Combining the relaxing flows of yoga and the feeling of fulfillment from Blissology seemed like the natural thing to do for yoga instructor and Blissologist Eoin Finn. He merged the two together to practice and teach others how to connect their mind and body and feel great while they do it.
According to their website, Blissology is the art of finding the balance between personal desires and an individual’s impact on the web of life. Created by Finn in 1990, it does not have to be combined with yoga to practice, but the reflective nature of yoga lends itself to the ideas of Blissology. Yoga also has benefits on its own. It reduces stress, builds flexibility, and even slows the signs of aging, said DietsInReview.com’s yoga expert Jill Lawson.
With all this in mind, Finn has released the Summer of Love and Bliss free yoga podcasts that can be downloaded and plugged in anywhere. The podcasts make him accessible in locations or situations that may otherwise not be possible.
“For those who are unable to attend a yoga class, modern technology has made it possible to still gain the many health benefits of yoga,” Lawson said. “Some of the most coveted yoga teachers, such as Eoin Finn, have an extensive travel schedule which makes it nearly impossible to take his class on a regular basis. Piping his yoga podcast straight into your house is an accessible way to have the next best thing.”
The podcasts come in a variety of skill levels so they can be used by anyone from the beginner to the experienced yogi. Some of the podcasts also come with a PDF file that can be downloaded and followed along with the sequences that are outlined.
Though yoga via podcast is convenient, it may be difficult to stick with at first since the podcasts allow users to do the flows at home instead of in a structured class. Lawson offered some advice on how to keep disciplined while doing the podcast. “I suggest listening to the same podcast several practice sessions in a row, until you feel very familiar with the progression and flow. While it may sound counterintuitive, knowing the podcast like the back of your hand will actually make it easier to stay focused long enough to complete the entire class,” she said.
