Purging - that time I thought I was giving birth

Purging - that time I thought I was giving birth


I never really thought about purging as a means of working through psychological crap build up until I experienced it. I’ve always been a firm believer that whatever presents itself in the body has always originated in the mind. Resentment, guilt, fear - these types of states of mind can breed illness in the mind, progressing to the body. Going deep in any kind of spiritual practice, has long been a way to purge emotional blockages and move forward. Deep rooted issues from our past can hold us stuck until we begin to work through them and let them go....


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...

Re-connecting With Your Inner Child

With all of this week’s astrology pointing toward having fun and living in our own world of dreams, it really made me stop and think-when was the last time I really embraced my inner child?

Learning to do something difficult aids in...

We all have days where we're not in the mood. Tired, overworked, racked with guilt that you haven't moved your body in a week (or so).... Excuses are another way of entering into self destruction mode. Nobody is too busy for 10mins a day, now is the time to change your habits. Here are my tips for establishing a regular practice and making each time on the mat count toward making you stronger, calmer and more aligned with your true self.

First thing to note; now I'm sure you've heard this one before, but-stepping onto the mat is the hardest part....


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. My flexibility has not been a walk in the park and still something I work on tirelessly as Im not naturally flexible. Same goes for strength. They have both evolved gradually over time and I find my body able for things now which I never thought possible-which has taught me never to...
