7 Levels of Peace
Make peace an everyday practice 

  • 1. Peace with the body: yoga starts with hatha yoga, a perfect way to make peace with your body. Purify the body with practices such as asanas, pranayamas and shatkarmas (cleansing), as well as a healthy, natural lifestyle.
  • 2. Peace with the mind: hatha yoga leads to raja yoga, the yoga of mind management. Purify the mind by relaxing deeply with yoga nidra, behaving and interacting wisely (yama and niyama) and meditating for understanding and inner peace.
  • 3. Peace with the family: your family are those with whom you live and interact in everyday life. Practice bhakti yoga by caring for each other with consideration and respect. 
  • 4. Peace with humanity: we live in a globalised world. By accepting diversity and being friendly to all, create virtuous circles of love.
  • 5. Peace with culture: true peace involves the removal of violence at the cultural level. Think about what this means so that you recognise the roots of violence that are embedded in culture – such as bigotry towards sub-groups based on race, gender, religion or other factors. Celebrate the brilliance of culture in all its forms.
  • 6. Peace with Mother Nature: our relationship with Mother Nature is in crisis. Take action to protect, restore and enjoy the natural environment wherever you live. Be conscious of the impact your lifestyle has. Be part of the solution by reducing waste and consumption. Live simply, use only what you need and give back more than you take. This is the way of yoga.
  • 7. Peace with universal consciousness: through yoga realign and strengthen your connection with the universal consciousness and energy which pervades creation. Let go of the ego-based identity and live a life of service and humility. Do this by becoming the drashta, the observer, of your relationship with life. Your intuition will flower and your light will shine.

'Be aware of your breathing.  Notice how this takes attention away from your thinking and creates space’
Eckhart Tolle

When stressed the nervous system triggers the flight and fright reaction. This causes us to breathe short and shallow as if we are permanently hyperventilating.   
Prolonged periods of stress and incorrect  breathing leads to anxiety, confusion and many other debilitating health conditions. 

The breathing practices, pre breathing technique asanas – postures to deepen the breath & Yoga Nidra - relaxation taught on this weekend will correct, reset and restore the breathing patterns resulting in greatly reducing stress and anxiety.
