Path to the pose – crow

Path to the pose – crow
I had a conversation with my Dad recently and he commented on an Instagram shot I posted of me doing a handstand. He said he could NEVER do a handstand, and I realised I said exactly the same thing just a few years ago (and I’m still working on it). It got me thinking, on ...

The big mistake

The big mistake
A few weeks ago, I made a mistake. Yes, it’s true, and here I am admitting it. Very uncomfortably. Why is “mistake” such a dirty word for so many of us? I took a look at my own reaction and came up with three ways I could start to embrace my mistakes, and see them ...

Feeding the good wolf

Feeding the good wolf
An intention I’ve been working with in the past weeks is actually inspired by something a FANTASTIC YogaOne teacher, Piper, mentioned in one of her classes. There’s a Native American legend that speaks of two wolves fighting within all of us. One is evil, and represents hate, anger, reactivity, resentment, ego; the other is good, ...

Yoga for Grief Part 2

Yoga for Grief Part 2
In the “More Than Asana” weekend we learned about the eight-limb path of yoga described in the Yoga Sutras in Patañjali’s Treaties on Yoga. I say “learned about”, ultimately we learned the concepts exist; we barely dipped a single toe into the ocean of life-long learning the 196 sutras encompasses. I took some time to ...

Yoga for Grief, Part 1

Yoga for Grief, Part 1
As yoga is becoming more and more a part of my life I find myself turning to it for support, relief, and understanding in many different aspects of my life. Last week my Nana passed away. It was, and still is, a huge shock. She had been absolutely fine, had just had surgery on her ...

Healing hands 2.0

Healing hands 2.0
I preface this post with an acknowledgment that it’s been some time since I last wrote – but I have been doing other updates around the website, such as About Me and my Instagram feed (check them out and let me know what you think!). I wanted to reflect more on “hands-on assists” after the ...

Healing hands

02. May 2016 Yoga
I’ve just finished a weekend workshop of hands-on assists as part of my RYT200 training. It was another fantastic, enriching, connecting workshop by YogaOne and once again I found myself amazed with the talent and passion of my teachers and assistants, and the openness and acceptance of my tribe. I’m still collecting my thoughts on ...

Michael Hyatt on Creativity

29. April 2016 Creativity
Not three days after I posted on how I enjoyed flying as a time to reflect, take a breath, and catch-up, one of my favourite speakers, authors, and bloggers, Michael Hyatt discussed some similar thoughts in a blog that really resonated with me. Sometimes it seems like I’m most productive at thirty thousand feet. And I don’t mean ...

Living on the go

I love travelling, and I especially love flying. I find it a great opportunity to take a breath and catch up. For me it could be a book that’s fallen to the wayside, that movie I’ve been waiting to see, or simply a chance to reflect on the last few weeks – whether it’s the ...
