Creating Space, Sweetness and Ease

Creating Space, Sweetness and Ease

Some days feel spactious, they move along so smoothly and effortlessly, whereas other days  feel like an utter slog; you're bangin' up against walls, trying to the door into yourself, the door to your flow.

Since studying yoga I've found it really helpful to understand these opposite states as Sukha and Dukha.

Sukha = open space, joy, ease, sweetness

Dukha = restricted space, suffering, struggle.

Kichari: A Gentle, Nourishing Cleanse

Kichari: A Gentle, Nourishing Cleanse

The idea of ‘detoxing’ can feel overwhelming, since we tend to associate a ‘cleanse’ with hard work, bland foods, complicated regimes and total restriction! The Ayurvedic concept of purification is quite different – no need for an expensive juicer or supplements here!

Rather, a traditional Ayurvedic ‘detox’ centres around three days of warm and nourishing Kichari – a delicious lentil and rice stew that is easy to prepare and an absolute joy to eat.

3 things I am not ashamed to admit about my mental health

3 things I am not ashamed to admit about my mental health

For decades I thought that having less-than-perfect mental health was somehow a sign I was an inadequate human- I was so wrong. But even with all that I know now, the stigma is so strong, I sit here with a lump in my throat as I attempt to share this rather vulnerable note with you.

As many of you know I am passionate about de-stigmatizing mental health, and I want to make it clear that we all have "mental health" and where we sit on that spectrum of mental health may shift day to day... depending on how well we slept, what we have eaten, how much activity we have done and the situations and people we find ourselves interacting with.

Feminine Power: Co-creation, sisterhood & community over competition

Feminine Power: Co-creation, sisterhood & community over competition

The more I dive into my "entrepreneurial journey" the more I feel, I am being called to "reimagine" what business, partnerships and collaborations look like, because the mainstream patriarchal ways just don't work for me.

Working with Carli (who is co-facilitating the Awaken Feminine Power- Winter Solstice Immersion with me next month) we model for one another what we seek in life and business... radical generosity, transparency, deep listening, courage and the holding of a co-created space that enables us each to step into our greatness

The Art of Getting Things Done

Today's v-log is a little random, but maybe less random than it seems.

Most of you know I am self-employed, I teach yoga alongside a host of other gigs, plus I have a young family. Staying organised is non-negotiable for me, given I have so much on my plate!

In February this year, my life changed. My eldest child started school, and what a huge adjustment it's been for the entire family! I had to get serious about my system for getting things done in order to stay on top of my new appointments (drop off and pick ups) and all the new duties required of me as a school mum on top of all my gigs and projects!

Activate Your Human Potential for Joy & Compassion.

Activate Your Human Potential for Joy & Compassion.

How is that our 'human nature' sometimes manifests as harrowing violence, destruction and self-ishness, when it's also in our 'nature' to be deeply loving, joyful and compassionate, acting in the interest of our global community?

In my humble opinion I feel that striving to be our best selves dances a fine line between the ego-motivated fear of not being enough, and embracing our wholeness with a healthy dose of self-compassion to know we are enough, exactly as we are.

We are truly at our best when we live in love and connection, rather than fear and disconnection.

Satya: Truth will set you free.

Satya: Truth will set you free.

Satya, is the second of five yamas (restraints, also referred to as the yogic code of conduct) outlined by Patanjali in the Yoga Sutras. It comes after Ahimsa (non-violence) and means “truthfulness”.

In a world where our major messaging channels, including politicians, media and advertisers often have a very lose commitment to truth-telling, we can often find ourselves struggling with our own relationship to truth, not to mention the confusion in trying to figure out what is true and real within our own hearts and lives.
