A YOGI CHA BLOG
TURBULENCE- don’t budge from these things.
I have always been determined that I move as soon as I get out of bed.
I have my morning cleaning routine, so that I get rid of waste products in all areas : bowel movement, tongue scrape, self massage, warm lemon water and meditation.
Depending on several aspects it will be followed by Ashtanga Mysore or my own gentler routine of sun salutations. If I’m in good health, those salutations are followed by a run.
What this routine does is not so much a question of keeping me healthy but bringing my set points to their natural positions.
When there is turbulence, we need this more than ever because it’s the moment those set points are completely out of whack. And of course our tendency would be to lose our north even more.
This sounds so simple but I promise you that when you feel like the world is upside down (or you are just down under), when you despise yourself or others your mind is not clear. So, seeing what would be “the natural right action” is not on 20/20.
Hi, I’m Charlotte (Yogi Cha). I’m a yoga teacher with a degree in clinical psychology. I’ve always had a deep curiosity toward eastern and western approaches to understanding the mind, and the ming/body union. You’ll find me in the lovely Canggu Bali, nestled amongst coconuts, palm trees and sunshine 🥥🌴🌞
