How to find your flow when you are feeling ‘meh’

Gentle Spirit Yoga - butterfly

Have you been feeling stuck? Do you need to find your flow?

I was reading an article recently from Beyond Blue that really resonated with me. I have been feeling ‘meh’ off and on for sometime now. I watch as the world seems to be getting on with things but I somehow feel disconnected, I feel ‘meh.’ Not good, not bad. Not up, not down. I would describe it as feeling a little lost. The actual technical term for the feeling is languishing. It’s the feeling of being stuck or empty, in limbo.

Overcoming Resistance

Gentle Spirit Yoga blog overcoming resistance

Our resistance to ‘what is’ is what keeps us trapped in the never-ending cycle of our pain body and can create suffering. Recognising and overcoming resistance is key. Resistance is the reason that we keep re-living and going over our old restrictive behaviour and patterns. Resistance is when we don’t want something to be as it is. We want the situation or outcome to be different to the one we are experiencing. So we physically and or mentally create resistance within our body and mind. Continue Reading →

Create The Life You Want

Gentle Spirit Yoga

How do you create the life you want when it seems the whole world is rallying for your attention?

Have you noticed how so many emails, text and advertising (just to name a few) are marked urgent and in need our immediate attention? Advertising plays on our fear of missing out so we feel compelled to engage. Fear of missing out, also extends to other areas of our life. Continue Reading →

Gentle Yoga Classes Bendigo

Welcome beautiful soul,

Sometimes the most productive thing we can do is relax and surrender and allow life to unfold. It is admirable to be there for others, but not at the expense of ignoring our own needs and wants. As the saying goes, ‘you can’t give from an empty cup’. Taking time out for ourselves often brings everything into perspective. Yoga focuses the mind and invites us to wake up from within. Every conscious action and breath is yoga. It’s not what we go through in life but how we respond that makes the difference in awakening peace within our heart. Yoga is both the means and the path. We learn through practice on the mat how to navigate our best life off the mat. It begins with kindness, love, acceptance as well as forgiveness for everything we thought we should or shouldn’t do or be. And the place to begin is right here now.

Let go and open your heart. Happy, content people build their inner world. Prioritise happiness. Be kind to yourself and then allow that kindness to flood the world. Look within, for you are the peace that you have been seeking.

And I am honoured to be a part of your journey.

Love & blessings, Gwynn

The meaning of Namaste

Gentle Spirit Yoga The Meaning of Namaste Quote ~ The divine in me honours the divine in you

As our yoga class comes to an end, we sit together silently with our eyes closed and bring our hands to our heart in prayer position (Anjali mudra). As I recite my favourite interpretation of Namaste, I feel moved by the meaning behind the spoken words. Together, we gently bow our head as we allow ‘Namaste’ to softly pass through our lips. I am so deeply moved by its divinity a lump forms in my throat and I have goose bumps on my arms. Such is the power of ‘Namaste.’

The meaning of Om

Gentle Spirit Yoga Quote - There's no place like Om

‘Om’ is our connection with the Divine!

To define the meaning of Om is like trying to explain all of existence. ‘Om’ is as elusive in its meaning as it is as powerful in its vibration and divinity. As ‘Om’ is our connection to all things as it is the sound vibration of the Universe. It is said that ‘Om’ can be heard in outer space and that everything comes from the sound vibration of ‘Om’ and goes back to that place. Continue Reading →
