I Bend So I Don’t Break

Both life and yoga are full of challenges. No-one knows what is around the corner and we need to be flexible in so many ways to be able to cope with the things that happen on and off the mat. Even if you haven't physically bent today, I can bet that figuratively you have. We [...]

Yoga for Truth….to find it, to live it, to set you free

  truth noun the quality or state of being true. Sometimes we bottle things up inside. Those feelings and words we want to express get buried into ourselves and we can't find a way to get them out. Have you ever had mouth ulcers, a sore neck or a thyroid problem? Have you ever felt it hard [...]

It really is the BIG question.....how can me being a part of this world make it a better place? What is my purpose and how can [...]
