They have stocktake, and they couldn’t move it. Disappointing! But you can still get your yoga on at home, or in the park. Some great home practice ideas here. And here. And some restorative yoga here. Have a great week.

Today is Cooking School Day for the retreaters. Why is it that my yoga events are always so much about food? Ah well. Food is nice. Nice food is really nice. Image via. Ubud is a wonderful place for food. Just ask our full bellies. Or consult this city guide that was on Design Sponge [...]
So, you know I am leaving for retreat today right? I can’t POSSIBLY have mentioned it before. I’m not looking forward to it or anything. Cough. Not at all. All is in readiness, the Light Up Your Life books are printed (by the wonderful Tanja, who has helped me immeasurably with the admin for this [...]
Ladies and gentlemen (although, according to the survey, you blokes are severely in the minority). This happens to m all the time. I decide things are going to be a certain way… And then they aren’t.

The Yoga Sutras, the philosophical texts on which much of our modern yoga is based, are most preoccupied with reducing dukham, suffering, and increasing ease. That’s pretty [...]
One of peoples’ major requests in the survey was that I share more about how I came to be a yoga teacher, and more about how I make a living at it. I’ve written before about how I became a yoga teacher and now I’m unemployable at anything else, so I HAVE to make it [...]
Suzy Taylor and I think the same way. That’s why we often work together. She believes in sovereignty too. As, IMHO (okay, maybe not so humble) all good teachers should. Also, she’s funny. I like that. Read on to find out EXACTLY what she thinks: A yoga practice is an individual thing. It is about you [...]
This guest post by my friend Jenifer Parker came out of the conversation we had after my bunfight. This, she tells me, is how she’d express her views on being a yoga teacher, and the lateness thing.
