Words have tremendous power, and whether their effects are positive or negative depends on how we use them.
I cant express how powerful writing is , especially free form to release negative energy from our hearts and minds. 
Writing about traumatic or stress full events has huge effects on physical and emotional health.
I am not the only one who believes this.
That is why diaries and journals have been kept for generations.
There is also so much scientific proof to back up this theory,

In a society that values 'doing', it is so important to remember the value of rest.
Todays mantra:
'I listen to the messages my mind, body and spirit give me and rest when i am feeling out of balance.'

Raise your chin and throw your arms straight up in the air just as athletes do when they experience victory.
Breathe there a few full breaths until you feel uplifted.
Repeat this power pose till you feel a shift.
Try for a few weeks and let me know how you feel.
Here, we are enabling our minds to change our bodies ,and our bodies to change our minds for the better.

We cannot live this Life alone and feel fulfilled.
Today, think of someone who has allways supported you and stood by you, take a moment to thank them♡

Tuesday, 13 November 2018





We maintain our 'world' with our Internal Talk.
We renew it, kindle it with life, we uphold it.
Not only that, but we choose our paths as we talk to ourselves.
Thus, we repeat the same choices over and over again.
We can stop our habitual internal descriptions of ourselves and our world by stopping the Negative Internal Dialogue.
Today:
-Notice your internal conversations.
-Stop in mid sentence and go blank when you say negative or hurtfull words.
-You will notice within a few seconds, your internal commentator will make more comments, living out another stage play with friends, 'enemies', or both.
When you catch this happening again, go blank..again.
Exhale.
Once you learn to 'go blank' you start to understand your dialogue and maybe, even, find silence.
At first you might hear a buzzing or even get a headache , these are just subtle vibrations of your physiological organism.
Simply move beyond these vibrations and teach yourself to understand the stance of your internal dialogue.
This can be life changing!
And challenging i know, but so worth it.
Once you are able to spend time 'blanking'thoughts you will find silence for a few seconds at a time.
I know this can be very challenging.
Only then will you start to trust and understand the ideas and desires you find occuring to you immediately after you've been there.
These perceptions will come from your direct Knowing♡ 
Mental Health , i know is a big term and a heavy one at that wouldnt you agree?But it does includes our emotional, psychological, and social wellbeing.
It affects how we feel, think and behave. It also determines how we make choices and interact with others. It is important at every stage of life, from adolescence through adulthood.
The term 'mental health' is sometimes used to mean an 'absence' of a mental disorder.
Mental health can affect physical health and every aspect of our daily life and sadly, the ability to enjoy life.
It brings up a lot of Shame for many sufferers because they feel so alone.
In all my offerings i encourage students to observe , observe, observe and listen.
We have learnt through deep meditations to understand these are residues and coping mechanisms weve adopted throughout our lives.
As you breath whatever you are feeling, sad, angry, terrified, unsafe, regret, is encouraged to be released on the exhales.Throughout the years we have learnt to watch these residues, impulses, coping mechanisms and states of being as passing...observations that allow for bigger breaths.
Mala Meditations can also help to deepen your awareness, so can gemstone therapy and acupuncture .

Triang Mukhaikapada Paschimottanasana
Three Limb Intense Stretch

Desk jobs damage our health, when we sit for long hours behind our computers,
hunching over our laptops we put a lot of pressure on our spine and mostly our abdominal muscles.
Our abdominal muscles protect our internal organs and provide support for our spine.
This pose is one of the intermediate yoga poses.
It is a great pose to practice after a long trip or a challenging day in the office because of its many benefits.

Benefits:
-Regulates the digestive system.
-Makes the spine more flexible
--Stimulates and tones the abdominal organs.
-Helps to reduce constipation and flatulance.
-Improves the flexibility of the hamstrings, knee joints and hips.
-Helps to reduce swelling in the legs.
-Assists with symptoms of high blood pressure, sinusitis, and infertility.
-Enhances liver, kidney and colon function.

Somatic learning has taught me what it means to feel both at home in my body and more fully alive in my life.
I came to this work, feeling awkward about my body and my impressions, and dare i say, my expectations.
Throughout the years i have learnt to be ever more present in each moment in my physical, emotional and spiritual experiences.
I still return to those awkward moments..but today, i have learnt to return to myself over and over again...with the ability to do so ever more gently, with deeper faith.

Our physical bodies tell our Stories, One by One and they always tell the Truth.
If we choose to listen.
I choose to listen and i teach others to do the same.
3 tips on how to live and go through physical and emotional pain in the inner and outer realm:
-Deep Breathing-
Inhale as you hold the breath in for 5 to 10 seconds (longer if you can),then exhale.
Do this for 3 sets /10 x each.
-Ground your feet, lift the toes of the floor and set them back down.
Spread the toes (you can wrap a tissue around every toe intially to separate them,)
Do this a few times.
-Throughout your day ,whenever you feel overwhelmed, in grief or off balance , take 3 minutes to connect to your breath and ground your feet.

