Being True to Yourself

At dinner last week, the conversation got onto the books that impacted ones thinking or philosophy. Fountainhead by Ayn Rand was a book that I read at the age of 15; it has stayed with me ever since. I was surprised (because it is a heavy read) that one of the other guests had a […]

Finding your comfort zone

Our Comfort Zone – what is it? The words are obvious. It is “that place” where we feel comfortable, right? So why can’t we stay there longer? Why does it consistently change? Why are we pushed out of that zone when it is comfortable and cosy? I started asking these questions when I began practicing […]

Embrace Change

Embrace Change Change is good, and we either crave or dread it. It built, and continues to build, civilizations. It led you to where you are right now. It could come as a result of a decision you have made (a self-imposed change), or it could just come out of the blue and catch you […]

What Is Your Why

What is your Why Why did you get up in the morning? Why did you eat what you ate? Why did you wear what you wore? Why did you go to work in the morning? Why are you here? These were the questions posed in the opening sequence of a movie I watched recently. They […]

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.

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 […]

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 […]

Setting an Intention and Dedicating your practice

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 […]
