We are now into lockdown 4. Didn’t realise there was a lockdown until I went to Coles at about 5pm Friday. The traffic was “end of the world” kind of traffic! The last parking spot was mine… No toilet paper, no potatoes, no onions, no bread…. etc etc I didn’t need or want any of those and bought the last bag of baby carrots, and the last fennel so all is well here. I can exist from what I have now for a very long time, so if it is extended it makes no difference to me. I hope and pray that you are the same.
THE NEWSLETTER: I promised that during lockdown it would come out each day. We are in lockdown, so I will send out a newsletter each day.
STUDIO CLASSES. It seems that other yoga centres are closing…So we are back to ZOOMING. Monday at 1pm and Wednesday at 5.30pm. All our other classes are zoom so there is no change there. Please have on hand all your own props. towels etc as usual. If you have weights (waits) and bands, please bring them to the zoom class. Although this is supposed to end on Wednesday, it may not?.
I urge you to book in for THE BREATH WORKSHOP. Next Saturday the 20th at 10am. It was never more important than it is now. Breathing naturally boosts the immune system, and this is needed. We have learned to clean up the oceans, the skies, and get solar powered, we have tamed many of the bugs that killed our ancestors. On average we live three times as long as people in the Industrial age in Britain – HOWEVER, we have lost touch with our most basic and important biological function. THE BREATH.
You may follow the food guide pyramid, you may get heaps of outdoor exercise, get vaccinated, take all your supplements, however, you may still suffer breathing difficulties and resistance, and your immune system could be “stuffed” to use an Australian term. Is this leaving you wide open to this new bug? The new strain (or any strain) of covid? A RESOUNDING “YES” is the answer to that question.
To gain focus in body and clarity of mind, you need to BREATHE PROPERLY. The nose is the silent warrior, the gatekeeper of your body, pharmacist to your mind and weather vane of your emotions. In a single breath, more molecules will pass through your nose than all the grains of sand on the world’s beaches – trillions and trillions.
The mucus membranes of the nose filter out pollutants and particles. The invaders as we know cause infections if they get into the lungs. The mucus is the body’s first line of defence. It has been likened to a giant conveyor belt (pushed along by hair like structures called cillia), collecting inhaled muck which it moves down into the throat and to the stomach, where it is sterilised by stomach acid, delivered to the intestines and sent out of your body.
We have a second brain, the gut. What you may not know is we have a second heart. The diaphragm. It not only beats to its own rhythm, it also affects the rhythm, rate and strength of the heart beat. Some people use only about 10% of the capacity of the diaphragm.You can survive on short shallow breaths, and most people do. This does not mean it is good for you!
CORRECT BREATHING STRENGTHENS THE MIND, THE BODY, AND THE SPIRIT. IT HAS NEVER BEEN MORE IMPORTANT.
