I hope you're journeying healthily into the new year; taking care of your self with yoga, walking, nourishing meals, time in stillness, connecting with nature and with others...
Our NYE & January Retreats were beautiful and inspiring gatherings. We shared so much wonderful yoga, stillness, chanting, walking and delicious organic meals. Thanks to all who came.

Summer Yoga, staying cool:
There are many ways to keep cool with yoga in summer. Forward bending postures cool the bodies systems as do restorative yoga postures and simply sitting in stillness and focusing on slowing down the breath. Breathing in, breathing out. Cooling the mind and body before bed helps move us into a restful space for sleeping...
Cooling forward bending postures ..
Coming up next is my February 17th - 23rd Byron Bay Yoga Cleanse & Restore Retreat staying 4 nights at the beautiful Sangsurya Retreat. Stepping on retreat takes quite a bit of organising and energy and for many 4 nights is feeling a bit short - and so after February my Byron Bay Retreats will be 5 nights (and 6 night retreats for the Dec and Jan Retreats). And so the next 5 night Retreat in Byron Bay is my April 22nd - 27th Byron Bay Yoga Cleanse & Restore Retreat.
In touch on Retreat in Byron Bay over the new year...

What I'm Loving
I'm sharing 20 minutes of yoga with my daughter's Class 5 as part of their main lesson on India. Amongst some chatter and wriggling are moments of stillness, inner connection and joy. I wish I could continue on with them all year as I believe what the Dalai Lama says is true about teaching our children meditation and to find peace within:
"If every 8 year old in the world is taught meditation, we will eliminate violence from the world within one generation." The Dalai Lama
