Take Time For Yourself

“The way we live is destructive to the body, there is no respect towards its needs and demands…

Do not fight your body. Do not carry the world on your shoulders like Atlas. Drop that heavy load of unnecessary baggage and you will feel better.

Do not kill the instinct of the body for the glory of the pose. Do not look at your body like a stranger, but adopt a friendly approach towards it. Watch it, listen to it, observe its needs, its requests, and even have fun. Play with it as children do, sometimes it becomes very alert and swift.

To be sensitive is to be alive.” Awakening the Spine, Vanda Scaravelli.

“Time is relative. This also applies to our lives. If we are concentrated on work or on something we are interested in, it is possible that we do not realize that a couple of hours have gone by. Instead, we have the feeling only a few minutes have elapsed…….

When we enjoy something, there is space in our brain. It is as though time became unreal and vanished. Time dilates and expands. Instead when we are in a hurry, nervous, anxious or afraid, time lessens and our frustrations seem to have no end. Also, when we wait for someone we are in love with, minutes become hours. We must realise that time plays funny tricks on us.” Awakening the Spine, Vanda Scaravelli.
