I am so honoured to have Paul share his beautiful writing with us. Please enjoy, with love.

We are called again and again into the grace of living.

This precious invitation is constant. It is not that we don’t know the spacious ease of freedom … we feel it all the time. We feel it in the warm glance of our beloved, in the first soft openings of a new day, standing before a stunning work of art, or transfixed before a sunset. 

Afterwards we may say ‘Oh that was beautiful’ and move on, but if we are curious, we might notice something else at play.

Meditation and Yoga go hand it hand. In fact, many people don't see it as Yoga AND Meditation at all but as one and the same. It really doesn't matter, meditation has a hold in the west and all I can say is, it's about time!

These days of Mindful Yoga are a chance to really honour yourself. To look after yourself, to nurture yourself and to spend some time deeply relaxing and resting. Nourishing yourself in this way allows you to let go of any stored tension or emotional stress, filling yourself up with positive energy which can then be shared with those around you.

Our recent Anatomy workshops with Kaye Tribe have been fantastic, and not just for the wonderful, easy way Kaye explains anatomy. Our afternoon teas have been delicious.

The Spiced Nuts, my old favourite, and Karen's Lumberjack cake have been the most popular.

The wonderful Paul Wooden will be back in Bendigo in October to lead a Five Day Early Morning Intensive.

It will be a wonderful opportunity to deepen your practice and get a taste of practicing every day. Paul is a remarkable teacher. He has been teaching Yoga for over 20 years and travels the world teaching retreats and intensives. I am so thrilled to have him here again to share his wisdom with us. 

Join us for an exploration of yoga asana,  pranayama and meditation. Over 5 consecutive morning sessions we will be experimenting with bringing a seamless integrity to our practice by refining perception and action. We will acheive this by deepening the relational connection with everything we do.
