I am blessed to have yoga in my life and I know many teachers and students feel the same. I have been touched by the support I have received in building my dream of being able to share the wonderful gifts yoga has to offer and now, I am thrilled to have an opportunity to give back to the community through our new Community Yoga class.

I recently took this cake to a workshop and I was inundated with requests for the recipe. It is a ripper for the gluten intolerant, and for those of us who just like chocolate cake.

Our Autumn Mindful Yoga day is just around the corner and is already half full.

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.

I am always excited to have Paul in Bendigo. This time he will be offering an Early Morning Intensive and a 3 Day Retreat. Last year's intensive was a huge hit and quite a few of those who came along have already booked for this year.

Each year at the Annual End of Year Restorative session, we are always asked about recipes for the yummy treats we serve at the end of the class. This year was no exception.

Janet Lowndes and I are very excited to again be leading this retreat in tropical Far North Queensland. The Sanctuary Retreat Centre, set on 50 acres of lush tropical rainforest, overlooks the Coral Sea at Mission Beach and has its own secluded beach. A gorgeous place and time to escape the Victorian winter and a chance to rejuvenate your heart and mind.
