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.

Inspirational Italy

13‘Stay Inspired’ was a teaching that I received at the end of a beautiful yoga class a few years ago, a message I hold close to my heart. We live in an exquisite world, blessed by natural beauty, colourful culture and humanity’s loving heart. We are truly blessed to be alive. Sometimes we are so absorbed in the intricacies of our lives that we miss the bigger picture, the inspirations, the teachings that are around us at every moment. Read More…

Free to Flow Yoga Retreat

11Brooklands Barn, Arundel, West Sussex, 29 – 31 May 2015

River flows to ocean waves, a fairy tale castle in the distance ~ I left my soul down by the sea.

The journey of yoga creates a path for you to explore the beauty of your body, your breath, your being on the simplicity of a yoga mat. Momentarily, there is a shimmering glimpse, an insight into the loving, blissful, light that is your soul. These fleeting experiences lighten our hearts, yet we are quickly absorbed into the distractions of daily life.

Indian Colours

India-

Indian colours that dance for the sun,
Soft light on the dawn of day,
The soul in the sky, an infinite blue,
Skyline of palms, an emerald wave.

Golden sands of sun light rays,
Rhythms of rolling ocean,
Waves like pearls in folds of silk,
Soft pink sun in dancing motion. Read More…
