Balance Your Being

balance your beingYoga and ayurvedic traditions teach that the key to holistic well-being is balance.

The gunas are three aspects of nature present in all beings: tamas, earth, rajas, fire, sattva, light. Tamas creates a sense of stability and strength; inner trust, and faith; arising to stillness and serenity within. Tamas is the strong foundation that enables you to grow towards the infinite sky. Rajas has the energy of fire, dynamism, power, radiance and shine. Like the energy of the sun, rajas lifts tamas from the deep earth towards bright blue sky, infusing colour and vibrancy into life. Fire is the radiance of self, the brightness of being, your inner shine. Rajas fire, becomes tejas, light. Sattva is the luminosity of the soul, the serenity of spirit, the light of divine essence.

Celebrating Advanced Yoga Certification

Svadyaya is the fourth niyama of Patanjali’s Eight Limbs of Yoga. ‘Sva’ means the Self and ‘Adyaya’ means lesson or reading; therefore, we bare witness to the Self through internal enquiry, meditation and yogic scriptures.

The journey of yoga is a deep dive into all aspects of the whole being: body, mind, heart and spirit. Svadyaya attunes us with the authentic Self, expanding our thoughts and hearts beyond limited perspectives, opening the sky of our highest potential. Read More…

Namaste Nepal

Gentle Heart

Mountain steps fall softly to the Earth,
Light hearts lift to the open skies,
Serenity blossoms like the mountain flower,
Rivers cry soft tears within their eyes.

Himalayan hills, soaring eagles fly,
Green valleys roll below the mountains high,
Vast forests weave textured shades of green,
Rhododendrons bloom, bursting colour to the sky.
