“Yoga doesn’t change what we see. Yoga transforms the way we see things.” OH YEAH YOGI WISDOM YEAH.
Tuesday was a good day! Started with a psychiatry appointment, in which I was officially discharged! The psychiatrist believes that with continued psychological therapy, practicing mindfulness and my commitment to getting mentally stronger, I no longer require anti-psychotics, mood stabilisers or an overseeing psychiatrist. I am being prescribed anti-depressants, but more to curb my impulsivity than anything else.
I have episodes still - and I may continue to do so for the time being. Just because I’ve come off drugs doesn’t mean I am ‘cured’. However, generally speaking, over the last few weeks, I have been less volatile, less violent, and more capable to manage my downs. I’m less of a scare to my partner, family and psychiatric team. No hallucinations, no attempts, no voices. I’ve worked hard at this. I’m proud. Imagine that!
I was on a high from that news, so I went to the gym after! I KNOW RIGHT. I trained legs for the first time in eons but I actually steered clear of the squat rack. I want to ease myself back into it. Slow and steady.
Nutrition wise, I am definitely trying not to demonise myself or my food, but it’s really hard. I make good choices 80% of the time, but the other 20%… 🥐🍔🌭🍟
I jump on the scales every morning (I know, I know, it’s not healthy and I need to stop. Josh, hide the scales somewhere I can’t find them please) and the number is slowly creeping up. It’s concerning, but I just can’t seem to not inch towards carbs! Noodles, bread, fries! MY FRIENDS, MY BEAUTIFUL STARCHY BROWN FRIENDS.
I am considering a fat fast next week and skipping my social outings to ensure I’m not tempted but I am worried about doing that. It would be worse if I kicked myself into ketosis hardcore and then gave it all up again. My body can’t take it.
My actual fasting is doing well tho. I’ve hit at least 15hrs since Friday. Hopefully soon I get my shit together well and truly and scale numbers decrease and fasting hours increase!!
I’ve come out hot yoga sweddy, gross and invigorated. It’s a shower, the office and food for me now! ♻️
WHY MEDITATE? "Clarity is part of the mind from the beginning, a natural awareness. Just acknowledge it, simply notice that you're aware. At any given moment, you can choose to follow the chain of thoughts, emotions, and sensations that reinforce a perception of yourself as vulnerable and limited or to remember that your true nature is pure, unconditioned, and incapable or being harmed." - Mingyur Rinpoche
. Meditation does not have to be hard, you just have to show up and continue showing up. There are amazing apps available (my favs @insighttimer
), meditations on @spotify
and classes all around you if you look!
But really all you need to do is be still, pay attention to your breath, and release.
Or if you've built up a fear wall around it and want some support, come along tonight 5:45pm in Scarborough for a beautiful mantra meditation. I'd love to see you there 💕🙏

Full moon report fri 23/11/2019 1.39pm west Oz time...
This full moon brings everything back to balance, and imbalance all over again.. it can be a time of spiritual resetting, the space that quantum physics refers to as nothingness from which all is created...of intense anger, or tears, of deep healing or the ripping apart...only to be reformed into something new and Fresh... a time where things feel simultaneously synchronised as if you understand the very fabric of life, your in exactly the right space at the right time, then nec minute as if it is all crumbling apart...and you have no god damn idea - and please get me out of this headspace immediately...how do I get out of here????? Events happening around this time have epic repercussions across lifetimes and timelines, reverberating outwards from the planet across all space and time.
It is the time and space for stepping into the heart space, moving beyond our fears, for bringing it back to the baby steps... what is happening right here, right now. What am I feeling, what am I experiencing, what can I touch, taste, hear, see, smell and feel right now... what exists in this present moment and what thoughts are creating separation from love right now. What do I need to let go of.. ?where do I direct my ho oponoopono ? What can I connect to... what are the nature spirits, the animals, trees and plants telling me right now?
I have been practicing (sometimes not so well) and teaching much around the mantra ‘be here now’ in a determined effort to mainly remind myself that all I (we)?have is this present moment. We are not guaranteed anything more. So why waste this precious moment being caught in the past or projecting into the future? This only serves us to remain in our mindscape, the ultimate distraction, Complication and diversion from the Heart 💔.True unity begins from within, from creating the bridge from the mind to the heart... More in comments - hope to see you on Sunday at ‘honouring the Divine Feminine’ full moon yoga and sound @soulcoastyoga
2-3.30pm book tix at the venue...❤️💕❤️
Shanti shanti shanti 🙏🙏🙏
Inner peace, balance and harmony 🕉

