But did you know many of the ancient traditions, as well […]

  • Yoga is More than Sparkly Pants

    This week we’re remembering that yoga is about coming back to ourselves, inner transformation, and self realisation. No new pairs of expensive leggings, or green juices, or detox retreats, or scented candles or ‘being nice to ourselves’ will replace the work that really has to be done – on the inside. These are all lovely […]

  • Safe and Secure

    It’s an evolutionary instinct to feel safe. In fact, staying close to our mothers and our tribes is one of the reasons why we’ve survived so long. You can see this instinct in our children – how they stay near mum and dad so they feel safe before venturing out to make new friends and […]

  • Injured

    Last week we were exploring feeling in the body from the calm relaxed space of the Para Sympathetic Nervous system. Apart from the obvious benefits of feeling relaxed, plus the physiological and psychological importance of spending time out of our stress response, being in this space prevents injury. I know ALL about injuries. In October […]

  • Body

    This week and probably next we’re looking at aspects of the body. Don’t we do that every week? Well, yes and no. Although in the West, yoga is primarily a physical practice, we are often completely disconnected from our bodies – even when practicing. I’ve mentioned before how many of us (including me!) live our […]
