One For The Brides-To-Be

Since our very own dancing yoga teacher, Sandi Visser, got engaged last weekend, it seemed only polite to do a little post on yoga for weddings.  We love nothing more than a good cause for celebration and this certainly qualifies – we are so excited for you, Sandi!

How is this for an idea for your photos, Sandi?

The moment that you say “I do”.

Look, they even have our lights in the background? Love this pic.

We love this. The flowers, the light, the trust!

And finally, finishing off with this lovely Warrior 2 for two… A beautifully grounding asana, to keep you steady and remind you to use your practice when the madness of setting up for the big day kicks in, and to keep you balanced and strong.

Here is a Native American blessing that you may wish to keep close to your heart:

“May the sun bring you new energy by day.
May the moon softly restore you by night.

May the rain wash away your worries.

May the breeze blow new strength into your beings

And all the days of your lives may you walk gently through the world and know its beauty.

Treat yourselves and each other with respect.

And remind yourselves often of what brought you together.

Give the highest priority to the tenderness, gentleness and kindness that your connection deserves.

When frustration, difficulty and fear assail your relationship, as they threaten all relationships at one time or another,

remember to focus on what is right between you, not only on the part that seems wrong.

In this way you can ride out the storms

when clouds hide the face of the sun in your lives,

remembering that even if you lose sight of it for a moment the sun is still there.

And if each of you takes responsibility for the quality of your life together, it will be marked with abundance and delight”.
