Farewell to this year with a flowing yoga sequence

Hello and welcome to our last yoga asana for the year! I thought we would finish up the year with a culmination of all the monthly asanas for this year. I have put the asanas into a flowing yoga sequence, a great way to practice all of our asanas for 2015. We can refer back to the online yoga articles on thephuketnews.com, to catch up on the finer details of each asana.

Flow, it is such a common word these days. Good old Wikipedia describes flow as: “Flow, also known as the zone, is the mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energised focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity. In essence, flow is characterised by complete absorption in what one does.”

How was your flow this year? It is so easy to lose your step and instead of going with your flow, you get caught up on the wave of life and get dragged along.

Sometimes I find that in order to change from just getting dragged along in life to finding your own flow in life, you need an anchor, something that brings you back to your “place” in life. I chose yoga as my anchor.

Yoga grounds me, challenges me and helps me keep my “place” in life. Until you find your own anchor I am happy to share my yoga anchor with you. So as we approach the end of a year and the beginning of a new one, let’s put our hearts, bodies and minds into the practice of our 2015 yoga flow, working with each asana for a 30-second to one-minute timeframe, being present with each movement and allowing the mind to relax on the simplicity of the task. 

As the mind relaxes away from tension, your relaxed mind will show its true intentions and desires for the year to come and your FLOW will begin.
