Prana Poem 

Prana is not only about the breath, it’s also about the environment in which we surround ourselves. Consider the food you eat, the people you share your time with, your relationship to plants and animals, the prioritising of your activities. 

The energy you gather and take into yourself nourishes your own life-force. Ask yourself how you can provide a fertile growing media for that seed within you that wants to emerge. 

What’s in your pod?

30 Day Challenge: Home Retreat 

Self-Love, care and nurturing is the most important love, we all know this. Sometimes we need to intensely focus through retreat from the everyday. Sometimes a day, a weekend, at other times a longer respite is needed. 

After observing an energy drop and a tendency for inflammation/illness in my system and a growing need to express artistically I decided to devise a home retreat for myself, and to take an extended period off. This has been difficult to do, my clients still want massages and yoga, I’ve just met an awesome new man, socialising, activist commitments etc all need to go on hold, especially during the first week.

For the month of July classes will pause and I am creating a space for myself to explore my creativity, clean-out and go deep into my personal yoga practice. 

Week One: reset, I will use yoga practices to revive my life force.

Week two: perspective, reassessing my focus in life and how I will be my empowered, unique self.

Week three: simplify, create, playful approaches to everyday activities.

Week four: integrate ideas into daily life and share knowledge with others.

Skinny dip



I’m looking forward to this time to nurture my art and envision a different format for offering yoga practices to my local community and online. 

In the meantime, keep your inner-flame burning, your heart and toes warm, try simmering grated ginger and sliced lemon together and add some honey for soothining sweetness. 

 I will see you the last week in July. ❤️ Liz

 We shared a deliciously healthy treat tonight after yoga, giving one of my favourite Aussie-Chinese restaurant entrees the vegetarian treatment. We all agreed this one was better than usual pork or chicken version! Try it 🙂 I think you’ll love it too.

Equinox: a time to balance

The 23rd Sept is equal day and night hours, it is the equinox. A time to reflect on how we can bring balance to our lives.

Our yoga class gives us the opportunity to observe with total attention. This is something to aim for in all of life’s activities, however, in our yoga practice we can train for such concentration. You may have heard it referred to as ‘Mindfulness’, a concept from Buddism, embraced by western psychology, and gone totally mainstream.

At the Equinox you may become aware that you are more energetic or aware of the need to stop and smell the new blooms. A strong sense of what is needed for this balance maybe available if you listen.

Instead of making a judgement when observing your body or mind-heart or life force,  trying to discover why or how any imbalance has occurred, make a resolution to simply take action.

If possible try this yoga posture now. Eg Tadasana, Mountain pose: Stand with your feet under your hips, lift the toes and spread them, place them down. Bring your attention to the big toe ball, the little toe ball and the heel, the sides, inside and outside of the feet. Observe the other muscles that may support the function of the feet. Resolve to stand evenly on your feet and sway back, forward, side to side and activate muscles that ensure you feel the three arches of the feet.

Eg2 If your mind is distracted gently focus on the architecture of your body and your proprioception, where your body is in space. Your spinal alignment. Where your centre is. Weight evenly diatributed. Follow your breath, relax and use your dristi, your gentle gaze, to focus on the task at hand.

Balance Meditation

Bring attention to the spaces around you and release from the sensual experiences.

Three deep sighs and release attention from the breath and move to the body.

Alternate attention at each side of the body (from the extremities inward guided relaxation).

Rest at the heart centre, just observe the energy at the centre of the chest.

Release attention from the body and move to the place of thought, imagination &memory.

Come to present moment awareness.

Imagine you are perfectly still , balanced and serene floating in lake with a sand bottom, the sky reflecting a turquoise hue, …………… enveloped in the colour, light, buoyant and refreshed.

Allow your focus to move to any imbalance you have observed in your body, mind-heart or energy.

If and when you make such and observation, do not chase thoughts of explanation, although euphonies and realisations may spontaneously occur. Just observe without criticism, without judgement, perhaps being a little light-hearted about “Oh look how I do that?” being curious, “That’s interesting how I respond that way”.

From here you may like to enquire into how to allow balance to arise in your body, mind-heart, energy. “how can I take action to redress the imbalance??”

Once again do not chase an answer. It may come now, it may come later when you awareness returns to the place of asymmetry or imbalance in everyday life.

Trust that you have all the tools to know what action to take within you.

Just resolve now to take action when it is clear what action will be helpful.

Release and traces of this observation and enquiry into serene blue of that lake that surrounds you.

Rest now in silence.
