The meaning of practising yoga and exercising in the water
Hello, and how are you? Thanks for visiting my site.
So I’ll start with a question, “Why do I practice yoga daily?”
A lot of yoga practice has been focused on the “look” of bodies over the past few decades, especially in Western society. The trim, muscular, lean body is tightly squeezed into colourful leggings that enhance a “super body-conscious” effect with extra tone around the waist and triple volume on the buttocks.
But my personal take on physical practice has been a lot to do with supporting my mental health since a pretty young age. Studying the theory and philosophy of yoga alongside the physical practice helped to strengthen my psyche through some very difficult changes that have taken place in my life, especially over the last few years. Life does, after all, consist of relentless, continuous changes. We need to be able to feel each situation deeply to acknowledge its nature or its purpose, so we can accept it fully and act upon it healthily. In this way, we can continue to move on in time, and live and embrace every bit of life fully.
I provide one-to-one hatha based yoga practice and swimming tuition that are carefully tailored to each individual's unique body needs and goals. I have been a qualified swimming teacher since 2017 and completed my yoga certification in September 2018 at Kaivalyadhama ( a registered Trust established in 1924) at Lonavla, Maharashtra, India.
As well as yoga and swimming training, my background includes a Bachelors degree (BA Hons) in dance studies at Roehampton University in London, a Masters degree in Digital Documentary at University of Sussex. I am an independent video/filmmaker, and my themes centre around mind and body practice, mental health, and the theory of phenomenology. I want to capture and communicate the story of healing and the process of change in those people who are making a real shift in their lives in their own way. I also offer event documentation ( weddings, conferences etc ) through photography and videography.
How is Movement Practice ( Yoga & Swimming) also Creative Inspiration?
It can spark and initiate ....
I can highly recommend Ayami.
Working with her was a pleasure as she teaches with an enthusiasm and passion that is infectious!
She took time to thouroughly research and understand my needs and designed a great one to one session to help me with my sciatica.
The asanas were carefully chosen and gentle enough to do even with this very painful condition.
In addition to this Ayami sent me some links for further reading and home care for my sciatica and taught me some excellent breathing techniques that gave me a deep sense relaxation.
