Yoga at Alex Beach Pose

As we progress through the 2018, breathe slowly.

Posted by & filed under Blog.

Gosh! we are nearly at the end of February, 2018 is proving to be moving at a rapid pace, with the humidity and rain curling even the straightest hair.

We are challenged daily with external factors, whether it be uncomfortable heat or steamity as I like to call it, or maybe the constant fear tactics from the media and the government.

Its hard not to be effected and a little exhausted by it.

The message I would like to put out there is just do your best and expect that standard to change daily.

We are different everyday and a little time each morning to check in with you will help you understand yourself.

Stop!! breathe slowly and from your belly.

Close your eyes and breathe in happiness to your heart then breathe out tension and negativity.

Exercise daily alternate yoga and some other form of activity.

Eat healthy food made with your hands.

Sleep for at least 7 hours.

Try to cut out using plastic and feel like you are helping our creatures of the world, this will bring goodness back to you.

We will chat again in March stay on track and love the you that YOU are.

How to reboot my brain and body in 15 mins

Posted by & filed under Blog.

Often we say, my brain is too busy and my body is too tired.  So what to do???


We want to connect the brain and body so they are running at the same rate, this can be done in as little as 15minutes, so whats your excuse.

Here are 3 ways to do just that.

1. Go outside,  straight away your senses will be alerted, nature will make you feel grounded , walk around the block,

focusing on breathing from the belly through your nose for 15 minutes


2. Listen to music with your eyes half closed, breathing from the belly through your nose,as you walk around the room slowly at an even pace.


3. Stand up near a window if possible , stretch your arms up in the air while breathing in through your nose ,then as you exhale through your nose, sweep the arms behind your back and link the hands, opening the chest and feeling the space in your heart.

Repeat this up to 5 times .

Do any of these daily for a week and let me know if it helps…..

Why would it work because we are made of organic matter and absorb everything around us, we need time to file away information, to have a clear thinking brain and we need to use our bodies in some way to release tension, toxins ect to help the blood flow and even out the rubbish from the good stuff.


You will forget where you are up to and will take too long to get back into the mood to work.


The brain will be fresh and the body relaxed ,so ideas will flow at a much faster rate,

happiness is activated and negativity will be lifted, you will feel in control of your mind and body.

Being busy and not taking regular breaks, may make you feel like you are accomplishing so much, but really you are going over old ground a lot of the time, making mistakes and overlooking the obvious .

This teaches the brain to stay activated or wired , so the body releases the hormone cortisol because it feels threatened or stressed, the body and mind need to take a break, so allow yourself time to reboot and start this practice today.

You will sleep better, preform better , and be much happier.

Make the time to find peace!

In the silence of the morning, just before the sun rises is a time when your thoughts have not yet started to zoom around your brain.

This is the perfect time for meditation and light yoga, so you can start each day fresh with a clear mind and a limber body.

I like to finish each day with the sunset to remind myself to bring closure to events, thoughts and decisions of the day.

I am lucky to see the sunset while my evening yoga class is on and I feel this creates a significant impact on the body and mind connection.

The sunset re enforces the need to let go of the stuff each day brings even though some altercations or actions though the day have made us uncomfortable or angry or fearful.

As humans we are organic and our bodies will absorb peoples words and actions everyday. If you let this build up within you, it creates a stressful environment mentally and physically. We must learn to let go of all events daily, this is why it feels so good to  unwind the body through yoga so the mind follows and both become relaxed and calm.

We are reminded that our wellbeing is of upmost importance and nothing is more vital than health and happiness.

Love yourself and set yourself free through yoga.

Namaste !



Do the best you can keep moving and believe in yourself.

Positive thinking and flowing movements can help interupt pathways the brain has produced to create pain within the body.

We can change these pathways by focusing on shifting the pain by moving through it with  flowing movements and opening painful areas with the healing breathe. Literally peeling  the layers away.

Once the brain learns the body has pain it sends a signal to that area, sometimes the brain keeps producing this signal even when the injury has healed.

The signal actually gets stronger as the brain gets better and better at producing this signal, this is where positive thinking and focusing on disrupting the signal will eventually stop the pain cycle without using drugs.

Yoga has been praised for helping people mindfully use the breathe to free the body of pain, people  then realise the power of  the brain as its forced to be in the moment where there is no pain and from there bringing control back into their lives.

This can start with a simple positive thought of happiness by smiling to reflect what you want the body to feel helps to make it real.



Winter to hide from the cold or to face the music…..

Gloomy skies cool days, cold nights sounds like Winter.  The presence of Winters cloak of grey definitely  makes it harder to be enthusiastic but the best thing for the body in Winter is to move and keep warm.

The joints feel a little stiffer and we feel a little tighter but if we practice our yoga regularly, the body will not suffer so much through the cooler months.

If anything we should do more yoga, it activates the immune system to keep us well from the flu season and  strengthens the circulatory system as well as loads more treats for our bodies.

Vinyasa is a perfect form of yoga for the cooler months building warm and energy quickly.

Coming to class during those Winter months will help you enjoy these winter months and before you know it, the warm days will return.

so chin up and lets Yoga On!
