A Tribute to Feminine Energy

It is international Women’s day March 8th. During the month we pay tribute to women by focussing on tapping into our feminine energy. At this point it is important to know that Feminine energy doesn’t necessarily represent the female human body and Masculine energy doesn’t necessarily represent the male human body. Furthermore, each of us […]

Show the Love

The month of February is known for many things. One of the most common is Valentine’s Day, which has been taken over by commercial interests around the world to sell more chocolates, stuffed toys, greeting cards, jewellery, and to fill restaurants with people pursuing romance. Rather than be turned off by the gross commercialization of […]

Living a Life of Abundance

The end of one year and start of another is always a time of reflection on the year that was and the lessons we learnt along the way. It is also time for resolutions and a time to share good wishes for the upcoming year. Our wish for 2017 is a life of abundance for […]

Be Grateful and Be Happier

Quoting Winnie the Pooh (A.A. Milne) may seem out of place; our advice, don’t scoff but take a look at some of his wonderful quotes – you will be inspired! This month we are talking about Gratitude. Recently someone sent me a link to an article in the New York Times titled: “Choose to be […]

Living a Fulfilled Life

It’s very easy to live a full life, to go through the motions of living, without being fulfilled. I am as guilty as anyone else. Let me explain. Some years ago (read that as many) I sat down to reflect on my life. I had attained the items I thought I wanted to be happy […]

Recently, at the beginning of a class I was asked to close my eyes and set an intention for the upcoming session. At this stage, I was wondering, “What have I got myself into?” – this wasn’t new to me but I wasn’t attending a yoga class – I was attending an all day workshop […]

Faster Isn’t Always Better: The Value of Slowing Down

This is the age of speed dating, speed yoga, and, yes, even speed meditation. It’s a time of rush-rush-rush in the attempt to do more, sooner, faster. But there doesn’t seem to be a great deal of evidence that packing in more actually achieves more. If squeezing ever more into your day isn’t enabling you […]

Taking 100% Responsibility for Your Life

Part of our vacation in July, was spent at the Idea Fitness Convention in Los Angeles. We were surrounded by some of the biggest names in fitness and industry professionals from around the world. While we came away with many ideas, many of which you will see progressively introduced to the studio, one of the […]

The Power of Acceptance

Acceptance When we don’t accept an undesired event, it becomes Anger; when we accept it, it becomes Tolerance. When we don’t accept uncertainty, it becomes Fear; when we accept it, it becomes Adventure. When we don’t accept other’s bad behaviour towards us, it becomes Hatred; when we accept it, it becomes Forgiveness. When we don’t […]

Brahmacharya ( Non Excess )

The Holy month of Ramadan is just a few days away. It is a month of introspection, devotion, self-discipline and fasting. The Arabic word for “fasting” (sawm) literally means “to refrain” – and it means not only refraining from food and drink, but from evil actions, thoughts, and words. Fasting reminds us of how fortunate […]