Yoni Mudra     (Generates a calm state of Mind)
Yoni /the womb
Mudra/energetic seal

Tuesday, 26 September 2017

My latest on @naturalhighmag.
Mudras set#1♡
A Mudra is a hand gesture, an asana (posture) for the hands.Throughout history, hand gestures have been used by all civizations and religions.From the priests and priestesses of ancient Egypt to Romans,Persians, Mayans, Gigians, Turks and many more.The word Mudra means 'seal', because a mudra creates an impression on the subtle body like a letter that is sealed with hot wax.Yoga mudras are symbolic gestures often practiced by the hands and fingers.
They facilitate the flow of energy in the subtle body and enhance one's journey within.
If you are new to Yoga the above can seem a bit confusing, as to which Mudra to use and what is the difference?Different areas of the hands are connected to specific areas in the body and the brain.
So when we place our hands in yoga mudras, we stimulate different areas of the brain and create a specific energy circuit in the body.By doing this we generate a specific state of mind.
The universe is made of 5 elements and each finger on our hands is representative of one of these five elements.
The thumb represents the universal consciousness and fire.
The index finger represents air and individual consciousness.
The middle finger represents connection.
The ring finger represents earth.
The little finger represents the element of water.
When these elements are not in balance we can experience disease in the body.
Mudras are a way of creating balance  within all these elements 
Dhyana Mudra/ Meditation Seal

  1. Sit down in a meditative pose such as the Sukha Asana (Easy Seated Pose).
  2. Ensure that your back is held straight and your chest and head held up high..
  3. Rest your hands on your knees with your palms facing upwards
  4. Bring your hands to Dhyana Mudra, by resting them, upturned, at your navel with the right hand on top.
  5. Bring the thumbs to touch together at the tips , hold throughout your meditation.
  6. Benefits:Aids concentration balances the right and left sides of the body,quiets the mind and assists in healing.

'I stretch to new Limits from the Inner Power at the deep center of my Self.'
My latest on Natural High Magazine 
For seasoned practioners all yoga poses feel the same to us. 
We will neither like them nor dislike them, just accept them calmly for what they are. 
However, it's hard to ignore the visceral reaction that some poses illicit. Revolved triangle (Parivrtta Trikonasana) has got to be one of yoga's least popular poses (im not joking). 
Its combination of deep twisting, hamstring stretching, heart opening, and precarious balance push a lot of people's buttons including mine.Which is why i practice it a few times a week.Because its benefits are amazing.

'Allign my intentions with the Stars and all that lies within this Form.
Monitor my Heartbeat which Echos in Time with Earth.
Allow my breath to be the drum inside connencting me to the Sky.'

































I often get asked the question 'What is your Dream?'
My Dream is to inspire you to land in your Life..to be good to You and to your Loved Ones.
To your neighbours, to your communities and societies.
To have these honest, clear hard conversations that allow Truth to lead.
I would love to inspire as many people as i can to practice, meditate and be clear together.
i can only wish through my work to uplift the frequency of all those i come in contact with . <3

As a yoga teacher i am allways seeking  to find physical,mental,spiritual balance and harmony in my daily life.
All balancing poses provide an opportunty to experience the dynamic nature of balance.

Hanumanasana -monkey god
Hanumanasana  is all about great acts and fearlessness.The pose is named after an Indian deity
called Hanuman who showed his loyalty and devotion towards the King Rama of ancient India by helping him to find his wife Sita.
Hanuman made a few giant leaps across the lands to show the king his love and loyalty.
This pose symbolizes the power of devotion and leaps of faith,which is exactly what we need to accomplish it .
We should not just stretch our legs but also bring devotion into our practice.
Hanumanasana teaches us to overcome obstacles and do what seems almost impossible.

Kneel on the floor.Take a big step forward with your left leg and curl the toes of the back foot under.
Place your fingertips on the floor.
Straighten your left leg and draw muscularly from your back foot into your pelvis to square the hips.
Maintain the engagement of the foot and calf muscles by spreading your toes and spreading through the ball of the big toe.Walk your hands closer to your hips .
Keep the muscles of both legs engaged and lower your pelvis to the floor.
Lengthen from the core of the pelvis up through the top of your head.

Kneeling Pose Bhujrasana
Kneeling is either very easy or completely impossible.
If you are flexible and dont have any knee issues, there is nothing to it ..you can sit back on your heels anytime.
If you are tighter or have mild knee or ankle problems ,kneeling is literally impossible, because it hurts too much.
Almost allways,pain in the knees is a sign that something is going wrong , and must be avoided.
However , correctly kneeling is one of the best things you can to help bad knees and ankles, you just have to know what you are doing.
Kneel on the floor.
Bring your legs and feet close together.
Keep your lower legs engaged by pressing the tops of your toes into the floor.
Reest your hands on your thighs.
Lengthen through the sides of your body and bring your shoulder blades onto your back to open your chest.
Draw your lower back in and extend up through your spine.

