What a difference a week makes…

25 Nov

I am absolutely LOVING being back in Asia!!

I have spend the last week and a bit going on loads of dives off the coast of Koh Phi Phi in Thailand. Being underwater always reminds me of how insignificant I am in the big scheme of things – and of how much I just don’t know or understand. All those colourful, amazing creatures…

There is something incredibly meditative about being under the sea. Nothing but the sound of your own breath, forcing yourself to slow down, observe and be exquisitely aware of your own body and your surroundings. Truly delicious. 

One of my yoga students was sent this piece – She’s not sure where it comes from, so I can’t attribute, but it definitely hit my inbox at the perfect time. 

Do what you love, and do it often. 
If you don’t like something, change it. 
If you don’t like your job, quit. 
If you don’t have enough time, stop watching TV. 
If you are looking for the love of your life, stop; 
they will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love. 
Stop over analyzing, life is simple. All emotions are beautiful. 
When you eat, appreciate every last bite. 
Open your mind, arms, and heart to new things and people, we are united in our differences. 
Ask the next person you see what their passion is, and share your inspiring dream with them. 
Travel often; getting lost will help you find yourself. 
Some opportunities only come once; seize them. 
Life is about the people you meet and the things you create with them, so go out and start creating. 
Live your dream, and wear your passion. Life is short. 
Keep your eyes fixed on the sun.

Have a gorgeous week!

Something to aspire to!

Just have to share this amazing clip…Take breakdancing, add some yoga, phenomenal flexibility and incredible control and you have Arthur Cadre.

Oh, to be able to do a one handed handstand. In full padmasana. And dance.

Sigh…

Preparing to leave…

I’m in pack up mode!

It’s actually quite a sad time: while I’m excited to be heading off on my next adventure, I have really enjoyed this one. 

Teaching students for a week or month at a time is lovely, but I’ve been able to make some wonderful connections with my students here over six months. Watching them really anchor into their yoga and reap the benefits is one of  the main reason I teach! 

That said, I have a lot of students coming to play with me in Thailand over the summer! It will be great to continue the journey with them there – without the distractions of work and stress, your practice becomes the main focus and expands beautifully…

Hit me up for details if you want to come and play!

In the meantime, enjoy your week…Here’s a little something to dance to 😉
