As a yoga teacher, this is a healthy and humble article to post.  I have had a long journey with yoga, and have been gifted with humility as a result.  Believe me, I did not arrive at adulthood knowing how to love, nor how to transmit compassion, nor how to respect other people’s limitations, beliefs Read More

Let your yoga sing

Why practise? It is well and good to analyse the physiological and anatomical reasons for practising hatha yoga.  It is well and good to tell you why you ought to practise and what you ought to do.

Yoga for breast cancer

My path until here, from here on… Weaving the strings of our lives together into a coherent pattern, our unique tissue, might be the best objective we can strive for in this life. I am a Gemini.  I have a lot of interests.  At times, it seemed as if they might pull me to pieces.  Yoga. Read More

Article in the Independent – The Busy Man's Guide to Broga

In the ever evolving world of occidental yoga, “broga” is making a thrust for the hairier sex with a longing to loosen up.  Yes, those guys who call each other “bro“, probably knocking fists as they do so, are starting to understand why one can’t transition from a youth filled with high-intensity competitive sports like Read More
