Range Of Motion, Different for Everyone

Range Of Motion, Different for Everyone

All along our physical journey (regardless of yoga interactions) there are people who seem stronger, more flexible and all round more able. I see my ego be sparked by this still daily, but I’m not so much letting this influence me.  Yes, I still am on my own path of continuous development but no, I […]

Mindfulness & Meditation

Mindfulness & Meditation

What is Meditation?  How do you ‘do’ meditation?  What is mindfulness? I want to clear my mind, so why do I want to be mind-full more than now?!.. I don’t have time to sleep, let alone meditate!..  It all sounds a bit stressful?!..  ..Anything sound familiar? I guess the best place to begin, is to highlight, […]

Why is Yoga so Popular?

No doubt about it, every where you go, there is someone who practices, or has attained their Teacher Training for yoga (even if not using it).  Yoga seems to have become one of the world’s major commodities, yoga clothes, equipment, sessions, classes, training courses, retreats, workshops, holidays, studios, you name it!..  It’s easier in some […]

Candle Meditation

Candle Meditation

One of the most enLightening (excuse the pun) meditations, for me, is the Candle meditation.  Couldn’t be simpler and yet neither more beautiful and effective to calm the mind and bring you into the present.

Yoga being the seed for creation

Yoga being the seed for creation

Truth be told, although yoga IS a way of life, a way of living, breathing and being in the world, which I much admire; I haven’t made the time or felt I’ve had the stamina to self-practice in the physical sense (or even go to another’s class!) for months, probably as long as my blog writing has […]

Frazzled?

Frazzled?

  I’m being blessed with many sessions to instruct recently, from meditation through to strong Pilates classes, thus I see a lot of bodies and the majority of them seem to be more tired than I realised at this time of year! Caffeine helps but for how long? Getting more into instructing the physical side […]
