Use the seasons for more effective yoga practise

The seasons affect all of us and they effect us in a number of ways. Not only do we feel more comfortable with the pleasant warmth of the summer sun on our skin to having to wrap up and brace the wind and rain of the winter, but we also behave differently. Often without even realising it we will take out a different mind set and develop a different attitude when the days are grey and cold and this will have a negative impact on our behaviour and of course our state of mind. The seasons and the impact on our life can be reflected in the way we practise yoga and sessions should be adapted in order to make them most effective throughout the different times of year. This is a concept that has been recognised and developed by the yoga teacher-training organisation at

They offer a 200-hour teacher training course but as well as coming out of it as a qualified teacher, you will also develop a variety of tool and learn how and when to use them to your benefit.

Benefits of Yoga


Long-term practitioners of yoga report improvements in strength and flexibility, increased mental and emotional well-being and even reduced symptoms of asthma and other respiratory issues.  Some research backs up these reports, though some researchers point out methodological flaws including small sample sizes, lack of randomization and bias.  Evidence does indicate that regular yogic exercise does increase GABA levels in the brain, leading to a boost in mood and reducing anxiety more than comparable exercise like walking.  The cognitive and calming benefits of yoga have led to many schools introducing yoga as part of their physical education curricula, in spite of some parents’ contention that yoga is inherently religious and should not be taught in public schools.  


Other studies suggest that exercise, breathing, and meditation, the three main tenets of Hatha Yoga, may lower blood pressure, lower cardiovascular risk and improve the symptoms of cardiovascular disease.  Other studies point to yoga’s potential to help with lower back pain and minimize symptoms of schizophrenia.  Some oncologists recommend yoga to cancer patients to help alleviate depression, pain, fatigue, insomnia, anxiety, and other effects of dealing with cancer.
