Yoga and pubs 

I remember when there used to be a pub on what seemed like every corner.


When I started my yoga life in India 30+ years ago there was not a lot of awareness of yoga and some would even make a “joke” and call it yoghurt.


Now there is almost a yoga teacher on every corner! That’s great that many people on the planet are evolving into a higher sensitive & aware vibration. Yoga really is a sustainable answer to good balanced  health and wellbeing. 


If you are new to yoga and thinking of joining a class that’s fantastic and  if your heart gets touched by yoga you will have what I believe the best tool on the planet that you can use anytime and anywhere for free!


Just a word of caution who you entrust your body, heart and mind too – if it’s that yoga teacher on the corner where the pub used to be – make sure they are well skilled – and not just looking good – yoga  is not a competition of how well you can do a posture or what the person next to you is doing – nor should you push yourself too hard – yoga is a “work in” not a “work out.” 


The gift of Yoga is the bridge between the body, heart and the mind so that you know what’s going on down there. 

Ayurveda says dis-ease comes in 6 stages – if you truly take the time to breathe and listen – you will hear your body talk to you and you will become your own doctor – you will recognise when you are out of balance, & Ayurveda can teach you skills on how to bring yourself back into balance.


I think balance is the quest of life – the planet is spinning and tilted so of course there is no static state of balance and perfection – but this beautiful 5000+ year old science Yoga Ayurveda gives us the skills – yoga ayurveda can cost no money to live  – your health really is in your own hands.

I remember in my  20’s I never thought that my body would change and as a result so would my practice – I heard my teacher say it would happen – and I didn’t believe it could happen to me – but life happens and from my experience the more you can look after yourself in your younger years the easier the transition will be. Having a healthy, body and mind is our vehicle for this life – look after it – no one else will.
