10 Life Changing Tips from Inspired By BKS Iyengar

1. Breathe as if you’re divine.

“When you inhale, you are taking the strength from the Creator. When you exhale, it represents the service you are giving to the world.”

2. Go inward.

“The rhythm of the body, the melody of the mind, and the harmony of the soul create the symphony of life.”

3. Connect to something greater than yourself.

“The supreme adventure in a man’s life is his journey back to his Creator. To reach the goal he needs well developed and co-ordinated functioning of his body, senses, mind, reason and Self.”

4. Health is the gateway to spiritual well-being.

“Health is a state of complete harmony of the body, mind and spirit. When one is free from physical disabilities and mental distractions, the gates of the soul open.”

5. Strive for truth.

“If you take up any noble line and stick to it, you can reach the ultimate. Be inspired, but not proud. Do not aim low; you will miss the mark. Aim high; you will be on the threshold of bliss.”

6. Embrace change.

“Change is not something that we should fear. Rather, it is something that we should welcome. For without change, nothing in this world would ever grow or blossom, and no one in this world would ever move forward to become the person they’re meant to be.”

7. Be willing to evolve.

“Yoga, an ancient but perfect science, deals with the evolution of humanity. This evolution includes all aspects of one’s being, from bodily health to self-realization. Yoga means union – the union of body with consciousness and consciousness with the soul.”

8. Examine who you are.

“The whole thrust of yogic philosophical and scientific inquiry has therefore been to examine the nature of being, with a view to learning to respond to the stresses of life without so many tremors and troubles.”

9. Be patient with your practice.

“It took me whole decades to appreciate the depth and true value of yoga.”

10. Discover your path

“Illuminated emancipation, freedom, unalloyed and untainted bliss await you, but you have to choose to embark on the Inward Journey to discover it.”



Petford Wellness Wellbeing Festival 2017

Hello Everyone

We would like to start organising the first Petford Wellness Wellbeing Festival to be held in 2018.

What is Wellbeing?

noun [ mass noun ]
the state of being comfortable, healthy, or happy: an improvement in the patient’s well-being.

We welcome submissions from anyone interested in sharing their knowledge about well-being that aligns with Petford Wellness’ philosophies, including “let food be thy medicine” and “music heals the soul”, including:

  • Artists of all kinds. Art is an amazing way to generate well-being by allowing free expression of oneself.
  • Healing sound engineers and acoustic musicians, as this will be an acoustic festival focused on generating natural healing sounds with the voice, body and acoustic instruments.
  • Cooks who do not use sugar or wheat in their recipes. Gluten free is not essential but welcome all the same. You don’t have to have a food licence or stall. We can help you get one. We just want to hear from people who make delicious goodies that are actually good. The rest is just paperwork and we’ll work it out together 🙂
  • Fermenters of kombucha, saur kraut, kim chi and more, please get in contact. We love fermented foods and would love to showcase the delicous benefits of fermented food.
  • Builders of all kinds of constructions are greatly desired at Petford Wellness, especially in the build up to the festival. We want to ensure this a family friendly fesitval and we have to build certain facilities to accommodate families.

Thank you all for reading this post. We hope to hear from like-minded people soon.

Take care of yourselves and each other.

The Petford Wellness Team
