Yin Yoga: Knowing Thyself (Plus a 40 minute at-home sequence)

Oh Yin Yoga, you are delicious…. I did my second Yin Yoga Teacher Training recently and I am always reminded how amazing it is when I slow down, be still and become aware. This then allows me to receive the gifts of being able to watch (my stuff) and listen (to the wisdom within). Have you practised Yin before? I love love love how I feel, both when practising and teaching. My Yin practice enables me to reconnect with and remember that peaceful place within, and it’s from that place that I can discover deeper parts within myself and become …

Reconnecting with Sound: Lessons from the Native American Flute

The more I walk down this path of consciousness, expansion and heart opening, the more I reconnect with sound, vibration, music 🎶 I am currently learning to play the Native American Flute, which will no doubt start to show up in some of my offerings eventually. This instrument is mesmerising and touches me deeply… Here’s what this beautiful sound healing instrument has reminded me of and shown me so far… 🌀 I am sound. I am vibration. Sound and music are the language of the soul. I can’t understand it intellectually, but I can feel it and experience the resonance. …

Where Do I “Fit” In?

Where do I “fit” In? This is the question I asked myself for a very long time, ever since I was in school. It became clear to me many years ago that I was “different.” At least that’s how my mind perceived me to be (perpetuating the separation). . I did my fair share of partying, drinking and taking drugs back in the day. But after a while it started to get old and this highlighted to me how different my interests and aspirations started to become to my closest friend groups at the time. . While others were working …

I Remember You (Women from all Walks of Life)

I remember you. You’re the mother whose kids have grown up, and you’ve spent most of your life making others happy, losing yourself, but now taking the time to find yourself… I remember you. You’re the hardworking corporate professional that lives a high stress lifestyle and can’t find time for self care… I remember you. You’re the placid, soft spoken angel that works at the local cafe, dreaming about being a Reiki healer… I remember you. You’re the young mother who gives everything to her kids, her family and lives each day as the glue that holds everything together for …

Yin Yoga: Slow Down, Ground and Reconnect with Yourself (Plus a 20 minute at-home sequence)

I love Yin Yoga!! Although it took me a while to realise this. Have you practised Yin before?? When I first tried a couple of yin classes, I thought I didn’t like it. I walked out thinking, “this is too slow and boring, I want to move!”  (clearly I didn’t get it!!) I didn’t practice Yin for many months after that and just practiced Vinyasa and Embodied Flow for a while. Then one day I decided to go back to Yin. I found myself dropping into a deeper place within me, and I left the class feeling floaty, calm, blissful and …

Gratitude – The Language of the Heart

Eckhart Tolle says, “If the only prayer you ever say is ‘thank you’, that will be enough.” There is something powerful about living from a place of gratitude. Being eternally grateful and showing gratitude is like speaking the language of the heart. Gratitude is a reminder of how fortunate we are and how magnificent life is. It puts things into perspective and has the power to shift the entire state of our being; emotionally, mentally, physically, energetically, etc. A moment of stress, frustration or annoyance can transform into a state of contentment, happiness and deep appreciation for the endless things …

Lucy’s Women’s Circle Story

Women’s circles came into my life at a time where I was really exploring what it meant and felt like to be part of something larger than myself 🤔 I had friends in many different circles, but was never really part of a larger community or tribe. I knew that this was a missing piece in my wellness puzzle, and felt the pull to further explore this 🙊   I started attending several different women’s circles and gatherings, and regularly went to the one at HYA YOGA that was run by Imogen Bailey from Honouring Heart ❤❤   Each time I …

Who Am I?

Who Am I? Have you ever asked yourself this question? 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️ Do you define yourself a certain way, with descriptions, labels and concepts? 😎 What comes after your “I am”?? ✌🤩 Your occupation? Gender? Age? Your family role? Your interests or character traits? Something else? 🤸‍♂️🤸‍♂️🤓 Have you looked at what is underneath all these things that are placed after the “I am”? The I Am itself? 🤔 The I Am is the pure being of our nature. Our essence. The Self. True nature. Consciousness. Pure awareness. Love. Everything and simultaneously nothing. A transcendence of language and concepts. It just “is.” ❤❤ All the other things …

Belonging: Is it “out there” or within??

This seems to be part of the universal human condition and is incredibly relevant when it comes to my work in women’s circles. With disconnection and separation (from Self/other/the same), comes concepts that we recognise as sense of belonging, fitting in, lone wolf, individualism, and so on. I went through a natural distancing of longtime close friendships many years ago, once I started walking down the path of health and wellness. I found myself in a place of not knowing where I “fit in” or who my close friends were anymore. This was my life for a couple of years, …

Earthing

E A R T H I N G 🌀🌀🌀 The surface of the earth has an electromagnetic field and so does everything in nature, including us. We are electromagnetic beings. Our cells are electrically charged. Our heart is an electromagnetic organ. Our nervous system runs on electrical currents. This is why we can feel an energetic connection through the heart, tune into a certain electromagnetic frequency, get electrocuted or struck by lightning. 🌀 The Earth 🌏 has always been our home, but there has been disconnection for a long time. Earthing/grounding is now becoming a “thing”… The idea is, contact …
