Here in the UK September is National Yoga Awareness month!
Yoga is a fantastic way help mobilise and stretch your mind and body. You don't need to have a hour or more per day to practice (although that would be amazing if you did!) - just 10 or 15 minutes a day can do wonders for moving your body and slowing down your mind. Whether you are completely new to Yoga or have been practicing for years creating space and time each day will gently strengthen your body and calm your mind. I always try to fit it in first thing in the morning, after making coffee, feeding the cats but before my kids start arguing!
I have been teaching Yoga for over 12 years and practicing for over 20. I wanted to create a Yoga retreat in a box style Yoga gift box that you could treat yourself with or a friend. This Yoga gift box would allow you to experience the amazing sense of wellbeing that you get from a Yoga retreat but in your own home if you are unable to go to a retreat.
If you are looking to treat yourself or a friend to Yoga gift, my Chakra Boxes are a great place to start. They are Yoga gift boxes that I have designed as a Yoga retreat, you have access to two exclusive videos per box. A Yoga flow suitable for beginners onwards and a Guided Meditation video, which uses a simple breath pattern to help you quieten and calm your mind. Then there is an essential oil candle, a notebook that you can use to journal your thoughts after your sessions, or maybe just to write shopping lists plus herbal teas and luxury bath salts or body scrubs. Also in the Yoga gift box, and available to buy separately, are my Mala beads, power bracelets. These Mala beads are made from beautiful gemstones that you can use in your meditation sessions (the Guided Meditation videos show you how to) or just as a reminder to pause and breathe during your day, maybe while having a cup of tea.
