoga, including Hatha, Raja, Karma, Jnana, Mantra and Bhakti Yoga, and the Tantric tradition in general, with practices that are able to accommodate individual needs.

Satyananda Yoga incorporates an awareness of all aspects of being, promoting the alignment of the delicate balance between body, mind, emotions and spirit. Through awakening the individual's awareness and inherent self-healing powers, physical disease and mental stress can be managed and relieved. By steadying the emotions and calming the mind, a sense of perspective can be gained, bringing a feeling of peace, freedom and inner strength.

Special Offer. If you would like to bring a different perspective to your yoga practice we are offering 20% off our range of Satyananda Yoga MP3’s. Please enter the code SY20 at the checkout. Offer ends at midnight on Sun 11th August. Learn more and listen to free samples.

Q & A.

Q. I am suffering from insomnia can you recommend any yoga postures or techniques that might help me achieve a night of quality sleep? 

A. There are a number of specific things you can do to increase your chances of getting a better night’s sleep. Firstly, practicing a well balanced yoga class on a regular basis will generally relax and calm both body and mind. For those with sleep problems I recommend a yoga practice at the end of the day which contains only very gentle, slow mowing seated or laying postures to really increase the calming effects yoga offers.  Faster moving techniques such as sun salutations and many of the standing postures will stimulate the body and would be more beneficial for you first thing in the morning not at the end of the day.

Yoga pranayamas, or breathing exercises can also be very effective for insomnia sufferers. I recommend performing the following simple breathing technique whilst lying in bed to help calm the mind and deeply relax the body. 

Lightly close your eyes, relax all of your facial muscles and breathe very slowly in and out through your nose. Place your hands lightly onto your stomach between your belly button and your sternum, as you breathe in you should feel this area rising and then falling as you exhale. Continue to breathe slowly filling the whole of your lungs with air, work to lengthen each exhalation and as you do so relax and soften your whole body into the bed. As you continue to breathe slowly through your nose, really focus on your breath entering and leaving your body and feel yourself relaxing and sinking down into your bed.  If your mind begins to wander really focus on the sound of your breath. Continue like this. 

The Yoga 2 Hear Relaxations for Sleep Vol.1 Download and CD contains two different 28 minute guided relaxation sessions created just for those who have difficulties getting to sleep or who wake during the night and just can’t get back to sleep again. Each session uses a different combination of breathing and visualization techniques that clear your mind and induce deep relaxation allowing you to drift off into a fantastic sleep and wake feeling calm, refreshed and revitalized. Learn more and listen to free samples.

We also have a great selection of other relaxation sessions.

Q & A. 

Q. I suffer from high blood pressure and wonder if there is anything that I should avoid when practicing yoga?

A. Firstly I highly recommend taking specific medical advice, after that there are a number of points to consider during your yoga practice to ensure it is safe. Avoid postures where the hands are held above the head for any length of time, also avoid taking the head lower than the heart and do not practice breath retentions when performing yoga pranayamas (breathing exercises). 

Here are a few tips to make your practice safe and effective.

1. When postures require the arms to be held above the head you can lower your arms and position the hands beside the hips instead.

2. Replace downward facing dog with cat.

3. Replace a standing forward bend with a seated forward bend or position yourself in front of a wall with your hands at shoulder height.  Rest your hands on the wall and slowly walk your feet back, as you do so start to pivot from the hips as you slowly lower the hands and stretch the spine.  Stop when you create a right angle with your torso and your legs.  Do not allow the head to go lower than the heart.

4. In pose of a child place a folded towel or yoga bolster under your forehead so that the head remains above the heart.

5. Instead of performing inversions it is possible to rest flat on your back with your legs extended up a wall.

Yoga is proven to relieve stress and stress is a major factor in blood pressure levels, so it makes sense that by performing regular and appropriate yoga postures stress will be reduced and this will help to balance blood pressure. Regular yoga will also have a positive effect on general health and wellbeing.

Relaxation and Meditation are also fantastic stress busters. Our Gentle Daily Yoga and Yoga in a Chair classes are ideal for sufferers of high blood pressure as are all of the Wellbeing World Relaxation and Meditation classes.

Q & A.

Do you have any questions for our Experts? Here's a recent Yoga related question sent to our Yoga expert Sue Fuller that you may find interesting.

Q. I would love to try yoga but feel I’m not flexible enough. What can I do? 

A. Quite often potential yoga students ask this question and I tell them that it’s a myth, you just don’t need to be flexible to practice and benefit from yoga. The fantastic thing about yoga is that it really is suitable for everyone. Yoga practices include sitting in a comfortable position with a straight spine and breathing slowly to the more advanced and almost gymnastic postures. There are so many benefits to be gained that it would be a real shame to not try a class because you are worried about how flexible you are.  

It is important that as a beginner you select a class that is of a suitable and appropriate level, the postures just don’t have to be advanced to be effective. By using and repeating simple postures you can work to focus your attention to the finer details of that posture and then find a little mental stillness within. Once a firm foundation is established you will find that stronger postures that perhaps require more flexibility are more achievable naturally with little effort. Many advanced practitioners would tell you that there is a lot to be gained from them revisiting basic postures to remind them of correct alignment and technique. 

Make sure that during the class you are aware of how your body feels and never use force to move your body into any postures or stretches.  I recommend that when possible you close your eyes to minimise distraction and to help you tune into the sensations that you are experiencing as you move through your practice.   

It is important to remember that everybody is built differently and therefore we all have different levels of flexibility.  It does not mean that someone who is more flexible than you is benefiting more from the class than you are.  When moving through your yoga postures remember to breathe slowly in and out through the nose.  Muscles relax as you exhale so it is possible to use every exhalation to soften and release tension stored within the body.  Always take your time and never rush your breathing or your movements.  With a regular yoga practice your flexibility will naturally improve and you can also help to calm and still the mind, reduce stress and tension and improve general levels of health and vitality. And remember you will benefit immensely from simple postures that are performed correctly – there is no rush. 

One of my dear friends is an amazing singer but struggles with hamstring flexibility, her flexibility is in her voice not her legs! We are all different with different strengths outside of the yoga studio.  We have to work safely with what we have and enjoy the experience. 

If you have any questions for our Experts please contact us. Our experts will answer your questions and we would only add it to a newsletter with your consent.