Ustrasana/Camel Pose
Camel Pose and backbends like it can be physically challenging and benefitial.
Emotionally they can create a sense of vulnerability we usually shy away from.
Ustrasana, is just like a Camel journeying through the Sahara- it requires stamina, endurance and a commitment to inner awarness.
While the pose is a journey, when you do arrive to your unique location after crossing the Sahara,
it is  totally worth it emotionally , mentally and physically .

Kneel on the floor with your thighs parallel and rest your palms on your hips.
Point your feet back and press toenails into floor.
Inhale and take your thighs backwards.
On the next exhalation, scoop your tailbone to lengthen your lower back.
 Inhale and extend from your pelvis through your head.
Exhale and reach back to place your right hand on your right heel,.Repeat with yourleft hand.
Rooting the tailbone down,bring your pelvis forward
Keep your neck elongated.
Slide your hands down the soles of your feet.
Remain in this position for a few breaths
Exhale, powerfuly root down through your shins into the floor,
and lift from behind your heart.
Keep your head back as you come up.
Rest by sitting on your heals.

Simhasana  Lion Pose
'Whenever i feel blue ..i start Breathing again.'

We use our voices to communicate.
We can whisper, speak, sing or scream and shade our expressions with many nuances.
When we are nervous, scared, happy or sad, others hear it in our voice.
Our voices reflect not only our state of mind but the state of our nervous system.
Whenever i feel uncomfortable tension in my throat i practice Simhasana.
It frees my voice as it releases constrictions from the throat area.
And my entire body reminding me that the tension in my voice is a manifestation of deep seated emotions.
By cultivating  the essence of a leaping roaring lion i give shape to unexpressed emotions and release them.
Try Simhasana  when you are feeling anxious or angry ..or when you havent expressed yourself the way you wanted.
Youll find yourself happier, more grounded and even lighter both  emotionally and physically.
Kneel on the floor.
Point your toes and sit back on your heels.
Keep your face ,jaw and eyes relaxed.Rest your hands on your thighs
Lean your torso forward and place your fingertips on the floor.
Bring your gaze to the point between the eyebrows.Open your mouth wide and stretch your tongue out as far as possible 
Inhale deeply.On your next exhalation let out an audible and long sigh.
Stretch your arms out straight and stiffen your fingers.
Repeat for 3 times than relax.

Thank YELPAntwerpen for the mention and this picture.
In some Yogic circles it is traditional to perform 108 sun salutations upon
the changing of seasons.
First day of summer,winter solstice, and autumnal equinoxes.
Done in large groups and often as an "offering".
An offering of Peace or Unity.
We use the performing of the sun salutations to recharge our Soul.
There are so many beautifull meanings to the 108 symbol..
From the 108 Upanishads comprimising Indiam Philosophy to
*108 being the number of names for Shiva.
*108 being the number of names for Buddha.
*108 being the number of beads in a Catholic rosary to a Tibetan mala..
*Stages of the Soul -Atman goes through 108 stages on the Journey.
*Desires-It is said there are 108 earthly desires in mortals.
*Lies-It is said that there are 108 lies that humans tell.
*Delusion-It is said that there 108 human delusions or forms of ignorance.
*Time-Some say there are 108 feelings with 36 related to the past, 36 related to the future and 36 related to the present.
*Sanskrit Alphabet-has 54 letters each has a masculine and feminine aspect.54x2=108.
*Dance:There 108 forms of dance in Indian traditions..and so forth.

Bhujangasana /Cobra Posture
I rise up from the center of my Being to meet life with an open Heart..'

Stressed out ?Sick of that tight, achy back? Then this pose is one you should give a try!
it is significantly usefull at relieving discomfort in the muscles of the back,
neck and abdomen.Furthermore, a little time spent in cobra pose can go a long way in alleviating stress, anxiety and depression.
In Sanskrit "Bhujanga" means serpent or snake and "asana" means "pose" hence the english term , "cobra pose".
This invigorating backbend was named such because Bhujangasana  reflects the posture of a cobra that has its hood raised.

Lie on your belly. Bring your forehead to the floor.Bend your elbows, place your palms near the lower ribs, and keep your lower arms perpendicular to the floor.
Exhale, press down with your hands, lengthen through the side body, and lift the head of your arm bones up and away from the floor.
Draw your shoulder blades onto your back.
Press all ten toenails down and draw muscularly from your feet up into the core of  your pelvis.
Anchor your tailbone down.
On your next inhale, press your hands down and lengthen from the waistline up into the armpits.
Lift your torso up and pin the heads of your arm bones back.
From the core of your pelvis extend up the spine through the crown of the head.
Press your knuckles down.Hold for a few breaths.
Exhale , release, and rest on your belly.
Namaste !