Compassion is the answer. It doesn’t matter what the question is. .
We’re repeatedly told by external influences that we need to be something different to be worthy. When we live our lives according to these constructs and limitations, we begin to feel lost, unworthy and doubt our ability to be loved. .
Our ego thrives while we exist in a fear-state but loving ourselves and gifting ourselves compassion brings us closer to our purpose. It is only from a place of love that we truly begin to shine. .
Have you ever committed yourself to a project, a job or a relationship that you were insanely passionate about and you were able to thrive beyond your wildest dreams? That’s because everything done in love is done well. .
Majority of people these days are stressed and anxious. Maybe you’re one of them? I know I am from time-to-time. Why? Because we’re encouraged to live from a place of ego, without even realising. In this unintentional ego-state we seek approval from sources outside ourselves rather than looking within. .
It is not until we release our judgements and extinguish fear with compassion that we begin to experience what it’s like to unconditionally love ourselves. GET READY! This will create space for the real magic occur💫 .
If you’ve spent years criticising yourself and you’re still feeling lost, I invite you to open your heart to compassion. I encourage you to be gentle and forgiving with yourself. Truly having compassion for yourself means that you love the unwanted parts just as much as the portion you deem ‘acceptable’. .
Compassion is the answer. Who cares what the question is.

This is a gorgeous, soothing, guided meditation by the Founder of Yoni Pleasure Place @rosie.rees
Few experts debate the benefit of exercise. If you're like me, exercise is not something that came easily.
I was bullied as a child and was always picked last for team sports, so these experiences in my formative years made me associate exercise with pain and stress. It wasn't until later in life that I found a good fit with movement. For me it is yoga.
The point of this post is that if you haven't found something that works for you, try something different. If you hate running, try pilates. If gyms and crowds make you feel uncomfortable, find a small facility and go during off peak times, or youtube @fitnessblender
workouts. If you are social, try team sports. Love to dance, and looking for a date night idea? Why not combine the 2 and hit your movement goals at a Salsa class. If you're like me, and enjoy time alone with your breath and moving meditation, yoga or taichi might resonate. Dont forget that walking counts too. I always try to get some time in nature with a walk along the coast when the weather permits.
The right fit is out there, you just need to keep searching. Dont persist with something you hate. The mental energy you expend hating what you are doing, probably offsets any if the benefits you experience from exercise.

Bringing my yoga essentials with me everywhere I go 🦋 🙏. I studied music at school and it was my favourite of my five TEE subjects 🤓 🎻 (maths was my second favourite of course 🤫➕➖✖️). We were a class of 7 elite musicians @penrhoscollege
🎶 and to this day I'm still friends with my fellow musos @nicolazawill @kynacosmonaut @corinnecowlingsoprano @rachael_marie @cheralyn5507
Honestly though, practicing my instruments was SO hard 😭 (this might be how yoga feels like sometimes), I really dreaded needing to do it every day. Who knew music would come back around. As one of my wise students @msdandav
said, "it really never left your life". As a result, now I'm with my harmonium 🎹, my chanting 🎶 and my singing bowl ✨wherever I go. Perhaps I'm answering to the ancient Indian sages 📿who once called out to us to help get our hearts synchronised 💙❤️🧡.
9.15am - Yin Yoga with @selflove_yoga

A quick, easy and super effective Pilates routine for the hips and glutes. Repeat on each side, making sure your stabilize your trunk and hips as you move your legs 👌🏼 Tightness in the hips is so common these days. Our daily lives (with lots of sitting down) just don’t allow us the regular range of motion we need to keep our hips feeling good long term.
Our hips are the workhorse of our bodies, and tightness can cause lower back and knee pain, as well as make it difficult to do simple things like sit cross legged on the floor!
We need to consistently give our hips a full range of motion by practicing exercises like this at home in between our Pilates or yoga classes. Psst - these also help to build a killer booty! Enjoy 😘
A long breathe out.
An afternoon of stillness in the sun.
The moment just after you make love and you’re still intertwined, the world at a standstill.
A cup of tea and honey at the end of the day.
Taking a sacred pause is so vital to recharging your feminine essence.
When you forget these pauses you start to unravel. Everything feels hard or too much.
It doesn’t have to be long, hard or even something special. Just something that gives you space again. That lets your whole body sigh in relief and release.
These should be a part of your daily schedule and to do list.
The modern sacred feminine never feels guilty for time to replenish. She’s knows it’s an investment in her radiance and wellbeing.
Join me for a collective sacred pause on the 30th Nov for a sacred women’s circle to honour this year, and set an intention for 2019. Details in highlighted story and bookings please DM. Exchange $48 for two hours of space holding and sacred pause. X
The weather is heating up and it's almost time for the SUMMER OF YOGA to kick off ☀️🔥
Will you be joining us?

Because smoothies must taste better with a rose gold straw right? 🙏🏼 Have you started taking your own bag to the markets instead of using single use plastic?
