Yoga to rebalance- establishing boundaries

Please click on the video below to watch, 'Yoga to rebalance- establishing boundaries'-on my YouTube Channel.

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

It is important to establish boundaries although it is hard.  We don't want to upset anyone or hurt their feelings so we say 'yes' when really we mean 'no', take on more than we can handle and end up stressed.  Remember 'ahimsa' non-harming applies to you as much as anyone else.  My grandad always used to say 'honesty is the best policy' but I would add not so much so that your honesty is hurtful. So if you are too tired, have too much on or don't feel confident in what you are being asked to do, say so.  Maybe you could offer an alternative suggestion - 'I have too much on this week but how about next week?', 'I don't really enjoy ice skating but how about going bowling?'.  You get the idea.  Sometimes though we should say 'yes' to make the other person happy - the warm glow you get inside will be worth it!

It takes strength to say no, so this week's video will include some poses for strength.  Also we need to communicate our feelings so we include some poses for the throat chakra to help with this.  The closing meditation is one that again focuses on the nature.  

I hope you enjoy your practice.
