MY 21 MOST INSPIRING & FAVOURITE QUOTES ABOUT YOGA & LIFE

February 16, 2017

I often get asked how many days a week I practice ‘yoga’. I find this an odd question to respond to, and often my answer shocks most people, because a lot of the time my ‘practice’ isn’t solely mat based. Some weeks I practice physically 6 days, some 7, some 2 or 3. BUT Yoga is not just about the physical. It is not about how many chaturangas you can do, how long you can be upside down, how toned your biceps are, or how flexible your hips are. This is simply one limb of yoga, the asana side, you could skip this entirely and still be practicing ‘yoga’. The mental Continue reading “MY 21 MOST INSPIRING & FAVOURITE QUOTES ABOUT YOGA & LIFE” »

I’ve been doing so much work lately prepping and getting all the info ready for the retreat in May, and in compiling all the info for them to be taking home, I stopped to think about what my top 5 foods would be that I couldn’t live without (well I could still live in a sense but I wouldn’t want to do without them) – my basic every day healthy support system.

And no this isn’t a list of exotic expensive ‘super-foods’, although they are very super in the Continue reading “5 ‘SUPER’ SPICES & POWDERS I COULDN’T LIVE WITHOUT” »

“To truly ignite your passion, you have to be willing to take a risk. Be it emotional, spiritual, mental, or physical. By opening yourself up to a new experience, you will find yourself.” ~ Craig Laudicina

To try & even explain this moment in this photo and my time last year in Bali is near impossible, but I’ll give it a go: This moment in Bali broke me completely & rebuilt me at the same time. It was intense to say the least.

 

Surrounded by hundreds of people on a sacred day in a very sacred space I wept publicly for Continue reading “I CRIED IN PUBLIC & DAMN IT WAS GOOD” »
