Guru of Unconditional STRENGTH & STILLNESS

  ‘Gu’ Darkness to Ru ‘Lightness’ If the nervous system is fresh and rested, the body will be healthy and the mind alert and comprehensive. This in turn is influenced by a host of factors hereditary, diet, environment and so on. Conversely if the system is tired or strained, perhaps because of overactivity, or the influence of poor food, then our outlook will be restricted, the mind dull, and our actions ineffective. Our lives will become shallow and unsatisfying, a magnet to all forms of negativity. Techniques of relaxation, meditation, gentle intuned fitness and yoga are methods of purifying the nervous system so that it can reflect a greater degree of consciousness and our lives can become an increasingly positive force in the world. Dedication to serving up self care motivation, thus the whole of the nervous system is to receive unconditional revitalisation. The body enjoys better health, more energy. The rested mind being freed from the burden of past experience, and perception is restored to its freshness. Thought and activity must be led on …

Reclaiming the feminine flower

So often lacking in Western culture, the awareness of the creative power the female body holds. Let’s take a deeper look at why practicing with finding your femininity around the sacrum produces such profound effects. The pelvic floor is a large group of muscles that form a “basket” or a diaphragm which supports all of our internal organs. In eastern practices like Yoga, Tai Chi and Qigong, there is a big emphasis put on pelvic floor exercises. It is said that life force, prana, or chi can leak through the pelvic floor and be lost if those muscles are weak. This life force energy is essential for maintaining high energy levels and longevity. In the modern world of desk jobs, we sit still for long periods of time, and at best work out at the gym a few times a week. Most of us pretty much never engage the pelvic floor muscles. This leads to reproductive health problems, painful periods, loss of sensitivity and sensation, and overall low energy levels. It is researched and reported that …

The Sacrum: The window to health

Learning about chakras the energy that runs from the base of the spine to the top of the  head is something I delve into when discussing the sacral region and planning sacral health within the sacral method programme. Within this space I delve deep into the sacral chakra and give headway to whether your chakra it′s functioning correctly or if it′s in need of a tune-up to bring it back into alignment? 1) Where is the Sacral Chakra? The sacral chakra is the second chakra. It′s found behind your pubic bone, immediately above the root chakra and below the solar plexus chakra. It′s called the sacral chakra, because it corresponds to the sacrum in the spine. It resonates with the music note of D. It′s possible to experience many indications in your physical, mental, or emotional state when this chakra is out of balance. For example, mood swings, lack of joy, feeling unfulfilled with your life, trouble relating to others, low self-esteem, and a lack of creativity are some of the symptoms you might experience. Physically, …

Awakening the Spirit of the Spine

The spine is the axis of our being The embryo in the womb first creates the central spinal axis and then the body grows around this axis, the axis of our individual world. The top and bottom of the body, the two sides and the back and front of the body develop soon after. We then spend the rest of our life with our spine “behind” us. We face the world and all of life moves from back to front, from the spine into the world. The physical spine is one of the primary supporting structures for our body and mind. It is also the basis of our individual consciousness as the spinal cord where the nerve cells within the spine carry all those nerve signals that are required to sustain our waking, dreaming and sleeping states of being. To awaken the spine what should/can we minimally do every day to keep our spine as strong, flexible and healthy as possible? Flexibility postures and stretch technique partnered with pranayama (breath control) create a strong and …

The elixir of abundant restful sleep

Sleep is the nursemaid to humanity   During sleep, our body repairs and rejuvenates itself. A lack of restful sleep disrupts the body’s innate balance, weakens our immune system, and speeds up the aging process. Human beings generally need between six and eight hours of restful sleep each night. Restful sleep means that you’re not using pharmaceuticals or alcohol to get to sleep but that you’re drifting off easily once you turn off the light and are sleeping soundly through the night. If you feel energetic and vibrant when you wake up, you had a night of restful sleep. If you feel tired and unenthusiastic, you haven’t had restful sleep. Restful sleep is the foundation for your mental and physical well-being. After a day of stimulating activity, your body needs deep sleep when your mind and body can rest and reset. When you’re well rested you’re more alert, able to process new information more efficiently, and you make better decisions. On the other hand, when you’re sleep deprived, you’re more likely to make mistakes and …

The womens health taboo

Urinary incontinence is a common problem in women, where pregnancy or the postnatal period may be the first time many women experience urinary incontinence. About a third of women leak urine and up to a 10th of women leak stool (faeces) after giving birth   Stress (having the symptom of involuntary urine leakage with physical exertion) and urgency (symptom of involuntary leakage associated with, or immediately following, a sudden compelling need to void) urinary incontinence are the two most common types of urine leakage in women. Many women have symptoms of both stress and urgency urinary incontinence; being identified as ‘mixed’ urinary incontinence. Of these types, stress urinary incontinence is most commonly associated with pregnancy and the postnatal period. Factors known to be associated with a greater risk of postpartum incontinence include vaginal delivery (in the short term); previous urinary incontinence; and heredity including anatomical and physiological factors such as pelvic anatomy and connective tissue structure A wide range of treatments and therapies are being used in the treatment of urinary and faecal incontinence, including …
