Christmas time is here and you already know the drill. It s supposed to be fun, it s supposed to be a moment to rest, for reminiscing, of gratitude and happy times together with loved ones. You re supposed to be generous and show your love with gifts. Some people even manage to make it so. But for most, this period of gift shopping in Berlin ends up being such a stressful marathon of accumulating more stuff than needed, of frantically getting everything ready for Christmas day… and at the end of it all …one ends up needing a vacation from the vacation!
For those of you following this tradition: December is stressful. Yoga classes will help you get through this month, and who knows?… maybe even enjoy it. Our yoga school in Berlin Kreuzberg will only close between the 23rd to the 28th of December. Make sure to give yourself the gift of yoga during this cold dark month. Gentle movement, gentle breathing, deep relaxation are the yoga benefits that will make all the difference.
And if you are in need of a present, you can always purchase a 5er card online or at the English Yoga Berlin studio for your loved ones this Christmas. You wouldn’t be giving them yet another material present to cramp up their home… but five yoga classes full of tools for a healthier life, for staying in the present moment, for meditation, and for deep relaxation!
As yoga teachers, we see a lot of stressed out people, and we have the privilege of watching the profound transformation that can be brought about by an hour or two of practicing yoga. People leave our Berlin yoga classes with brighter eyes, straighter posture, deeper breathing, an easy smile and a calm, clear mind. Guiding people through this transformation is one the best things about teaching Yoga.
One of our goals, as teachers, is to offer students tools that they can use throughout their daily lives–not just in classes or on the yoga mat. We believe that intentional relaxation tools can be learned in classes and then practiced regularly at home, to the great benefit of the practitioners and everyone around them! Once we have learned the skills, we need to practice them, just like a new language or musical instrument. The more we practice, the easier it gets, and the more you practice intentional relaxation techniques, the more you will notice subtle but powerful changes in your everyday life and in your body.
To this end, we have developed an online library of audio recordings that you can use in the privacy of your own home, to practice your intentional relaxation skills. The recordings are taped copies of 20 minute relaxation sessions that we give at the end of our English-language yoga classes in Berlin. Each recording consists of a short introduction, a progressive relaxation exercise, a visualization exercise and some aural stimuli. Every recording is different and they are all the products of our own creative processes, dreams, lives and yoga practices. They are anti-copyrighted: you are welcome to share them, but please do not make money off of them—a lot of personal energy and time has gone into each visualization and we’d like to keep them separate from the money economy!
The first page contains 5 free recordings and is available to everyone online, free of charge.
After that, if you are interested to have more, send us an email and we’ll send you the password to the password-protected page, where you can access the entire library. If you are a regular English Yoga Berlin student, then you are automatically entitled to access the library: listen out for the monthly password after your next class!
