I love yoga, not only because it helps me stay healthy, but mostly because it helps me take a breath from my crazy life. Moments to yourself are rare, and we very don’t stop to think about ourselves enough. We know it’s important to make ‘me’ time, but it’s so hard to do without feeling guilty. For me, my time on the mat is an excuse to switch off my brain and focus on nothing but me and my body. So last weekend when I went on a yoga retreat I could not of been happier. I certainly wasn’t the best at the postures and I still get my left and right confused, however taking a whole weekend to focus on me was amazing.
One of my favourite things from the classes (other than the fantastic teaching) was the lavender eye pillows that we were given at the end of each session. Such a gorgeous way to help unwind in Shavasana and it really made the made the experience that little more relaxing, and feel that much more of a treat.
Well, I had to make some as soon as I got home, and as soon as I told my friend she wanted one too! They will be perfect addition to my stall and to my own practice at home.
Now, everyone all together this time …. Om
