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 […]

Heart Listening Meditation

Heart Listening Meditation

  Photo Credit Miguel Echievera This Heart Listening Meditation can help you to release fears and anxiety, tune into your true self and express the best of you.  Whatever the struggle, these past few years have had the propensity to make or break many of us.  Many have left this Earth, left relationships, ‘stable’ careers, and homes; […]

A way with no pain, no pushing and yet with full FUNction, form and freedom; nothing to prove.   Having a substantial range for flexibility and strength suggests, a focal point would help one to manifest..
