Your Health is your Wealth

Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, not merely the absence of disease or infirmity, according to World Health Organization (WHO). Indeed, health is wealth. Every now and then, it is important to remind ourselves that we need to take good care of ourselves. There is a reason to stay healthy. Being healthy can decrease developing medical conditions.

As the WHO defines health, remaining healthy means a holistic well-being. Caring for our minds is as important and crucial as caring for our bodies. One cannot be healthy without the other.

For this 2018, let us love ourselves more by considering these tips:

  • Visit your GP, eye doctor and dentist for regular check-ups
  • Be faithful in taking your medicines and also drink vitamins
  • Protect your skin especially from the sun
  • Exercise regularly
  • Eat healthy
  • Drink more water and fewer sugary drinks
  • Get enough sleep
  • Practice safe sex
  • Don’t smoke, limit alcohol intake and avoid drugs
  • Wash your hands – viruses are spread through contact
  • Practice self-care (no need to feel guilty)
  • Love yourself more and others too
  • Be friendly and be kind
  • Listen to others
  • Talk and share your feelings
  • Say “I love you,” “Thank you,” “Please” more often
  • Have fun – relax and rest
  • Call a friend
  • Learn something a new
  • Balance your time between work and play
  • Count your blessings and be grateful
  • Ask for help when needed

Ascension Yoga Healing

Ascension Yoga Healing is a new-age healing yoga. It is a rising up, a rising ‘within’ to meet our higher selves, it is an energetic cellular clearing as we move through this time of Ascension. We have shifted from 3D to higher dimensions which is creating stress in our bodies.

This is a healing practice to work through the affects the Ascension Process has on the physical, emotional and mental bodies.

As new incoming energies move through us and release old pain from many lifetimes it is affecting us in these human bodies.

As old energy / toxins rise up to move out they can get stuck and we need to work on releasing them gently. New Energy can become stuck as our current physical body is not able to process this high vibration energy immediately. Overwhelming emotions, mental issues and physical discomforts are arising due to all these factors.

Ascension Yoga Healing is a new yoga way for an evolving new us!

Yoga suitable to all

Kinesio-taping – why you need this in your life!

So you may be wondering, ‘what is this Kinesio-taping thing all about’?

 

Well, put in simple terms, Kinesio-taping is the application of a specific form of tape/sports tape in order to facilitate the body’s natural healing process, providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion.

 

The tape is applied to the skin by a specifically trained therapist, usually in conjunction with another therapy, massage for example.

The beauty of Kinesio-tape is it’s versatility. It is safe for all ages and can be left on the skin for several days.

It can be applied to enhance your Lymphatic Drainage treatment, whether you are having MLD (Manual Lymph Drainage) for treatment of Lymphedema, sports injuries or swollen ankles during pregnancy.

It’s also very beneficial for treating repetitive strain injuries, in conjunction with deep tissue massage.

And for pain management it can provide instant relief in many cases, a wonderful alternative to pain killers and anti-inflammatories (where appropriate).

 

As a therapist with many years experience in massage, MLD, yoga and nutrition, I am always learning and adding to my skill-set in order to provide the very best care for my clients. So it is my pleasure to be able to add this very effective technique to the list. On a case-by-case basis I can asses which combination of the above therapies is most suitable for your injury/ongoing issue.

 

All too often we ignore our aches and pains because we can’t quite put our finger on the cause, or indeed the most suitable solution. Ignoring the problem won’t make it go away!

 

Come and see me so we can talk about your treatment options. Call reception on 01 8310888

Say Hello to Joanita

Hi everyone! My name is Joanita. I am honoured to be your Certified Yoga Teacher!

As a Yogi, I am a seeker! I was attracted to yoga because a lot of things in the world didn’t make sense and yoga has always brought peace, calmness in me and above all it unites my mind and my body. Practicing Hatha yoga is really there to prepare the body and mind for the bigger work in life. My practice keeps my body in good health (now it’s like a fit vehicle ready for purpose).

My every day practice also helps me engage with my breath and feel the energy of life as it unfolds in each moment, on and off my mat.Everything is perfect as it is, there is no need to change anything and this is a big challenge. Rising to this challenge opens up to the promise of yoga – let it go and live life in the present moment, grounding in my natural state of being and with the world around me.

I am a proud mother of three beautiful children and as a qualified yoga teacher I am committed to my daily practice so that my teaching is always up to date. Education through yoga is caring for the development of our entire own being.

My class on Thursday morning will focus on alignment and maintaining good posture, with each class ending with a deep relaxation. Stretching will be subtle and effective while finding comfort in building strength and flexibility. If you are new to yoga or the idea of a gentle yoga class appeals to you, you have found your style!

The Benefits of Post Natal Yoga

Many women when pregnant attend a pregnancy yoga class: to keep toned, to stay flexible, to prepare their bodies for labour and birth, and also to meet other mums in their area. But once the baby is born it can be easy to lose the connection with other new mums, and feel disheartened about the physical and emotional effects childbirth can have on your body.

 

Postnatal yoga uses movement, balance and relaxation to allow your body to recover from pregnancy and birth. It helps to heal the body and mind, and repair all the tissues back to their former glory. It is designed for mums with their babies and so incorporates the little ones into the practice, either using yoga asanas to keep the babies entertained, or holding the babies as part of the yoga itself.

The class is designed to nurture new mums and provide a safe environment for them to heal and repair their bodies, to talk about their experiences of birth and as a new mum, and safely allow them to reconnect with their bodies – without their former passenger!
