How To Experience Contentment in the Here and Now
Learn to take control of your happiness by understanding the wisdom of your body. On this 1-day retreat Lely reveals secret yogic practices that balance your hormones, regulate your heartbeat, boost your happiness levels and protect you from stress.
‘The ancient yogis referred to yoga as a science because they observed and understood human nature in a whole-body way, rather than the pharmaceutical strategy of treating isolated specific body parts. Lely Aldworth
Stress has a huge impact on our hormonal system because our body responds by triggering hormones to ensure it’s survival, unable to determine whether we’re facing a matter of life & death, or just stressing out over temporary loss of 4G coverage.
4 Facts about hormones and happiness
– hormones affect men too, not just women
– hormones are directly connected to happiness, stress, digestion, metabolism, energy and growth
– oestrogen and serotonin levels are closely related, regulating mood, appetite, sleep, memory and learning
– the hormone that keeps your blood sugar level from getting out of balance is insulin
Great minds, from the Ancient Greeks to modern day advocates of mental health, agree that the primary thing we’re all striving for is contentment. Feeling content is vital for longevity and good health. Contentment is usually felt after an achievement, like a reward for a job well done, but if our hormones are out of balance our feelings of joy can quickly turn to unpleasant feelings and unwated physical symptoms.
Based on scientific and practical aspects of yoga and philosophy, Lely’s day retreat in London deals head on with how to be contented in the here and now and teaches you how to achieve hormonal balance by simple yoga practices.
