Peace, Not War

Ahimsa अहिंसा Been seeing this word being thrown around a lot recently.. Literally, the word translates as non-harming. But Ahimsa is not simply about causing physical harm. It is a practice about liberation (from suffering) and is about attitude of the mind, not just literal acts of violence. It is all-encompassing. Most of us do not participate in violent physical actions - this is the easy bit of the practice, but most of us do throw angry words, thoughts and looks. Words as we know, carry shakti- energy. They can have long and far reaching consequences. When i meet people who are very critical and cynical in their outlook, i often wonder if this is because that is all they themselves rec

Re Treat Yourself

One of the easiest way to travel on your own but not be on your own is to go on a retreat. I guess that is why the industry has boomed stratospherically! I go on one myself every year. It's the annual self-treat that i look forward to and absolutely love every single time! I love it because I've always met GREAT people on these trips, many of whom are still friends, some have grown into buddies. Everyone has the same understanding so there's never any pressure to hang out but the doors are always open. It is so ideal. Retreat locations always have loads of space to go off and just get lost in your book or snooze all day long. Total bliss! Equally, there's plenty to explore and lots to do if

Train With Me

To be honest, I have always maintained that I will not offer teacher training because I have never felt like that seat was for me to take. After 10 years of teaching, I began to feel like perhaps I could offer a bit more to the teaching community, more than the little time I get to share during class. This pull to put something together also started to grow when I started to be approached more and more with teaching questions, advice and mentorship request. I would often leave feeling like I had inadequately answered these questions and it bothered me! So the idea began to grow and fuelled on by Clarissa's encouragement and enthusiasm, this 40 Hour Vinyasa Teaching Immersion materialized las

Something New For A Brand New Day

Today feels like a new day. The kind that feels like another fresh start. After spending 6 weeks in Asia, I have to admit, I found it extremely difficult to adjust to being home in England. My heart is always home in Malaysia, or anywhere in South East Asia. But i think mostly, the 10 days in India, visiting projects with Yoga Gives Back, opened a door inside of me that flung me off my path and left me feeling a little spaced out! I panicked a little when i still felt disconnected after 3 weeks of being home, despite being so warmly received back at home, with friends, colleagues & students. I just didn't feel like myself. And i mean this literally. I almost want to call myself lazy...uninte

"If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them."
