That floating feeling

We live in a world of so much sensory stimulation, it’s no wonder we all feel agitated and often overwhelmed. Wouldn’t it be nice to float in silence, stillness and darkness for a while.  There’s a Minecraft video series my son is far too fond of and the man’s voice grates on me like nails scratching a chalkboard (for those … Read More

Dive into the deep end

Dive into life

Let’s play semantics (yeh, my favourite game) and so be clear that I don’t mean ‘go off the deep end’! That would be losing control of your emotions, getting angry and irrational – going crazy. I NEVER do that!! I don’t even mean ‘jump in at the deep end’ – because the act of jumping implies just that little bit … Read More

When I was in Year 6 (it could have been Year 5 or 7) I wrote a poem that was published in the Australian Girl Guides magazine. It was my very first published piece. Woo Hoo! It was called FREEDOM and it was full of idealism for a better world that only 11 year-old-girls, flush with naïve enthusiasm and the … Read More

Breathe. In. And out. In. And out. So everybody is still alive after the holidays – that’s great. Last Friday I published the lazy guide to being enough in 2015 – most of you were too lazy to bother reading – perfectly understandable really as I haven’t torn myself too far away from the pool or the yoga mat over … Read More

christmas_mandala_by_manndacity-d89mswb

There are some things I know for sure about balance. It isn’t easy, and yet it is our natural state. It doesn’t have to be equal, and yet it is about finding equilibrium. It isn’t black and white – it’s only in the richness of colour and contrast that we can perceive a beautiful pattern of balance. We can get … Read More

Tis’ the season – how yoga gets you into the holiday spirit

yoga christmas

While we don’t use the term ‘holiday season’ so much where I’m here in Australia (we’re more likely to use the festive ‘season’ or just plain old ‘Christmas’), in North America, it’s the ‘politically correct,’ universal term.Never discuss politics and religion happens to be a sensible creed I should follow—especially on a yoga website, but I don’t think calling it … Read More

It’s Halloween and I’m not scared. I’m not secretly scared that I’m slipping under the seductive spell of alcohol. I was a bit frightened, prior to #ocsober, but I’ve faced that demon down. Said BOO! to a bad habit, because that’s what it was. I read this post (full of some really interesting research) this week about addiction being overcome … Read More

#parentingpeace

Just a minute. You only need a moment. Oh God what you wouldn’t give for just one moment of peace right now! Whether it’s 60seconds to catch your breath, close your eyes and calm down or a quick pick-me-up activity, snatching time, pushing pause, can work wonders. Freeze frame the whirl around you and feel the difference. Here’s how. Apply … Read More

Namaste yinyang_edited-1

This post is by way of saying ‘hello’ for a Friday (or whatever day you are reading this), but something more as well. It’s an offering of peace, an acknowledgement that we are all the same, that we are all one. Namaste. Our everyday hello’s and hi’s are often polite, passing greetings, flippant even, uttered with ‘how are you?’ questions, … Read More

springgreen-Hose-by-Suzanne-Tucker

When I was a kid my parents made me hose the lawn for half an hour a day.  This was when using sprinklers was banned (or at least restricted) and having a lush lawn was a sign of suburban success, or at least of keeping up with the Joneses in some small (and extremely cheap) way. And there’s nothing like … Read More

sunrise sky

The sun rises, and later on it sets and then it rises again. In between is life, or OH-OH!! I’ll take life any day (or night). I’ll take the sun and the stars and the moon too. I’m off to Japan, the land of the rising sun (pinch me I’m on holidays, pinch me again). Did I mention I’m on holidays! … Read More

Tis the season for excess, balance hardly comes into it – right? While we make merry, we can make sure we avoid hangovers, of the headache, health and financial varieties, with a bit of balance. As usual it is not an exact thing – we don’t have to balance our egg with our nog equally, just try for some celebratory middle ground. … Read More
