I read a quote the other day "most people who go to yoga classes aren't interested in yoga" - J Brown. So. True.
Being interested in the physical practice of asana (postures) does not necessarily mean one is interested in studying the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, chanting Sanskrit, going vegetarian or practicing the 8 limbs: 1.Yama (ways we relate to others and our environment), 2.Niyama (ways we relate to ourself), 3.Asana (postures), 4.Pranayama (breathing), 5.Pratyahara (withdrawal of senses), 6.Dharana (concentration) 7.Diyana (meditation) 8.Samadhi (oneness)Read More

Sukha = open space, joy, ease, sweetness
Dukha = restricted space, suffering, struggle.
The idea of ‘detoxing’ can feel overwhelming, since we tend to associate a ‘cleanse’ with hard work, bland foods, complicated regimes and total restriction! The Ayurvedic concept of purification is quite different – no need for an expensive juicer or supplements here!
