Yoga to rebalance - happiness / sadness

Please click on the video below to watch, 'Yoga to rebalance-  happiness / sadness'-on my YouTube Channel.



Please read the disclaimer on the blog before following these videos -http://flexiladies.blogspot.co.uk/p/disclaimer.html

We all want happiness but we all have periods of sadness.  In our pursuit of happiness we can get attached to the things we believe will give us that happiness but such attachments will ultimately lead to suffering.  We look for happiness in material things or postpone happiness until conditions are met - 'I will be happy once I have lost weight' etc but true happiness lies, not in these but within us.

As yogis we practice acceptance of both the happy times and the sad times. If we did not have the dark, cold days of winter we would not appreciate so much the newness of life that the spring brings.

We recognise that both happiness and sadness are transient - it is comforting to know that the sadness will pass and should not try to 'hold on' to the happy times.  

In our video this week we are looking to bring balance to the crown chakra in order to bring acceptance to what is. This will also help us feel connected to others and to the divine for it is disconnection that can bring suffering.  Our meditation this week is again one from nature.
