Reuniting Body, Breath & Mind


Theme for Term Two

Sometimes, bringing a term theme together works out better than could be anticipated, and the term we are finishing this week, is one such term. To take two sequences, learn the poses and transitions of each, and then link the two; well that is rather a challenge – for me and for you. But, it […]

Year 17

2020 Yoga in Plenty

Today is the 4th day of 2020, and the Saturday morning Yogi’s were back on their mats today.  What a great start to the yoga year. I was reminded that I hadn’t disclosed the theme for the first term.  With   encouragement from the 9am’ers, I am inspired to do so. Right there in the centre […]

Let Yoga Blossom

Yoga is not a practice for hoarding; it isn’t a possession as such. Let your practice of Yoga go – let it blossom; let it be what you need it to be.  Don’t keep it cooped up – same same………….it will go stale if you do. If you haven’t time to add something new to […]


Giving homework is to encourage you to practice your Yoga at home; it is neither a threat nor challenge. When you feel like practicing Yoga, how do you get started, what do you do first, how do you decide which postures to practice, how do you end the practice? First Give yourself permission to practice […]
