When you find peace within yourself, you become the kind of person who can live at peace with others
During my many years running a small event business in Canberra, Australia then moving it to Melbourne,Australia in its later years. I pushed my mind and body to limits which tested my resilience in many ways.
Through my journey in managing a small event team and designing, styling, and executing unique event experiences I developed a back injury from the strenuous work involved with the lifting and styling of events. I did Not need to go to the gym, my work was a gym!
And while I loved what I did and how things unfolded beautifully at every event. My health suffered as I kept pushing through my pain.
Twenty-Twenty was the year I decided to STOP putting myself last and started focusing on my Health and Wellness through a planned Wellness Journey.
They say practice makes perfect. Don’t strive for perfection strive to make a difference in your body and mind. Stop and listen to your body to understand what it is telling you to do and how to look after it. Remember a healthy body leads to a healthy and positive mindset.
Practicing yoga regularly has been my saviour and I am so happy at the progress my body is now making. When I researched my connection to yoga. I realised that my ancestors, The Pharaohs practiced a type of yoga called Kemetic yoga which dates to pharaonic times.
Kemetic yoga is an Egyptian system of yoga that predates Indian yoga practices and involves a combination of physical movements, deep breathing techniques and meditation. It is derived from the name ‘Kemet’ one of the names of ancient Egypt.
This form of yoga has a larger emphasis on breathing patterns, while also inculcating the philosophies of self-development, healing of mind-body-spirit and self-discovery.
Kemetic yoga poses were seen on the walls of temples in ancient Egypt as per image below.
