Chiropractor

Last week I went to Oslo to my Chiropractor treatment. He worked the muscles connected to the hip, top and bottom. It takes me about a week to recover, it feels great when the side effects goes away, and I feel even better than before.

When it comes to yoga I just continue with my at home practice. It is for the moment flexibility in the shoulder and arms as well as lower back. I also lay on my mat in a relaxed position and listen to meditations by Deepak Chopra. I signed up for another Iyengar workshop with Glenn Ceresoli in March, to have something to look forward too is very important.

If you have any challenges when it comes to your yoga practice, just remember, sometimes a bit of relaxation and meditation is what you need. I love to do tougher yoga when my body is ready for it, my guess, you do too.

Lotus flower

The lotus flower represents a yogis path, and is considered one of the most sacred flowers today.

Lotus´s grows in both Asia and Australia. “The lotus also has a life cycle unlike any other. With its roots based in mud, it submerges every night into murky river water, and—undeterred by its dirty environment—it miraculously re-blooms the next morning without residue on its petals”.

“The lotus represented something unearthly and enlightening for Eastern cultures, which is why the flower is often seen alongside divine figures. In Buddhist and Egyptian culture, the flower represented the universe. In Hindu culture, it is said that gods and goddesses sat on lotus thrones. And according to Buddhist myth, the Buddha appeared atop a floating lotus, and his first footsteps on Earth left lotus blossoms.”

It´s white colour symbolizes purity in Buddhism.
