Mindfulness

Mindfulness

Mindfulness teaches us how to meet our thoughts, feelings and emotions, while cultivating kindness, patience and compassion, how to be present in each moment of our lives and how to embrace all aspects of life; however challenging, however rough.

Through the practice of mindful awareness we learn that anger, panic, sadness and fear, like other difficult emotions that we tend to deny, suppress or shut off, are a natural part of life. In mindfulness the real antidote to the discomfort, fear and uncertainty is to meet it rather than turn away from it.

Breathing and Meditation

The practice of meditation improves concentration, promotes patience, courage and allows us to stay centred and focused while navigating through the challenges of life. Breathing exercises enhance the physical yoga practice and facilitate meditation.

Both, breathing and meditation practices:

  • enhance ability to focus and to maintain concentration
  • help to alter the mood by learning how to use calming and tranquilising techniques in stressful situations, and energising breathing exercises to help restore strength, focus and concentration
  • help to regulate erratic breathing that is linked to stress, anxiety and panic attacks
  • help to deal with physical or emotional pain or discomfort

Restorative Yoga

Relaxation, Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra

Relaxation is a practical skill and like any other skill it can be learnt.

Relaxation techniques contribute greatly to the regulation of the heart rate, blood pressure, digestion and respiration and enhanced immune function in the body, allowing the body to heal and repair itself.  On a deeper, mental and emotional level, relaxation alleviates stress and helps us to deal more effectively with our responsibilities and with the challenges of our lives.

Restorative yoga is a practice of relaxation in a variety of yoga postures with the use of props like cushions, bolsters and blankets to support the body in order to facilitate deep relaxation and deep rest. Regular practice of relaxation can release chronic tension and relieve anxiety helping to cope with stress, discomfort, tiredness or pain.

Yoga Nidra is an ancient practice known as “deep yogic sleep”. This structured and verbally guided relaxation offers an opportunity to release muscular, emotional and mental tension, distressing thoughts, feelings and memories as well as the whole burden that modern life, work, bereavement, or any other life-changing illness or predicament can bring.

Restorative Yoga

Yoga for People Affected by Cancer

Yoga can give us the strength and insight we need to navigate the most radical forms of change that illness can bring upon us. Mindfulness teaches us how to cope. In combination, teachings of both traditions help to renew connection with the body and restore confidence and inner strength.

Through the practice of yoga and mindfulness we learn how to reach to the toolbox of available practices when facing fear, being overwhelmed, waiting for the diagnosis or awaiting surgery.

In THE YOGA PROJECT we offer practical breathing exercises, meditation techniques, gentle movement, Yoga Nidra, restorative yoga and relaxation techniques to help cancer patients and their carers to deal with sleeplessness, fear, pain and confusion that a life-threatening illness can bring.

Thanks to the dedicated training with the British Wheel of Yoga, and Lynda Jackson Macmillan Centre, as well as the knowledge and experience of the transformational power of yoga, Marta offers yoga classes that are gentle and kind to the body as well as soothing, yet strengthening, for the fragile emotional and mental state of being for people at all stages of illness – from the diagnosis through to treatment.

Yoga for Addiction Recovery

In the heart of yoga lies the pursuit of balance and practice of mind control. Recovery from any addictive or compulsive behaviour shares the same aims as yoga: a quest for self-control, discipline and strength.

Yoga practices aim to calm the mind and help to gain control over it, they improve concentration, promote patience, courage and the strength to face reality.

A well designed, gentle and focused physical yoga practice brings steadiness to the mind and helps to detoxify the body and its system and organs that are most often affected by abuse. Through breathing exercises the heart and lungs begin to work more efficiently.

Relaxation and Yoga Nidra help to manage anxiety and through the use of intention and visualisation they allow us to create new and healthier mind patterns.

Meditation contributes to a greater sense of control when experiencing cravings, insomnia, agitation or panic reactions, whereas the practice of mindfulness helps to restore connection with the ourselves and the world around us.
