Discover Yourself Through Yoga with Irene Ais
This episode is a truly beautiful conversation about the life enhancing benefits of yoga. If you’ve ever been curious about yoga, or perhaps attended a class and not quite felt ‘it’, or you regularly attend classes and are keen to learn more - this episode is a doorway into explaining and understanding the depth of the practice.
We start with Irene’s own journey to the practice. For many years she wasn’t nurturing herself, travelling the world and disconnected from herself. However she believes that yoga finds us when we’re ready, and that it found her at just the right time with an opportunity to “experience herself”.
Since then, Irene has spent 15 years exploring the ancient practices of yoga and meditation, and takes her own students on a journey of self-discovery by combining the physical poses with an invitation to drop into the energetic practice and the self.
This knowledge coupled with an innate understanding of the mind/body connection makes for a powerful combination, and a powerful episode on the invitation we all have to know ourselves, and that that journey is a winding and imperfect one, starting exactly where we are when we’re ready to take it.
“Our yoga practice becomes a mirror. It reflects back to us our whole selves.”
“Yoga is a pathway to freedom. Freedom from what? Freedom from suffering.”
