  • Energy Leaks

    Over the next few weeks we’ll be looking at the idea of Energy Leaks. In the yoga system our practices (asana, pranayama, meditation) are designed to bring energy (prana) into the body: for vitality and for spiritual awakening. But this is all a bit of a waste of time if we then leak that energy […]

  • Why I Changed the Way I Teach

    Anyone who has been coming to my classes over the past 6 months has probably noticed a change. Gone is the strict alignment, holding poses for a long time, and rules – and instead a more exploratory, flowing style, with moments of stillness, and much more about getting students to feel what is right for […]

  • What brings you to yoga?

    January 2009. I remember having seen the sign on Northcote Road several times before it actually registered.

Over lunch, Liz shared my […]
