upcoming retreats, what i'm loving, reads .....

In a world so focused on economics it's important to have tools to come back to the heart, to help us stay connected to our truth and to strengthen our mind. Yoga and meditation gives us these tools.

A retreat is such a nourishing journey. People arrived on our NYE & Summer Yoga Cleanse & Pamper Retreats tired and out of sync and left with glowing skin, shinning eyes, energised, strong, feeling connected within and inspired to continue their yoga practice and healthy lifestyle.

What I'm Loving

It's so important to read what inspires and nourishes the soul. At the moment am getting lots of insights from 'Yoga the tree of life' by B.K.S Iyengar full of practical insights on living yoga well.

I'm also reading 'Health Healing & Beyond: Yoga and the living tradition of T. Krishnamacharya' by T.V.K. Desikachar on the life and yoga journey of the teacher of the renowned 20th century yoga teachers B.K.S Iyengar (Iyengar Yoga), Patthabi Jois (Ashtanga Yoga) T.K.V Desikachar (Viniyoga) amongst others. The book answers a lot questions you may have about the history, tradition and teachings of yoga.

The therapauetic yoga postures as detailed in B.K.S Iyengar's book 'Yoga The Path to Holistic Health' are simple to follow and offer remedy & relief to many common physical and mental conditions such as high blood pressure, stress, anxiety, back & neck pain, etc. Wonderful.

Life is too short to miss out on some outdoors practice. Over the holidays we went camping and it was so beautiful to practice on the grass under the trees with all the animals flittering around. Breathing the fresh sea air directly into the lungs and feeling earthed. At home we have a small timber deck in the garden to practice on. The stillness that comes from simply gazing at the green colour of a leaf is so nourishing. Stretching the arms overhead I reach the soft leaves of the Poinciana tree and feel a part of all that is...
