Earth Day is in April but now is the time to begin planning how to celebrate a renewed connection with the planet by doing something for yourself. Yoga is one way to care for the body, improve fitness, and connect to the earth. Eoin Finn’s Earth Body Yoga dvd will challenge your flexibility, fitness and thoughtfully showcases one of the most paramount and life changing messages of this decade; how having an intimate relationship with nature will dramatically change your health and happiness. This interconnection with the nature around us is central to Blissology Yoga and the direction modern yoga is set to move in the 21st Century.

Filmed in one most soulful locations in the world, Baja, Mexico, Earth Body Yoga is a revolutionary yoga video. The dvd focuses not just on the technical yoga practice but also on the inspirational landscapes of Mexico, California, British Columbia and Hawaii. Some routines on Earth Body Yoga are quite gentle focusing on deep stretching, while others will get one into incredible shape. They all end with deep relaxation which is so key for not just stress levels and health but for opening up the connection to nature. Einstein said it best, “You can view your whole life as if nothing is a miracle or as if everything is a miracle.” The ultimate goal of Earth Body Yoga, is that one walks away from practice feeling so relaxed and present that even in the middle of a city one connects with the natural wonders around us, such as the shapes of the clouds, stars near and far in the sky, the smells of budding rose blossoms or even one’s own heartbeat.

There are many recent studies citing the benefits of using nature as the source of connection to the world to improve health and happiness. During your Earth Body Yoga practice one will be inspired by the unique knowledge of the interconnectedness with the earth such as; every drop of sweat comes and goes from the ocean; every second breath one takes is made possible by plankton in the ocean; every time one sighs out a breath in a yoga pose, this is not only good for you but also gives life to a tree.

Eoin Finn says, “My life mission is to channel the energy of beautiful places through all my interactions with people. I could not teach with as much passion and inspiration as I do without my connection to Nature. It’s my time on the water with Dolphins and Whales or alone on vast stretches of beaches that give me my super powers. I tune into something and let it come through me. The real source is the beauty of Nature. When I get too busy to take time to have the experiences in nature, I lose these super powers. Earth Body Yoga will show us all how to unplug daily from our digital world and plug back into the Earth’s source. “
