Think of others

Dear Yogis/Yoginis,

If you are thinking about joining me in Spain next year you may wish to nab a bargain; book before 31st December to get a 10% discount.  Do not hesitate, over 50% of places are already booked and flight prices are only likely to increase as time goes by. For all bookings I make a donation to Give a dog a home Rescue Malaga.

Books

The Practice Manual by David Swenson. If you can only take one yoga book to a desert island this is it! Even if you are not an Ashtangi.
The Spirit of Yoga by Kathy Phillips. A beautiful book.
How Yoga Works by G M Roach & C McNally. Healing Yourself and Others with the Yoga Sutra. A must read for all yogis.

DVDs

Apart from the obvious Yogatone DVD 40mins of Ashtanga based core strength yoga with Les
Enlighten up! A skeptic’s journey into the world of yoga

CDs

Monsoon Point by Al Gromer Khan & Amelia Cuni for me this is the ONLY CD for yoga practice
Sacred Chants of Shiva by Craig Pruess Singers of the Art of Living From the banks of the Ganges.  A mystical sound which will put you ‘in the zone’ with track 5 my favorite for relaxation

Eco friendly

Buy a friend a stainless steel reusable drinking bottle and say “no” to unfriendly plastic. 

Dementia Poem

When I wander don't tell me to come and sit down.

don’t tell me to come and sit down.

Wander with me.

It may be because I am hungry, thirsty, need the toilet.

Or maybe I just need to stretch my legs.

When I call for my mother

(even though I’m ninety!)

don’t tell me she has died.

Reassure me, cuddle me, ask me about her.

It may be that I am looking for the security that my mother once gave me.

When I shout out

please don’t ask me to be quiet…or walk by.

I am trying to tell you something,

but have difficulty in telling you what.

Be patient. Try to find out.

I may be in pain.

When I become agitated or appear angry,

please don’t reach for the drugs first.

I am trying to tell you something.

It may be too hot, too bright, too noisy.

Or maybe it’s because I miss my loved ones.

Try to find out first.

When I don’t eat my dinner or drink my tea it may be because I’ve forgotten how to.

Show me what to do, remind me.

It may be that I just need to hold my knife and fork I may know what to do then.

When I push you away

while you’re trying to help me wash or get dressed, maybe it’s because I have forgotten what you have said.

Keep telling me what you are doing

over and over and over.

Maybe others will think

you’re the one that needs the help!

With all my thoughts and maybes,

perhaps it will be you

who reaches my thoughts,

understands my fears,

and will make me feel safe.

Maybe it will be you

who I need to thank.

If only I knew how.

Quote

The rhythm of the body the melody of the mind and the harmony of the soul creates the symphony of life.

B.K.S Iyengar

Yours in Yoga,

Les
