Do you ever feel like your mind is spinning and your energy is scattered? Perhaps you find it hard to focus and concentrate on one thing at a time. You feel restless. Your attention span seems to be getting shorter and shorter, and more than anything you just feel… ‘busy’.
If this sounds familiar you are not alone – but the good news is that yoga can help!
Overstimulation – living in a fast-paced world
Much of this restless, scattered feeling is to do with how overstimulated we are by technology, ‘too much’ choice, and blurred boundaries between work and free time. When we are in this distracted, disorganised mental state we are always ‘on alert’ and our stress responses are activated. Our energy systems become disorganised, our minds jump from one thing to the next and we feel this restlessness in our body too.
There are things we can do to reduce this information overload but unless we decide to take ourselves completely off-grid, it will always be there to a degree – and of course, not all of this technology and choice is negative! It’s a far better long-term solution for us to learn how to make the most of the opportunities it brings while staying present, focused and connected to ourselves and those around us.
So I’d like to invite you to join me for my Yin yoga program, where you will learn how to organise your energy system and your thoughts to bring more focus, clarity and peace into your life.
Available to all EkhartYoga members.
New to EkhartYoga? You can follow the program for free during your two-week trial.
This two-week program includes 3 Yin yoga classes a week. During these classes, you will work to reorganise your energy system through different focus points:
- The breath,
- Sensations in the body,
- Support from the earth,
- Being with emotions,
- The space between thoughts, and
- Resting as awareness.
The classes build on each other, so the challenge to stay focused grows as we progress from focusing our attention on the breath through to our thoughts but with practice, you will develop the skills to do so. Learning these techniques while in Yin yoga poses adds an extra element to help you bring your focus from your head to your body.
When you organise your energy system your mind calms down and your concentration and focus improve. Once you are able to focus and declutter your mind, peace and relaxation is the result.
I’ve been using the practices that I share in this program over the past few years and I’ve noticed such a positive change in my concentration, focus, willpower, mental strength, and a general sense of calmness.
I hope you can join me so you can experience the same.
