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.

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 ...

I’m still collecting my thoughts on ...

Don’t forget to…

“Breathe in. Breathe out. Breathe in. Breathe out. Forget this and attaining Enlightenment will be the least of your problems.” [1] Something I learned a lot about last week is breathing. Surprising, as it’s something I’ve been doing instinctively for over 28 years – and I’ve been doing it wrong! (Well not wrong, there’s no right and wrong in ...

New beginnings

New beginnings
I have toyed with the idea of starting a blog for years. I used to love writing but over the years, as it does, day job and “grown-up” life edged out the creative outlets I enjoyed in school. It was two things that made my mind up. Yesterday I completed a 10 day immersion as part of YogaOne ...
