Global Yoga Journeys...

Our Bali Yoga Spa Wellness Retreats are over for another year. It's alway so hard to leave.

Here's a guest relaxing in the jacuzzi after a deluxe massage at a beautiful 6-star spa we journey to. You can see why it's hard to imagine being anywhere else...

Ubud is such an inspiring place to connect in yoga. Even with the renewed busy-ness from the 'Eat Pray Love' hype, it continues to be a place of peace, and it's the generous spirit of the people that make it so. It's so easy to journey deep into our yoga practice despite - or maybe because of - the cacophony of sounds - roosters, birds, motorbikes, gamelon. The continual hum is like a meditation, reminding us we're alive and connected...

Our Bali Radiance Retreat guests often bring donations for the local children and the natural birthing centre we donate to. This year our second retreat group bought an abundance of much needed babies clothes, stationary, books, etc as well as money. All so very much appreciated. Terimah Kasih to all...

What I'm Loving

I was so relieved to find Snack It Out, an informative recipe booklet packed with healthy kids snack & lunch box ideas as well as easy meals, juices, dips and lots of naturally sweet treats such as cashew cream, seed bars, apricot balls, muffins, etc. Every recipe offers simple goodness, tasty, healthy food bursting with colour and flavour and so easy to make. There's lots of inspiring colour photos too, which makes the experience fun. So happy to have this available in the Radiance Shop. Click here to order

Also available in the Radiance Shop is Veet's Cuisine, put out by a Byron Bay cook who caters for health retreats and events. There's over a 100 gluten free vegetarian recipes with vegan options and lots of healthy tips that will get you inspired. The recipes have all been tried, tested and loved by hundreds of Veet's clients. Click here to order

I've just created Radiance Retreats Facebook Page, a space to share retreat photos, yoga posture tips and inspiring feedback about people's yoga journey and Radiance Retreat experience.

Simple Inspiration & Restoration...

I recently attended a yoga workshop with Caroline Coggins (from The Yoga Centre in Sydney). Oozing strength and beauty, I really enjoyed the woman-ness of Caroline's teachings. With so much knowledge to share Caroline teaches with such earthiness, grace and ease. The journey was an affirmation. Thanks Byron Iyengar Yoga Lounge for hosting her.

One of the simple postures we experienced was Forward Virasana with the chest (sternum bone) resting on a block. Tricky to describe without a photo but here's a photo of Forward Virasana. Imagine the sternum bone resting onto a yoga block.

 

rest & restore

It doesn't sound like much but when the heart is supported like this the restorative affect is powerful. Simple yet so good...as it should be. Give it a go. So nice to nurture yourself...
