Namaste Beyond Yoga Community. I am happy to say that I am now writing my blog posts for Beyond. 

About  Beyond The Mat...
Depicting my opinions, interpretations and experiences of the amazing world of yoga my aspiration is to provide you with simple and practical yoga wisdom to inspire and uplift your day! 

For my first Beyond The Mat  post I thought I would share one of my favourite reflections and aspirations; Experiencing the unity of stability and ease.
Yoga and Cultivating Stability and Ease 
Yoga Asanas
An asana (yoga postures) is a good seat for the mind and the body and a good seat is one that is both stable and easeful. We stabilize the mind in part through drishti (a steady and easeful focus for the eyes) and in part through breath. Not by trying to control the breath, but by giving it space. And, when it comes to the body, the asanas bring moments of physical stability and we learn to maintain this stability with ease (not to be confused with easy) rather than resistance. Those moments when we feel the difference between holding space with stability and ease rather than rigidity and resistance brings the essence of yoga to life. 

Stability and Ease in Daily Life
This unity of stability and ease is not only present in the context of yoga asanas but it is relevant in our life as a whole. If we feel grounded/stable with who we are we don’t fear falling, in part because we are solid and in part because we know how to get back up without too much drama not if we fall but when we fall; As being grounded is rooted in humility and in the acceptance that there will always be windy periods and that falling does not mean I have to lose my inner stability. In the same way, if we cultivate the sense of ease, we soften our edge and stop taking ourselves too seriously which brings curiosity and the feeling of possibilities to the mind.
Osteopathy for Adults

In our practice, we treat adults who are constantly trying to balance their work life and home life while striving to stay active and healthy. According to Statistics Canada, each year approximately 12% of Canadian adults will experience sprains, strains, fractures, concussions, injuries to the spine, or other musculoskeletal injuries severe enough to limit their activities. People in this age category also seek help with other health issues, such as degenerative disc disease of the spine, digestive difficulties, headaches and migraines, sciatica, or chronic tendonitis. These conditions can often limit their ability to maintain an active lifestyle and can interfere with their work. Osteopathic treatment can help adults in reaching a full recovery from acute injuries, or in managing the symptoms of chronic conditions. If you have any questions about osteopathy or athletic therapy, please do not hesitate to contact us!
