The Greatest Gift Yoga Has Given Me

The Greatest Gift Yoga Has Given Me


As we continue to practice yoga, different things can arise for us. This is a deeply spiritual practice which is designed to awaken parts of us which may have become hidden in the hustle of everyday life. We learn ourselves on a very deep level, we learn the true nature of ourselves - not what we wish people to perceive us as, but rather, what we truly are in our heart. 
Recently in my own practice, and just in everyday life, I’ve been contemplating the idea of attachment to the self, something I have consistently come back...


My Daily Practice

My Daily Practice


My home practice has certainly evolved over the years, much of my strength and flexibility has been cultivated at home-by returning to the mat as regularly as I can. Initially it consisted of short 20 or 30 minute sessions, nowadays it's in the region of 2-3 hours daily.

Learning to Realise Your Limits

Learning to Realise Your Limits

About a year ago I was yoga-ing my face off. As in every day. Going for broke. Then something unfortunate happened. I ended up with an injury. Because I did the one thing teachers always tell you not to do. I pushed myself too hard, didn’t listen to my body and tried to go deeper into something which I most definitely wasn't ready for. I’ve always had tight hamstrings-probably naturally, as I’ve never been one for physical activity before I found yoga. So pushing myself down toward the floor during a wide legged forward fold sadly (and deservedly, let’s face...
