BYRON BAY SOHUM YOGA RETREAT

I am really looking forward to our YOGA RETREAT. Nadine Gia from SOHUM COMMUNITY YOGA and I both studied together under the watchful eye of John Ogilvie from Byron Yoga. We are returning to this magical place on Earth to create 4 days of deep connection to the practice of our beloved Yoga. Both Nadine and I have embraced Yoga as a way of life, and have developed dedicated personal practices. Understanding the techniques of Meditation practice, Breath Work, and studying the depths of Yoga Philosophy…and sharing it…is our passion. We can’t wait to share this time with you. ———————– This is what we have in store for our participants: The timetable is full of talented teachers with much expertise and love to share with those going. They include John Ogilvie the founder of Byron Yoga and Tara Fitzgerald founder of Terrafirma Yoga. Seriya from Akshaya Healing will guide us in a Crystal Bowl Sound Healing and a KirtanJam involving chanting, instruments and voice. Rebel Tucker from Yogarebel has a strong foundation in Philosophy and will be running two yoga classes and a Dharma workshop focusing on your life purpose. Wendy Carlson is our remedial massage therapist and healer with extensive knowledge. ———————– I’ll be back teaching #outsideyoga at #lakecathie Sunday 2nd July at 9am. #yogapractice #yogaeverydamnday #yogarebel #yogaretreat #yogasana#pranayama #svadhyaya...
Get Real!

Get Real!

GET REAL! Learn to see things as they are. Remove the filters that you have put in place from your life experiences and see, hear, feel – experience – your life as it really is. Not better. Not worse. Experience events as they are. Experience people as they are. Experience what is…not what you make believe. There is a well-used quote ‘We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.’ Anais Nin, Tomlinson, Steven Covey and others have expanded much on this thought. Essentially, they concur that our perception is shaped by our previous experiences. I agree. Until… Until…we learn to remove the filters and experience things as they are. Until…we peel back the conditioning. Until…we clean our windows of perception, our lenses through which we see the world, our filters which muddy our experiences. Until…we clean up our view on life we will experience things as we are. And…we can learn to see, hear, feel clearly. When we do, we begin to see things as they really are.   Yoga teaches us how.   The practice of Yoga asks us to look within ourselves, to become aware of these filters which have us seeing through eyes of prejudices and preconceived notions – these conditionings are called Samskaras. Over the years I’ve witnessed many people stuck in destructive Samskaras. Indeed, I have had my own to work through. We all do! The lure of the false comfort of Samskaras can be so strong and so convincing that some people construct false realities to bolster their need to keep seeing things as they want them to...

Why I do Yoga

Why do I do yoga? Because it makes me feel good! It really is that simple. However, it goes deeper than just what I do on the mat…more than just the postures (asanas). Yoga is in everything I do…it is my modus operandi. It is how I do my life. The philosophy of yoga – Ashtanga Marga – as written about by Patanjali in The Yoga Sutras – sums up for me how to show up. It aligns with my values and gives me a solid foundation and practices, such as asana, breathing and meditation that create health and wellness. Yoga for me is every minute of every day.  ...
