Lifestyle is The Most Powerful Medicine We Have

Lifestyle is The Most Powerful Medicine We Have

Yoga IS an ancient and beautiful “lifestyle medicine”. In fact, yoga therapy draws upon the holistic Pancha Maya Kosha Model. Translated as the 5 layers or sheathes of our being.

This simple framework is a practical, personal and transformative map for us to develop and experience balance, wellbeing and overall health.

The five layers are: body, breath, mind, lifestyle wisdom and deep joy.

Daily practice is at the heart of a yoga therapy practice. This is because it is through our daily practice that we “clean” these layers and receive our daily dose of “lifestyle medicine” necessary for optimal health and peace of mind.

Yoga, Focus and the Wandering Mind

Yoga, Focus and the Wandering Mind

With so much attention in the west given to yoga's postures, it's easy to lose sight that yoga is ultimately about the quality and action of our focus; rather than our ability to bend in shapes or stand on our head.  

And it is through this stilled focus that we discover the pathway to experience more sustained joy, confidence and peace-of-mind. We uncover more of who we truly are.
