Let’s talk Yoga, not Fashionista, Contortion, or Stretch Fads

Let’s talk Yoga, not Fashionista, Contortion, or Stretch Fads

This has been one of the hardest things I’ve written, yet.  I’ve spoken to students and other teachers about this many times and the generalisation of the issue I pose, generally, centres around individuals and groups whom from the outside, have a lot in common with I.  Thus, when criticising something which looks so close […]

New Year Same Old BS

New Year Same Old BS

It’s been quite refreshing to see different public figures NOT talking about setting new years resolutions, but perhaps I’ve managed to miss it through my lack of engagement with the mainstream media.. A friend asked me this week what super intention I had set for the coming year (yes we use the ‘intentions’ terminology rather […]

New Moon in Leo

New Moon in Leo

As you may know, this New Moon in Leo (August 2nd) is the perfect time to set intentions.  The sign of Leo representing in essence, the golden child, the shining individual whom isn’t afraid to put him or her self first.  Potentially leading into being overly self-centred, but the balance of that being a self-empowered and […]

Pilates for Posture – Upper back and Shoulders

Pilates for Posture – Upper back and Shoulders

Sunday 13th March 12.00 – 14.30   Do you ever notice yourself or those around you with classic hunched shoulders and neck when checking ones phone or other electronic device?  Even when reading a paper book it seems that we don’t do enough to counter this forward curving position to help the body to find balance […]

Why drink Ayahuasca? What to expect from it.

Why drink Ayahuasca?  What to expect from it.

Why is ‘alternative’ healing becoming such a big thing in the West?  What’s happened with conventional pharmaceuticals?  Why do we seek something to take the pain away over and over again (not just pharmaceuticals, drink, drugs, sex, addictions)..?  Why do we get so caught up and cranky in the first place?.. Because we need help, […]

Gratitude

Gratitude

I’m grateful for all my friends, family, teachers, students, and randoms who reflect aspects of myself previously unseen. I’m grateful for my warm, light, happy and nurturing home; in a location I love. I’m grateful for my life’s purpose, and what it brings me from amazing people, to profound experiences. I’m grateful for my health, for […]

To push or not to push..

To push or not to push..

To push or not to push? To push for a response in somebody who is taking their time? To push somebody/my body on the mat, until every muscle is well and truly done in? To push my mum to stop giving me a hard time about being a bit wild? To push my opinions about food […]

Less Like Hard Work

Less Like Hard Work

I’ve been working with an intention for the last 3 weeks to not work so hard.  I know I know!  My work is on a freelance basis, therefore one needs to work really hard to make it happen (it’s ok mum, I’m doing great with work)..  Getting places on time.  Being in a committed relationship, this too […]

WTF Can I do?..?

WTF Can I do?..?

WTF can I do?.. When I see her less than 20 dressed in dominatrix and pulling off a solvent for kicks.. Him so scared that he bullies the old man by-standing, playing out previous abuses that still traumatise him.. Her now not with us, at 14 gang raped and led to a life doomed by her druggy escape.. Him […]
