Recently I've been exploring the cause and effects of Sacroiliac joint dysfunction, and postural instability causing pain/discomfort in the long term. Since teaching yoga I've seen many participants suffer with “lower back” or “hip” pain, which upon further investigation has revealed aggravation in the SI joint.
Those of you who have attended my yoga classes will know I prefer to have music playing in the background, arranged to complement the energy level of the class. I've found that background music also adds a sensory element to help anchor the 'monkey mind'. Many have queried the tracks, so I've compiled three of my yoga playlists in Spotify.
Instead of setting goals at the start of each year, I prefer to choose a word (or three) to be my theme for the year. I can then revisit at regular intervals throughout the year to ensure my actions and intentions are aligned with this theme. This year, my main focus word has been “EASE”.
