I’m Feeling The Crazy With You!

I’m Feeling The Crazy With You!

I'm feeling the crazy with you. Let me explain what I mean. I love the summer, it's such a great time to let lose and have fun, catch up with friends and do those things you've been putting off all year. But it can also get a little crazy and unsetting being out of...

Lighten Up, Let Loose and Shake Off Those Cares

Lighten Up, Let Loose and Shake Off Those Cares

This weekend at the festival reminded me how nourishing FUN is to the soul. Life can feel so serious sometimes, and so those moments of pure delight, silliness and joy are a much needed reprieve. We all need a space where we can lighten up, let loose and shake off...

It Takes So Much Courage to be Vulnerable

It Takes So Much Courage to be Vulnerable

It takes so much courage to be vulnerable, especially if you’re like me and grew up in a culture that taught me that being hard was being strong. We can choose to believe that somehow we’re immune to difficult feelings – that we’re somehow better than – safer than –...

The Gift of Problems and Challenges

The Gift of Problems and Challenges

Boy, it sure doesn't feel like a 'gift' when I come up against a problem or challenge. Almost always, my impulse is to see if there's anywhere to run, side-step, blame or numb-out. But honestly when I look back on my life so far, I know I've learned the most about...

We All Have Our Struggles and Our Fears

We All Have Our Struggles and Our Fears

We all have our struggles and our fears. For sure I experience confusion or despair, or suffer because I’ve become attached to a picture in my head of how things should be, or what I THINK is happening. Leaning into those uncomfortable feelings and parts of myself is...

Devotion

Devotion

Devotion isn't a term we often refer to in our culture, but I know from experience that my life without devotion means no commitment, no follow-through, and no grounding in what really matters to me. I'm just simply blown about by the wind, by people and situations....

My Journey Through Recovery

My Journey Through Recovery

Boy, there are so many times that I've wanted to give up in my life - my journey through recovery has had it's moments, my run of bad luck with men (mostly due to bad choices), and hand on heart - even running the studio has been questioned a thousand times. When we...

Pitta

Pitta

Our Pitta Dosha is our energy for transformation and this is a great resource for getting things done - focused, determined and genius at manifesting visions. But out of balance, this baby can become short-tempered, pushy and impatient (hands up who can relate to...

Change is a Bugger Isn’t It!?

Change is a Bugger Isn’t It!?

Change is a bugger isn't it!? And so often our tendency is to grip and cling and refuse to accept what's happening. But here's the killer, the more we contract against our experience, the more we suffer. Sucks right?! The thing is, change is inevitable in all aspects...

it’s time to get our KALI on

it’s time to get our KALI on

Ok people, it's time to get our KALI on!! Hahhhhh (tongue sticking out!) More and more I see that there's a half-conscious tendency to confuse being yogic with always being 'nice'. True, we're aiming to show up as our best selves and to be loving and kind in...

Kapha

Kapha

Our final dosha this week is Kapha. For me this is the energy of mother earth. When it's in balance, it feels stable, supportive, loyal, loving and patient. You know when you're with someone who has a strong Kapha, as they make you feel super-safe and nurtured (my...

So Much of The Time, We Lose Ourselves.

So much of the time, we lose ourselves. Weird right! - how can we lose ourselves if we're right here?! But without knowing, we’ve taken on other people’s beliefs or ideas or philosophies and accepted them as our own, without question. If you were fortunate, you were...

Ambition … there is no goal in a yoga practice

There is no goal in a yoga practice. The goal is the practice itself; ambition isn’t something that comes into it. Remembering on our mat that it’s not about trying to beat the person next to us or mirror how they look, we each hold a pose different to the next...
