frozen-7

At the moment I’m being tortured (or is that too strong a word?) to the tune of ‘Let it go’ from Disney’s hit movie Frozen. (Ok – I know it’s a common complaint, but here I stand, well write anyway). My torturer is very cute though (as I’m sure yours is) – in my case our four-year-old son is rather … Read More

I tried so very hard to forget the above hairstyle! I almost forgot that I was someone before I was a Mum. I spent so long trying to be a Mum. When I was trying to be a Mum, I almost forgot that I was still someone. I made my identity out of being an infertile woman. That sucked! I … Read More

Gratitude and Grace

The toilet roll needs changing, again. And again, and again, and again, and again, and again. Every. Single. Time.     The clothes are lying on the bathroom floor, again. And again, and again, and again, and again. Every. Single. Time.     The shoes are left where I’ll trip over them, again. And again, and again, and again, and … Read More

Finding-Strength-and-Power-in-the-Warrior-Poses

The Warrior (Virabhadrasana) series can say a lot about your yoga and your life. Not that yoga is a competition or life a battle that we need to fight (and win), but that real strength is found through focus and balance and standing firm for what you believe in. For women especially, the Warrior poses can be strong asanas—we women … Read More

Growing up, inside out

You know that saying by Elisabeth Stone about the feeling as a parent that your heart is walking around outside your body – well right now part of my heart is in Canberra and we can’t see or talk to her for three and half days. It hurts a bit. Of course she’ll be fine, our Miss Yin, on the … Read More

Writing-a-list-1024x692

This is hard to do – confine my faults to 50 words or less – abbreviate a long list of shortcomings lest I bore you even more, or go completely to town on myself. I’ve wasted 35 words already (make that 40)! Can I start again? You can count from NOW. I yell – my worst trait Over-dramatisation *the hypen … Read More

Have you looked up lately? Venus and Jupiter have been hanging out together, apparently closer than they’ve been since something like 2BC and you can spot them up there, just over the horizon, even though they are xxxxxxxxx miles away. (Venus and Jupiter are actually about 670,130,000km apart, even though they’ve been looking only half-a-moon diameter apart. Our closet planetary … Read More

You love yoga, know that you are growing in your yoga journey, and you want to grow more. A yoga journal can be wonderful tool to document your development, help you get more out of your practice, and help you flourish in life too. During teacher training, we were asked to keep a journal and it proved invaluable in recording … Read More

So this is not a fire safety instruction you should follow, but it is what I feel liking doing – just stopping, dropping, flopping – feeling a bit burnt out by the first half of the year. Burnt out with blogging – as my efforts aren’t exactly setting the world alight. Burnt out by the rush and stress that is the … Read More

You may think you need the shock of bad (or very good) news to flick the switch on a new perspective. Like a reboot for your life. Obviously very good news is always welcome – and that flood of serotonin (the happy hormone) and possibly oxytocin (the natural love drug) in your system is enough to give you a whole … Read More

10 ways to create your own yoga retreat

Reading and yoga nook

There is something pretty special about going away on a yoga retreat. I’m recently back from my annual retreat in the World Heritage listed mountain rainforest near where I’m lucky to live – two nights, barely 44 hours, but long enough to relax, refresh and rejuvenate. Bliss. From brief breaks away to week-long (or longer) retreats in exotic locales, a … Read More

Sometimes you smack hard up against what you’ve missed out on, and even though you thought you were ok with missing out, turns out you’re not really. I’m not talking about the childhood trauma of missing out on the netball team or not getting picked for the part of Dorothy and having to play the Wicked Witch of the East … Read More

Tears (1)

When was the last time you cried? Oh I’m sorry if I bring you back to a bad place with this question (presuming they weren’t happy tears). Hopefully they were. Maybe you cried watching the news (because there are far too many things to cry over in this world). Perhaps your tears sprung out of universal humanity for the suffering … Read More

Miss Yin mid-flight

I don’t know whether it’s just me, but I wonder why when we become parents, and particularly as we start to age (well we’re doing that our whole lives!) we start envisaging the future for our kids instead of for ourselves. Naturally we are going to have dreams for our children, what parent wouldn’t – and we are going to … Read More
