Shiny Song #20

8 Feb

Every year, thousands and thousands of people cast millions of votes in Australian radio network Triple J’s Hottest 100 poll.

The countdown of the results is an Aussie tradition, usually accompanied by barbecues, swimming pools and some very dodgy bets to celebrate Australia Day. I definitely lost money this year.

This tune came in at number one and it has definitely grown on me.

You can hear more of the Hottest 100 on Triple J and this explains how Vance Joy came up with those lyrics…

New Workshops, New Retreat!

17 May

I honestly didn’t think I was going to be able to make it to Melbourne this visit to Australia…

But life has a funny way of working out!

I’ve just announced a delicious weekend program for June 1st and 2nd at the truly gorgeous Gertrude Street Yoga studio in Fitzroy.

stay shiny

I adore this space and had a blast teaching a morning intensive series here last year.

You can find all the details on the Workshops page – we’ve designed it as a choose your own adventure weekend, but I recommend you surrender two days to me and come to EVERYTHING. You’ll feel shiny, juicy and delicious with a new sense of purpose by the end of it all!

I also didn’t think I’d be running another retreat this year, but everyone has been asking for it, so WHY NOT?!

We’ve just locked in a week at a gorgeous space in Ubud, Bali, starting the last week of August.

I’ll be announcing all the delicious details for that here very soon, but in the meantime, here’s a little sample of the gorgeous time we had on the Thai retreat earlier this year on the Bay of Love…

Oh, Sweet Queen City of the Golden South!!

Easing into Humble Warrior

It’s not always easy to return to the place where you began teaching and I had been worried that students who loved my old ways wouldn’t like some of the new stuff. As one long time student said: “It’s still you, just with more “happy juice” – you got me all buzzed in the first 10 minutes, rather than by the end of the class like you used to.”

Makes me feel all fuzzy and excited about what’s to come!

Running around and having fun…

Stretching out to some tunes…

Connecting with fellow yogis…

I’m incredibly grateful to Lila who organised the five morning intensive at Gertrude Street Yoga in Fitzroy. She made that beautiful space into a safe, warm haven for us on those cold mornings and brought together a wonderful group of people. If you haven’t checked out the studio yet, make sure you get along. Every time I walked up the stairs I could feel myself relax and release.  www.gertrudestreetyoga.com.au

As always, huge thanks to Dominique and Anthony, my teachers and the super team at the helm of the Australian Yoga Academy in Prahran, for hosting the weekend sessions. These guys changed my life through their teacher training six years ago and continue to inspire me with their lives and practices (and their gorgeous new baby boy!) It’s so great to be able to come home to that studio and reconnect with students old and new and share what I’ve been doing, off in the world. www.australianyogaacademy.com

 Stay tuned! I’ll post very soon about ways to find cheap flights to Thailand for those of you looking at coming to the next retreat in late February.

Partner Yoga Fun!
