My Tea Break

Rediscovering Tea around the world

Yoga and Tea

8 Comments

Some people start their new year resolutions in January but I usually do it in October because that’s when my work gets less stressful and I start thinking about my life balance. As always, I finish the month of September thinking that I need to pay more attention and care about my health and spiritual development and spend more time with family, friends and enjoying things that I like.

So I decided to start yoga classes at Casa Vinaysa in Lisbon. As soon as you enter the door you feel relaxed and at home and you are welcome to serve youself a cup of Tea.

Tea is often offered at the end of a yoga session as a bridge between yoga and the high-intensity pace outside.

While drinking Tea it’s not a ritualised process in itself, the tradition of combining Tea after yoga has an ancient connection.

Yogi Bhajan, is a master of Kundalini  Yoga and a famous Indian Spiritual Teacher, who brought Kundalini Yoga to the West. He gave his first Kundalini Yoga in LA in 1969.  After each yoga class, he served a special spice drink to his students, which they affectionately named “Yogi Tea”. The Tea was a blend of five spices: cardamom, cinnamon, clove, ginger and black pepper. Following Ayurvedic medicine, a form of alternative medicine that is traditional in India , this combination has unique and healthy properties.

Many people believe that Tea helps build the connection to ourselves and to those around us . Tea helps achieving relaxation, bringing harmony and connecting with each-other as a family. In addition to the positive mental connections to drinking Tea, the beneficial properties of Tea builds on those that you receive from practicing yoga.

Drinking a cup of Tea and practicing  yoga  just seems a natural combination and together you will get a sense of calmness, simplicity,  health and inner peace. 

Happy Tea Break.
