The Physical, Mental & Spiritual Benefits of Yoga | Egret Jewellery

  Yoga is absolutely wonderful. It is not only an amazing way to keep your body healthy and feeling great but if you connect to it a little deeper it can become a whole lot more. Yogis seek to experience the spirit or the energy all around us, when we are connecting to this energy we are helping to balance out our inner emotions and learning how to harness them. Yoga in its truest form gives us time to quiet the mind and truly listen to our inner selves, really feeling the flow of energy all around us.

Why we should give love on Valentine's Day | Egret Jewellery

Love is a universal language. It is a language we all understand at an instinctual level – it speaks to us in a way that can navigate great distances through time and space. It is the life force of our beautiful planet and without it we would cease to exist. Maybe we don’t understand it fully but we can all recognise it, it is the feeling we get when we stare up into those big brown eyes of the person we love, that feeling of deep connection when we hold our child for the first time. Or the boiling over of giddiness when you catch someone’s eye and hold onto their gaze, realising that some-how we are one consciousness.   Valentine's...

Our spiritual relationship with nature and why it is good for our mental and physical health

  We’ve all experienced it. That sense of peace as we wind our way along-side a sleepy river bed.  The feeling of sheer joy and awe when staring out across a great valley, that sense that we could in that moment of time conquer anything that stood in our way. Or staring out into a vast ocean, the natural rhythmic sound of the lapping waves giving us a realisation of inner peace and total insignificance all at the same time.   Most people can feel that being outdoors has a positive effect on them. So why is it that Nature makes us feel so alive and at peace all at the same time? Why do we internally crave it? Research now...
