I am an absolutely impatient yogi and probably impatient everything else too. ūüėČ This past few weeks I have decided to challenge myself to perfect my form on just one Asana and I can’t wait for my body to get there yet. Since I have made up my mind to overcome this, suddenly a lot...

Ah the life of a yogi.. It may seem chill, full of herbal tea and enriched with chia seeds, but in actual fact we face real problems.. An average day on the mat.. -You wakeup early,  bundle on every layer of your ethnic hippy cloth only to reach the mat and have to de-robe yourself...

9 people, 1 puppy and some sweaty limbs later and I had experienced my first contact dance session. We started slow and just free flowed into the music.

My ego is pestering me. Since I gave myself this challenge to conquer Chaturanga I find my mind telling me to succeed and never give up until instructed! We have all had this in yoga. Sweat dripping into your eyes and you blindly look around the room to see who is going to give up...

This morning in class I found myself struggling. We have all been there. All I wanted to do was Balasana, childs pose. I wasnt even tired i just felt weak in my muscles and my mind meandered pointlessly.I was resistant. I tried to keep the mantra “just 2 more breaths” circulating in my mind. It...

Okay so I have never dedicated myself to a specific asana before, particularly one that I don’t like. I think this month will give me the challenge I need. I really want to experiment and see if I can maintain my own motivation. Firstly I think I have to start mentally as there has been...
