Pranayama & Meditation

Today’s fast paced, multi tasked way of living has created levels of stress that without it we actually feel as if we are not living. Yet this “hamster-wheel” speed is creating a state of imbalance and unrest initiated in the mind but also affecting breathing and the physical body in a significant way. If this is not managed, then chronic conditions and other situations in life may arise.

Yoga offers the practices of Pranayama and Meditation as a panacea to move towards balance and stillness. From this the practitioner may have experiences of Oneness. Special Pranayama and Meditation group classes led by Manish 

Pranayama

Prana” is a Sanskrit word that means life-force or vital energy which keeps the body alive and “Ayama” is a Sanskrit word that means expansion. Pranayama is the process of expanding our life-force.

There are a series of simple progressive practices that enables us to witness our normal breath, and then move towards a more natural breath – effortless, deep and silent. We are often left with a feeling of being energised and relaxed, witnessing the expansion of our life force.

The practices cover breath awareness, cleansing, balancing, stimulating and deepening of the breathing capacity. Guidance from physiological to spiritual essence of the practices will make this exploration with the breath a joyous experience.

 

Meditation

Yoga at the core in all its practices and styles is about the mind. Through the support of Asanas (Postures) and Pranayama (Breath focus), one unlocks the door to the mind using the key of Awareness.

In the process of focusing (Dharana) and then de-focusing (Dhyana), meditation happens. Practises of silent witnessing, breath witnessing, mantra repetition (Japa), Yoga Nidra practices or any other forms are only techniques to help the practitioner to move towards an inner silence and stillness. From this point, the integration in every aspect of known and unknown happens (Samadhi).

Testimonials

feeling energised beyond belief

I had done yoga intermittently during these times, mainly for helping with a healthy pregnancy, but then lost the habit for a while. When I found out I was pregnant again, I sought out Ananti’s class and connected with the yoga at a different level. I soon found myself practising every day and feeling energised beyond belief, even though my body was going through many challenges. On a deeper level the classes help me reconnect to my spirituality, and embrace my female role.

Ananti’s homeopathy supported this whole experience. She spent a lot of time with me understanding my background and diagnosing my issue (at the time my baby was breech). Her thorough diagnoses brought my story to the forefront, and treatment with remedies that helped me to let go and surrender, amongst other things.

All I can say is that it worked. I have since decided to sell my current business to focus on my children, and the remedies and yoga continue to help me. The resistance to letting go transpired in my body with breastfeeding problems along with the original issue of  having the baby in the wrong position. As homeopathy deals with physical problems by addressing the emotional as linked to the physical, the remedies were perfect and again helped me through this time.

I now feel equipped to deal with my new role in life in a positive way, with emotional feminine strength and ready to let go old patterns of being. I cannot thank Ananti enough for helping this transition take place and highly recommend her services for anyone who wants to take their heath & wellbeing into their own hands.
