Yoga and Happiness - talk by Ruth White Sat 07 Oct

  • Well-being

This evening talk, as part of a longer weekend retreat, offers practical experience on how we can change our attitudes by re-considering our so-called problems and turning them to our advantage, or as Shakespeare put it “Sweet are the uses of adversity”.

You may choose to try a few simple yoga stretches, which Ruth will demonstrate and which can have an effect on both our energy levels and attitude. Often, we are so focussed on what we want to happen we miss the lessons and blessings found in what is happening. Our resistance causes us stress and suffering. Yet every apparent holdup or disadvantage can show us incredible amounts about ourselves, our judgements, habits and reactions. Seen this way, the whole universe becomes our teacher, a constant guide to letting go of limitation and stepping into greater happiness and stability.

Ruth White has been an international yoga teacher of some 40 years. She has taught in 25 countries, currently holding seminars in Europe and Australia, and is soon to publish a book entitled: ‘Presence – the Truth of Yoga’
