Amazing research into how we can really give ourselves a lift in mood and motivation and energy and feel so much more in the right mood to move on with our life.

Microbiome of the gut is essential to well-being. It must be diverse and of multiple strains and in plenty supply. Those of you suffering daily with IBS, general low feelings, tummy upsets and digestive unrest are especially and quickly improved with the correct dosage of the correct pro/pre biotic.

This might sound like “what??” to you – please feel free to give me a ring or email for more explanation and direction.

It seems too from ongoing research around the world that gut “flora” is affecting many health conditions we want to improve. I have myself been using probiotics for around thirty years, not being able to tolerate anti-biotics. I wouldn’t be without. And so the gut-brain axis as we can acknowledge this connection now – is becoming an important and deeply interesting really does affect your mood. Lifts the senses from feeling “low”. Are you affected? Do you feel interested in learning more? Having this tailored to your system is so important. Your system is unique.

Let us remind ourselves why we love YOGA!

It has us smile! Yes indeed. A smile that pervades the whole Being. It works to release tension. The physical body relaxes as it stretches and becomes supple. Regular yoga practice will reduce back pain. Chronic back pain will find relief. It has been noted in studies that blood pressure can lower. Heart rates come to settle into better rhythm. If too fast, it will slow, and if too slow it will normalise. Restless leg syndrome symptoms diminish. If we suffer from anxiety or depression or a sense of loneliness, these moods will improve. Yoga usually boosts mood. And, it does mean if done with thoughtfulness, we are living absolutely in the NOW. Not worrying about the future or regretting the past.

Breathing techniques pull the body and mind together in a positive fashion. Calmness descends and a sense of purpose results. Good feeling endorphins result with a happy yoga session. Muscles strengthen and lengthen. Balance becomes steady, which reduces the concern of falling. Posture improves dramatically which supports good breathing and a smooth supply of life affirming oxygen. Stiffness in the joints gradually reduces and all in all, we feel so much better, optimistic, motivated, settled, relaxed and yet energised. And sleep? Oh yes, we sleep soundly!

Just a few of the reasons we LOVE yoga!
