The five Koshas applied

As a seasoned yogi you will know that in subtle yoga anatomy the body is divided into five layers: Anamaya Kosha – the grossest form of the physical body. Put simply, everything you can touch, including skin and bones. Pranamaya Kosha – the energy body. The breath and the force which causes everything to flow…

Confest

It’s quite remarkable how the past six months have shifted things in my life. It started with my first Ayahuasca journey late last year. A deep insight from Pachamama. From there further signs and tools and wake up calls trickled in – from conversations with friends, understandings from my yoga students, more sacred ceremonies, tantric…

Learning to celebrate 🎉

  Learning to celebrate might just throw the biggest question mark on my Leo friends’ faces. Why does one have to learn to celebrate a birthday? I loved them so much yesterday as they whole-heartedly shared during my birthday circle how they don’t only have a birthday party, but fully indulge in a whole month…

Learning from Aboriginal Elder

It’s been a few weeks now that I’ve spent a weekend in the Australian bush, honoured and privileged to learn some of the ancient dream time stories, ways, laws and ceremonies of this land from an elder Aboriginal mother, grand-mother, healer and medicine woman. Dream-time stories Whilst I’m not going to go into details here…

Once on the southbound highway I crank the music up and start singing. Jason Mraz talks to my heart. Time for long phone conversations as I roll on without traffic. Each town I pass, the memory…

Some-er Yoga just for me

I’m just slowly cranking back up to the 1001 demands of everyday life after the most chillaxing sailing Christmas Holidays. I cannot stress enough how soul-nourishingly good it is to turn off those screens. It’s no new term, but nothing describes it better than ‘disconnect to reconnect’.  Also disconnecting from teaching has refilled me energy…

Busy body, quiet mind

One December many moons ago, one of the things one of my teachers once said stuck with me: “My body is busy, my mind is calm.” It is very different running around like a headless chicken and feeling like one, OR run around doing 101 things at a time as you seem to do in…
